When you are in the dentist chair and the patttern of the ceiling looks interesting enough to apply it to a cake using fondant.

.....When DH asks if he can use the last 3 eggs in the fridge...in fear they are being saved for a cake

.....When your 2 yr old thinks every cake you do is a "cupcake" for her to eat

..... When your 9 yr old says at 10:00PM the night before that she needs cupcakes for a class party tomorrow. And KNOWS you can whip them out because lets face it...you already have all the ingredients.

.... When people are afraid to shake your hand because they are dyed all different colors from your latest creation

.... When you listen to a cake "horror" story and think "Well...you should have ordered it from me"

..... When read a post called "You know your a cake decorator when...." and laugh out loud and shake your head to 99% of the posts because you have done it or will do it icon_biggrin.gif

icon_lol.gif OMG this is so true! I don't know what you use your vodka for, but I use mine to mix with coloring for "painting" on fondant and RI. Dh always looks nervous when I get out my decorations and the gallon-size bottle of vodka icon_lol.gif.

ROTFL.... I can relate to almost all of these (don't have any 3 years olds anymore).

How about when the neighbors sit on their porch in the evenings so they can breathe in the cake and cookie smell that constantly comes from my house, even when I'm not baking. I think it's permanently embedded in the sheet rock.

I get the same funny looks when I guy the 1/2 gallon of vodka. Ha ha

1. When every drawer, cabinet and counter in your kitchen as well as a few hall closets have cake decorating supplies in them.

2. When there is always a pile of sticky decorating bags on the counter waiting to be cleaned.

3. When you are constantly telling your kids, "you can only use this counter for making your sandwich, stay away from my cake!"

4. When you get up in the middle of the night for a glass of water and have to turn on the light to admire the cake on the table waiting to be delivered tomorrow.

5. Whenever you eat cake that you did not make yourself and you do not enjoy it but examine the taste, texture, moisture level and icing flavoring.

6. When the words "Wilton products 50% off" in a Hobby Lobby ad make your heart pitter-patter like it did on your wedding day.

When you overhear your DH talking to a realtor about the kind of house you are looking for and he says "my wife likes to bake cakes so she needs a large enough kitchen for her supplies and an island" My heart just beamed.. he was actually thinking of me!!!! He must like my cakes!!

OK. I know this is a seriously old thread (and I'm not a spammer! icon_wink.gif I swear!) but...

 

You know you're a cake decorator when your laptop's keyboard is dusted with powdered sugar from watching tutorials while making gumpaste flowers icon_biggrin.gif

Ugh! Yes, as well as the semi permanent sticky residue on my mouse and mobile devices!!

Oh! I wish I could get some of those canyon rocks! Post a picture!

And THANK YOU fellow CCers! My daughter had an 'internal organs of the body' display to do for school and the first thing I said was 'We can use the brown fondant in the fridge for the kidneys' then I realised she was looking at me funny....

My daughter refuses to understand why there's very little actual food in my fridge. OBviously I can't waste cake supply space on mere food! I'm very good friends with the fast food places in my area for those pesky times she MUST eat.

You know you're a cake decorator when you have your husband trained to look INSIDE the oven before turning  it on - drying gumpaste flowers.

When you arrive at a delivery with batter on one boob.

When the bride says "can you do this" -   you nod enthusiastically then panic and plan for three days after until you're sure you actually know how to do it.

When you spend two days sanding, scraping and shoveling your driveway and steps for a brides taste test - then find out she just wants cupcakes for her wedding!!!!!!!!

When you try out all your spastic (creative) ideas on your relatives brithday cakes.

When you go out for the day and can't wait to get back home to check your emails for cake chat or potential orders.

When your hands are covered in marshmallow fondant and the phone rings, you answer it anyway then spend precious minutes getting the goop off of it.

When you need to dust the powdered sugar off your shoes before going out.

When your kitchen sink area is covered in airbrush color for days,  It hides everywhere!

When everythibg you se ( cartoons, toys, patterns, etc) has you thinking how yoy can put it into a cake!

When you start reinventing your calendar photos as cakes.

When you turn your spare room into a cake room so you don't have to keep packing up your mess (just shut the door).

When you start spending more time on Cake Central than you do  on your housework (Ha Ha).

When you go to a funeral , and realise you have flowerpaste in your cleavage because you were finishing off a cake right before you left and it was a cold day and you were keeping it warm.

I was sitting outside eating lunch today and started turning all my metal outdoor art into cakes in my mind.

How about Facebooking with your right hand while your left hand is holding a flower in place on a cake, waiting for the royal icing to dry icon_lol.gif?

AYou are making bride and groom figurines, and you are talking to them about having a good wedding night,

Or does that just mean I'm going crazy?

So I looked down at my body to try to understand why he was more smitten than you would see on the steamiest love scene on TV. Lo and behold, it completely made sense to me when I looked down at my body and it was actually a 4 tiered square wedding cake. All of a sudden I completely understood why he was so so helpless and at my mercy! If that is not proof, I don't know what is!

I know this post from 2008 but I literally almost peed just now reading this!!icon_lol.gif

I didn't read all the replies but the ones I read were hilarious and oh so applicable!  You know you're a cake decorator when you're in Lowe's and see things that would be great for cake decorating (ie- a water heater liner as a HUGE round cake pan!!!)
