I have wanted to do my own cake for my wedding since like forever! and now shes telling me that maybe i shouldnt do it, because it will be too much stress and because i "cant do it" she says. She was like "maybe you should just do the shower cake, and then we'll see from there, and then get someone else to do it last minute!" Like honestly leave me alone about the cake! you do all the financial stuff get my da*n dress and call it a f**king day!!!!! I am sooo freaking mad right now i cant even stand it! I just dont understand why she wont leave me alone about it and lemme do what I want for MY wedding.

Im doing my own bouquet too i dont even f**king care what she says about that NO ONE ELSE IS TOUCHING MY BOUQUET BESIDES ME!!!! -.-''

I am sorry she is giving you such a hard time. It is very had to have someone else try and take over when you have very definite ideas about what you want and how you want it done (especially when that person is insulting you in the process.) Stick to your guns, because you will regret it if you don't. I am sure your cake will be gorgeous and you will feel so accomplished doing it yourself.

she probably feels entitled if she's contributing financially. that being said, you'll have to remind her gently that it's your wedding, not hers.

Maybe she's just thinking about how CRAZY the last couple of days before the wedding can be with all the stuff that has to wait until the last minute, and doesn't want you to get too stressed out?

I agree maybe she is worried that you will be too stressed during the last few days before the wedding. But if you think you can do it then go for it, it is YOUR wedding!!!

I'm sure she means well but she should definitely let you do what you want for your wedding.

If you are confident in your abilities to decorate cakes, then do it. I used to decorate cakes too. I think you would regret it everytime you look at your wedding pictures. You can make it a couple of days in advance and if you freeze the cakes and ice them frozen, they will get the good crust on the icing and the cake will stay moist. even if you do mess up and aren't happy with it, have a back up plan cuz you can always cancel an order. It is harder to place a last minute order.

That's what I was thinking as well. The few days leading up to a wedding can be stressful enough as it is. I can't imagine trying to do my own cake (which is a huge task) and my own bouquet on top of everything else!

If you think you can handle the stress of doing the cake and everything else that's involved in a wedding, then by all means, you should be able to.

I know I was so stressed out I should have been medicated before my wedding- but if you are calm enough to get it done- go for it! Personal touches make the day more special. Can't wait to see pictures!

Awe, big lady!!

Planning a wedding can be so stressful. Mommies think they know best but sometimes they just go too far. Try not to let your Mom get to you. I'm sure she loves you and wants you to have a perfect day.

It's also YOUR day and you should do what makes YOU happy. Your Mom and anyone else will get over it.

and again....try not to let it get to you. It's not worth the stress and the stress isn't good for baby.

I think it is awesome that you want to make your own cake! I think if you feel up to it, GO FOR IT! I want to see pictures of it! i wish I could decorate a cake. I can bake them, but have no talent decorating them.
