NEW YORK — A Donald Trump cake made a surprise appearance at Trump Tower in midtown Tuesday evening, according to WPIX.
The elaborate bust of the GOP candidate was delivered to the Fifth Avenue building as a "victory cake" for Trump made with chocolate cake and frosting.
It was brought to Trump Tower for photographs and whisked away by several security guards within 20 minutes. But a crowd of supporters and photographers were able to grab a picture of it, where people were heard saying, "It going to taste like victory."
The cake wasn't just a gag dessert bound for the dumpster, however – it was apparently moved to election night headquarters at the Hilton Hotel, according to CNN:

After the sugary bust was spotted on Fifth Avenue, #TrumpCake began trending on Twitter and inspired many memes. Some commented on the cake detail, saying it looked a bit "sad" and compared it to Gollum from "Lord of the Rings." The Trump Cake head was photoshopped into multiple scenarios.
