This is terrible! We had Celso’s as our baker as well. We are trying to gather up all the brides we know and file a complaint with one of news outlets so we can get our money back and not have our weddings ruined. I feel so bad about the other brides who were shafted! This is a shame! Thanks for the warning!

@ShipTheBear:  I totally feel for you and everyone affected by this, but I assure you – not having a cake will not ruin your wedding.

@Blanche:  That’s not the point – the point is that they’d paid for it and are now out their money.

I plan to sue them for my deposit money.  Its the principle of the matter.

If a company has gone out of business due to bankruptcy (which it sounds like that might be the case) suing them isn’t going to get you anything. You’d all just be listed as creditors in the bankruptcy proceeding and there’d be very little you can do about it.

However, if you paid by credit card, you can probably get your money back by filing a claim with your credit card company. If you paid by any other method, you’re probably screwed. (Unless the cake was part of the deal with the venue, then they still have to provide you with a cake.)

@Edelweiss:  Already searched bankruptcy filings, they have not filed anything.

@mrsrigsby60:

I have been theirs customer for years and they have been divorced for over 2 years what I know. Celso Rodriguez, the pastry chef and owner of Celso’s Cakes has vanished last week and no one can find him, who knows where he is. It was a small company of only 3 employees so they probably can’t run the business without him so looks like there was no option then close it. You can try to take the company to the court but if its incorporation he is protected by law, you will just waste your time and any additional $ for an attorney…

@SelinaGomez:  The registered agent on the business is Pavla Rodriquez, his (ex?) wife. If they haven’t been running their business properly as a they are supposed to as an incorporated business (which can happen when you have a small number of empployees), they will be reachable despite status as a corporation.  I can assure you that at least one person who has been screwed over by them IS an attorney
