Woman received Marie Curie cake instead of Mariah Carey after co-workers ‘misunderstood’ her request

This Mariah Carey fan’s “One Sweet Day” turned a little sour when her co-workers “misunderstood” her cake decoration request.

A woman in England reportedly asked her colleagues for a Mariah Carey cake for her birthday — however, she instead received a Marie Curie cake.

Mariah Carey even tweeted a response to the cake mix-up.
