The Cottage Food Law has restrictions – in Florida you are only allowed to make up to $15K a year, you need to display a label including all the ingredients used, you also need to let the consumer know that the cake was made in a Cottage Food opration that is not subject to Florida’s food safety regulations and lastly, you need to put your name and address on the label. They also have restrictions as to what you can make – but, at least you are allowed to start a modest home-based business to test the waters. If you are successful, you can branch out and rent out a commercial kitchen. I suggest that you contact the regulatory department in your State for their guidelines. Good luck!
