These ultra-realistic cakes are tearing people apart

Look at this plant.

What would you expect to find inside if you cut it in half. Probably just dirt and some plant gunk, right?


It’s actually a cake.

As is this “Crocs” lookalike.

And this pair of “bananas.”

Although ultra-realistic cakes are nothing new to social media, a recent compilation video shared on Twitter is causing people to doubt the very fabric of time and space.

The instigating clip — which features mostly cakes made by a Turkish cake and sugar artist — was shared on BuzzFeed’s Tasty Twitter account on July 8, with the simple caption, “These Are All Cakes.”

Little did their social media manager know, all hell was about to break loose.

Since the video was shared, it has racked up over 31 million views, as well as countless replies and reactions from people who just don’t know who or what they can trust not to be cake anymore.
