18-year-old Isaac Banda has taken social media by storm due to his reaction to his disappointing cake

It's hard to be “down with the kids” but this mum’s mix-up has gone viral thanks to her teen son.

When Isaac Banda from Texas turned 18 in December last year, he asked his mum Melissa for a particular cake to celebrate. However, while the Minions admirer fancied a cake in the design of one of his favourite cartoon characters he was presented with another, that even though equally yellow, he wasn't such a big fan. Isaac took to social media to share screen grabs of the original text message conversation with his mum on Twitter.
“Need a cake with a minion on it”, he wrote.   “OK I’ll see what I can do”, his mum replied.
But when his birthday came around, Isaac was given a large cake with the face of SpongeBob Squarepants instead. This funny picture from his birthday shows Isaac holding the cake in front of him with a rather disappointed look on his face. This photo has since been shared thousands of times, with hundreds of people finding the whole thing hilarious “That’s a face of pure disappointment”, one wrote. “You look soooo disappointed haha”, another added.
