Are you doing a cake stall ONLY?

If you are selling fully cooked cakes ( i.e not cheesecake) which are wrapped/covered and do not contain fillings made from fresh cream, custard or uncooked eggs your premises will be classified as a low risk activity. However, if you sell cakes containing fillings made from fresh cream and uncooked eggs, they are more risky and your premises classification will change to reflect this risk. If you are selling both types of cakes, your premises classification will be classified at the highest risk food handling activity.
