To legally sell home baked goods you would need some kind of permit or license from the city you live in, which could get very involved with inspections of your work area and ingredients. Usually the "rules" are strict, for good reason.
Otherwise, if you work outside the home you could take some treats to work for people to sample and tell co-workers they can be made to order. If you do not work outside the home perhaps a relative or friend could take in samples and get some interest for you by word of mouth. If you intend to put out flyers to the general public (people you or friends do not know) you should be certain to have everything "legal". (01/18/2008)
Do you have a lot of craft fairs or bazaars in your area? Around here, the Norfolk, VA area, you don't need a license to sell anything in places like that. There's usually an entrance fee, but it's not much. There's often people selling baked goods and candies at these shows. As for pricing, go to some of these shows and see what the going rates are.
