post #61 of 1040
I think the fact she e-mailed to confirm everything makes it even worse.

Well? Heard anything yet?

I used to work in a bank and as a courtesy to our busines customers we always contacted them if an individual had put a "stop payment" on the check. This included the smallest of businesses to Kenny Kent's Auto Super Store.
I am also anxious to see what happened. But I agree with others, "No Cake For You!" or I'd cut it in half and give her that.
I hope to see you on Judge Judy's show sometime if this goes bad.

I am preparing to do my first wedding cake - have all the info to put in contract - have final payment due no later than 10 days prior to ceremony - maybe I should require cash payment at that time? let me know how this comes out with your bride! and it's only friday here too - what's with that?

Unbelievable! Good for you for stating that unless balance is paid..no cake! The time it took you to design, bake, etc on this cake..! What's wrong with people..I had something similar happen..very upsetting..

LOL, it is only Friday! My kids are on Spring Break and my dh is off today so I'm all confused.

That is why I make the total balance due two weeks before the wedding!! That way, I can cash their check and make sure I am covered on mt end!!

It doesn't sound like the wedding got called off. The bride talked to her cake decorator last night. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who immediately jumped to the conclusion that the bride had hoped the stop payment wouldn't get to the OP's notice until it was too late, thereby getting a really great cake at a really cheap price. I can console myself that I'm not the only one who has a poor opinion of the human race!

Well even if the wedding was called off I think payment in full for the cake should be required because this happened the day of the wedding...unless of course the contract stated otherwise.

When I got marrried in 03' the place I ordered my cake from made me sign a contract that if I cancelled 48 hours before delivery I would not be refunded any portion of my money; payment was due in full 30 days before the wedding.

I'm also leaning towards the bride being intentionally deceptive with this.

If the wedding was called off, I'd imagine she would just call the OP and let her know. Especially since they just talked the night before. They could then discuss the check, etc. Why just call to stop payment and not alert your vendors? You don't want her delivering a cake to a place where there's no wedding happening.

I'm glad you are not delivering this if you do not get payment. Most certainly CASH only at this point.

Man, I'd love to see the look on her face when she listened to your voice mail and realized you knew she stopped payment.

Keep us posted!

How about posting a copy of the stop payment request on the cake table?

This is just so awful of the bride. Definitely let us know what happens and to whom you donate the cake ('cause I'm pretty sure she ain't paying)

The idea of the empty plate is great, but I would even go one step further. If she doesn't pay in cash by noon, head to your courthouse and have her "served" with small claims summons at the wedding instead of cake. How evil am I icon_evil.gif

Thank goodness for your friend at the bank. If you end up with a lot of extra cake I would take her a big ol' piece as a BIG thank you.

Well, here's my two cents. I would load the cake in the car and take it to the venue. Approach someone in charge of the wedding, planner, mom, pop, sis, somebody and let them know the cake is here we need cash payment. That might put a fire under them to come up with the cash. That way just in case there is a misunderstanding and I don't think there is but for the benefit of the doubt. You might get your money and it would be over. If not keep on down the road to the nearest charity or your own church, drop off the cake, start your lawsuit come Monday morning. Don't forget the bride has a wishing well, bridal purse, mom has money in her bra and dad money in his sock. Go get it.
