Furious bride reports guest after ‘police eat stolen wedding cake’
A furious bride shopped a guest to police after her wedding cake was allegedly stolen – then handed out to cops at a city station.
Claire Phillips claims an old school pal took her £175, 75-cupcake creation home at the end of her wedding reception.
But the 30-year-old newlywed was horrified to discover, when only 25 cakes were returned, that her friend’s policeman boyfriend had taken the rest to share with his colleagues. Claire, from Great Barr in Birmingham, complained to West Midlands Police but was told it was a civil matter. Childminder Claire and husband Andy wed on October 26 at Holt Castle before celebrating at a nearby reception in Worcester. The bride-to-be had invited her old school friend, who had got back in touch on Facebook after 14 years.
The cupcakes, paid for by Claire’s sister-in-law, were boxed up at the end of the reception, to be handed to guests later.
“We got so caught up in the excitement of the day that we forgot to hand out the cakes to guests,” she said. “We left at about midnight and the woman who took the cakes started to box them up with a bridesmaid, who told her everything should be left in the room until the next day.
“She insisted that she would take them with her, and my bridesmaid assumed that she would drop them back to us the next day.”I couldn’t believe it when she would not answer our calls the next day. I was so angry that I went round to her house and stood knocking at the door. “She did not answer but did eventually leave 25 of them in a black bag on her doorstep.
“I tried to get the other 50 back but received a text message as we were leaving for the airport for our honeymoon, which said her partner had them with him at the police station.
“We assume they were just handed out. My sister-in-law spent £175 on the cakes and is gobsmacked that someone would do this.”
In text message exchanges between Claire and her ex-pal, the former friend said: “Falling out over some fucking cakes. Wish I hadn’t bothered coming. Happy honeymoon. “You really should prioritise what’s important. This is not worth the stress you’re making for yourself.”
But Claire said: “We are just really angry and upset about the whole thing. This was no ordinary cake, it is really important to us. “We made a statement with police in Kingstanding, Birmingham. We were given a crime reference number but received a call to say that it would be very hard to prove deception.
“It just makes you really angry.” A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “This incident was reported to us on November 6. Advice was given that it was a civil matter.” The force did not comment on claims that the cakes were handed out to West Midlands police officers.
