Publix is back with the tongue-in-cheek hurricane cakes. Twitter agrees: it is the most-Florida thing ever.
I mean, one cake even says “go away” on it.

But then again, the Tampa Bay Times reports that some customers aren’t really cool with the joke. Hurricane Dorian is now projected to hit Florida as a Category 4 storm, and it’s poised to be the strongest Central Florida has seen in years.
Publix put out similar hurricane-themed cakes in 2017 back when Irma hit.
