SAN ANTONIO – District 4 Councilman Rey Saldaña went from hero to zero in just a matter of seconds.
On Tuesday, the San Antonio councilman shared a hilarious video on his social media pages that shows the disappointing moment when he dropped a homemade carrot cake near the front steps of his home.
“So my mom makes this amazing carrot cake … and I’m set to walk into the office a hero. Then this (happens). ¡Que Lastima!” Saldaña said in his Facebook post.
In the video, Saldaña is seen walking out of his home holding the handle of a container when the carrot cake falls out icing first.

“Tragedy … What a tragedy,” Saldaña is heard saying in the video.
Saldaña then flips the cake back onto the platter and based on comments, we now know his evil plan.
A Facebook follower told Saldaña in the comments section, “I see you deep in thought … 'it’s still good…right?'”
He responded, “I wonder if anyone would notice?”
While many were telling Saldaña that the 10-second rule applies in the disaster, Saldaña said the cake was “supposed to be a surprise too (and) I was on top of the world until the splat.”
We feel your pain, councilman. We feel your pain.
