Ok, as a way of not continuing to jack someone else's thread any further lol I started a new thread. Basically jenng1482 started a thread talking about how she was getting her braces tightened and wondered if the wires would be good for using in cake, since they're obviously food safe since they're in her mouth!

It made me think of the "you might be a redneck" thing...only about the crazy things as "cake addicts" that we all do that most people would think were odd.

So here are the few from the other thread that were already started, feel free to add any quirky things you find yourself doing! lol

to take this one a step further


If you spend HOURS (seriously, hours!) looking at all the different patterns ON the paper towels before making your selection on which brand to buy..............then you SERIOUSLY might be a cake addict!

Here are my contributions...

When you go through the new Southern Living magazine just to look at the pretty flowers and wonder how hard it would be to make them and how they'd look on a cake....

When you get rid of your shoes because you discover that your shoe shelves make excellent shelves for stacking cake pans on (after I cleaned them, of course)....
Yes, I really did do this one. It's a wonderful space saving device because the shelves stack so nicely... icon_smile.gif

if while the children are watching a dvd you keep pressing pause so you can look at all the different characters to work out how to make them out of fondant (trying to take the picture and separate it into the simple shapes needed)

and then "practicing" them, EVEN WHEN YOU DONT HAVE A CAKE TO MAKE THEM FOR!! you might be a cake addict!

and yes i do this all the time! lol

GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY of all three and more. I am so glad to know that I am not alone with my addiction. And I go to sleep almost every night thinking about cakes and decorating in my mind - no wonder I am so tired in the morning. This has been going on for over a year - ever since I discovered CC! And what a wonderful day that was - hummm...... icon_smile.gif

My DH has become a cake snob - who would have thought - he critiques other peoples cakes and MINE! He can answer almost any question about baking cakes, leveling, stacking, fondant, gumpaste flowers, etc. He knows who IndyDebi, Jennifer MI, SugarShack, CakePro, and Bobwonderbuns are. I can send him to the grocery store with a list of cake supplies and he now comes back with the correct items!!

When even the neighbors don't want anymore cake, cause you just keep making them to play, but don't want to actually eat them yourself! You might be me...I mean a cake addict.
