I just fear the fines etc. My home is clean and I take pride in what I do or try and do and would hate always being afraid. My aunt recently passed away of cancer and we had a fundraiser to help come up with the money she needed to be layed at rest and the hd gave the okay that as long as I myself was not getting $ for the baked goods then they could sell them or ask for donations. I was happy with that. I have a relative who made and sold wedding cakes for years (still does actually) and the head of our county HD was one of her biggest orders and she wasn't even legal, never has been either. I guess that was part of being in a small town and they thought there was better things to do. Maybe someday when everything is better we can all make it work out. Good luck in what ever any does or decides. I know baking is a passion and I would hate for anyone to get into trouble for it, that is if they are not putting someone elses health at risk.



This is what cracks me up about the whole messed up system! If it is "dangerous" to sell cakes that haven't been baked in a licensed kitchen, then why the heck is it safe if a charity makes money off of a cake you baked, but not if the home baker makes money off of it!? So stupid! I can take cakes and cookies to church and the cafe there can sell the goods, but I can't sell them on my own because all of a sudden it is deemed dangerous. When you think of it in those terms, it really seems like the government is just trying to stop small businesses from succeeding.

I can just envision Chutzpah eagerly reading through the threads looking for the word 'Christian" just so she can insert her snarky comments.

We get it. You are faithless. You do not believe in God. You are your own God. You are so anti-faith that you feel the need to make it part of your public identity by posting 'nowherenearachurch' as your location. That's fine. Knock yourself out being as anti-faith as you like....but it would be appreciated by all if you would let this forum be about cake and go fight your anti-religious battles on more appropriate websites. Maybe the Cake Central atheists can make their own Facebook group so you can go talk smack about all of us delusional people who pray to imaginary deities. Buh-bye!

And frankly, those of us who are believers need to stop taking the bait when the atheists make their comments. Ignore the snarky, often antagonistic comments and pray for them. That is the most powerful and effective thing we can do for them.

I usually stay out of these threads but I wanted to see if anyone had been busted for selling from home. LOL, jeez. I guess this is the new twist on the same old arguments. icon_rolleyes.gif

I also hate inconsistencies like this! Story on the news last night about (Indiana) restaurants are going to have to add nutritional info in their stores/menus *IF* they have more than 10 stores (chains). So it's important for the consumer to know exactly what's in the food .... unless it's a mom and pop shop and then it's buyer beware.

If it's a "health crisis issue" (and what issue that goes thru any legislature ISN'T a "crisis" these days!) for the people who eat in the chain restaurants, then it's a health crisis issue in less-than-10-stores restaurants.

Just. Be. Consistent.

1700 yrs ??... light weights. icon_smile.gif

Hinduism can be traced back 5,000 yrs. If you look at the Yamas and Niyamas (code of conduct), you can see where the 10 Commandments stem from. Not looking for an arguement, but,
"All paths lead to the same place..."

Before anyone mentions the "many gods" theory... we do not beleive in many gods. There is one God, however several avatars (aspects) of that God. icon_wink.gif

I'm sorry... when did this thread become about religion and not about cake.....

I think you are all treading on an area that will quickly blow up... and lead to yet another sad locked thread. Somehow, I don't think that this is what the OP had in mind as a discussion.....
Cakes are my escape!

I totally agree!! I also think it's bogus that some states vary so much by county. Talk about confusing the heck out of everyone!!

I could not have said it better myself thumbs_up.gif

I'm really quite disappointed in some of the "hateful" and "sarcastic" responses in recent posts. This is a great place to come and kick back and have a few laughs, let's not fill it with anger towards one another. We all know there's enough of that in this big world already, without adding to it. Love Thy Neighbor, ya know?

Personally, I hate sarcasm and sardonic comments, unless they are playfully self-referential.

I realize that I let myself get sucked in with some posts that upset me, I am not angry. I really was trying to respond politely and just bring attention to the fact that we should all, both sides, have a right to our own beliefs as long as we "Love thy Neighbor". This really should be just about cake, not religion. I will now follow Cakepro's wise advice and not take the bait anymore. Happy caking to all!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

This is my most favoritest thread yet! In regard to "snarky" comments, remember that all Christians aren't fundamentalists. I'm Episcopalian, and a pretty liberal one, so I've been told by some of my neighbors that I'm going to hell because I don't subscribe to their version of Christianity. Atheists aren't the only snarky, rude ones, as some of the previous posts demonstrate. Also true that all roads lead to the same place, but nobody knows what that is, so who knows who's right?? Woooooooo!!!! (That was suppsoed to be eerie) Rowan Atkinson did a routine once where he was playing the devil welcoming people to hell, and at one point he said something like "Murderers, sadists, Christians to the left...What? Oh yes, I'm sorry, the Jews were right."

Okay, but seriously, if you're illegally selling anything you take the risk of getting caught, regardless of what it is. Trying to judge why someone got turned in is silly, they get turned in, they get turned in, deal with it. Go get a license and operate legally, then there will be no problems. I understand the reference to being the "christian" thing to do, but I think that you can make the argument that the Christian thing could go either way. Just do what's legal, and if you don't like the law, work to get it changed.

I have no animosity towards anyone who makes the decision to be of faith. I was raised Catholic so I know the drill when it comes to religion. I have studied the Christian faith in many aspects as was required of me in school. I have studied eastern religions as well. I don't believe, and that's my thing. I have no problem with others who do. I find that often it's those who do have faith that have a problem with me. I make no judgements about those who believe, yet they make judgements about me. But whatever... I am not going to change their perceptions so I don't waste time with it. I represent a point of view they don't want to ponder and that's fine by me. I have friends who have faith and they have no problem with me not having faith. I think that's great right there.

I do think it funny though when people think that religion is the answer to the problems of the world. Morality isn't based in religion... religion is based in morality. Morality can exist without religion. I am an example of that. I live a very moral life and teach my children to do the same and I have no fear of retribution to blame for my choice to be a good person. I am not saying that people of faith are only good in fear of hell (or the equivalent), just that you don't have to fear going to hell to be a good person. I don't like being looked upon as one who incites. This isn't an us against them thing here... simply differing opinions.

There was some serious mud slinging in that thread, yet the idea of "locking" that thread never crossed anyone's mind? I'm all for freedom of speech, I just don't understand what sets the two threads apart in terms of offensive info. (without religion being used as an excuse) Can someone explain the difference to me... in a nice way. icon_smile.gificon_confused.gif



Well, if you're talking about the Officially Embarrassed thread that started in Cake Disasters but got moved to The Lounge, it had well over 2000 posts. I was there from page 1 and there was not any nastiness or mud slinging at all, so maybe that's not the one you're referring to. There was a large group there that actually had a lot of fun the last few days, but unfortunately it was just locked because it had gotten off the original topic. I'm proud to have been a part of that thread because I met a lot of really nice people that will now have a special place in my heart. We had good clean fun and a LOT of laughs. Believe me, it was nothing like this. THIS is sad!

Oh, to answer your original question about why the 2 threads are different.......I'm afraid Religion is just way too personal a subject, same as politics. Any discussion about either one always ends up getting heated, and feelings get hurt. It's just the nature of the beast, I guess.

Excellent point. I can't explain a difference, I can just say that for my taste, this one has gotten a bit mean spirited so whether or not locking is an issue, I just don't want to "take the bait" and feed into it anymore - really, my time would be better spent with my family. I shouldn't have felt the need to stand up for someone's right that they already know they have icon_biggrin.gif. If someone else has something to add, that doesn't bother me either way. Now I REALLY AM going to hang with my kiddos. Have a good night.
