The art of a good birthday cake is hard to master but you'd hope that most professional bakers could pull off a simple request.

That's exactly what Sharon Bijin from Lemington, Newcastle thought as well.

The 44-year-old forked out £50 to a baker she found on Facebook to create a cake in the shape of a muscled arm, as a birthday cake for her bodybuilder boyfriend Jay.

An image of what Sharon envisioned the cake would look like can be seen below.

What should have been the ideal treat for Jay's 32nd birthday soon turned into a scene from a horror movie.

Sharon had checked online reviews of the baker beforehand and was assured that this was a quality cake maker.

However, judging by the end product this baker would probably be better suited to make props for the Alien films.

Understandably Sharon wasn't too impressed. She is quoted by The Sun as saying:

When I went to collect it she said not to open it as it was raining but when I got home and saw it I was pretty shocked, everyone thinks it looks like a cashew nut or an alien.

I went to contact her but she'd blocked me on Facebook and then she entirely removed her account when I tried to get friends to find her.

Despite being annoyed at wasting £50, Sharon was able to see the funny side of the situation.

She adds:

It cost £50 but I've written that money off.

Initially I was angry as it's a lot of money and I only work part-time but now I can't stop laughing.

It's safe to say that whoever this baker is, they won't be appearing on The Great British Bake Off anytime soon.
