My DH made our daughters birthday cake. It was the 3rd time he's ever decorated. His fondant went on perfect! The whole cake was decorated in hardly any time.
It was funny watching him trying to place on the edible pearls around the sash on the waist. He has huge hands and wears a size 14 1/2 ring. He finally just asked if I had tweezers for this kind of thing. I couldn't help but smile watching these huge hands trying to place tiny pearls on a Barbie cake.

He was wondering what all of you talented CC people think of it. It's the pink Barbie cake in my photos.

I think your DH is a great cake decorator! I've seen all the cakes he's done and he really does have natural talent. The Barbie cake is really pretty!

ah what a wonderful hubby icon_smile.gif mine will help me decorate cakes too sometimes. last year he helped make the woodstock for his own snoopy on the dog house (christmas theme) cake; and our oldest son helped me make Snoopy.. it felt so nice having almost the entire family working on the cake

Thanks everyone. I'm emailing him the comments while he's at work. He said he's really happy right now and to tell you all thank you.

I agree with the others - very impressive.

I have to do my first Barbie cake early next month and hoping I can do it half as well!

Great job!

He used Michelle Fosters fondant. We still have some left and he wants to practice with it soon. I bought him a small lined roller for fondant last week. I plan on buying Mike's Amazing cakes DVD for his Christmas stocking this year. Maybe if I get him addicted I will be able to buy more cake stuff without worry. icon_lol.gif
