There is no doubt that online ordering has made our lives much easier. Gone are the days when we actually had to call our favorite restaurants to order delicious food. Food aggregation apps like Swiggy and Zomato have made our favorite food accessible to us with just a few clicks. However, there can often be hilarious gaffes when ordering food online. Recently, a woman ordered a cake through the Zomato app. As his command was being executed, there was a funny misstep that also happened. Take a look at the post she shared on Facebook:
On click, we could see a chocolate truffle cake with some decorations on top. However, rather than the usual “Happy Birthday” message, the frosting read something quite different. “Delivery mein likha tha “Bring 500/- change” toh unhone cake pe likhke bheja, [I wrote Bring 500/- change to the delivery guy, they wrote it on the cake instead]” revealed the wife, Vaishnavi Mondkar, in the caption.
So, Vaishnavi had asked the delivery person to bring change for Rs. 500/- to facilitate easy cash payments. But the restaurant or bakery misunderstood and wrote the message on the cake itself! The hilarious post sparked a flurry of reactions and comments on Facebook. “Delivery instructions it is, laga diya, [you gave delivery instructions, they followed it]wrote one user. Another suggested that cash payments should be avoided for this reason, “That’s why I pay online. “

In May 2022, another customer placed a cake order through the Swiggy app. He asked for it to be mentioned whether or not the cake contained eggs. The bakery actually wrote on the top of the cake that it “contains eggs”, leaving netizens wide-eyed.
