Jack of all trades....master of none?

So a friend asked me to make a cake for a wedding reception/open house she is having at her house for some friends from church. I said yes, but now I am stressing. I know how to do a lot of things a little. I have tried a lot of hobbies because I would like to be more outwardly talented than I am, but quit quickly due to woeful inadequacy. I have big ideas in my brain but I have trouble making them come out my fingers. Before I was a nurse I worked at Tom Thumb in the bakery back when they made a lot of their stuff inhouse. I was never a fast cake decorator but I can do stock cakes well. However, the last few times I attempted wedding cakes they were not a good experience. Taste great but not strong enough to withstand the icing and I had huge land slides. So tomorrow I will try again. I should have baked the cakes today but I had to work and just didn't have it in me to start after work. It is always better to start fresh in the morning. I am not exactly an early bird but I am certainly not a night owl. In fact I am leaving this entry to hit the hay.
But my question of the day is what motivates you to say yes, when you want to say no??!
