- Story Text: Bakery featuring erotic cakes is a big hit with the women of Santiago, Chile.
A bakery which specializes in erotic cakes and pastries has proved to be a surprise hit with women of Santiago, Chile.
The Erotic Bakery sells cakes with icing depicting penises, bums and vaginas.
"Twin Peaks is a cake with a decorated penis, with a sweet decorative dough that's very nice to eat," said bakery owner Lucio Penaloza. "And the Finish Him is the same but with a hand which is holding it (the penis)."
Pealoza said 90 per cent of his customers were women catering to women-only parties. He said that 15 years ago, when he started the business, customers were ashamed to ask for his cakes. But, he added that this initial embarrassment seems to have dissipated and now people are even coming in with their own ideas and erotic drawings.
He pointed out that women were a lot more at ease with the idea than men, but that the cakes were becoming popular for bachelor parties too.
"Well the biggest orders that we get are mostly from women. There are also orders from men, but the majority are women," he said.
The cakes are available in raspberry, chocolate, truffle, lemon and mango flavours.
