why are you holding the cake for her? She ordered a cake for today, she needs to pick up the cake today. Storing it is now HER problem since SHE forgot to tell you. It can sit in her freezer same as it can sit in yours and you use YOURS for YOUR family and YOUR business .... not as a free storage area for nit wit clients.

What Indy said. I would not serve the cake. I would make the planner pick it up and let her deal with the client. In fact, I would be calling my client to come get the cake. Does she even know what's going on? She is about to get a stale cake. Let her know her cake is ready, it will not be fresh, due to the planners error. You will be willing to make another one, so they have a fresh cake, but they will have to pay for another cake. That planner REALLY drop the ball and your client should know.
