I just meant maybe you could donate a cake to a local school, if you are wanting practice.  The school would give you a good base for future customers. I meant feed the teachers, not the students. haha

y 2 year old Grandaughter eats like this all of the time. She teaches me words like Quinoa. She boadens my horizon. I can't get  into the problems of Ameria's unhealthy eating habits and obesity here. Hell I myself gained 20 lbs post 2 surgeries since Sat....

BatterUp I wouldn't forgo idea of sending to a daycare. My last order was paid for by the stepdad since he wasn't the primary care giver. So ya never know. Plus just because its low income doesn't mean a grandparent or someone in the family wouldn't buy it. Or even the teachers.

There is a very low daycare up the street from me. I live in a small nirvanna surrouded by Dates 7 levels...

I would feel bad about delivering cqke to low cost daycare...My brain says fresh kiwis, papyas, banannas, strawberries....

I'm sorry, I must be missing something, (nothing new there, haha!) Why would you feel bad? Most kids I know love fruit.

Im think she is going with since it is low cost she thinks they don't get acsess to many nutritious foods and feels like shoukd would be adding to that with cake. Just a wild guess though.

Ah, I see. Well 3 or 4 pieces of cake a year are going to do a lot more good for their little spirits than bad for their health, lol.

I take mine in to work, and my boyfriend takes some to his work too. 

I remember someone who put on their facebook page asking for people who would post a picture and say it was for sale for a small amount (like say a 8 inch for $20) if someone would get it that day.

Hey guys, i cant really afford to buy dummies to practice at the moment, or just make cakes on a whim to practice and give away.

What ive been doing is reusing my icings to practice. You can practice piping with buttercream on greaseproof paper over and over.

Also i reuse my gum paste over and over practicing modelling figures etc. This really helps me perfect my modelling skills.

My neighbors are about sick of cake too.  I give practice cakes to the workers (guards, cleaners etc) at our housing complex.

they like it but probably think it's strange that I'm giving them a 2 tier cake...I also give them paper plates and forks.

 

There's an old folks home/sr. citizens day care place down the street- I've given them a cake or two as well.  I used to make a birthday cake for whomever at work was having a birthday but I decided I worked with a bunch of weirdos so I stopped that last year.

I guess it depends on what skill you are trying to practice. When I was learning to ice a cake at school (I just couldn't get it). I would come in before and after class and use the same batch of icing and one frozen cake. My chef had would ice it, tell me as she was going, scrape all the icing off and then give the turn table to me and them I would "ice" scrape off and give back to her.

My kids have never been allowed to take cakes or treats into school, regardless of who was in office. It's more of a liability issue than a political one. At their last school they took a book in to donate to the school library on their birthday which I thought was great.

I bring them to work until they get sick of cake, then I feed them to my children until they get sick of cake, and then I alternate.  There is a firestation close- I'll have to hit those guys up.  Cute firefighters are my kryptonite :)

Dummies are super cheap, and you can reuse them. It's cheaper than buying ingredients for every cake you're making.
