New Zealand cake maker Emma McDonald is in deep doo-doo after sending a poop-shaped chocolate cake to an engagement party.
McDonald, the owner of Oh Cakes, reportedly had a disagreement with bride Micaela Harris's sister, which prompted her to send the cake with a card that read "Eat sh*t".

On her personal Facebook page, McDonald explained that Harris's sister had won a $50 cake voucher, but it was reduced to $30 because the client owed her $20 from a prior business arrangement. The client reportedly didn't give McDonald any direction for the cake apart from it being chocolate -- and that's exactly what she got.
Don't be stupid and ask for photos (with a CAKE voucher you won) get angry at me when I have to cancel because of the weather.... reschedule the next day.... don't show up and make some lame arse excuse about sending a message and making a call to my cell (bullshit!!) then demand a $50 cake with the voucher - then remembering you owe me $20 for travel to take your family photos in the first place.... your left with a $30 voucher and you want a cake still?? ok cool - give me some ideas?? - oh wait you have none apart from wanting chocolate, I have a brilliant idea for your cake!!!! - so here it is your turd cake! Hope you learn your lesson. [all sic]
The cake was completely wrapped when it arrived at the engagement party, so no one knew what was in the box until she opened it in front of her 100+ guests.
According to Stuff.co.nz., Harris said that McDonald's "silly decision" was "taken too far."
"As a business owner, you come across customers you don't like but you have got to take the highs and the lows, got to suck it up."
The Huffington Post reached out to McDonald for comment, but did not hear back by time of publication.
