Baker makes bride ‘turd cake’

NOT SO SWEET: Maybe she was really a Bridezilla? Photo: clipart.com

A bride-to-be got a foul surprise, instead of a sweet treat, after a frustrated New Zealand baker sent a “turd cake” to her engagement party.

The baker said the bride’s family hadn’t been specific when ordering and asked only for a cake that was chocolate.

So the woman sent over a cake made to look like a pile of feces, with a flag planted on top that instructed the bride to eat a certain a something, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

The cake was in a box and not unwrapped until it was delivered to the party. Party goers, not surprisingly, reportedly lost their appetites.
