no not at all--we are all agreeing here

 

it's that well-intentioned people inadvertently push someone with a passion/skill/talent to market it

 

clearly i started getting silly -- but that was to illustrate our so helpful friends/family who push us to market to market  

 

when taking it to market is an apple orchard on rolling acres

 

and we are simply making a great glass of orange juice

 

two mighty different things--worlds apart

 

i said it for contrast to help you see it better and to deflect it

 

so you could see another angle to 'why do i feel compelled to do this'

Diviana, I certainly wasn't trying to  poke fun at you, more responding the the tangent the thread took on starting a business out of caking.  I think you are right on for looking at getting a job decorating to get your practice rather than making an immediate small business out of it.  So many people think they are making money at their hobby but really haven't figured their real costs so the income is an illusion.  I think working at any other bakery is a great way to get more experience in decorating and time management and sanitation, etc, etc.

Hi Diana,

You can also try looking for a job on Indeed.com. It's a free service for finding jobs in your area. I use it to search for bakery and pastry positions. I receive an email every day if new jobs are posted in my area, but you can also just check the website whenever you want updates too.

Good luck!

Robyn
