Hello all...First off, I'm not coming in looking for a fight so please don't jump on me
After a lot of thinking I've decided to stop selling cakes for now and practice my decorating until I can be financially sound and have my skill high enough to warrant opening my own shop...After the last verbal pistol whipping I got I sat and thought about it for awhile and although I think I do a pretty decent job considering I've only been doing this since January, I'm nowhere near where you guys are...seriously you guys are FABULOUS
And also since I can't bake in my home I have to go to my grammas and it's such a chore to drive to her house, go in the back door to my "changing room" where she leaves me a fresh pair of scrubs and crocs, change my clothes, socks, and shoes so I don't bring in dog hair and slap on a hair net. Scrub up and get my gloves, Bake my cakes, let them cool, wrap and leave for decorating the next day. Clean up and Go back to my changing room, switch clothes and go home and come back the next day and do it all again
And it breaks my 4-year old daughters heart that she can't go and "watch me work" (I let her watch me at home cooking and help with simple prep
). So anywho, I just wanted to say that I love this site and all the advice I've gotten on here from everyone and the inspiration and hope that when I post my practice cakes I'll get some input to let me know if I'm on the right track
And now a couple of questions, How long did it take you all to go from hobby baker to selling? And where can I find those foam cake dummies? Again sorry for the long rambling message I sorta felt like I was breaking up with someone lol
Have a blessed day!
