Food Theory: Testing the McDonalds McFlurry Cake! (Viral TikTok Hack)
SUBSCRIBE to NEVER Miss a Food Theory! ►►
TikTok is becoming the place to find unusual food hacks. One that caught my eye was the McFlurry cake. I am what you would call a connoisseur of the McDonalds McFlurry and I wanted to find out if I could really get a McFlurry flavored cake. Today, I am seeing if this popular TikTok hack WORKS and if the McFlurry is the best choice... or if some other fast food ice cream treat would do it better. Theorists, let's eat CAKE!

    Cake seems like a huge step down from being an ice cream.

    Also, why don't they video-capture themselves as much? They're good looking people. Then again, yeah, maybe most of their contents don't need actual footage of them.

    The problem of the flavors is the fact that ice creams flavor mostly comes from the smell.

    Egg is a useful emulsifier--the "history" it that for mix it was pointless, but the reality is that mix started selling better because it tasted better once people started adding egg

    I feel like maybe getting some real ice cream, like a quart of plain vanilla and maybe a pint of whatever Ben & Jerry's you prefer, may have been useful to pick up as a control group. Try making some cake with plain, regular ice cream so you have something to compare your fast food frozen snack cakes against other than other fast food frozen snack cakes.

    Also, Mattpatt. It should be noted the tiktok'er likely had a McFlurry from england and it's well-known that we tend to have different recipes due to different regulations. So while a UK Mcflurry might work, a USA one might not. I can't find direct evidence of this; but every other item on the menu (including fries.) has vastly different ingredients. Additionally, self-raising flower tends to be the standard flour found. I recall cooking in NYC (made battered fish. NOT BEER BATTERED. THATS NOT NORMAL) and couldn't find self-raising. So it wasn't as puffy as it is at home, but was well-recieved.

  • Jonatc87

    Banana can and is often substituted for pancake batter in recipes. So makes sense banana might lead in this race.


    Ollie: *ask politely for ice cream* Also ollie: *refuses a oreo cake*

    As a wise man once said, "There is no such thing as a bad cake." That's dumb because there clearly is a bad cake if a BABY doesn't accept it! Honestly, I'm disappointed in you, MatPat. smh

    My grandma used to always make us 3,2,1 cake. 3 tablespoons of angel food cake mix (any flavor), 2 tablespoons of water, 1 Minute in the microwave. You should top it with Carmel or chocolate drizzle its so good!

    Because the flour to sugar ratio was off, that's why they all taste plain unless you add more flavor or sugar.

    Here's you a food theory. Cookout's milkshakes are not milkshakes. They're just ice cream served in a cup. While they give you a straw when you order one, they also give you a spoon. And they know no one will be able to drink those things unless you wait for the ice cream to melt, or you have the sucking power of a jet engine. If you can't drink it, it's not milkshake.

    Did he just.. low key Rick roll us?

    Next experiment, why don't combine 2 of these things to create a different cake maybe it will have a better chemical reaction causing at least to taste maybe a bit better, having more flavour who knows, maybe the key is using 2 with one that actually have an ending result to be really testy.

    But remember this, cake usually has frosting or icing on it, making it more flavorful. If you just ate the cake part, it probably wouldn't be far off from the McFlurry cake.
