The colourful yellow and brown cartoon cake with a cherry on top is eye-catching if not mouth-watering.
It's just too bad hardly anyone ever sees it.

Grâce à un don de 500 000 $, la campagne de financement de l’Institut Argyle des relations humaines a connu son coup d’envoi aujourd’hui. L’objectif de la campagne est d’amasser un million de dollars en dons.
Victor Bertrand Sr., président fondateur de MEGA Brands, le fabricant de la marque de renom Mega Blocks, et son épouse Rita ont contribué à la campagne avec un don personnel. Mme Carmela Mindel, présidente de l’Institut Argyle, a tenu à exprimer sa gratitude envers M. et Mme Bertrand, d’autant plus qu’il s’agit de la deuxième contribution d’importance du couple au cours des quatre dernières années.M. Bertrand, un membre intronisé au Temple de la renommée des jouets, a déclaré que son don reflète son dévouement à l’industrie du jouet, alors qu’il a toujours mis l’accent sur la création de moments agréables et éducatifs pour les enfants et leurs parents.

Three American Tech Giants That Could Have Been Canadian (But Our Laws Made it Impossible) - Techvibes.com
In interviews promoting his appearance on Iron Chef this past spring, Canadian chef Chuck Hughes was quick to emphasize that he wasn't necessarily appearing on the Food Network juggernaut to represent his homeland so much as his hometown: Hughes is, after all, a fierce Montrealer. But now that Hughes is poised to make his triumphant return to Kitchen Stadium as a contestant on The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, he is showing a bit more national pride.
"I don't know how much emphasis they'll put on the fact that I'm a Canadian chef - I'm not sure if that's going to be the focus for me," Hughes says over the phone.
He waited until questioned at a later press conference to confirm the long-touted Notre Dame St. E. revitalization project has again been placed indefinitely on the back burner.
Any mention of Notre Dame was entirely omitted from the city’s “global vision” for east- end development through to 2017, which Tremblay presented during a 48-minute luncheon speech Monday to an east-end business group.

Coronation Street Plays Catch Up as CBC Inks New Digital Deal | Mediacaster Magazine - Broadband & Content
Canadian viewers are watching shows that are about nine months behind the UK air schedule, currently viewing the aftermath of Corrie Street's dramatic tram crash storyline, marking the 50th anniversary of the world's longest running soap (celebrated in the UK last year).
The show currently airs twice every weekday in Canada; the new transmission schedule will eventually allow Canadian viewers to catch-up with the UK.
ITV Studios Global Entertainment, ITV's international distribution business, extended its long-running relationship with the CBC through the new multi year deal that includes digital catch-up rights. The show will be available for the first time in Canada multi-media platforms such as iTunes as well as CBC's own online video-on-demand service.
