Last week, we shared the story of the baker who made a marijuana-themed birthday cake instead of a Disney’s “Moana” version for a 25-year-old at a Georgia Dairy Queen. And according to the employee, she has since been fired over the mistake that may not have been her fault in the first place.
Cassandra Walker, the employee who created the marijuana-themed dessert in place of what was supposed to be a Disney-themed cake at the Georgia Dairy Queen, revealed in a new interview that her manager was the one who had taken the order, not her. Walker shared that her manager was the one who misunderstood Kensli Davis’ mother and then told her to create the cake.
“The manager stood behind me while I pulled the images off the internet,” Walker said. “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.”
According to an owner at the Dairy Queen Store, when Davis’ mother came to the Dairy Queen to retrieve the cake and had discovered the error, the store apologized for the issue and offered to make a new one. However, Davis declined
“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,” Al Autry, a manager at the Dairy Queen, said.
I haven’t had a chance to tell y’all about our experience this weekend with my birthday cake. So my mama called and…
Although, for Walker, the story didn’t end there. On Monday, Walker says she was let go from the Dairy Queen by Autry. And according to Walker, she says she had not had any issues with her performance at the franchise during her year of employment.
“It’s not funny to me,” Walker said. “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.”
Walker says she was later offered her job back by another manager. But she says she declined the offer because of how she was treated during the incident. “It was a mistake. It could have been considered a learning experience,” Walker said. “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 a mistake, it’s not funny to me.”
