Following the viral rice cake photo of the President on his birthday, where he is seen blowing a candle that’s planted on a cup of rice instead of a cake, another post has gone viral. But one that’s “legit na cake hindi legit na rice,” according to the owner of the post.
What is it? This! A Facebook post about this genius creation—a cake designed to look like a cup of rice, alluding to the President’s birthday rice cake.
The creator of the cake, a bakeshop in Pasig City called Nicelybaked, wrote in their post:
Simpleng cake para sa mga simpleng handaan. We humbly present our own version of rice cake—legit na cake hindi legit na rice.

This rice cake is available for P450 pesos, and comes in a size as big as a lunchbox, according to Nicelybaked (4 x 2 inches). You can order it in either red velvet or chocolate flavor, which is made with a chocolate ganache filling and buttercream frosting. Yum.
You might have to wait before you can get to taste this rice cake, though. In a follow-up post, the brand shared that they’re overwhelmed with inquiries, but thanking everyone for taking an interest. They wrote:
