“Please Tell Me My Family Isn’t Cake”—32 “These Are All Cakes” Memes

We can’t escape the cake discourse and the threat of being cut open to reveal if we’re cake or not. Why? Well, theoretically, it’s because BuzzFeed Tasty shared a compilation video of @redrosecake_tubageckil‘s realistic cakes, which truly take fondant and edible paint to the next level of optical illusions. The video features convincing-looking shoes, toilet paper, and so many other things you’re sure are anything but cake. But they are. They are cake.

This sort of craft isn’t unheard of, and yet the video sparked intense Twitter talk about how everything around us could be cake. I think it’s because many people have been in quarantine or isolated for months and months. Much of the stuff that made up their everyday life has been completely upended. A video that suggests everything in the world is actually cake hits very different under these circumstances.

Just as things were dying down, yet ANOTHER realistic cake video started circulating (though it had been released previously), sending people screaming onto Twitter yet again:

Many of the jokes are basically the same: what if this is cake? They’re still pretty funny. At least until you start to actually wonder if everything in your life is cake. Which you will, because the world is just crazy enough for that to be true.
