Sam Faulkner got in touch with a cake-maker to produce a fishing-themed cake for her brother Graham, who was celebrating his 30th birthday.

However, she was shocked when it arrived looking like it had been made by a child and covered in dog hairs.

Her mother Sue Faulkner told BerkshireLive: "My daughter was distraught at when she opened the box. It was nothing like the picture.

"She'd paid half the money for the cake to this woman and what came back looked like it was made by a child. Honestly, it was laughably bad.

"The name Graham didn't even have a capital letter, it was that bad."
