The Law of Unintended Consequences says that actions always have unanticipated effects.
One unintended consequence of last year’s ban on cupcakes at school birthday celebrations may be felt tomorrow.
Great Cakes — the 30-year-old bakery near Bertucci’s — may close.
Rick Dickinson — who for 22 years has generously donated his cookies, sheet cakes and, yes, cupcakes, to any organization that asks — says that school cupcakes were 15% of his business.
His landlord has been very understanding, but business — always slow in the months between the holidays and Easter — is just too tough this year.
Tomorrow, Rick says, may be his last day.
