      you and DH have got to set her straight once and for all....I know the issues you've had with her involve her "just trying to help" but clearly you DONT want it.
      You just got married and already she's sticking her nose where it doesnt belong. moms are weird about their sons. maybe this is her way of holding on to him bc now you are OFICIALLY the one he turns to for everything and you are taking her place in his life.
      yeah it's small stuff that's happened and she's not being evil, but if YOU feel that it's interfering then now is the time to put your foot down firmly and clearly bc it will only get worse, and then you'll blow up at her and you and DH will end up arguing over her!!
      Be strong about this!!!

          I would so pass it on to your hubby hahahaha. I would suggest having her make the grooms cake and for the AHR you want something big that a single oven probably wont handle. IDK I am sorry hun!!!

            Lol Lisa! Sorry for your MIL headaches! The grooms cake idea is definitely awesome! Another option would be just to tell her someone ordered a cake as a gift for you.. Or something... I know lying = bad bad but w/e at this point i think unless you tell her that her cake is a doodoopile I dont know if your going to be able to get her off your back.

              it's always something with MIL's, eh!

              i say get her to make the 'groom' cake...and then tell her someone else is getting you a cake as a gift. white lie if you have too.

              that or i seem to be using a lot of reverse psychology lately on family that i don't want to do things for our upcoming wedding. i say oh we'd much prefer if you just relax and enjoy the day, not having to stress out about making a cake, doing photography (whatever the issue is). that seems to work for most people...they get the hint.

                lol Linda, I thought about the whole "lying" thing, but it'll backfire on me, I just know it with her!

                I'm honestly really considering the groom cake thing. that way, it'll make her happy and then I can still get the yummy cake.

                I know this may sound silly, but i'm sad that I don't have a layer of my cake to eat on my first anniversary. That's a major factor in why I want a nice cake for the AHR!

                  alright quick update!

                  Ken said that we'll do what I want so getting a nice cake it is! He said he'll just tell his mom that we've taken care of it and not to worry!!! This makes Lisa VERY happy!!! lol

                  Now to decide on a cake and find a place to make one in 4 weeks....UGH!
