CHILDREN can have the most hilarious ideas, and one three-year-old has left people in stitches thanks to her unusual birthday cake request.
A man named Casey Feigh shared photos of his niece’s birthday cake on Twitter, saying she had requested it be of one particularly depressing Lion King scene.
“My niece turned three today!! She asked for a Lion King cake but specifically the moment where Mufasa dies, because ‘everyone will be too sad to eat the cake and it will be all for me.’,” he said.
For those not in the know, Mufasa is a major character in Disney’s The Lion King.
He was the king of the Pride Lands and the father of Simba and was eventually killed by his brother, Scar, in an effort to steal the throne.
He died by Scar pushing him into a gorge, where he was trampled to death by a stampede of wildebeest, which Scar had orchestrated.
While the three-year-old’s idea behind the cake seems dark, commenters have proven that her idea would work.
“That’s a little dark, but she’s not wrong,” one person said.
“I need a stern talk with whoever made this claw mark, this is what I call too much attention to detail,” someone else said.
A third person added: “The cake looks horrible but I dig her motives.”
Others said the depressing aspect of the cake would just make people eat more.
“If she was thinking at all she’d realise that sadness makes us eat more cake,” a commenter wrote.

“She is gonna learn a hard lesson of comfort eating,” said another.
Other people commended the child for the idea, with many saying this is impressive thinking for a three-year-old.
“Girl gonna grow up and be in politics someday,” one commenter said.
Another person added: “This child is going places in life. That’s some great critical thinking at the age of three.”
