Ok i guess I'm on step 1. Hello my name is Misty and I'm an addict. I was looking in a magazine yesterday and saw an ad that had white gift boxes stacked up with teal ribbons around them and roses petals everywhere and I thought "I need to scan this and put it in my 'Cake Ideas' folder on my desktop." And then I did.

Hi, my name is Candice and cake is my porn.

I sit at work all day with cc open in one of the tabs and when no one is around I open it up and when I hear people nearing I hide it again. It is safe to say I spend half my day on this site. I only pretend that it takes me forever to do my work so that I can lurk in here every 10 mins.


Please dont tell my boss.

I too am a cake addict. The only cure is to make MORE CAKE!

Hi, my name is Delia...

I'm not ready to admit that CC is my addiction icon_surprised.gif But I'm sure that I would get a whole lot more done during the day if I didn't have CC open on the computer ALL the time (except when hubby comes home, I don't want him to see my cake porn) LOL Yeah...I'm still in the denial stage.

Ahem....

1. Admitted I was powerless over my smoothing skills and vowed to order Sugarshacks DVD.

2. Came to believe that I too could have sharp corners on my fondant cakes.

3. Made a decision to ignore requests for cupcake cakes and whipped cream frosting.

4. Made a searching and gleeful inventory of all supplies needed at online cake decorating supply stores.

5. Admitted to hubby that yes, I did order $500 worth of pans, and yes they were necessary but I just apologized so get off my back already.

6. Were entirely ready to tell a customer to go to Walmart if they thought "it was just cake".

7. Humbly asked God for a restrained tongue whilst dealing with Bridezillas.

8. Made another list of necessary supplies and took out a loan against the house.

9. Made amends (again...sheesh!) to hubby for purchasing Agbay...come on, it's necessary!!

10. Continued to take inventory of growing mountain of items "I might need to use one day" and figured out what else I could bankrupt myself on.

11. Sought through Mastercard, Visa and Discover cards to find enough money to charge more supplies on.

12. Having had awakened to revocation of said credit cards...resigned myself to the fact that all I can do now is play on the computer and chat on Cake Central.

Lol.....just kidding. I'm not broke yet!

It helps to know you're not alone! I can spend hours "researching" anything to do with cakes.

OMG!!! Now I know I'm not alone and I no longer feel so bad about my office behavior. The only co-worker I have that I cant trust to know about my addiction calls this website CRACK Central. I always have it open & hid until safe to view. I have grown eyes in the back of my head, I almost cursed when I was refused a privacy screen for my desk monitor, and darn near had a stroke when the office computer would not allow me to access this forum 10 minutes ago.. WTH!!!!!!! I had to shtudown & start over, not to process cases mind you but to access CC. What is so sad though is the fact that my home state is financially broke and they are cutting jobs all over the place and the fear of being fired for misuse of company time & internet access is not enough to stop me. Hey CC, I just hope corp. security is not reading this entry as we speak & preparing to pay me a visit before end of day. LMAO!!!! Yes CC, my name is Angela and I am addicted to CC but knowing is half the battle. Pray for me. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

My name is Jen, and I am a CC addict! I always have a tab open to CC at work and switch to something else when someone walks by. My boss is never around, but I don't want anyone to know how much time I spend online since I don't allow them to have internet privileges. How bad is it that I need to work on getting financials over to the CPA to files taxes, but instead I am here. Did I mention they are for 2007!

No, I DON'T need rehab. I can stop ANY time I want, I just have not decided yet, but, believe me, I CAN, really, I CAN!!!!

Wait a minute!! Isn't DENIAL the first sign we are hooked on something?
Well, My name is Elda and I am a CCaholic. Where do I sign up for the meetings?

Hello, my name is Chris, and I am also a CC addict. I have 2 monitors at work, so I can have it opened on one monitor, and pretend to work on the other. I have a hide button on my mouse, so no sudden movement of the mouse required.

I agree with many above, I too look at things as to how they would be made in cake. My wife claims to have married "Willy Wonka" some times. But when I spend the "extra" money on a weekend away with her, there are no complaints.

So, on to step 2??? icon_rolleyes.gif

NO, make more cake!!! thumbs_up.gif

hello my name is melissa and I am not the only one hooked. My DH carries this web address in his wallet to show people my cakes. I think he is as hooked as me. he is always looking at cake and tells me ideas
my 13 yr. old came home from school this week. He said that I was the topic of his class when a student brought a cake picture that I had done.It was his birthday and he thought the cake was great.Makes mom proud.

I am too a ccaholic!!! Sad part is I am a stay at home mom with three kids one in school the other two are toddlers. I am constantly on the site, and they are always asking to go on nickjr's website. I yell and tell them mommy is busy right now checking her email. They look at me like we can see you are looking at cakes MOM!! Then they sit with me looking through the galleries choosing what to view next. It's one thing to be an addict, but to drag two babies along for the ride is pretty bad. When we hear DH we pretend we were on nick jr, after all I am suppose to be taking care of them right?

Okay I will admit it I am an addict, but I will run at the thought of quitting icon_lol.gif

It's not just cc for me - it's invaded my life. I can't just watch tv anymore...or look at friends birthday pics without zoning in on the cake. I am addicted to this place but also to all things CAKE.
