Call me what you will (I'm not seeing the connection between this and health inspections or copyright), but I stand by my decision and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I, myself, am sick to death of "rationalizers".
The bride was wrong to sign a contract with a baker who couldn't accommodate ALL of her requirements. The bride was wrong to even ASK you to collude with her to violate her signed contract. No one at her wedding would have DIED without having a piece of cake. Of course she was "appreciative"...........she was chuffed because she "got over" on the other baker
YOU were wrong to go along with the plot. You were wrong to have aided and abetted her.
You know full well that not every baker can accommodate gluten-free/nut free requests for a multitude of reasons, including not just liability but also for a genuine concern about the well-being of the allergic individual.
Every baker has a right to their own legal policies--no one forced the bride to sign that baker's contract. And no matter how indignant you were about those policies that hit too close to home, you should have said thanks, but no thanks.
Two wrongs don't make a right. Period.
