Update at 8:15 a.m. April 16: In a smart PR move, Celebrity Café & Bakery has stepped up and offered to help those unhappy couples caught cakeless thanks to Romano's outta-nowhere closure yesterday.

The bride and groom are still out some dough in the deal, but it's better than nothing: "Celebrity Café and Bakery wants to help these couples by honoring 50 percent (up to $250) of lost deposits from Romano's toward a wedding cake from Celebrity."

Original item April 15: This is Very Big News in the world of Bridal Cakery: Every-local-food-award-winning Romano's near White Rock Lake unexpectedly shut its doors this morning, leaving many couples cakeless days before their coupling. Our food folk found out the hard way: A Dallas Morning News editor stopped by the Mockingbird Lane bakery this morning to pick up a cake for a photo shoot. Alas, it was closed. No sign, no warning, no nothing. And no one's around to answer the phone or explain what the what.

Our media partners at KXAS-Channel 5 were out there for the sudden adios; so to our very own Daisy Avalos, who ran into an outta-luck bride-to-be and the (former, apparently) employee who called all the brides to warn them their weddings were about to get frosted.  

And those cakes ain't cheap. But they are delicious, if memory serves, since Romano's apparently does not any more.
