Disgruntled baker sends 'poo cake' to engagement party

Hey. Chocolate is chocolate.

DUNNO, WE’D PROBABLY still eat it. Just don’t look at it for too long.

A woman who ordered a chocolate cake for her engagement party was upset when she opened the wrapping to reveal an unappetising cake shaped like human excrement.

Baker Emma McDonald posted a photo of the cake to her Facebook, with a caption complaining that the customer didn’t give her enough guidance in what she wanted from the cake.


Clients been f**cking me around and I’ve had a guts full so guess what they get! you want a cake still?? ok cool – give me some ideas?? – oh wait you have none apart from wanting chocolate, I have a brilliant idea for your cake!!!! – so here it is your turd cake! Hope you learn your lesson.

Poo recipient and bride-to-be Micaela Harris was mortified when she opened the cake in front of 100 people. Her sister, who was organising the cake for the engagement party, has angered McDonald during a disagreement over the value of a voucher she had for the shop.

McDonald told the New Zealand Herald that she had “no regrets” about baking the tasty turd.

I feel she got what she deserved. I don’t make cakes as a business. It is just a hobby and I’m taking it all with good humour.

However, not everyone thought it was a laugh, and there was a mixed reaction on the Oh Cakes Facebook page.

Do you deliver to Auckland? I want a poo cake for my birthday but with peanut butter m&m’s unstead of peanuts.
Poo Cake was a masterpiece.
You will always encounter difficult customers but better to refuse the business than be petty, particularly when you can never be sure of the final recipient!
Just a quick inquiry, what did you use to get the “corn” in the poop cake? The missus and I are really curios!
You go and poo all over a plate and serve it to a customer, and think it’s funny? What if anyone ate your poo, and got extremely ill from it?

Er, we’re sure it’s just chocolate…
