The apparent hostile takeover of the group left followers shocked - with many taking to an existing posts to try and work out what was going on when the warning bells first started ringing.
Said one: ‘I am now concerned about the group, these ARE NOT the Admins from 3 days ago.’
The same member later added: ‘The former admins have now been kicked from the group.’
After a tense 12 hours, it seems the crisis had been sorted with the original admin staff finally winning back control of their page.
Says admin staffer Nat: ‘Thank you for your patience, after a couple of long hours I can assure you that we are back to normal, Lisa and I would like to thank you for sticking around and for those who reported the admin who took over for a minute.
‘Thank you all for the love and keep posting your wonderful pie creations.’
She added: ‘To quickly explain Facebook has sent an email stating our accounts were deactivated in error, whilst all Admins accounts were deactivated in error some random swooped in and took over and archived the group (for who knows what reason).’
The news was met with a big sigh of relief from followers who couldn’t believe the brazen takeover attempt by the random follower.
Said one: ‘Thank god. I was awake during the night and saw what happened. Welcome back.’
Said another: ‘Wow, saw it unfold late last night here in Perth! Soooo glad admin got control back. Thank you for your efforts. I love this group!’
Added one more: ‘I saw that this morning and wanted to cry. So glad you’re back up and running.’
