A wife wanted to get a special cake for her husband’s birthday.

The wife, Emily McGuire, knew that one of his favorite things was receiving Amazon packages.

She told CNN that he receives two or three shipments a week.

The next step seemed obvious.

She contracted with a local bakery to make a birthday cake that looks just like an Amazon package.

She told CNN that she didn’t believe it was actually a cake.

“I laughed so hard. I thought it was a real box at first,” said Emily McGuire,

Sweet Dreams Bakery in North Carolina craft the cake. McGuire says it cost $50.

A kitchen-themed Facebook page “Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons” shared the pictures of the cake.

The pictures have been liked more than 26,000 times.

A Twitter account shared a picture of the interior of cake. This picture puts aside any doubts as to whether it was actually a cake.

McGuire shared pictures of the cake on her company Facebook page.
