  • A woman wanted a Mariah Carey cake and got something completely different

A British woman asked for a cake decorated with Mariah Carey's picture for her birthday - but got a baked good with Nobel Prize victor Marie Curie instead.

If this cake glows... it may not be because of the candles.

You'd think one of the world's most recognisable pop stars would be a piece of, uh, cake for most people to organise, but in this case, Lye's cousin received a cake featuring Noble Prize-winning French physicist Marie Curie.

Thousands of others commented, including one who said it was the "best misunderstanding over cake EVER", and another who quipped: "This cake is so tasty, its half-life is only 1.5 seconds".

Ms Casey's cousin, Harriet Alida Lye who is based in Toronto, Canada, shared a photo of the cake to Twitter. Instead, she got Marie Curie because the store misunderstood the order.

People are loving the mix-up on Twitter, and are even sharing their own bakery mishap stories.

A Mariah Carey fan whose birthday cake bearing the face of X-ray pioneer Marie Curie went viral on social media has said the incident was the result of an ongoing-joke and not a mistake.

The woman behind the now-famous cake expressed her shock at how news of her comedic blunder had spread in a post to the HOPE for Chronic Conditions Facebook page.

All we can say is, "Happy birthday, Siobhan". "This has definitely made the HOPE team's day".
