January 20, 2007: HTML extension cake

axlrosen points to this LiveJournal entry which explains (and I edit):

So apparently you can email an order to the Wegman's bakery for cakes, etc... including what message you want on the cake.

The cake 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!

[Actually,] the email likely feeds directly into their computer that runs the food-grade equivalent of an inkjet printer to place the message on the cake, so it is possible that the message made it onto the cake because someone did not check it on the computer first.
So, automated.

It's still funny.

Heh. That's my store. Ever eat one of those cakes? The frosting is enough to put you in a coma.

This shirt has the same problem as that cake - accidentally printing the metadata rather than the data.

Damn that smail amount of bleed....

Another interesting edible-printing item from boingboing:

AndrewAndrew, a design firm, has created this cookie whose nutrition facts are printed right on the icing, in edible ink.
