don't leave cake uncovered - Page 5

post #61 of 103
I would probably do the same as the OP, depending on the amount of cat chewing (the pictures aren't showing up for me) and how well I knew the cat. I am not saying that I would sell the cake if I were a professional baker. I am not saying that I would let pets and children frolic in the buttercream if I were a licensed home baker. But personally, it wouldn't really bother me to eat the part of the cake that was untouched. I would probably decline the punch if the cat had been drinking out of the bowl.

I actually had the total opposite happen to me one time. My daughter and I were going to church one morning and she forgot to let the cat out before we left. I had a small cake done and in a box ready for a customer/friend for the afternoon. I put the cake in the dining room, because my bakery was a total mess and I was planning on cleaning it that afternoon. Cat got into the box and ate the entire top off the cake. My friend wanted me to just cut the top off and level it, and then re-ice it, when I called her that afternoon to tell her what had happened! lol I about died! I said no way! Garbage can it goes! I made her another one for the next day. So......sometimes, it can be not the baker, but the cake eater! lol Geez.....lighten up people! THere are worst things in this world! Think about it!

If people only knew what went on in restuarants (including the five star fancy ones) and not everyone has the highest standard of hygiene they would not eat out again.

You guys need to lighten up. This was for a family cake, people had the right to refuse it. The kids get more germs from playing around on the floor.

Our kids used to try to eat cat biscuits from the cat bowl when they thought no one was looking.

I could not see the pictures of the cakes. I am sorry this happened to you.

I think if that had been me this happened to, (even though I don't own any pets and would never have eaten the cake if you had offered it to me), I would have told the story and displayed the cake you worked on, but I would have purchased a cake to serve at the party. Just my opinion.

I did not carefully read every post--but this thread is a very sad thing. This was a new poster with a big heart who has been shunned in some ways.

That's cold and ugly and I'm ashamed of us.

This was a brand new poster who recently adopted three children and was inspired to create a beautiful cake to celebrate the first birthday as a family. What a beautiful amount of creative juice. What a lovely person.

What is the matter with us.

First - welcome to CC

Second - Funny

Third - I wouldn't have eaten the cake. I'm a sanitary freak. Gag.

Fourth - Given that the pets were OK and I can't see the pictures, are you sure it wasn't just your husband, dressed as a cat, who got into the cake? Check the security cameras. You'll see.

I just joined here a couple of months ago. I thought it was the greatest place. I have been saddened recently to see how hateful everyone (not everyone, just general terms) has been to each other. I was spending lots of time on CC, but now I find myself logging on less and less. The OP just thought she was telling an amusing story and look what happened. I'm quite sure she won't be back. Sad.

Steph, I could not agree more--and by the looks of your avatar--
surely that pitiful creature was one that didn't get any cake. icon_lol.gif

Anytime there is a pet vs food story, we get all kinds of views and opinions. Hubby and I were talking about this story and in our view, it was an amusing story if the cake hadn't been served and emergency cakes from walmart were served instead. In our view, eating after an animal is just gross and disgusting. In our view, a pet, a kid, an elderly aunt who tastes the cake with their finger (or whatever) is an amusing story ..... if the remaining food is then handled with proper sanitary sense.

I was raised in a home where the #1 sin was mistreating an animal, so I know how people can feel about their pets. (When our puppy escaped from the house and got hit by a car, I cried for 3 days!) What I find is that pet owners tend to view their pets differently than "just an animal", and I truly understand how that evolves.

I can understand how pet owners can think, in their view, that eating the part of the cake NOT touched by the pet would be ok, and how the story would be funny ..... mostly to other pet owners who may have experienced the same thing.

I own a dog and 2 birds, and I find the story humorous .... until the cake was offered to guests. In my view, that was gross.

And multiple views just has to be expected when posting on a forum this size. And multple contrary views have to be expected when many of us deal with health dept rules, food safety issues, and proper sanitary practices.

Yes, I find it a humorous story. Yes, I find it wrong to serve the cake anyway. But there's a reason health dept rules forbid animals in a kitchen.

As I think someone pointed out earlier, with so many states trying to get home bakeries licensed, these kinds of stories lend fuel to the fire as to why it's such a hard battle. It doesn't matter if this story was for a sold cake or not ... it's the home baker's practices that are remembered.

Just some points to ponder, in my view.

Wow, welcome to CC. icon_biggrin.gif

Please don't stress about this thread. I know it's disheartening, but this is a public forum and there are no guarantees as to what kind of reply you will get.

First off, I am seriously surprised. I had no idea that cats loved to eat sweet stuff. I have never owned a cat, so I had no clue. I thought they were picky eaters, I thought it was just dogs that would wolf down anything. LOL.

I think you're a devoted mom who wanted to give her child a special cake and fun memories, well you certainly got that! I don't think you'll ever forget that birthday. LOL. I think it would be a fun one to scrapbook and journal about. These are YOUR precious family memories, nobody can take that from you. thumbs_up.gif
