Maybe it can be a little decorative and fun and hide a joke somewhere but what I’m not prepared for is a cake to wreck my brain before it pads my stomach. Take a look at this optical illusion, color changing, shape shifting (it’s not shape…

I'll admit it, I was a doubter. When I saw this chocolate cake, I couldn't imagine it ever blowing my mind. Even when it started spinning, I didn't see what the hoopla was all about.
