Costco’s Latest Cake Fail Will Have You Literally Laughing Out Loud

Costco’s Latest Cake Fail Will Have You Literally Laughing Out Loud


When a shopper gave specific instructions to Costco for a cake with no designs or decorations she expected to receive just that. What she got however was the funniest image on a cake we have EVER seen!

The woman gave what she thought were very simple and detailed instructions on what she wanted for her cake. In fact all she wanted was some red piping along the outline of the cake. That’s it. Nothing more and nothing less.

Sharing the images on Reddit, the photos show specific instructions for a half sheet white Costco cake that look pretty self explanatory to us.

“No writing, no designs,” they wrote on the back of the order sheet. “Only request: red frosting on perimeter for top/bottom.”

In fact to help them along, the woman even sketched a quick drawing of what the cake would look like once completed. So whoever filled the order at Costco did EXACTLY that. Look.

OH EM GEE!! Tell us that’s not the most hilarious thing you’ve ever ever seen! The cake decorator actually DREW that rough sketch ONTO the cake. We’re dying!!

So were the commenters on Reddit apparently. Here are some of the comments left on the post:

“I’m crying laughing,” said one person.

 “I’ve been giggling over this for like five minutes,” another added.

“Honestly, I’m pretty impressed by how close the drawing is to the figure you drew,” wrote a third.

“You can’t make this s*hit up!”

Is this the best cake fail you’ve seen in a while or what!
