A family and a local bakery got their wires hilariously crossed recently after a picture of a USB stick was printed on a birthday cake instead of cartoon character Peppa Pig.

Limerick mother Karen Moroney ordered the cake for her daughter's 2nd birthday and placed a picture of Peppa Pig on a memory stick for the bakery to copy.

However, they ended up baking a cake with a picture of the USB stick on it instead.

"They asked my to bring in the image I wanted on the cake on a USB and they would scan it onto the cake. So I did, the Peppa Pig picture was the only file on the USB. But someone got their wires crossed and put a picture of a USB," she told the Irish Sun.

"The cake tasted fab and we all had a laugh in the end and we got the price of the cake back and will be back again next year for another cake!"
