Woman Asks if She’s Wrong for Refusing to Make a Wedding Cake for Her Brother

Even if you’re close to someone, you should still pay them at least SOMETHING if they provide you with a service.

Especially if they’re making you a friggin’ wedding cake.

Do you agree?

Or am I acting like a crazy person?

AITA for not making my brother and his fiancée a wedding cake after they refused to pay me?

“I (25F) love to bake.

It’s a big passion of mine and something I love to do as a hobby in my free time. I have an Instagram account that I use to show off my work, which is mainly the cakes I bake and decorate. I make these cakes for family and friends for birthday’s or specials occasions (Christmas, Easter etc).

I never charge for these cakes, but am always compensated in some way by my family and friends. They’ll usually gift me money or a gift card to my favorite restaurants, or make me a dish in return as a thank you.

My younger brother (23M) and his fiancée (23F) were planning their wedding and asked me a few months in advance if I’d be able to make their cake for them? This would be my biggest order yet. They wanted a three layer cake (wedding was 75 people), in the flavor of strawberry shortcake as it’s their favorite.

I was hesitant at first but agreed to make the cake, under the condition that I was compensated for it. I explained to them that this was the biggest order I’ve never had, and was going to take up a lot of my time, labor and be costly. I gave them a VERY fair price for a cake of that caliber. They agreed. I also made it clear that I wanted to be paid before the wedding.

I provided them multiple sketches of what the cake would look like. Made a practice batch of the actually cake so that they could sample, and they loved the cake and approved of everything.

Fast forward to last week, 6 day’s before the wedding. I contacted my brother for my payment as I was going to get started on buying the rest of the ingredients for the cake (minus the strawberries I was going to do that closer to the date so they could be fresh).

He insured me he’d drop off my cheque the next day. Next day came, brother went MIA and no cheque arrived, so I tried to contact him again. Next day came, no cheque again. I offered to drive to their house and pick up the cheque, they made an excuse that is didn’t work with their schedules.

So the day before the wedding I contacted both my brother and his fiancée asking again. They blew up on me telling me that I’m a selfish b*tch for charging them when I don’t charge the rest of the family and that they refused to pay, but demanded me to make to cake. I said no, and explained my terms again.

They called me a selfish AH and said I better make the d**n cake. I again said no. So the day of the wedding I decided not to attend, due to the amount of disrespect they showed me. Well my brother, his fiancée and her family are now BLOWING up my phone sending me all kinds of nasty messages. My family are trying to stay out of it, but don’t think I should’ve screwed them like that. AITA for not making the cake after they refused to pay me?

INFO: I was charging them $400.”
