A croissant is layered, just like a roll of toilet paper

You are

the universe.

I have the shape of a doughnut.

Scientists theorize that the universe is doughnut-shaped (sort of).

I have the texture of a croissant.

Croissant in French means "increasing" or "growing", and the universe is believed to be expanding.

I have the appearance of a wedding cake

layered and festooned with decorations.

You use me everyday.

Every time I breath or eat or move I'm using the universe.

  • $\begingroup$ @nr_aus I believe this is a regional spelling difference so while I wouldn't have spelt it this way I assume this is the correct spelling where that user is (or even if not it is still a correct spelling in some places). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I don't see how a tire has the appearance of a wedding cake. A wedding cake is usually light in color and dainty, whereas a tire is black and rough, $\endgroup$ Oct 16, 2020 at 22:02
  • $\begingroup$ I have seen tires of different colors and wedding cakes in variety of dark colors. $\endgroup$ Oct 17, 2020 at 0:02

You are

Red blood cells

I have the shape of a doughnut.

Red blood cells are shaped like a donut.

I have the texture of a croissant.

Red blood cells are flexible, like a croissant, in order to penetrate the smallest blood vessels.

I have the appearance of a wedding cake

Often red blood cells are stacked giving the appearance of a wedding cake.

You use me everyday.

Every living human being use their own red blood cells all the time.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice, but I don't see how one can call something like a croissant only because it's soft. $\endgroup$ Oct 16, 2020 at 22:04
  • $\begingroup$ Well, texture means "the feel, appearance, or consistency (of something)", and softness is closer to that definition than layered ;-) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Well, then does that mean that red blood cells have the texture of donuts and cakes as well? $\endgroup$ Oct 17, 2020 at 12:16
