An outraged mum from Southend On Sea has threatened to take legal action against a local cake maker after she received a 9th birthday cake for her daughter that was upside down.

According to 33-year-old Michelle Garridge, her daughter Chloe’s birthday was ‘ruined’ last Wednesday when they had no alternative but to use the incorrect cake from Petunia Ecoli, the owner of Fondants With Somebody.

Ms Garridge added, ‘How difficult can it be to get a number nine the correct way up?’

‘Because of Mrs Ecoli’s incompetence, all of her little friends keep making fun of her and calling her six years old.’

‘I have already booked a sitting at the Supreme Court in London.’
