If the "cat" fits... wear it!

That's presumably what staff at an Indiana bakery say — after they confused the word with "cap" and inked a cute kitty on a graduate's portrait cake.

Carol Gambrel, 59, was left in fits of laughter when, picking up the tasty treat, she saw a cat sitting on top of her daughter Laura's face.

Title abbreviated due to length: Bakery's hilarious error sees 'cat' and not 'cap' placed on graduate's head on celebration portrait cake

I heard this on Sirius Radio (listening to Special Report's Grapevine). I've been giggling about it ever since!

The Mom got a cake worth more than all the “caps” in the world. Hopefully she’ll frame a picture of this and put it on the wall as a reminder of how even a “mistake” can be priceless.

At least the lady who ordered the cake could understand human error and get a laugh. how many other people would run to a lawyer?

I had a job in college, laying out and setting type for sale circulars, Piggly Wiggly. They’d gotten in a shipment of rutabagas for a great price at the last minute. They told me to just put it in there tiny, Rutabagas, and price per pound. It ended up with “Tiny Rutabagas” in print, and they sold really well, lol. Might be still selling tiny rutabagas to this day for all I know.

We took a trip to New Orleans last year & actually saw a Piggly Wiggly!

At our local grocery, we always get a kick out of a sign over the carrots: carrots, baby. We always picture Mike Myers saying, “Carrots, Baby!” for some odd reason.

Their merch can be very regional, so being from away you might not grasp what all the fuss is about, you’d have to livr there for a while to get it. But, people do love “their” Piggly Wiggly, fiercely loyal.

It’s not so much what it’s supposed to say; it’s NOT supposed to say “under neat that”.

Picture some one coming into the baker and saying “I Want it to say Happy Birthday Woodman” and underneath that “You’re Older Than Dirt” and you get a cake that says “Happy Birthday Woodman, under neat that, You’re Older than Dirt”

I believe it’s only supposed to have lines 1 and 3; the middle line was instructions (and mis-spelled):

Best Wishes Suzanne

(underneath that)

We Will Miss You

*sorry, even after explanations it STILL took me a while to figure it out, so I thought I would post in case someone pops in that’s as dense as me!!

Reminds me of when our nephew was visiting years ago. It was his 14th birthday so we went to the store and found a wonderful cake someone had ordered for a girl named Shirley. They hadn’t picked it up so we bought it half price.

Another time we had a house guest (a rather weird musician who wanted everyone to call him Sick) so I made him a cat box cake. Google that.

Error aside, even if the order was really for a cat on her head, it’s not a very good one. Even the intended cap might have looked just as bad. They should have told her that adding any item there wouldn’t look so good.
