How many of you actually eat cake?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
You know, before I got into baking and decorating again, I would be a happy camper if someone offered me a slice, but now that I'm baking and decorating myself I find that I really don't want to eat cake. I love baking and decorating them, I just don't want to eat them. Anyone else feel this way?

I also use to love cake, now I have no desire to eat it.
I think you work to hard on it and then don't want to destroy it.

Is that question a joke!?! icon_lol.gif I have never met a slice of cake that was a stranger to me haha! I know what you mean though. I recently made my DH's birthday cake and a friends wedding cake all in the same weekend and it was a bit much! But thankfully I recovered very soon and was able to eat cake again!! icon_smile.gif
Cake's a powerful food. Cake can actually bring people together. You know... "It's Bill's birthday" "Yeah, I hate that guy." "There's cake in the conference room." "Well, I should say hello."-Jim Gaffigan

Hi Debbi!!

I generally don't eat cake either!! Never really have been a cake eater, just love the way they look!! I enjoy decorating them and feel a great deal of accomplishment when I do them, especially the big ones!! If I happen to go to a reception where I made the cake I do usually have a piece just to see how it is!!

I agree, never been a time that I don't want to try my cakes, cookies, candies, you name it. I have a major sweet tooth. Have to make sure it really is good for my customers.

I agree with you, Dodibug! I love cake, icing, pretty much anything in the dessert/sweets category, especially if it is chocolate! However, I do find that when I make something, dessert, dinner, whatever, it is not as good as when someone else makes it. Why is that? Then I drive my husband crazy asking him if he is sure it is good, even when he has told me ten times that it is.

I eat my cake if I'm at the party. I also eat other people cakes also, just to see how they taste and the icing. Especially if the cake came from a bakery. I think of it as tasting the competition. The only thing I hate is when I'm at a party people always assume I will cut the cake.

One of my "cravings" from time to time was cake with BC icing. Now that I'm surrounded by it, I find I don't crave it..so good thing is I don't taste (more than is necessary) the things I am making..also big plus is when I am somewhere else and cake is offered (which is often from a grocery store), I have no desire for it, because now my taste buds want a higher quality cake and icing and the store cake just doesn't cut iticon_smile.gif LOL

People do that to me, too! I don't want to be responsible for cutting it! I already made it, now they want me to cut it too?

i'll eat cake, but i generally don't touch frosting unless it's been made by me, in which case it's likely mousse or ganache, and not buttercream. however, other people are always so apologetic when it's a cake they've baked, "i'm sure you could do so much better", which irks me, cause i don't feel that way at all, and i'm always really appreciative of other people's work. mostly, people don't want me to tell them what the nasty grocery-store cake they've bought is made from, as i can usually tell by sight and taste what's gone into the cake and how it was made.

i love eating decorated cookies. i'm super-lazy when it comes to dough-making so at christmastime i usually use ready-make dough for gingerbread and butter cookies and fancy them up with my own royal icing.

i'm fine being expected to cut a cake -- most people are very timid and too-careful around cakes and as a result they do a lousy, messy job cutting, and i'm a little compulsive and like to do it as neatly as possible.

I am so glad this question was asked debbie!

I really do love cake, icing, and anything chocolate. But recently I just got into baking cakes and I don't like icing as much as I use to. I still love cake and chocolate!

I am in the wilton course currently and we have to bring in a cake each week. I don't know what to do with the cakes.
I can only eat so much cake!! and this is way over my limit.

I will still eat cake, but I'm not as compelled to go back for seconds. I still like to taste my creations whenever possible. Before, I would eat HUGE slice of cake, now a little peice will do fine. (With the except of the ding dong cake a made over the weekend....could have at the whole darn thing!)
