The following list of cake writing disasters may inspire you to support literacy programs near you.
The mistake of writing down the specific instructions in addition to the actual message is bad enough. The word “underneath” has been murdered, split in two with the end chopped off.
Was this really hard to understand? Does anyone walk into a party and say, “Happy 50th Birthday! Oh, and, by the way, comedy/tragedy masks.”
So, there are, apparently, at least two people in the world who agree on an alternate spelling of “underneath” and also think it is a good idea to write “under neat that” on a cake. Notice the sprinkles are also spelled out in writing rather than being, you know, actual sprinkles.
Apparently, he or she was told to write nothing on the cake. Maybe, they thought “Nothing” was the occasion of celebration? Sometimes, you just want cake for no reason in particular. Happy Nothing to you.
There are so many things wrong with this cake that it’s hard to know where to begin. Congrats has a strange consonant ending and is now a possessive. Underneath once again has a strange spelling. Would I find this spelling on Urban Dictionary? The “and” has a very confusing placement, and I’m not sure why Don or Dan’s name is in quotes. Also, there are naked babies with mohawks riding carrots.
Would there be any reason to write that second line? Is it a command as in, “Be as small as possible” or a statement “(You are) as small as possible”?
How can someone who can write words so neatly not understand them?
“Bon Anniversaire!” Instructions probably should have spelled this one out for the bakery, but, on the other hand, there is Google Translate.
Is it possible that some of these cake writers just have a sense of humor and are playing pranks, hoping for viral photos?
Is that request for the birthday recipient or for all of the guests at the party? Where’s the giant birthday card?
These seniors are graduating and don’t want to think about English homework instructions.
Now, the birthday recipient will wonder what sort of special picture he or she received as an unusual gift … not a framed picture, mind you, just a picture on a flashdrive.
Well, that’s one way of putting it on there.
Did the person think “White Big” was a nickname? The person ordering the cake just wanted “Happy Birthday” written in big letters.
Ah well. The moral of this story is, be very careful when ordering your cake.
