What I find disturbing is your mother inviting guests she knows you don't want attending. It's YOUR wedding. Why isn't she respecting your wishes?
Parental interference in uninvited ways is a primary reason couples elope, and it shouldn't be that way.
Perhaps you should sit down with your mother and ask her to please invite the people you've indicated you wish to have there, and nobody else. You have your reasons for your choices, and those choices should be honored.
As for the cake place -- sounds like they don't want to do anything for you. It also sounds like they can't get their stories straight. The owner sounds like an arrogant, uppity snob. And a greedy one, at that ($50 for doing no more than giving a quote -- IF she happens to feel like it!)
I would definitely take my business elsewhere. They don't deserve a dime from you.20 gal. high: planted; 8 white cloud minnows, 10 RCS, 2 blue shrimp, several snails; AC50, Azoo air. 65 gal: planted; 7 rosy barbs, 6 glofish,, 2 zebra danios, 6 rosy red (fathead) minnows, 3 dojo loaches, several snails; AC110 x 2.

The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

the others are ones we hardly ever see. and when we do they want something. money or babysitting services for free.
then she invited her friends who not only do i not like. my so doesn't like either. she even invited some without asking to lunch while were out looking at venues. 2 are rude. and snobbish. the others i like. one's daughter though is super rude to me and is probably going to be brought as a guest.
then you have the employees she invited. (family owned business.) some of these people yes we have known since the start of even moving here. which as co-workers fine whatever. but i don't want them at my wedding because they are rude to me at work. just because they are older than me think they can boss me around or don't have to listen to me and i know nothing. and since i'm the bosses daughter if they f-something up or don't do something they can blame me and my brother for it and think we don't get in trouble instead of claiming responsibility for it themselves. and we get yelled at worse. so i don't want them there. but my mom says we have to or else there will be hard feelings. one of which i tried to use the excuse well i wasn't invited her daughters wedding why do i have to invite her to mine? didn't work.
my biggest peeve currently with mom though is convincing her i don't want anything potato at my wedding receptions because i don't want to risk an allergy attack from cross contamination at my wedding. but she thinks people will starve if i don't. :/ and i'm making sure no one else's allergies are an issue including hers. but mine can't be taken into consideration.

If she really wants something mashed they could do mashed califlower.
I am so glad my mom let me make a lot of those choices myself. What we did was invite a few to the ceremony, a few more to the dinner, and then basically anyone that wanted to come could come to the dance part of the reception (dont have to talk to people then because it is loud).
Hope you can work things out .

You can't please everyone...ever.
It's your wedding. Try the mashed cauliflower if you want. Who knows? 'They' might actually like it if they taste it.
And if they don't like it? Tough. They won't starve...it's really hard to starve...takes weeks...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed
