I was wondering if anyone else's family has given them a nickname, used only when cake decorating? Of course everyone is probably called "The Cake Lady" or something like that, except for Doug icon_biggrin.gif but apparantly I get a little cranky when I have lots of cakes to do, because my family has dubbed me, "The Cake Nazi." Geez, I didn't think I was that bad icon_lol.gif Anyway, I got to thinking that surely I'm not the only one with a "special" nickname..... How about you guys?

I don't have a nickname but my husband clears the family out of the home when I have to put a cake together. He knows I become evil!! But I can admit that. The last cake I made he had gotten a sitter for the kids for several hours on construction day while he was out of town. On the day the cake was to be delivered I realized my tip that I needed to finish the cake at the venue had gone through the disposal. I just had to run up to Michaels and didn't want to take my kids with me. When I called to find out if he'd be home before I had to deliver the cake and he said no I hung up on him.

Not so much when doing cakes, but as we are packing up for a catering, and I'm going over and over my lists .... .what I need, what's been packed, what's been loaded, what I need, what needs loaded, do I have everything, where's the water pans, do we have the silverware, etc..... they refer to it as "She's in Melt Down - Phase II".

OMG you should have seen me the day I lost my list!!!!!! icon_surprised.gif

I'm referred to as the kitchen Nazi. It's when I'm in the kitchen doing anything, not just cakes. Sometimes the dog even runs! I just hate people in my way when I'm trying to do something, but I really try to not be horrible about it. icon_redface.gif
I like Icing Beotch! That's funny.

I have this thing that I have to be completley by myself when I am baking and decorating. Don't know why but I have always been like that, this house has to be completley empty. Thank God kids are all grown and on their own and DH works.

I'm so relieved that others feel the need to be left alone while decorating--I just wish I could escape somewhere when I'm decorating, or that my darling family could just disappear....if they just wouldn't interrupt me, I wouldn't have to become the Cake Nazi on such a regular basis icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif!!

No nickname yet (I'm relatively new to this), but my DH has been pulling the kids away from asking me a million questions and all the "I'm hungry" comments telling them "let's leave mommy alone to play for a little bit" -- finally, I get to play and get paid for it! Of course, when he's not there, I just let them raid the pantry and get filled up with junk food! icon_smile.gif

DiannaSue & GenGen - I'm with you, love to have the peace and quiet of the house all to myself, Love wine, but actually save it for later, after the cake is done. I would lose all ambition!! icon_lol.gif

Since my kids are too young to give me a nick name, not to mention that I have trained them not to say mean things to people. icon_wink.gif I know my DH has names for me that he tell his friends, but I haven't heard them. I too have to be left alone, when I am baking and decorating. The drive me nuts when they hear the mixer and then they come running asking can we have the left over icing. icon_mad.gif That's when I call for there father to come and play with them. My kids are 4 and 8 so it doesn't take much to keep them busy.

How funny!!! My DH calls me betty crocker's granddaughter!!! At least when things are going well, otherwise he just stays clear of me and the house when I am working on my cakes.

One of the names my DH calls me rhymes with "witch" - LOL!

I'm not very pleasant if something goes wrong - he usually hides out somewhere and stays completely out of my way. Sometimes he'll come in and ask if my "other" personality has come out - he's afraid of my other personality icon_lol.gif

Well for me, it's simply "the cake lady"... my family and my neighbors from my old apartment building called me that(I think cause they couldn't remember my name icon_lol.gif ) It's cool, I may use that for a future business venture...

I haven't been doing this long enough to get negative names (in fun of course), but my husband does call me "Little Chef" after seeing Ratatouille (I'm 4'11").

I only get to bake and decorate after they are ALL in bed (husband included). Even then I get interrupted - baby waking up, dog needs to go out, dog needs to come in, dog need to go out....

I get the "Crazy Cake Lady" - because I can't just bring a sheet cake to a party it always has to be some 3D sculpted thing. It shocks people sometimes when they don't really know me and I offer to bring a cake and show up with a life size hockey player or bucket of "beer" - I get a kick out of that! LOL!

I also had one friend of mine call me Sugar Mama!

My daughter is completely into computer games, so I've been calling her a Gamer. Noticing that I have scads of books, videos, and spend all my time learning about cake, she calls me a Caker.
