NORMAN, OKLA. - Richard and Amanda Gallardo can still taste the disappointment.
“They said it was a catastrophe and the cake was destroyed,” the groom said.
The cake is what everyone wants to see and eat!
The nuptials happened and so did the reception, but instead of the 6 tier cake, the bride and groom were forced to serve their guests an OU sheet cake from Sams club.
“It was white cake with blue edging, icing and it said ‘Go Sooners’ in baby blue,” Amanda said.
Sweet Sisters Bakery issued the newlyweds this refund check, but it was written so sloppy their bank wouldn't accept it.
A second bank agreed to cash the check and it bounced.
We know Sweet Sisters went belly up weeks before the Gallardo's wedding.
Their landlord tells the In Your Corner team the bakery's owners were rarely on time with their rent payment.
Two sisters ran the place.
We got their dad, Jerry, on the phone.
He was the one delivering the cake.
“On the way to the venue a car pulled out in front me,” he said. “When I hit the brakes your cake was destroyed.”
He refused to put us in touch with his daughters, but promised to meet Richard to hand over the cash, as long as we weren’t there.
We didn't mind waiting across the street.
An hour later the deal was done.
The bride and groom are relieved to have the cake fiasco behind them.
“I'm real happy and we can both go our separate ways,” Richard said.
We're told Sweet Sisters Bakery plans to honor all previous orders.
They've been running things out of a second kitchen.
