A mother accidentally requested a 'wee blind girl' on top of her daughter's birthday cake after an autocorrect texting fail.
Marie Seggie (52) intended to ask the birthday cake company for a 'wee blonde girl' on top of her daughter's cake, but instead was left baffled with the baker's delivery.
The family were left bewildered when they opened the cake box and saw a small, dark-haired girl wearing a red dress and holding a white cane.
Birthday girl Laura's sister Emily Seggie said they all saw the funny side when they checked their mother's text.

"We were going to take it off the top because we weren't sure if it would be seen as offensive but decided to keep it in the end," Emily said.
"We all just laughed about it. I uploaded it on Twitter and it just went crazy. I woke up and couldn't believe how many times it had been shared.
"It was one of my mum's friends that made the cake for Laura. At the last minute, mum texted her and asked her to put a wee blond figure on top.
"When we got the cake on Friday, mum called us in and asked us if we could see anything wrong with it.
"We were a bit confused why there was a blind girl on top but then mum told us the mistake she had made with autocorrect.
"Thankfully we all saw the funny side of it, including my mum's friend.
"A lot of my friends found it funny and people have been messaging me ever since.
"I am feeling the pressure of the fame!"
