Just wondering.... about this group...stupid idea? - Page 2

post #16 of 121
I think this could be fun! I'm really wanting to make more cakes, but my friends and family are all "caked-out"! It would be great to be able to help someone out and get in more practice at the same time. I'd definitely like to participate!

Maybe Heath could set up a special forum area for this with a listing of who is willing to do this and where they are located. Like the first post would be If interested in participating post below with your information and we'd come in and post our information like mine would be Name: Becky, Location: Eastern Shore of Maryland, E-Mail/PM: I'd prefer PM's at first then maybe emails to finalize if needed. Something like that. And then people that are in need of our "services" could just PM the person closest to the location they need to send a cake to. I think it'd be great. And if anyone was concerned about paying for supplies and stuff maybe they could ask that a check for the exact amount of the NEEDS would be that way they aren't spending more then they would themselves. Like it would cost me about $10.~ to make a 8" 2 layer cake with buttercream icing give or take and it would cost them about the same thing to make it..... get what I'm saying?

OK...Who knows how to contact the "powers that be on this forum"? I was thinking of it being a voluntary thing and then if money got involved that would be private. I suppose if I was asked too many times I might say I can but I really need to charge something.... I am in the Santa Clarita Valley... not up in Sacaramento w/the Governator...LOL! Voluntary cakes would be limited in what was done or worked out between folks. But you know even our worst is often way better than the stores.... Not necessarily wanted it to be a way for business folks to advertise.... but they must have some way to be listed as a resource if someone wanted to know. Like if I started out wanting a voluntary "sweet thought" sent to someone and no one replied but I knew of folks in the business via this board.... I think that is off limits though... not for generating business.... I don't know...thinking aloud....

I think it's a great idea. I don't really know too many people out of state that I would want to be sending cakes to, but I would love to help somebody else out. Let me know!

Titansgold - LOVE the saying!!!!! But they do get moody, so it's kinda like having a wife who will squish bugs LOL. FYI, all these are prior, but:
Me - USAF
Fiance - USMC
Ex-Dh - USNavy
Father - USArmy
Ds (icon_cool.gif - wants to be a pilot in USAF
Dd (4) - is a "Submarine" and wants to be a Marine



I would definantly be up for the volunteer thing! I'd say keep expenses under $10 plus gas, you can keep a "favor tally" ie you can get a favor, but have to do a favor before getting another. We would have to understand that the design is ultimately dependent on the skill and time of the decorator, but some may go "all out" if they are trying new skills. This would be basically single tier all occasion or birthday cakes, and special occasion cakes would be on a paying or private basis, not volunteer. I REALLY like this idea! It would give us more people to bake for, and the "pay it forward" basis is PERFECT!!!
