20. A Beary Scary Cake
Cakes are great for special occasions, and who wouldn’t want a friendly teddy bear for their young one’s special day, especially if the advertised topping includes this whimsical darling. You would also expect a popular store to get the decorations right. BeautifulEvil_X posted that the cake was supposed to celebrate her son’s third birthday (via Reddit). The user was disheartened when she first looked at the birthday cake from Costco, telling users that she couldn’t believe it when she noticed the awful icing and the limp bear on top of the cake.
BeautifulEvil_X continued her sob story, adding that she picked up the dessert the day of the party, so there could not be any last-minute alterations. Many other users also chimed in that they were astonished between the two differences. One said at least they added more icing in the form of a bow to make up the ugly difference. Luckily the original poster said her son was “too young to notice the monstrosity (via Reddit).”
