I came into the kitchen once to find most of a Sebastian (little mermaid ) figure gone. All that was left were a few red claws! My 3 year old niece immediately admitted eating it. When I asked her why she replied, "Because he was delicious!"


That's so funny.

Sorry to stray a little from the subject, but....

 

Does the Health Department allow home bakeries when you have little kids at home?

 

Do you all actually allow little kids in the kitchen when you're caking?

I have to say that it was drummed into my two boys from the word go that they DO NOT touch any of mummy's cake work.  Ever.

 

They never have!!

She never said she was selling the cake.

My step daughter knows to never ever touch my cake stuff(she's old enough to understand though). I've threatened that I would never ever feed her again (jokingly of course icon_lol.gif)!

I never said that she stated that the cake was being made for a paying customer.

I simply wondered how various HDs view small children/pets residing in homes where food is prepared for sale to customers.

The cake is for my sister's baby shower on Saturday, she's not a paying customer, although that doesn't make a difference in the quality of cake I make. I always do my baking after my kiddos are in bed, but thought I would get a head start on the fondant flowers (obviously a bad choice).

 

I remember being a kid and watching a baker make cinnamon rolls at a bakery through the glass window only to see his nose drip not once but twice into the dough he was rolling. I watched him not skip a beat, wipe his nose with his hand and roll out the rolls with those hands and bake them. I often wondered who bought and ate those rolls thinking the place was clean because the health department didn't see the guy with the runny nose.

 

Godot, not sure if you were trying to be offensive to moms, don't like kids or home bakers or maybe all of the above, and maybe I'm a little testy because I was up late re-making flowers. But I'm choosing to give you the benefit of the doubt and believe you were not implying that home bakers are all substandard in cleanliness or quality... because even though that's what it sounded like you were implying...I'm choosing to think I'm taking it the wrong way because I'm tired and a little cranky...

You're kidding about this right?

We are talking about people (yes, little kids are people).  Not pets.  Why on earth wouldn't you be allowed to have a home bakery AND children at the same time?

And yes my kids were allowed in the kitchen when they were little because I taught them from the beginning they were not allowed to touch any caking things. 

 

But for the OP kids can be quick, that's for sure!

Some day (a really long time from now) this will be funny.  Some day.

I so knew someone would pipe in about cleanliness, sanitation, etc. I use a baby gate to separate the whole bakery from my 2 year old. When he was younger, he took 2 naps & I could do everything while he slept. Now, I just have to keep him where I can see him. If he's lucky & fast enough to get his hands on something, we throw it out and start over. Although usually, he's just swooping up frosting from the floor. Disgusting for him to eat off the floor, but it happens.

I kind of few children in the bakery the same way I do am intern or new employee. You have to teach them, train ten, & keep a watchful eye.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

It's not applicable in this case, but most states with cottage food laws do not allow infants or small children to be in the kitchen while food for sale is being prepared. Of course they are still allowed to be in the house.

Same story with commercial kitchens...if the health dept (or your liability insurance provider) found out that small children were running around your commercial kitchen that might be an issue.

It's funny how some of us think that just because you buy food from a legal, licensed place it is germ free and everything is totally hygienic. I was in a supermarket and saw the guy in the bakery section scoop cake batter into sheet pans with his bare hands, hairy arms almost up to his elbow in a pail , it really grossed me out. I don't understand why he couldn't use a cup or ladle.
