A wife was left fuming after she paid $65 for a professional cake only to receive one that was made by a child.
And that’s not all. Her professional cake was also covered in dog hair.
The woman from Gloucester said she contacted a cakemaker called ‘Emma Beth Mh’ for a fishing-themed cake as she wanted to surprise her husband for his 30th birthday.
But the moment she received her order, it looked nothing like what she had requested.
The woman’s mother, Sue, shared a photo of the ‘professional cake’ on Facebook where it drew the attention of professional bakers.
Mrs. Faulkner also warned others of being scammed by Emma Beth Mh.
In an interview with BershireLive, she said: “My daughter was distraught at when she opened the box. It was nothing like the picture.
“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.”
She continued: “The name Graham didn’t even have a capital letter, it was that bad.
“I was very cross, so I said ‘I’m putting it on Facebook’. Once I did that, it became clear there were other people who had encountered her as well.
“I tried to contact her and she blocked me straight away and deleted the page.”
Mrs. Faulkner added: “I’m going to Trading Standards as she’s clearly not a proper cake maker. We’re now able to see the funny side of it afterwards, 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.”
