People have been left in stitches after a Costco cake decorator followed the instructions of the customer to a tee, which gave a hilarious result.

A birthday is always a big occasion, and more often than not the big day is celebrated with a special cake that is decorated to the taste of the recipient.

If you are put in charge of sourcing the cake it can be a lot of pressure, as all eyes will be on the sweet treat which is usually lined with candles to be blown out.

But what happens when things don't go to plan? Well, one unfortunate Reddit user found out as they gave Costco very specific instructions to follow, which were perhaps too specific.

Captioning the post, the unfortunate recipient of the cake penned: "Costco will give you exactly what you know you didn't need."

Looking at the instructions, we can see that the customer asked for a half-sheet white cake, with no design or writing needed. An easy cake to produce then, right?

Well on the back of the sheet, the customer drew exactly what they wanted as they drew a slightly skewed rectangle while adding that they would like only red frosting on the perimeter for the top and the bottom.

Clearly, the cake decorator saw the drawing and decided that that was exactly what they were going to offer as they hilariously recreated the wonky drawing in the middle of the cake.

While this isn't what the customer asked for, it is arguably better as it's given a funny story to tell while giving everyone in the comments a good laugh.

"If I received this cake, I'd laugh and take it home so the others can laugh with me with the special instructions on top of the casing. Not sure if the OP is p*****, but this is hilarious. I can't stop laughing at how good the replicated drawing is," one person penned.

"Honestly, I'm pretty impressed by how close the drawing is to the figure you drew," a second added.
