That is GREAT!! I"m not laughing at you by the way..but that is some serious hair. Best photo ever too.

by the way- you should seriously consider going into business making your cakes on a very part time basis (once you get licensed etc etc in your state/area) because you are at a professional level now. I know it's difficult working full time, having a life, family and even beginning to consider making cakes to sell. But if you can find the balance, then go for it. 

I thought this too! I was all "what? she was still hot!" and then scrolled down EPIC hair, and photo!

Totally agree with EVERY.SINGLE.WORD. of this post, actually.

I feel like I have just only dabbled in making cakes but I find that it gives me an outlet for creativity and without that I will go crazy. I work as an Emergency Dispatcher aka 911 operator and when I get home it is hard to unwind from that stress . Who knew that making custom cakes would relax me. I just love it. I mentioned I loved your screen name- I wanted to ask..is Cakefat meant as a noun meaning the fat content in cake, or something else? I would love to know the origin . I think of how funny it would be if Cakefat was a term for a person who loves cake..cuz if so, I am a total Cakefat!icon_biggrin.gif

 

That's about the same reason why I started doing cakes as well...I have a very stressful job (not like yours of course, but still full of crazy stress) and it was the one thing that I could do and not think about work at all. Also I do a lot of sports/being physically active when I'm free  but I still end up thinking about work..but not with cake or sugar flowers etc. With cakes, all I can think of is getting something perfect...but also it's still a bit stressful as well. Not the same sort of stress as my job or on the same level, but it is certainly a creative release of some kind that I need.

 

I thought both words "cake" and "fat" just went together perfectly (whether we like it or not).  A cake is full of fats and  If I ate too much cake, I'd get  fat.

And I do love some cake despite the fat!

I'm right there with ya Maybenot, but in this instance if she is direct the hair dresser might take it out on her hair.

If she can find out discreetly then she can just start paying for the hair service and tell her she is too busy to make cakes.

Then the hair dresser can't be offended if OP is wrong and she really was giving them to family (not likely)

Or if the hair dresser is guilty, she'd still deny it, but probably would not call her back when her credit ran out and stop trading with her.

She might also not do a good job on her hair after the situation in anger.

So how'd the convo go with your hairdresser?

I texted her yesterday with something along the lines of " great news! I'm getting a domestic kitchen license which means I will be able to start a side business with my cakes! Now I can actually advertise, hand out business cards, and charge real $$$!" Then I told her I would be able to pay for her services in cash and that of course she would get cake perks if she brought customers my way. ( basically I will bring her some of her favorite cupcakes when I go in to get my hair done). She seemed happy about it, but its hard to tell for sure since it was thru texting.
Thank you to everyone who added to this conversation. A lot of good came out of it. It lit a fire under my feet to get my kitchen licensed sooner and not " someday" , and it also resulted in things getting straightened out with the hairdresser. I will probably never know for sure if she was flipping my cakes but at thus point I don't care. The outcome is what's important. Special thanks to Miss Annabakescakes for scrounging up the info on licensing procedures in Oregon. I called and they were super nice and I have an inspector coming out next week to give me a consultation where he will look at my kitchen and advise me on what I need to do before the actual inspection. How cool is that?! I think I will give him a great big boobie hug !icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you so much. You all are so supportive and have given me the confidence to take this next step. Its one thing for family and friends to say " thats amazing, you should start a cake business!" But to hear it from other cake goddesses of all skill levels really puts the writing on the wall for me. Really, you ladies are great.

We were just being honest. Seriously, your cakes are really great. I do not tell that to people who do not have professional cakes. I tell them something else, or just move along!!

same here.

 

I see a lot of people selling their cakes on FB (or even here) and they are jacked UP and just messy all over. And people post things like "ohh incredible" "beautiful". I think that is almost as jacked up as the cake looks...only mothers should do that. Also I'm all for positive encouragement but not  out and out fabrications.

I see that all the time!!! I just want to poke my eyes out when I see a very messy, uneven, dirty, fingerprinted, booger stained cake and people are saying "You should sell these!" or "You should start your own business I bet you'd make a lot of money".  I have a ton of FB friends and when I post a cake disaster for fun they always say stupid things like that!   Really chaps my hide!
