Today is Friday of a holiday weekend, and I gotta tell you: I would rather be decorating cakes than working today.
Alright, enough whining........................
Agreed! I work from home on Friday's, and my kitchen is just calling to me!
Most Fridays I feel like that...I rather be at home decorating than being at work.
I'm off work for the summer but haven't had a REASON to make a cake for a couple of weeks now and I'm getting itchy! DH's birthday is coming up on the 13th, though.
I finally get a cake to do next week - a birthday at work! Hooray!!! I want to leave work now and check to make sure I have everything I need!
I'm sitting in my cubicle, dreaming of cake. My niece's 8th Birthday is next weekend, so I've got pink and purple cake ideas running through my head. I wish I was home looking at cake ideas instead of here working!
I would rather be relaxing that decorating cakes!!!! I wish I had blocked out this weekend!!! OH well, next weekend long overdue vacation NO CAKES for a whole week!!! NO CELL, NO PC, nothing!! yahoooo
I would rather be cake decorating than looking for a job!!!!! I recently graduated from college and the money is not coming in. I actually took a hiatus from decorating cakes and starting back up again to get the word of mouth is not that fun :p
so...all of you guys that are actually working and making money, be happy
You brought it into a great perspective, stepOnmi. I am VERY thankful for the blessing of a good job, and need to stop whining. You are correct.
Well, maybe a lot of you (except for Tina, who really NEEDS a vacay) wish decorating WERE your full-time job. Taking advantage of impending retirement and a pension check to back me up if things don't work out at first, that's just where I'm headed. I fill all my work-free days with cake/cookie/cupcake projects that will round out my decorating "apprenticeship". A few orders are even starting to come my way! (Home bakeries are allowed where I live, fortunately).
I hear ya! I would always rather be decorating than working any day. I tried to see if I could make it a side business and cut back working, but no go..just not worth it-I think I made $.08 an hour. Maybe in semi-retirement.... But it is waaay more fun as a hobby anyway. At least you are pining for it and not stressing over the ripped fondant on a cake you have to deliver to a customer in 2 hours!
Yes, I agree working w/ cakes is more fun as a hobby. I keep thinking that maybe I'll start a part time cottage industry with it, but I think I'd be miserable. I love working with cakes, but my life is so wild that it needs to be on MY terms, and not obligations to customers. Maybe after I retire, but not now...
