hmmm.....agree that Betty, DH and PillsBoy do great job measuring.
I fully understand need to warn for allergies having a weird food allergy (no cashews, can't touch skin of mangoes -- both from POSION IVY family and oh boy am I allergic!!!)
personally, I will never tell a customer that I am sure/guarantee it to be allergen free ..just will not take on that responsibility/liability. Sorry, they'll have to find another source if that is the case. As one with food allergy, it is MY responsibility to take FIRST action to protect myself. And if a food is suspect, avoid it.
so on a LIGHTER NOTE!!!!
do we now have to include "CSDS" with our cakes
Cake Safety Data Sheets???
in addition to all the warnings about NUTs and MILK and LACTOSE and SUGAR....(go down the list)
should we include ...
"Be warned...this cake could/may/can do any and all of the following to you:
> break out in a cold sweat for fear you won't get a piece -- a big piece
> get agitated because you didn't get extra icing
> get agitated because kids had extra icing and are now hyper
> cause "hail-damage" aka cellulite
> after a moment on the lips stay for ever on your hips
> cause marital strife because s/he smashed it into/onto....
> cause parent/child strife because child smashed it into/onto...; refused to share w/....
> cause fainting/lightheadedness due to cost of homemade vs. bakery
(and we can add from there!
