How many of you have supportive husbands? - Page 2

post #16 of 134
I've just started decorating, and so far, my husband has been a GEM. He's very supportive in anything I do, and this has been no exception to the rule.

When I'm getting frustrated because my hands hurt, he takes over and helps out to give me a rest. If I'm too tired to bake the cake, he'll do it for me (but I have to grease the pans, he HATES that part).

Most of all, he helps eat the cake!! I couldn't handle all this cake by myself. He likes it when I have to practice because that means cake and coffee on the couch together.

Up until I started the decorating I really didn't have a hobby and he has his computers, so this way it gives me something to occupy my time without him hearing "come spend time with me" icon_smile.gif

All in all, we're a good team and I'm happy to see that so many others have a good team mate on their side as well.

Hooray for the Hubbys!!!!

The other day we were having dinner with some friends and he told them that eventually he hopes for me to have my shop up and running and that he intends to run the shop with me. My jaw literally dropped to the ground. I knew he supported me through this whole thing and wanted me to serioulsy start going somewhere with it but never did I think he wanted to go through this with me. It just feels good that he believes in me enough to want that for me (for us).

My husband is great, too. Although he worries about the stress and pressure I put on myself when I decorate, he is the first one to compliment my work.

I've got a supportive boyfriend (hopefully, husband some day... icon_smile.gif ) The last cake I did he went with me to set up and took pictures while I worked. He also cut the dowel rods for me! LOVE him!

I do not have a husband at home. I'm living with oldest sister though and I have to say I am so spoiled! She is wonderful.

She does all my clean up after my classes. Cleans all the tips, bags, bowls and everything. She will wash my apron, towels and everything and pack them back up for my next class.

She brings me cake mixes, powdered sugar and Crisco and what ever else she finds when they are on sale so I don't run out.

She will bake cakes for me if I'm not going to be home. She will do whatever she can to help out.

That being said, she is all around wonderful. She does all the cleaning in the house. At times I will help by scrubbing the floor and so on but mostly she does it all. She does all my wash and irons everything. She does all the food shopping, brushes my dogs and brings me a glass of OJ every morning when I first get up. She is so NICE!

I've never met any other sister that does all that. I do however return the treatment to her and do tons of little things to make her life better and easier for her. The things she hates are things I don't mind at all. Like taking the dogs to the groomers, running errands, picking up dinner and so on. I have the easy stuff.

So it's not just wonderful husbands that help out. It's wonderful sisters too.

We just celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary and my hubby is still my best friend and my biggest supporter. He teases me about all the tools and books that I'm collecting but didn't hesitate to say yes when I wanted to go to Kerry Vincent's class in Jan. He's just the best.

Yes, I almost hesitated before starting this post, but so far so good. All these husbands deserve some credit!!! As I read through the posts, I know that there are lots of wonderful husbands out there, of course I'm biased when I say I married the best man on earth. From reading these posts, I'd have to say that many of you would say you married the best man on earth!!!! My husband also does help with the cleaning of the kitchen, eating the parts of the cake that get leveled off (chocolate is his favorite), and when I get frustrated and tired or I'm being too hard on myself, he's always there to help me along and keep my spirits up!! We really are truly blessed and fortunate! My love for my husband grows stronger with each passing day! He is truly my best friend!

Wow . . . I can tell you my sisters wouldn't do that for me! You are extremely lucky, as is she. Not many people have such supportive siblings!

I have never posted before, but when I saw this thread, I knew I had to respond! My husband is the best when it comes to my cakes! I just started taking orders for them recently, so we're pretty new at it! I tell him what the customer is looking for with design and colors and sits on his computer and designs a cake for me! He always does the construction of the cakes (dowel rods, helping with stacking) and covering in fondant when I need an extra pair of hands! When a customer comes to pick up a cake, he is right there, telling them how it has been put together and how it is to come apart, where the dowels and separators are. He puts up with my frustrations and runs out to the store on a moment's notice! He's alwys surprising me with new pans and things, telling me he's "investing" in the business! He even made up business cards for me. I always tell him he needs to put his name on the cards too! icon_biggrin.gif

When I was married my husband was a little too supportive and optimistic. He seemed to think that I was going to make us BAZillionaires. Whatever!!

I must say that I have one of the sweetest and supportive husbands ever! He has designed my dream kitchen (for when we win the lottery of course!!) and is the first to promote my cakes to his friends, family, neighbors, and anybody else he comes in contact with.
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

My hubby does all of the above, too! I think he enjoys the "extras" when I am done with experimenting or projects, and he is always talking to people at work about my latest inventions. And, our toddler enjoys my hobby, too, as she gets to share with my husband when they "taste-test".
