I hope that in addition to good handwashing, you wore a mask!

"Airborne transmission occurs when bacteria or viruses travel on dust particles or on small respiratory droplets that may become aerosolized when people sneeze, cough, laugh, or exhale. They hang in the air much like invisible smoke. They can travel on air currents over considerable distances. These droplets are loaded with infectious particles.

With airborne transmission, direct contact with someone who is infected is not necessary to become ill." Source

This can be found at any liquer store.

this is toba garrets recipe - it is also in her first cake decorating book. Actually, the recipe is the main reason I bought thebook. since it is so good, I figured the other stuff would be as well.

Yep...it's Toba Garrett's recipe, which she gave permission to post on Bonappetit. That's why I only posted the link here. I might have to pick up the book considering how good the buttercream is! icon_biggrin.gif

As to wearing a mask, I thought it would be much more fun to sneeze and cough on the cakes...make life more adventurous! tapedshut.gif

I'm KIDDING!!!!!! I practically wrapped myself in Saran!

Just to add.......I decided to make a 1/2 sheet cake for the staff at my school, to get their opinion of this buttercream. I took it in this morning. They went INSANE! I have 3 more orders!
Did I mention how delicious this buttercream is? TRY IT! icon_biggrin.gif

LOL! Well, Saran Wrap doesn't let you breathe all that well, so if you absolutely MUST fulfill a cake order while feverish and sick as a dog, good handwashing practices, absolutely no touching of the face, and a surgical mask worn during the duration of all contact with food is necessary to ensure the health of those eating your cake. You never know, the cake could be served to an elderly person or an immuno-compromised individual whose immune system could become overwhelmed, even fatally.

Sorry to get on my soapbox, but infectious disease is a serious concern for those of us who handle food, and most people don't think much about passing on illnesses to people. It always makes me cringe reading about food handlers who work while ill. tapedshut.gif

Nope...you make very good points. I work in an elementary school and have to get re-certified every year on handling "bodily fluids and infectious material" (one of those lovely perks of the job!), so I have a pretty good understanding of germs! Of course, working with all those germy kids is probably why I got sick in the first place! icon_wink.gif

Normally I would never, ever work on any food while ill, but there just wasn't a choice. The cake was ordered and expected. I was very careful and felt very comfortable handing the cake over.

I've had Toba's "The Well Decorated Cake" for about a year and every recipe I've tried is awesome. The chocolate buttercream recipe you mention is really really good. I use it all the time. I didn't want to splurge on the Godiva liquer so I purchased Creme de Cocoa; it's still a chocolate liquer.

You guys should really consider buying that book! Her moist yellow cake recipe is awesome too. It's my staple recipe for yellow cakes./ Also, the chocolate cake cheesecake
(cheesecake sandwiched between 2 choc fudge cakes w/ choc b'cream and cream cheese) is out of this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
