Disaster with the decorator

post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 
Okay, so...I started doing this seriously in October... I've been making almost a cake a week........I was a size 5 then icon_cry.gif

As of Christmas, I was a size 8.. THREE SIZES IN THREE MONTHS!!!! icon_cry.gif

For Christmas I got a membership at the YMCA from my hubby...
I think I need to stop sampling my cake/icing/buttercreme/fondant/filling..........

So it turns out that while 2+2 stil equals 4..... cake/icing/buttercreme/fondant/filling = JUNK IN YOUR TRUNK.

Thanks for listening...maybe there is Anabuse for sugar??? LOL

I went to a cake convention and you can tell all the "professional" decorators - There weren't any skinny ones!

Eh, I could just slap you one for being a size 8... would that make you feel better? Hehehe. Just kidding!

I try not to eat much of what I make, like it was mentioned, only when it's something new.

I used to be a cake fiend, like I would make a batch of cupcakes and . . . sure enough they would be gone in 2 days. Every time I would walk past, into, or not even by the kitchen I would have one. So, I know what you are talking about. But that all changed when I started doing it a lot. I think it was all the shortning I was buying. Now, it is just a taste to make sure it's good.

As much as I feel for all that have gained weight, how hard is it to just not overeat the cakes??????? I love cake, and will have some here and there, test what I am making but seriously, to eat so much that you all are gaining that much weight? You need some self control! lol.

ilovecupcakes, it's not the cakes. It's the frosting!!! Oh, yum! I think I have some leftover in the fridge right now. I will NOT succumb! I've gained about 30 since I started decorating last year icon_surprised.gif . That frosting can STAY where it is!

I gained 30 my first year, too! I work out now to offset my addiction. What's funny is that when I complain, people are like, "You have to sample it to make sure it's good!" Like it's totally acceptable for bakers to have a little pudge on them. I guess skinny bakers/cooks can't be trusted! icon_biggrin.gif

If you can resist the first bite, you'll be ok. As long as I don't have even a taste, I can resist them all, but if you taste it...then the rest of its little friends talk to you from the oven, fridge, cake pan, etc. Don't worry, it still hasn't prevented me from the terrible disease I've contracted....its called bigassitis... icon_biggrin.gif

Oh my God TJ, I don't have that, but I do have the closely related Abdominus Giganticus. I'm here for you sister. We can get through this together! thumbs_up.gif
