Cutting a cake with a sweet message piped upon it is the simplest yet the best part everyone looks forward to, during a birthday party. It's also a common practice to give a handful of instructions to the baker, on how to pipe the sweet nothings on the cake. But, what if the instructions you give appear as the words on the cake, instead of your birthday wish or message?
Looks like it's nothing new and often makes way for laughter-filled birthday or special occasion memories. And if the cake turns out to be delicious, the who ordered might even forgive the baker!
'Happy birthday Ramadan Mubarak!' This was the message on the cake, which had its photo shared by Twitter user Yasmin, with a sad emoticon. However, the stories and comments it invited had enough fodder for a funny memory that can last a lifetime!
When one person replied 'I personally know a Ramadan Mubarak from school,' another went on to say 'I'm waiting for the birthday of Easter Sunday.' Yet another even said 'Can't wait for his sister 'Eid's' birthday.'
Yet another Twitter user recently shared his story as another similar post. “Having ordered a cake from Layer’s I requested they send change for Rs 2000/- (conversation was in Urdu). This is what was delivered!” The user Javaid wrote sharing the picture of a cake on which it is written ‘Bring change of 2000..’ The cake artist managed to ‘carefully’ write the instruction on the cake thinking that it was the message to be written!
Twitter user Mehreen Mubasheer apparently asked the baker to write ‘Happy 1 month’ neatly; and that is exactly what they wrote on the cake. One user asked the baker to send a birthday stand and he got the cake with the message ‘Happy Birthday Stand’ written on it.
Pages dedicated to cake fails
Did you know that many social media platforms even have pages dedicated to cakes gone wrong? Here's one of the cakes shared on such a page:
A few months ago, bakers from across the world had also shared their best baking disasters on Instagram, which turned out to inspire many aspiring bakers.
On a lighter note, regardless of whether a cake looks good or have the right lines, if it turns out to be delicious, the one who ordered it might consider forgiving the baker. Afterall, who doesn't like a funny story?
