The Lion King Birthday Cake That Goed Mad was made by the Minneapolis Bakery

A 3-year-old’s unusual birthday cake request went viral on the internet, and her candy desires were met by a Twin Cities bakery.

Uncle Casey Feigh shared the story on Twitter and showed pictures of his niece Leona and the cake they were making for their 3rd birthday.

The reason for your request? Because “everyone will be too sad to eat the cake and it will be everything for me,” says Leona.


The cake, and its traumatizing portrayal of the moment Mufasa was devastated to death by a herd of wildebeest, was created by the Thirsty Whale Bakery at 4149 North Fremont Avenue in Minneapolis.

Feigh’s tweet has been retweeted nearly 100,000 times since it was posted on Saturday (that’s a lot) and has helped raise Thirsty Whale’s profile.

“Happy birthday to the smartest 3 year old out there. You are a clever Leona!” The bakery announced this on its Facebook page.
