A STUNNED woman claimed she thought she would get fired after the birthday cake she ordered her boss showed up looking quite unappetizing.
She said she thought she found a credible baker, but the cake looked nothing like the one she thought she was getting.

The woman, Shirley Tempeh, revealed the series of unfortunate events that occurred via several videos posted on social media.
She claimed that she was given just seven days to find a baker to create a multi-tiered Dominican-style birthday cake in Miami for her boss’ “birthday extravaganza.”
Dominican cake is like a spongey pound cake, according to Tempeh.
“I called every cake shop in Miami.

“I called every person I know who bakes and they all told me they didn’t have enough time to do it,” she recalled.
She added that in hindsight, it should have been a sign that the cake could not be successfully created.
However, Tempeh ended up going with the woman who made a “basic cake” for her boss last year and since her Instagram page had positive reviews, she put her full trust in her.
The inspiration cake Tempeh showed in her first video about the situation consisted of three film reels stacked on top of each other with a large popcorn bag and a director’s slate on top.

Unfortunately, the cake she received barely resembled the original design.
It was made of two circular cakes stacked on each other and was covered unevenly in a light blue icing.
There was a small slate attached to the bottom cake and an even smaller Dominican flag on the second tier.
There were some red and blue stars sticking out of each layer and a “happy birthday” sign on top.
In the caption of the video showing the side-by-side comparison, Tempeh wrote: “I’m surprised I didn’t get fired that night.”
She also noted in the comment section that she paid half price for the cake and that she was “embarrassed” to present her boss with it.
Tempeh’s viewers were just as shocked about the questionable cake, with one writing that it couldn’t “be real.”
“It’s so NOT what you asked for. In fact it’s like the opposite,” they added.
“Dear Sweet Baby Jesus!” another exclaimed.
“I would have just said it fell out of the car onto the road and it was [not savable].”
“Wow. Talk about creative freedom,” a third quipped.

Tempeh also said she pleaded with her coworkers to not show the cake, but it was served.
On the bright side, she still has a job.
