The raw egg bothered me too and that's why I won't try Martha's. Just that the picture of cake frosted in Martha's looked just so smooth, so pretty. Two cakes in the forum pictures have Martha's BC, they look so nice. But I'm with you, hate to feed a bunch of people and find they got sick. I keep my cakes as pure as possible, even don't use artificial flavorings. Getting sensitive in my old age, and figure others might be sensitive too. Would also like to know if anyone else uses raw egg.
