These little marzipan teddy bears on top of this cake apparently look like they have vaginas.
That’s according to mother-of-three Sharon Green, who ordered the handmade cake for her daughter Tahila Rose’s christening on Sunday.
After opening the box for the £60 cake and seeing the line between the legs – she angrily called the bakery in Bolton and demanded a refund.
The line, which is painted on, is meant to represent the seam on the toys.
Mrs Green, 45, had ordered the cake for her three-year-old from Occasion Cakes in January and collected it two days beforehand.
But she only noticed the ‘offensive’ marks the day before the celebration.
She told The Bolton News: ‘I was shocked – I just presumed it would be okay, and the same as what I ordered.
‘This was not the cake I ordered – the display model definitely didn’t have this crease on it.
‘It is completely inappropriate. The cake is supposed to be for a three-year-old girl.
‘It’s not just me who thought this, it was a talking point at the christening – everyone was commenting on it.’
The guests decided not to eat the cake and Mrs Green, who has two other children Rhiannah, 20, and Tomas, 10, instead took it back to the shop to ask for a refund.
They served the guests strawberry gateau and profiteroles instead.
But the owners of the cake shop – who have been in business for 30 years – disagreed with the complaint saying the crease was meant to show where the stitching would be on teddy bears.
A spokesman said: ‘The small bear on top of the cake is exactly that – a teddy bear – and the crease on its stomach is supposed to represent the seam where the bear is sewn together.
‘We have been making girl and boy teddies this way for 30 years and no-one has ever drawn such a bizarre, and, quite frankly, distasteful, connection.
‘Also we made every effort to sort out this customer’s “problem”.
‘A member of our staff at the Wigan shop even came back after closing for the night to give her edible flowers to put on the cake to cover up that part of the teddy ornament.’
