Occasionally we find ourselves misinterpreting text messages because we read them in a different way than the sender intended. Fortunately, most such mix-ups don’t do lasting damage.
On Friday, however, a man ordered a cake from a bakery in Nagpur, but what was supposed to be a simple order soon turned into a facepalm moment after the patissier apparently misunderstood the client’s instructions.
Sharing a photo of the cake in question, Twitter user Kapil Wasnik (@kapildwasnik) wrote, “So I ordered a cake from a renowned bakery in Nagpur, through #Swiggy. In the order details I mentioned “Please mention if the cake contains egg”. I am speechless after receiving the order 👇🏼”.
Written in block letters in white across the chocolate topping of the cake were the words ‘Contain Egg’. The tweet gathered over 58,000 likes in just one day and prompted others to share similar anecdotes.

Among the many responses that followed, a Twitter user shared, “I once ordered a cake for a birthday gathering with 50+ people. Imagine my horror and embarrassment when the cake showed up with ‘Don’t send cutlery’ written on it. The price you pay to save the environment 🙄😰”.

Usually the bakery writes the message on a white chocolate tile. I asked for “HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS” and the bakery made a note: TILE. We still laugh about it. pic.twitter.com/wepSizyR2O

Me: Please put the Happy Birthday “Pin Board” on top of cake.

Had a similar experience. There were about 500 ways to screw up the spelling of “Congratulations”, this wouldn’t have been in those 500.https://t.co/SJl9ZoMIsz

Another Twitter user recalled that they received a cake with the words “NIL” written on it after his aunt ordered a cake in Delhi and wrote “NIL” in the column that asked if there was any message they wanted to put on the cake.
