Ghosts with the Most, Continued

Tuesday, October 28, 2008



This is:

A) the fabled Ghost Genie of Graceland, said to occupy the King's old rhinestone jumpsuits and known to terrorize tourists with his swirly bouffant 'do and tiny T-Rex arms

B) the Michelin Man after an unfortunate smelting accident

C) cloud porn (if you don't tell your kids, who will?)





Hey, that's cheating - the ghost is made of plastic! Thank goodness for the airbrushing, tri-colored tree spikes, and two disapproving pumpkins (see below); or else this wouldn't be a Wreck at all.


Pumpkin #1: "Hey, what's with the ghost's purple nose?"
Pumpkin #2: "I dunno - maybe he got a boo-boo. Get it? 'Boo-boo'? Ahahahha!"
Pumpkin #1: "Dude. You are so annoying."
Pumpkin #2: "Or maybe he inherited it from his transparents? Huh?"
Pumpkin #1: "Forget I said anything. Really."
Pumpkin #2: "Oh, wait, I know! He had too many spirits last night! Get it? 'Spirits'?"
Pumpkin #1: "Somebody cut the cake already. I can't take it anymore."


Thanks to Leanna P. and Shawn A.!

But but...you can't cut that cake...you pull it apart! ;) But that airbrush job is boo-tiful! *snort*

Jerri said...

Cut the cake? It's a CCC - there's nothing to cut. ;-P

writtenwyrdd said...

As usual, your commentary is the best part of the wrecktastic offering.

Liz said...

The first looks like a distant cousin to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Flartus said...

Ah, what a way to start the day...with BOOffant-ed porny ghosts being heckled by emotionally wrecked pumpkins.

This place rocks. And rolls.

KateT said...

What is up with all the ghost arms? Ghosts didn't have arms when I was a kid. What would they do with them? Obviously not pick stuff up.

Jane said...

The 2 cupcakes sitting at the top really just... I don't know. They make me extra sad for some reason.

Ophelia said...

Awww, man, that top ghost is leaking T_T

Ghost #1's fatal flaw: he is a CCC.

And what do you do with those free-floating butter-cream puffs? Lick them off the plastic serving board?

I rest my case: CCCs are evil AND unsanitary. Thank goodness we no longer live in the age of cholera.

asillylittlegirl said...

Just how much are people being charged for these wrecks?! I have a friend that would have been licking the icing off the paper in the first pic.

FreedomFirst said...

Oh, I love this post! Your dialogue is great. Personally, I vote for the Michelin Man after an accident on #1.

Kathie said...

That first ghost is so sportin' a porn 'stache! The disapproving have to be my favorite though. :)

The mama said...

Gah! That first one is horrible. Truly horrible.

echidna girl said...

That first one looks alarmingly like a flattened Maltipoo puppy just after the road accident. Sorry for that visual.

Julie said...

All right children.... Who stuffed the Pillsbury Dough Boy in the microwave and nuked him like a marshmallow?

BadcakesmakemeSAD said...

Let's not forget the ghost poop/fart being left behind- seriously, what are these people thinking?

Liz said...

The cloud looks like he's flippin me off!

Jamie said...

Now I have some jokes for my kids when they come home today- come for the wrecks, stay for the jokes!

Becky said...

As soon as I saw that first one I thought of the Michelin man in a terrible accident...glad we were on the same page!!

rrr said...

Ooohh nnoooo!

It's a dreaded cup-cake cake!

Scaaarryy!

Annimal said...

i'm thinking the first ghost might have been cute without the big blobby eyes and mouth....second thought, naw.......

What's Her Face said...

I'm going to go with A) for the first one because I have an irrational fear of tiny T-Rex arms.

Becky said...

Those pumpkins look like they are possessed! Too scary for me to eat...

This was a great way to start my day! I love your commentary!

yousuckatcraigslist said...

I'm going into a diabetic coma just looking at CCC #1.

Alexis said...

This first one looks like my monkey cupcake cake, the decorator thought why waste cupcakes for the tail a bunch of frosting will do! except when you remove the cupcakes it looks like the ghost had a little accident. Classic :)

jennifer H said...

I thought the first one looked like a distorted and VERY pale purple pieman from strawberry shortcake ...complete with the bakers hat! humm wonder if they would do it in purple for me LOL....

Elena said...

I really like the green pepper effect on the last one.

JAMIE'S CREW said...

my immediate first thought was "Wow! Albino grapes"

Anonymous said...

I've yet to figure out where the baker for CCC #1 got his/her idea for what a ghost looks like. That does indeed look like either the Stay-puf dude, or Michelin Man after a bad night partying.

Blythe said...

Bwwhahahahaa thank you for my morning giggle. That first one looks like ghost poop though lol.

