A young fan didn't get the Toronto Maple Leafs cake he wanted for his birthday. But now he'll get to see his beloved team in person soon.
An 8-year-old Maple Leafs fan from Mascouche, Quebec received the wrong birthday cake, getting one with the Maple Leaf Foods logo by mistake.
The boy, named Jacob, is a huge Maple Leafs fan and according to CBC was hoping to celebarte his birthday with a cake topped with the team's logo. But according to a viral Facebook post, when Jacob's stepmother, Tania Levesque, tried to order the cake things went a little wrong.
The baker did not have a template for the logo, so Levesque asked him to Google the image. When Jacob's dad, Mathieu Bertrand, went to pick up the cake, he saw the logo of the Mississauga, Ontario-based cold-cut company on it instead.
"We had a good laugh," Levesque told CBC.
Maple Leaf Foods caught wind of the mishap and made things right.
According to CBC, they offered the family they choice between making a trip to Toronto to see the Maple Leafs or watching them in Montreal and $300 worth of Maple Leaf cold cuts.
"I'm going to choose Toronto because the kids want to go there," Levesque said. "The kids love baloney from Maple Leaf."
