Okay... now with all the colds and flu going around, my question is ......Can you make someone sick if you have the cold or flu, and have been decorating their cake ?

I would say better safe than sorry. Besides, if you are sick with the flu, you are not even going to be physically able to make a cake!

You should not. In fact, your local health department rules probably prohibit it.

When you go out to eat, would you want the person who cooks and plates your food to serve you with the flu?

I think not.

Besides that, you could very well transmit the flu to someone whose immune system cannot overcome it...and they die. Is making the cake worth that risk?

Absolutely. I've had the flu once in my life. Not the sniffles with a cough that everyone CALLS the flu. The real flu. The kind that causes you to lose 12 pounds in 4 days. The kind that prohibits you from lifting your head off of the floor. The kind where you can't even keep popsicles, 7-Up or chicken soup down. THe kind where you begging God to let you get just 15 minutes sleep ... just 15 minutes without a cough or without throwing up. Just 15 straight minutes of closing your eyes and getting some rest.

The kind where you just want to die so you'll feel better.

If you have the flu, the REAL flu, the LAST thing you're capable of doing is making a cake.

My whole household is getting over the flu right now and I have to say, I wouldn't even want to risk making someone else feel this terrible. Thankfully, no one was throwing up, although there were plenty of times I though I was going to. I also agree with Debi about not even being able to decorate a cake when having the flu. I've been sick since Tuesday and today is the first day I'm actually able to get up and do things without feeling like I'm about ready to pass out after 5min.

Oh, yeah...My husband and I both had it at the same time about 8 years ago when our kids were little, and we didn't even have the energy to sit in a lawnchair and watch them so they could play outside. I wouldn't be able to decorate cakes in that condition, and I definitely wouldn't want to give it to anyone else. I wouldn't take a chance on doing any cakes if I had a cold or the flu.
