happy birthday greg, or is it gerg?

Today is my amazing partner Greg’s 39th birthday. The photo above is the reason that I will no longer out-source the making of his birthday cake. Has something like this happened to you? I know there are entire web sites devoted to it. Describe your favorite “cake wreck” in the comments section.

    I’ve had them write “are” instead of “our”. One time they also repeated a line…the exact same line (I foget what it was). It was ridiculous.

    The punk band, who lived in my basement, wrote a birthday song. Punk style. Started out ‘It’s lonely when you’re old, all alone in the cold’. When the lead guitarist turned 17 I had that phrase put on his birthday cake – odd look from the clerk at the store – but great cake.

    I used to work with a girl named Nichelle and when her going away party cake came it said “Michele with an N not a M”

    Oh, Mike, I’m sorry this happened! Although it will give you a bit of conversation for years to come!

    Happy Birthday Greg!!

    Birthday cakes should never be outsourced unless you need a cartoon character on top of it to appease the monsters. 😉

  6. Happy 39th Birthday to Greg. I hope the cake tasted good.
    🙂 Mandy
