Ladybird Cake

Traditional and Celebration it says. Can anyone enlighten me as to which traditional celebration involves fashioning an abomination like this? I’m pretty sure my violent objection to this…cake is not simply due to my dislike of dessicated coconut (that’s what that…red stuff is) and entirely linked to the cold dead chocolate button eyes. And the rest of it.

  1. The red dye and food colouring cochineal is made from dried insects. Did it provide some subconscious inspiration for the inventor of this e-numbers-rich cake?
