So, I asked for a Tudor themed cake for DD's birthday and I got this. I think It looks like the Michelin Man with a massive stonk on. My MIL thinks it looks like a turd which has made me cry. How can I put it in front of the kiddies??!

I'm going with massive turd personally.

Just cover it with cake toppers abd candles abd the kids won't even notice.

I do hope you asked for a refund though.

Now if only you had gone for a peacock theme...

Stick a few fairies on it. It'll be fine.

Isn't that off tonight's Bake Off?

Is that a giant yellow codpiece at the front of him? It seems to have something squirting out of it?

I rarely 'share' MN with DH ( it's my precious, mine all mine.........) but this has made us both LOL! gringrin
Ask Andrew for your money back......

Oh lord!!

Was it expensive?!!

AnchorDownDeepBreath Wed 12-Oct-16 22:27:58

Wowser was it all the GBBO branding that gave it away? wink

Kione Wed 12-Oct-16 22:28:08

It does say #GBBO on the pic

AnchorDownDeepBreath Wed 12-Oct-16 22:28:45

Alberta I hadn't spotted the squirting. Ew grin

It was free but I'm going to ask for compensation. How much compo will depend on what it tastes like of course.

Sancia Wed 12-Oct-16 22:29:21

Who on earth did you ask??

If that was a prfoessional cake maker it's a disaster and they deserve to be publicly shamed.

If it was your mate whose Instagram photos of cakes are perhaps stolen, s/he should apologise.

If it was your mate who just said "Yeah I'm quite good at cakes", well... buyer beware :p

(your DD likes Tudors?)

As soon as we saw it I said it looked like a jizz cake grin

TheWitTank Wed 12-Oct-16 22:29:56

How much did you pay? Are you deducting £5 from the price?

Sancia Wed 12-Oct-16 22:30:09

Oh, OK, I don't watch GBBO.

AlbertaDewdrop Wed 12-Oct-16 22:30:21

What is GBBO?

pissedglitter Wed 12-Oct-16 22:30:43

Great British Bake Off

Soubriquet Wed 12-Oct-16 22:30:51

I find myself in a similar situation my gender reveal party is tomorrow and I've just picked up the cake this evening sad I said I wanted a girl themed cake

benbry Wed 12-Oct-16 22:31:42

What is that yellow thing?

MoonriseKingdom Wed 12-Oct-16 22:31:54

Whatever he's asking for it pay £5 less.

MooPointCowsOpinion Wed 12-Oct-16 22:32:12

Haha demand compensation. We're all scarred from seeing it too, we need compensating accordingly.

Fucking Andrew. I do not like him or his jizz soldier pie.

Soubriquet Wed 12-Oct-16 22:33:10

The yellow thing was supposed to be a Knights jousting lance

HateSummer Wed 12-Oct-16 22:33:31

😂. It's just so crap. So so crap.

Reminds me of a Blackadder sketch.
