A woman in England who recently celebrated her birthday requested a cake decorated with a picture of her favorite singer, Mariah Carey. However the birthday girl was probably feeling emotions when she saw the result, which was topped not with the singer of “Hero” but with the face of one of science’s heroes: Marie Curie, who conducted groundbreaking work on radioactivity.

As a cake topper, the renowned scientist looked “very festive,” said writer Harriet Alida Lye, who tweeted a photo of the cake on June 14.

Lye’s tweet about her cousin’s cake — which read “Happy Birthday Siobhan” around Curie’s somber face, and was surrounded by pink-frosted cupcakes — was shared more than 43,000 times, and has since received over 200,000 likes. [The 10 Noblest Nobel Prize Winners of All Time]

Carey’s prowess as a musician is notable: She is a world-renowned recording artist who earned five Grammy Awards since the release of her debut album in 1990.
