However, he realised he had ordered from Wendy’s Cakes Bakes & Makes in Rothwell.

Owner Wendy Neary explained on Facebook forum Leedsplace and member Eleanor Quinn realised her husband Christopher Quinn was due to travel to Scotland that day.

He then collected the cake and ensured it reached its destination in time.

Wendy said: “I’ve been blown away with the kindness shown by our lovely Leedsplace readers.

The cake was delivered in time for the party.

“My customer paid for the cake even though he knew it was impossible for him to get it as it was his mistake. That didn’t sit right with me but never in a million years would I have thought it would have been sorted out within an hour.

"You can’t beat Leeds folk.”
