Do you all actually allow little kids in the kitchen when you're caking?
The cake is for my sister's baby shower on Saturday, she's not a paying customer, although that doesn't make a difference in the quality of cake I make. I always do my baking after my kiddos are in bed, but thought I would get a head start on the fondant flowers (obviously a bad choice).
I remember being a kid and watching a baker make cinnamon rolls at a bakery through the glass window only to see his nose drip not once but twice into the dough he was rolling. I watched him not skip a beat, wipe his nose with his hand and roll out the rolls with those hands and bake them. I often wondered who bought and ate those rolls thinking the place was clean because the health department didn't see the guy with the runny nose.
Godot, not sure if you were trying to be offensive to moms, don't like kids or home bakers or maybe all of the above, and maybe I'm a little testy because I was up late re-making flowers. But I'm choosing to give you the benefit of the doubt and believe you were not implying that home bakers are all substandard in cleanliness or quality... because even though that's what it sounded like you were implying...I'm choosing to think I'm taking it the wrong way because I'm tired and a little cranky...
