I must say that being part of CC has softened me a little (shhhh! don't tell anybody! they all think I"m a harda$$!). I thought my icing recipe would go to my grave with me, too, but here it is, posted on CC to share with (how many members.....? 95,000??)

You guys are a bad influence on me! Being so nice and caring and sharing 'n all!

I'm happy to share recipes in this forum. I appreciate all the recipes people have shared here at CC and am more than willing to help out a fellow cake decorator that I don't personally know. I also happily share the recipes of foods I bring to parties. However, I would certainly not share the recipes of things I sell, such as cakes and cookies with people I personally know. If they can make it themselves, why would they buy them from me?

There was an episode of "Friends" about this once. Everybody loved Phoebe's grandmother's chocolate chip cookie recipe but she died without leaving anyone the recipe. So Monica tried to recreate it making batches and batches of cookies. As it turned out, they all realized it was the recipe on the bag of chocolate chips. Pheobe's grandmother had always pronounced "Nestle Tollhouse" with a french accent when describing her cookies so no one was the wiser.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE RECIPES ON BOXES, BAGS AND CANS WHEN BUYING INGREDIENTS FOR YOUR CAKES.
REMEMBER SUGAR, SALT, AND VANILLA ARE YOUR FLAVOR ENHANCERS. EVEN IF A CAKE RECIPE DOES NOT HAVE VANILLA-ADD A TEASPOON TO ENHANCE THE OTHER EXTRACTS AND SPICES.
HAPPY BAKING AND DECORATING,

I've had that horrible experience, as have many others, of sharing a recipe with someone, and at the next function...you guessed it - YOUR RECIPE!!! Then everyone is saying, but I thought that was YOUR RECIPE (you gave it to so and so, but not me), and I smile on the outside and cringe on the inside - like now I'm going to share with everyone - NOPE, not anymore!!!

I'm polite about it - I usually tell other family, friends, associates, whoever that these are either family recipes that stay in the family to be handed down or are my own creations, which I will not share for the obvious purpose of using these in my business to make money. If I got it out of a book, then I'll share, but not any secrets about the tweaking I've done to make it my own.

It took my MIL 10 years before I got my hands on the family recipes - guess she figured I might be staying by then icon_smile.gif - and I have - so my children will get these.

My mother's family was a taste and bake family from way back - they never wrote anything down, so I do the best I can with what I've got to work with, but nothing ever tastes as good as when mom makes it. I've tried to get her to write things down for years - won't happen.

And doesn't it make you feel so good when your family asks you to make something that is your recipe for them - my son loves my potato soup, and it is about that time of year when he'll be asking for it soon. In fact, my daughter's friend made some potato soup and brought to work - my daughter promptly told her "this isn't my mom's soup!" All I could do was smile - but she doesn't get the recipe yet either icon_smile.gif

Debi, tell me where you want to go when your older and where you want to be buried and I'll do it for your recipe!



leily, boy, if that isn't the ultimate in brown nosing I don't know what is!!! LOL


I like sharing food recipes for pot lucks and family dinners and such, but when it's a cake for a special function or a customer and someone asks for the recipe I kindly tell them I don't give out my cake recipes. Now why would I give a potential customer my recipes? I feel no obligation to be that generous, let alone foolish.
