Mom Trashes Bakery Over Cupcake Shortage

Would you throw a fit for one of these? Or just wait for a fresh batch?

Dang. Sugarswirlz must sell some pretty good stuff.

When a mother came in to the sweet shop with her kids and was told there were no more “sweet tooth fairy” cakes, her favorite cupcake flavor, she completely melted down. Like, toddler-style, with raging, attacks and attempts to smash the furniture.

Remember, we’re talking about a cupcake shop, not a pub (not that her behavior would be OK in a pub!).

Owner of the newly opened shop, which is in Cardiff, Wales, in the U.K., said they could have easily accommodated the woman.

She need only have waited for them to bake a fresh batch!

Here’s what 43-year-old shop owner Sally Dodd told the Daily Mail:

‘She didn’t even wait for us to tell her that if she waited we could bake some fresh cupcakes for her.

‘She threw herself on the floor ranting and raving while her children screamed and shouted.

‘Then she came round to my side of the counter and grabbed me by the hair before I could get out of her way.

‘I managed to tear myself free before the woman started smashing glass display units and spilling cakes all over the floor. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Police have been searching for the woman since the incident was reported. Sugarswirlz sustained about 400 U.K. pounds in damages, around $780.

The tirade-worthy flavor, incidentally, is a cake made from an assortment of flavors and topped with candy floss (what Americans know as cotton candy). It sells for 2.20 pounds — which is a little over $3.50.

Sounds good but I think I can keep it together if I have to go without.
