You drop a bag of walnuts all over your kitchen floor and instead of swearing you yell, "oh crumb coat it!"

you know you're a baker when your signature scent becomes vanilla extract....

I actually bought vanilla perfume. LOVE it. And you know you're a baker when after a late night of decorating followed by silliness and uncontrolled laughter your husband says you must have been sniffing too much of that white stuff...........Powdered sugar of course.

You know your a cake decorator when you are at a funeral and you realise that you still have the packet of flowerpaste in your cleavage that you put there to keep warm while you worked right up until it was time to leave.

You know you're a baker when you start disinfecting the kitchen to fix breakfast.

^^^ LOLOLOL!!! We need a 'spank' emoticon.

You know you're a baker when in a moment of weakness you decide to buy 2 slices of cake from the grocery store bakery you used to swear by in your pre-baker days... and you can't eat a bite without analyzing texture, moisture, and noticing the artificial taste you never paid attention to before.

I can't even enjoy any cake these days. Every slice is an opportunity to analyze and evaluate rather than savor. Sigh.

That had me laughing, too!

I think that's what's known in the US as gum paste? It's a type of paste that you make flowers with... you can literally roll it so thin that you can see through it. It does dry quite brittle, but it's how you get realistic flowers. x

Yes Flowerpaste is what you would call gumpaste , I think, it is what we make flowers out of , I was taught if you can't see through it when you roll it out it isn't thin enough.

In winter it is easier to roll out when it is a little warm , so I tend to keep it handy .
The worst thing was I was sitting next to another decorator at the funeral and she saw me find it. We both had to go outside under guise of coughing fit to stop the giggles.

I hand washed a new garment for the first time yesterday and the water turned a fantastic magenta. My mind instantly went to cake and I had to reel myself in with a stern, "This is fabric dye, you goof, not food coloring or even beet juice!"
