I asked that question here also when i got my V540.

I thought it was a Big Mac.

Turns out it is an aluminum screw cap.

Happily i don't find a lot of those

For any non-Vanquish owner who might wonder what we are talking about it is the icon to the right of the ring.

"It's a trap!"

"There's always the bigger cake."

"Hello there, Cake Kenobi."

There must be some Star wars fans here, right?

Would have helped if ML had tilted the cap (oval bottom) so as to give a 3D image.

How 'bout:

“If only you knew the power of the Cake Side...”

"...fear leads to anger...anger leads to cake…cake leads to suff-er-ing.”

"The Cake is a pathway to many abilities that some consider to be, unhealthy"

"I've become fatter than any Jedi, even you"

"To cheat calories is a power only one has achieved but if we work together, I know we can discover the secret"

Have you heard the tragedy of Darth Cakey the wise?

What happened to him?

Not a tale the bakers will tell you. He was the GREATEST of all Dark Cakes, he could even stop the death of the cupcakes he loved.

Is it possible to learn this power?

Only those who know how to decorated the DARK CAKE can achieve this power...
