This TokTok baker made a “Buff Baby Yoda” cake, and there’s no turning back. 

TikTok user Amanda, who goes by Baking Thursdays (@bakingthursdays) runs a baking account with over 200,000 followers. But Amanda isn’t just here to teach you how to bake. She’s here to change how you feel about your favorite characters forever! 

After receiving a request to make a “Buff Baby Yoda” cake, Amanda reluctantly got to work. Using yellow sponge cake and green frosting, Amanda crafted the chiseled version of The Mandalorian’s breakout star. This jacked Grogu is far, far away from looking like his adorable on-screen self. 

The video, which has over 300,000 views, caused quite a stir in the comments section. 

“It’s not Baby Yoda anymore, that’s Daddy Yoda,” said one admirer. 

“This feels illegal,” said another user, who was a bit more skeptical of Baby Yoda’s glow up. 

Amanda herself isn’t convinced that this cake should exist, calling the buff Baby Yoda #cursed. 

Cursed as it may be, this Baby Yoda cake isn’t the only buffed-up character cake Amanda has made. Shrek, Carl Wheezer from Jimmy Neutron, and Remy from Ratatouille, have all gotten the buff cake treatment. There’s even a buff Waluigi cake, for all the gamers out there who want to be scarred for life. 

“The things I do for the internet,” said a hesitant Amanda before starting her buff Shrek cake. If buff character cakes are what the people want, then buff character cakes are what the people will get! 

But out of all of Amanda’s buff cakes, none seem quite as jarring as the buff Baby Yoda. In fact, you probably won’t be able to look at him the same way ever again. Is he cute? Is he scary? A bit of both? That’s for you to decide! 

Either way, the cake itself is very impressive and looks even more delicious than a fresh batch of Frog Lady eggs.
