Hi everyone,

 

I was active on here a couple of years ago and then took a really long break (made even longer due to illness), but I am back!

 

I am a hobbyist and am making two Bar/Bat Mitzvah cakes at the end of June, two birthday cakes in July, and my first wedding cake in August (well, not my first wedding cake, but my first BIG wedding cake).

 

It seems that it has gotten significantly quieter around here.  Maybe the cake-making trend of a few years ago has started to die down?

 

Wishing you all stable tiers and happy caking!

Probably more that people are too busy underpricing their cakes and/or going out of business to post on here :roll:

AIt is significantly quieter. Some of us felt like we were/are fighting a loosing battle and are tired if being called bullies &/or tired of regurgitating the same exact answer to pricing questions.

I don't want to say something for which I will get banned. But suffice it to say, the unicorn & rainbows brigade drove a lot of the smart, sensible people away.

C'mon tell the truth........ we all found a better place to hang out - and we built in a unicorn fence!

AThis thread is making me sad.

The vibe is somber now, it would seem. Where has everyone been driven off to?

It's not the where so much as the why. The past few months I've been thinking about this a lot. But Pam's right, there are other comfortable places where honesty is welcomed and good advice is shared.
