 BBC Presenter, Aaron Heslehurst mistakenly reveals that Mich Turner, a world-renowned cake maker, baked a $31000 cake for a Nigerian President.







In an August 10 2016 tweet posted by Aaron, who is often seen on presenting World Business Report on the BBC World Television, the Australian initially tweeted that the cake cost $31.3M instead of $31.3K.

“Sharing cake [with] world famous cake maker Mich Turner. Most expensive cake she’s made - $31.3 for Nigerian [President],” he tweeted.
 
It turns out that the tweet contained a factual mistake; as the most expensive cake made by Mich Turner actually made for an unnamed Nigerian President, but at $31,000. The tweet was promptly deleted by the presenter.
The tweet soon went viral, especially after Nigerians caught wind of it, asking the presenter to name which of the country's [Former] President bought the cake.
Apparently, even the BBC presenter did not know, posting on twitter that Mich Turner did not mention who she sold the cake to.
 

The Australian then apologized with another tweet, after it appeared that the content of the previous tweet kept spreading like wildfire.
He tweeted: "To our wonderful friends in #Nigeria please forgive me [for] my STUPID mistake in the cake price. I should have seen mistake much sooner. I'm sorry."
It remains unknown which Nigerian President spent almost ₦10million on 'ordinary cake,' as no mention was made of any past or present leader, even when the question was asked.
Mich Turner is arguably the world's most respected baker, and the head of Little Venice Cake Company - one of the world’s leading authorities in cake design.
She has created cakes for celebrities and international royalty including Her Majesty The Queen, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, and David Beckham.
