TC! I dont check cake business forum much either, which is why I am just getting this.. our base here is horrible about home businesses... you can't do pampered chef, longaberger, home and garden, tupperware, nothing like that. The base commander sucks, he is such a butt head, heck you cant go into the shoppette and buy wine coolers, wine, beer, nothing like that without it being in a double bag so that people can see it. So I know it would be a no go on the cakes. Besides the base closes by Dec 31 this year, and we leave here and go to Langley VA in a couple of months so I think it would be a waste of time to start now. But I may keep her in mind when I get to Langley, so I know where to start there....I imagine being in the states may be harder then over here... thanks again!!!! you and tcrema need to get in the same area and open a business of your own!!! you both would kick butt!!!!!
