Mom calls out baker after her gender reveal cake goes hilariously wrong

A new mom is stirring up plenty of outrage after sharing a video of her gender reveal cake.

The woman, who goes by the username crazypiggies, shared the disastrous mistake on TikTok.

Her clip features two photos. The first is the cake she thought she was getting for her baby’s gender reveal party, and the other is the cake she actually got.

The first cake is bumblebee themed, with the words “What will it bee” written in icing. Her actual cake, however, turned out much differently.

Instead of a yellow and white bumblebee theme, the mom got a cake topped with real flowers and a strange, creepy baby. Worst of all, the baker made the icing blue, prematurely revealing that the baby was going to be a boy.

The mom’s video, which has more than 4.1 million views, attracted thousands of angry comments. Some users called the mistake “upsetting.”

“Not even remotely close to what you wanted,” one user wrote.

“This is just unacceptable,” another added.

Others suggested that the mom demand a refund. In the comments, the TikToker shared that the cake cost $70 and that, despite her complaints, the baker would not return her money.

“I would not have paid for that,” one commented.

“You had to talk to the manager this is so wrong i cant believe this…” another added.

The mom-to-be seemingly took it in stride though. She even shared a second video weeks later, revealing that her baby shower cake — presumably made by a different baker — was much better.

“My baby shower cake made up for it!” she captioned the clip. “So grateful for my baby boy and it’ll always be such a funny story to tell.”
