It's all your fault. Yes, all of you, with your great tips, stories, ideas, and not to mention your pictures of your awesome cakes, cookies and cupcakes! Your all the reason why I never get anything done. I start out looking for ideas, or receipes, and BOOM the night is gone, and I begin to wonder about you all. How did you all get the way you are, so creative. Are you born with it? I know practice, practice, practice, but you gotta have something to work with! Sometimes I say to myself, No, I won't look at what everyone is doing, but I can't stop myself. Just like the warning, This site is highly addictive!!!! Anyway, I love you all, and another night passes with nothing in the oven.

There's a reason I hold the record number of posts on here, so far! icon_redface.gif Addictive .... not getting other stuff done ....

1600 here in the uk, and the time finds me sitting at my desk at work getting very little done, but looking at "cake porn" as it is referred to by my colleagues. Love this place soo much. Ive learnt everything I know so far from the wonderful people here and I imagine I will continue to learn from you great people for a long time. XXXX

I think there should be a disclaimer like on the back of lottery tickets.

If you have a cake central addiction and you need help, call 1-800-CCADICT. There are support groups available. But please refrain from accessing site to support group for further addiction problems. Therefore affecting your your daily lifestyle.

crumbcake... how dare you blame all of us!! The truth is, you're just too weak to walk away!! You are easily lured by buttercream and fondant. You are spineless is the face of excellent piping skills! YOU are the weakest link! Go ahead... try and close this window and log off... I dare ya!!! icon_lol.gif

No wait, seriously, don't go. If you go, then someone else might find the courage to do it, pretty soon everyone is finding 'outside interests' and then it's just me and Debi sitting here trying to give each other advice. icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif Don't do that to us!!

I am a CC addict too. I'm SO happy/sorry that I found this site. I'm on it constantly, reading forum posts, looking @ pics, etc. I have a kinda slow job so I'm on all day long pretty much. Then I got my wireless network up & going @ home so now I can surf CC from my couch which makes the addiction worse b/c the site is WAY MORE convenient!! My BF just laughs & says "on your cake site again?" icon_rolleyes.gif

Have cakes books with me at work, read, study...get home at 5pm, Log onto CC...walking around putting dishes in dishwasher, running back to CC...sit eat dinner, sometimes at computer (Im alone due to honeys/daugs schedules). Yikes!!! 9pm, put wash in, fold cloths real quick, put them away later...Back to CC...heck!!! 1130pm, rush to shower, get cloths for work tomm. Bedtime to rise again at 430am.

I should be piping 300 billion RI flowers at the moment....

Does anyone carry an idea book with them so they can sketch out a quick cake idea or write down flavor combos?

Ok, Recovery program for CCer's...there is no way, if they had us on Intervention...we'd fall off the wagon immediately...I was out shopping at the cake shop yesterday for tylose. Went to few other stores..grant you I was only going out for tylose.

I got into a conversation with a few women at Hobby Lobby, and Michaels..about I have 2 cake orders from that, and I was gone 4hrs...Got home, and guess what...Yep!!! LOGGED ON TO CC...for another few hrs before dinner. I was then last night we were watching a dvd and here i was with a debbie brown book on my lap reading and looking up at the dvd. icon_biggrin.gif

ARRRgggghhh!!!!! I need a Fix!!!!!....going surfing on CC....

I do it to.. Since the day I became a member, which wasn't that long ago, I have been on here AT LEAST 6-8 hrs out of my day. NO LIE! I get to work at 7:30 monday-friday and I log on to CC as soon as I get to my desk. I have a slow job for right now too, Farming Company and it's not quiet Farming Season. CC is on all day until I leave at 4:30-5 and it's right back on when I get home. My husband just laughs at me and my daughter will get right in my lap and look at the cakes with me. (She comments on ALL of them icon_smile.gif ) I have learned SOOOO much from this site and I want to thank ALL of you. It is your fault that I am addicted to this, but it's because of all the advice, tip and encouragement I get from everyone.

Luvsfreebies......I DO carry around a notebook. I am always sketching out cake designs. If someone EVEN mentions a theme for a party/get-together I've already got a picture drawn out before they can shut up of the cake I would do for them icon_biggrin.gif . It's terrible...LOL But I love it.

i wonder if they can track the hours each of us spend on here.. because exactly like jer702, this site is open as soon as i turn my comp on in the morning at work, and then sometimes i even stay later than i'm supposed to to finish reading whatever forum i am on at the time... it's sad. but a good sad icon_biggrin.gif lol
my work just keeps piling up.. but i can't help it! i'd rather be here than filing papers icon_smile.gif

ahh.. the peer pressure. gotta love it
