Let them eat the cake

There is a bakery in our house (corner of Paříkova and Pešlova streets). Actually... Is there an English word for bakery that only bakes sweet stuff, not bread? Never mind...

The thing is, they often display some very unique (and tasty) cakes and a few days ago they offered this one:

Linux cake!

Excited, I asked about the cake - why did they make it? Do they have some open-source customers who like sweet stuff? "Well," the nice lady (owner's daughter) told me, "I just told them to make some cute animal cakes for the kids". In other words, she had no idea about the significance of this exact penguin! Was the cook Linux guru? Or did he just search for "cute penguin" on the net?

I think this cake is great present for computer geeks. If you think so too, visit our bakery and tell the owner that you want the penguin cake. THIS EXACT PENGUIN CAKE! Of course, this assumes that you live in Prague, preferably somewhere in the vicinity of our house. Yes, our nine-story house is there, although Seznam.cz online map says there is nothing. They are a little behind.

What about candy shop, confectionery or patissery? For example Wikipedia - Confectionery.

I was quite suprised once to find kid's T-shirt (small one, like for age 2 or close to that) with this very same penguin in Tesco. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me and I never saw those again there.
