SAN FRANCISCO — A family of cakes caused traffic to screech to a halt as they were crossing the street, officials said. The confections were not injured. However, at least 8 people had to be rushed to a cafe to be treated for severe salivation.
The cakewalk happened just a few minutes after a nearby pastry shop filed a police report for a missing birthday cake and a dozen cupcakes. The shop regularly rescues cakes from bakeries, also known as cuppy mills, and keeps them in a safe environment until they are adopted.
But this battered cake family couldn’t wait for adoption and escaped to search for a new home. Upon spotting the cakes, police officers immediately adopted them.
