Walmart gives woman a graduation cake made styrofoam



Things went from bad to worse for a high school graduate in Texas whose party cake was twice ruined by Walmart. The girl’s mother, Marsy Flores, blames the retail giant for ruining a once-in-a-lifetime moment in her daughter’s life.

“This is my baby, and she was graduating, so it was very important to me,” Flores told station KPRC in Houston.

According to Flores, when she went to pick up the two-layer cake she’d ordered for her daughter’s graduation, Walmart didn’t have it. The box store offered Flores a smaller cake, for which she wasn’t charged. At least the cake was blue, which was the graduates’ school colors, Flores figured.

Once she arrived home with the pastry, Flores had a hard time carving out slices for celebrants who were ready for dessert. She quickly realized the cake was a block of Styrofoam covered by icing.

Upset, Flores notified Walmart of the mistake and they offered a $60 gift card.

“They can’t replace the moment that we lost,” Flores said. “It’s a special moment, and this is what we got for it, a Styrofoam cake.”

A Walmart rep reportedly called the incident a misunderstanding that had been resolved.

“The customer was given a gift card for her inconvenience,” read the retail giant’s statement.
