Here is my DH's very first attempt at cake decorating. It was for our daughter 8th birthday that was a Pokemon theme. I only made the cakes and BC. Jon did everything else. The stacking and doweling, carving and decorating. It's fondant with gumpaste pieces. The pictures are in my photos. What do you all think?
Wow Melissa, he did a great job! Told you so! I really hope that your daughter enjoyed her birthday and her cake.
Fabulous job! I see a new career in his future!
Good Job Jon (like I know him ) I am impressed. I don't think my husband would even know where to start.
Please let your DH know that he did a great job. His cake is so cute. Cakes can now be a family project.
Fabulous!!! I'm sure you're all super proud of him....another man in the ring! WOOO HOOO!
Wow! He did a wonderful job! I don't know that *I* could make one look that good.
Your DH did that cake? For real? He's better than me!
Some of your rockin' cake skills must have rubbed off on him!
Wonderful job! I know you are proud of him!!!! I wish my husband would just eat cake !!! I know he would never attempt to make one!
Congrats on the awesome job!
Melissa!!!! He did a FABULOUS job!!! My DD loves it and I bet your's did too.
Great job Jon & another one bites the dust!! Hope you will make many more.
Just checked it out and it's GREAT! It was so cute, it made me laugh out. Just looking at it - and knowing from my own experience how hard he probably worked on it - makes me smile.
You now have a partner and fellow CC addict! ...and more importan - with you both making it, your daughter knows how much she is loved.
Congratulations - great cake!
sorry - typo.
...and more importanT
Hi, this is Jon, thanks a lot everyone for your comments and encouragement, it was definitely a fun project!! Watching Melissa do all of her cakes and helping out with ideas and where I could with them got me interested to do it, but my daughter asking me to do it really got me ambitious. Honestly, if I ever get away from being a computer tech, this is what I'm gonna be into! I'm gonna be doing a Lightening McQueen cake for the youngest boy's birthday on the 10th, we'll see how that goes. Thanks again!!
LOOK OUT DUFF!
i wish i could do fondant that well......
Hey Jon, wonderful job!! I'm impressed with your work and tickled that you share your wifes interest in cakes and you're good at it! You've had a good teacher!! I'll be watching for the Lightning McQueen cake later on.
Thanks for the support everyone. He really did great with his very first cake so I can't wait for him to do more. I just hope that I still get to decorate at least once in a while
Good job on the cake buddy!
So there's a new partnership...
Great job Jon! I'll be watching for the Lightning McQueen cake.....I'm sure it will be fantastic as well!
