Wait! Possible roadblocks in decorating sugar cookies as a business


Decorating sugar cookies is fabulously addicting, but...

...just when you thought this would be a cake cookie walk... there are some important factors to take into consideration.

For instance:

  • Are there cottage laws?
  • Is a commercial kitchen needed?
  • What about sales tax?
  • Are there tax liabilities?
  • Are there copyright laws?

Don’t let these items snatch your dream away.

Knowing answers to questions like these will ease your mind.

There are guidelines for help along the way.

I will have loads of information as well as answer important questions like these, though I'm no tax expert.

Know also that sugar cookie-ing can be quite expensive. There’s simply no end to what neat gadgets to buy, whether they are just fun or will save some serious time in the kitchen.

You won’t need a lot to get started though, thankfully.

Just the basics, like a toothpick instead of an icing scribe tool/icing needle tool. Even using a napkin or paper towel on a smooth surface can take the place of a cookie turntable. There are lots of shortcuts!

A must is knowing the piping tips for cookies to use. There are 6 nozzles you will need. These will give you the ability to do practically anything. 

The longer you decorate sugar cookies the more tools you want. That also is addicting!
