She shared that after bringing the cake home, she immediately refrigerated it.

In the comments, a netizen suggested that the pest may have come from the time she spent on transport or shopping.

However, the customer claimed that she went to the mall specially to purchase the cake. She also walked home as she lives just a traffic light away from Waterway Point.

Describing the incident as “horrific and unhygienic”, the lady said it was the first time she had such an experience with a bakery.

Claimed her queries went unanswered, Cedele says it was a system error

In an attempt to get a response from the bakery, the customer also sent multiple messages via email, WhatsApp, and Facebook.

However, she claimed she did not receive any response even after a few days.

A screenshot allegedly of the customer’s WhatsApp conversation with the bakery showed that the latter did not reply for several days.

Currently, Cedele said it is working towards “closing the matter amicably” with the affected customer.
