Mourners at a funeral in northern Germany have been accidentally served “hash cake,” nearby police say.
Thirteen funeral-goers at a restaurant in Wiethagen knowledgeable nausea and dizziness immediately after consuming the cake.
A police investigation identified a restaurant employee’s daughter had been asked to bake the cake.
But the 18-year-old had also baked a “hash cake” for a separate occasion, and the mother took the incorrect dessert to operate.
Going for coffee and cake immediately after a burial is German tradition.
Police in the nearby city of Rostock say the employee’s daughter is beneath investigation.
The incident occurred in August, but was not produced public earlier out of respect for the mourners, according to the Linked Press.
