A word of advice

If you need to buy a cake for a man's 22nd birthday, do not buy a Spongebob Squarepants birthday cake. There is something fundamentally disturbing about doing so.

If you are picking up such a cake for a friend, it is best to lie about the age of the recipient when conversing with the cake decorators in the bakery.

If you have already said "There must be some mistake - this cake is for a 22 year old guy!" to the bakers, do not reveal your real name and try to leave quickly before their laughter reaches you.
