The Health Department in Madison County, Illinois, shut down a rogue bakery this week. The culinary culprit was an 11-year-old girl who made about $200 selling cupcakes. She hopes to use the money to open her own bakery someday, while she even gives to charity now.
When she made the local newspaper, the Health Department decided that her mother either needed to actually begin a licensed bakery or add a second kitchen to her house. Health Promotion Manager Amy Yeager said, “The rules are the rules. It's for the protection of the public health. The guidelines apply to everyone.” Indeed, there are few threats to public health quite as serious as an 11-year-old girl making cupcakes.
