So we've all heard of (or experienced) hang-overs.... what about "cake-overs"? Where you've had just a little too much bites of cake scraps, icing, chocolate, cake balls,etc..... what do you do then? I've eaten crackers before.... but it's not working this time! LOL! So what do you do? Or does everyone else just have better will power than me?

I heard a story once about a candy shop who told all of it's new employees "you're welcome to eat as much of the candy as you want!" ..... because they knew that after about a week or so, they wouldn't have to worry about the employees eating the inventory!!

Maybe your week isn't up yet! icon_lol.gif But the last thing that goes in my mouth anymore is cake or icing! I got thru my week's orientation a long time ago! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

Try chewing gum. I keep meaning to try it, but dang I love icing!

I don't have any suggestions to get you feeling better right now... but I have been there done that. I am with indydebi. You'll get over your stuff pretty quickly! I rarely eat my own cake, and if I do it is just a couple of bites.... now cookies on the other hand... if there are PB cookies then I have to make an extra batch just for me!

Gum is a good thing also. It helped me quite a bit to stop licking everything. Try bubble gum flavor mixed with sweet sweet BC icing (UGH!!)

I just skip a few meals LOL. Or go for a nice long walk (if the weather isn't great it makes a great excuse to hit the mall!)

Try some Listerine. Nothing is appetizing after a nice swish of that! I used to keep a bottle of it in my desk when I was new in the restaurant biz, back when the food was still appetizing. I am with the other posters, though, about it no longer appealing to you after a while. Now, the only thing that really gets me is brownies.

I used to eat lollipops, but that was when I started decorating at age 13. Now, I guess I am a reformed icing eater.

"My name is Patricia and I have been icing free for 20yrs!!" And yes, I did go to icing anonymous meetings.

If I make the icing, I have no desire to eat it. Something about eating pure butter or crisco....
