“Whoever invented the rice cake had a pretty loose concept of ‘cake‘“

Many people believe that the “rice cake” shouldn’t be called a “cake.” “Whoever it was that invented rice cakes doesn’t understand what a cake is” was posted on Twitter by Tim Burdon on August 11, 2012. “Whoever invented rice cakes knows nothing about cakes and must have grown up in a terrible, cakeless home” was posted on Twitter by Alli Lahiff on March 2, 2013.

“Whoever invented the rice cake had a pretty loose concept of ‘cake’” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on June 14, 2021.

“Rice cakes have no right calling themselves ‘cake’ at all” is a related saying.


Wikipedia: Rice cake
A rice cake may be any kind of food item made from rice that has been shaped, condensed, or otherwise combined into a single object that has also been sweetened. A wide variety of rice cakes exist in many different cultures in which rice is eaten, and are particularly prevalent in Asia. Common variations include cakes made with rice flour, those made from ground rice, and those made from whole grains of rice compressed together or combined with some other binding substance.

Rice cakes are perhaps the most cynically disappointing introduction to the concept of “cake” for toddlers

Asians clearly didn’t understand what cake was when we invented rice cakes
