Can I sell cakes made with my eggs??
#1
Hi All,



Does anyone know if I can sell cakes made with eggs from my girls? I was planning to have a cake stall at a local school fete.



Thanks, Peachy

Personally I can think of no reason why not but there have been so many weird and wonderful rulings in the UK I would now hate to say yes to something that shouldn't really need to be asked - I won't say who I blame it all on <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />

I would say yes you can <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' /> can't see any ruling that say's you can't otherwise all cake sellers would have to declare their source of ingredients on their box.

Yes and if you put photos of your girls who laid the eggs on the table where you are selling they go like, well, hot cakes!



Cooking eggs kills any bugs in them so there is no problem as long as it's on a small scale, if you were planning to go Mr Kipling then I am sure there will be some rules to follow!

Doesn't baking with fresh hens eggs make such a difference to the mixture. It's much lighter and fluffier than if you buy free range eggs from a supermarket, they're just not as good as the fresh. Anybody would be lucky to get fresh baked cakes with fresh eggs!! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />

Photos of your girls would boost your sales no end! We did a tea for Contact the Elderly a couple of months ago and used our eggs for everything - our guests were delighted, especially as they also got to meet the hens. One lady spent ages lying on the lawn trying to persuade them to feed from her hand!

Hi

I personally see no reason why you cannot sell anything made from your own eggs, but your post made me wonder and having read a few of the ingredient labels in the shops they say they use " pasteurised eggs" what is a pasteurised egg surely if you heat it like milk it would cook or am I just having a moment of stupidity .

Environmental health are happy for me to use our home produced eggs for the meals I cook at work for our school age students, however technically your house should be registered as a food premises with environmental health if you are producing food to sell - even the women making jam for the WI need to be registered these days!!!! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='blink' />

I was just going to say what bantam girl has said, it's far more likely to be a problem with your kitchen premises than the eggs you use. A lady who used to supply the local shop with home made cakes was stopped because of this near us.

Peachy as it is a one off sort of a thing and is for a local fete, you will have no problem using your own eggs. It's only if you want to sell on a commercial basis or quite often that you need all the bells and whistles! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
