Birthdays are a time to celebrate your life, and what better way to commemorate who you are at a particular moment in time than to have a personalized birthday cake for the occasion?
When I was a kid, I had all kinds of interesting birthday cakes. My mom would work tirelessly making cakes that resembled my favorite characters. From Pikachu to Pocahontas, I had them all.
The thing with a personalized cake, though, is that the dream design doesn't always become a reality - like the time my little sister's pink princess cake came out greyish brown due to a food coloring mix-up.
Such is life!
Sometimes, though, a birthday cake mix-up can be a whole lot funnier than a brown ice cream cone castle with a Barbie doll shoved into the middle... as one woman in England recently found out.
It's me... Mario(?)
This one looks like it might give you ringworms.
"Can you make it out to Marc with a C?"
A control freak's nightmare.
Happy Birthday! Only joking...
No one can bust a move quite like Darnell...
Have you ever felt sorry for an inanimate cake lady before?
"So my wife's had a baby and she loves bacon, do you think you could help?"
Someone cocked up a bit with this one.
This one was supposed to be "cupid's arrow."
Now let's talk about the Mariah Carey cake.
Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, her colleagues got confused.
This could've been me if only I hadn't failed remedial math 🤦♀️ happy birthday Siobhan!! 😘 https://t.co/Ffz69lTRkc— Mariah Carey (@Mariah Carey)1560640341.0
