Mistakes are bound to happen. But this one got the attention of Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey.
A UK-based woman was asked what she wanted on her birthday cake, and said she wanted a Mariah Carey-themed one. But her request was misunderstood and the finished product had the face of Nobel prize winning scientist Marie Curie. The cake was edible, but it didn’t meet the woman’s expectations.
The funny blunder came to people’s attention after the woman’s cousin – author Harriet Lye – tweeted about it.
My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey birthday cake. They misunderstood, and is the cake they made her instead. It’s Marie Curie, looking very festive. pic.twitter.com/LMHJnMATqD
