    @bbsoon2be:  You aren’t some complete stranger and you are easily identifiable, so I would have no problem eating your baked goods.

    If you such at baking though, why bother?

    I’m sure they would love getting cookies from you. You’re not a stranger. I wouldn’t suggest bringing them during daycare though, as all the kids will see and want them!

    Yeah, maybe not from someone on the street, but I’d definitely eat baked goods from someone whose kid I watch! But I agree with the PP – if you really do suck at baking, or don’t enjoy it, just save yourself the trouble and buy some. 🙂 I think it’s a really sweet idea, and I’m sure they’ll appreciate it!

    (Actually, I don’t know who I’m kidding. I’d probably eat cookies from a stranger on the street. I love cookies.)

    If a stranger came up to me in the street saying “Eat this cupcake. It has…sprinkles,” I would probably run screaming. But you’re hardly a stranger – these people are very familiar with your daughter and, while they may not know you as well, I’m sure they would appreciate the gesture.

    Technically most of us would eat goods baked by strangers everyday!

    I am always excited for baked goods.  I spend 5 years working at a coffee shop and our regulars would often bring in cakes and cookies, we never gave it a second thought and we were always happy that our customers thought enough of to bring in baked goods.

    Um. I kinda do, actually. On a semi-regular basis. One of my customers bakes as a stress reliever, and he brings us muffins and breads and stuff every week. I actually just got down devouring a pack of his mini blueberry muffins. :X

    I am  bit of a snob because I bake and decorate cakes in my spare time. So with me I dont eat any cake, cookies, or sweets from anyone. If I did in the past I would judge them based on how mine would taste I didnt do it on purpose it just happened. So now I just say thank you and give it to someone else.
