The woman went behind the counter to try to fix the cake, according to the Detroit Free Press. When a bakery employee told her she could not be back there the woman went to the front of the counter and drop-kicked the cake, the employee said.
"The action caused pieces of cake and frosting to be strewn about the bakery section of the store," Bloomfield Township Police Sgt. John Weise said in a report, according to Bloomfield-Bloomfield Hills Patch. "The woman quickly left the store, kicking over a wet floor sign on her way out"
There is no surveillance video of the incident, according to the Detroit Free Press.
