  • Trust me guys i was standing there when the boy was making the video and still those boys and girls took the cake from the shop, even after watching the cockroach and making the video. So i dont understand this double standard people.

  • Dang. I liked layers. I dont know if i will have it in me to order them now even if they clear the shop.
