Just like all good patriotic Indonesians, we love us some Indomie. Whether it be Indomie Mi Goreng or Rasa Soto Mie, potato chip or InTerNet, we’ve yet to encounter a form of Indomie that we haven’t been eager to devour.
But, this… Well, this we’re not so sure about.

This photo of an Indomie cake went viral on Twitter over the weekend and we were equally intrigued and disturbed by its implications. But we had to know more – was this a regular cake made to look like Indomie with some impressive frosting technique or was this really a cake created out of actual Indomie?
After a bit of research we found the original source:
Slamat ulang taon, Slamat ulang taon… Lhoh siapa yang ulang taon? Bukan minTOT pastinya karena minTOT baru 5bulan. MinTOT persembahkan buat kamu yang mau ulang taon, tapi bosen sama cake yang manis-manis kayak minTOT manisnya. TOT Cake! Beda sama cake lainnya karena rasanya asin gurih manis campur jadi satu, terbuat dari instant noodle yang pastinya kesukaan kamu kamu kamu semuanyaaa… Ditambah topping TOT Pedas, kornet spesial dan kejuuuu, Ulala!! Nggak kebayang kan?? Cusss langsung order via LINE@ @tot.aw (pake @) yaa buat ulang taon mu makin spesial dengan TOT Cake!! #TOTAW #TOTallyAWesome #TOTallyNyleneh
The cake is indeed made out of actual Indomie and it’s topped with sambal, corned beef and cheese. It’s sold by tot.aw (short for TOTally AWesome) a restaurant in Kelapa Gading and you can totally order it for your next birthday if you like for Rp 120,000.
Wohooo!!! Finally!! a new creation of @tot.aw, Indomie Cake!! Happy banget akhirnya bisa launch, impian gue pas ulang taon dikasih cake indomie akhirnya terwujud lewat @tot.aw. Jujur kadang bosen sama cake yang manis-manis, dulu kebanyang kalo cake nya dari indomie trus ditumpuk-tumpuk gitu pasti seruu!! Beneran sensasinya beda pas ngeliat indomie jadi cake. Apalagi ditambah topping TOT Pedes, kornet spesial, sama kejuu. Buat yang mau order, bisa langsung contact ke line @tot.aw (pake "@" ya) #TOTAW #TotallyAwesome #TOTallyNyleneh #vosFoyer
Reactions to this new Indomie creation on the internet were definitely mixed:

As far as we can tell, this is the first birthday cake anybody has made out of actual Indomie, but we did find loads of really creative Indomie-themed cakes online.
Check out the "Indomie birthday cake" Usman Dantata Jnr gave to his wife http://dlvr.it/MzHxlS
Actually, we did find one other birthday cake made out of Indomie online…
So no matter what you think of tot.aw’s new creation, you have to respect the time and effort they put into making it.
So what’s your verdict on the Indomie cake – yum or yuck? Let us know in the comments!
