Evil Horse Cake Will Challenge Your Affection for Red Velvet

This demonic horse with its flesh falling off its bones is actually made almost entirely of red velvet cake. Presumably it is the evil twin of this Unicorn rainbow cake. Unfortunately we will never get to see what happens when the two cakes meet, because they were both devoured.
