A kind-hearted mum who baked a cake to wish her son luck as he went to university probably regretted it when it ended up looking offensive.

An image of the cake, posted by someone who claims to be a friend of the woman, was shared on social networking site reddit .

The cake looks innocent enough and many people have failed to spot what’s wrong with it.

But once you see it, there’s no going back.

Blue icing on the sweet treat reads “GOOD LUCK @ UNI”. However, the @ symbol looks a bit like a fancy C, and the ‘I’ in uni looks more like a T.

So you can imagine why people think it comes across as offensive.

The photograph, posted with the caption ‘A friend baked a cake for her son last week’, has received more than 17,000 ‘upvotes’.

Some reddit users hadn’t even noticed the rude-looking word, with one saying: “I just thought this was a post about a cake.”
