The Dairy Queen employee who made a viral marijuana-themed cake said she was fired on her birthday for the mix-up.

Cassandra Walker, the Georgia woman who made the cake, told USA Today that it was her manager who misheard a customer’s cake order over the phone, mistaking “Moana” for “marijuana.”

“So, my mama called and ordered me a cake telling them how much I loved Moana. (Because really I do),” Davis wrote in a Facebook post. “Needless to say these people thought she said marijuana.”

“My sister picked it up and Facetimed my mama the minute she saw it,” Davis told INSIDER. “We all died of laughter because it was obviously an honest mistake.”

Davis didn’t think the cake was going to go viral and said she was “blown away” by the social media response. The Facebook post, which features a picture …read more
