I live in Columbus now, but used to live in northwest Ohio - w of bowlinggreen - I still go home lots and my family loves getting cakes from me (yes i haul a cake 2.5 hrs ...i think im nuts)

As to the ICES in Ohio - are there smaller groups that meet or it is just one big event?

As to starting onther groups is anyone seriously thinking into that? ...
I would love to help set something up but im moving twice in the next 3 months (aahh!) and have college classes on top of that

yes diana your nuts, JOIN THECROWD! i was invited to a party in columbus and just could not get the idea of not taking a cake, then i choose one with ganache and fresh berries, was i nuts? ended up borrowing one of those coolers that plugs into your car and runs cool as you go , took the melting issues of my mind but there are a few bumps along that 120 mile drive. arrived safely but . aaaah did i need a cocktail when i go there!

one of the previous posts has a link to the ohio ICES and that site links to others that appear more regional.

and yes i am in the very beginnign stages of wanting to find or start a group in my area, i think gas prices and peoples time maybe justify a more local based operation, where will your moves take you? and classes too? your as bad as the 4 or 5 irons i have in the fire, PM me if youd like

Just west of Cleveland here. Didn't realize there were so many of us up here.

I tried starting a cake club a few years ago and found that no one in the group was willing to do anything. I gave up and have just stuck with ICES bi-annual meetings since. I've even taught at them, lol.

Unfortunately, Cindy, I just wouldn't have the time to organize a club right now. Too busy with the job and the kids starting school.

I'm in West Chester, just north of Cincinnati. I do the cottage foods thingie, since I have dogs. I just put my cakes on my food scale. For wedding cakes, do them individually.

I make a sheet with the labeling info and just put it in an envelope and hand it to the customer. If it's for a wedding, I just leave it with the boxes they need to return my stuff in. Put the bride's name on it.

We have a cake club here in Cincinnati, and I think I'm going to go ahead and join this month.

Jumping off topic a little bit, but have any of you cottege bakers registered a business name? If so, how did you go about doing it?

Yes I did, it costs $50. I'll find the information and post more shortly.

I'm also wait for an SBC ad rep to return my call about listing my cell phone in the yellow pages.

I'm so glad I saw this thread.....I'm in South Jersey now and have been for the last 5 yrs. but I moved here from Ohio (long story, my DH is from here, internet.....etc. LOL) Anyhow......I've finally talked him into moving back to Ohio.......we're going to live in a really small town in the northeastern corner right on Lake Erie and the Pa. border!!! I vote YES for a cake club.........I would love to try and start up a business when I move there.....I obviously need a ton more practice at the whole cake thing but would LOVE to make this my job!!!!! Heaven!!!

WOW! I've been out of town (and off CC) for the last week & look what I missed! I'm on the east side of Cleveland and grateful for the whole "cottage industry" thing in Ohio. I'm about to incorporate (thanks to DH, who's a lawyer) as "Cakeface Custom Designed Cakes LLC." I'd LOVE to get a local cake group going!! Maybe we could at least choose a date & a sort of centralish place (for Cleveland area folks, anyway) for coffee?

Wow, am I the only Youngstown/Warren girl around? I wish there was a camraderie with cake decorators around here like there is in Cleveland. I'd love to have cake meetings and have demonstrations/techniques, etc. Count me in, Cleveland...I'll drive the hour 15!
