Row over Hitler cake as Italy debates new law on outlawing Fascist and Nazi propaganda

An Italian pastry maker landed himself in trouble after baking a cake decorated with an image of Adolf Hitler, as Italy considers introducing a new law that would outlaw the glorification of Nazism and Fascism.

Several passersby complained after seeing the cake displayed in the window of the patisserie in the town of Maratea in the southern region of Basilicata.

The €30 cake bore a striking likeness of the Fuhrer, complete with toothbrush moustache and Nazi insignia.

    You should see the celebrations, all around the world, every April 20 – Hitler’s birthday.

    My local German Club is full to the brim with beer-swilling fascists.

    To each his own, I guess, and as long as the baker didn’t refuse to bake a wedding cake for a couple of fags, then all is good!

    As someone here said, in the future, everyone will be Hitler for 15 minutes.

    Remember what Life was like before cakes and baking became weaponized?

    The Germans of the day referred to our beloved Fuhrers moustache as a “snot catcher”.
    …….not a tooth brush.

    Sorry….gotta run it’s time for my dogs(Corgi) goose stepping lesson.
