Cakeshop roadkill

I stumbled upon a double tragedy on the pavements of East Dulwich the other day.

First, outside the bakery, a suicidal synthetic cream horn. 

And then, just yards away, the broken form of a fallen Viennese Whirl.

I'm not saying the life of a Viennese Whirl is worth more than the life of a synthetic cream horn, but I found the second one particularly distressing. My photography skills have failed to clearly capture its haunting final moments, but in my defence, I was deeply shaken by what I'd seen.
