I got the funniest text the other day which was obviously a scam though I don't know how they get anything out of it. I asked for an address immediately because I felt that something was up from the start based on the strange phrasing (for my area anyway). Where in the heck did all of these flavors come from?? HA HA

I spent the last 2 hours trying to log in to say "please, oh PLEASE send this to @costumeczar !  (Obvs, it didn't work until it was too late.  Boo hiss!)

Comedy gold, indeed!!!!!

Nice one! I wonder what "etc" and "The Original" tastes like. Maybe we should ask @MBalaska  about the "Alaskan moose chocolate" though. It's like the robot pulled flavors from random headlines, ha ha!

Haha - hilarious, I want to try the 'bump-a-licious' and 'Alskan Moose', how much for those in cookie cake please.

I think there is a recipe for the "bump-a-licious" in the X-rated section of this forum.

Even a non english-speaker must know that listing this many flavors in a text is weird. I try to be professional even when I'm pretty sure it is fake. (At least not laughing in their face). I did google the flavor list and came up with an actual cake website that lists these. I guess they thought that if one was good, all of them would be better!

You want 400 peaces.... of what???

Seriously? Who lists those flavors....Actually, there was a woman in my area who had "lemon crud" on her website as a filling option for years. I never told her about it because I thought it was hilarious.

Wow, that's hilarious! I think that scammer got some of the "flavours" from this website

SweetShop5 beat me to it. I just found the site they got the flavors from and yes it's The Cupcake Station. They have very interesting flavors that's for sure! Apparently the "bumps" are buttercream bumps on top, then the cupcake is dipped in chocolate. Somehow that doesn't sound or look very appealing to me. But it seems to work for their customers! You never know what people will like until you try I guess, ha ha!

yeah... I thought the Bump A Licious had the opportunity to be much more exciting...

It's based off of Bumpy Cake, a style of cake made by Sanders, here in Michigan.  It's a cake with tunnels of piped white buttercream under a layer of chocolate icing.

If you put "a-licious" on the end of anything it makes it so much more descriptive.
