Twitter users are having a hearty laugh after a Swiggy customer shared a photo showing what a bakery wrote on the cake he ordered.
Kapil Wasnik said in a tweet on May 20 that he had ordered cake from a popular bakery in Nagpur. “In the order details I mentioned ‘please mention if the cake contains egg’, ” he added.
What Wasnik received left him speechless. The restaurant sent him the cake with “contain egg” written on top with white icing cream.Wasnik’s tweet received over 43,000 likes and over 1,200 responses. “Sorry, but can’t help laughing,” Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi said.

Another user said: “Man, sorry but this is really funny. Should be in the news lol.”
Some Twitter accounts shared their experiences of bakeries sending them cakes with rib-tickling messages.
One customer's "don't send cutlery" message to a restaurant was misinterpreted as something to be written on his cake.
