"Told This 6th Grader to Buy Her Own Bakery or Build A Separate Kitchen.~
~Donations will 100% support Chloe Stirling and "Hey Cupcake" to move forward with building a separate kitchen off the family's garage, as well as necessary permits.~
She has been interviewed by several local News Shows, National Fox News Show "The Kelly Files", Area Newspapers and is becoming an online internet sensation!
The 11-year-old entrepreneur's hard work resulted in some well-deserved attention from local media in Troy, Ill. In fact, Chloe Stirling's cupcake business made the front page of the Belleville News-Democrat on Sunday, making her success story the talk of the town. Unfortunately, officials with the Madison County Health Department have shut her down!
The health department informed the Stirling family that the 11-year-old girl can no longer sell cupcakes because she doesn't have the required permit, putting her in violation of the county's food ordinance and Illinois State Food Sanitation Code.
