As bizarre as it might sound but a woman was arrested on charges of baking an ‘indecent’ cake. The Egyptian woman was held after being accused of baking cakes that were sexually suggestive and garnished with genitalia and underwear.

The cakes that were said to be topped with the unusual ‘decorations’ oozing out of the fondant icing were reportedly eaten at a birthday party held at a sports club in Cairo, according to a BBC report.

The baker was arrested after photos of the cakes went viral, but she was later released on bail.

A religious body warned that goods with sexual representations were forbidden according to Islam.

The involvement of the club that hosted the private gathering is being looked into by the country's ministry of youth and sports, and according to the report guests who attended the party may also face action.
