Parshas Vayechi


 Yaakov's casket in Goren Atad.

This is based on the following Rashi from the Medrash

Our rabbis explained that the place Goren Atad was named for an event. Every king of Canaan and the princes of Yishmaal came for war and when they saw the crown of Joseph hanging on the casket of Yaakov, they all stood and hung their crowns. The casket was surround with crowns like a threshing floor that is surround with thorns:

רש"י על בראשית פרק נ פסוק י 
ור"ד (סוטה יג) על שם המאורע שבאו כל מלכי כנען ונשיאי ישמעאל למלחמה וכיון שראו כתרו של יוסף תלוי בארונו של יעקב עמדו כולן ותלו בו כתריהם והקיפוהו כתרים כגורן המוקף סייג של קוצים:

Bottom - chocolate pudding frozen with crushed graham crackers on top.
Cake - baked in a loaf pan. Frosted with chocolate mixed with white to give it wood like grain.
