I am in a funk today. I don't want to decorate cakes. I don't want to decorate cookies. I don't want to make flowers, and I SERIOUSLY don't want to talk to another person on the phone. I just talked to a bride to set up a cake tasting and getting her to decide on what she wanted to taste was like pulling teeth. I still have 4 cakes and 6 doz sugar cookies to go, and my motivation is nil. To top it off, one of the cakes I am making is for someone I really, really dislike, and they left the deco up to me. This is one of those times I really need to stay away from the "gross" cakes...
thanks for reading...just had to vent.
Glad to be here for you.
Yep, we all have those days. They stink. Just take a couple deep breaths, step away from the cake for a few minutes and "have a moment" just to yourself to think of something else. Maybe even take a five minute stroll outside if you're some place where the weather is decent. Then go back and knock out the cakes!
You'll get through it!
I think we've all had those days! Vent away!
sounds like you're getting burnt out...try to take a break before any permanent damage is done (to yourself or others! )[/img]
I think you should make a toilet cake for the person you don't like, and on it write, "Oh crap, I should've been more specific!" Hehehe. Ok, not really, but hopefully that at least got a little smile out of you!
But yah, I get those days too, those are the days that you've got to stop and count a few blessings. Remind yourself of all the things you have that make you happy!!
