Mother of bride faces wedding cake woes

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. - Mother of the bride Linda Bocci is doing the legwork for her daughter's October wedding. Molly and her fianc live in Bend, so Linda is taking care of all the details in Lake Oswego.

In February, they found Wrightberry's Custom Cakes in Oregon City. They checked out reviews online, and had a great experience tasting cake at the bake shop. Linda and Molly designed a custom cake with a tree theme, and Linda put down a deposit and signed a contract. In May, she paid the full $400 for the cake.

Last Friday, a friend told Linda Wrightberry's had closed. She tried to call the store, but no one picks up, and the voicemail box is full. Emails to Wrightberry's bounce back as "undeliverable." The Oregon City storefront is closed, with no sign on the door, and almost nothing can be seen inside. A "For Lease" sign sits above the front door.

KATU tried to reach the owners of Wrightberry's, but could not speak with anyone associated with the business.

Linda has some time to find a new bakery, but isn't sure if anyone can pull off the custom design she and Molly worked so hard to create.

As soon as KATU News aired Linda's story, the newsroom got several phone calls from local bakers wanting to help. We've passed along their information, and will keep looking for answers from Wrightberry's.
