A Little Background

My mom taught me how to make pies and treats when I was a teenager. (She is a real pie crust snob!)  I enjoy baking, but I REALLY enjoy eating the fruits of my labor!  I'm a stay at home mom of 4 young kids.  Over the years, I've had lots of practice in baking for my family.  After receiving positive feedback from friends regarding my baking skills, and a few paid gigs, I thought I would offer my services to more people.  By trade, I am a dental assistant, and love that, but am not interested in working outside of the home at this point in my life.  I began looking into state regulations for selling food from your home.  Baking from home is the most convenient for me since I have young kids to take care of.  This way, I don't have to worry about school delays/cancellations interfering with my work schedule ( I'm used to working while sword fights are going on behind me), I can do a lot of baking while my baby sleeps, and I don't need to send kids to daycare.

Zoned Out

I have been researching health department documents, working on branding, perfecting recipes, comparing costs, figuring ingredient prices per tablespoon and ounce...  I thought I had everything in order for me to bake at home and sell my food at a roadside stand in my front yard.  

Well, turns out, there is a zoning issue.  In order to continue business I need to pay to meet with zoning board to see if they will approve me to use the land for business, even though it is zoned for agriculture.  Thankfully, there is a high chance of it being approved.  The application and fee are due March 5th and the hearing with the Board of Zoning Appeals is set for April 17th. 

The website  www.rollingpinbakehouse.com  has only been up and running for 3 weeks. I fear my Rolling Pin Bakehouse may be forced to close up shop before it has a chance to succeed. 

Goal

Our Kickstarter goal is $560.  That will cover the fee for the appeal application, a fee for state tax filing and some baking supplies.  For those of you who live in the area, in exchange for your generous funding, I will be offering rewards of homemade deliciousness for you to enjoy!  (Sorry, the health dept. doesn't allow me to mail or deliver  -Pick up only)  If you live out of the area, I am offering rewards of aprons and dishrags crafted by my sister, Macy.  I greatly, greatly appreciate your support!  Thank you to everyone!  

This is the apron STYLE you will get with an $80 pledge, but made with different fabric.

Risks and challenges

If we meet the goal by the end date (FEB. 20th), then I will file my application with the board. If the goal is not met, you will not be charged any money and I will be shutting down Rolling Pin Bakehouse. If we reach our goal, but the board does not approve my request on April 17th, I plan to apply at a local farmer's market this summer.
