I take medication and my numbers aren't too bad (A1C 6.4) but it is tempting. I am going to just immediately throw scraps away. Someone made a good point....would they eat scraps in a commercial kitchen? Not usually or they shouldn't so why should I in my home when it is for a customer. So that gave me a whole new outlook. Oh and I want to mention I do not dip my fingers in icing or sit around and eat tons of cake. There is just times I crave sweets and of course it may...
Hi! I have been in business for close to 4 years. I am a licensed home baker and I have been very successful :-) My problem is I am a type 2 diabetic (found out 2 years ago) and I am asking what other diabetic bakers do to keep their hands away from cake scraps??

I love the response and I will be sure to keep this in case I ever need it. I decided that it is a waste of my time to reply as it...
Thank you for the feedback! I really appreciate it
Hi everyone! I had a possible bride inquire about my cakes and was interested in a tasting Feb. 4th. She seemed a little "bridezilla" in prior emails but when I told her that I work out of my home and did not have a storefront this is the email I got after I explain I can keep cost a little lower since I do not have overhead to pay and that there are many awesome home bakers everywhere. Oh and another email I received prior to this she stated how accomodating and...
