Any 2010 to do list you plan to accomplish?


I plan to attend ICES san Dieg by saving money.

Learn to bake gluten free and vegan cakes

Be more active with my local cake group in New York and encourage my cake friends to join your own local cake club.

I plan to practice more and make more cakes.

I plan to attend at least 1 cake convention.

Hopefully, I can turn my hobby into a small business in the upcoming year.

My goal is to win the powerball lottery so I can quit decorating cakes for sale after June to be able to take care of 2 "New Arrivals" due in May. I'd much rather be spending my time with the grandbabies!

I'd like to actually decorate a cake. So far, all I've managed to do is put together and smooth frost a few cakes... tasted good, and looked impressive to friends and family (who are obviously easily impressed), but I don't manage my time well, and haven't gone on to decorate them. I want to get done early enough to do the fun stuff, too!

I plan (okay so hope actually) on being in my own shop by summer, no more renting for me!!!
I've got the ball rolling just looking for some more $$$ to finish up!
That Powerball plan sounds like a good one thumbs_up.gif

Go to ICES and go to a cake competation, if I can afford it.

Every year I think about how I have so many supplies sitting at home that I never use. I really should make the time to sit down at least once a month and try something new or use one of those forgotten supplies on a cake. Or even just try a new recipe.

I'd love to get my cake room cleaned out and organized once and for all. icon_smile.gif

I need to organize all my Wilton Class related stuff as well. It is spread out from room to room in my house.

I also need to work up the courage to actually pull out the isomalt and sugar supplies I bought in St Charles and actually use them once and for all.

This is my list, of course if I will actually do any of it....

Move into a place that the kitchen can be licensed and start my own part-time cake deco business.

Mensch, your avatars are the best. We were watching some PIL videos the other day and yelling "Johhhhnny!" But I kind of miss Henry Rollins.

My cake goals are to clean out my office and organize it. That's it. I think it will take all year to do it.

Thanks for listing 2010 goals. Just like the Nike commercial "Just Do It"

Yeah, I've tried it - for some reason I can't seem to get the pressure just right and it bulges at the edges... and cracks.... Maybe I haven't found the best icing recipe yet....

I just simply want to improve. I have much room for improvement and would love to have some time devoted to do so.

Cake goals:

-Get my shop space finished out so I can start baking there! I've already started to set up appointments with plumbers so I can get my grease trap installed.

-Build vendor partnerships so they consistently refer clients (I actually started this in October. But I'm just now starting to get to know people and talk to them regularly)

Actually too many to list but a couple of biggies are:

1- go to the mini classes in FL in Jan.

2- find a bigger commercial spot I can afford.

3- getting more confident working with sugar & flowers.

4- have wedding cakes booked for almost every weekend through Nov. 2010.

lots of others but these I believe are pretty important

Hello there, creative people!

I hope it's okay to pop in. My goal this year is to take cake decorating classes (easier said than done!). I'm very much a newbie. I also love basic, molded candies and cookies.

Happy 2010!

1) make more money (always)
2) buy an edible image printer - the LARGE ONE - but I have to FIND it first!

mine would be to
do at least one wedding cake a month,
buy a deluxe oven,
get my 20qt hobart mixer fixed
and keep up with all the paper work.
over this past year i have just thrown all receipts and statements in a bag and i have to get them all in order before jan 10th. i dont want to do that again this coming year.'

oh and also put my cakeboss membership to work, again, its something i have neglected to do this whole year.
