'Happy birthday loser!': 2-year-old's epic cake fail originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
She was in shock for a moment, but once that wore off all Melin Jones could do was laugh.
Because really, what else are you going to do when your two-year-old's birthday cake reads "Happy Birthday Loser"?
Little Elizabeth Jones, goes by the nickname Liz. The family who loves her calls her "Lizard." And that was the confusion when it came to the cake the Bonne Terre, Missouri mom ordered from a local Walmart.
"I asked the lady behind the counter if she could write 'Happy Birthday Lizard' on it. She said 'sure,' grabbed the cake and a few minutes later gave it back. I did not look at it when she gave it back. No real reason, I was kind of in a hurry and I guess I just thought there would be no problems with something so simple," Jones told "Good Morning America."
She did notice a funny look from the cashier, she said, but figured it was about the "Lizard" nickname.
It was when she got home, she said, Jones saw the cake said "loser."
"I had to get a picture to my husband ASAP because I knew he wouldn’t believe me," she said.
