Jaffa is the tiger that doesn't roar. It can't because let's face it, Jaffa isn't a tiger, it is a cake with the cool orange and chocolate brown stripes of a tiger. Surely it deserves a name like any other cake. Besides, wouldn't you agree there is something gratifying when you take a moment to name the cake you have baked, get acquainted with it before greedily gobbling it up?
