Woman Distraught After Ordering $65 Cake That Looks Like It Was 'Made by a Child' | 22 Words

You just can't have a birthday without cake. And when you go to the effort of ordering a customized cake for someone's special day, you expect it to be perfect.

Sadly, one woman got a fright when she opened the cake box. And she's not alone, here are some of the biggest cake fails the internet has ever seen...

 

The best-laid plans, ya know? Although, I do have to wonder whether these plans really were "best-laid." Were they planning for the cake to just say "BIRTH"?
I like to imagine the cake decorator understood exactly what was being requested of them and decided to just do this anyway. Seems like the most appropriate way to ring in your thirtieth year.
This cake decorator, on the other hand, was probably very confused. Steve's a good name, though. If I had to be surprised with a new name, I might also choose Steve.
This Thanksgiving, don't forget to share with everyone how thankful you are that you live in a world in which someone could try to make a turkey out of frosting and fail this bad.
To be fair, Chip has really seen some stuff throughout his life. I mean, he was literally transformed from a young boy into a broken teacup. If you ask me, the look of horror seen here is much more accurate than anything in the movie.
So close, and yet so far. Actually, scratch that. This is just "so far."
This cake actually showed some real promise before someone decided to write the word "Congratulations" on it. There's probably some kind of lesson there.
If I were the baby on the receiving end of this cake, I think I would immediately try to leave the welcome party and go back to wherever I came from.
I would like to meet the person responsible for this masterpiece and shake their hand. That's a level of "I literally couldn't care less" that I would love to achieve someday.
First, you want sprinkles, next thing you know you want a job that pays a living wage, then you think you're entitled to an economy that wasn't decimated by the generations before you. Geez. Millennials, amiright?
Sure, this is a harsh message to receive. But at least there's cake to soften the blow.
Sure, this is silly. That being said, if my school had given me the option of wearing a cat on my head instead of a cap, I absolutely would have taken them up on that.
There's no beating around the bush with this one. You got older. You get a cake for doing so. Let's all move on.
Remember when I said cake was the perfect snack for a doctor's appointment? I guess this is what I meant.
The newest iPhone has so many amazing new features. Apparently, it can even send you cake!
If you ever donate your kidney, you should insist on getting a cake exactly like this one. It's only fair.
Everybody always makes such a big deal about wedding cakes, by why aren't there more divorce cakes in the world? I sense a business opportunity.
Either this was a "Happy Father's Day!" cake, or someone is trying to send you a very specific message and chose cake as their method of communication. I wouldn't worry about it until after you've finished your dessert, though.
Now that we have technology that allows us to put pretty much anything on a cake, it'd be irresponsible of humanity as a whole if someone didn't use it to do something like this.
This cake was made for a Google employee who was leaving to join the Bing team. Does Bing have cakes, Travis?! Probably not. So much for "feeling lucky."

Well, Internet, you've done it. You've found the one cake that I will not — cannot — bring myself to eat.
In this version of The Little Mermaid, Ursula doesn't just steal Ariel's voice. She steals pretty much everything.

But there's one cake which has stood out above all others in terms of fails...

Sam Faulkner, from Reading, UK, contacted a baker asking if she could make a cake similar to one she'd seen on Pinterest. Little did she know, she was in for a big surprise...

The cake was for her husband’s thirtieth birthday.

The cake she wanted was a pond scene with reeds, fish, and a wooden happy birthday sign.

Emma Beth Mh, who was the baker, has since deleted her Facebook profile.

She accepted the order, telling sam it would be $65, which Sam happily paid. But when the cake arrived, it looked like it was made by a child.

Sam’s mom Sue Faulkner posted on Facebook to warn others about Emma.

And was later interviewed, saying: "My daughter was distraught at when she opened the box. It was nothing like the picture."

She was understandably upset...

"She’d paid half the money for the cake to this woman and what came back looked like it was made by a child. Honestly, it was laughably bad." "The name Graham didn’t even have a capital letter, it was that bad."

After sharing a post, Sue received hundreds of comments, with many others sharing their bad experiences with the baker.

They tried to contact Emma Beth Mh but discovered they had been blocked, and she had even deleted her page.

Sam has only been able to get $20 of her money back.

Sue added: "She’s clearly not a proper cake maker. We’re now able to see the funny side of it afterward, but at the time we were very upset. Even though we had a laugh about it, I still want to warn people this fake cake maker is out there producing these monstrosities and charging people for these terrible attempts at cakes."

Here's the cake in question...

Just a little different from what she paid for. Keep scrolling for more...
