A woman celebrating her 30th birthday party attempted to smash her birthday cake, but she didn't know that there was a wooden dowel in the cake.

The dowel was inserted into the cake but the cake designer to keep the cake from falling over.

Luckily, the dowel appeared to connect with the woman's forehead and NOT her eye. This could have been REALLY ugly.

I just hope that the next time this woman attempts to smash a cake she proceeds with caution.
