Often times when I am faced with something and I am not convinced that I want to go through with it, I ask myself, what is the best possible outcome? With this challenge I am seeing on TikTok the best possible outcome is not ruining your birthday cake. Which means I want nothing to do with this challenge. Many families are making this a new tradition around birthdays, would you ever try the Cake Flip Challenge?

Yep, it's exactly as crazy as it sounds, we're talking about a perfectly delicious birthday cake that everyone could enjoy being thrown into the air by the person celebrating the birthday just to see if they can do it. The whole concept just doesn't make sense to me. Purchasing a birthday cake is often not cheap, so why would you want to take a chance where is it destroyed before anyone can even taste the cake?

It's Not Just Kids Doing This TikTok Challenge

While almost all of these viral challenges online are done by kids, you will see with the videos below that this cake flipping challenge is being done by kids of all ages. I did think it was hilarious in the video below by one lady who has to throw the cake in the air four times before she understands how to make it flip.

What Ever Happened to the Old Saying "Don't Play With Your Food"

For years growing up my parents always used to say, "don't play with your food." I guess that old saying is out the window because of this new social media challenge. While I don't plan on ever participating in the cake flip challenge I do enjoy seeing others take a turn at flipping their own cake in the air.
