Bloomfield Township police say the woman accused of drop-kicking a Kroger birthday cake last weekend is now facing disorderly conduct charges.

We're told she's been issued a ticket to appear in court.

Police say the woman went to the bakery section of the Kroger on Telegraph to pick up a special "Superman V. Batman" birthday cake.

According to police, the woman was not satisfied with the cake, and went back behind the bakery counter to fix it herself. When employees told the woman she couldn't be back there, she reportedly became upset.

That's when police say she took the cake to the front of the store and "proceeded to 'drop kick' it." We're told pieces of cake were then everywhere in the bakery store.

As the woman left, she also kicked over a wet floor sign.

Officers spoke with the woman, who told police she was upset about the poor quality of the decoration. She said she went behind the counter because employees told her she could, and denied kicking the cake, saying it fell out of her hand.

A witness told police she threw the cake to the ground, stepped on it several times and yelled, "They f***ing ruined my seven-year-old's birthday cake!"
