Scum top cake?

IKEA IS PECULIAR; IT HAS DAFT NAMES FOR EVERYTHING.

[Pic of weirdly named Ikea cake - skumtopp]For example I spotted a lovely and potentially delicious cake in my local Ikea — unfortunately, it was called Sotsak Skumtopp.

Good grief!  Things are certainly getting worse when cakes called skumtopp are best sellers!

 

Speacil Baby

[Picture of the cake in Newlands Bakery window]I WAS AMAZED TO SEE A CAKE PROUDLY DISPLAYED IN THE SHOP WINDOW OF A NEWLANDS BAKERY.

Being positioned so prominently, it is clear that the baker is proud of the skill and craftsmanship that went into the making of this celebratory cake — and perhaps with it, the hopes of attracting future commissions.

What is this cake? Well, a cursory inspection revealed a pinkness to the icing — suggesting the cake was for a girl or about a girly event.  There is a miniature baby in a nappy decorating the top of the cake, and the ABC nursery blocks shown on the side.

It is just possible that the cake is to celebrate the birth of a baby girl. I have personally never heard of this sort of thing, but — it is a definite possibility.  I suppose if it were a first birthday, it would say so.

Maybe it is for a special day — perhaps the day a baby is brought home from the maternity hospital or something.  Being pink it is certainly not for a circumcision!

If it is for an unspecified  “special day”, then the baker should be shot for being unable to spell the principal word — or is it a case of “well, that is exactly what the client wrote on the note”?

Either way, things are getting worse.

Bad Birthday Cake

A SPECIALLY MADE BIRTHDAY CAKE.

What a good idea — and it is all the rage these days too.  Any four-year-old would be delighted to have a cake specially made just for them!

However, look at the subject matter — is “Grand Theft Auto” really suitable for a 4 year old? It has an “R” rating apart from anything else. (Click on Picture to enlarge)

What have the parents been allowing?  What were they thinking? Oooh, things are getting worse!
