quicko: the coles cake

This is an absolute staple of Australian society. When there's a goodbye party at work, there's a Coles cake. When there's a post-surf barbeque, there's a Coles cake. When there's a Bible study birthday, there's a Coles cake. Coles cakes are different from, say, Kroger cakes. They're not nearly as big for starters (guess that was a given, really), and they're circular. They're not bundt cakes, though; they're chocolate. Very solid chocolate, actually. They're not bad for their price and capability to feed a small crowd in very short order (plus, they're always immediately available), but they're not exactly scrumptious. They do the job, though, and I've even been known to purchase one on occasion.
