Bakery wouldn't write Summa Cum Laude on cake due to profanity

posted by Corbin -

A family wanted to celebrate their songs graduation from High School with a Sheet Cake.  Jacob graduated with a 4.79 GPA and was ready to head to college.  His mother ordered a cake online through the local grocers website.  When she entered the phrase Summa Cum Laude, the websites algorithm and flagged the phrase replacing it with Summa --- Laude.  The word in question is Latin for 'With'.  The phrase is commonly used for students who are in the top 1-5% of their class.  Jacob says the whole thing is embarrassing and humiliating: "I had to explain to my friends and family … what that meant.  They were giggling uncontrollably."   The grocery store offered to redo the cake, but the party was over, so they returned the $70 for the cake and a gift card to the grocer.
