Opening a home-based business in Canada

I know a woman who is extremely talented in making baked desserts. She wants to open a home-based business. How can she go about doing that in a city like Toronto? Are there any legal/accounting stuff that she needs to know about beforehand? Is there some sort of governmental health supervision program that needs to see the house where she does her work? Can you give me some tips on how she can go about selling her product legally?

Please give me ideas (ideally recipes) for showstopper pareve desserts.

I'm bringing dessert to a Rosh Hashanah dinner next month. In the past I have brought Apple Hill Cake (delicious, but homier than I'm looking for) and regular honey cake. I'll probably still bring a honey cake for tradition's sake, but I'd also like to bring something fancier this time. [more inside]

Help me spoil my little apple monster

This year when I host the Swan family's Easter celebration as I always do, I'd like to serve an apple-based dessert for the sake of one of my nieces, who LOVES anything apple. She doesn't seem to much like cake of any kind. She does love apple pie and apple crumble/crisp, but they seem too ordinary. What recipes do you have for a *special* apple-based dessert?

I want a beet-filled red velvet cake recipe!

Your best red velvet cake recipe! The caveat: I want to make it the traditional way, with red sugar beets instead of red food coloring. I've heard the beets add a moistness that simple cakes with food coloring cannot hold up to. Does anyone, anywhere, have tried-and-true recipes? I have Googled a few but know not their reliability.

Help finding a bee decoration

A friend of mine is starting a catering business focusing on sweets. She has decided that her theme for her menus, business cards, etc will be an in-motion bee. She would like to continue this theme to her desserts as kind of a signature. Any ideas where to find bulk quantities of a tastefully rendered bee that would look appropriate attached to, or set along side, a dessert. I'm picturing something the size of a quarter or half-dollar. Thanks in advance!

Pear Calzone Recipe

I need help reverse-engineering a dessert recipe. It was a pear calzone, with white chocolate inside with the pears. I can do the calzone dough no problem, but what do I do to soften up the pears (and do they need sugar like an apple pie?) and how do I bake it so the chocolate inside doesn't go all horrid?

What's a good picnic recipe using APPLES?

Today's theme ingredient is...APPLES! What apple-based dessert recipe would you recommend for a picnic? 1) I don't care much for the very tart varieties of apple (e.g., Granny Smith), so I prefer a recipe that uses, or at least works with, the less tart varieties. 2) There will be several hours between baking and serving, so it should be servable at room temperature. 3) I'm reasonably skilled in the kitchen; you need not shy away from more difficult recipes.
