Oh, I paint...on cakes, I scrapbook...my cake pictures, I draw...cakes. So, no I don't think there is anything I do that is non cake related. Isn't everything about cake though?

Drawing, painting, sewing (draperies and slipcovers, not clothes), interior decorating, and gardening (flowers and veggies/herbs). I've been wanting to learn stain glass art, that's my next venture.

adven68, your paintings are awesome.......WOW!

Living most of the time in an RV I don't have room for the supplies any other hobbies need. I do some jigsaw puzzles, and reading.........that iticon_sad.gif

cross stitch and collect antique asian china and international coke items.

I read when I can ... and i could read more if I'd just log out of CC once in awhile! icon_lol.gif Fortunately, I'm a speed reader so when I have a couple of hours (like when we drive back home to visit family), I can get a whole book read.

It's so true......everything is cake related in someway!!!!!!!LOL

I love camping , being a beach bum, and riding my motorcycle . Yes, I am a motorcycle mama.... and nana. My grandson is my other full time hobby. He is three and my little cake apprentice!!! Now that my kids are grown I get to pursue my passion as a cake maker and turn it into a business.

Foremost, I LUV to read...at any given time, I am usually reading at least 3 books. One on my bedside table, one by my chair in the livingroom, and one in my vehicle/purse for when I have a few mins to kill, while waiting somewhere.

I make homemade lye soaps...with herbs and essential oils. Used to sell them at festivals (with my best friend)...but we both work full time in nursing and have families...it was just too much...giving up every spare moment to make it and then to sell it.

I love to go "antique-ing" with DH and friends. Don't get to do it as much as we used to. I am most interested in primitives.

Gardening/home canning is my summer hobby.

Cake decorating is a hobby for me, as I work at the local hospital for my day job. I wish there were somewhere to work doing cake decorating, but all we have is WalMart and HyVee....I don't think I'd be interested in giving up my pay and benefits to work at either of those.

I've been a quilter for 20 years now, but have barely touched it in the last 3 months because I've been practicing making cakes -- oh, and did I mention that friends just bought me the cutest fabric with chocolate cakes all over it, and I found an adorable yellow fabric covered with cupcakes? Take a look:

Lori 17201,
Can you elaborate on "historical cooking"? Is this tied in with your re-enacting?
