Woman Bakes ‘Tiger King’-Themed Cake for Friend’s Birthday
Let’s be real here: Tiger King wasn’t an amazing show, we’ve all just seen it because we’re bored out of our minds in quarantine.
We will say, it has provided us all with a ton of memes and the desperate need to know what happened to Carole Baskin first husband — oh, and inspiration.
A woman in England, Tasha King, from York, says she baked the cake for her friend’s birthday, Southwest News Service (SWNS) reports.
According to her, this was her first attempt at making a celebrity cake… Looks like she found her talent!
She told SWNS, “It was my best friend’s birthday on Monday, I figured I’d bake something for her that was guaranteed to fetch a few laughs.”
King added that her friend “had actually tagged me in a post earlier that week of a hilarious Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin cake and thought I have to bake this. I take credit for the tiger print effect though. It was a surprise cake – she had no idea I was bringing it around. She thought it was hilarious. She thought the show was equally as hilarious as I did.”
“Being heavily pierced myself, the eyebrow ring is actually a 1.2mm ring (sterilized of course),” King said. “It’s a pretty bog-standard sponge cake recipe, so nothing exciting to report there.”
King says that she was lucky enough to have the needed ingredients for the cake’s design on hand. According to her, going to the supermarket for supplies has been “a nightmare.”
