Graduation cake features cat on girl's head, not cap

ZIONSVILLE, IN (WFLA) -

An Indiana mother's attempt to get a graduation cake for her daughter turned into a humorous viral photo.

The cake was supposed to feature a graduation "cap" on top of the photo of her daughter, but the baker misunderstood. When Carol Gambrel opened the cake, she found a hand-drawn cat instead. Yes, the four-legged fuzzy creative, perched atop the graduate's head.

"It just went viral from there. It's been picked up all over and we've been having so much fun with it. We get the comments... the comments the people wrote on the web sites have been pretty funny so it's been fun for us. It's been more of a graduation celebration than she ever expected," Gambrel said.

The mistake happens to play off a popular meme called "cat bearding" where people take their cats and drape them around their chin like a beard and post a photo online.
