Baker “fired” over ‘Moana’ ‘Marijuana’ birthday cake confusion

The latest update to the ‘Marijuana’ birthday cake confusion story isn’t quite as funny…

Last week, we wrote about the ‘Moana’ ‘Marijuana’ birthday cake confusion which the recipient, Kensli Taylor Davis, found hilarious.

But, the latest update isn’t such a laughing matter, as People reports. The ice cream cake was bought from the American bakery chain Dairy Queen, and it’s reported that Cassandra Walker – the creator of the cake featuring marijuana imagery – has claimed she was fired.

Though it was Cassandra’s manager that took the order and misheard ‘Moana’ as ‘Marijuana’, Cassandra took the fall, and was reportedly fired for it – and on her own birthday no less!

Speaking to USA Today on a phone interview, Cassandra said: “It’s not funny to me. This is back-to-school time. I have two little girls here. I have a car that needs fixing.”

“The manager stood behind me while I pulled the images off the internet. She walked by as I decorated the cake. As I boxed the cake up, she was the one who walked it up to the front.”

USA Today claims that Cassandra was later offered her job back by a manager that wasn’t involved in the incident, but has declined the opportunity.
