A bride and groom have been brutally mocked for their ‘cattle brand’ style wedding cake.
The bride’s cousin explained that the engaged couple had asked their cake decorator for a cake which would fit in with their “country bumpkin wedding”.
And after a lot of consideration they opted for a cattle brand design.
But when the bride saw the cake for the first time she was absolutely devastated.
The wedding guest shared a snap of the unique design to Reddit and users were ‘gagging’ at the sight of it.
They wrote: “This ‘cattle brand’ themed wedding cake that looks like a crusty, infected nipple.
“This is my cousins cake and the bride was NOT happy when she saw the reveal.
“Not to give the cake maker any credit, but I think a cattle brand cake would be hard to execute well in any circumstances lol.”
The light brown two-tiered cake is decorated with flowers and mushrooms and is sat upon a wooden log.
The couple’s initials “C+C” are also written on the side to resemble how farmers brand their animals.
Since being posted it has received 1,200 upvotes and tens of comments from Reddit users who were confused by the design.
A couple of people thought the details on the cake were supposed to resemble tree bark, but the Reddit poster said: “This was my cousin’s country bumpkin wedding and they absolutely told the cake decorator to make it look like a cattle brand.
“I almost wish it was tree bark lol not that’d it make the execution any better.”
One person said: “I feel like this is a case of distant aunt or friend of parent says ‘oh my daughter makes the prettiest cakes and she’ll cut you a deal!’
“Because, honestly, the alternative is that the bride and groom saw this atrocity coming and were okay with it.”
Another added: “Ah yes. A wedding cake that looks like burnt and mutilated cow flesh. How romantic.”
A third said: “I get the initials, but I’m still trying to figure out what the heck that deal on top is actually supposed to be. Looks like a lanced boil.”
And a fourth person admitted: “I just gagged” – definitely not the response you’d hope for when your guests see your wedding cake.
