Mum shocked after ordering Minion birthday cake and receiving 'ugliest f***ing thing ever'

Mum shocked after ordering Minion birthday cake and receiving 'ugliest f***ing thing ever'

The cake left her in shock and had the internet reeling

When you're a parent trying to put on a perfect birthday party for your kid, the cake is everything.

You can either toil away in the kitchen making it yourself or you can pop down to the supermarket to pick one up.

The latter sounds more convenient, doesn't it?

Plus, it's a handy option if you're not much of a baker.

But one mum might be wishing she'd whipped out the whisk after she had a disaster with a store bought cake.

This is what one could reasonably expect a Minion cake to look like.

TikTok user @babygirls0s0 was planning a themed party for her son's birthday and opted for a Minions cake.

Ordering the cake from Texas based grocery chain H-E-B, she couldn't have expected much out of the order.

A yellow humanoid figure with big eyes and blue overalls seems pretty straight forward, you might think.

But as this mum discovered, things can go very wrong quickly.

Taking to TikTok, the mum vented: "Yo, I just picked up my son’s Minion cake from H-E-B and this is the ugliest f***ing thing I’ve ever seen.

"This is so not what I asked for and his party’s tomorrow. It is totally fixable and I’m not that picky so I just took it. But this is the ugliest f***ing thing ever."

How bad could it be, you may say.


This Minion cake had everyone talking.

It looks like a Minion if it was melting in a severe heatwave.

Or if it was transforming into a slug.

You can almost make out that it's supposed to be a Minion - it has the yellow skin, the blue lower half and the eyes.

But it could also be Homer Simpson on a very bad day.

Whatever it looks like, this mum was not a happy customer.

"What the f--- is this? Where are my swirls? Why is it green? What happened to the goggle circles?" she fumed.

Her rant soon picked up attention with millions of people taking to the comments section to react.

One commenter said: "That was 10 times worse than I expected hahaha."

"Wait. Are you sure you ordered it from HEB and not Wish???" another shocked viewer wrote.

"NOTHING COULD HAVE PREPARED ME," exclaimed another person.

When contacted for comment by The Today Show, H-E-B said: "At H-E-B, we strive to provide quality products to our customers and to ensure they are satisfied with their purchases. We understand the customer’s frustration and apologize for the inconvenience. We are working to make things right."

Tyla has reached out to H-E-B for further comment.
