A lady in NY followed the same procedure and ordered a birthday cake over email but here’s what they delivered on her birthday – a cake with some HTML icing.
The cake below was supposed to be a mix of English and Italian, but the staff apparently knew no Italian. The problem? Wegman's email system also apparently did not recognize some of the proprietary Microsoft HTML extensions!
It turned out that she used Microsoft Outlook to send her email but Wegman’s email system failed to recognize the proprietary HTML tags of Outlook and hence this goof-up.
