Weve seen plenty of mums who dont quite get Facebook but one mums social media mix-up cost her £200.

Virginia Kavanagh posted a picture of a cake she found on Google when wishing her daughter Laurens friend Beth a happy 18th birthday.

The cake was a personalised frozen cake with the name Beth on the side Olaf on the side and Elsa on top.

She added the message: Happy 18th birthday princess, hope you have a wonderful day, you have always been our favourite!! Lots of love VV & Stephen xxx.

But when Beth responded with a message that suggested she thought the cake was a real gift from Virginia, she panicked.

Beth posted: OMG CANT BELIEVE THIS!! Thank you so much, Virginia and Stephen! Ill need to pop round today and have some xxx.

Daughter Lauren revealed the story on Twitter, three years later, and people loved it.
