This Viral Cake-Themed Twitter Account Is Too Bizarre

Getting a little bored with relying on TikTok for all your entertainment? Why not go old-school and try Twitter once more? Sure, in recent years it's seemed to trend towards the boringly political, but there are still a few Twitter accounts out there that stick to the strictly wacky without once attempting to persuade, dissuade, or otherwise change the world. No, the sole purpose of such accounts lies in amusing you or maybe just eliciting the odd, "What the heck?" Speaking of the latter, if you're a fan of random weirdness, you've got to check out "cakes with threatening auras."

Admittedly, part of what's so fun with this is figuring out just what the account owner found to be so threatening about the cakes included. Sure, some have rude messages such as the succinct "DIE" or the painfully personal "I think we should see other people." Others just appear to be your basic Nailed It!-type fails. Still other cakes may be seen as slightly menacing due to their situations, such as the one under attack by costumed cats or the one being nibbled in an alley by a pack of rats. There are even a few that belong to the hyper-realistic cake genre that had everybody glued to their phones last summer. The fun of this account, however, may lie in the fact that you bring your own interpretation to each cake pictured so you're free to pick and choose which ones you consider to be sinister — and why.

These cakes filled us with foreboding...

Despite the subjective nature of determining cake threats, we nevertheless took it upon ourselves to pick out our own top six candidates for the most dubious cake. Coming in at number six are these Dad Head Cakes, mostly because it's evident that some grocery chain thought it was a good idea to produce and market these. (And imagine the lucky dads who got to cut into them on Father's Day!) At number five is this icky hot dog cake, a seeming homage to disgusting retro food trends of years (thankfully) gone by, made even more threatening by its aggressively weiner-ish aspect. Number four represents the unwanted return of 2007 trend Rickrolling, only in a sugary, pun-filled format: "Never going to run around and 'dessert' you," indeed!

At number three we either have televangelist Elmo praising the Muppet god (the late Jim Henson, one presumes) or else drowning Elmo going down for a third time. Number two sees us apparently being mooned by Shrek. Our first-place winner is... who knows what (the Cookie Monster?), but it appears to be some kind of scary blue blob vomiting up... pickles? Ritz crackers? Maybe cookies, but still, gross.

But this one was actually kind of accurate

One last cake deserves not just a dishonorable mention, but perhaps even the grand prize, for its timely comment on current (or maybe current) affairs. This "Happy New Year 2020" cake, in light of everything that happened, is eerily appropriate: just like the year it commemorates, it's a hot mess.

For one thing, while the "2020" is neatly centered, the "Happy New Year" part is crowded in a corner and seems to be slanting in several different directions at once. For another, who uses raisins to spell out words on top of a cake? If those are even raisins, that is. They're not symmetrical enough to be chocolate chips, but, considering the message, perhaps they're rabbit poop or dried bugs. Still, taken all in all, this cake was a pretty accurate symbol of all the wonders the first year of the new decade would hold in store for us.
