Thanks so much for all the positive feedback everyone! This gives me more confidence to price the way I feel we should for his talent.
You're right, Apti. I am a bit shy about being new and working out of my home. I'll just need to work on gettting past it :/
I hope you're right Enga about us getting clients after the expo! Fingers crossed!
Annabakescakes - I've heard that story before. Thanks for posting it. It sums up some discussions my husband and I have had about art.
I will pass on all of your kind words to my husband. He's been a little nervous about showing his work publicly. I tell him all the time how amazing he is, but I'm sure there's part of him that thinks I'm just being nice because I'm his wife. Hearing it from strangers, especially other artists, should go a long way.

That is amazing work!! Up there with the best I've seen.

 

Make sure the inside of your cakes taste as great as the outsides look. That will be just as important.

Thanks so much everyone!

 

raniafayed: Thank you! My husband used edible pens for most of the koi and americolor gels mixed with vodka for everything else.

 

liz at sugar: Thank you! The expo went fantastic! I got a lot of great feedback, a handful of brides wrote their names in my book to be contacted, and I've given out a handful of requested quotes. The most important thing I think is that I made some great vendor contacts. One florist put me on her website as a preferred vendor - and I'm the only cake artist on her list. One photographer contacted me recently saying she recommended me to a bride. Several other vendors said they'd put me on their preferred vendors list as well.

 

Stitches: Thank you! I got rave reviews on my samples from the expo. A few other vendors I made friends with told me later that they heard brides say that my samples were delicious, so they weren't just being polite to my face :)
