What do you mean "little nobody me?" That must not be true, because they chose YOU over everyone else!!!!

Well, I am excited but I want to thank everyone here (and a few ex members). I started doing cakes a few years ago and had no clue what I was doing, but you guys have taught me so much and the support here helped boost my confidence so much.

My husband is very supportive as well and even does cakes with me so that has been amazing as well. Being my ex was abusive and also really killed my self esteem to where I thought I couldn't do anything. But between you guys and my DH I have come a long way. I still have a LONG way to go but I would have NEVER had the nerve to do anything like this without my CC familly.

Thanks everyone. I will keep updated and post pics of course.

JustToEatCake they found me through a site that I advertise on. I was reluctant to even post on the site since I had never heard of it but I have actually gotten a lot of leads from there lately.

Something else that has progressed from this is that The What's Up Shopper (it is a free newspaper that comes out each week to our county and 7 surrounding counties) is going to do a news article on me. They want to feature about my cakes. AND.....I just bought a used BMW on Saturday and the lady who I purchased it from called last night and she knows the people at another regular local newspaper and wanted to see if I would do an article with them as well.

I'm flipping out. I bake from home. I have NO CLUE what I will do it this takes off on me.....
