Just browse "Cake Decorating" or "Cookies" directories, or the tutorials to see all the time and effort people generally put into helping one another. I would say there there is A) 70% encouragement and help, advise, good stuff, etc... B) 20% drama about collecting payment, what to do, how to handle a bridezilla and c) 10% complaints, arguments and newbies with drama issues.

Remember, we are heading into "cake season". At Christmastime this past year 2008, there was nothing to be found but advice on family cakes, yule logs, tutorials, etc..

Just go with the ebb and flow of CC. Its a GREAT place and a lot less snarky than so many other forums. I can name a few, but that would be adding to the drama. Suffice-it-to-say, CC is generally not about drama between decorators, it is a place to hear and be heard and encouraged, ok? icon_smile.gif


*big vanilla buttercream hugs for you* Sorry if I got you all sticky!



I understand that...but as i said it was my opinion and from what i've seen and read lately. Of course the threads don't have a subject where u immediately know theres going to be drama. The topic could be something like "I am making a pink cake but i don't have pink coloring what to do?" and of course u have ur comments that are very helpful and then there can be one person who makes a snide remark and then it turns into a war zone. I never said CC was about drama I said that these innocent threads always turn ugly and those threads are the one that generally get the most views and comments. U can agree or not its my honest opinion and I'm done with it thumbs_up.gif

I prefer chocolate buttercream icon_wink.gif

Remember everytime you point your finger there are 3 pointing back at you.... thumbs_up.gif

If e-mails become a hazle contact your local police, file a report for harassing e-mails. The police investigator will obtain an IP address from the e-mails and track down the sender. Go to court take out a no contact or restraining order against the sender explaining that this person is placing you in fear of your personal safety (after all nobody is supposed to have your personal info). The order will go to court and the sender will get a good reminder from the judge. This will teach that person to mind their own business and step-up his/her game if they want to stay in business.
Tell that lady to quit being a clown, obviously shes got no idea what shes talking about. Talk to my supervisor or they will pay you a visit It just doesnt work like that She probably lost a client to you and she is bitterIgnore her but if it continues, you know what to do. Dont warn her, just catch her by surprise and document everything.
And by the way, in GA, varies from county to county the ordinances and laws for home bakers. Ck your county and city, maybe you are just steps ahead to become legal. icon_biggrin.gif

Don't sell until your legit & for who try to intimidate, call their bluff! Ask them for all their info. & see how they respond. More then likely they'll stumble, if their legit, call they're supervisor for harrasing you.

Dkelly & Indydebi, I talked to my husaband & he said you guys are right. It's easy to avoid the drama threads, but when you think it's sincere & then it's a hoax, THAT'S CRAZY! I just fell in love with this site & I enjoy the coversations & the...uh...we'll call them debates with everyone on here. The knowledge, advice, & support is great. I know those that feel the way I do will still be there, so we can continue to support each other! icon_biggrin.gif

There were some loop holes in the story and someone did some serious investigating and found that she had lied about the event, stolen the pic of the cake and photoshopped it. She angered a lot of people because everyone was being so supportive and giving her good advice.

Oh good I'm glad you reconsidered and that you'll be sticking around.

You're right, the people that share our passion for baking/decorating will always be here to support each other............the drama trolls will only stick around until they get bored and move on to another site.

This is an awesome site, I've learned so much here......much more then I've learned in any class I've taken in the past. icon_smile.gif


To the OP have you received any more e-mails from that person?

Way to hi-jack a thread ppl....I apologize to the OP for all of those that felt the need to take it over and use it to rant or finger point at others.

I'd also like to make the point to those that appear to have issues with our forum, YOU CAN ALWAYS JUST LEAVE, if you don't like it here. Just saying...instead of whining about how much it bugs you, and finding fault with everything. This is not "Dear Abby", or the "The National Inquirer".....

We don't much care about your complaints, until this type of "thread hi-jacking" takes place, and then we mind very much. It's not very professional or mature on your part, but we do hope that something here will be helpful to you in your cake decorating endeavors.

It's like the saying goes, "If you don't like the place your visiting you can leave, and don't let the door hit you in the a@! on the way out".
Tell me I can't, and it will be done....

I normally don't post anything in regards to this kind of thing, but I couldn't help but take notice of something. Someone who doesn't like whining/finding fault/complaining/etc. usually wouldn't resurrect a thread that has been dead for two days. Just saying...

LOL!

Momkiksbutt, you have to admit: the OP already had her question answered several times over. Oftentimes threads go off topic once numerous people have answered the original question...it's just part of the natural flow, and IMHO it's quite welcome IF things get controversial; instead of fanning the flames, people go off topic to diffuse the situation and remain friendly and upbeat.

To the OP, if you don't want the thread to go off topic, I advise you to request that the moderators lock the thread. Happens all the time for OT threads, not just for the crazy ones thumbs_up.gif.

10 pages...WOW...i'm not reading them all.

However, I dont know if this was addressed or not about reporting your info to the IRS.

If its a hobby, you really don't need to report it to the IRS. Especially if you make less than $3000 a year.


Tune in tomorrow on Cakes Of Our Lives for another exciting episode of........she stole my design... icon_biggrin.gif
