Making a custom order can be the perfect gift, but only if the creator actually writes what you want! There are seemingly quite a few sellers out there who have taken some liberties with what they'll write on a shirt or a cake. Getting a custom birthday cake for someone is usually a sweet surprise. The birthday celebrator gets to have a professional-looking cake to take photos with and commemorate the occasion. But as you can see from the numerous examples below, sometimes a simple request for…

'She made a big scene': Woman mocks coworkers' vegan lifestyle, then gets upset that coworker won't eat her "vegan" food

A birthday cake is dividing this workplace. That's because of two coworkers who can't see eye to eye about food. People eat all sorts of diets for all sorts of reasons. For example, if you go to the doctor and your cholesterol is high, they might tell you to stop eating eggs. Or if you want to have more vegetables and less red meat, you might start eating fish in place of burgers. Everyone eats in their own unique ways, and has their own specific likes and dislikes. But for some reason, people…

'Baker [...] misread the customer text asking for an Elmo cake and instead made an emo cake': 30 Funny food and cringe cake mishaps

Here's the deal with all baked goods: as long as it tastes good, it shouldn't matter what it looks like. Ok, maybe that's not true, but that's what I tell myself every time I attempt to bake something for my family, which I have done on only one or two occasions. Trust me. They do not want to eat whatever I bake. It's always too sugary, too bland, or somehow too salty even if there's next to no salt in there. Fortunately for them, this is why I rarely bake anything. Whenever I do decide to take…

'Congratalations on your weeding': 25+ Freshly baked cake mistakes

We get distracted by the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts. That's especially true with cakes, which can look stunning on the outside (thanks to fondant or other technically-edible decorations) but taste bland and dry on the inside. In my book, no matter how unfortunate the cake turns out , if it tastes good, it's still a win. Everyone has had a few baking mishaps . There was that time when we were all stuck indoors for a while back in 2020, and a lot of us got into baking brea…

'They [were] using the cake and ice cream as a diversion': Waiter stops would-be dine and dashers in their tracks by putting all the attention on them

Do people really enjoy being sung “Happy Birthday” by the staffers in restaurants ? Maybe there are two types of people: the kind who really love birthday attention and want to celebrate with everyone around, and the kind who shy away from big displays of attention, like getting the waitstaff to sing for you at restaurants. We've all seen it play out. A family will come in to dine, and one person will find the waiter in private and tell them to surprise the birthday person with cake. That often…

I'd be cringing so hard if I was the person behind this birthday mixup … but mistakes happen. Celebrating your birthday is a great time to gather your friends and family members to celebrate your big day. Another year old and wiser!

25+ Cake Fails That Ruined Graduations, Birthdays, and Weddings

Who knew that a cake really can make or break a party? Seeing the instructions you made for the order on the final product has got to be infuriating upon delivery. I guess you got exactly what you ordered, though. Then, of course, there's the lazy misspelling (i.e. “congrations” instead of “congratulations”). However, upon further reflection, one has to wonder why we don't just say “congrations” in life. I mean, it sounds better, it's easier to spell, and who has the energy for all those excess…

Birthday parties are definitely one of the most fun parts of childhood, whether you were blowing out your own candles, or visiting someone else's house to give them gifts. But in all the commotion of parties, do kids really care about or notice their birthday cake? I don't think so, but this one woman…

AITA for not wanting to accept my "birthday gift" from my boss?

'[My boss] sent me home for being rude': Employee rejects workplace birthday party, but boss insists

In a divisive post, one employee asked if he was actually the bad guy for spoiling his own workplace birthday party . In the r/AmItheA**hole subreddit, people usually decisively call the OP an a**hole or not. But in this case, commenters are split on the etiquette involved in this dude's scenario. The OP wrote that he's having a rough few weeks – expensive car troubles, a pounding headache, and because he forgot to take his birthday off work, he had to go in. Once he got there, he felt depresse…
