N.D. Lawmakers Hurry To Amend Old Law Banning Booze In Baked Goods

February 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
The popularity of a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, bakery’s alcohol-soaked cupcakes has sparked a movement to change the state’s hundred-year-old law banning booze in confectionery treats. Online bakery Intoxibakes had to shut down operations to comply with the law before several city councilors began lobbying state lawmakers to make a change. They came up with a proposal to limit alcohol content in food to 0.5 percent. However, because legislative deadlines for introducing bills have passed, the proposal will need to be tacked on to another unrelated measure, and may not be acted on in this session. The legislation is similar to laws in at least a dozen other states, including Iowa and Minnesota. [Image Credit: © Intoxibakes]
