While a lot of his followers saw the funny side to the photo, others criticised Chris and Elsa for their actions.
One person said: "Why people smash their kids face in the cake is above my understanding but whatever."
Another said: "Not funny to do that let alone her own mom. A little girl lost an eye to that same "grace" because in her cake there was a bamboo stick holding her. They don't promote such jokes."
A third wrote: "I don't find this funny. It's almost violent.. hit, push, dirt, put down..."
Others defended the couple, seeing it as a clear joke, saying: "Great way to eat cake! I need to give it a try."
Another said: "It's one of the simple pleasures of motherhood!!"
While a third added: "Happy, Happy Birthday!! Awesome family!!! It was obviously very much enjoyed!"
