Graduation Cake Goof Up: Cat in Place of Cap
Laura Gambrel wanted just a small celebration for graduating from Indiana University in May; after all, she was going on to grad school in the fall to get her Masters of Public Affairs. Since Fathers Day and her sister’s birthday all fell at about the same time, they thought they should celebrate the whole shebang with a cake sporting her smiling face on it. As a last minute idea, the mother told the baker to put a graduation cap on her daughter’s head.
“My mom thought it would be funny to get a face cake,” said Laura, as reported by ABC News. “She got it and she asked them to draw a little cap on. But when she went to pick it up later, she saw that there was a cat on it, and started laughing hysterically and said, ‘No, that’s not what I meant at all.’”
But the cat was too good to remove. I mean, who wants to remove a cat once they get comfortable somewhere? So they left the picture of the “graduation cat” on her head.
“When I went to pick it up at the store, I could not stop laughing,” said Carol Gambrel, Laura’s mother. “I told them not to scrape it off. It was one of those young kids behind the counter and he seemed a little distracted with someone else ordering a cake a foot away from us. We went through the school colors and everything, and I said, ‘Oh, could you draw a cap on her head?’ And he gives me this look.”
“We were all just cracking up,” Carol Gambrel said. “Who would have thought she’d get her 15 minutes with a cat cake?”
The cat cake has garnished 29,000 votes on Reddit, proving that there are few things that couldn’t be made better by the presence of a cat.Graduation Cake Goof Up: Cat in Place of Cap by Daniel June
