Photo Paper

When Photo Cakes Go Wrong

Karen noticed something a bit odd about her son's "sports-themed" cake:

International Women's Day Gets Cut Down To Size

When Jolene asked her bakery if they could fit an edible image of this flyer on a sheet cake for her, they assured her it'd be no problem:

So, let's review: one rectangular image, one rectangular sheet cake.

How could they POSSIBLY wreck this up?

 

[drum roll, please]

 

TA-DAAAA!!
