Welcome to the Little Backpack Bakery Blog!

At Little Backpack we love to experiment in the art of baking! All of our experimental goodies will be featured here as well as any little tips and tricks about the baking/decorating world we learn along the way!

We will also keep you up to date on the progress of our new website! Photos, menu, pricing and more are soon to come!

Thanks to a new Texas law, signed into place by Governor Rick Perry on June 17th, 2011, we can now sell baked goods from home (with certain restrictions of course!) 

Via "Bakery products and some other foods like jams, jellies, dried herbs and spices, granola, popcorn, and candy, are considered low-risk for spoilage because they are not able to support the growth of potentially harmful organisms and do not require refrigeration.  These foods are known as non-potentially hazardous. 22 other states have Cottage Food Laws.  The most recent states to enact these laws are Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, South Dakota, Texas and Washington State, in 2011 alone."

To check out the bill for yourself, click here. This new law goes into effect 9/1/2011, so until then, we here at the Little Backpack Bakery are working on some experimental projects while in the progress of getting our website up and running for business!

Please share any requests that you have for new experiments in the comments!
