Another day, another Instagram hashtag movement. The latest one, however, packs a punch, considering it's decorated with icing and sprinkles. #CakeWithCashmerette is an Instagram movement started by British sewing blogger Jenny Rushmore (aka Cashmerette) who publicly shared her plans to make a swimsuit only to be met with an Internet troll telling her to "eat less cake." Now, with over 300 participants taking to the #cakewithcashmerette hashtag, Rushmore is showing her fat shaming commenter just how fabulous it can be to be a curvy cake eater.
To join in and show the trolls where they can shove it, simply post a selfie whilst eating cake to Instagram with the hashtag #cakewithcashmerette. To celebrate this movement, you can also throw on any clothes or accessories decked out in cake prints to truly represent the #cakewithcashmerette movement.
