This cake was inspired by an event that played out on social media in July of 2021. Instead of tagging the artist on Instagram or mentioning the company here, I felt it more informative to link to this news article here where you can watch her video and link to the original video.

Escondido woman’s plea on TikTok goes viral after harassment during art contest

“A little skin. That’s all that’s going on for me. See I always tell you guys. It’s all about the middle of the video. So boobs always get a lot of views. This is true, I say it all the time. I’m here competing against boobs and it’s hard to compete against boobs on social media. No guy can compete against boobs,”

Original Text from the Instagram Post:

Don’t tell the others, but I love this photo of the cake the best!

I wanted to make this cake for a long time. The idea was sparked by a terrible but typical harassment that played out publicly on social media in July 2021. I looked at all of accounts involved and it seems like it’s all blown over, but it stayed in my artistic “compost heap.”

I’ll link to the original story on this image in “The Window” on my website if you want the details.

(The gist is that a well known man and part owner of a company commented extensively about a female creator’s body during a contest video and made remarks about how a man could never compete with those body parts on social media!)
