So I have been doing cakes for about 15 years, and have never done them for profit, only as gifts to friends and family or donations for church and school functions. I did my own wedding cake in a local venue back in 2006, and now am doing my very first wedding cake for some one else (a dear friend) in a larger town.
The reception hall has given me a document stating the I will claim liability if anyone gets ill from my cake , which I completely understand. My problem is my dh is throwing a fit- he hates the cake projects I do, because I get a little stressed, and he always asks me "what if someone gets sick, we could lose our house!" ............
I know it's a liability, but we could get sued either way, legal or not. I have a full time job and would not enjoy decorating if I had to do it for a living. I am mainly just venting, because he told me after this one, no more cakes .......
anyone have horror stories on people getting sick from cake and getting sued over it?
The can of worms you just opened
I've had a few incidents where I stated I am not licensed and to this day I'm still searching for pieces of my head they chewed off!!
I wish I can give you some support, words of acknowledgement and some compliments. Truth of the matter is that I am choosing my words much more carefully now. I completely understand how you feel; only difference is that I do want to do cakes and pastries for a living.
However, as I've said plenty of times- to each their own.
Have a good one!!
