McDonald's is famous for its burgers and fries, but there's a "secret" menu item that has the fast-food joint making headlines this week. On Tuesday (February 2), a video shared on TikTok by user @kayrock93 revealed—to the astonishment of many McDonald's fans—that McDonald's actually sells birthday cakes, too.

“Since no one believes McDonald’s sells cakes,” the caption on the video reads. The short video then shows a birthday cake being ordered at McDonald's and shown off afterward. The cake depicts a photo of McDonald's mascot Ronald McDonald. You can watch the whole thing here.

The TikTok has been viewed over 4 million times. Though many people in the comments still don't believe that McDonald's sells cakes, the chain's website holds an explanation. The site states that McDonald's does offer cakes for one specific occasion—kids' birthday parties.

A few TikTok users claiming to be McDonald's employees expanded on this in the comments, as well. According to the employees, some McDonald's locations keep cakes in the freezers in order to serve them at children's birthday parties held at the restaurant. At some McDonald's locations, employees got to take one of the cakes out on their birthday as well.

The availability of the secret birthday cakes likely varies based on location. If you're curious to see if your local McDonald's carries birthday cakes, your best bet is to give them a call and ask.
