Kris initially thought that the amount was Ghc819 but was shocked to confirm it was much more.

"I really looked at it, and it was Ghc6,994, and we almost had a bloody heart attack. I flicked through the screen about 30 times. That's how long the order was. It was like 99 cakes.
I had steam coming out of my ears, first of all, screaming his name down the street. He ran to his room before I told him so," he said.

Kris, a firefighter, said they place orders on UberEats every day, and Christian must have learned how to do it by observing them.

Refund

The enormous order was delivered to Newtown Fire Station, where Kris works.

Kris and his wife reached out to Ube Eats, and lucky for them, the company agreed to refund the money after learning what happened.

"The icing on the cake was when UberEats said they will give us our money back," the delighted dad said.
