Poor Cara Koscinski was just trying to get her son Jacob a nice cake for his graduation.
After he earned academic distinction with his fantastic GPA, Cara ordered a cake over the weekend with the Latin phrase “Summa Cum Laude” (with top honors) on it.
Unfortunately, the ignorant prudes working the frosting gun at the South Carolina took it upon themselves to protect her from her dirty words; they refused to write the cum part! Haha!
Hilariously, by censoring the benign phrase, they actually exposed a fairly conservative family to the dirty interpretation — as Mom had to explain to her son and her 70-year-old mother why the thing was censored! Young Jacob recalled to WCIV:
“The cake experience was kind of frustrating and humiliating because I had to explain to my friends and family like what that meant. And they were giggling uncontrollably. At least my friends were.”
See Cara’s whole viral story (below)!
Thankfully, Cara says they were later reimbursed by a manager — but it’s not the most important thing that happened that day anyway. She explained:
“It’s fine for us to be compensated for the cake. We’re just happy that our son graduated school and has a bright future.”
Good for her!
Meanwhile, no one tell those cake makers what it looks like every time they frost something…
