MOB or MOG making the wedding cake?? - Page 4

post #46 of 49
I think you should do it. Everyone talks about how stressful weddings are but why assume this will be a stressful occassion? My wedding was very stress free and I did all planning, most errands leading up to the day, made all decorations and arranged flowers in the week running up to the wedding. My mother was with me some of the time but I did not make her trail to the flower market with me at 5am the morning prior to the wedding!
I was stress free because the wedding and events leading up to it where timed with military precision and I managed to be sweet and kind to everyone along the way. I think we're all too used to hearing about bridezillas but I would hope that these girls are in the minority.

Surely you love baking and decorating? Now it may be stressful at times, running a cake business, so I appreciate the comments on here from professionals but please remember that the cake you create for your daughter will be made with love. I think you will enjoy the experience even more. If you plan it properly, do as much as possible in advance, the design can be as simple or complicated as your daughter likes and I am sure she will enjoy showing you off at her wedding. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

My son wanted me to do his wedding cake a few years back, knowing I was just a hobby baker, birthday cakes only pretty much. He DOES know I make awesome cakes and I think felt that he would be happy with what I would do.

I flew from Michigan to Virginia, cake pans and supplies in tow, and had the most wonderful time making a 3 tiered wedding cake for my son and soon-to-be DIL. I was there 3 days before the wedding so allowed myself plenty of time to do this for him.

It was truly a labor of love and I wouldn't want it any other way. I say....do it!

I say do it. Other people with no experience whatsoever have done this. And your cakes are great. It is probably just a matter of getting organized. I think I would more afraid of the delivery (I don't know how far you're traveling with it).

I remember this blogger who did it for her best friend. Her kitchen was back then a mere 24 square foot one. She lived in a tiny apartment in NYC. She had never stacked cakes and never made SMBC.
