Woman’s Online Cake Order Goes Wrong Due To Unclear Instructions; Netizens Say, “Happy Birthday To Stick!”

A woman’s online cake order for her sister’s birthday turned into a meme-worthy incident! She placed an order online via Swiggy and wrote an instruction to send a “Happy Birthday stick” along with the cake. The bakery, however, instead of sending a cake topper, as expected, sent a cake with “Happy Birthday Stick” written on it! She shared this hilarious incident online and hundreds of people commented on it saying they have faced something similar as well!

A woman took to Instagram to share a funny incident she experienced recently. She shared a reel that showed how she ordered a bento cake via Swiggy to surprise her little sister at midnight. While adding instructions on the app, she asked them to “Please send with the happy birthday stick.” It seemed like a fairly straightforward instruction. However, she and her sister were in for a surprise because the bakery ended by writing, “Happy Birthday Stick” on the cake instead!

In her post, she explained how she was unaware that the stick is actually called a cake topper and this might have confused the bakery. She then went on to explain how she wrote a whole sentence and didn’t give vague details. He mentioned in her post that the bakery people “should have at least read properly and understood.” However, she was a sport and laughed off the incident and even added the hilarious “Moye Moye” song in the background of the reel.
