Wide + Ides of March

Great Danish

[greyt dey-nish]
Great Dane + Danish pastry

1. A pastry so large that it appears correctly proportioned to a Great Dane dog rather than a human being.

Ex. I thought this class would teach me how to finally make pastry large enough to photograph next to my beloved Great Dane, Jorgen Borgensson III. Unfortunately, it turns out the people at ICE had run out of synonyms for "delicious" and had settled on "great" Danish pastry...again.
