This cocaine-themed birthday cake design is not to be sniffed at.
When Stacey Morris’s boyfriend, Ollie, turned 23 she wanted to celebrate with a cake that has the ‘wow factor’ and, with the help of her friend, Becky Allsop, she pulled out all the stops.
Speaking to UNILAD, Stacey explained how she executed the tongue-in-cheek surprise and what Ollie thought of the delicious offering – complete with icing sugar lines, notes and even Ollie’s old driving license.
The cake was for my boyfriend’s 23rd birthday. He absolutely loved it and said it would by far be his most remembered birthday and was shocked how creative it was.
He knew I was getting a customised cake for him but had no idea it was going to be that design.
I wanted a wow factor and Ollie likes jungle music so it was originally going to be a turn table cake.
But after seeing the Pinterest-worthy cocaine design on a Google search, 22-year-old Stacey ‘just knew it would be amazing’.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. You don’t want to roll that out in front of your grandma and have to explain the reference.
But, luckily Stacey dodged all potential awkwardness, adding:
We had a few friends over and at midnight bought the cake through to him. Both our families ad our friendship groups are very laid back. Everyone saw the funny side!
Stacey enlisted the help of her college friend, Becky, the Norfolk-based baker who constructed the sweet masterpiece. But Stacey said the design is almost too good to eat, adding: “The cake’s still been barely touched because I won’t let him eat it!”
Responding to criticism from keyboard warriors, Stacey said:
I wish more people could see the funny side of it.
It’s only a cake and there’s a lot worse things happening in the world than a harmless joke… Plus it was yummy!
This joke certainly won’t be leaving a bitter taste in Ollie’s mouth.
