Mom claims bakery gave teddy bears on her daughter’s cake vaginas

Unfortunately, the joke whose punchline is “They’re your dirty pictures!” can’t be shared in polite company, so suffice it simply to say that beauty is the eye of the beholder

Having said that, a mother in Bolton, England, doesn’t find much beauty in the decorations adorning a christening cake for three-year-old daughter, which include a pair of teddy bears that — in her view (and probably yours) — were anatomically correct.

From the Bolton News:

Sharon Green says she was horrified when she picked up the cake from Occasion Cakes for her three-year-old daughter Tahlia Rose’s christening and saw that it had a “crease” that makes the teddy look like it has female genitals.

Mrs Green complained to the firm and demanded a refund, but she has not been given her money back.

The Bolton firm, which has branches in Chorley Old Road and Wigan town centre, said the crease represents the seam where the bear has been “sewn together”.

Occasion Cakes is run by husband and wife Steve and Angela Howarth, who say they have never received any such complaints before and that the crease is used on both girl and boy teddies.

They claim Mrs Green, aged 45, has made a “bizarre and distasteful” connection.

In an effort to appease Green, the bakery added icing roses to conceal the bears’ intimate parts, which one supposes is the modern equivalent of fig leaves.

Something there is these days that doesn’t love a bakery.
