Everything Is Cake Meme: Explained + Funniest Viral Reactions
By now we're sure you've seen the viral "everything is cake" meme that's swept the internet and has many seriously questioning their own reality.
So, what exactly is the "everything is cake meme?"
It all started when BuzzFeed's Tasty shared a video compilation of desserts via Twitter over the weekend. The clip sees a chef cutting seemingly realistic everyday objects — like Crocs, fruits, vegetables, toilet paper, soap and plants — only to reveal that they're actually edible cakes with hyper-realistic fondant.
The cakes are made by Chef Tuba Geçkil of Red Rose Cake (@redrosecake_tubageckil), who specializes in making realistic 3-D cakes that look like real objects.
It's safe to say that Twitter was amazed by the level of detail and realism the baker has been able to achieve because the video has already amassed over 29 million views, as well as 150K retweets and 338K likes, at the time of this article
