    @wisher558:  If you are just doing it to be nice, I think it is ok.  But if it is in lieu of a tip or other payment then no.

    I am personally not really into eating stuff from client’s homes as I don’t know what their hygiene is like.  But I am a bit of a nut that way.

    @andielovesj:  I agree.

    I don’t like to eat things people make if I don’t know them. You said you’re a baker though, do you mean as a career? If so I would probably like something from your bakery. Although, like a PP said, it’s not a substitution for a tip.

    @wisher558:  I agree with Andie and AlwaysSunny. If it’s a tip and baked goods then yes. 

    I used to clean houses for living and I absolutely hated when people would give me homemade cookies as a christmas tip because 5/10 I wouldn’t dare to eat because of how dirty their house was. The other half of people were just lousy bakers so even though I knew they were clean people cookies tasted bad. I’d rather get nothing than homemade edibles (unless it’s a jar of jam – yumm )
