Since "younger women crushing on older men" isn't this trope, then what trope would it be? What name can we give it, huh? It'd be a shame to just cut off the "genderflipped examples" and leave them aside for X or Y reasons.

Mmmm... about examples, what about Chobbits manga/anime, the freind of Lead Male ?

I think this needs a new name....Just saying.

I'm inclined to agree. The current name is not only based on a relatively obscure term ("Christmas cake") but also only uses half of it.

"Cougar hunter", perhaps? A lot of people don't care for the term "cougar", but damn near everyone knows what it means.

I made that exact suggestion some months ago and was shot down. Fast. The Japanophiles love their Japanese-centric titles.

Truthfully, setting aside "cougar," I'd much prefer something simple like "Loves Older Women."

This trope desperately needs a new name.

Copypasta here:

A cake eater actually refers to Edina, MN, saying the people in it are so rich they can have their cake and eat it too. It could also refer to rich white suburban kids in general, too. And BTW- Mighty Ducks was filmed in Minnesota, so he's probably literally calling that kid a cake-eater from Edina.

So yes,new name.

Awful, stupid, nondescriptive name, that only a certain small fraction of users will understand. "Cougar Hunter" is great.
