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

you step into a hot shower and immediately smell the powder sugar on your skin and hair.

In a dream, you find yourself trying to cover an octagon end-table in fondant!

You know you're a cake decorator when the salesman at Home Depot calls security to cart you away for looking for "cake" tools?? icon_wink.gif

...when you look at iron patio furniture and think it would make a great design on a cake.

...when you go to NYC just to shop for cake supplies.

...when you look at flowered drapery fabric and think it would look great in gumpaste.

...when you spend way too many hours on sugarcraft forums, and not enough time sleeping.

when you start to look at every tree, flower, weed, plant and say "yeah, I think I can make that in a gumpaste or royal icing or maybe even in buttercream" so you pluck it and take it home to try.

SO I'M NOT CRAZY?!?!?!? Thank goodness!! I have done a little of all of this!!! I am SOOOO glad it's not just me!!! We went to Harrisburg for the weekend to meet friends who came up from Fla for a car show...the only place I HAD to go was to Michael's, because the closest one to my home is about an hour away!!! It was so neat to have one just 2 miles from our hotel!!! The stuff I bought there was "my splurge" for the weekend!!!

Well, girls, all I can say is if we really enjoy what we do, there's no reason we shouldn't celebrate it! Just know that you are not alone....

P.S. - I absolutely love coming to these forums. I have learned so much from you all, thank you for being such a great group of people!! icon_biggrin.gif

when you wake up at 2am with an idea for a cake design and have to go write it down so you don't forget it..........
spend too much time daydreaming about the perfect house to accomodate all your cake stuff, and a cake room to work in.........

Am guilty of having cake on the mind as well. As my boss was walking ahead of me yesterday, I told told her that the skirt she was wear would make a very pretty cake.

...when you get in bed at night and your hubby curls up to you suggestively and says in a low, deep, satisfying voice " Ohhh, you smell like fondant...it smells sooo good!" icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

... You walk into Home Depot and the guy in the lumber department goes ahead and warms up the saw, for cutting hardboard for your cake bases.

(really... he does! He even asks what designs I'm doing)

... You see interesting dishes and think about which sized cake would look best on it.

... Your husband knows that if Food Network is doing a cake challenge, you're useless for the next hour, and he goes to play computer games. icon_razz.gif (at least he's well-trained, right??)

When you spend more money on cake supplies then on clothes for you or your children.

When you look on-line searching for purses and shoes and your not shopping but looking for one to carve out of cake and gumpaste.

When you go to Wal-Mary, Krogers, and Food Lion etc... and pass through the bakery section and think my cake is way better than this crap.

When you are standing at Michael's door right at 9:00 AM doing the "open, open, open, open" look. They unlock the door and you make a mad dash for the cake aisle, check out and the cashier asks so what kind of cake are you working on today.

ANd you start looking in the garden section in Wal-mart, Lowe's, Home Depot, Target---ANYWHERE--thinking "Hmmmm, that would make a cool cake stand!".

You know you're a cake decorator:

~when you can keep track of your projects by the gel colors left on your hands.

~when you find a penny and your wish is for a new kitchen.

~feeling guilty for having 'emergency' canned frosting in the fridge...for home goodies, not customer!

~always dreaming of different shapes of cookies and possible new customers to target. muahahaha

This is fun.....

When the Sunday paper comes and all you want to know is if there is a coupon from Michael's in it!

I thought I was just O/C. Thank God for this forum. It's good to know I'm not crazy and that there are lots of others "out there" just like me! icon_lol.gif

You know you're a cake decorator when you decide to do a "use case" on how to bake a cake in your Masters in Electronic Commerce class (Advanced Programming) icon_biggrin.gif

My classmates are starting to look at me really strange.
