Hi everyone,
I had a really odd dream last night and I had to share it.
It started with a woman calling me for a cake. She said she wanted a cake about 11x15 and it should serve between 15-40 people (like that's normal??) in the design of a football field with all handmade gumpaste zoo animals. She wanted it to look like the animals were playing the game. The weird this is that she insisted that she would pay no more than $30 for it. Now for my area $30 for that size cake with that much work would be impossible. I didn't want to argue with her because I was afraid to lose a customer.
Then one of my dad's friends called and said that he wanted a cheesecake....just a cheesecake...no design, no icing...just cheesecake. Thought this was a little odd as well.
Fortunately I woke up and didn't have to make the $30 cake!!!
Any other odd dreams from the cake pressure??

Funny! I dreamt about cake decorating last night too! I had a wedding cake, my sons birthday (he'll be 2) due in August (true in real life as well) plus my job. (I also have another set of classes to teach in August in real life plus the cakes, a BBQ for my sons birthday, the wedding, and my job) On top of that in my dream, I was late for my cake decorating job in the bakery! My husband, son, and 5 yr. old daughter (who is bugging me in real life about what cake she wants for her birthday in Oct.) kept trying to come to me through the bedroom door, while I'm trying to get out of the room so I can get to work! Very crazy feel to the whole thing. The funniest thing to me is that the 3 yr. old (who constantly takes my cake decorating books and magazines to flip through) didn't bug me one bit, although she was waiting patiently for me in the hall. I think it may be getting to me.

you know i can say that i've never had any dreams of cakes, customers, or anything to that affect. icon_confused.gificon_confused.gif sounds like you are under a bit of pressure of some sort. icon_surprised.gif

When I get an order for a cake (In real life), usually that night I will dream that I am running out of time, that they are about to come pick up the cake, and I am freaking out cause I can't figure out how to decorate it. Then I always wake up and can't go back to sleep cause I really do start thinking about how Im going to decorate it.

I need help! shhh.gif
