That was my point earlier, the vendor is the only one you can know for sure they are dealing with, find out from them if she cancelled their checks too. Also, if they dont know yet, then when they find out about your situation, then they might be able to check it out, and then maybe not hold the reception at all!! backfire city, she would not know what to do, and i wish you could be there to see her face, it would be priceless.

Oh that sucks... and because she confirmed I have no faith that she is innocent in this. If the wedding was called off she'd be calling people. I had a wedding get cancelled once. It was such a hard thing for the bride, and I felt horrible for her afte we talked and I told her I'd keep her deposit on file for a future cake (which I don't normally do). You could just hear the hurt in her voice.

I hope that your issue gets resolved ASAP. I require final payment 4 weeks before the event dat, and if it has to be after that point it has to be cash. It can take weeks for bounced checks to make it back to your account so I like to cover my ass well.

As I see it, you have two options. You can deliver the cake or not. I suspect that your options for recouping anything from her may vary depending on which course you take.

While the threat of not delivering the cake may give you more leverage beforehand, it may limit how much you can recoup in Small Claims. Whereas if you do deliver the cake to her, you've fulfilled your part of the contract in good faith and have every reason to expect full payment in Small Claims.

I don't know for sure, and the legalities are most likely different in different states. But I would definitely check it out before I decided what to do.

I'm so sorry this happened to you...I hope it is all a misunderstanding or there is some really, really, really good explanation for this. Please let us know what happens! Sending good vibes your way that everything works out for you in the end.

I'm only on page two --geez do we love the drama huh--so cut me some slack on this idea that popped into my brain--I probably would never do it but it's just a juicy day dream--what about if there was an appropriate courtyard or sidewalk area and the weather cooperated and you could see the cake set up just outside the reception or the ceremony where everyone would see it and have a little sign that says, y'know like 'cake for sale' half price (however much she's allegedly cheating you out of) or something pithy???

Have a "money tree" to defray the cost of the cake??!! icon_biggrin.gif

You know, I saw something like this on "Bridezillas". The bride had her mother call the florist a few days before the wedding and say it was cancelled when she found she couldn't afford to pay for the flowers. They were all special order. I don't remember what happened with that one. I'm so sorry this happened to you!

I don't think the second part sounds right. I don't know for sure as I am not a lawyer. However, I don't think a cake has to be delivered if someone stops payment on a check and has no way of paying when it is in the contract. The baker did make the cake so she did her part. It is totally the brides fault.

I just checked. The OP is in Arkansas, so it's only 12:15 there. The suspense is killing me too! icon_twisted.gif

icon_lol.gif this is like "the cakes of our lives" or "guiding cake" or even "all my cakes", but i too am watching like a hawk to see what happened. I really hope this works out for her, i think we all have our fingers crossed.

I'm only on page 4 so far but don't forget she is under contract to deliver the cake too ~~ contracts work both ways. ~~ you can't just screw someone because they are or seem to be screwing you.

Small claims court--maybe but op has plenty of time for big time pressure to be put on chicklette here.

That's brilliant with the whole conversation between her and her mother, the arm twisting to call and LIE for her presumably being videotaped for broadcast. Hope the vendor made that "Exhibit 1" in small claims court!

I love all the "cake for sale" recommendations and we're all having some fun with this. But, for a few reasons, I do think she should deliver the cake on the chance that it was a misunderstanding or that, even if it was a deliberate, even pre-meditated scheme, she'll find some family member or FUTURE family member in the parking lot willing to pay off the angry cake lady. Then it'll be a family issue and their problem to collect from this lady.
