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.
