Let them not eat cake!

... or how to ruin a perfectly good birthday cake.

Taiwanese have this (annoying) custom of destroying (expensive) brithday cakes at gatherings. Some thoughtful person, or the birthday boy or girl themselves, will buy a cake that cost about NT$500 or more (you do the math).

All of a sudden, someone will dip into the cream on the cake and ambush the birthday victim, smearing cream on them starting on the face. People get carried away, dipping their hands into the cake, and then, finally, everyone has cake and cream on them.

Who wants to eat a mauled birthday cake after that?
Who likes to have the smell of cream slowly going bad on their hands, face and clothes?

If it were me, I'd be pretty damn mad. These guys seem to be enjoying themselves though.
Respect the cake man! Respect the birthday boy or girl!
