I thought this article brought up some issues that maybe some people hadn't thought about:
From the sound of this article, I'm not sure that cakes would be where they are enforcing this ordinance, but I thought it was at least interesting to think about. I know that before I started reading the forums, I always accepted what I'd heard that "all alcohol burns off in cooking". I now know that isn't the case at all.
At any rate, it got me thinking about areas of law you might have run into that you never expected would apply to you?
So much for using vodka to paint on birthday cakes
I'm sorry, but I think that law is ridiculous. You'd have to have a lot of alcohol in something to make it affect someone, and to use it solely as flavoring, the amounts are minimal at best. Some laws are just silly.
Interesting...thanks for passing it on....
Wait, you cannot use vanilla extract? Which is FDA required to be 35% alcohol? Crazy!
