For decades, cakes have been synonymous with birthdays. Nothing screams joy as much as cutting the popular dessert to the sounds of confetti poppers in the background. Over the past few years, however, we’ve realised that everyday is a celebration in itself. Gone are the times when cake shops only piped ‘Happy Birthday’ onto the confection. Today, we honour everything from divorces and pregnancies to… car accidents and even calling the cops on your neighbours.

And this is exactly what ‘Cakes with threatening auras’ is here to document. As an “educational” Twitter account, the social media project features all sorts of creations—from the most comical cakes to the downright bizarre ones that will haunt your dreams forever.

So, what are you waiting for? Take the whisk with us and scroll through these cursed cakes that will make you believe there are two types of people on the internet today: those who bake and those who get baked.
