No one likes to be trolled online. But what if you could turn those insults and death threats into a delicious dessert? One New York City baker aims to do just that. Kat Thek, the mastermind behind bakery/detective agency Troll Cakes, takes mean internet comments, uses them to decorate cakes, and then sends those cakes to the trolls behind the comments. Genius, I know.


According to her website, “Each cake is a dense, moist (sorry) chocolate chip brownie with whipped frosting and assorted colorful sprinkles and icing.” And you can either have it sent to your troll’s home or work if you know them personally, or have Thek hunt down the troll for you, or—for the low, low price of $30—you can have a Troll Cake with an insane Trump tweet sent directly to the White House. That option is appropriately named the “Tiny Hands Special.”

You can have your own personalized Troll Cake sent wherever you want as long as it’s in the United States, and there’s a next-day, in-person delivery option for those sending cakes within New York City. According to Mashable, Thek has received a handful of orders so far. She recently sent out her first cake to a Dolly Parton Facebook fan page troll that read, “Your mamma be so disappointed (though most of her orders have capitalized on Trump’s outlandish comments). “Not everybody has an internet troll,” she told the outlet, “But now the whole world has a White House troll.”

Thek told GOOD via email that so far the response has been great. While she says she hasn’t received any feedback from the trolls themselves, she has gotten positive emails from happy customers. “We're shipping every day and especially loving the Mother's Day orders,” said Thek, “It's very cute to see adult children fight tiny battles for their moms via cake.” When asked if she had a fantasy cake recipient, Thek said, “My dream troll is Tony Clifton.”

Now if we can just get our hands on one of these cakes without having to tweet something idiotic.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

We often dismiss our dreams as nonsensical dispatches from the mind while we're deep asleep. But recent research proves that our dreams can definitely affect our waking lives.

People often dream about their significant others and studies show it actually affects how we behave towads them the next day.

"A lot of people don't pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," said Dylan Selterman, psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland, says according to The Huffington Post. "Now we have evidence that there is this association."

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

There is no shortage of proposals from the, um, what's the word for it… huge, group of Democratic presidential candidates this year. But one may stand out from the pack as being not just bold but also necessary; during a CNN town hall about climate change Andrew Yang proposed a "green amendment" to the constitution.
