Do you sometimes make a cake just to try out a design you thought of/spotted on here?

I'm fairly new to all this but I'm looking for any excuse to make and decorate a cake!

Is this a symptom of addiction?? icon_lol.gif

Oh, yes! It is VERY addicting! My whole neighbor likes my addiction though and so do all the teachers I teach with.

This site doesn't help. It only perpetuates the "problem"... I started looking at this site for ideas for my son's birthday cake....3 years later... I'm obsessed with cake! There are just too many cute ideas, and the recipes are delicious. I haven't been back to my neighborhood bakery since.

After 20 something years of cake making, I'm still like this. My coworkers and my DH's coworkers are happy I'm still "cursed" with this symptom, since they get to eat more cake.
If I don't have an order, I HAVE to bake something anyway. I really should be checked out for this problem icon_wink.gif

There should be some kind of patch or something to help relief the symptoms in between cake orders don't you think?

My sons friends think something is wrong at our house if they come over and there is not either cookies or a cake in the oven. One time, one boy said that I must be sick because there was not even any cookie dough in the fridge just waiting to get rolled out! I nearly ALWAYS have a batch of NFSC dough in the refrigerator!

No, it's not just you!!! I'm not even good at decorating (hopefully, practice will make perfect, though!) and I, too, would make a cake every day if I had someone to give it to. In fact, I coerced some poor girl at church this morning into letting me make her Sweet 16 birthday cake. I hope she's not too disappointed with the results!

oh dear sweet cake addict... the first step in addiction is to admit we have a problem... so far the only problems i see are getting into my pants after too much cake and finding even more people to be guinea pigs for my cakes!!! ROFL.... we did an entire string on this called "Im a cake dork!" alot of us go so far as to dance after decorating!!!! so join the masses, we are addicted. this is AA for Cakers.
