I have torn emotions about this cake. There's a bakery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, called Thirsty Whale Bakery, that made a really sad 'Lion King'-themed cake for a three-year-old's birthday party. The thing is, that three-year-old requested this very specific cake!

Leona turned three at the end of May and she wanted a 'Lion King' cake. But not just any ole 'Lion King' cake. She wanted the cake to depict the scene when Mufasa falls off the cliff and dies as Sumba watched in horror from the top of the cliff. That's what this little girl wanted as her birthday cake! But why?

Well, Leona's uncle Casey Tweeted about the cake and her birthday saying she wanted this specific scene because “everyone will be too sad to eat the cake and it will be all for me.” Hilarious!

But like I said, I have torn emotions about this cake. First of all, I'm kind of impressed by whoever the baker was that made this cake because they did exactly want Leona wanted and it looks really good. But second of all, it's such a sad scene for a little girl to want on her birthday cake. It's supposed to be a happy day! But at the same time, she may be the smartest three-year-old ever because her thought process is genius.
