Ah, the Joys of making cakes in your Home! - Page 3

post #31 of 48
Lint brush... that's a good idea. I don't have pets but long hair. That would be a good idea before entering the shop.

As for the thieves...............my comment is always "touch it and die".

Ew, ew, ew. Yuck. Are you allowed to have pets in the home in NC for a licensed home biz? I would make some remark to her about being surprised the Health Department would allow it, because pets shed everywhere. All the time. Just like people. Yuck. I'm so grossed out I have to go to bed. icon_smile.gif

well she is not liced...and i dont think that she is...im in the process of getting my lic right now and in NC you CAN NOT have indoor pets and get liced. so because of her not being liced she is not being inspected and so unless someone finds a hair and goes to her home no one would know...so what should i do?

WOW icon_surprised.gificon_eek.gif This thread got totally high jacked icon_eek.gif To me when I first saw this thread I was like OMG. I wouldn't have been able to fix such a problem if I lost my grandma. I was appauld by the insensativity(sp) I know this happened a month ago. But maybe it is the month of tragedy that I personally have had. It doesn't matter. This poor woman lost her grandma. Yes she had a problem with the dog. But was she reaching out out because if the dog?? Or for her grandma passing?? Sorry I had to put this in. I also have suffered loss in my family and maybe am alittle on the edgy side of this subject. Can someone please change this thread. And add a pet thread for sensitivity issues. I don't want people to jump me for this. To lovable_lauren3 My prayers are with you and yours. If you need someone to listen please PM me. I have had a loss myself. Not my grandmom but still a loss that hurt.

Kay, if you re read the original post you will see that she mentions her grandmother's death in passing...the main story is that her DOG ate the WEDDING CAKE..

The thread IS about having pets in the home....

( and not "jumping" on you..lol)

I too am sorry for your loss.

I What a great thread. love all the variety of views we have here, very nicely done.

I have a Dog and two Cats. They are not allowed in the kitchen. I give the kitchen a good scrub before baking. I wear a hair band or net. I always use a lent brush on my clothes and put on a clean apron. My hands are washed and I use a hand brush to clean under and around my nails. Kind of like surgery.

I have a daughter and a son-in-law that is OCD when it comes to germs. If nothing else they keep me on my toes.

I've worked in resturants that look very clean on the outside. If I told you stories you would never eat out again. I also worked in a meat packing house. After that a hair don't seem so bad.

All I had to do was finish icing the cakes, and add the ribbon at the reception site. I went into my basement to get the box for transporting and came back upstairs and saw that my dog had decided to eat half of the bottom layer ( of course the largest). I was due at the reception site in 30 minutes. So with a quick call to the bride, I told her I would be there at 5, one hour before the reception, to set up. I baked my butt off and my mom helped me finish up. I finished working right up until the wedding party arrived. It was slightly embarrassing having all the guest watch me, but I made it through and the cake turned out pretty good (see Ribbon Parade in my photo album). Needless to say my cakes will not be temporarily left on the dining table anymore. icon_biggrin.gif



I think this is one of the reasons why health departments are so strict about regulations and why it is so difficult to get a license for doing cakes at home. Would you order a cake for yourself from a bakery if you walked into their kitchen or shop and saw a dog walking around? I wouldn't, I don't think the two things are compatible. You either have a food business or you have an animal, but not both. No matter how good a housekeeper you are there are going to be dog/cat hairs in your home, and those hairs are going to transfer to your cakes at some time. Sorry if I sound scolding, but I feel pretty strongly about sanitation with food products.

I have a Bullmastiff....talking a counter height 80lb dog and he's a puppy and only getting bigger and yes, he lives inside.

There are NO dog hairs in anything I cook or bake! Nor do I ever have to worry about my dog sniffing or touching my cakes. I simply don't put them anywhere near where he could hope to reach. Ensures that neither the dog, my 2 kids or my hubby can touch them either! As soon as I finish anything or if I need to step away, it's put in a covered container on top of a cabinet in our home office.

I decorate on a bar height counter that neither poochy or kids can reach. I also have an simple easy-clean kitchen. My entire kitchen has caesar-stone walls and counters and a stone floor. I can wash/sanitize my entire kitchen prior to baking.

Since I am in CA, I only bake/decorate for fun and give my cakes away. Nobody has ever complained or turned down a free cake and they all are fully aware that my giant pooch is usually sleeping in his crate in my dining room while I bake.

Wow, look like home bakers with pets, husbands and "sticky children" both took a beating this time on this thread.

By the way, my kitchen is impecable, and I have both pets and a "sticky child" (and a husband).

Sorry, meant to say "sticky fingered children". And I have one "sticky fingered child"
