This may sound weird... and perhaps it is. i'm icing my daughter's b-day cake and its past 2am. Everyone is asleep. I have my computer on to this site. It makes me feel like there's a bunch of people cheering me on and available to help me. I thought that my cake was going to be ruined because the icing on the sides did not look so good. I started to talk to my cake and I coached it on to perfectly smooth sides. Does anyone else talk to their cake?
Oh the other day at 3:00 am I was chanting..."Don't lean this time please, OH PLEASE Don't lean", then when I got through I said "Thank you for listening" lol
oh, YES, I do it all the time. I am a firm believer in coaching inanimate object to bend to me will. LOL!!
My family leaves me alone when they hear me muttering in the kitchen!
to the computer (usually yelling at it for being so mean)
to the air
to the furniture
to the food I'm cooking
to nothing in particular
(oh, no....have to run now...the people w/ the white coats are coming!)
sad to admit, but I too have that talking to my cakes. Especially at 2 in the morning. I even sometimes put down my piping bag, and just say to it, "please be nice to me, we want you to look your best you know" Then when it really looks like I may lose it, the bad words start to come out.
So chin up, smile, because if someone walks by while you are talking to your cake, it will make them think, "what is she up to now"?
Have a great day, and keep on talking!!!!
Well I have been known to yell at mine, LOL.
I'm like Doug also, I talk to everything!
I talk to my cakes all the time. And last week when I made my first batch of smbc, I was having a high-ho conversation with it, lol. I got to, so it will act right and ease my nerves.
I too talk my cakes, cookies, computer...
I'm talking to everything. Maybe the men in white coats will come get me after they take care of Doug
Of course I do!!!
Ahem i meant dont....
I also talk to my car
lol...I talk to my cakes too.
Maybe this is a sign we need to get out more?
I talk to myself and anything around me. The odd thing is that I will sometimes hold their end of the conversations for them. I'll often sing as well. I don't usually do it if there's anybody else in the room, though.
I'm with pootchi! I talk to everything. I have done stone carving and ceramics too and they seem to talk back to me! LOL. I gues they may take me soon!
only when its being naughty!
yup. Just this morning when I was making a pregnant belly cake......just as I was about to lay the fondat dress over the boob section I said "time to get you dressed, woman."
Am I weird?
I talk to my cakes all the time my DH thinks im crazy my kids have often come out to see who im talking to I talk to them just like there my babies.
You mean not everyone talks to their cakes? How odd. I know I do!
You mean there are people who DON'T talk to inanimate objects?
LOL you guys crack me up!!
I laughed at this topic at first! I mean I talk to people, and I talk to animals, *pshha* how silly to talk to inanimate objects!
THEN it hit me! And I think to myself "Oh duh, yeah you do it too dumb***!" (hits hand in middle of forehead)
The car has a name, my euphonium is named "Sousa", my baritone horn is "Giada"...and my poor mixer is hopefully only temporarily stuck with "Bertha"!
So indeed I guess I am "normal"...rut roh here come the guys in white lab coats and lithium ......
OMGoodness Yes i do! LOL I've been "afraid" to ask if yall did that too for fear yall would think I'm insane! LOL Glad I'm not the the only one who talks to their cake.
I can honestly say that I do not talk to my cakes...However, I'm usually too busy yelling at the kids Well, my mom is alot of times in the kitchen making bread at the same time so I've always got her to talk to unless I'm up late decorating. I don't think others are weird to do so but...yeah. I guess I just keep all the thoughts up inside my head.
hehehe you get a prize for being unique i guess!!!!
I talk to my cakes, myself, the wall, the icing, anything that won't get up and leave. I am also famous for trying to imagine a design in my head by sitting there with my eyes closed tight "drawing" in the air and talking to the cake to be.
