We've seen some seriously over-the-top rainbow cakes before — even one with an exploding candy core — but evidently we had never seen the world's "gayest cake"... until now.
Padma Lakshmi, host of Bravo's Top Chef, posted a video to Twitter that may actually include photographic evidence of such a cake. In the clip, Padma stands at a pride event alongside writer-actress Lena Waithe. After both women wish viewers a "happy gay pride, everybody" — and Waithe adds the important message, "be yourselves" — Padma does the honors of cutting into a heavily iced sheet cake decked with rainbow icing and a likeness of a rainbow flag. Watching the process, Lena comments, "This is like the gayest cake ever... which is... exciting."
Inside, more colors give the cake pizazz. "Oh wow — they actually did it!" Padma notes. Waithe adds, "It's like a marble situation."
So there you have it, folks — the "gayest cake" ever, according to Lena Waithe. Though we admit that we have not independently verified the claim.
