Mum Bakes Son A Good Luck Cake With Accidental Offensive Message
The summer is (finally) over and September is upon us - which means, for many of you, it's off to uni.
And whether you choose to study at home or away, it's always a bittersweet moment for the poor parents and guardians out there. While excited students pack up their belongings and prepare for Fresher's Week, parents frantically scurry to find the perfect goodbye gesture for their sweet darlings who are flying the nest.
Some parents are practical, nipping down to IKEA for the essentials - you know, a tin opener, a chopping board, maybe a corkscrew if they're feeling generous - while others go for the sentimental touch and opt for a framed picture of the family to sit upon your desk.
But if you're not the type of person who appreciates material things, maybe your parents would prefer to bake you a cake with all your favourite fillings. Maybe they'd even pop a nice little message on the top, just like this mother did...
...It's alright, we know what you're thinking.
We know what you're thinking because we thought it too.
At first glance you'd think this cake was anything but nice. I mean, who addresses their child with such profanities?!
I suppose you could say it's not as outrageous as the daughter who presented her 90-year-old mother with a giant squirting penis cake, but still...
However, if you look a little bit closer, you'll realise that the cake isn't offensive at all. Believe it or not, the cake actually reads "Good Luck @ Uni."
We suspect this is a result of a classic cake decorating conundrum. We've all been there. You start off confidently piping, the bigger the better, until you realise you're running out of space. And a lack of space means you're going to have to start cutting corners. Or in this cake, letters - hence the terribly placed @ sign.
The picture of the cursing cake was shared on Reddit by user Yellow-SP alongside a caption: "A friend made this cake for her son last week".
And of course, the post was met with hundreds of hilarious comments from users who thought the exact same thing as we all did.
One user wrote: "Bake him a cake. Give him a slap on the back. Then kick that c**t off to uni."
Another commented: "When your head says 'Good Luck @ Uni' but your heart says 'Get the fuck out of my house'."
Poor old mum. The thought was there, and I bet she probably never meant to call her beloved son a c**t. We're not sure how her son would feel about his parting gift, though. Maybe he'd have just preferred a bottle opener.
