This is a picture of an Easter Simnel cake, a cake that sounds delicious and is very common in the UK around this time of year. They usually look about like this one but Instagram found it just too risque and suspended the account of the woman who posted it.

Her daughter brought this to wider attention on social media after Instagram refused to restore the account saying that, "We understand that people have different ideas about what’s okay to share on Instagram, but to keep Instagram safe, we require everyone to follow our guidelines." according to Mashable

Fortunately, Instagram decided to take a second look into the matter and, presumably when an actual human laid eyes on the cake for the first time in this process, they restored the account.

Lisa Sarber Aldrich went to her local grocery store to get a birthday cake with a personal message. The cake didn't turn out as well as expected, but Aldrich had the chance to make someone's day much better simply by being polite and kind to the person who had helped her. She shared the story below with the image of the cake on Facebook and the feel-good post now has over 90,000 shares.

Picked out a cake at Meijer. Asked bakery-looking-employee if she could write on it for me. She said she would, and after a long time, she came and presented me with this cake. I looked her In the eye and said thank you before I even looked at the cake. After looking, I nervously laughed and headed to check out- it didn't really matter to me that it looked so bad- I thought people would think it was funny. The cashiers at the self check out didn't think it was so funny though, and called a few more cashiers and a manager over to look, even taking pictures. To my surprise, after they discussed it, one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said "the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her- even though she's not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day."
So I guess the moral of the story is that kindness is important!

Aldrich also shared this quick update addressing a few of the most common comments she received.

1. I am a real person. 2. This is not a Meijer marketing ploy. 3. I never asked for all this publicity, I just wanted...
