Mom is horrified to be presented with a botched unicorn cake with a VERY phallic-looking horn for her daughter’s fifth birthday party

  • Alexandra Schroeder spent months planning her daughter’s fifth birthday party before finally settling on hosting it at the Whipped Bakery in Lansing
  • Schroeder says she parted ways with as much as $370 to rent space at the bakery for the special event, and to have them bake her daughter a themed cake
  • The mother claims the bakery only provided the party with one table and six chairs for a party of three, reportedly informing the rest that they ‘could stand’
  • Schroeder was left gobsmacked as the cake resembled nothing like the unicorn confection promised, with a phallic-looking horn to boot
  • Things turned nasty when Schroeder shared pictures of the cake on Facebook, and the bakery hit back with a series of accusations of their own
  • When contacted for comment, Whipped Bakery refused and said instead the incident will be settled in court with a litigation

A disgruntled Michigan mother has hit out at a local bakery and the ’embarrassing’ – and rude looking – unicorn cake they made for her young daughter’s birthday.

Alexandra Schroeder spent months planning her daughter’s fifth birthday party before finally settling on hosting it at the Whipped Bakery in Lansing – which she claims turned out to be an unmitigated disaster.

Schroeder says she parted ways with as much as $370 to rent space at the bakery for the special event, and to have them bake her daughter a themed cake of her choice.

But it was when they arrived at the venue on the morning of the party that things allegedly took a turn for the worse.

Schroeder was left gobsmacked as the cake (above) resembled nothing like the unicorn confection promised, with a phallic horn to boot

The mother claims the bakery only provided the party with one table and six chairs for a party of three, reportedly informing the rest that they ‘could stand’.

Schroeder then asked to see the cake and was told it wasn’t finished.

Later, when it finally emerged from the kitchen, Schroeder was left gobsmacked, as the cake resembled nothing like the unicorn confection promised, with a phallic-looking horn to boot.

‘The horn came out in a shape that was so embarrassing,’ Schroeder told WILX. ‘It had finger prints on it and was not gold. I could tell that it had been handled.’

But things turned nasty when Schroeder shared pictures of the cake on Facebook voicing her disappointment, and the bakery hit back accusing her of leaving the premises in a mess and claiming she still has an outstanding balance.

‘Sorry you feel this way,’ the bakery responded on its official page. ‘We’ll make sure all future parties at our bakery have a contract signed to avoid this situation. Whenever the host would like to pay the remaining balance it would be appreciated.

‘Our bakery was left a mess. We’ve learned from this as well.’

She said it looked nothing like the cake they'd asked for

The bakery, which has since deleted its Facebook page, also posted pictured allegedly from the venue after Schroeder’s party left.

‘How NOT to clean up after your birthday party,’ their second post read. We won’t let one ruin it for everyone…We won’t allow our staff to be screamed at after asking for the remaining balance at the end of a party.

‘We’re glad everyone enjoyed our delicious cake, cupcakes, and shakes.’

In response, Schroeder said: ‘You’re not sorry clearly. I cleaned every surface and threw away all trash. Yes a contract would be nice so your customers can know how much or how little to expect from you and your bakery.

‘I paid my balance. I have receipts. You are so unbelievable.’

‘They are now slandering me saying that I have a balance owed and I’ve paid this bakery $370,’ she elaborated to WILX. ‘After the party the owner took it upon herself to preemptively block me from being able to leave a Facebook review’.

According to Alexandra she never asked for a refund, and instead wanted to share her poor experience with others.

When contacted for comment, Whipped Bakery refused and said instead the incident will be settled in court with a litigation.
