"Is it safe to eat?" the brothers asked. "Of course, it is legit this time!" she replied. The brothers eventually concluded that she wasn't trying to poison them.
Interacting with children could be fun. You can expect them to be angelic but they do leave us stunned with their savage ways. It is not surprising that most six-year-olds now are much more skilled than we were (or presently are). If there was an empirical study being conducted to add more to the Flynn effect (long-sustained increase in intelligence test scores), this instance of two Australian brothers getting ruthlessly destroyed by a six-year-old in a bake-off would be a good contribution.
In a series of TikTok posts under the username @alwaystaketwo, these twin adult brothers—who are into music—often post their hilarious interactions with their neighbor Harper who mostly communicates with them from behind a backyard fence. A few of their videos have racked up about 38 million views and tell the tale of the epic bake-off she challenged them to.
In one of the clips, Harper slips them two containers of lemon cake that she made with lemons from her lemon tree. One of the brothers says, "This is the best moment ever" to which Harper sassily replies, "Of course it is!"
"Is it safe to eat?" the brothers ask her. "Of course, it is legit this time," she responds. The brothers eventually conclude that she isn't trying to poison them. "Harper, this is probably the best thing you've ever, ever brought over the fence," they tell her. Harper then forces them to promise to bring her their own cake the next week. She jokes, "I take it serious, mate."
The prize money was then negotiated by Harper. She started with a $50 pitch. She threatened to quit after the brothers offered her $20. They increased the prize to $100, and she accepted.
Later, the twins submitted their bake-off cake which she demanded should be served to her in the shape of a star. When asked if she liked their cheesecake, she says that it's sort of good. The brothers claim that Harper is the hardest person to impress.
Harper was confident she'd win because her cake included toppings, ice cream, and homegrown lemons. Furthermore, she was convinced that her grandmother's recipe was simply superior. "Can tell you didn't use homegrown lemons. You don't even have a lemon tree," Harper says at one point, throwing shade at them. Andrea, Brandon's wife, presided over the final round. It was clear that Harper was the winner, bagging the $100 prize.
Harper clearly is a savage baker and the competition didn't seem too tough. People in the comments couldn't agree more. "'It's not me you gotta impress, it's your wife,' Harpers savage," wrote @kayleighg001.
"'It's lemon zest' Harper: I hate that" quoted @j2dafish. "How is a child this funny??? I do not understand," commented @cakerach. "She won hands down. She had toppings AND ice cream!" said @whiterosie48. "
This little girl can't be 5. she's HILARIOUS! Like she's been here before and is over it," added @t_beonit. "By the time she’s 18 she’ll be rich because she wins all the bets haha," joked @treyyyyyyyyyyy08. This girl seems to be good at baking and roasting. Hope the brothers can get over it.
