Looking to raise money to be able to get proper licensing/zoning to make and sell baked goods out of my house!
I've always thoroughly enjoyed baking. It's something I do when I'm upset and stressed as a reprieve from the stress, when I'm bored to give me something to do, and when I'm in a good mood to expand my skills. My mom taught me a lot of the basic skills required to bake, and then for fun, I took some cake decorating classes with a friend 2 years back. I LOVED it! I've been making cakes ever since, and growing my baking repertoire as I go. I'd love to one day go to school for my pastry chef certification, and then to open my own bakery/coffeehouse, which will be founded upon Christian ethical principles.
My local borough is requiring me to call a zoning board hearing in order to <officially> start a home-based business. SUUUPER expensive! I'm looking for your help in raising the funds to do this so that I can go on to make my small business an official one! Please help me meet this goal - I'd be forever grateful! Plus, you'll get a gift when donating $10 or more!
Thanks so much for helping me start this long process of following my dreams. I know that God will provide if it's a direction He wants me to go in, and this may be a step in that process. :)
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Some of the risks of this project include being denied by the inspector or the zoning office. If I present a strong case to the zoning board and make sure I am well prepared for my inspection, I can eliminate a lot of the risk. I will have to work with my neighbors to ensure that they are on board with me baking in my home kitchen, which will help get zoning approved.
