The horn of discord: Birthday unicorn cake with phallic-looking horn sparks legal dispute

A birthday cake with an unusually shaped decorative horn has sparked a bitter court case between a bakery and a mum.

The bizarre incident unfolded in the town of Lansing, Michigan, in recent times.

The facts go like this: A mum, named Alexandra Schroeder, ordered a unicorn cake for her daughter’s fifth birthday from Whipped Bakery, a local establishment. Ms. Schroeder reportedly paid $370 for the piece, and the price included use of the bakery’s premises for the celebration.

But things quickly went wrong. It is claimed that the bakery only provided six chairs, and since there were thirteen guests, seven had to stand.

The main, um, bone of contention arose when the cake was presented. According to Ms. Schroeder, the cake bore little resemblance to what she expected, plus it featured a funny looking horn.

The party ended in tears after the bakery accused Ms. Schroeder of ‘leaving a mess’, and saying that she still owed money.

After some bitter arguments over Facebook, both parties agreed to disagree, and decided that the court was the next stage in their dispute.
