The mother of a TikTok influencer recently enjoyed “the funniest birthday ever” after a baker took her birthday cake instructions way too literally.
Tefi Pessoa, who has 1.6 million followers on the social media site, says the receptionist at her mother’s place of employment in Miami recently ordered a birthday cake over the phone. When the person taking the order asked what she’d like written on it, the receptionist replied, “Just ‘happy birthday’ is perfect. Thank you.”
When the cake was later unveiled during a lunchtime birthday party, well-wishers were surprised to find the baker – who works at a local Publix grocery store – had written on the cake, “Just happy birthday is perfect thank you.” Pessoa says, “They were unable to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ because everyone was just dying from laughter." A rep for Publix has declined to comment on the story.
