Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.

In my opinion, the cake supplier breached the contract by not providing you with what you had ordered. It was not like she only gave you 190 cupcakes instead of 200, her breach was severe.

You are therefore within your rights to refuse to pay her for her "services".
