2. Your kids hover for cake scraps and are excited even if there is no frosting on them.

The kid looks at someone else's tiered cake and loudly says "It doesn't look straight from here" as I shoo him out the door as fast as possible. He's 6yrs.

Your 2 year old knows what ganache is and asks for it regularly.

AYou visit friends and their dog won't stop molesting you because you always, always have the smell of cake about you.

AYou might be a caker if you find more support at CC from virtual strangers than from you own extended family.

-If your typical birthday cake is a 3 tier, torted, filled, ganached, fondant covered dream valued at more than all of your gifts combined.

 

-if the parents of the neighborhood kids are begging for an invitation just so they can get a piece of cake.

My daughter has been scouting out the perfect swim cake for her birthday in October for me to make her. It has to have water, lane ropes, flags and starting blocks.

 

My son brags to people that his mom made him a Phillies cake and when they think it was something small he starts telling all the details.

Oh no, that would have been very cute. I think that the cake she wants will be simple, it will just have a lot of little parts to put together.  I have it mapped out in my head, I just haven't sketched it out yet since it's a few months away.  After her birthday my son will reveal what he wants for his next cake...lol

If when you're at an event and offered a piece of cake, you first ask if your mom made it and if the answer is no, you politely decline.

What she said. AND your friends don't know exactly what ganache is, they just know it tastes really good so every time they come over they look at your mom all hurt if she gives them plain cake. And yes they KNOW that if they come to your house there'll be cake!

If you don't get fancy cake for your birthday, because Mum is sick of making them for everyone else.
