A WOMAN has slammed a professional baker after paying £120 for a “disgusting” cake that looked like it was “moulded with five-year-old hands”.
Elly Vickere said the cake looked like it had been made with Play-Doh and was covered in hairs, dirt and “fingernail marks”.
She said: “It was supposed to be a realistic cake but it’s not only horrific looking, it’s disgusting.”
Elly shared her anger on social media as she revealed she drove two hours to pick up the cake from the baker.
It was for her boyfriend’s birthday and supposed to look like a realistic tub of protein powder.
The Australia-based content creator fumed: “I spent $230 (£120) on this cake and it looks like a kid could have rolled up some Play-Doh.

“It looks like it’s been moulded with five-year-old hands.
“It is unhygienic, it is dirty, it’s got hair – several hairs – on it and I’m angry right now.
“The more that I sit with it, the more livid I am.”
Elly was initially recommended to use the baker by people on social media.

She said: “I needed a realistic cake so I posted in a Facebook group about women in business saying, ‘Please recommend a cake maker that specialises in realistic cakes’.
“People tagged this lady and she actually ended up messaging me saying that she could take on the challenge.”
The brief was for a “chocolate mud and chocolate buttercream between layers” of sponge, decorated to look like a “protein bucket” with fondant icing.
Elly said when she picked up the pricey cake, the baker’s mum handed the order over.
Elly said: “Interestingly enough, the girl didn’t want to be there to hand off this cake.
“I think she knew she was scamming me. What she did was she said that she couldn’t be there for the hand off and that she would get her mum to hand it off.
“When I drove the hour there, I was outside of the house, her mum came out while on the phone and she’s like, ‘I’m really sorry, I can’t talk. I’m on a phone call’.
“She quickly grabs the cake, hands it to me and sends me off on my way.”
Elly peeked at the cake through the box and accepted it wouldn’t be totally realistic, but never could have anticipated what she would find when she fully opened the box.
She was mortified at how “dirty” and unrealistic it was.
Elly added: “It’s got brown stains with black hair all over it… There’s like a liquid coming out of it.
