Is there ANYTHING that people won't complain about? (1)

Owners of a cake shop in Bolton have hit back at complaints that marzipan teddy bears on top of a three-year-old's christening cake were painted with 'vaginas'.

Mother-of-three Sharon Green refused to serve the 'offensive' £60 cake at her daughter Tahila Rose's christening on Sunday because of the line between the teddy bears' legs.

Mrs Green, who is also mother to Rhiannah, 20, and 10-year-old Tomas, ordered the cake in January and said the display version in the business' Wigan branch did not have the 'offending' mark.

When she took it back to the shop, an assistant even gave her some flowers to preserve the teddy's modesty, but Mrs Green said she was not able to stick them down.

The owners of Occasion Cakes, which has been in business for the past 30 years, hit back at Mrs Green's complaint - saying the crease is used on both 'boy and girl' teddies to represent where the toy's stitching would have been.

A spokesman for the business said because all the cakes were handmade, there are slight variations between display models and completed cakes.

He added: 'The small bear on top of the cake is exactly that - a teddy bear - and the crease on its stomach is supposed to represent the seam where the bear is sewn together.

'We have been making girl and boy teddies this way for 30 years and no-one has ever drawn such a bizarre, and, quite frankly, distasteful, connection.

if she sees a "vagina" it's a freudian reflection of her own mind.

Some people should not be allowed to mix with the general population if that is their idea of offence.
