A Leeds bakery has gone viral after its hilarious rant on someone reporting them due to their illegal use of sprinkles. Yes, you couldn’t write it. Get Baked in Leeds were reported from using sprinkles imported from the US that apparently don’t meet trading standards. Madness is all we can say.
The popular Leeds bakery known for their huge layered cakes and tasty and colourful creations have named the hilarious exchange as #sprinklegate.
Starting on the 3rd October the company posted on their Facebook saying:
“Just a quick heads up to let you all know that we’re closed tomorrow for the following reasons:
- Staff training
- Need to get some other important shit done
- Everyone’s fucking knackered
This weekend has been utterly sensational, we’ve had customer visits from countless cities, sold fuck tonnes of Bruce in various forms, oh and not to mention a lovely visit from Trading Standards on Friday after someone reported us for using what are apparently illegal sprinkles.
More on that one next week.
Hope you fail.
They explained that the sprinkles were imported from the USA and may contain food colourings not allowed in the UK. Making light of the situation Get Baked wrote that they’d be “on sprinkle strike and won’t budge for no man,” as UK sprinkles are crap.
Over a week later there was finally news from the Trading Standards and it wasn’t good. Get Baked had been told to “cease use of our sprinkles with immediate effect.”
They posted that “Obviously, we will be following the rules, and removing them as of now. Whilst this might seem like it’s not a big deal, it’s actually very fucking annoying, as A LOT of people ask for Birthday Bruce’s and Rasperry Glazed Donut Cookies are not only our best selling cookie, but they’re utterly sensational.”
“It is HIGHLY unlikely that we will find any legal sprinkles that we will use as a replacement. British sprinkles just aren’t the same, they’re totally shit and I hate them.
I am extremely passionate about sprinkles.”
Adamant he will not use the UK sprinkles it seems it is back to the drawingboard for this West Yorkshire bakery. We’ve enjoyed what is being called #sprinklegate and will be on the look out for their new replacements for the Birthday Bruce and Rasberry Glazed Donut Cookies.
