What do you call yourself?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

I never know what to call myself.  If I say "baker" that brings to mind the guy behind the scenes baking everything from pastries to donuts to cakes, and doesn't mention that I am creating art.  If I say "cake decorator" that makes people think I work at Costco with a bag of canned buttercream piping on roses.  Is "cake artist" too prissy sounding?

Cake designer? Cake creator? Cake chef?

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

My business cards state that I'm an "Award-winning Cake Designer". Please don't call me a cake lady icon_wink.gif.

"Cake lady" makes me think of a woman made out of cake. (Like a robot is a "metal man".)

I say "I'm a baker, I own a wedding cake business."

Usually in response to the person in line behind me at the store who says something witty like "somebody's doing a lot of baking today!" while they look at my 10 dozen eggs and 20 pounds of butter.

I go to the store the same time each week, so the cashiers know me. When someone says something like that they're usually the ones who tell them that I do cakes. What gets me is when someone looks at the pile of flour, sugar, eggs etc and says "Are you baking something? No, I just like to suck on sticks of butter and I do a lot of papier mache.

Ha ha! I would really like to give a sarcastic answer like that sometime.
