Woman Baker In Egypt Arrested For Baking Erotic Cakes Topped With Penis’ And Lingerie

By  | 

Until a few months ago, I thought of Egypt as one of the most beautiful countries. The Pyramids, the Nile, the rich history… it’s all so intriguing. However, now when I think about it, the first thing that comes to mind is how orthodox the country is. I mean, the fact that they jailed multiple female TikTok celebrities for posting videos of themselves singing and dancing, speaks for itself. This time though, the Egyptian authorities arrested a woman after accusing her of baking indecent erotic cakes that were decorated with icing in the shape of genitals and lingerie. I don’t know how this is offensive. 

This woman is a certified pastry chef who had served these cakes at a birthday party at an exclusive sports club in Cairo. However, the BBC reported that soon the pictures of these cakes went viral and the baker landed herself in a sticky situation. Get it? Get it? 

After the images went viral, the woman was arrested but then released on a bail of $319 (Rs 23,283). Top Islamic authorities in Egypt deemed the cakes forbidden under religious law and described it as an ‘assault on the value system, and a crude abuse of society’. Meanwhile, the ministry of youth and sports investigating the involvement of the sports club that hosted the private gathering.

The common public deemed the baked goods ‘unacceptable socially’. They added that there are 100 more ways to celebrate apart from ‘f***ing penis and vagina’. Thankfully though, some people called out the arrest. They say it was “‘eliminating any space for personal freedoms in Egypt.” 

You know, if I am being very honest, this arrest is completely uncalled for. We have all enjoyed erotic, phallic cakes at some point or another. There is absolutely nothing offensive about it. And if we go by this logic then everything is extremely offensive. Haven’t we all laughed at sexual innuendos and jokes? It’s not something people should get arrested over. Also, I really don’t see how it affects religious sentiments. 

Human rights lawyer Negad El Borai took to Twitter to say, “There is a segment of society, with support of the state, that wants to eliminate any space for personal freedom in Egypt under the pretext of safeguarding Egyptian family values.”
