A mother lovingly made a crystal themed birthday cake for her son’s sixth birthday – but it ended up looking like a sparkly vagina. Mum-of-two Kate created gold vanilla sponge cake designed to look like a geode for her son Finlay Kirven, who loves crystals, on Monday.
Kate spent two hours making and decorating the geode cake which featured a split on one side decorated with gold glitter and black and white sugar crystals. It was only when the 36-year-old stood back to take a picture that she realised her amazing cake actually looked like a crystallised vagina. Of course, Finlay is far too young to understand and was delighted with his cake – despite family members trying not to laugh as he blew out the candles. Kate from Oxted, Surrey, said: ‘I was in the kitchen baking away and it didn’t occur to me what it looked like.
‘I was in the zone and so involved in what I was doing trying to get the crystals to stay put. It was quite intricate work so I didn’t take a proper look. ‘I stepped back to take a picture to send to my husband and I suddenly realised what it looked like. I was like “oh heck”.

‘I thought I was making Finlay a geode and then I thought “oh no I’ve made him a sparkly vagina”. ‘My husband had a laugh and said “it will be fine, he won’t know what it is”. ‘Finlay was delighted, he didn’t know what it was. He’s only six so he thought I’d made him a cake of his favourite rock – he thought it was brilliant. ‘When he’s 18 he might look at it differently.’ Kate, who runs her own face painting business, baked the cake on Monday and invited family members over to celebrate Finlay’s birthday after he finished school.
Kate said: ‘We had my dad, my husband’s mum and family members coming round to see him and the idea was to bring the cake out. ‘I did warn my family what it looked like. My dad would have been in hysterics if I hadn’t told him. I showed it to him and he just looked at me and I said ‘don’t say anything’. ‘They were all trying to stifle giggles while we sang ‘happy birthday’. ‘Finlay didn’t have a clue, he thought it was brilliant. It was gold and sparkly – everything he wished for.’
She continued: ‘It’s a good job I didn’t have to go into school with it – the teachers would have been horrified. ‘His proper birthday party is at the weekend so I’m really glad it wasn’t his cake for that party. ‘Could you imagine bringing that thing out in a room full of school mums? There’d be uproar.
‘I’m planning to make another cake for his party but this one is going to be of a penguin – hopefully that will turn out okay. ‘I keep giggling about it. I shared a picture of it on social media and I keep getting notifications about it. ‘I thought it might give a couple of people a laugh but it’s had thousands of likes. ‘It was my first attempt at that particular cake. I usually make one for every birthday and this is the first one that’s been an epic fail. ‘I’m planning on showing him the picture when he’s older. It’s definitely one to bring out for his 18th birthday.’ Metro reports.
