Leona, a 3-year-old girl who recently celebrated her birthday, didn’t want anyone else to have a slice of her cake.
So she devised a plan — make people too sad to eat the cake.
So, Leona requested that her birthday cake depict the scene from “The Lion King” where Mufasa dies. Yes, the scene where Uncle Scar lets Mufasa fall off the cliff right in front of Simba, according to NBC News.
“Everyone will be too sad to eat the cake and it will be all for me,” she said, according to a Twitter post, which was posted by her uncle, Casey Feigh.
My niece turned 3 today!! She asked for a Lion King cake but specifically the moment where Mufasa dies, because “everyone will be too sad to eat the cake and it will be all for me.” pic.twitter.com/UOatqCUSj0

Leona’s mother, Alison Feigh, told the “Today” show the decision fits her girl’s personality.
“Leona is hilarious and quirky,” she told the “Today” show. “She’s also a very empathetic, sweet kid.”
It was the Thirsty Whale Bakery in Minneapolis that made the cake, according to the New York Post. The bakery made the cake with cookies and cream sugar. It shows Simba standing in the desert, looking over his dead father Mufasa.
Dark, but a good strategy?
