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.

  • Atlanta police are investigating after a person was found dead on the road near Interstate 75/85 and Langford Parkway in southeast Atlanta. Atlanta police Capt. Andrew Senzer told Channel 2 Action News police are not sure how the person got in the road or if it is a man or woman. The injuries indicate the person may have been hit by a car, he said.

Tex McIver jury deliberations continue Man charged with arson in stable fire that killed 24 horses 'Armed and dangerous man' on the loose after killing wife, sheriff says Police said the person is an adult estimated to be between 25 and 35 years old. Police on scene also noticed that there are no apartments or homes nearby, so they said they do not know why the person was in the roadway. “You have 75/85 that splits with Langford Parkway and that loops around, it’s a lot of twists and turns over here, very dark, but we don’t know why the pedestrian was on the roadway,” Senzer said. If the person was hit, police will then search for a hit-and-run driver.
  • Barbara Bush was jogging in a Houston park thinking about how she could best contribute to the nation if she became first lady. As the story goes, she realized many problems such as homelessness, crime, hunger and addiction could be alleviated if more people were able to read, write and comprehend language. Today, many Georgia educators and nonprofit leaders credit Bush with raising the bar of literacy efforts across the state. [READ: Funeral arrangements announced for former first lady Barbara Bush] “Making literacy a key priority set an expectation,” said Arianne B. Weldon, director of the Get Georgia Reading Campaign, a statewide effort  to get all children reading proficiently by the end of the third grade. “Literacy is a key to a successful society.” In 1989, Bush created the Tallahassee-based Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy , which has provided grants to programs and schools serving metro Atlanta, Dublin and Savannah. Bush, the wife and mother of former presidents, died at her home in Texas Tuesday at age 92. Since its founding,  the foundation has raised and provided more than $110 million to help create or expand family literacy programs in the nation, according to its website. [PHOTOS: Barbara Bush through the years] Jackie Curtis, executive director of Communities in Schools of Laurens County, runs one such program. Curtis said Bush’s influence cannot be overstated. In 2006, Curtis’ nonprofit received $65,000 to start a program for teenage mothers who had dropped out of high school. The program helped the teens earn their GEDs and provided childcare. “I think history will prove that her impact on literacy was probably more far-reaching than her position as first lady and the mother of a president,” said Curtis.  Today, many Georgia educators and nonprofit leaders credit Bush with raising the bar of literacy efforts across the state.

