Just look at this thing.

There are a lot of things you can say about this election, but perhaps nothing sums up today’s result like this video of a sad Donald Trump cake being wheeled into Trump Tower.

Congratulations, America — you just voted en masse for a guy who thought this cake was a good idea.

The cake’s creator, Melissa Alt, told The Boston Globe that she was “trying to capture Trump in the images I took of him from the internet, and just worked from them”.

In Melissa’s defence, the likeness is strong — it’s just a very, very sad looking cake.
