The birthday boy, 8-year-old Jacob from Mascouche, 43 Kilometres North East of Montreal.

As a die-hard Toronto Maple Leafs fan, Jacob was expecting a hockey-themed logo on his cake. However, he ended up with the maple leaf foods logo instead.

Upon seeing the cake Jacob and his father were not impressed by the mistake and gave the cake a big thumbs down.

The family won’t name the local grocery store, but never imagined they would get it wrong when they asked for a Maple Leafs logo. By the time they picked up the cake, it was too late to get a new one made.

Maple Leaf foods responded to the controversy via CityNews Montreal Instagram page.
