My Daughter HATES her wedding cake!! - Page 2

post #16 of 114
The cake is beautiful...any chance she was having a stressed out day
and may change her mind?

I hope she appreciates all the hard work that you have put into making her cake perfect.

Good luck at the fair!!!

It's Just Gorgeous! Just like Doug said...you can still put this one into the fair....But would be nice to cut into a real cake....Although, I just finished a wedding cake and wish it were a dummy...it's kinda hot outside today. icon_smile.gif

That cake is gorgeous! A shoo-win at the fair. I love the colors!

Like others have said, she's stressing & taking it out on you. I'm sure she'll settle down. However, I think I would want a real cake at my reception, too. (Although, you could lacquer the whole thing & keep it forever!) Seriously, though, won't the fondant colors fade after a few days? Mine does, really bad! icon_redface.gif

she should be happy that you are even making her the cake!!! As a bride-to-be, i would love it if someone made my wedding cake for me (i'm making my own)...i'm assuming that b/c she is your daughter you aren't charging her for the cake, or charging her little to nothing for it...she should be grateful, not complaining about it. I think it look wonderful!!!
that would be my 160lb, loves to eat cake scraps, lick frosting off the floor, lay right where i need to stand, wants to play fetch right in the middle of doing a shell border, dog for my avatar...gotta love him!

Your cake is beautiful...did she give you something to go by for color matching? My daughter is using the same color combination for her wedding in three weeks...but she's VERY BRIDEZILLA SPECIFIC about colors, so I have color swatches to match chocolate and aqua!

i would still put it in the fair. the brown and teal aren't colors i'd immeditely choose but i will say that you did a stunning job with the entire cake; including the colors icon_smile.gif so please dont take any of that wrong icon_smile.gif its a wonderful cake and like others said you did a fantastic jaw dropping job icon_smile.gif

we can teach our kids things but a sense of taste doesn't always get passed on in our generations icon_wink.gif

just know in your heart you did well.. not well- fantastic and thats what counts. it hurts more because it is our children who say this but i'm sure eventually she'll come to her senses and appreciate the true meaning behind doing a cake for her.

I was suprised to read the title coming from you because I LOVE your work. The cake is beautiful! Your daughter probably is under lots of stress and is taking it out on you. Make her the other wedding cake and just go with the bridzilla on this one because your the Mom (unfortunatly right now) Just whip something out with a simple design and say--I'm sorry, I just didn't have the time considering you didn't like the other one icon_twisted.gif (don't even level the cake just slap it together---just kidding) I know your work is wonderful and you want to do something special but considering your time crunch now I probably woudn't.

Absolutely beautiful ! icon_eek.gif

Even if it is a dummy, you know I think that child of yours needs a simple prayer right about now. Lord please help her get it together. thumbs_up.gif

I like your cake and yes your daughter was rude to you but at the same time I can see her point of view, especially if she KNOWS that you're making the cake a dummy partly so it can be in the fair.

Well first of all I just want to say that I love your cake, it is beautiful! I think a dummy cake makes perfect sense, especially for Open house style, no one has to wait for the couple to cut the cake to eat cake! I made my sisters cake and made one tier real cake so they could do the traditional cutting of the cake, my sister was the one who wanted it that way and she very was happy about it. I am doing the same thing for a wedding cake in a couple of weeks for a friend of mine. I just thought I would let you know that I think a dummy cake makes sense and works great. Maybe your daughter just doesnt understand how it would work out. Or maybe you could just add another tier of real cake instead of one on the side, then it would be like she is cutting from the actual cake. I would really love to know how everything turns out!

I really think your daughter just needs to relax and realize this is a time for fun not for stressing! I remember how stressed I was for my wedding but then I realized I need to calm down and not worry about everything being perfect. After I realized that I was able to have fun and enjoy everything a lot more!

I have not read through each of these posts so this may have already been mentioned. But, did you and your daughter and her fiancee' sit down and discuss cakes, colors and designs? Or was this cake going to be a surprise for them using the color scheme they chose for the wedding? Your daughter could just be stressing and maybe she had something different in mind. But her reaction was one of a bratty little child, a young version of a Bridezilla. You all need to sit down and work this out so that everyone is happy, or if I were you I would walk away from doing any of the cakes and leave it up to the two of them to find a decorator who will do exactly what they want for the cake.

The cake is beautiful. One suggestion, don't know if its possible, but can you just do another tier, but put it on the bottom, then she can cut the cake and all, and you can still pull off the top layers for the fair.

Or you could make it a lady windermier(sp?) sytle, using real cake for the bottom and the fake for the top.

BTW: I really like the colors.

Thanks, everyone!!

a. Her dad and I are divorced (14 yrs. now) and he is not helping with the wedding! I'm doing it all!! I made over 200 invites and now I will make another cake! you are right, some of this is my fault for trying to be sensible and save myself time and money.

b. And we did not discuss the dummy cake option together. Fiance could care less. I just tried to match the colors in her invitation. Apparently, not successfully!

c. she is quite stressed (she's 24, moved into own place and wedding is Aug. 4th.

What bothered me the most was her approach. She could have said, " Gee, mom, I really appreciate the hard work that went into this but here is what I think..."! Instead it was just one complaint after another!!

I'm just going to get through the next 2 1/2 weeks and then take a vacation!!!
