A bakery owner is unapologetic after sending a customer a turd-shaped cake with a note reading “Eat sh*t!” attached.
The cake was ordered for an engagement party. The customer didn’t originally want a chocolate flavored poo pile to celebrate her daughter’s marriage plans, but a dispute between Oh Cake owner Emma McDonald and her client left McDonald is a mischievous mood.
"I have no regrets at all about what I did. I feel she got what she deserved," she said. "I don't make cakes as a business. It is just a hobby and I'm taking it all with good humour."
After the customer picked up her cake, McDonald posted the following message on Facebook.
"Your (sic) left with a $30 voucher and 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."
After the client opened her cake at the party, she let McDonald know what she thought of the prank with a text message.
"We r (sic) just at my sister's engagement and got your cake, we and every1 else is absolutely disgusted,” she wrote.
The family had to order a second cake from another bakery.
"The cake was for an engagement party and this woman is not remorseful at all, which is disappointing," a family member said. "It was wrapped up in a box, so it was done deliberately as a nasty surprise. It was a disgraceful thing to do."
While the brash McDonald isn’t showing any remorse for her prank, the president of commerce of her town isn’t so pleased about the image her actions and attitude portray of Invercargill, New Zealand.
"People expect any business to treat its clients with respect," Sean Woodward said. "The cakemaker should have stopped and taken a breath or even gone on a holiday before doing this. What on earth was she thinking?”
