It doesn’t matter who you are: There’s no better way to your heart than a well-baked cake on your birthday. Even more props if that cake is a cheesecake (which, as we all know, is the best type of cake) (fight me) and even more accolades upon you if there are 50 of them. Because who’s going to refuse 50 cakes on their birthday? No one! (Unless they’re worried about diabetes, which is fair.)
The above pictures, posted to Reddit by user Matmospheric, show a labor of love that would make anyone happy to have this guy as their boyfriend. In honor of his partner’s birthday, he meticulously baked her 50 mini cheesecakes and then presented them to her for tasting. She only took a bite out of each, which means she’s either letting him have the other or that they weren’t that good, but it’s really the thought that counts.
Of course, Reddit being Reddit, pedants everywhere are concerned that A) there are actually only three types of cake, just with different toppings; B) that the girlfriend in the scenario did not eat them all, therefore sullying the cakes and turning them into a “petri dish” of bacteria; and C) that, actually, 50 cheesecakes, even if they’re mini, have so much caloric content that eating them all is an exercise in gluttony as opposed to the enjoyment of a delicious present.
But you know what? The most important thing here is that someone made someone else 50 mini cheesecakes for their birthday. And if that’s not love, well, what the hell is?
