I baked a cake for my cousin's birthday. It took me about 12 hours of hard work. I tend to be a Facebook whore, so I took pictures of me buying the ingredients with my friend, decorating the cake, wrote down the recipe for some friends, and posted it in an album. I am clearly in most of the pictures.

Later, when the cake was being eaten, my family thanked my aunt for bringing the cake. My aunt said, "Oh, it was homemade." My aunt tried to take credit for the cake, while I am standing there fuming. Then, I got on my phone, and in front of 25 family members, walked around showing the album off. By the end everyone was looking at my aunt like she was crazy and me like I was a bitch for putting her on the spot.

If you have a huge problem with it, Op, then take pictures of you making the pies, put them in your phone, and show them to anyone who believes what your mother did. You might look crazy, but I hate when my hard work is credited to someone else, especially ungrateful, lying family members.

So, a credit on a pie is more important than a good relationship between your relative? Unless your aunt is an jackass like that all the time, I have to say you are just a very very small person without any generosity.
The only person you need to inform of the situation is your cousin, and I am pretty sure he/she knows it when you brought the cake to his/her house and wished him/her happy birthday. If you didn't do that, I really don't know why you were in that party and YDI.

Why does OP need to be humbled? OP made them, not his/her mom. The mom should have said, "Thank you but my son/daughter made them all and I'm really proud/impressed by him/her."

#5, alternatively, she could announce that they've run out of pies and oh-so-sweetly request her mom whip up some more in front of everyone and teach them her culinary skill. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
