What is the Cake Challenge on TikTok? 

Instead of a delicious treat, the Cake Challenge is a trend that shows how big someone’s behind is by rolling a weight over them. 

People are lining up their friends at their local gym or workout spot to lay down frontwards showing their behind. Then someone will roll a barbell over that person…

For some people with bigger behinds, the barbell will just catch it and not go any forward, but for people with smaller behinds, the barbell will just roll over them.
