Question by GooGurl43: Do I need a certain license for a home based Cake/Baking Business?
I want to start a small home based business where I can bake Cakes, cookies, mints, and other sweets to sell. I was wondering if I needing a certain kind of license for a commercial kitchen or for a small home business? Any information would be appreciated! (I’m from Iowa if that makes a difference.) Thanks!

Your home kitchen will have to pass inspection and be approved before you can sell products for consumption. You need to contact your county health department to start the process for approval and licensing. Don’t bother applying for and paying for a city license until you find out if you pass inspection.
