Well if you're missing it so am I, cuz I don't see anything naughty about that cake either. icon_confused.gif

I wonder if it was translated from another language? It's amazing what gets screwed up when translating! Have you ever gone on engrish.com? Talk about hilarious!!
But, yeah, I don't see the "naughty" either. Not even slightly icon_smile.gif

Oh my goodness, that is SO offensive! I can't believe they even allow that sort of smut on the internet.

OK, I'm joking. Looks perfectly innocent to me! icon_wink.gif

Could it be that the cat is "naughty" because he's going to get those mice?? icon_evil.gif

Thanks, guys. I'm glad it's not just me. It's not that I really wanted to see something naughty, I was just worried that I missed the joke. (I'm not always good at catching sarcasm, either. icon_smile.gif ) I'll have to check out that "engrish" site, sugarjones!

That's what I was thinking, too. That's the only thing I could think of that would be "naughty."

I see nothing wrong, in fact I see nothing. It gives me "server error" and nothing shows up.

I think we're too used to the term 'naughty' referring to sexual here on CC with our "naughty cakes" category.

But I think Janjess has it right when she sees the more general usage of the word naughty depicted here in that the cat is "slightly naughty" in that it may be about to hunt down, capture, kill and eat those mice. Not exactly gleeful birthday subject matter.

It didn't surprise me that the descriptions on the Orchard Icing site were a bit weird - they make the WORST fondant ever.
