No need for all this...... we are all cake lovers, and, I love this place. Too often we entertain issues that really aren't CRUCIAL
This is my take on this whole conversation. We all break the law at some point. We all have.
Be it a:
drink and drive, etc. or a simple thing like running a red light or overtaking in a no pass zone. Or even driving over the speed limit. Because we were not caught doesn't make it ok. So, to say that if anyone of us have never done anything wrong - we can seat and judge each other.
With this economical crisis- I think 89% of us can't just open a business, And even if we wanted to banks don't want to loan out money. I am a lic. home baker/ caterer. But reality is this.
I would just encourage just do what you have to, be VERY careful about it. At least you know what? You are not out robbing people for $. Life must go on, and the bills have to be paid. I will never knock someone that is trying.
Where I am from (originally) we believe in helping others. In the USA every man is to himself. I will not turn in anyone trying to make a life for themselves.
I think that if a CC member really did turn in someone in TN for baking from home, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. That was a very low thing to do to a fellow human. What is the relevance?
You are a business they are not, is this what this place is becoming now? There is enough for everyone out there.
Please, let's just all get along. I do not want to see us argue about home vs business bakers when there are people starving, homeless, ill right here who don't even have anyone or anything.
Everyone, enjoy baking cake, and, let's all get along.
