This just takes the cake!

(Please pardon the punny title and read on)

For those in far-off places or otherwise not versed in such things, Wegmans is large and growing grocery chain originating out of Rochester, NY.

On to the good stuff:

So apparently you can email an order to the Wegman's bakery for cakes, etc... including what message you want on the cake.

The cake below was supposed to be a mix of English and Italian, but the staff apparently knew no Italian. The problem? Wegman's email system also apparently did not recognize some of the proprietary Microsoft HTML extensions!

The cake

UPDATE I guess I wasn't totally clear. I was not the one that ordered the cake. I know the person that did (former coworker in upstate NY). She shared the story of the mishap and sent the picture to another former coworker. Given what I know of her and her family and the location, all aspects are plausible.

The email likely feeds directly into their computer that runs the food-grade equivalent of an inkjet printer to place the message on the cake, so it is possible that the message made it onto the cake because someone did not check it on the computer first.
