Nothing says Happy Birthday like a surprise $72 cake cutting fee. An Australian winery ruined the birthday spirit when they charged $72 to cut a celebratory cake.
The woman who found the surprise fee on her bill says that if she had known, she’d literally cut it with a butter knife herself to avoid the costly fee.
Some reports say she was aware of a charge for cutting a cake in advance, meanwhile, the restaurant claims they do advertise that they charge $6 per head for cake cutting.
I’ve heard of a corking fee… but a cake cutting fee? That’s a bit much.
