    As a child when I was growing up my mother always let my siblings and I lick the cake batter from the beaters and eat the raw cookie dough as she was baking. My husband always has somewhat of a COW when I let our kids do this. I figure it hasn't killed me or my siblings or their children so what's the harm. I tell him they make protein drinks out of raw eggs and it's not like the batter or dough has sat out for hours. Plus our eggs are always fresh. So is this bad, am I putting my children at risk or is my husband over re-acting? His mother use to do the same....I asked her in front of him!!

    Omigosh, yes! I think I like the raw pound cake batter better than the actual cake itself, LOL. I'm still kicking.

    We always had another use for raw eggs on Halloween. I do like cake mix.

    If it is bad for you than I am in trouble. I ate it as a child, my kids did and we still all do. I love it. Especially anything that is chocolate. YUMMY!

    I see nothing wrong with eating raw cake batter or cookie dough. Tons of us do it and we haven't died of it yet!
