Have you ever seen a cake so realistic that you forgot it was actually edible? There are cakes that look identical to steaks, rubber ducks, and vegetables (to name a few). Indeed, there are cakes that mimic virtually anything you can imagine, and even Reddit thinks the realistic cake trend has gotten out of control. If you think realistic cakes are only made with beautiful aesthetics, think again. There are cakes that will make your stomach turn, including kitty litter themed cakes, severed bloody heads, and even cockroach themed cakes. If you’re not already feeling uncomfortable, then a realistic button cake might just be the solution that finally puts you over the edge.
One of the most disgusting cakes we’ve ever seen is a realistic pimple cake made for – you guessed it – a dermatologist. If the idea of pimple cake makes you squirm, get ready, because this dessert is actually tiered to represent each layer of skin, complete with hair follicles and multiple pimples. One of the most noticeable features (and arguably the worst) is that the pimples appear when squeezed, oozing white liquid, just like in real life. The cake video, complete with the pimple popping, is definitely something you can’t take your eyes off of, even if your brain is telling you “NO.” Of course, we had to share this video with our readers, but be warned: this might be the most disgusting thing you’ll see today.

Could you eat button cake?
The TikTok user behind this pimple cake designed the dessert for his sister’s boss, a dermatologist who is presumably no stranger to popping pimples. As only a dermatologist could do, they expertly squeeze the pimples while wearing latex gloves, producing a white, pus-like substance. According to the video, it’s just vanilla pudding, but given the “eeks” and “ahhs” heard, that’s a little hard to believe.
People were quick to share their thoughts on the video and comment on whether they could eat the cake themselves. Many commenters think the dessert looks awesome and realistic, but more importantly, it’s not appetizing enough to eat. One person wrote: “It’s creative, but I couldn’t even get paid to eat it.” The mind is a delicate thing! » Many praise the baker for his skill and attention to detail – down to the veins and nuances – but it’s unclear whether anyone actually consumed the cake. Some social media users are asking this very question, but the answer remains unknown. Rest assured, though, if a bumpy dessert is too much to handle, there are plenty of other cake recipes that don’t look like bumpy skin.
