This is a short video posted by aunt-of-a-recent-high-school-graduate Nellie Flores of the graduation cake they purchased from Walmart that turned out to have an entirely Styrofoam interior. Well sure it might not be as tasty as yellow or chocolate cake, but it is significantly lower calorie. Some more details, after the Walmart lost their initial order and agreed to make a smaller cake free of charge to make up for it:
All was well until Flores went for a slice during the graduation party, when she realized that underneath the requested vanilla frosting and a customized picture of her daughter was a sheet of foam.
"They can't replace the moment that we lost," Flores told the station. "It's a special moment, and this is what we got for it, a Styrofoam cake. Not only did they mess up one time, they did it twice."
The family received a $60 gift card from Walmart after the incident, Marsy told KPRC.
"We apologize for our mistake," a Walmart spokesperson wrote in a statement to USA TODAY. "This is never something we want to take place. Our store manager has made their best effort to make the situation right and will continue to work with the bakery team to understand what happened and ensure it doesn't happen again."
At least the exterior looked good. So what exactly happened here? Because my guess is somebody accidentally added decorations to an already iced for-display-only fake cake and didn't realize their mistake. It happens. Personally, I don't see what the big deal is. "Says the guy who just ate an entire fake fruit basket." *shrug* Free is free and I'm full now.
Keep going for the video of the cake cutting.
Thanks to Joanna P, who agrees this is exactly why you stick your finger in a cake before leaving the store.
