Opinion on cakers who smoke - Page 2

post #16 of 20
Unless he's blowing smoke onto the cake, it will be fine. There are lots of chefs and bakers out there who smoke, and you would never be able to tell based on their product. Cake will not absorb the smell in someone's hair or clothes as long as proper hygiene techniques are used. Have you ever had cake that tasted like cologne/perfume? (Maybe someone has, I suppose it's not impossible! icon_biggrin.gif)
Anyway, that being said, it's up to you. If it really grosses you out and makes you uncomfortable, then go elsewhere.

I guess it all comes down to your personal preference. If I had a business with employees I know I would never (knowingly) hire a smoker. I used to work in the restaurant industry, and smokers are ALWAYS "popping out" for a "quick smoke". Meanwhile, the non smokers are working hard the whole time. Plus, it is a filthy habit!

Smoke breaks can be easily controlled through company policies. Break time is break time and they will wait.

I believe it is a personal preference for the owner. Personally, I do not want to be around the smell.

My husband owns a medical office. Every employee smoked. Patients could see the employees outside and they came in smelling like smoke. I started a no smoking policy. The they started doing it in their cars... worse. And one genius smoked when she took a step off of the property to cross the street to get the mail.

Finally, we had to ban all smoke smell too. As the owners, we had the right. My bakery will have the same policy, but again, this is personal, not about smoke smell in the cake.
