An Irish woman got quite a surprise when a cake she ordered for her toddler ended up being emblazoned with an image of a memory stick instead of a kids' TV show character.

The cake, ordered from a bakery in Limerick by Karen Moroney, was supposed to be iced with an image from Peppa Pig, her two-year-old daughter Layla-Valentina's favourite TV show.

But the cake came back with just an image of a USB stick, instead of cartoon farm animals, The Irish Mirror reports.

The confusion likely came when the bakery, upon receiving a memory stick containing the image Ms Moroney wanted, thought she meant the stick itself - rather than the JPEG file on it - was supposed to be superimposed onto the cake.

Ms Moroney told the Mirror she wasn't sure how the bakery had got it wrong, because they'd asked for the image on a USB stick.

But rather than being angry, she found the mistake hilarious - and the bakery rectified its gaffe by replacing the cake and saying her next one will be free.

"The cake tasted fab and we all had a laugh in the end," she said.

She said she will go back again because the "cakes are very nice" at that particular bakery.
