    I love when she said "fat girl moment" because it's true that you become fat when you eat tons of yummy cake all the time... where is the lie??

    Looking at the cake... I suppose I may enjoy the taste. But the asymmetry is killing me. Why are the layers so messy!? Is it supposed to be abstract art?

    Just reading the comments below and it just shows how sad people are. What's wrong with the fat girl comment, people get fat when they eat to much junk food that's a fact, people who take offense to this need a reality check. That's the problem with society today nobody can say anything with out somebody taking offense.

    People getting offended over 'fat girl moment' makes me very confused. I'm a chubby girl who is trying to lose weight for a while now (I am slowly losing it but my metabolism is not the best). And I don't understand why that is offensive. It totally is not, they are clearly joking and not shaming anyone. Why are everyone so sensitive these days.

    I find it unfair that vanilla cake with sprinkles is officially labelled "birthday cake". Now don't get me wrong, I like vanilla cake but why call in "Birthday cake"? A birthday cake is any cake used to celebrate a birthday, regardless of flavor.

  • Naomi M

    Honestly this cake seems like it would be way too artificial and sweet. Good cakes are made of whole, fresh ingredients. You should never *try* to make your cake taste like a boxed cake. "Clear vanilla extract" that's not vanilla extract??? Vanilla beans are brown. "Clear vanilla extract" is artificial flavouring.

    Vanilla essence and corn syrup, bleck. I'd want pure extract or pods and there are better sweeteners out there. Shortening should be replaced with butter.

    • Magpie Randoms
      Magpie Randoms 2 months ago

      Maybe in the US but not in the UK. We use butter for our cakes and our icing. You might like it and that's great, but I can taste the difference. Charging the earth for a product with inferior ingredients to be sold is shocking. The cost of the cake would allow for far better ingredients to be used. If people want to pay a fortune for poor quality food then I guess it's up to them, but I'd have to be a bit more discerning.

    • Kayla Deal
      Kayla Deal 2 months ago

      Damn... Here I was thinking we lived in a world where something can be made multiple ways! The blasphemy. Shortening in icing is actually quite tasty. In fact, most bakeries use it.
