Oh Cakes… Oh My!
From the Metro 06/01/14:
A woman was sent a cake that resembled human faeces with the words ‘eat s**t’ written on it after a dispute with the baker.
Charming. It must have been quite some dispute.
Micaela Harris was left embarrassed, and her nieces upset, when she pulled off some ‘magnificent’ wrapping paper to reveal the rude looking creation at her engagement party in New Zealand.
Still, I’m sure nobody present will ever forget it. It’s not every engagement party that gives its guests the chance to munch on a turd-styled cake!
Thank God Oh Cakes were not supplying the wedding cake as well.
The poo cake was retaliation against her sister who had had a disagreement with Oh Cakes owner Emma McDonald when organising the gift.
[Harris said] ‘I think it [the disagreement] was taken too far.’
‘As a business owner you come across customers you don’t like but you have got to take the highs and the lows, got to suck it up.’
Given the style of the cake, I’d say that was an unfortunate choice of phrase!
McDonald seemed unrepentant after the incident and even posted news stories about the cake on her Facebook page.
She wrote: ‘Nothing really negative that I’ve seen apart from a few who didn’t read and understand it properly.
‘Seems to be
poopingpopping up everywhere… business opportunities have been thrown my way as well.’
Heck, maybe there’s demand out there for shit-styled cakes. After all, you can’t exactly pop into Marks and Spencers for one, can you?
I wonder what it tasted like! I mean – it looks chocolaty, right?
