MIL says I have no talent...maybe I don't

post #1 of 127
Thread Starter 
My MIL says I have no talent in the cake department but says they taste good. icon_sad.gif Makes me sad that I thought I was getting somewhere with this but maybe not. She asked me to bring a Father's Day cake today to a dinner tonight but she probably won't like the looks of it either. I am posting it on here, but don't expect comments on it. It just hurts when someone says something like that to you. Especially when you think you try as hard as you can at something. I feel for my DH. How did he survive this woman while he was groing up. I try not to let her bother me but....it does. Sorry just a sob, feel sorry for myself story.

Thanks for reading and letting me put my feelings down on here so I don't take it out on DH

I agree your cake looks great! Sometimes you just have to consider the source, so what can you expect from a MIL!

Telling her to see if she can do it better is a great idea!

First of all your cake is awesome, those borders are wonderful and I am with Doug (green with envy)

Dont stop, if you love it....keep on going. I am not the best but I love it. Now that I have my wrist surgery I can start practicing and trying new things again myself and cant wait.

I have a wonderful mother in law and actually she is where I am learning some tricks, so if she ever said (not that she would) anything bad, it wouldnt work to hand her the bag, because she could do better! LOL

I think your cake looks great - I really want a slice! Don't give up just because she is hurtful - I'm sure you have plenty of others around you who think you do a great job. Listen to the postivie people in your life, not the negative ones!

This cake is great! Don't let her get you down. Some people feel so bad about THEMSELVES that they have to put other people down or talk about them in a mean way to make themselves feel better or justify their actions.

It looks great!

Your cakes are so cute, and you do a great job with them. That was really just a mean (and untrue) thing for her to say. I'm sorry she hurt you. I find it completely ironic that one minute she tells you that you have no talent and the next minute she is asking you to bring a cake. crazy! Just let it roll off you, and if I were you, I wouldn't bring her any more cakes after this.

icon_biggrin.gif Your cake is wonderful, beautiful lettering and borders....I would LOVE to have my borders that perfect!!!!!

I think you have my exMIL (one reason she is now EX!!!), because they sound the same....always nagging and running her mouth.....hard to ignore!!!

Please do not let this get you down, your cakes are great (MUCH better than mine) and I do not want you to stop! You have talent and you should share it....just not with her! Now I will be catty.......don't let her have cake icon_lol.gif

Interesting that she wants you to bring a cake when she doesn't think you have talent!!!!! YOU DO!!

Your cake looks great!

Maybe she is coming down on your CD skills because you are a good person who doesn't give her reason to complain about you personally so this is the only thing she could pounce on.....?

Anyway, take pride in yourself and smile!

I think your MIL is smoking something that's clouding her mind a lot. your cakes are beautiful and you definatley talented. don't let her or anyone else tell you otherwise.
