While we’re on the topic of lost wages, can we talk about the fact that these two owe countless people money and they still have the balls to try and crowd source the funding for their new business? And you know, if there is one thing that the Pilsen community really needs it’s modern Mexican pastries made by two people who treat their employees like shit.
I get a lot of messages from former BHB employees looking to organize to either sue or just to touch base with each other. Unfortunately, since most of you want to remain anonymous, I can’t connect you to each other. I suggest that one of you start a Yahoo group, or a private group on Facebook, invite people you trust, and let them invite others.
Otherwise, consider contacting a non-profit such as Arise Chicago that helps workers recover wages that have been stolen from them.

Just clicked in my head I won’t be getting any taxes back more than likely from BHB. Working in hell for over a year was now completely not worth it. Knowing theyre back here and working really pisses me off too.
So does this mean you won’t be applying to work at Lucha Dulce?
I have a bunch of messages from former BHB employees who never got paid and customers who got ripped off. Well, these two are at it again, so maybe this will help you track them down.
Turns out all the bakeries must talk, I can’t seem to land a job at any of them because of Bleeding Heart and I was the best manager they had since I gave a crap. The last interview I had the owner said “I really didn’t want to to even call you for an interview because I saw you worked for BHB. I know all about Michelle and we all are hesistant to hire her workers.” Great, needless to say I busted my butt and still didn’t get the job. I feel like ive been blacklisted. Besides that Michelle works at the Four Seasons in Cali which is why it’s just Vinny doing Broken Sparrow. She knew her name was bullshit on anything, that people thought she was crazy. So she wants Vinny as the focus because hes the “nicer” one. I feel sorry for anyone who falls for this new shop and works there, I know what theyll go through.
We contacted BHB for our wedding cake and signed a contract with them. We gave them a deposit for the cake and changed our wedding date to May of 2013 and contacted them to give them this information. This was a month before all the emails saying they are closing and thanks for your support. blah blah blah. We left multiple emails and voice mails to the Stores, Vinny, Michelle, etc. with no response or anything. They ran off with our money!!! How does any one with any morals, screw someone over on their wedding!!!
I enjoy writing goofy jokes on Twitter, as goofy kids do. People rarely respond (or even read them), but then I posted this gem:
Needless to say, they took it to (bleeding) heart and launched this zinger:
Their cakeballs were good, though.
