Jailbird Cake?

Seems like a dish best served cold.

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s latest baking suggestion appears to be a cleverly veiled diss at domestic rival Martha Stewart‘s past as a prisoner.

Published on her website, goop, the dessert consists of chocolate wafers and whipped cream – and brings to mind 73-year-old Stewart’s 2004 stint behind bars (and then under house arrest) for insider trading.

Now that‘s having your cake and eating it too.

It’s also an apt response to the “Conscious Coupling” spread that appeared in Martha Stewart Living last month, a play on the announcement that Paltrow, 42, was "consciously uncoupling" from husband Chris Martin.

“The folks at goop know how to have some fun, too,” a source close to the goop creator tells PEOPLE. “If Martha served up the appetizer, the Jailbird Cake is just desserts.”

You know what they say: If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.