Have a good day and Keep on Wreckin'!

Alex H. said...

I actually like the swirly frosting on #1, it just seems so thick for cupcakes... Maybe it would be better on, y'know, an actual cloud cake.

LuLu said...

LOL to cloud porn!

the willards said...

Good Lord that first one is just terrible.... it's frightening but not in a scary halloween sort of way! ::shudder::

ksaldria said...

For some reason the first wreck reminded me of that animated DNA strand from Jurassic Park.

Valarie said...

Decorator #1: "That's a cute little ghost!"

Decorator #2: "Thanks. It took a bit, but I think it works."

Decorator #1: "But the order is for a dozen, I only count 10."

Decorator #2: "Aw crap, I'll just stick them on top of his head since I'm out of room."

Kat said...

Totally the Michelin man....in some form or another. Love it!

Juliet said...

That first cake - all I saw was Groucho Marx, minus the cigar and glasses.

Psychologists should adapt the Rorsharch (sp?)ink blot tests to nebulous cake creations. What you see in the cake can tell loads about your personality. Do you see Groucho? The Michelin Man? Cloud Porn? The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man? How about it, psychology?

Melinda said...

The first one does not even look like a ghost-the only thing that makes it a ghost is that it is white! Not the arms, not the EARS!
I will say that the frosting does look pretty yummy though.

adam harmon said...

and it wouldn't be smelting with the michelin man it would be valucanising!

usda said...

the first one kinda looks like the ghost of one of the super mario bros, kinda

Kathleen said...

The first ghost has a Groucho Marx mustache.

redraven said...

I don't know..that first one looks like a cloud with prunes on it, to me!

Great site - you and all the commenters make me laugh every day. Wreck on!

SeaShore said...

What is with all of these sucky ghost cakes? Seriously, it doesn't get any easier than a ghost!

MaryO said...

OMG !!!!!!

The first wreck is a combo of all three of your choices.

I don't get the brown colored geyser of... what is that ?? Multicolored bats? Or? This has more of a sci-fi feel to it.

Sad. Even for Hallowe'en, very sad. And bad. Bad. Bad. Bad.

kerry said...

that first one...wow. the t-rex arms, especially. just...wow.

Spangled said...

What's with the brown streak in the sky of cake #1? Is it raining poo?

Snigger Fam said...

LOL at the pumpkin dialogue. You should write a book.

When are you going to get a snappy "Cake Wrecks" logo to put up top?

CaliGirl9 said...

I thought the first one was a visual model of small intestines that wasn't yet airbrushed to the perfect shade of peach, pink and red. Intestines could smile!

Marian Murdoch said...

It's a shmooo!!! (10 points to whomever gets THAT reference!)

Anonymous said...

more random poo on the loose...now in white! egads!

harmzie said...

Man, that looks like the leavings of a ghost with some serious digestive issues.

Emily said...

Haha! The first one looks like it's covered in shaving cream!

Denise said...

That tail really does look like a ghost fart, doesn't it?
Those tiny arms are beyond pathetic.
Thanks for my afternoon laugh.

Persnickety Ticker said...

Love the Ghost jokes!!! Had me giggling for a good 10 minutes!

(It doesn't take much. I'm simple like that. Although after looking at these, I am starting to crave some surgary goodness...)

Anonymous said...

The first one looks like the Ghost of Mr. Hankie!

Mad Izatie said...

I love this post. Awesome dialogue between the pumpkins.

Katie said...

I'm suprised you didn't comment on the fact that the first one is a cupcake-cake!

Cathy said...

If you look at the first one long, it kinda resembles a fluffy Groucho Marx with a baker's hat...minus the glasses. Hmmm....
Love your blog!

Skiriki said...

I'm voting for C) regarding the first cake.

Cloud pr0n for the win!

Jenn said...

The dialogue is great LOL... "Forget I said anything. Really."

This blog keeps me in tears lol

Allison said...

despite how incredibly awful the first CC ghost is the icing looks delicious!

MamaT said...

Okay, someone help me out. Cloud Porn??? I have looked and looked and just can't see it.

Anonymous said...

"Cloud porn." ROFLCOPTER OF WIN!

amkelly said...

omg - LOVE the dialogue between the pumpkins.
Too good. ^_^

The Hagans said...

So, I was looking up cupcake recipes for my daughter and I came across this page. I thought you may find some humor in the pumpkin cupcakes she makes.

Love your site

Janus said...

I think that first one was the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man after the Ghostbusters took care of it.

Indian Summer said...

My 4 year old's comment about the first one (the gost): "Look! The ghost is pooping!!"

Cupcakes Lady said...

LOL .... cloud porn! Magic. ;0 xx
