Funny, I can see it too.... BUT, the most important part... a manager came back after closing to get her edible flowers to "cover" the crotch. A reasonable solution, I believe. The stupid Mom said she couldn't figure out how to stick them in (I assume they were on wires). Come on

Not every minor flaw in life requires a full refund and "do over". <sigh>. The bakery made reasonable accommodation and they are off the hook.  Crazy people on both sides of the "pond", I see....

Well, I looked a the pic several times while reading the article, and I do not buy their reasoning. Teaddy bears have many seams, and is it not oddly suspicious the only seam they choose to represent is in the crotch???

Well, I've never seen a teddy bear seam like that before!  I usually make a stitch seam but it goes all the way up to the neck.  If I had ordered the cake, I probably would have laughed at the stupidity of the bakery  and finished the line up myself.

Well maybe the baker did it on purpose,  I don't know why. What a dummy baker.

Nah, I'm siding with the bakery here. A friend sent me the image first on FB and asked me if I could see why someone was complaining. I looked at it for about 15 minutes trying to see what was offending people and had to ask for the answer. It's a teddy bear, it's for a christening, it;s clearly not meant to be what she thinks it is! 

I wouldn't refund based on what someone is inferring from their own interpretation.

Also, if the bakery went out of her way to cover it up for her, why did she still refuse to serve it and ask for a refund?? Crazy people are everywhere, I guess :)

I can see it, they should have extended the seam all the way up, or put an oval patch on the belly like the drawing gscout73 posted. It was just badly designed. But to complain about it like it was done to make the teddy bear porn-y is stupid.
