I know a lot of you tease about cake civilians, but I'd like to know the opinions : When are you officially no longer a civilian?

For me, it's when they've done a few cakes and have the "eureka" moment when they realize it's not easy and it isn't cheap.

You might be a Cake Civilian if .....

You buy cakes, but don't make them.

You think "it's just cake".

You think they come out of the oven all decorated.

You think a 6 tier wedding cake is baked the morning of the wedding.

You understand that a 3-tier, fondant covered, 2 flavor cake covered with gumpaste flowers weddign cake is expensive ... but thinks a 3-tier, fondant covered, 2 flavor cake covered with gumpaste flowers birthday cake shouldn't cost more than twenty bucks .... "Because it's JUST a birthday cake!"

You will leave a loaf of bread on your counter for days and days, but won't eat a cake because it's not fresh anymore since it's more than 4 hours old.

You think all cakes are $14.95 because that's what walmart sells them for.

YOu're not a cake civilian when you can read this list and laugh because you know people who believe all of these things!

(Dang! I should write this stuff down! This is a good one! icon_lol.gif )

Debi -

You should write all your ___Zilla stories down. Of course, the library would put it in the fiction section, because, after all, it's just cake, right? They'd never believe them. But don't worry - we do.

Thanks!

I love these! I am pretty new to CC and to decorating cakes in general. But I love it & have learned so much from CC so far. Now I have made cakes for my nieces & nephews for birthdays, I get a phone call from my Mom .. she says .. So, what kind of cake are you making me for my birthday? I am now officially the family baker ... oh well Lots of practice will come from it.
