I was looking for this reply-Yes ditto on this reply. I am determined to make my cakes a career and he keeps saying show me the money. Is it me or the better the cake gets the less impressed they are-Sorta like they are used to it! Or they will pick out a flaw! Anyway fifty fifty on this one! I am dragging him to OSSAS in October!

I cannot begin without saying that I would not have achieved what I have had it not been for my loving husband. He is incredibly supportive. He's seen my progress and is thrilled about it. He knows how much I love what I do and although I'm not making the big bucks just yet, he does not push me to go back to work at all.

I love his reactions to my cakes...He is in awe everytime. He thinks I get better with each cake...The next is always better than the one before it. He brags more about my work than I do. He is so very proud of me, I cannot believe it.

He is also my designated delivery assitant. Since I have a bad back and cannot carry the cakes, he's the one that helps me deliver and set up my cakes. He goes through the stress with me that one day, and in return I treat him for dinner. Last time was a $35 steak!

He's the best. He makes me strive to do more and get better. He's also got a trained eye for imperfections and helps me downplay them so that I don't get too stressed. He makes sure the cake is centered too! icon_biggrin.gif

I luv my man! icon_lol.gif

Mine is like, "can i help u?" or can i give u an advice ... he is very supportive, when he sees it's 1 am and i'm not finished he helps me ... he like any human being wishes i could spend more time with him than making cakes ... but he gives me all his support and that makes me feel so happy ...

Moydear77, I guess we're in the smaller boat here. On the "show me the money" issue, my money usually goes from the customer's hands into my gas tank without passing GO! My husband doesn't pick out flaws in my cakes. He still is impressed with all of them. For him it's mostly the mess. If there is a mess anywhere in the house of if I forgot to do something I was supposed to do, he blames it on the fact that I was making cakes. I don't mean to bash him because he doesn't want anything more than any other husband would want ... a clean and neat home.

Yes we are in the same boat here! It is not that he isn't impressed but just doesn't get giddy about cake. Yes I have had cake done before laundry lets say but it will get done eventually!
I truly believe that you can make money doing cakes-I am just trying to get from point A to B. It is frustrating that I cannot be 100% positive that this is what we both want. If I could make six figures digging trenches he probably would prefer I take the six figures over my dream job! HA HA!
Good to have validaition that I am not alone!

My husband is supportive, but I still can't make a cake when he's at home. He's all over it with what he calls constructive criticism! When he's finally stressed me out soo bad that I'm a nervous wreck he says, "don't worry about it so much, it's just a cake". Ugh! Lesson learned here is to only bake and decorate when he's at work! lol He has ambitions for me to have my own business someday, but honestly I think I've left that notion behind me. So in a way, he's more into me doing cakes than I am!

Godiva- I'm with you. My hubbie is my biggest fan in pretty much everything I do. (And vice versa!) Our two kids have learned from our example, too, so I get three times the support with my cake decorating addiction!!

My hubby loves my cakes and cuts me good strong cake boards all the time. He keeps asking when I am going to open my bakery! He is wonderfully supportive!

Sometimes...just sometimes...


I think he intentionally does this at my most stressed on a cake...
He'll come into the kitchen to refill his tea glass or grab a snack...and make some sort of comment like, "uh, it's doing something crazy over here on the back side. Did you see it???"

I just look up at him with the CRAAAAAAAAAAZY EYE. He starts laughin makes a little woop kind of sound and goes back upstairs.

Other than that...the man is there to support and assist...with board cutting...special stands...omw!!! and DELIVERIES!

I would love nothing more than to make it to OSSAS this year! If nothing more than to see the phenomenal cakes and sugar pieces.

DH put in his vacation 4 months ago so that we could go ...I got my fingers crossed.

My husband is quite supportive also. This is VERY helpful since I work full-time and we have an infant.
As a reward for his kindness and generosity, I try to do little things to make sure he knows how much I appreciate him. Sometimes I surprise him with breakfast during the week and make sure I tell him how wonderful he is.
It works most of the time!

Oh my OSSAS is the highlight of my year. I cut my own boards and I would never let him deliver a cake-he has no concept of slow around the corners! I am bringing out the big guns for Tulsa as it will be very tough compettion! And can we say Food Network will be there in full force!

My hubby is a great help with cutting the boards for me. Also just letting me be when I'm decorating. No questions, no talking!!! LOL Sometimes he'll wash up some of my equiptment if he's home at the time.

My husband is so supportive in all things I do. When it's time to do a cake, he makes sure the kids are out of the way and kept busy. He will also help with the hard stuff.....like mixing big batches of MMF (I don't have a KA) and it just kills my arms after a while. He's also great with making my cake boards. The only time he teases me is when he walks in and I'm this website AGAIN!
