As per the photo tested by Justin Mikita, it showcases a mangled and decaying edition of Amy Winehouse’s corpse.

It was reported that the cake was displayed on a tray that looked like a gurney. It supposedly came with a note that said, ‘The Corpse of Amy Winehouse.’


The controversial cake depicted the Rehab artist as a corpse. It showed the late musician with decomposing eyes as well as her tongue sticking out of her mouth.
