Cat Cake


Oh, you had a sheet cake at your graduation party? Let's guess: Half vanilla, half chocolate with "Congratulations!" written in frosting? Maybe a little frosting diploma too? News flash: Your cake is nothing.

At least not compared to the (accidental) grad cake game of Laura Gambrel.

See, Carol Gambrel of Zionsville, Ind., wanted to purchase her daughter a cake to celebrate her graduation from Indiana University (yay, Laura!). So Carol went to Marsh, where she asked for a cake featuring Laura's face and a graduation cap drawn on her head. The grocer misheard and wrote, "Try to draw a cat on the head."

"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," Carol told Good Morning America. "When I went to pick it up at the store, I could not stop laughing. I told them not to scrape it off."

(Note: Carol did not react by screaming at the baker, "I'm losing my s--t! When you have a cat, you have a cat. If you have cap, you have cap." Or by threatening to blow up the grocery store from Mars and upload the whole thing to Facebook. Good job, Carol. You act like a human being.)

Laura posted the picture on Reddit, where it went viral (as all cats do). One commenter noted that they liked this version of the cake way better, to which Laura (or bluesberry, as she's known on Reddit) responded, "me too."

Meow three, Laura. Happy Catuation!
