I ordered 40 cupcakes for a party. Asked to rent their cupcake tree to display them on ($50) and an extra $25 as a deposit. They gave me the tree tied up in a plastic bag. When I got it home it still was dirty from it's previous use. When putting the cupcakes on it, it broke in half. It had never been cleaned or examined before "renting" it to me. When I returned it I asked for the $75 back and was told by the owner, Mark, that I had the tree out of his shop for 24 hrs.....therefore the rental fee. I brought it back broken....therefore I had to forfeit the deposit as well. Incredulously, I asked, "you mean I just paid you $140 for 40 cupcakes that i served on a plate??" His reply was: "Well your guests liked them, didn't they?" He chose the wrong person to do this to as I am a local and have frequented his store. No more. Very unethical. Also very rude and condescending. No more Cottage Street Bakery for me!!!!
