You know you are an addict when you're sitting in church or school thinking about all of the cake possibilities there are out there instead of listening to what's being said.

For students: Finishing a cake deadline before finishing a paper deadline (kind of what im doing now!)

Also--which drives me crazy--when people have birthdays/events and don't ask you to do the cake for them knowing good and well you don't have time to do them!!!

I know ive done most of these

these are awsome/// ok here's mine.
- you gag at the thought of eating a wal mart cake.
- you dh threatens to dress the children in cake boxes just so you'll sign off cc to give them attention.
-you stay up until 4 in the morning reading cc posts knowing you have to be up at 6 (hey i dont want to miss anything!)
- you are up until 4 am spending 6-8 hours decorating a cake for your work for no special occasion and you have to be up at 6 am.
-youre dh thinks cc is a secret society to meet singles disguised as a cake decorating site because that is the only"logical" reason a person would have to spend so much time on one site.
-you give away so many cakes even the neigbors are starting to get sick of cake.
-youre boss walks by your desk at work to ask what youve done all day, and all you have to show is a stack of cake sketches.

...when, for the 3rd month in a row, your DH asks "what is this Paypal Cake Central charge again on the credit card bill???"

This is so funny!

When you convince your husband to take not one, but two Wilton classes so he's prepared in case there is ever a cake "emergency". What a guy!!

Or you have learned to listen to an entire movie (and enjoy it) from the kitchen while DH is watching it alone in the family room.

OK, you all are cracking me up. I don't know how many I was just LOL at and just about peed in my pants!

I must add.... (True Story -- just tonight... )

- You know your an addict when your having trouble with your cake and your DH say's why don't you check that cake thingy place your always on.

- DH is at Wal-mart and he alls to ask if there's anything you need and you send him to the Wilton area in Arts & Crafts for another Flower Nail and then he starts price shopping for you!

I love the ones about getting your neighbors coupons -- DO THAT
I love the one for the RI spackling... haven't tried it but I'll keep it in mind.
I'm also guilty for not answering the kids... just a min and I'll be right there and Oh I guess I need to bake dinner and not work on this cake.

These are all terrific! Glad I found CC!!!

Keep them coming!

- Paula

You know you are an addict when you plead with your grown childern to save the coupons for you also. True story...

You know you an addict when you dont have to buy room freshener anymore because your house constantly smells like vanilla extract or as the kids say it smells like cupcakes...... icon_biggrin.gif

You know you are a cake addict when:
1) You read all these and most most all of them apply - Ok all of them

I saw my three old niece at Walmart today and when she hugged me she told me that I smelled like cake and then asked if I brought her one cause she don't like the ones they make there.

I just love this tread. Good thing all my boys are asleep including DH!


You know your an addict when:

You see the # of post went up on this tread and click on it again.

Your DH comes into the office and says, your on there again???

When you 2 1/2 year old wants to sit on your lap as you are looking up cake ideas and he says: "Mommy I want Cupcake" as he is pointing to a Buzz Lightyear Cake you think he might like.

When you make cupcakes and you 5 year old asks how many he can have.

When your kids fight over the left over cones of icing so they can decorate their own cookie or cupcakes.

You go to your kids daycare (2 times a week) and the other kids are asking when you are going to bring in more cupcakes.

The mom's of those kids avoid you, because their kids keep on asking for cakes and stuff like J-L's mom makes.

You tell your Daycare provider that you will gladly bring in birthday cakes for the little ones & only charge $8-$10.00 to the mom's just so you can practice & the kids will actually eat the cake instead of looking at the store bought cake and say it's not like J-L mom's cakes.

Every Wednesday when the AC Moore coupons come out, and every Monday after the Michaels ones come out, my coworkers bring them to me and there are stacks on my desk.

Is it sacrilege - sometimes I don't get to use them all icon_surprised.gif

WOW I had not even thought of co-workers. But i do print out multiple copies of HL online coupons and keep them in my car so I can stop by and use one each day on the way home.

When your three year old knows the difference between flour and sugar! This is my story from yesterday!

She was helping me in the kitchen today and I was putting in the flour and she was stirring the batter. I kept adding flour and she stopped stirring, looked at me and said, Dat is e-muff sugar, Mom"! She looked at what I was putting in and then said, "Oh, I mean dat is e-muff fowher, Mom!

Silly chicks~ What a wonderful husband you have!

You're an addict when: instead of choosing toys out of shopping catalogs, your children look through the Wilton Yearbooks choosing their birthday cakes for the next 20 years.

I have the kids help out too (when it's for us).

My oldest does really good and washes his hands each time he has too even if it's twice in a row because his nose was itchy!
Then he even knows to get a spoon to get a taste. A new one each time.

I am still working on our youngest! He just wants cupcakes!

You know you are an addict - and have been baking too much lately - when your five year old tells you that for her turn for snack day at school she wants wedding cake. So I made a large sheet cake, torted it, filled it and iced it with BC. I went to bed at like 2:00am thinking I am the world's greatest Mom only to be greeted with disappointment the next morning. She looked at me and said -" n It's not tall and where's all the flowers????????????????You could of at least put flowers on it!!!!!!!! True story.

You know you're a cake addict when...

You're sitting in church looking at the Priest's vestiments thinking how the royal purple and gold pattern would look on the side of a cake. (as for the paying attention part, I've got a 2yo who is going through the "chase" phase, I haven't gotten to actually pay attention at mass since I was 3mo pregnant--when I would started to overheat at some given point during mass at least once or three times, then the active bladder..)..

How about when you are thinking that you need to add powder sugar to your toothpaste to thicken it up because it is the gel kind and it lost its shape as soon as you put it on the toothbrush

You know you are a cake addict when you and your boyfriend are talking about buying a house and you already are calling dibbs on the spare room in the basement for your cake business.
You know your boyfriend is a keeper when you were moving and there was only a little room left in the uhaul for either his grill or my three huge rubbermaid containers of cake decorating tools. He put his grill in storage so I could take my cake tools. Im going to marry that man!! icon_biggrin.gif

You know you are an addict when....

you tell your husband that you are "thinking" about getting into cake decorating and classes while out shopping pricing supplies...

Only to find out that he snuck out of the house to the local store and purchased you the same professional kit you just purchased but were him-hawing about the price without having a coupon!

I LOVE my HUSBAND! king.gif
