(KTNV) -- Summer is almost here and for many college seniors that means graduation.

One Indiana University student's send off into the real world recently went hilariously wrong.

It all started when Carol Gambrel ordered a cake for her daughter's graduation.

The cake was supposed to have a picture of the graduate's face with a graduation cap drawn on the top of her head.

But, the baker must have misheard the instructions.

They put a cat on the cake instead of a cap.

Gambrel says the baker offered to scrape the cat off of the cake and put a cap on it instead.

But, she wanted to take it home the way it was and give everyone a good laugh.

Pictures of the cake soon went viral.

Gambrel hopes to preserve that half of the cake as long as she can.
