Knife in Elmo birthday cake ends a toddler’s party

A Maine family was shocked and angry to find a knife in their toddler’s Elma birthday cake.

Cayden Bibeau, age 2, had his Elmo themed party come to a quick end as his father Nathan Bibeau told WGME that his son’s birthday party was cancelled after the family found the knife, left in the cake by an employee at Walmart where he bought it.

Walmart released this response: “This should not have happened.  We’re thankful no one was hurt and sincerely apologize to our customers for their experience.  We are reaching out to the family to resolve this.”

Walmart says it is also taking immediate action to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

The store is pulling that particular paring knife from its bakery in Auburn and considering pulling the knife from bakeries across the country.

Bibeau says he still plans to shop at Walmart and “won’t hold a grudge.”
