Kensli Taylor Davis went in to her local Dairy Queen to pick up what she thought to be the Moana cake she ordered — but instead was given a marijuana cake. Davis turned down the option for a new cake to be made because she found the marijuana cake to be to funny.
Cassandra Walker, the Georgia Dairy Queen employee who made the ice cream cake, said she was fired over the mishap. According to Walker, her manager is who misheard Davis, who placed the order, thinking she said “marijuana” instead of “Moana.”
Walker claims her manager gave her approval to make the cake. “The manager stood behind me while I pulled the images off the Internet,” Walker said to USA Today. “She walked by as I decorated the cake. As I boxed the cake up, she was the one who walked it up to the front.”
“Our cake decorator designed a cake based on what she thought she heard the customer order. When the customer picked it up and said it was not what she ordered, we immediately apologized for the error and offered to redesign it the way she originally intended. The customer said it was fine, paid for the cake and left,” one of the Dairy Queen owners Al Autry said to USA Today.
Walker was fired on Monday. “It’s not funny to me,” Walker said to USA TODAY. “This is back-to-school time. I have two little girls here. I have a car that needs fixing. It’s not funny to me.”
“It was a mistake,” she said to USA Today. “It could been considered a learning experience. I would have accepted that. I would have accepted being written up. But to be at this job for almost a year and not have a write-up, not be in trouble, and to just be let go because of mistake, it’s not funny to me.”
