Last year, Melin Jones bought a customized cake for her daughter's birthday at Walmart. There was a miscommunication between the mom and a Walmart employee that resulted in a hilarious 'birthday cake accident.' That accident was immortalized in a Facebook post that's making the rounds online, largely thanks to the child's inimitable reaction.
THAT FACE. Have you ever seen an expression convey disappointment so evocatively? Yeah, I didn't think so.
Jones provided the backstory on Facebook, writing,
Liz’s nickname is Lizard . I got her a cake at Walmart & asked the lady to write “happy Birthday Lizard” I did not look at it . Don’t ask me why 🙈As I’m unloading the car I look quickly at it and notice the lady didn’t hear “Lizard “ she heard loser . So here’s my baby & her loser cake 😭😭🤣🤣🤣 It’s funny now but I was maddddd. She did get a new cake !
