The specific foods that you will be able to prepare and sell as a cottage cook will be determined by the cottage food laws of the state that you live in. Each state has its own unique rules and regulations that home-based food entrepreneurs must accept.

As a home baker, there are various delicious treats that you can offer customers, including:
But that’s not all. You can also bake and sell mouthwatering Pastries, Pies, Pizzelles, Rolls, Scones, and Tortillas! Of course, you should check with your local health department to be sure about which foods you are allowed to offer for sale as a cottage cook in your state.
