Texas Comptroller Rule on Sales Tax for Bakery Items

"Ready-to-Eat Food"

"Ready-to-eat food is typically taxable even when it is sold “to go.” Tax is not due, however, on bakery items (regardless of size, whether whole pies, for example, or individual portions) when sold without plates or eating utensils."
