Parents order a 'Frozen' Elsa birthday cake and end up with something different

Reddit user OfficialBigHead posted this picture of a "Frozen" cake featuring Elsa – which is a far cry from what was likely expected. Simply titled "the cake that was ordered and the cake that arrived," the odd picture shows a side-by-side comparison of the advertised cake created by McGreevy Cakes, a cake-decorating website out of Akron, New York.

According to the Daily Mail, an "unnamed baker" created the attempted Elsa cake, not McGreevy Cakes. The Queen Elsa cake was meant for a little girl's birthday party but instead of a pretty, icy blonde-haired, fair complexion version, Elsa had strange, bright yellow hair made with heavy icing and tanned skin with wide-set eyes.

Mashable reports that the cake was created as part of Icing Smiles, a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child.

The maker of the cake did it for no profit and the girl in the photo below seems happy with the gift.

  • Defiantly denouncing new allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him as a political ‘smear,’ Judge Brett Kavanaugh went on a media offensive on Monday to tell Senators and the nation that he will not withdraw from consideration for the U.S. Supreme Court, as Kavanaugh heads for a historic hearing on Thursday, which draws obvious parallels to the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill Supreme Court sexual harassment showdown in 1991. “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” Kavanaugh wrote in a Monday letter, as he said the latest charges against him “are smears, pure and simple.” “There is now a frenzy to come up with something — anything — that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring,” Kavanaugh added, as it was not clear where the votes stood on his nomination with a small group of Republican Senators. Here’s the latest on a number of fronts in the Kavanaugh confirmation battle: 1. Kavanaugh-Ford brings back clear memories of Thomas-Hill. Whether you believe the judge or his accuser, these past few days have been much like what I covered in 1991, when the confirmation of Clarence Thomas went off the rails because of the accusations of sexual harassment leveled by law professor Anita Hill. Their testimony in a special round of hearings riveted Senators – and the nation – as Thomas was narrowly confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court by the Senate on a vote of 52-48. I kept my reporter’s notebook from that second round of Thomas hearings because I instinctively knew how important a moment it was. 27 years later, it feels like I am covering the same kind of political battle. I went back into my notes to see what I could find. One thing that stands out is both Thomas and Hill told forceful stories. Both were believable. But both couldn’t be telling the truth at the same time. We may be on the verge of a similar situation with Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. 2. Kavanaugh standing firm on his nomination. When Monday began, some on Capitol Hill wondered if Kavanaugh would throw in the towel – but there was no indication that would happen, as his letter demonstrated. “The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last minute character assassination will not succeed,” Kavanaugh wrote. On Monday night, Kavanaugh and his wife went on Fox News on Monday evening to make their case in an unusual forum for a Supreme Court nominee.  “I’m not going anywhere,” the judge said in the interview. Brett Kavanaugh: 'I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about an allegation of sexual assault. I've never sexually assaulted anyone.' https://t.co/HvY7xtcpV3 pic.twitter.com/TmsjBFnYO7 — Fox News (@FoxNews) September 24, 2018 3. GOP leaders standing by Kavanaugh as well. It was obvious from the words of the Senate Majority Leader on Monday afternoon that GOP leaders were sticking with Kavanaugh, as Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) denounced Democratic attacks on the judge, and vowed that the Senate would vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. “This is what the so-called ‘Resistance’ has become. A smear campaign, pure and simple,” McConnell said on the Senate floor, in one of the most forceful tones reporters could recall from the Majority Leader. One note about his vow for a vote – note that McConnell did not say Kavanaugh would win. While GOP leaders stand with him, his future rests with a small group of Republicans in the Senate. Their votes probably depend on how the testimony goes in Thursday’s hearing. . @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell: 'Judge #Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor, up or down, on the Senate floor. This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote in this Senate in the near future.' #SCOTUS Full video here: https://t.co/xMqbfj2Cwh pic.twitter.com/zkfqXXDFsG — CSPAN (@cspan) September 24, 2018 4. “PS: I look forward to your testimony.” While Kavanaugh can do interviews, and GOP Senators can make floor speeches, much of what happens in the hearing this Thursday is probably going to be the make-or-break for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. We all have seen Kavanaugh before Senators – but no one has seen or heard Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. This is no ordinary setting. Anita Hill was stoic and composed in 1991. Ford could be the same. How she tells her story – and how she interacts with Senators will be very important, as both sides wait to see what develops later this week. The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) added this extra greeting to a letter sent to Ford on Monday. 5. This is not just a regular DC story; it’s a real DC story. While many people might dismiss this nomination fight as a classic partisan battle on Capitol Hill, what makes it somewhat different is the fact that Kavanaugh is a local who grew up in the Washington suburbs, and is part of a web of different social groups in the area. For example, I know people who went to school with, and partied with Kavanaugh. I know some who were friends with the Blasey family, others who know Kavanaugh from the CYO girls basketball league where he coaches, people from his Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church right at the D.C.-Maryland line, and from his country clubs. For some of them, this is a disturbing story on multiple levels, as this is not just a political fight about some big-named nominee. Instead, this is a political fight about someone they know personally. And as you can see from this letter, from some of Kavanaugh’s high school classmates, and the following tweet from one his fellow parishioners, it’s stirred both sides. As parishioner of Blessed Sacrament in DC I’m disgusted by the using of children to support a political stunt. @BrettKavanaugh is a perjurer, an obfuscator, with shady financials and using your daughters, of all people, to prop him up turns my stomach #blessedsacramentdc — Stephanie Ann (@StephDorazio) September 7, 2018 6. Echoes of another controversial investigation. When top White House aide Kellyanne Conway went on CBS Monday morning to defend Judge Kavanaugh, she riffed on a famous line from Hillary Clinton and Democrats during the Whitewater-Monica Lewinsky investigation, which Clinton labeled a ‘vast right-wing conspiracy.’ Now, Conway says there is a ‘vast left-wing conspiracy’ which is trying to take out Judge Kavanaugh. The irony of that line is even more obvious when you remember that Kavanaugh was one of the prosecutors on the team of Independent Counsel Ken Starr, and that Kavanaugh was fully prepared to ask President Bill Clinton all sorts of very specific questions about his relationship – and relations – with Lewinsky. In an interview with Stephen Colbert, Hillary Clinton was asked if she had any sympathy for Kavanaugh. “No, I have no sympathy,” she answered. RT @CBSThisMorning: 'This is starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy,' says @Kellyannepolls on new accusations against Brett Kavanaugh pic.twitter.com/3h5oR8HW7x — Trixy Wh (@trixywh) September 24, 2018 7. How soon could Kavanaugh be on the Supreme Court? One thing to remember from 1991 is that even with the spectacle of the second round of hearings, Clarence Thomas was ultimately approved by the Senate. The same thing could well happen with the Kavanaugh nomination. If Republicans want to press ahead immediately, they could hold the Thursday hearing, have the Judiciary Committee vote on Friday, bring up the nomination on the Senate floor Saturday, vote on a motion to shut off debate on Monday, and then have a final vote on Tuesday, October 2. As long as Republicans have the votes, there is nothing Democrats can do under the Senate rules to stop Kavanaugh – their only option to stop is to have a majority against him. But before we get to that point, there are some Republicans and Democrats in the Senate who will be in the spotlight. Susan Collins tells @tedbarrettcnn she’s going to wait to make a decision on Kavanaugh until after Thursday hearing. “I believe that the committee investigators should reach out to Deborah Ramirez in order to question her under oath about what she is alleging happened,” she added — Manu Raju (@mkraju) September 24, 2018 I just asked Democratic senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana if he’s made up his mind on Kavanaugh. “I’m looking forward to the hearing on Thursday,” Donnelly replied. — John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) September 24, 2018
  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that $800,000 in federal money is on its way to Tulsa as part of the Public Safety Partnership. The money will go toward ballistic technology and improving investigative practices through Crime Gun Intelligence Centers.  “We are very grateful to be receiving this Department of Justice grant, which will formalize Tulsa as a Crime Gun Intelligence Center,” said Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan. Chief Jordan says the money will help police identify the most violent offenders even quicker, targeting them for enforcement and removing them from the streets. 
  • China and the United States imposed new tariff hikes on each other’s goods Monday and Beijing accused Washington of bullying, giving no sign of compromise in an intensifying battle over technology that is weighing on global economic growth. U.S. regulators went ahead with a planned 10 percent tax on a $200 billion list of 5,745 Chinese imports including bicycles and furniture. China’s customs agency said it responded at noon by beginning to collect taxes of 5 or 10 percent on a $60 billion list of 5,207 American goods, from honey to industrial chemicals. The conflict stems from U.S. President Donald Trump’s complaints Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology. American officials say Chinese plans for state-led development of global competitors in robotics and other technologies violate its market-opening obligations and might erode U.S. industrial leadership. China’s leaders offered to narrow their politically sensitive, multibillion-dollar trade surplus with the United States by purchasing more natural gas and other American exports. But they have rejected pressure to change industry plans the communist leadership sees as a path to prosperity and global influence.
  • After initial reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was about to be fired or forced to resign, the White House on Monday said that President Donald Trump would meet with Rosenstein on Thursday, with Rosenstein’s job future seemingly still in question. “At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement issued to reporters. “Because the President is at the United Nations General Assembly and has a full schedule with leaders from around the world, they will meet on Thursday when the President returns to Washington, D.C.,” Sanders added. This may be the strangest day yet at the Trump White House. Rod Rosenstein was summoned to the WH to meet with John Kelly this morning. He expected to be fired. He wasn't. And now Rosenstein is attending a previously scheduled cabinet-level meeting (filling in for Sessions) — Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) September 24, 2018 That Trump-Rosenstein meeting would come on the same day that the Senate Judiciary Committee will be meeting to hear from Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the judge of sexual assault when they were in high school. Rosenstein has been a target of both the President and Republicans in Congress in recent months, as Democrats have repeatedly warned Mr. Trump not to get rid of Rosenstein, who oversees the Russia investigation. The President has made clear his displeasure repeatedly about Rosenstein’s most consequential act as Deputy Attorney General, the May 2017 appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as the head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. “If Trump fires Rod Rosenstein, it is obstruction of justice in the most fundamental sense,” said Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL), a frequent critic of the House GOP investigation of the Russia probe. “As a member of the Justice Department, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is NOT your lapdog,” tweeted Rep. Al Green (D-TX), who has filed impeachment articles against President Trump.
  • The Harrisburg Fire Department in North Carolina surprised a 3-year-old with a birthday party after several of his classmates canceled Sunday.  >> Watch the news report here Melissa Reid said she received several text messages the morning of her son's birthday party from parents, letting her know her son's classmates couldn't make it.  >> Need something to lift your spirits?

She wanted her son to have a special birthday bash. So she called the Harrisburg Fire Department, which is about a mile away from her house, and asked for a quick tour to entertain her son, Jackson, who loves fire trucks.
