Edit-apparently I was typing at the same time as the OP! They want to come get it? Hooray! Problem solved!

That's good that they will come and get it....who the heck is celebrating a 1 yr old's birthday at midnight???????? Kinda weird, but who am I to judge? Could be a serious miracle baby and they are savoring every. single. moment. And no one can blame them for that!
And totally refund the delivery fee.
On the other hand, I would establish an order minimum, if you haven't already. I wouldn't have taken that one. Hopefully you made a decent amount on it to make it worth your time.
Are you the Cathy from Strongsville (Creative Cakes by Cathy)?
Bees Knees, I am that Cathy.
Nancy - I think your comparison is a little ridiculous. We're talking about cake, not saving lives.
They live in an apartment which means it may not be as simple as walking from my car to their door.
I do have a minimum order requirement and she met it.
As far as eating it at midnight...maybe that's a cultural thing? She had a very heavy Middle Eastern? maybe Indian? accent. So much so that I could barely understand her and all our communication has been through messages or I would have had to turn down the order because I couldn't figure out half of what she said in her initial voicemail.
I took her up on her offer to pick it up and then learned she planned to bring the baby with her . I'm not going to be responsible (or feel responsible) if gosh forbid that kid gets sick or something so my husband has offered to do the delivery for me.
i think op made a good responsible decision in creating a more acceptable way for her client to get their birthday order--
A strong cold front is moving in and temperatures are dropping quickly. It was 26 degrees at 4 a.m., but the National Weather Service is predicting it will be 8 degrees by 5 p.m. Weather concerns have resulted in delays and closings of area schools and other organizations. Go here to see a complete list from WKYC Channel 3. Cleveland City Schools are closed today, and the University of Akron already has canceled classes for today and Tuesday.
The front is causing very high winds, with sustained speeds of 45 mph and gusts up to 55 mph overnight. The Weather Service is warning that wind and snow could create blizzardlike conditions, creating very dangerous conditions for commuters. Downed power lines and accidents had closed sections of I-90 and I-271 early this morning. Drivers also are cautioned to be alert for blowing and drifting snow. Also, Cleveland residents were being asked to limit travel as crews continue to clear snow from city streets.
extreme weather conditions are not for everyone and cleveland authorities agree--didja see that chick's car fly off the bridge in minnesota somewhere this month--
Nancylee, if you had read my last post in its entirety you would see that I did NOT bail on the customer. I completed the order and it is going to be delivered.
