Gwyneth Paltrow has fired back at Martha Stewart's "conscious uncoupling" pie spread, with a shade-throwing dessert of her own. In the sweet feud between the two domestic powerhouses, the oven appears to be the mightiest weapon. Goop's "Jailbird Cake" recipe features chocolate wafers that poke out along the side of whipped cream, making the treat look like a prison cell. Was "Jailbird Cake" a thing before Gwyneth's introduction? No. Will Martha be serving it at her Thanksgiving table? Most definitely not.
