Italian Bakery Confuses Birthday Cake Order
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. A little girl in Italy was celebrating her ninth birthday and she wanted a My Little Pony cake. When her parents ordered it from a pastry shop there in Sicily, they were misheard.

The Elvis doppelganger was a singer in the 1960s, and little Evelina had never heard of him. It's MORNING EDITION.
