A young woman was “devastated” after receiving a cake that looked like a “children’s volcano school project” instead of the $230 dream cake she ordered for her 18th birthday party.
British Ellie had ordered the cake from a professional baker, but suspected something was wrong when she had to send her the design three times because the baker ‘didn’t remember’ what she wanted.
The finished product was “so bad” she couldn’t even eat it, it looked nothing like her order and was covered in “candle wax” icing and dead flowers.
The young woman ordered a simple and beautiful pink cake (pictured) for her eighteenth birthday, but she didn’t get what she wanted. The professional baker instead gave her this drippy mess on her big day
The young woman shared her nightmare cake with photos of the creation on a Facebook group.
“This was a professional baker and I had to send in the inspiration photo three times because they couldn’t remember what I had wanted,” she said.
She explained that she was “out of words” when she got the cake but has since been given a full refund.
Many members of the Facebook group said the cake (pictured) “looked like it had fallen” before being handed to the young woman
Members of the Facebook group couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the ‘failed’ cake.
“She definitely dropped the cake, picked it up and gave it to you,” one woman said.
“There’s no way the baker looked at this and said, ‘This is fine,'” said a surprised woman.
The cake was covered in flowers that look withered, and some commenters said the stems are not wrapped – meaning the cake is very dangerous if eaten
“Is that candle wax going down the sides?” asked one foodie, explaining that she had “never seen such a thick infusion.”
“Looks like they chewed gum and stuck it on the cake,” laughed another.
“The flowers die on purpose, so they don’t have to be part of that horror,” one horrified woman commented.
One woman said the cake “looks like it was baked in 1982.”
Another said it “looks like a volcano school project for kids.”
‘Cute. I still remember when I first got my first play-doh set,” one mom joked.
Is this the biggest cake fail yet?
A woman was shocked by what she received after ordering a cake from a local bakery for her boyfriend’s birthday.
The friend, from New York, was assured by the cake makers that they could make a lavish dessert using various chocolates, lollipops and mini bottles of whiskey that looked “exactly like” the photo she gave them.
However, she was stunned to see the sparsely decorated cake of M&Ms, “old” Hershey’s kisses, and chocolate-covered strawberries that her boyfriend doesn’t eat.

Previously, a disgruntled mom was paid $88 out of pocket after a baker messed up her son’s first birthday cake and made it look like a “spotted male appendage” instead of the dinosaur-inspired design she asked for.
The woman, from the US, asked a baker for a dinosaur-themed cake in the shape of the number one, but was given a dessert that looked nothing like her reference photo and was not refunded.
“What I got for my son’s first birthday versus what I asked for…they refused a refund because ‘it was her version of the cake,'” the disgruntled mom wrote in a Facebook post.

She had found a photo on social media of a green cake with dinosaur spots and spikes in the shape of a one, which she had given to the independent baker as a guide.
The woman also ordered 50 matching cupcakes, paying a total of USD$60 (AUD$88).
When she picked up the finished product, she said the cupcakes were “somewhat acceptable,” but the cake looked “broken” and barely resembled a “1.”
Although she was not happy with the cake and the refusal to refund, the mother laughed at the confusion and her post received hundreds of likes and comments.

“Her version doesn’t look very appropriate, tell them you’re not serving lochness wiener at your son’s party,” one parent laughed in the comments.
‘Exactly my thoughts. She knew that cake looked really dino-sausage when she sent it in,’ another agreed.
“I’m sorry, but this made LOL so hard. I would have called the police myself for making a penis-like cake for a 1-year-old,” a third joked.
‘I can’t believe that!! So, that’s her version of the #1??? That’s complete BS,” said a fourth.
“Well, we all know where her mind was!” said another.
