Eating Cake Makes People Happy


Cake can make you happy by triggering the release of pleasure-inducing chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine and serotonin. Additionally, the taste, aroma, and appearance of cake can also stimulate positive memories and emotions, which can contribute to feelings of happiness!

  • 🔵 How happy they feel when they've been given a slice
