What’s in a name? A lot, if it is on a birthday cake.
A girl in England ended up getting a Marie Curie-themed cake due to a mix-up by her colleagues.
“My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey birthday cake. They misunderstood, and is the cake they made her instead. It’s Marie Curie, looking very festive,” author Harriet Lye posted on Twitter.

Marie Curie was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize for her pioneering research on radioactivity. Mariah Carey, on the other hand, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.
Lye’s tweet of the hilarious mix-up has gone viral on the social media site, drawing thousands of likes, shares and comments.

I wish I lived in a world where Marie Curie cakes were more popular than Mariah Carey cakes. https://t.co/qrxxdkjupj— Alex Psirides (@psirides) June 15, 2019
Well, it looks like Marie Curie might just be more popular than Mariah Carey after all!
