Graduation cakes follow a pretty straightforward formula. There’s a photo of the graduate, usually a diploma, a cap and the word “Congratulations.” What happens, though, when the cake shop hears “cat” instead of cap? Hilarity ensues.


A mom from Indiana ordered a graduation cake for her daughter. When Carol Gambrel picked up the cake, there was a cat on top of her daughter’s head, instead of a cap.


“When I went to pick it up at the store, I could not stop laughing,” Gambrel said.


“They tried to wipe off the cat and put on a plastic cap,” Gambrel’s daughter Laura told Reddit. “But she told them to keep it.”


We can see this turning into a trend for future graduation cakes. Take note, moms.
