AObviously we all have cake in common but I'm curious about what else we may have in common with each other. Or our differences!

Aside from cake decorating, what are your hobbies? I'll go first: I love archery!

AI do some sewing. Cooking, cookie-ing, a bit of gardening. I used to read and run.. Now I have 2 kids, so not much time for anything at all! I squeeze my caking in during Fireman Sam and naps.

AI've been thinking about taking up sewing. Then I wouldn't have to take my husband's favorite pair of shorts to my momma everytime he rips a new hole in 'em(those sorts have seen better days!) I can sew buttons back on; that's about it!

I try my hand at gardening every year... and fail miserably every year... I'm gonna try again this year though!

I love eating, cooking, reading, embroidery, gardening.  I detest exercise but because I like to eat so much I have to do at least an hour a day.  Throw in some cake decorating and I keep myself pretty busy.  Thankfully I am a kept woman (hubby does the hard yakka).  Don't have a ton of money but have a great lifestyle.

I'm the best gardener in march and April. Come July in Baltimore, my garden looks like an overgrown junkyard! Lol. But I try every year too.

You just described my garden! Glad to know I'm not the only one! Lol My garden will be a lot smaller this year. I'm hoping that I'll take better care of it since it won't be quite so overwhelming!

You just described my life! Minus the embroidery; and I exercise 30 mins a day 5 days a week (I try for 5 days...). I have a love/hate relationship with exercise...

I am marry with a  seven year old daughter. I have a masters in HR Management and I work in my undergrad field in Mental Health Services as a social worker.

I don't have a lot of time for other hobbies but I enjoy knitting, crochet, sewing, cooking, painting, I have dreams of gardening but I don't have much of a yard right now. I tried to do tomatoes in a container last year but only got leaves!

Last year I dug up all my flower beds and replaced them with vegies and fruit trees.  I got much more pleasure out of it this way than I did with the flowers.  It's pretty bare now as the weather is too hot to plant much but come spring I will fill it up again.  It's not a huge garden but there is enough to keep me happy.

Um, there's life outside cake? icon_lol.gif Took up photography recently but I haven't really had time to focus on it. I guess my other hobbies are reading and 'interneting.' Cake Central counts right?

Yes, I should have added cake central in to my list as I spend so much time here.

I am a nationally certified personal trainer and that's my day job. I love to exercise outside of my 40 hour week also, I run 1/2 marathons and do triathlons (love to swim!). I have been married for 2 1/2 years and I love my husband and my little miniature dachshund (no kids yet!). My husband has just been accepted into a doctorate program and I'm so proud of him!

 

 

I love to decorate cakes but I just recently found out that I have a wheat allergy. So I have been re-working all of my recipes so I can eat them, it's kind of depressing, but fun at the same time!

Lately it's been cooking and reading this website.  I also used to be a heavy-duty knitter, but once I had a child, I stopped.

Norasmom, knitting is one of those wonderful things that you never forget how to do and can come back to.  I stopped knitting when my kids were about 5 and did very little for years on end.  Now I am back into it with a vengence and am finding it very relaxing.  No great need for heavy winter woolies where I live so I have joined a knitting group that knits for local charities.  I can knit whatever I like and all the wool is supplied.  I have been knitting beanies for the last year.  Some are plain, some are fancy, some are adult, some are baby.  All up a lot of warmer heads around the district.

My hobby is reading. Every chance I get I'm reading even if it's at red light : )

I had to cut down on the knitting and crochet because I ran out of things to do, there are only so many hats, blankets, scarves and booties you need! I have the same problem with cakes, I can't just make them all the time for us as we'd be even larger than we already are!

Baking in my hobby... though this year once spring arrives and the Farmer's Market Opens up I will be taking up canning and making jellies... I also bake all my dogs (I have three of them) cookies and ofcourse have a teenage boy to try and fill up.. So the kitchen is my life.

I was 16 when my grandmother taught me to crochet. I have crocheted many afghans, hats and kitchen things. I stop crocheting for a few years then go back to it. Now I spend time at CC reading and trying to learn. I also love to make cakes and most of all eat cakes.

Besides baking and decorating, I love to read (including audiobooks while I walk to work and in my car) and to sew.

Mine is reading. I love to grab a book and read for hours. I don't do it often but when I do I REALLY get into it. It freaks my boyfriend out that I will spend hours reading.

I tend to be "a counselor " to everyone I know....whether it be relationship advice, financial advice  or medical advice, I am on call with friends and family ALL the time. 

The caking is my passion.   It is what keeps me sane and brings me

joy.    My family takes up the rest of my time.   I am thankful to be a stay at home mom for the time being, but one day want to finish my teaching credential (I have my BA in music and history)  I would also love to learn to quilt.    

 

Perhaps one day I will figure out how to make money on my cakes too.....I tend to be too nice and overly generous.   Sigh.

I am an unemployed teacher and youth pastor. I have two daughters and I have been married 7 years. I love to bake, paint, draw, teach, READ!! and problem solve. I hate to exercise, but am on weight watchers, so I have to find ways to make it fun.

I love to read. I have a hard time putting down a good book. I wish I could garden but I kill plants that most people can't. My thumb is completely black without an ounce of green.
