ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: New York City-based baker Kat Thek has a way to handle internet trolls: let them eat cake. Thek is the owner of Troll Cakes and Detective Agency, which decorates cakes with negative internet comments and sends them to the people who make the comments, known as "trolls" in online parlance. For $30-60 USD, Troll Cakes bakes and decorates cakes using the troll's exact comments and then packs them into confetti-filled boxes to send to trolls' homes or offices. The Troll Cakes website does caution customers that not all orders will be accepted. Troll Cakes also offers to send customers' favorite tweets by U.S. President Donald Trump to the White House. So far, Thek has sent "four or five dozen cakes" but has not yet heard back from any of the recipients.
