Quinn signs Illinois’ new ‘cupcake’ regulations

Published: Wednesday, June 11, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

TROY (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn has signed the “cupcake bill,” which was introduced after a young girl’s home baking operation was shut down by regulators.

Quinn signed the legislation Tuesday in 12-year-old Chloe Stirling’s home in Troy. He praised her for making a difference in a cause she believes in.

Chloe used her $200-a-month home-based baking business, “Hey Cupcake!”, to provide treats for friends and fundraisers. Madison County health officials shut it down in January.

The law requires sellers to tell consumers the product was made in a home, among other things. The law applies to home kitchen businesses making less than $1,000 monthly. It takes effect immediately.
