Melin Jones ordered a birthday cake from Walmart and asked that the cake say, "Happy Birthday, Lizard". Lizard is her daughter, Elizabeth's nickname. When Melin picked up her 2-year-old daughter's birthday cake she was in such a hurry that she didn't realize that the cake's typo until she got home. Melin says she couldn't stop laughing at the mistake.
Melin says that later she did get a cake that said, "Happy Birthday, Elizabeth" but that her and her family did eat the "loser' cake and did not complain to Walmart since they didn't want to get an employee in trouble.
Melin also says she has faced some backlash from parents for taking a picture of her daughter with the cake so she said in a facebook post, "...I can’t believe I actually have to say this but my child can not read and we didn’t tell her what it said EVEN if we did tell her that the cake said loser she doesn’t know what a loser is . So chill. Laugh , it’s funny . Ok so some of you remember Liz’s birthday cake accident from last year but I posted about it today in a group I’m in and had a lot of request to repost it as public so they could share so here it is - Liz’s nickname is Lizard . I got her a cake at Walmart & asked the lady to write “happy Birthday Lizard” I did not look at it . Don’t ask me why🙈As I’m unloading the car I look quickly at it and notice the lady didn’t hear “Lizard “ she heard loser . So here’s my baby & her loser cake It’s funny now but I was maddddd. She did get a new cake !"
