Scribal Errors and Decorative Cakes

I recently came across a few photos of signs and instructions that were spelled incorrectly or had suffered from inappropriate chopping by the word-processor. That reminded me of some cakes I’ve seen where the text of the customer’s Vorlage (the text in front of them, or in their head) did not make it onto the baker’s Big Tip With ballons and crap Blue Flowers ConformationEnjoy your VD Just a flower Just Happy Bday LowerCase Musical Notes No Periods Nothing Nuts Allergy Super Bowel Under Neat That usb-cake-mistakeWith Sprinkles Your Weedingcake unscatCongratshed. Some of these sorts of scribal errors would be classified under errors of hearing, although in many instances it’s simply a matter of faulty comprehension: they heard the word correctly, but failed to understand the intention.  Enjoy.
