Why Is There a Blind Girl on This Birthday Cake?
Autocorrect? More like auto-incorrect.
A woman in Scotland ordered a cake to celebrate her daughter’s 21st birthday. Nice, right? Well, here’s the rub.
After placing the order, she sent a text to the baker — who’s a friend — asking that a figurine of a blonde girl be placed on top in honor of her daughter, who’s blonde. Unfortunately, autocorrect had other ideas and changed “blonde” to “blind,” resulting in this unusual delicacy posted by the girl’s sister:

The birthday girl’s sister said the whole thing is good for a chuckle.
“Thankfully we all saw the funny side of it, including my mum’s friend,” she said. “We were going to take it off the top because we weren’t sure if it would be seen as offensive but decided to keep it in the end. We all just laughed about it.”
