A New Zealand woman has received a poo shaped cake with the message "eat s—t" at her engagement party after a disagreement with the cake maker.

Micaela Harris already had a cake for her December engagement party but said her sister was nice enough to organise a second one.

But things didn't quite go to plan for Micaela's sister, who ended up getting into a disagreement with Emma McDonald, the owner of Oh Cakes.

In retaliation, McDonald decided to give the soon-to-be bride a special cake and a piece of her mind.

Underneath what Harris recalled was "magnificent wrapping" sat an excrement-shaped cake with a flag sticking out of it that read "eat s—t".

The cake was opened in front of more than 100 guests who couldn't believe what they saw.

"It was a weird situation," Harris told Stuff.co.nz, "at the time my sister didn't even know what was going on."

But Harris would not let the cake destroy her party.

"I think it [the disagreement] was taken too far. As a business owner you come across customers you don't like but you have got to take the highs and the lows, got to suck it up."

Oddly enough, cake maker McDonald seems to be relishing in her newfound fame, posting media coverage of her poo cake on her Facebook page.

"Nothing really negative that I've seen apart from a few who didn't read and understand it properly. Seems to be popping up everywhere . . . business opportunities have been thrown my way as well."
