People Are Cracking Up Over A Mom Who Ordered Her Son This "Minion" Cake

Isaac looks thrilled to have his not-Minion cake on his birthday.

1. This is 18-year-old Isaac Banda, and his mom, Melissa. Isaac celebrated a birthday recently, and asked his mom for a seemingly simple request: a Minion cake.

2. Isaac, being an unabashedly big fan of the Minions, texted his mom to ask for “a cake with a Minion on it.”

Isaac told BuzzFeed News that he simply “likes minions…A LOT.”

Melissa acknowledged the request and responded, “OK I’ll see what I can do.”

But somewhere between then and the day of Isaac’s birthday, something happened. There was a blip, a strange, and hilarious, miscommunication.

3. On Isaac’s birthday, this is what showed up as his party.

Evidently, “a cake with a Minion on it” is not what he got.

Isaac, instead, got a cake with Spongebob on it.

4. He said he and everyone at his birthday celebration were laughing over the mishap. So he shared it on Twitter, where a bunch of other people started cracking up, too.

9. Some people joked that his mom did this on purpose, but Isaac said his mom had totally confused the two cartoon characters “because they’re both yellow.”
