Review: Clown Cake

clown cake

This is a photograph of a birthday cake available at Dunkin Donuts. It’s hard to tell from the camera phone photo, but the clowns’ eyes are X’ed out in the cartoon “death” style similar to when a cartoon character has (usually temporarily) died. At first I was disturbed by the way these clowns seem to have been taken out, assassination style, falling cleanly to the ground in nearly identical poses. But then I realized that maybe that was the birthday gift, as if the cake was sending a message: “Some clowns were going to ruin your birthday, but I took them out in the manner of a professional hit man. Happy Birthday.”
Thanks, frosting clown vigilante. Watch out, frosting clowns.
