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.

Posted on

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.

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.

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.

Told my mom hook it up with a minion cake ๐Ÿ˜‚

@Isaac_Bandababy I'm actually crying rn ๐Ÿ˜‚

"You look so disappointed," someone commented on Isaac's facial expression to his not-Minion cake.

@Isaac_Bandababy @ryantylerl_ you look soooo disappointed haha

@Isaac_Bandababy @Joe_robles83 this is not real ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’€

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."

The disrespect ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ don't fuck with minion lovers
