Rainbow Cake Recipe Online Leads To Hilariously Absurd Comment War

by Rebecca Stokes

cake wars

So you go to website to learn how to make a colorful rainbow cake. Sounds innocent enough, right? What harm could come in researching confection? None, right? It turns out, that is not the case. Especially not if the cake you are eyeing is a certain Rainbow-Cake. Oh sure, this beautiful cake might not be made for beginners, it's got it's fair share of challenges and a little bit of advanced techniques. It's only natural that commenters would respond to the recipe with questions, right?

Wrong. Looks like some of the chefs -- pros and amateurs alike -- have been watching too many reality TV shows! What began as just some borderline rude sniping over a question regarding how long to freeze an ingredient quickly degenerated into name-calling of a ludicrous (and, let's be real) totally hilarious fashion. Things that should not ever inspire such ire: CAKES. 

Once the mud-slinging started, it wouldn't stop! One insulted amateur tried to clear their good name, only to have another army of commenters come forth, calling him a troll and worse! We are talking communist name calling, political jabs, obscene rudeness and more. It's actually a really funny read that I can't do justice here. Suffice it with this one before you go forth and read:

This is helpful. This thread confirms that society is f*cked. No doubt about that, the end is near. But at least now there'll be cake! :D

Amen.

I understand that negative commenters dwell everywhere (hi, I write on the internet for a living, this is hardly a revelation), but on a site dedicated to sharing cake recipes? Really?

It's like both the internet and the culinary world have reached a new low. Ultimately, I feel most badly for the poor innocent cake! Can't you picture it? Just sitting there are beautiful and delicious being like, "can't we all just get along?!" Poor cake! 

Why do you think these commenters went so loco?

Because people spend so much of their social interaction time behind a screen they have forgotten how to be normal, decent, human beings and this new wave of "I can say whatever I want to whomever I want in whatever tone I choose" with no repercussions because the person just hits "send" and walks away is not doing society any favors. 

It's shameful and embarrassing, and I doubt 90% of people would say half of what they do if they did not feel like they had the immunity of internet anonymity!
