Does anyone else still get nervous/excited when getting ready to make a cake or treat. Like the day before? It kinda reminds me of my track days that my adrenaline would be pumping so hard I had to take a quick nap while stretching to come my nerves.

I'm like the Pointer sisters ♫ ♪♪ I so excited ..& I just can't hide it...I'm about to lose control & I think I like it ... Oh Yeah! ♫ ♪♪ icon_biggrin.gif

Loose the excitement of every creation and you might as well hang up your pinny (apron) icon_wink.gif

Whenever I do something I know I can't undo, then I get a bit nervous. Or before a big project when I'm asking myself "what have you gotten yourself into this time?" Of course by the end I'm usually very happy with the result so it's been happening less over time, but it's still there to some extent. Guess I just need more practice, right? icon_wink.gif

i have another one...

is it just me, or do you feel like if you don't get a picture of the cake its like you never made it?

haha! of course you remember the late nights and stress, but if you didn't get a picture and the person didn't get a picture, it kind of feels like it never happened since there's no proof! at least thats how i feel lol icon_biggrin.gif that's the trouble with making 'disappearing' art- it only lasts a few days at most!

OMG I though I was the only one. I have crazy dreams a night before decorating and if I don't get a good pic I am sad.

I'm always very excited when making a wedding cake. I'm usually convinced at this tine that I totally suck and should look for a job as a desk clerk or something icon_smile.gif
It never went wrong though, just a little insecure icon_smile.gif

I am doing my first wedding cake this weekend for a friend, I swear I haven't slept in a week thinking about everything and trying to make sure that I have all my bases covered. Hopefully this kind of anxiety doesn't go with every cake from here on out or I am going to need to seek psychological help icon_lol.gif But, I am glad to know that I am not the only one! Last night I was even dreaming about how I was going to deconstruct my "masterpiece" and cut and serve it... I think I may need that psychological help sooner than I thought!

I am so glad I'm not the only one. Of course once I get rolling I'm good! I love the seeing the cake turn from something you turn your head at & go :hurh: (trying to imitate scobbie)

cake_architect thank you for reminding me about the camera...cause I need to get batteries for mine. icon_biggrin.gif

Happy Baking Everyone
