Twitter ponders the very meaning of our existence by showing us that we might all just be cake.
Wondering why your Twitter feed has been flooded with pictures of people cutting into everyday objects to see if they are made of cake? It makes zero sense, but it's happening—and it's happening right now. The posts are nothing short of amazing, with shots of everyday household items turning out to be very realistic looking cakes.
This has, for some reason, sparked the existential question to be put out to the Twitterverse: “If everything is cake, are we cake?”

People cannot get over how real these cakes look, and the responses are everything from amazed to wacky.

My feed has made me paranoid that everything and everyone in my life is cake. I feel like I'm living in the Truman show, but it's cake.— Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolender) July 14, 2020
Some folks have tried their own hand at making super-realistic cakes:
But others just cannot seem to get the hang of it ...

And some people just want it to stop.
Why is everything made of cake?! Why am I seeing so many cakes on my timeline?! 2020 is a nightmare for so many reasons outside of this pandemic.— Rachel K. (@fearlessknox) July 14, 2020
Back from a three day weekend. Apparently, everything is made of cake, Facebook is working to make hashtags a viable component on their platform, and it's #NationalNudeDay. One of these is false, one of these is true, and one of these...well, click at your own risk. 🙈😅— Bill Gaither (@BillGaither) July 14, 2020
Turns out everything is cake. Everything. If your feed is free of it, you're lucky! 😂— Ruthless Librarian (@RuthlessMLS) July 14, 2020
The complexity deepens when one takes a deeper look. If everything is cake, then what is cake? Do you see the dilemma? The mind can bend all sorts of ways to try and understand the Pandora's Box of complexities that line of thought opens.

I've always wondered... if everything is made of cake, what are cakes made of? 🤯 pic.twitter.com/O6lzaC0HYL
In 2007, we learned the cake was a lie.— Anything but Norm(al) (@NormF141) July 14, 2020
In 2020, we learned everything is cake.
By the transitive property, everything is a lie.
Could we all just be cake? Would life be easier as a cake? If one were a cake, would 2020 be less horrific? There are so many questions and not enough answers. The #cake trend is a welcome internet rabbit hole for anyone who might want to go there.
