MABLETON, Ga. -- The Internet is alive this week with angry brides-to-be who say they've left deposit monies at a Norcross bakery that suddenly closed and left them empty handed.

Amy Lester is one of them.

Her fiancé, Michael Shaw, a Gwinnett County firefighter, had already handed over a $700 deposit for a wedding cake and was about to leave more.

"He went to drop off the check for the deposit for the cake stand and he found a sign that said sorry we are closed, so he starts panicking and I start panicking," said Amy Lester, the bride-to-be.

For Lester and Shaw, however, so far no money back and no cake.

With their wedding scheduled for early November, The Help Desk wasted no time in getting on this one.

The cake would be provided by Ella Jones and Cakes by Ella in Mableton who wanted to give the bride-in-distress a helping hand. 

"Help is what we do around here. I am quite sure I am your girl. We can help you in this situation you are in," Jones said.

We spoke to Ella over the weekend and she assured us she'd be ready when Lester arrived.

"Today we baked for you a butter pound cake with a butter cream icing, it's our favorite," she added.

"That is really good," Lester said after cutting and taking the first slice.

"Just time and place," Jones said, "and we will be able to provide a cake for you."

Lester and Ella mapped it all out and on November 10th, one hundred wedding guests will enjoy a four-tier cake with everything from red velvet to strawberry to chocolate, and of course, Ella's favorite-butter pound cake.

The Help Desk will be in attendance to show you the finished product.
