In a delightful turn of events, a man’s attempt to surprise someone with a birthday cake via Zomato took an unexpected and comical twist. Gaurav, residing in Mumbai, ordered a birthday cake for Isha from Kosten Patisseries, a local bakery, only to find himself at the center of a humorous blunder.
Sharing the escapade on social media platform X, Gaurav posted a screenshot of his instructions in the Zomato app, clearly outlining the desired text for the cake. However, the bakery staff’s interpretation led to a cake that left everyone in splits.
While placing the order, Gaurav had instructed Kosten Patisseries to “Send a candle. Write ‘Happy Birthday Isha.’ Or put a happy birthday sticker and write ‘Isha’ if possible.” The bakery staff, however, took a creative liberty that prompted Gaurav to share his amusing experience on X.
The post quickly gained traction, amassing over 44k views, as social media users flooded the comments section with their witty remarks. The confusion in Gaurav’s instructions led the bakery staff to omit the quotes and the word “if” from the cake, resulting in the inscription “Isha Possib.”
Commenters couldn’t help but share their amusement at the bakery’s interpretation, with one user suggesting, “Because they thought ‘if’ was the little middle name for Isha Possib.” Another user pointed out, “They missed ‘if’ and the quotes.”

The relatable nature of the incident prompted others to share similar experiences. One commenter recounted, “I, too, had a similar experience. We had written on a slip to write ‘Happy birthday Arun.’ Please write fonts in italics. We got the cake written ‘Happy Birthday Arun – Font Italics.'”
Gaurav’s unexpected cake surprise serves as a delightful reminder of the unpredictability that can unfold when conveying instructions for special occasions through online platforms.
