Sometimes I bring cakes to work, e.g. leftovers from birthday party to one of the family members.
Most coworkers are happy about it and eat them without a problem, however one employee doesn't want to eat the cake, however finds himself eating it anyway due to lack of self control.
Most of the times he's OK with it but recently he started to ask (nicely, so far) if I can avoid bringing cakes in the future, even though all others enjoy it.
- I bring cakes, in average, maybe once a month or two.
- I am in good terms with the coworker for many years.
- I do not socialize with the coworker outside work hours.
- He is in a different position/team, i.e. not "above" me in role.
How should I handle this? Is there a way to keep everyone happy?
This isn't dupe of Is there an etiquette to bringing cake/cookies/etc. to the office? because it's not about company policy (boss is totally fine with cakes, and being very small, everyone see I brought it right away) and I also don't think it's dupe of How to make a diabetic coworker feel included when I bring in cake for coworkers?, because the coworker is not diabetic and his resistance to cakes isn't due to health issues.
