HAMILTON, Scotland, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- A Scottish mom's request for a "wee blonde girl" atop her daughter's birthday cake led to an unusual cake topper when autocorrect changed "blonde" to "blind."

Lanarkshire resident Emily Seggie shared a picture on Twitter of her sister's birthday cake, which was topped with a "wee blind girl" as a result of her mother's autocorrect mishap while sending a text message to the baker.


The girl atop the cake has dark hair instead of the intended blonde and her eyes are closed while she holds a toothpick as a cane.

"The text must have autocorrected to 'blind girl' and when my mum went to collect it she was wondering why it wasn't blonde. They then realized what had happened after checking the text and decided to leave it on as was funny. Hope no one is offended," Seggie told Buzzfeed News.
