A NAIL artist has branded herself “thick as s***” after hilariously botching her gran’s birthday cake.
Skye Groves bought a set of candles from Asda which she thought spelled out Happy Birthday.
But when the 22-year-old got home she couldn’t understand why the letters didn’t make the words “happy” and “birthday”.
The best Skye, from Leicester, could come up with for her 73-year-old gran, Jeanette, was “Hargi Birtdly”.
She took a snap of the misspelled greeting on top of her self-made chocolate and Oreo and posted it on social media.
Skye ranted: “@Asda u are s***. It doesn’t even read Happy Bday!! Good job my Nan is visually impaired.”
A very embarrassed Skye had to return to social media when her dad realised five minutes later that the £1 packet of candles spelled “Birthday Girl”.
Skye posted a picture of the cake with the letter correctly arranged and the caption: “Nevermind! I’m thick as s***.”
The pictures of Skye’s meltdown surfaced on Twitter, posted by friend Rory Lane.
Rory captioned his post: “Screaming.”
Since then, the post has clocked in over 32,000 likes and 5,000 retweets, being well received by Twitter users who have found the pictures of the cake hilarious.
@EbenMarks tweeted: “Getting yellled at for laugh-shaking by my poor, non twitter-brained partner who’s trying to sleep was a good reason to stop reading Twitter in bed.”
@AaronJaackson said: “All future birthday messages must read Hargi Birtdly.”
Referring to a form of language impairment, @DDIGITALMEDIA commented: “Never seen a birthday cake with Aphasia before.”
@laylabyclapton posted: “I like Hargi Birtdly better.”
Speaking today, Skye said: “In my defence it said Happy Birthday on the box they came in, not Birthday Girl. Safe to say I need to go back to school.”
