When you go to Hobby Lobby's cake department so much with your best friend, and they think she, too, is a cake decorator...And sometimes she thinks she is one, too.

When you send your DH to get cake "groceries" and he automatically knows to bring home 50 pounds of cake flour, 50 pounds of granulated sugar, 35 pounds of oil, at least 24 pounds of powdred sugar and at least 9 dozen eggs. And 2 gallons of milk.

And then the regular food groceries.

When you find out that the local cake baker "get a cake from her!" went out of business, and that all her equipment and rental house where she did her business is for rent/sale, and you think (wish, hope, desire) that you had the time, money, and success to make it yours!
Well, maybe one day!

OMG this is such a fun thread now, with all these additions.

-When you start buying double the amount of dish detergent during those months when everyone orders buttercreamed cakes

-When you husband complains about doing the dishes. Not because of dinner, because there is inevitably some pans or spatulas involved in the business.

-When you start wandering through antique stores keeping a lookout for cake stands

-Most of all: you start thinking about double uses for everyday things: (using fat straws for dowels, paper towel tubes for storing silpats, cookie cutters for making indentions on cakes, dressmaker's pins for everything!)

And when your freezer is always filled with bags of cake scraps!

When your American Ideal is Colette Peters

when you look at everything and start to think " how can i make that edible" or "that would make an awesome cake"

when you go to the supermarket everyday... to buy powdered sugar, butter or flower...

I knew I was when my husband set our TiVo to automatically record Ace of Cakes and Food Network Cake Challenges!!

And when I actually had a dream about MOVING to get a larger kitchen with more counter space.

How about when your fridge has all your frosting containers in all kinds of colors from the last few cakes you did.
Or when your family has a sweet tooth all you gotta do is send them to the freezer for the leftover cake you made into cupcakes.
Or when your pantry has more cake decorating ingredients than other groceries.
