At Samantha’s 21st birthday, Alex presents her with a large cake depicting a road.
There were candles down the centre, flowers and trees on either side, and a crashed car with tyre marks, too.
The cake was a lighthearted way to alert the family to the fact that Samantha’s car was destroyed.
Samantha explained: “I was trying to get to an eye lash appointment in the morning but the roads were a bit slippy and as I turned, the wheels spun out and I went straight into a tree.
“I was absolutely fine, luckily I only had a bruised knee. I told my mum about it and that I was OK but she obviously wasn’t pleased about the car being ruined.
“We had planned a party the following weekend and my mum invited my whole family who all turned up.”
“Then the lights went out and in front of everyone my mum brought out this cake while everyone was singing happy birthday.
“I was so shocked at first, I was so upset about losing my car so she said she would make me a special cake but I didn’t realise just how ‘special’ it was going to be.
“I was like ‘Oh my god, that is what you’ve done’ then I just burst into laughter.
“She’s such a comedian, always trying to get one over on all of us so I should have realised it.”
Samantha added: “The worst part is my granddad who bought me the car knew nothing about it.
“It went well and luckily my granddad was OK, he was just happy that I was OK and we all had a big laugh.”
The lass says that the cake “put things into perspective”.
She said: “I was really upset about the car but we’ve all had a laugh about it and it’s a birthday cake I will never forget.
“I didn’t realise what it was at first but as soon as I realised what she had done I nearly died.
“My granddad was right next to me but had no idea the car he brought me was ruined.
“He just put his head in his hands and asked me what it was about, so I had to explain to him that I crashed it.”
