I realize that some members are bakers/cake decorators by profession but I thought it'd be fun to see what sorts of jobs all the other people have! I'm sure it's as varied and interesting as our cakes are.
I'm 25 (thought I'd throw the age in there too) and am a "research associate" for a Medical School. I do cancer research that's funded by the department of defense (sounds so much more exciting than it is).
How about you all??
I work for Roofing Company, family owned. Mostly considered Office Manager, but I do several 'jobs'.
I'm a registered nurse
I am a stay at home Mom to two boys. Jack 4, and Charlie 3. Its great because I am part of a huge play group who gladly let me practice my craft on their kids birthday cakes. Oh and I am 28.
I'm a high school secretary/registrar at an "alternative" school and it's more exciting than it sounds . Cakes are my hobby.
For more fun...

I'm a Betsy Ross of sorts. I make our American flag. If I am sewing the smaller parade/cemetary marker flags, I can sew about 2,000 flags a day. If I am sewing a 3x5 foot flag, I sew about 600 flags a day. I am a busy bee trying to keep our country in flags, and I am proud to do it. I used to be a paralegal for a large company, but the commute was terrible for me with 5 kids to take care of. I finally gave it up for something closer to home. I don't regret it a bit. I had so much more time with my kids and husband, and I also have more time for me.
I'm a social worker.....

I am an attorney in private practice with a cake business on the side. I am moving out of state at the end of the month to be closer to family. I don't have a job in the new state as of yet. I will be doing cakes in my new state, and I wish that I could afford to cake full time. Maybe someday... Oh, I am 37 years old, soon to be 38.
I'm a 20 (almost 21) year old and I work in a Walmart bakery. (which I really dislike) Hopefully once the DH and I get everything straightened out financially, I'll be able to have my own little shop as there's a demand for it around here and there aren't that many shops around.
I've been making wine for over 20 years. Not a glamorous job, but I love it.
