UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — A Donald Trump cake bust made a surprise appearance outside of Trump Tower in midtown Tuesday evening.

The sweet bust of the GOP candidate was delivered to the Fifth Avenue building as a "victory cake" for Trump made with chocolate cake and frosting.

It was brought to Trump Tower for photographs and whisked away by several security guards within 20 minutes. But a crowd of supporters and photographers were able to grab a picture of it, where people were heard saying, "It's going to taste like victory."

After the bizarre dessert was spotted on Fifth Avenue, #TrumpCake began trending on Twitter and inspired many memes. Some commented on the cake detail, saying it looked a bit "sad" and compared it to gollum from "Lord of the Rings." The Trump Cake head was photoshopped into multiple scenarios.

It was not immediately clear who sent the dessert to the building.

Trump has not remarked on social media about the cake.
