It's one thing to crash someone's party.
It's a whole 'nother thing to make off with their pricey, custom birthday cake!
But that's what happened to Paris Hilton during the first of her multiple 30th birthday bashes in L.A. on Tuesday night...
Paz, an uninvited guest who managed to sneak in with his friend to the Moulin Rouge-themed bash, wrote a detailed post on Facebook, (complete with photos) of how he stole one of her two custom cakes after a waiter told him they'd probably toss it.
"I hated the idea of something so awesome and expensive going to waste," the rapper and musician tells me exclusively.
Well, today, Lucid, the absinthe that was used in the liquor-infused confection (which was made by Hansen's bakery on their behalf) released a self-promotional statement.
"It is very unfortunate that someone stole the cake from Paris' birthday party," the company said. "We had the cake designed especially for her with Lucid in the batter and a beautiful representation of Lucid's artwork on it, which she requested to meet the Moulin Rouge theme of her party. We only wish that guests could have tried her delicious cake."
Well, some other people will still get a piece, according to Paz. "I'm bringing it a homeless shelter on Skid Row. There are too many people in this city who don't get to eat. They should get to enjoy something awesome," he tells me.
(Because liquor-infused three day old cake is what every homeless person wants, right?)
Paris' rep had no comment on Cakegate, but a source close to the birthday girl says, "She thinks it's so pathetic that someone feels the need to get attention like that."
Not that she's probably missing that cake too much. She scored yet another cake during her NYC fete at Lavo last night, and is celebrating her 30th yet again back in L.A. on Saturday at Beacher's Madhouse.
