Ok I am so excited....my DH just called me while he was at work. He works for Dish Network...he is at a customers house right now and the customer was a Wilton instructor. She is in her early 60's and she has been doing this for over 30 years. She owns her own bakery. She had DH call me and ask me what I was having the most trouble with...my thing is roses, reverse shell, and basketweave. She was sending DH home with LOTS of supplies and books. He said she taught him how to do the rose while he was there..and he got it the 2nd time!!! She was so nice..I spoke with her on the phone. She asked to see some of my work.. I am not that good by any means, but she looked at one and was in awe because I have not had any classes. She said that if I wanted to do the courses, she had everything I needed right there at her home and she would teach me everything I need to know. THEN all her customers that live near me, she could refer them to me. I am soooo excited!!! She is showing hubby how to do reverse shell right now also!!! I told her that I have learned everything that I do know I got from here. She wanted the link..so I gave it to her. I just had to share this wonderful news with you..and now I am waiting by the door like a kid waiting on DH to get home!! LOL
(Gotta go back to the door now...lol)
It is so nice to hear that there are still people out there that are so nice and helpful!! I bet you are excited. Let us know what u get!
That is wonderful Beth!! Congrats!
..that is soo cool! ..and might I add..what a wonderful DH yu must have!!
Congratulations on your big coup!!!
Enjoy your one on one lessons...much better than classroom.
That is soooooo cool... Too cute that she's teaching your hubby how to do all these things. LOL...
Isn't nice to see that there are STILL people out there that are NOT intimidated by the up and comming talent?
They are secure enough to share what they know, and one better..to bring you up to HER customers standard so she can share the load?
How wonderful is this person??
And what wonderful thing you must've done to get this Heaven sent gift..lol!!
and let us know how it works out, you may be so busy that eventually YOU may have to do the same thing and pay this foward..lol
Great news. Congrats!!!
I am soo Happy for you !!!
You have met yourself someone special !!!
That is great! I just wonder if hubby is going to go back to work and tell all his coworkers what he learned on the job, too funny Just picturing my own hubby in that situation makes me laugh.
Very excited for you, keep us posted
My husband would have so been like "Yeah show me! I wanna be better than my wife!" LOL!
I say "Honey, I can't refuel a U-2Spyplane, so we're even"
MominSC; I agree with blittle6! Congratulations and remember what goes around comes around, something like "Pay it forward"! Have a great time learning new things, and best of all you'll have hubby to share with you!
I have to say that is great news. I think your cakes are beautiful....no one would ever know that you have not taken any classes. I am sure she will be able to teach you lots of new techniques.
wow MominSC. ..that is great. i wish that i had someone do that for me. Where in SC are you located...if you don't mind.
Well hubby made it home..and boy was I ever surprised. She gave him loads of stuff..and alot of yummy recipes. I wonder if it would be okay to post them here for you all? I bet you all would love some of them. She has an AWESOME recipe for icing. I tasted it and it was very yummy and easy to decorate with. Many of you may already have it or have used it but I would still love to share with you guys. Yes, my DH is so special. He tries his best to take part in what I do..even if he isn't really all that interested...but then he usually ends up liking it anyway...LOL If I learn anything that you guys haven't mentioned, I will be sure to post.

I am in Lexington..howdy neighbor!!!
please share some of the recipes....i too am new to decorating, and get most of my recipes from family, friends, etc. TIA
That would be great if you could share some of the recipes!!
I have tried to call her to see if I can share the recipes...but I have not gotten an answer nor a call back Do you think it would be ok just to post them here..I mean it's not like I am selling them?? TIA
I just don't think we can say it enough, THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS. You were due for a blessing.
What a wonderful thing to happen to you. I'm sure you were just chomping at the bit waiting for him to get home. I would have been pacing in front of the window waiting.
I always love new recipes! Please share.......
I love it when things like that happen ...it goves me hope that some day the wilton fairy will visit my house!!
Is your avitar a picture of your DH? it's hard to see him decorating a cake!
Well if Vin Deisal is her husband she is my idol! LOL
Well if Vin Deisal is her husband she is my idol! LOL
I second that one meme !!!
Hi all..I am still trying to get a hold of the lady with the recipes. Oh and BTW...didn't I tell you all that I was married to Vin. We have been married now for 7 years. Some say that my kids look just like him. And he does look quite sexy with an icing bag in his hand....
Beth...aka Mrs. Diesel
Beth does he wear that black tank top when decorating or JUST an apron !!!!!!!!
Well if the kids are awake, he wears the blank tank top...if they are asleep.....just the apron And I will leave the rest...unsaid
