If this cake glows… it may not be because of the candles.
A British woman asked for a cake decorated with Mariah Carey‘s picture for her birthday — but got a baked good with Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie instead.
“My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey birthday cake. They misunderstood, and is the cake they made her instead,” tweeted Harriet Aida Lye. “It’s Marie Curie, looking very festive.”
In the image shared by Lye, the sweet treat can be seen topped with the somber face of the French-Polish physicist, known for her groundbreaking work on radioactivity.
“Happy Birthday Siobhan” is written in plain block letters on the brown cake and seven pink-frosted cupcakes sit on the same plate.
Lye’s tweet was shared more than 44,000 times and liked more than 207,000 times since Friday, even eliciting a response from the “Hero” singer herself.
“This could’ve been me if only I hadn’t failed remedial math,” Mariah Carey tweeted. “Happy birthday Siobhan!”
