Trades Descriptions Act

Recently, a baker has been stopped from baking cute little tarts with marzipan piggy snouts on the top, called Pigtarts, because there is no pig in them.... Similarly, Robin tarts, because there are no robins in them.

This, of course, brings to mind other foodstuffs misleadingly labelled - Shepherd's Pie, Walls icecream, Fairy Cakes.

Which leads me on to wonder why my dentist hasn't set up a lucrative sideline selling genuine Rock Cakes... what a lot of business he could generate. In exchange for free dental treatment, I might suggest it to him...
