A viral TikTok video of a guest accidentally cutting a wedding cake before the bride and groom has left viewers divided.

In a 17-second clip with over 24.5 million views, the bride’s unaware best friend was seen walking over to the cake and helping herself.

The video was shared by the wedding guest, and showed her cutting into the top tier of her friend’s wedding cake with a knife, licking some of the white icing off her finger as she took a slice.

According to the text overlay for the video, she ignored the brownie table that was left out for guests, and thought the bride and groom already served the cake to everyone else.
