It’s been a bit of a long haul, getting to this point. Going from “garage” to kitchen wasn’t a quick process, especially when working in such short stints of time. A few hours after the kids were in bed, the occasional weekend day, a rare visit from family which afforded several whole days to work. But really, I started the bulk of the renovation in January. And today, I can finally say, it is DONE. The health inspector just left, and he gave me his seal of approval to start baking. That means that I am officially an inspected commercial kitchen…..a pretty big deal, considering that making food from home, for profit, is highly frowned upon. But with a licensed, insured and inspected kitchen, doing things the right way (and in the health inspector’s good books) to me is the only way to do business.
My first order is being picked up on Sunday — an assortment of cookies for a birthday. An easy way to break in the new kitchen, I think.
And so, it’s time to take the good camera downstairs, and take a few photos before things start to get dusted in flour. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be in the cake studio, happy as a cupcake. 🙂
