My husband would make a great caker too, he picked up the Wilton rose on the first attempt, which infuriated me!

How lovely of you crazy-gray to make that wonderful cake for your wife!

I showed this thread and your cakes to my husband and he says,"I never thought that!" Lol, he certainly did, but I guess he just changed his mind icon_wink.gif

He is left handed, so it is really hard for me to show him things. I was thinking that I could pull the table out from the wall, and get across from him so it would be "mirrored" and easier to follow what I do.

He can smooth a cake pretty well, and torte, fill and stack, but we would really have to work on most decorating. He did go to art school, but it was 11 years before I met him, before he got sober, and he can't even remember it... It was 18 years ago, too. He has a natural art ability though and can see every mistake, which really helps so you don't give out cakes that look like a child made them icon_biggrin.gif I am sure he could be good, and progress faster than i did.

Crazy-Gray, I'm glad you liked my little saying. A man can cook/bake for me any time :)

Haha! This is so funny because my older brother could be a great decorator....if he wanted. He has whipped out a fondant rose in under 5 minutes (on a dare)  without me helping him any, granted it was more like a cabbage rose but I would almost have put in on one of my cakes. He is very useful when I'm figuring out a cake support structure because he's really good at building things, so I have an living, slightly responsive being that I can talk at to feel better about my support structure!!!icon_biggrin.gif
