We've all heard of the 'fun parent' who tries to outshine the other, but what happens when one forgets their promise? When their daughter Megan wanted a Harry Potter cake for her 13th birthday, a mom and her ex-husband found themselves in a sticky situation. The ex-husband promised to get the cake, but his forgetfulness led to a last-minute panic. The mom, knowing her ex's tendencies, had already ordered the cake, but decided to teach him a lesson instead. What unfolded next was a cake prank that left everyone talking. 😏🎂

The Great Cake Debate: Who's in the Wrong? 🎂🤷

In a hilarious turn of events, a mom's cake prank on her forgetful ex-husband left everyone talking. While some believe she was justified in teaching him a lesson, others argue that she should've kept things civil. The daughter, Megan, eventually found out the truth and was understandably upset with her father. So, who's really in the wrong here? Was the mom's prank too far, or did the ex-husband deserve it for failing to keep his promise? Let's see what the internet thinks of this cake-tastrophe! 🍰😂
