Odd Job Fun!

I'm starting with these few items first as I have a lot of other listings in the works.  This blog is all about finding fun stuff to do for extra spending money, so here's one of the things that I love to do!!


etch a sketch


Meat Cake!

rocket (actual cake)



rice crispie alien

5 year old presents


Lego Indiana Jones with WII remotes

I started with this Lego one for my son and then moved on from there.  Several of my friends started requesting cakes for their kids and I have been having a blast with it since then.  I framed my first $20 bill instead of spending it.  Even gave my kitchen a bakery name (patent pending!)  SO, this is my first odd job listing.  This is something I love doing.  From my friends, I don't like taking money, but, they threw it at me, so, I'm not complaining!  It's a little "me" money! 
When you find something that you love and then you can make some "cha-ching" off of it - start marketing yourself!  I went to MAMAPEDIA and listed myself locally as a cake maker!  Haven't received any calls off of it yet, but, you never know!  I know word of mouth is a big deal - it's how my next Odd Job listing got me a position that I hope to keep for years to come!  The 5 year old birthday presents cakes got me an instant order from the party.  I especially loved that the woman requested my chocolate cake (my new favorite homemade recipe)
Hey!  If you live near central LONG ISLAND or know someone who does and want a specialty cake,  you can let me know right here and we'll get in touch.  I have tons of ideas and cake forms and time.  Give me a chance and I'll give you a memory.
Happy Friday Everyone and thanks for reading!

My favorite is your "etch-a-sketch" cake. I thoroughly love your passion and you are so correct when you say, "When you find something that you love and then you can make some "cha-ching" off of it - start marketing yourself!"

Best wishes to you and may you have a very successful year! ..... Nancy

Your cakes are cute. I make all my kids cakes for their birthdays since they have food allergies. New follower from the hop.
