Texas Cottage Food Law

Did you know that before September 1, 2011 it was actually illegal to bake a cake in your home and sell it to someone, even someone you knew?

Texas bakers are very fortunate that we are now allowed to sell out baked goods with out having to build/buy a bakery or rent a kitchen.  This will allow hobby bakers that would like to make their family some extra money to do so, legally.

Even if you have heard of the Texas Cottage Food Law, visit and read over the law as well as the other great information they have on the website. 

Be sure to check out the FAQ section to give you more detailed information if you don’t quite understand the wording of the law.

Please make yourself familiar with the law, what is required of you, and what you can and can not legally do.  Remember just because we can now bake out of our kitchen doesn’t mean there are not any rules to follow.

You can also ‘like’ the Texas Baker's Bill on facebook. 

I can not and will not answer any legal questions or give legal advice when it comes to this law.  If you have any questions, a great starter place to ask is on the Texas Bakers Bill Facebook page or on the discussion forums on the 

I just wanted to share the information about this new law with everyone.
