Do you live where you can legally bake out of your home kitchen? 

The way most of us got started was to bake up a storm and give them away for any occasion that came up in the family or community.  I took pictures and eventually cakes to the bank, dr. office, any where there were working people :)   Eventually someone one will ask if you will make them a cupcake cake or some highly decorated cookies so be ready with pricing.

Later on I made up flyers to put up in offices or breakrooms at hospital, nursing homes, insurance co - again anywehre there were working people - especially women.  Like for Val day I offered 10" heart cookies decorated w/sayings - titles of love songs - whatever - which I delivered to their office on Val day,  I made some that I would leave in the break room so they can see what the pic/flyer was all about.  For these cookies I was lucky enough to be able to purchase 10" plain pizza boxes to put the cookies in.  I made them from cake mix!  You get 3 of those large cookies from each mix.  HTH
