I hope that's the truth and not an exaggeration, since it's posted here and will probably be used against you (i.e., someone making sure the local sales tax authority has received their fair share, as well as Uncle Sam) - although, if you've done that many cakes, I don't understand why you would have so few photos of your own on your web pages and so many of cakes that were made by others...
And while I sympathize with the situation about your son, if the cakes were made, why didn't you have a friend or relative go to your house so that the cakes could be picked up? If it were me, I'd make sure those cakes went out. Not that I can't empathize - I've had two sons who were hospitalized myself (one almost died and had emergency brain surgery, and the other was hit by a car while crossing the street).
I'm sorry to be such a pain, but I really think your story is more than a bit suspect. You really need to keep in mind that everything you post here can also be used against you. If you say he was in the hospital and you have proof, I hope you do - because I have a feeling this is not going to go away simply because you give them their money back... you've cheesed a few too many people off and I think this is just the beginning.
