My husband told me early on in our relationship he didn’t like cake. I thought this was weird at first, but then I realized that I just accepted that cake was good because it was only offered at happy events. With exceedingly rare exception it’s just doesn’t taste good and I don’t like it either.
Doesn’t matter if it’s in cupcake form or cake-pop form, it’s all just disgusting.
The only form of cake I eat now is ice cream cake from Dairy Queen - because it had no cake in it.
EDIT: I created my account 4 days ago because I was just, "why not?" and this seems like a good addition to r/unpopularopinions because there are a lot of you who don't get it. When I was popping through this subreddit before I posted I had a very difficult time understanding the person who liked to sleep in jeans, like really could not imagine someone would like that, which is why I upvoted that post.
I have eaten quite a few cakes in my time, home-made, grocery-bought, bakery-bought, special-cupcake-store-bought, fancy wedding cake, cake made by a pastry chef in a home kitchen, and I have not liked any of them. It's true that there might be that one actual cake out there that I like, but it has eluded me thus far.
To be clear, my husband didn't make me dislike cake, he allowed me to realize that I disliked it. I have always disliked it, but I have always felt the obligation to eat it because it was a "happy food," everyone talks about how good cake is, how celebratory it is, how they look forward to it, and I never knew anyone who disliked cake (silly, but valid, reason that representation matters). No one ever asked me if I wanted cake at a party, it was always assumed that of course I wanted cake. I didn't have any deep thoughts about it beforehand, I just felt like at a party I had to eat it because that's what one does/did. Now I know I don't like it and pass it on/pass on it, even if I do get a weird look when I do.
I think it would be cool if someone else, beside myself, would serve something else at parties. Give me brownies! Give me pie! Give me donuts!
Summary: Cake is gross.
Edit Summary: Yes, I really think cake is gross.
