Styrofoam wedding cake ruins bride's big day
Filipina bride breaks down as wedding caterers end up supplying a fake cake made out of styrofoam.
PASIG, PHILIPPINES — A Filipina bride cut into her wedding cake last month, only to find out it was made out of styrofoam.
Tamayo and her Taiwanese partner Jhon Chen paid the wedding planner 140,000 pesos, or around US$2,700, to supply the food, the wedding cake, and the wedding decorations, according to Metro.
The incident took plane on December 3, in the city of Pasig, near Manila during the couple's wedding reception.
The couple got the shock of their lives when they cut into the cake and found half the cake stuffed with styrofoam. The cake was still wrapped in red icing, giving an illusion of a proper cake.
The caterers also failed to provide food for the guests, forcing the couple to visit a nearby restaurant to purchase noodles, rice and other street foods, according to the DailyMail.
The bride, the groom and the guests went to a local police station with officers inspecting the wedding cake and confirming that the cake base was made entirely of styrofoam.
The bride said she had "never been so humiliated," adding that the wedding planner "needs to go to jail" for ruining her wedding.
