Ready to quit your job to pursue a career in cake? Take our quiz to find out if you have what it takes to be a full-time cake designer. For each question, answer true or false:
1/ I enjoy being covered in cake batter. 2/ I am willing to pull an all-nighter to finish a cake. 3/ Stress only makes me stronger.
4/ Weekends? Never heard of ’em.
5/ I am an artist, damn it!
6/ I fully subscribe to Murphy’s Law.
7/ Red (or blue, or green, or yellow) food coloring-stained hands are cool. 8/ I see no point in having a party if there is no cake.
9/ I relish the thought of fully surrendering artistic control.
10/ My Christmas Wish List: spatulas
If you answered true to all ten questions, you’re making the right move. Any less than that, you might want to rethink your decision. Just like any job, cake design can be stressful and feel more like work than play. It is a great medium, though, and a wonderful creative outlet. And when it comes down to it, I love what I do, any way you (ahem) slice it.
