I am the owner of a small bakery cafe and just received a phone call from someone whose daughter is getting married. She called for advice, not to hire my services but I was happy to help her out. Her daughter told the wedding hall owner that she wished to provide her own cake and he told her that her would have to charge her a thousand dollar fee and that it was a law! Are you kidding me? I told this lady that this guy was crazy and that he was ripping her off. I've heard of caterers charging a cake cutting fee but never heard a claim like this. FYI, this is New York State. Has anyone ever heard of someone trying a stunt like this?
