Yes, ONLY available in Sri Lanka
from the irrepressible ‘Kapruka.com’.



Anybody who has followed this blog for any length of time will know that Sri Lanka’sKapruka‘ makes some incredible, world-beating cakes. I rave about them often enough.

But, THIS Father’s Day cake really does take the cake!

When I saw it, I cracked up LAUGHING. Only in Sri Lanka. Only by a Sri Lankan.

There is so many things wrong with this cake and so many different levels.

And to exacerbate things, ‘drinking’ is still has social and cultural stigmas and women, in Sri Lanka, are not permitted to buy alcoholic drinks at bars.

So, we now have a cake sporting 4 bottles of “Jack Daniel’s”.

First and foremost, what exactly are YOU trying to tell your Dad. That he is a raving dipsomaniac?

Let’s assume that he is, i.e., he is a raving dipsomaniac. What is he going to think? Do you think he is going to appreciate this cake. I doubt it. It will aggravate him, no end, on two fronts. He doesn’t want the bloody cake, he wants at least one bottle of Jack Daniel’s. So, that will be his first gripe. I don’t want this damn cake, you should have spent the money buying me a good bottle. Then, the second gripe. This really does look like somebody is taking the mickey out of you. Implying that you are a raving dipsomaniac.

Well, I do NOT have to worry. Nobody sends me cakes or makes me any. That I do not eat cake might be a small factor.

But, I am not sure how I will react if I got this cake.

Now, if it also came with 4 bottles of Jack Daniel’s, all could be forgiven. By the time you finished two of the bottles you wouldn’t even remember the cake.

Happy Father’s Day — especially IF you are a raving dipsomaniac. I can relate. Cheers.

Any regular reader of this blog will by now know about the seriously impressive cakes, available in Sri Lanka (and just in Sri Lanka), for any and all holidays, irrespective of whether they are actually celebrated in Sri Lanka or NOT, by enterprising and ever-expanding ‘Kapruka.com‘.

Just in the last few months you have seen the Christmas, Jan. 1 New Year, April 14 Sinhala New Year, Valentine’s Day & Thai Pongal.

Now, of course, it is Mother’s Day. Just feast your eyes and marvel. Yes, Sri Lankan’s are famous for their cake making. My adoptive mother was among the best.

In case you are wondering I am nothing but a customer when it comes to Kapruka. Though I give them huge amount of publicity I get nothing from them. That is OK. They have never asked me to do these posts. I do them for YOU.

Just in the last ten weeks, or so, I have done three posts on the seriously impressive cakes, available in Sri Lanka (and just in Sri Lanka), thanks to ‘Kapruka.com‘.

These cakes are for Valentine’s Day — and that makes me GRIN for multiple reasons. This is a totally new holiday to Sri Lanka. Growing up, we had never heard of it. C’est la vie. All to do with the HUGE, multi-million (I suspect) Sri Lankan diaspora in the West. They are hell bent on sharing their holidays with those back home. Nothing wrong. Makes a lot of people very happy and Karuka very rich.
