A real life Fru T. Bunn baker who specialises in making edible gingerbread sex objects has agreed to pay compensation for sexual harassment to two young female workers after he gave them gingerbread penises topped with whipped cream.
The biscuits - designed to look like erect manhoods - were finished off with dollops of icing sugar, which was supposed to simulate ejaculation, a court in Salzburg, Austria, was told.
Two assistants at the bakery claimed the cookies were intended to sexually intimidate them and demanded 2,000 GBP each in compensation.
The baker, 47, claims he was simply showing the assistants a new product so they would know how to promote it to the shop's customers.
"We have a very different clientele, these cakes are really popular with stag nights and hen nights and other similar events. These clients like our sexy products and they use them in their own lives as a bit of fun. It's no place for prudes," he explained.
"This item has gone on to become one of our very best sellers," he added.
Judges at the Salzburg labour court adjourned the case after being told of there out of court settlement.
The pair agreed to take the payment, but the court heard that they have since been fired from their jobs.
