Lisa Sarber Aldrich was trying to find a birthday cake for her friend Mandy so she went to Meijer Marketplace in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She just wanted a simple cake and had no idea that she was about make someone's day.

When she found the colors she wanted, she found an employee behind the counter and asked her to write “Happy Birthday Mandy” on it. After what seemed like a long time, the girl handed her back this.
Aldrich wrote on her Facebook wall: “I looked her in the eye and said thank you before I even looked at the cake. After looking, I nervously laughed and headed to check out- it didn’t really matter to me that it looked so bad— I thought people would think it was funny. The cashiers at the self check out didn’t think it was so funny though, and called a few more cashiers and a manger over to look, even taking pictures… one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said ‘the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her- even though she’s not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day.”

Since its posting, it had been shared 99,000 times on Facebook. Some people accused her of doing PR for the grocery store, but she shut that down real quick. She also admitted to everyone how much she loves cake.

However, most of the comments were supporting and thankful for the reminder that even the smallest things can lift someone up when you least expect it.
Moral of the story? Sometimes spreading joy really is a piece of cake.

She laughed and "thought people would think it's funny." Then, an employee told her that the other employee is autistic, something that she had no right to share with a stranger. These are horribly condescending and insensitive people.

Someone wrote on a cake. The customer laughed at it and thought it was funny.

How is this a positive story???? Making fun of their writing (even if not intended) and then posting it all over the internet because the person was autistic.....

its cake. it taste the same no matter what is written on it. Leave it Aindy (above) to make this a social issue, the fact that an autistic person tried to help, and this person was not upset over it is great. I have seen customers go bat-sh*t crazy over nothing just to make an issue and get the cake 'given' to them without payment.

Im sorry, but you have it the wrong way around. The person who wrote this has made this a social matter. Fact is she didnt have to mention to anyone that she was autistic, even after she was told that. She could have just left it with 'the cake was great' without ever mentioning it was by an autistic person. Chances are she paraded the cake around the party telling everyone an autistic person made it, just like she is on facebook.
I just dont get why that needs to be brought up at all, unless she herself wants to recieve brownie points for getting it off an autistic person.
