Help Trevor Noah figure out what to do with Trump’s inauguration cake

One of Donald Trump’s multiple inauguration balls featured a cake that was a knockoff of one used to celebrate his predecessor’s second term. Luckily, D.C.’s Buttercream Bake Shop took the directive to recreate something from the Obama administration quite literally: the shop supported gay rights advocacy by donating the proceeds to the Human Rights Campaign. Now their creation is providing a different kind of joy: the cake has somehow landed on The Daily Show’s doorstep/soundstage, where host Trevor Noah discovered the thing is as fake as Trump’s hair.


With the cake now in his possession, Noah needs help figuring out what to do with it. So he’s called upon Daily Show viewers to tweet their suggestions with the hashtag #TrumpCake. There are a couple of caveats, though: there will be no wanton destruction of or urination on the cake. Otherwise, go nuts with your suggestions.
