Whoops! A mom in Scotland ordered a cake for her daughter Laura’s 21st birthday, but after an autocorrect fail, she received a cake with a blind girl as the topper instead of a blonde one.
“My mum ordered a cake for my sisters bd n asked for a blond girl on top but it autocorrected to blind n we got this,” her other daughter, Emily, tweeted on Sunday, Aug. 16, along with a photo of the elegant white cake topped with a blind brunette girl in a red dress and white cane.
The snafu came following the mom’s adorably polite and stressed text request to her friend, who was making the cake.
“Sorry Moira was out and my phone went out of charge so just saw this. For got about it so stressed!! Plain white with white balls dotted with a grey ribbon and bow (I can buy them if you want save time). Would you be able to put a wee blind girl in top if not it’s fine x,” a screenshot of the iPhone message to “Moira mobile” read, revealing where the order went awry.
“My mum’s friend baked the cake and my mum at last minute texted her to ask for a blonde girl on top,” Emily later explained to BuzzFeed. “The text must have autocorrected to ‘blind girl’ and when my mum went to collect it she was wondering why it wasn’t blonde. They then realised what had happened after checking the text and decided to leave it on as was funny. Hope no one is offended.”
Snafu aside, happy birthday, Laura!
