Oh curses to you cake batter! Why do I always succumb to it?

What an awesome cake!! I would be weak w/ the finish product, it looks positively decadent. I doubt your batter was bad enough for trouble but you're entitled, you slaved in the kitchen.

Beautiful cake! I'm an aspiring cake/cupcake artist and batter is my weakness as well. I couldn't care less about the final product... Especially cookie dough! I would think the only way you could truly over do it on the raw egg is if you ate the whole batch. Although... I could probably do that too with no regrets!

This is the e. coli/flour thing I was referring to:

I *have* gotten food poisoning from undercooked eggs and I still don't concern myself with raw dough! Slightly foolish but I live for danger! :P

I like to bake and cake decorate as well but since starting this healthy eating/reduced calorie thing, I have almost stopped completely. When I do have to do a cake I will plan for it like I would a regular treat. I would eat less calories knowing in the evening I would probably indulge in some bowl/spoon licking!

Salmonellosis is extremely rare in a healthy individual. Even I you 'got sick' it would likely be minor, hence why I'm comfortable eating raw eggs in food and shakes even when pregnant (le gasp!).

The cake turned out beautifully, I'm sorry it proved to be a stumbling block for you. I can make baking for the kids/hubby without eating it, but that took several YEARS to build up to! It is still a bit of a willpower struggle, even when the final baked product doesn't tempt me the batter always does!

I went and bought some gum today. I can't even recall the last time I bought gum! Of course, I got sugar free. Let's see if it helps in the future. Right now i'm making yeasted bread. THAT at least I can't eat the batter!

Beautiful cake!

I hadn't thought about cake batter in forever. I don't bake, I don't need it, and the hub will eat one piece and then it sits there calling to me.

But, I remember when I was a kid, every so often, my Dad would mix up a box of cake batter, drag out the ice cream and we would feast! What we didn't eat, Mom made cupcakes out of.

And all these years, I thought we were the only family that thought cake batter was a dessert! This is the first time I've ever admitted that cake batter and ice cream was sometimes supper in the summer! *rolls eyes*

I can't imagine those two things together, but either one of them separately? YUM!!!

Funny thing is, I'm not a big (American) cake fan. European cakes are a whole 'nother story, but the batter from cake? O.M.G... so dangerous for me to have around.

I don't think I have another cake until April (though I might have a friend who might get one before then). So, I should be in the clear for awhile. Now just how do I keep out of the cookie dough that I'll be making tomorrow! Oh, that's right - gum! I have GUM IN DA HOUSE!

You had to mention cookie dough! LOL. Another of my Dad's faves!

Dad, God rest his soul, we lost him in 1977 in a farm accident, also loved cookie dough, and was known to mix up chocolate chip cookie dough and drag out the ice cream!

Ironically, given the farm/cattle working lifestyle, he was never over weight, and these food/sugar festivals, were only a few times a year, some good memories, and things I hadn't thought of in a long time!

I most certainly can relate! I have to do a lot of baking for church sales, meetings, etc. and have licked the problem. (Sorry - bad phrase!) I always clean my teeth first, pour a large glass of water and then put on surgical gloves. There is no way I'll lick a surgical glove! It works like a charm.

I'm sorry you lost your dad in a terrible farming accident. It's such a dangerous profession (I'm originally from Iowa, so I know a bit about the farming world).

But your mention of his diet reminded me of an interesting NPR story I heard about a year ago. It talked about how our nutritional and caloric needs changed as our careers changed.

Farmers or people who worked the land would need enormous amounts of calories during harvest season especially - something like 4000 a day (or more). They were healthy people, but ates tons and tons of fat (butter/lard) to ingest enough calories to sustain their work. As our careers changed, our caloric needs changed.

Maybe I need to find a physically demanding job so I can eat more freely!

First, gorgeous cake. I used to do a lot of specialty cakes and now just do them for family events. I'm like you -- if there's extra batter and/or icing, it seems like it's a direct path for me to eat the "leftovers." The funny thing is that I'm able to resist eating the cake itself, but will eat 3-4 pieces worth of cake and icing while I'm making it. I think I'll try the gum trick that was mentioned when I make the bunny cake for Easter.

At least it was just 2-3 cupcakes worth and not the entire thing of batter. Which I'm ashamed to admit that I've done before.
