Take a long look at the following wedding cakes. See if you notice a difference.
You might need to give it a minute to really see it.
Or not. Obviously those two cakes aren't even close. Amazingly enough, the one on the right was supposed to be modeled after the one on the left.
A bride in the U.K. sent the picture of the black cake to a baker in the hopes of arriving at her reception and seeing a confection similar waiting for her and her groom to cut into.
Instead, she saw what looks to be a leaning tower of bruised rotting flesh more likely to be found on an episode of Criminal Minds than a wedding reception.
Of course, the only logical step to take would be to try and sell the monstrosity on eBay... and that is exactly what the bride did!
She listed it with the description, "A few defects due to maker being unskilled. Uncut, along with large amount of awful cupcakes for free. No topper or decoration. Unusual design. Very heavy."
If you feel like the cake was missing a little something, don't worry because the bride adds: "I have roses which fell off this abomination if required. Sorry no returns."
This is the Internet, so of course there was the obligatory party pooper who pointed out that it likely wasn't a good idea to sell the cake online. But the bride took it in stride: "Thanks for message and concern about the cake. It has been advertised purely as a joke and I'm not expecting anyone to buy it."
Amazingly enough, though? She'd already gotten bids. Quite a few actually!
Just goes to show, people will buy anything if you call it an abomination and add a couple roses.
