I love the opportunity I have to create fun and beautiful cakes. It is a great outlet for my artistic talents. I have my own business through the internet for local delivery and have a LOT of freedom to do things the way I want to.
Dislikes- The occasional unreasonable customer (but you get that with any business.) I really hate what it is doing to my hands. They hurt really bad a night. Its like holding hot lava sometimes.
There are never-ending opportunities for improvement. Magazines, internet forums, TV, classes, your imagination... the new possibilities are endless.
The thing that keeps me at my job is the appreciation I get from people when the get their cake. The wide-eyed ooooohs and aaaaaahs are addictive.