The partnership includes the Marcus Autism Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta Speech School, the Get Georgia Reading Campaign, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the Georgia Department of Education. Laura Hauser, literacy services officer at the DeKalb County Public Library, also praised Bush. The Barbara Bush Foundation named the library as one of   the programs that it supported. [READ: Family, love, life: Barbara Bush's most memorable quotes] Bush successfully used “the platform she had to support literacy awareness,” said Hauser. “Literacy is more than reading. It’s the ability to write and speak in English and use math. It allows people to sustain themselves. It’s something we can all get behind.” Studies have shown that the earlier children learn to read, write and comprehend, the greater their chances of graduating from high school, competing in the workplace and earning a living wage. It also gives them a solid foundation to learn other skill sets. Bush served as honorary chair of the foundation until 2012, when she passed the leadership mantle to her daughter, Dorothy “Doro” Bush Koch.
  • Former FBI Director James Comey is shrugging off criticism from the White House concerning his controversial new book A Higher Loyalty, in which he is highly critical of President Donald Trump. “I kind of shrug. I can’t control – it doesn’t appear that anybody can – what he says and does,” Comey tells WSB Radio’s Scott Slade. “All I can do is share and be as transparent as I can.  In the book, Comey compares the president to a mob boss. In interviews, he has described the president as ‘morally unfit’ for office.  President Trump has responded on Twitter, saying: “Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!”   Comey tells WSB that he hopes people reading his book “see that I’m pretty tough on myself, and try to show people times when I’ve done things I’m not proud of.” He adds, “I think if you take the entire picture together, it’s hard to say what he says about me.” When asked whether he would rethink any of his decisions from the past year, Comey says through a chuckle, “If I had a magic wand, Hillary Clinton would never have had an email server and Anthony Weiner would never have bought a lap top – ever, because then the FBI wouldn’t be in the middle of a nightmare.” On a more serious note, he adds, “Look reasonable people can disagree, but I’m proud of the way we made the decisions because we made them for the right reasons even people disagree with the result. “And so, there is not a major decision I would think about differently, even with a magic wand.” In A Higher Loyalty, Comey talks about learning from three presidents, two of which he says illustrate the values at the heart of ethical leadership:  “The two presidents I mean are George W. Bush and Barack Obama,” Comey explains. “They’re very different people – very different politics – but I found that both of them had great respect for institutional values and things like the rule of law.  “You saw that in President Bush’s refusal to pardon Scooter Libby, someone he was close to.”  He adds, “They both understood they needed to get people to speak the truth to them. “That’s the hardest thing for a leader to get, so I was very impressed in different ways with both presidents Bush and Obama.” Up next for Comey is a town hall with CNN and an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier. He tells WSB he is also trying to arrange to go on “Fox and Friends” because he believes he “should answer questions from everybody.” Comey’s replacement as FBI director, former Atlanta resident Christopher Wray, has come under recent fire after senators demanded he turn over a two-page document justifying the Russia probe or face a contempt of Congress charge and possible impeachment.  Comey offered some advice for his successor. “Be yourself. He’s a person of great ability and great character and integrity. I wish I was still the FBI Director, but if I can’t be, that’s the kind of person you need.  “And if he’s true to himself, the country will be well-served.”
  • An undercover author said working in an Amazon fulfillment center is like 'a prison,' where workers were urinating in bottles because they did not have enough time to go to the bathroom.  >> Read more trending news James Bloodworth, as part of his book 'Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain,' spent almost a month in 2016 working as a 'picker' at a fulfillment center in Rugeley, England, where he retrieved items for delivery. In addition to his undercover work at Amazon, Bloodworth also took jobs in social care, at a call center, at a building site and even as an Uber driver to research how people cope at their workplace.  According to Bloodworth, Amazon fulfillment workers had to meet high productivity targets that were feasible only if they ran around the warehouse. Running around the warehouse is something Amazon does not allow for safety reasons. 'The job itself is really bad,' Bloodworth told Business Insider. 'I've worked in warehouses before, but this was nothing like I had experienced. You don't have proper breaks — by the time you get to the canteen, you only have 15 or 20 minutes for lunch, in a 10½-hour working day. You don't have time to eat properly to get a drink. 'You have to go through security when you leave the warehouse, and that adds five minutes. It's like an airport — belt off, watch off. The atmosphere is what I imagine a prison feels like. You felt like you were walking on eggshells.' Bloodworth's claim that workers were so busy that they had to urinate in bottles sparked widespread outrage on social media on Monday. Bloodworth told The Sun, a news company in the UK, that 'workers often didn't take a break to go to the toilet because they were too sparse to get to quickly and they feared punishment for missing productivity targets. So they peed in bottles instead.' 'If you're on the top floor, you know it will take five minutes to go the toilet, and all the time you're being admonished for taking too much idle time,' Bloodworth said.  Bloodworth explained how he came across a bottle of urine while searching for items on an upper floor of the warehouse. 'One day I'm walking down the aisle, and I go to pick up an item, and there's a bottle of straw-colored water on the shelf. And at first I thought, 'Oh, what's that?'' he said. 'And then it was very obvious what it was. And there was a pool of water next to it. It struck me — it was so obvious why someone would do that.' According to Business Insider, Amazon said that it doesn't time warehouse workers' toilet breaks and that it ensures they can reach the bathrooms easily. Amazon responded in a statement to Business Insider, saying that “We don't recognize these allegations as an accurate portrayal of activities in our buildings.” The book can be found on Amazon’s website.
  • A New York man is accused of charging more than $8,000 at a Florida resort hotel with a counterfeit credit card, The Tampa Bay Times reported. >> Read more trending news Gavroch Muller Cadet, 27, of Brooklyn, was arrested Monday and charged with multiple counts of forgery of a credit card and a count of possession of marijuana, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.

  • The last of Queen Elizabeth’s corgis was put to sleep after a long struggle with cancer, The Daily Mail reported. The dog, Willow, was nearly 15. >> Read more trending news That means that for the first time since World War II, the Queen, 91, does not have a corgi in her household. Monty Roberts told Vanity Fair she didn’t want to have any more young dogs after 2012 because she didn’t want to “leave any behind,” Time magazine reported. Willow also was part of the Queen’s official 90th birthday portrait in 2016, Time reported. The dog died a week before Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday Willow is one of the Pembroke Welsh corgis that Elizabeth has owned, The New York Times reported. Her first corgi, Susan, was given to her as an 18th birthday present in 1944, the Times reported.  According to Vanity Fair, Elizabeth, then a princess, became so enamored with Susan that she sneaked the dog with her and Prince Philip on their honeymoon in 1947. All of the corgis Elizabeth has owned since then are descendants of Susan, the Times reported. Willow was believed to be part of the 14th generation of dogs descended from Susan.
