It's not every day you get given a Marie Curie cake...First off, let it be known that we love this Marie Curie cake. Curie is an incredible and accomplished scientist, who has paved the way for women in STEM subjects - and it's amazing that her image has been immortalised in cake-form.
What's not so amazing, however, is receiving a Marie Curie cake while really just being a fan of Mariah Carey! This is exactly what's happened in an English workplace. On Twitter, Harriet - the birthday girl Siobhan's cousin - writes:
My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey birthday cake. They misunderstood, and is the cake they made her instead. It’s Marie Curie, looking very festive. pic.twitter.com/LMHJnMATqD— Harriet Alida Lye (@harrietalida) June 14, 2019
"My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey cake. They misunderstood, and [this] is the cake they made her instead. It's Marie Curie, looking very festive."As you can imagine, Twitter has gone wild - with hundreds of thousands of people laughing along at the mix-up. Mariah Carey herself reached out to offer Siobhan some birthday wishes!
Happy birthday to Siobhan from Baking Heaven, and here's to fantastic cake confusion - it keeps us entertained anyway!
