Birthdays and anniversaries are some of the most special occasions in our lives. And what is a good celebration without some cake? A woman decided to celebrate a bizarre yet hilarious birthday of an event happening in her neighbourhood. Natalie Naquin Harvey is a woman from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, who celebrated a year of the street near her home being constructed. The party comprised a beautiful cake she baked to depict the construction site. "Happy first birthday to our street construction," she wrote in the post. Take a look:
The pictures that Natalie shared on Facebook went viral, receiving over 1.2k likes and 935 shares. In the sarcastic post, she narrated how it had been a year since the authorities began to rip up their street, and now, a year later, the street is impassable. "Just last week, we had a massive, 6-foot-deep hole," exclaimed Natalie in her post. She further wrote that she baked a special cake depicting the street scene in cake form, with two layers of chocolate sponge and peanut butter frosting. The epic cake also featured details such as traffic cones, angry-looking construction workers, mechanical diggers, and a 'Road closed' sign.
The hilarious yet relatable post struck a chord with Facebook users. This problem of delayed constructions was uncannily familiar to users from all across the world. "This is brilliant!! Thanks for the laugh, and quality job on that cake," wrote one user while another said, "A committee will have to be formed to investigate the delays first...." One Facebook user also pointed out, "The best part of this cake is the depiction of 1 man working while the others stand around and watch. You're my hero."
