A woman in England received a birthday surprise after she asked for a Mariah Carey-themed cake and instead received one with an image of Nobel Prize-winning scientist Marie Curie.

“My cousin in England told her colleagues she wanted a Mariah Carey birthday cake,” Harriet Alida Lye wrote on Twitter along with an image of the cake. “They misunderstood, and is the cake they made her instead. It’s Marie Curie, looking very festive.”

The reactions on Twitter were appropriately nerdy.

“This cake deserves two Nobel prizes in different fields,” a user wrote.

“Might get superpowers ... might get cancer... it’s really a toss up, but I bet radioactive cake tastes amazing,” another said.

“It really ought to be a yellow cake...” another added.

Happy Birthday, Siobhan! Hopefully it still ended up as one sweet day.
