Cake Blunders

So...I'm an idiot.

After all the time I spent in making the dang cake for Some Kind of Delicious's birthday yesterday. I realized LAST NIGHT as I was taking some to a friend that I misspelled the ONLY word on the cake. Which word happens to be in the title of my blog. Really Aly? Really? (By the way to save any sort of dignity I had left, I removed the image, sorry!)

So, last night when I was wallowing in self-pity, I remembered a story my friend told me a few years ago. When she was in college, her roommate had just gone through a terrible break-up. My friend went to the bakery to get a cake to cheer her up. She told the girl at the bakery that she wanted them to write, "Someday your prince will come." She said the girl at the bakery looked at her weird. 

When my friend came to pick it up, she died laughing as she looked at the cake and it read, "Someday your prints will come." 

What in the world??? That is hilarious! I wish I could have heard the girl's thoughts as she was decorating that cake. So funny.

It looks like I'm in good company though. Here's some other cake blunders I found online. In fact there's a whole blog dedicated to it! http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/



How embarrassing! I wish there were some way to "spell check" a cake! Good grief.
Pin It!

I had to check it out after you told me, I think that is really funny and if that is the worst thing you ever do then I still think we will keep you. Congrats on the year!! Whatever keeps you sane when you are with my brother is worth doing. XOXO

When I worked at Baskin-Robbins, a woman came to pick up an icecream cake that had been ordered. When she saw it, I guess she began to cry. It read, "Happy Birthday Moo." The woman was not in the best shape and took the message personally. The next day our manager posted a note asking for all those who take cake orders to write more clearly!
