Ok I know this is a weird one but i'm in need of a good laugh and kinda wanted to see where this went..I'm curious if anyone else notices these things we do because of our work as a cake decorater..



You know your a cake decorater if you "pipe" your toothpaste on your toothbrush..

You know you are a cake decorator when you can look at anything and wonder "How can I make it into a cake?" or "How can I use it to make a cake?"

You know you are a cake decorator when you walk by the dessert aisle in the grocery store and compare their cake decorating skills to yours (and almost forget that you're there to buy groceries!).

I put this in the other post as well...but I'll say it again:

You know you're a cake decorator when you're watching tv/show/movie and you spot a cake- all your attention goes to the cake!

I was at Target tonight, and as I walked past the childrens' clothes on the way to get a pack of diapers, my only thought upon seeing all the pretty Easter dresses was "wow, THAT would make a nice cake!...."oooh, so would that!...."wonder if I could pull off that in fondant?..."

You know you're a cake decorator when you're at your friends baby shower, and you're wondering if the topper on the cake is fake or fondant. So you touch it with a fork, just to see. And get caught.

lol they understood though icon_smile.gif

or. You know you're a cake decorator when you are playing with your niece. And you make a beautiful rose out of the playdough. And actually get a little protective of it when she tries to grab it out of your hand.

Eventually, I gave it up. And she smooshed it. haha.

I posted this one a while back, but it was football season and, as I rounded the corner, I noticed beautiful white stringwork on my neighbor's bushes. Well, okay, so it was actually toilet paper -- but it was draped very nicely!! icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

Guilty here also. It drives my husband crazy! lol
I also have the habit that when I go to a wedding as soon as I get to the reception area I seek the cake out and take pictures of it and stand there and study it over for 5 minutes. The last time my Mom was next to me and someone was watching me I guess with a weird look on their face and she just explained, "She decorates cakes." lol

You know you're a cake decorator when you have more pictures in your wallet of your cakes than your kids.

Yep, me too. They no longer ask if they can help me when I show up at the cake cases. icon_redface.gif

when walking thru the store (ANY store) and find yourself looking at the products and thinking "I wonder if that would work on fondant?" and then getting excited over it cause you think it could! LOL!

You know you are a cake decorator when your toddler can distinguish fondant from bread or cookie dough, knows how to use ribbon cutting tools, and a fondant smoother!

You know you're a decorator when you start planning your kid's 4th birthday cake the day after their 3rd. (true story icon_biggrin.gif )

When my son was 18 months old we were in a hospital cafeteria where there were different stations and one was a dessert station with cupcakes on display. My son points to the glass and says "buttercream"! I was so proud!! icon_lol.gif

You know your a cake addict when you are playing cowboys or army with your grandchild's toys and think...huh, if I had a cowboy or army cake these would work out ok. Or you are in Michaels or Hobby Lobby taking pictures of various patterns with your cellphone and a store employee asks if they can help you with something...kinda embarrassing...but you don't really care cause, hey, it will look good on a cake.

Yep, I start planning and buying the stuff for my niece's next birthday cake, the late afternoon of her celebration with her Grandpa and Auntie Gomo.

Oh yes, and you know you're a decorator when your husband catches you on the computer and says "Looking at your cake porn again dear??" LOL

My son had to go to the doctor. While we were waiting I was thinking about my daughter's cupcakes. I looked at the plastic tips they use to put on the thing to look in kid's ears... they are in a dispenser on the wall.... and thought.... this would be the perfect tip and if I take some they can all help me with the flowers- so I stole 2 tips. Yes, I really did.
