I had just finished baking my cake for my Wilton class and I had it on the counter to cool when I went into the other room to grab some supplies. I came back into the kitchen to find my cat completely chomping down on one of the cakes! Before I could get to him (to strangle him icon_biggrin.gif ) he had eaten one side of the cake and licked the top of it!

Luckily I was able to trim the top off and put enough icing on the side to make it look round again.

Lesson learned, put the cat with the sweet tooth outside before I put a cake on the counter to cool

I had leftover cupcakes sitting on the kitchen table for my son and his friends to have when they got home from school, I went to answer the phone and my three year old got two cupcakes one for her and one for the cat, I come back in the room she is covered in butter cream and the cat is licking butter cream off of the second cupcake. They both look at me like what we can't have a snack too. What I can't get over is how she opened the container , the lids that we have on them from the shop are really hard to pop off.

My 5 year old always comes and tells on himself when he gets into my cakes. He tells me that I shouldn't make the cake that good so it is all your fault. I would not eat it if it tasted bad.

When ever I bake my 3 year old daughter and our kitten both have to lick the beater of the mixer and lick the mixing bowl icon_rolleyes.gif

I didn't realize cats liked cake or icing!

Cats are so cute.

bakedbycody- the cat is always put outside before I start baking, I thought he was outside already but he wasnt. As for him being on the counter, that is the first time (and last) he has ever gone after a cake let alone been on the counter.

We used to have a cat that stole lunches. He would take the bag and hide it until all of us had left the house. When all was quiet he'd tear the bag open and eat the chocolate cupcakes, only the cupcakes. My mother thought she was losing her mind. She knew she made a lunch for each of us and all of a sudden she was one short. She found the cat's stash of lunches under the couch.

I don't "let" him eat the batter, but he will get to the beater in the sink before i rinse and put in the dishwasher. It's not like I give him a pan full.l

eating raw cake batter or cookie dough is only as dangerous as eating homemade mayonnase or icecream, sorbet and mousse and ceaser salad dressings.
As long as it is not consumed in large quantities and all of the time the risks are small.

As for cats in the kitchen mine only lives in the garden icon_smile.gif

my mum always let us like the whisk afterwards, never did us any harm! my cat lives in the house, hes 18 though, cant jump any more lol, he was never allowed on benches to begin with but, accidents do happen, one year we had a christmas stocking, the plastic kind filled with bags of treats, on a high shelf, we came down one morning and he'd ate his way through all the plastic bags to get to the treats lol

My family has eaten cake batter and raw cookie dough since long before I was born. We don't eat a lot only lick the beaters or a tbsp or two of dough, but none of us has ever gotten sick from it. It would never be allowed if either had sit on the counter for awhile. Eating the dough or licking the beaters are some of my fondest memories of learning to bake with my grandmother and I live in the south, so if anyone was to get salmonella it would have been us. icon_biggrin.gif

When I bake, I put up a tri-fold screen so my cats can't get in the kitchen. Then I clean all the surfaces and cover the table in plastic before rolling fondant. It's the only way that I can be sure that everything is clean and there is nothing left from the cats.

I really hope that nobody was going to eat the cat-licked cake, and that it was only for show for your class icon_eek.gif Please tell me nobody ate it.

I don't allow my kids to, but I've been doing it since I was a kid.

Ditto, to whoever said cat's in the kitchen was "disgusting." I have had cats, dogs, bird and frogs in the past, but now I am allergic to everything. I find that I don't have much patience left for animals. I admire them from a distance.

Oh that's just gross! Please tell me you threw the cake away! I mean cats are pretty finicky and clean animals, shiny hinies and all... BUT THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE THEY LICK THEIR BUTTS! And Ew nasty cat little box paws in the kitchen and on the counter.
I can see the funny in it, but nobody ate it right? icon_eek.gif

Licking the beaters were the best part! I miss those days.... All the restrictions set these days are so irritating to me!

Reminds me of the time I put a cake out on the patio to cool. Had one of those netting things for picnics over it. Went to take a shower and came back and three squirrels were having their own little party on my picnic table.

Gotta love those animals. I laugh about it now, but at the time I was ready to do some squirrel hunting. LOL

I have gotten a MUCH worse case of food poisoning from food at a health inspected restaurant then raw cookie dough/cake batter from my own kitchen, with the cat in it.
