YOU KNOW YOU'RE A CAKE DECO ADDICT WHEN:

post #1 of 290
Thread Starter 
I amuse myself by thinking of things we do that prove we are addicted to cake decorating. So I'm starting a thread where I hope you all will add to the list and we can all have a good laugh at ourselves.

Here's what I have so far:

You know you're a cake deco addict when

You dress your darling baby girl up in a frilly, fluffy dress and then wonder, with a tear in your eye, how you could make a cake that looks like that.

You're distracted by embossed designs on jars of pickles at the grocery store.

You read Margaret Braun's 'Cakewalk' on the toilet.

You repair nailholes in your walls with royal icing.

Your sweetheart sends you flowers and you pick them apart and take pictures of the pieces so you can recreate them in gumpaste.

And my personal favorite so far:

You know you're a cake deco addict when you apply your toothpaste to the brush in a nice little shell border design.

...you see the big TV camera on the Today show and think it looks like a large tiered wedding cake...

...you go to the fresh flower departement at Wal-Mart and easily pull back the petals on a real fresh rose to see how it's made, only to find out that a security guard is standing right behind you...

...as you sip coffee with French Vanilla creamer and think, "hmmmm, I wonder if cake mix would make a good tasting creamer...

...You attempt syrup stringwork on the side of stack of pancakes.


...You wonder if you need to dowel that stack of pancakes.

I have done both of these! Seriously!

And, in the shower I "pipe" the shampoo and conditioner on my hand in pretty designs when I'm washing my hair.

And at weddings, I care more about seeing the wedding cake than I do the bride and groom! icon_eek.gif

You walk the aisles of Home Depot and everything you see makes you think "I could mold chocolate, gumpaste with that!"


You feel the need to explain to the clerk at the liquor store that the Everclear is REALLY only for cake decorating.


You'd hock your first born child to pay for an Alan Dunn flower class.

Your children warn their friends when they come over to not touch the drawer full of coloring books. "Those are moms, for cake decorating!"

When your 8-year-old daughter is begging for a salad, of all things, you keep putting her off because you're busy looking up online fondant sources. (yes, this was today).

You make birthday cakes for people who don't even like cake. icon_smile.gif

You keep making cakes even though the cake mess clean-up is just about your least favorite household chore!

You think stucco looks kinda yummy and might translate well to buttercream.

Just as long as you don't start wearing the pans as footwear, I think you're OK. icon_smile.gif

When you can't look at an old building/interesting architecture or Cinderella's Castle in Disney without mentally constructing it in cake down to planning the fondant embellishments and internal supports!

Oh heck any 3 dimentional object for that matter makes me say "i bet i could make that in cake"

...You don't know if you're injured or that's just Super Red food coloring.

This is sooooo funny to read! I haven't come up with one yet-but can relate to several of these.

I must say, I have never thought of using royal icing to patch nail holes.....interesting.

...when you're at the liquor store and say you don't need a bag for that small bottle of vodka - stick it in your pocket and dash out of the store (everyone in there is rolling their eyes), so you can rush home to add that "touch of gold" to your bows....
