When Brookyln Nine-Nine actress Chelsea Peretti shared her particular method for eating cake on Twitter, there were passionate responses from people who were in favor of the way she ate cake, and those who opposed her...interesting method.
Turns out Peretti prefers having her cake only by eating around the frosting.
Her innocuous Instagram post in which she shared with followers her preference for eating cake immediately went viral with over 77,000 likes.
After seeing how equally riled up both camps for and against frosting eating reacted to her Instagram picture, she gave Twitter users a slice of her life.
"THE IMAGE I POSTED ON IG THAT HAS SET THE HOME-ON-FRIDAY INTERNET ABLAZE," she wrote.

Frosting lovers were appalled, while those who shared in the comedian's distaste for frosting cheered her on.

How there is a demographic adamantly against frosting is a marvel.
@chelseaperetti Me too. The frosting is totally gross. I'm only there for the cakey bits— Alice Evans (@Alice Evans)1537005002.0
Exceptions can be made for certain types of frosting, however.
@chelseaperetti I hate frosting too! Too rich too sweet, except maybe cream cheese frosting and only in small doses— Padma Lakshmi (@Padma Lakshmi)1537049258.0
The pro-frosting camp was absolutely stunned.
@ashleyn1cole @chelseaperetti This makes my heart hurt. Or maybe it's my love of frosting.— Vilhelm VonHeathenseed (@Vilhelm VonHeathenseed)1537024343.0

@chelseaperetti i eat it the reverse way, so please feel free to give me all your frosting, thank you.— EricaJoy (@EricaJoy)1537001258.0
Some shared in Peretti's practice of ditching the frosting, but not for the same reason.
@JenKirkman @chelseaperetti I prefer to eat cake without a lot of frosting. Then, later, I eat a container of frosting with a spoon.— Jordan Reiter (@Jordan Reiter)1537026301.0
@chelseaperetti I do the same thing but I eat the frosting last— SpongeHog SquareDay (@SpongeHog SquareDay)1536987569.0

At the end of the day, it's our preferences that makes us all unique, no matter how you slice it.
@chelseaperetti I like my way too 😍😘 https://t.co/3mV8qIGcMZ— Donna May 🇨🇦 (@Donna May 🇨🇦)1537112138.0
