As the saying goes, “you can’t have your cake and eat it too!” So which would you rather? It’s a difficult choice but unfortunately you can’t have both! Are you team having or team eating? Does the cake even really exist? We’ll find out soon! Let the battle begin!

The competition begins on Thursday, November 21st at 11 AM ET and runs for 24 hours.

Having your cake:

  • Looks nice
  • Smells pretty good
  • You can think about how good it might taste if you ate it!

Eating your cake:

  • Tastes like cake!
  • Satisfies your hunger
  • Makes room on the shelf for future cakes!
