Turns out you can have your cake, but you can't always eat it, too.

Marsy Flores told KPRC 2 she purchased a cake from Walmart for her daughter's graduation party and was committed to making sure everything about the big day was flawless.

Her sister Nellie took a video as they attempted to cut it when and realized it wasn't cake, but Styrofoam underneath the frosting.

Woolworths was reported to have reached out to the couple and gave them a $50 gift card for the ordeal as an apology. The store responded to the mishap by giving the family a $60 gift card for the value of the cake.

On Facebook, aunt Nellie Flores raged that the peace offering was not enough for the "humiliation".
