    A baker has been slammed for making a cake depicting the 9/11 terror attacks.

    Thomas Kienbauer, the owner of the Alexander patisserie in Vienna, Austria, crafted the cake to show two planes crashing into the sides of the Twin Towers.

    But as the baker finds himself taking heat for his controversial design, he has insisted that he made the cake to comment on his dissatisfaction with the Austrian government and 'corrupt' politics.

    One tower has been painted with the colors of the Social Democrats, labeled 'SPO', while the other shows the other governing party, the People's Party, labeled 'OVP', RT reported.

    But while Kienbauer was pictured proudly grinning alongside his cakes, others weren't quite so impressed and branded the creation 'offensive' and 'unbelievable'.

    'Awful comparison!' one Austrian tweeter commented. 'When one understands that he depicted 9/11 that claimed so many lives.'

    Another added: 'This cake is absolutely outrageous! It is an insult to America.'

    'What on earth was he thinking?' one Fox reader wrote. 'Beyond distasteful, sick.'

    But others supported the baked scene.

    'Freedom of expression should be upheld,' one wrote to RT. 'This demeans no one. It's a cake of political expression. Hopefully it tastes good.'

    it's stupid but you're still an idiot if you're outraged by this.

    I'm shocked, Austrians are well known for their sensivity.

    Are those decorative cakes even edible? Half the time they look like they're cardboard.

    A bakery I use has a shit cake.
    It looks like a big, tall, coiled turd. Complete with plastic flies and little bits of toilet paper stuck to it.

    Many times that fondant on the outside is pretty gross

    You can peel it off, but who wants to get into all of that. Plus, you know half a dozen people have had their hands on it assembling and moving it.

    A lot of them are. They look impressive, but their inner structure is often wood, cardboard, metal and rice krispie treats. I learned all this from watching Cake Boss by the way. :grad:

    He was forced to bake that by law. Even though the baker's children and parrot died in the south tower collapse, the customer, Mohammad el akbar, complained that his civil rights were being violated. The ACLU stepped in. Problem solved forever. End rant.

    Free speech is not there to protect the thing you love, but to protect the thing you hate.

    This. I've never had an expensive decorative cake that actually tasted good.
    I guess it's impossible to keep the cake moist long enough to get all the fancy fondant and bells and whistles on.
    That said, sure this 9/11 cake guy is an asshole, but so what? Lots of people are assholes.
    He wanted to elicit a response. And guess what?
    Mission accomplished
