Sheesh!

Oh, the irony.

Too bad, too -- that cake sounds really good.

That is histerical then. And also fitting from what I understand.

beagle said...

I guess this would be meant for a Jew in name only? LOL

k@lakly said...

She's got a wicked sense of humor....hmmm, like someone else I read...

Melissia said...

Either your mom isn't observant or she has a wicked sense of humor, which one is it? Or did she just not read the card?

niobe said...

Melissia & K@lakly: Well, my mom certainly isn't observant. And she can be quite funny. But I think the blame for this one falls squarely on the bakery.

Bon said...

you can send it to my house. :)

Aunt Becky said...

niobe, I needed that laugh. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

debbie said...

ha ha ha, that is hilarious!

Betty M said...

ho ho ! Bit like the Passover ham that was around last year!

Amelie said...

wow. Good thing you read the fine-print...

niobe said...

Sorry, Bon. All my co-workers left were a few crumbs.

And a good thing? I dunno, Amelie. As Leanne said, the cake looked pretty tasty.

Elizabeth said...

WHAT??? That is too good to be true! (If by "good" I mean "bad")

My Reality said...

Oh that made my day!

Smiling said...

Somehow that is classic to me.. as in the 'only in america' category of classic where shops put out hams for Jewish holidays and cakes like this!!!

Thanks for the chuckle!

Patti said...

Too funny....and kinda sad and scary. LOL

Artblog said...

In Europe that would just NOT be allowed at all. So misleading, I smell a lawsuit let alone coconut...

Cara said...

HA! Niobe - I don't know anyone else like you...able to elicit such hearty laughter in so few words.

Does blogeristics mimic real life??

Lisa b said...

what?? That is totally ridiculous!

Magpie said...

Oops.

Shades of last year's ham?

missedconceptions said...

Goyim (dramatic eye roll).

Monica H said...

Hilarious! Eat it anyway :-)

Julia said...

Now, it could be the time of night, of course, but it took me a bit to find the offending ingredient. And then it was a "DOH!" moment.

painted maypole said...

wow. and I'm guessing the makers were not meaning to be ironic

Hannah said...

I was going to offer to take it off your hands but Bon got in there first. ;)

Thanks for your note on my blog the other day. It was most helpful to know that the whole preschooler battle happened to you too, since I know how close you and Gray are now. It made me feel a lot better. To the point where I almost don't need a non-kosher passover cake.

Infertile Myrtle said...

That is great.

Anonymous said...

Um, I think that makes it an Easter cake, doesn't it?

Angela said...

Ha! I love it.

wheelsonthebus said...

Kathy McC said...

melissa said...
