Family says supermarket wouldn't write this on a cake due to profanity

What should have been a proud moment of celebration for one South Carolina student and his family turned into a lesson about censorship and not ordering everything online.

Jacob Kosinski graduated on Saturday with a 4.89 GPA, earning summa cum laude honors. His mother tried to order a cake for the occasion from supermarket Publix's website, only to be met with an error message.

The site's foul language detector flagged the word "cum", which in Latin, means "with". She instead entered the cake writing into the special instructions box on the site.

When the cake arrived at the house, the decoration read "Congrats Jacob! Summa --- Laude Class of 2018."

Cara Koscinski complained to the assistant manager, who offered to remake the cake and Publix refunded her the $70 plus a gift card as an apology.

Have you ever gotten a misspelling or other kind of mistake made on a cake?
