I'm a nurse, and I work for a private family doctor. I just started decorating cakes less than a year ago, and I've had 2 "paying gigs" so far. Me and my bf's dream is to open up a coffee & pastry shop, but that is years and years away, so I'm just having a great time doing cakes for people from time to time.

Wow 50% just do it for friends and family. Thats a lot of work to not make any $$ icon_lol.gif

I am a teacher...elementary reading to be exact. I have always loved to decorate cakes. Growing up I would make the cakes for my family, I think I even made a few of my BDay cakes as well. Now that my life is starting to settle down I've had more time to explore my hobbies. The plan now is to make cakes for a small fee for friends and family. Hopefully I can build up my experience and portfolio and move this into a business. This seems perfect for when I retire (in about 30 more years icon_rolleyes.gif )

I'm an executive assistant. I'd love to be able to do cakes and get paid, but it is impossible to do it legally here and Murphy's Law, I'd get turned in!

I have been making cakes for about a year now. I am 23. I was in school for archetecture, but i found that using that talent on cakes is amazing, so i am going for business now. I plan to open my own bakery in a couple of years.

I'm a SAHM to twin toddler girls. I really didn't get into it that much until after they were born (or should I say when I was pregnant with them!). I guess it was all about nesting and becoming domestic icon_wink.gif...

Hi...
I´m an accountant. I live in Monterrey Mexico...I still don´t bake cakes..(becasue I don´t know) I just made cookies decorated.
I´d like to learn to make cakes...because I want to have my own busines..when I´ll be pregnancy..I hope it happens soon icon_biggrin.gif and because I discovered it very funny and creative and that is something I realli enjoy it...
Sometimes I think I must be a chef instead an account...I´ll see what can I do.

Saludos

i'm 31 years old, and i work as a program assistant at the largest non-governmental cancer research funding agency in canada. i have a bachelors degree in Linguistics, and part-way through my degree i took off a year and went to college for baking. i worked in bakeries until i finished university, when i had to quit because of physical problems and i fell accidentaly into admin work (like most of us do). i am the delighted aunt of 2 nieces and 2 nephews ranging in ages 5 weeks to almost 13 years, and i am owned by a 9-year-old 15-pound orange somali cat (who is the most beautiful creature on the planet).

i do cakes and truffles and other pastries these days sporadically, and have cupboards full of pans and tools that have been laying fallow for years. i really enjoy sharing my baking and decorating experience with the folks on this site; helping people troubleshoot challenges is one of my favourite things.

I'm a SAHM. My little one just turned 2, and my other is 4.5. I started experimenting with cakes for my DD's first birthday. It was a lot of fun, so I started doing them for everyone's birthday.

I am a department of defense government worker who works with the F-15 aircraft - helping to keep freedom free. I started decorating cakes two months ago, and I am doing cakes for family, friends, co-workers. As soon as I think they have had enough free samples, I will start charging...Ching! Ching! I really enjoy it though....
