You Have to See This Trippy Color-Changing Cake to Believe It

It's almost unreal.

By Rheanna O'Neil Bellomo, Delish

[post_ads]Like the infamous dress that virtually tore apart the internet with arguments about whether it was black and blue or white and gold, this cake is totally mind-blowing. After being given a quick flick of the wrist, the dessert transforms from orange, yellow, and pink to blue, green, and purple hues. And everyone online is freaking out about the second coming of the color perception war.

 But before you get too excited about this rainbow-filled masterpiece, let us unravel the magic a tiny bit. In her video, YouTuber CharlotteSometimes—who appears to work in the bakery at Karsch's Village Market in another video on her account—spins the sheet cake on a rotating stand and we watch as it changes color like a chameleon.

But here's where the cake differs from the dress, which seemingly changed colors in different lighting. As proven by ocular science, the color perception of the dress was based on individuals' brain functionality. In this case, it's just smart airbrushing.
In fact, the cake is all of these colors at the same time. It's been decorated with waved ridges to create small peaks that were then painted with orange, yellow, and pink food dyes on one side and then green, blue, and purple food dyes on the other side. When you look at it from the right, you see the warm color spectrum. When you glance from the left, you see the cool-color spectrum.

Still don't believe us? Check out this screenshot from the video that shows a middle-ground view from which you can see both sets of colors at play:

Though we've demystified the wonder a little bit, this is still a totally entrancing video we could watch for hours. Kudos to that little grocery-store chain on its mad cake-decorating skills.
