We are pretty sure you guys have seen the videos where realistic-looking objects are sliced with a knife only to reveal cake inside.
In fact, the ‘everything is cake phenomenon’ is taking over the internet.
According to a report in Mothership
quoting New York Times, the trend started after BuzzFeed Tasty shared a compilation of videos from the Instagram feed of a baker @redrosecake_tubageckil.
The report also said that this is not a new trend because there was a Japanese game show that went viral after contestants were required to bite into various objects to determine if it is made of candy.
Quoting a psychology professor at Wheaton College Rolf Nelson, the report said people are obsessed with such videos because they are ‘fascinated by the quality of illusion’.
