Geiger's sessions and classes are open to all, from the novice to the highly skilled baker. "It's a New Year to live your passion" continues Geiger, "so as I often say, it's time to break out the spatulas and mixing bowls and start baking!"

Everyone raving about those home-baked sweet treats you made over the holidays? Come to think of it, year after year, are more requests made for your specialties with the question "When are you going to start your own business?" The New Year is the perfect opportunity to cook up your own economic stimulus package. Back by popular demand, Bringing Home the Baking author Quincella C. Geiger serves as the expert instructor of "How to Start Your Licensed Home-Based Baking Business," as part of Clayton State University's Center for Continuing Education.

The six-hour, three-session classes are conveniently scheduled throughout North Fulton County (Alpharetta, Roswell and Sandy Springs) and in Fayetteville throughout winter and spring 2009 and feature morning, afternoon and evening selections. From business basics and expectations to the various aspects of baking equipment, 24-year home-based baking veteran Geiger takes the guesswork out of perfecting a licensed home-based baking business.

"Years ago I made the decision to trade in my corporate 9-to-5 job and follow my passion for baking. I definitely relate to those who may have put their dreams on hold or who are just fearful of stepping out there," says Geiger. "I want others to experience the excitement, the challenges, and ultimately, the profitability of owning and operating a home-based baking business."

For those who want a sample of the continuing education class, Geiger will host a free one-hour information session on "Starting Your Licensed Home-Based Baking Business" on Saturday, January 31, 2009 from noon - 1:00 p.m. at the Sandy Springs Public Library.
