Can you believe this? I was gob-smacked! Obviously it should have stated “You’re The Best” — but that’s not what stuns me, it is the fact that this is a ‘special’ cake (for a birthday), that it is for a 50 year old (who would certainly notice the spelling error), that it is proudly on display as a best example of the quality that can be produced by the in-store cake decorators and bakers, that it is in the supermarket chain’s newest, biggest and best store in the entire country, that no-one checks the product, and finally that no-one checks the displays either. Wow! Things are definitely getting worse!
