It took me a second, but make sure you read the story under the picture.
Keep in mind this actually really did happen. 😀
This cake is for someone who was moving from an insurance claims office.
Some employees had a “going away” party for a lady at their BCBS Little Rock claim office.
One of the supervisors called a Wal-Mart and ordered the cake.
He told them to write: “Best Wishes Suzanne” and underneath that write “We will miss you”.
As the picture shows, it didn’t quite turn out right.

From Snopes.com, here are a few other cake errors. Funny. 😀
[The New Yorker, 1942]
There’s a married couple whose birthdays fall on the same date, which they naturally celebrate pretty lavishly. Just before their last birthday, the lady stopped in at her neighborhood bakeshop and ordered a cake with “Happy Birthdays” on it. “You see, two of us are having a birthday,” she explained to the clerk. “So I want it to say ‘Happy Birthdays’ — plural.”
The clerk wrote the instructions down carefully, and sure enough, when the cake was delivered, it had “Happy Birthdays Plural” on it.
For my 40th birthday, my husband decided to surprise me with a birthday cake from our local bakery. “In the middle please print “Happy Birthday Nita'”, he instructed them over phone. Then, ‘You’re not getting older’ on the top and ‘You’re getting better’ on the bottom.
When he went to pick it up, he discovered that they had decorated the cake with the words exactly as he had said them. “Happy Birthday Nita, you’re not getting older at the top, you’re getting better on the bottom.” 😀
