Family Ordered a 'Moana' Birthday Cake, But Got A 'Marijuana' Cake Instead

A Georgia woman wanted to surprise her daughter with a special Moana-themed birthday cake, but it turns out the expectation for a properly executed Disney-inspired cake was just, high.


Kensli Davis of Milledgeville is a huge fan of Moana – Disney's 56th animated feature film – and her mother thought it would be a good idea to get her a cake with the strong-willed Polynesian character to help celebrate.

However, the sheet cake she ordered from the local Dairy Queen had an entirely different theme that could only make one think:

"they've got to be toking."

Instead of Moana's face, the birthday cake featured a marijuana leaf and a cute horse resembling My Little Pony smoking a joint.

Even better.

Davis commented on the hilarious snafu, telling WMAZ-TV that the verbal miscommunication could have been attributed to the Southern accent.

"I think they thought that she said 'marijuana' because we are from south Georgia and kind of have an accent. So, 'Moana,' marijuana?"



Davis continued to describe the accidental masterpiece.

"I guess when they said that I love cartoons, they were just like, 'Let's throw a little pony on there.' It had red eyes. It was smoking a joint with a tramp stamp of a pot leaf on its bottom."

Twitter laughed along with the Moana/marijuana cake.



Davis posted a picture of the cake on her Facebook page and explained what happened.

"I haven't had a chance to tell y'all about our experience this weekend with my birthday cake. So my mama called and ordered me a cake telling them how much I loved Moana. (Because really I do)"
"Well needless to say these people thought she said marijuana. That ice cream cake was still good though."

Some got a little judge-y.

But we can weed out the haters. Disney is for the young and the young at heart.

How could anyone not laugh?

The gaffe was a bonus, and Davis and her family happily consumed the cake.

"We weren't mad about it or anything. We thought it was funny so we just ate it anyway!"

Davis told CNN the baker offered a do-over, but she turned them down.

"The lady who made my cake was apologetic and offered to make another one. But the first one was so good we weren't worried about it."

Yes, the cake was baked but not laced with CBD oil, nor did it have blunt candles instead of wax.



For Davis, the takeaway is to keep things simple for next year.

"It won't be Moana or marijuana. I just won't get a design at all. I'll just get a regular ice cream cake if I have to."

Happy birthday, Kensli! May the cake lift your spirits higher.

Unfortunately Dairy Queen was not as amused as the family that ordered the cake. After seeing the story go viral, Dairy Queen fired the employee that made it.


They later changed their mind and offered to reinstate the worker, but they declined citing how they had been treated.

If you're a Moana fan too, the film is available here.

But if a more "adult" My Little Pony is more your speed...

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
