It's that time of the year for the ANC to celebrate it's birthday and all eyes are on the cake.
Sadly it's something that's gone from batter to worse most years, but this year there appears to have been a change of baking fortunes and a steady improvement.
Last year the party got some help from the opposition when Nadine Taylor from Taylor Treats in the Eastern Cape boasted that she was able to put aside her allegiances to the Democratic Alliance (of which she is a member) and bake the ANC's cake.
Cake cutting ceremonies took place across the country on January 8 and there appeared to be no spelling errors or baking disasters in sight, unlike last year.

This year the cakes look better, but this doesn't stop social media savages.
107 years and this is the best cake you can get, my neighbor makes better cakes for 1 yrs old birth day parties than this. Someone needs to be arrested in the ANC top six for approving this cake. pic.twitter.com/0pMI0QLkRl— Lwazi (@LwaziMBK) January 8, 2019
