A bakery has claimed that it has received both orders and death threats after “sending” Amber Heard a cake resembling Johnny Depp’s severed finger.
Depp’s injured digit is one of the headline-hitting subjects that has been discussed amid the former couple’s ongoing defamation trial.
After Aquaman’s Aquaman star, Depp, sued Heard, 36, for $50 million. In an op-ed she published in 2018, the Aquaman star called herself a “public figure representing domestic violence” for The Washington Post. Depp repeatedly denied allegations that he had been physically violent towards his ex-wife.
Heard is countersuing for $100,000,000 – claiming that she was only ever violent towards Depp, 50, in self defense or defense of her younger sibling, per NBC News.
During the trial, Depp claimed that his ex-wife severed the top of his right middle finger by throwing a glass vodka bottle at him during a heated exchange in Australia back in 2015.
According to court documents filed in Heard’s favor by his legal team, Depp is accused of injuring his finger when he hit “a hard plastic telephone against the wall”, according to Insider.
Fans have debated who is right and taken sides.
A bakery is now revealing the negative reactions it received after sending a cake to Heard that featured Depp’s finger.
Dessert Boxes, an Australian baking company, shared a TikTok video of their unique cake. It also included a detachable finger as well as a miniature vodka bottle.

“We’re sending Amber Heard a dessert box,” an employee says in the video. “We cut off the finger with a vodka bottle – throw that in for her too – and we’ll send Johnny Depp this piece [the finger].”
The post’s caption asks: “Will she like it?”
After receiving more than 570,000 views, the response to the video has been… mixed.
In fact, Dessert Boxes revealed to Indy100 in a statement: “We’ve received a lot of emails from fans overseas wanting to purchase from us and support us. We’ve also received emails from people threatening to kill us.”
