A young woman was ‘devastated’ after receiving a cake that looked like ‘kids volcano school project’ instead of the $230 dream cake she ordered for her 18th birthday party.
The British woman, 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 ‘couldn’t remember’ what she wanted.
The final product was 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 pretty pink cake (pictured) for her eighteenth birthday, however she did not get what she wanted. The professional baker gave her this dripping mess on her big day instead
The young woman shared her nightmare cake to a Facebook group alongside photos of the creation.
‘This was a professional baker and I had to send in the inspiration picture three times as they couldn’t remember what I had wanted,’ she said.
She explained she had ‘no words’ when she got the cake, but has since gotten a full refund.
Many members of the Facebook group said the cake (pictured) ‘looked like it had been dropped’ before it was handed over to the young woman
Members of the Facebook group couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the ‘botched’ 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’,’ an astonished woman said.
The cake was covered in flowers that look withered, and some commenters said the stems are not wrapped – which means the cake is very dangerous if eaten
‘Is that candle wax going down the sides?’ one foodie asked, explaining she had ‘never seen a drip so thick.’
‘It looks like they chewed bubblegum and stuck it to the cake,’ another laughed.
‘The flowers are dying on purpose so they don’t have to be a part of that abomination,’ a horrified woman commented.
One woman said the cake ‘looks like it was baked in 1982.’
Another said it ‘looks like a kids volcano school project.’
‘Cute. I remember when first got my first play doh set too,’ a mum joked.
Is this the biggest cake fail yet?
A woman was been left shocked by what she received after ordering a cake from a nearby baker for her boyfriend’s birthday.
The girlfriend, from New York, was assured by the cakemakers they would be able to make a lavish dessert topped with various chocolates, lollies and mini bottles of whiskey that looked ‘exactly like’ the one in the photo she gave them.
However, she was stunned when she saw the sparsely-decorated cake with M&Ms, ‘stale’ Hershey’s kisses and chocolate-covered strawberries which her boyfriend doesn’t eat.

Previously a disgruntled mum was left $88 out of pocket after a baker botched her son’s first birthday cake and left it looking 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 handed a dessert that looked nothing like her reference picture and was refused a refund.
‘What I got for my son’s first birthday vs what I asked for… they refused a refund because ‘it was her version of the cake’,’ the disgruntled mother wrote in a Facebook post.

She had found a photo of a green cake with dinosaur spots and spikes in the shape of a one on social media which she gave to the independent baker as a guide.
The woman also ordered 50 matching cupcakes and paid USD$60 (AUD$88) altogether.
When she picked up the finished product she said the cupcakes were ‘somewhat acceptable’ but the cake looked ‘smashed’ and hardly resembled a ‘1’.
While she wasn’t happy with the cake and refund refusal, the mum got a good laugh out of the mix-up and her post drew in hundreds of likes and comments.

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