Do not let them eat cake!

It is an old story - Queen Marie Antoinette was once told that peasants didn't have any bread to eat and she allegedly replied: "Let them eat cake!"

And this is the very phrase my friend Arzu recalled while reading the news about 49-meter long cake baked in Ganja for the 49th birthday of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.

However, let me disagree with Arzu here - a proper phrase for this ceremony would be "Do not let them eat cake!"
