Ironbaker: That was a Rice Krispies commercial. You haven;t inhaled too much powdered sugar....yet!

Congrats on drumming up your business, Cakegal.

Nothing beats word of mouth, well...except tasting!

Good for you Cakegal! icon_smile.gif I think you've inspired a new fashion statement here, we're all going to be going out dressed in our best icing. LOL!! icon_biggrin.gif
I just re-did my 'calling card' a couple of days ago, it used to have a butterfly on it and a nice little quote. (I give them to Moms I meet at the park when my kids are playing with their kids) Now it has a big cake on it and it says "Celebrate every day!' I don't want to seem too pushy telling them I bake cakes right away, but I thought the cake pic might bring it up in conversation faster. ha ha. Maybe we need to get Jackie to make a t-shirt design that says "I'd rather be cake decorating" with what looks like splotches of frosting around it!! I would DEFINITELY buy at least one. icon_lol.gif
Time that you enjoyed wasting wasn't wasted.

Thats great, I'm not that out going to announce that i have cakes to do. I usually just say that i'm working.

Now the oddest place i got an order from was the post office. I ordered an agbay cake leveler. And when the post master saw the box she was so curious that she asked what it was. So then we got talking and i ended up with 2 cakes out of the deal and she said they were a big hit at her party.

Mind you we have a very small PO and so its quite easy to start chit chatting with the postmaster esepecially since she is by herself all day.
