You know you're a cake decorator when ...........

post #1 of 108
Thread Starter 
I was sitting at work reviewing some documents on the computer, decided my hands were a little dry, I reached for my lotion which is in a fairly large tube, then next thing I know, I'm subconsciously decorating the back of my left hand with a dragging pearl border. Ha ha ha.

I guess this busy wedding cake week is getting to me. Just thought I'd share. icon_smile.gif

That's funny! I did the same thing earlier and it was a shell! (my particular lotion has a star shaped opening)

You also know you are a cake decorator when:

1) you dream of cakes
2) someone wonders if you have pen on your hand but nope, it is gel color that you can't get off
3) you go on vacation and see if the town you are in/near has a cake supply store to visit

A couple of weeks ago, our church bulletin had a cool scroll design on it. I thought "I need to keep this, this would be cool on the side of a cake." icon_redface.gif

Phew...!!! I was so trying to convince myself that I was NOT crazy. Other Cakers do this too...(number 3). That is the ONLY way I can plan a proper vacation between Feb and August...LMAO!!

..... when no matter what you're watching, if a cake comes on the TV, you put all your attention on it.. the design, the details, how did they do that, could I do that...

.... When you're looking through photos, and come accross wedding pics, you get a bit peeved that there's no pic of the wedding cake. (photo albums in Facebook especially. You're browsing through wedding albums and no cake! How dare they.. don't they know that's what I want to see?? icon_lol.gif )

when you have nightmares of cakes....

when you look outside and see TONES and TONES of designs that would look great on a cake!

That's too funny! Love it!

I was at Target the other day, and they had the large dlear cone shaped floral bags, and my mind went "giant pastry bag". And actually, if it didn't have whole in it, it would be perfect for that!
I also think of cake designs when I see people's geometric shirts.
I lie awake at night dreaming up cakes.

I have a whole blog on my myspace page about this! Some of mine are:

*You see an interesting object and start mentally designing a cake around it.

*Whenever you're invited to a party, your first thought is, "I wonder who's doing the cake?"

*You judge your friend harshly because she has store-bought icing in her pantry.

*Kitchen appliances excite you.

You know you're a cake decorator when:
your kitchen accessories start migrating into the dining room...then the living room...taking up permanent residence there.
Your dh has built more cabinets in the garage for baking supplies than your current family food pantry
You start designing a friend's cake before being asked to do it

Today I was dropping my son off at school and saw some kids in an older grades were carrying castles they built for some class project - my first thought was hmmm can't wait until he has that project - I'll help we can do fondant brick, etc. then after grading they can eat his project! icon_eek.gif

Back up MOM!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Haha number 2 happens to me all the time at work. People look down at my hands now (like my close co-workers who know me) and say "working on cakes again I see." and my response is always the same.

Oh mine is everywhere, I hide stuff in the spare bedroom, garage, dining room, under the couch, everyroom has something about cakes.
I go shopping and look for things that maybe I can use for cake decorating, oh that candybar will be great for a log ect. I dream of the day my daughter gets married so I can make her a cake!
I am getting ready to move and the first thing in the car will be my prized cake supplies. I have it already organized as to my must haves. icon_biggrin.gif

I live in NJ. went on vacation to Las Vegas, there was a side trip to the Grand Canyon (breathtaking by the way). Went into the gift shop looking for souveniers. Guess what I brought home for me???

Chocolate candy "canyon rocks" to decorate cakes. LOL.
