What's Better Than a Hockey Wreck?

Thursday, October 9, 2008


That's right: a FREE hockey Wreck.



Now, I know nothing about hockey. I would not even know this cake was hockey-related if the word 'hockey' wasn't on there. So I asked my hubby John, and he was only too happy to explain the whole game for me. And you know what? It's actually kind of interesting! So for the benefit of you other non-sports types, here's a quick rundown:

See, apparently they play this sport on ice - but they have to make sure the ice is really thick, or else their cleats will scuff it all up. The players wear lots of padding and helmets, and carry little butterfly nets on sticks with which to hit the ball around. The object of the game is to score a triple Hail Mary - which is just another name for a running slam dunk - and consists of knocking three other players down while simultaneously dunking the ball through one of the red rings. Players known as running backs try to kick the ball, but the other team's catchers use their heads and butterfly nets to deflect the ball away from their side's field goal. Any running backs who are able to push the other team's running backs out of the big circle in the middle get what's called a free throw, in which they're allowed to chuck the ball at the head of their least favorite player. If they miss, their team only scores a half-down, but if the ball hits the other player, they score a hole-in-one.

There was also some stuff about yard lines, birdies, and triple-axles, but I kind of zoned out at that point. Still, I think I just may have to check out a hockey game some day; John tells me every time the pitcher serves a kill-shot, the mascot serves hot chocolate. How cool is that?!?

I think the best part about this cake is that it says "AHS Field Hockey" and "Great Season." While, that's a great sentiment for the field hockey team, this is an ice hockey rink. Field Hockey is played on a grass field and has an arc at either end of the field-- no ice or red circles.

Stellar.

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Wow, Jen. Your ability to grasp the complexities of hockey is almost as astonishing as that cake!!

Kansas girl said...

Calvinball!

Matt said...

I think the best part about this wreck is that the cake clearly says "field hockey" but they designed and ice hockey rink. Field hockey is played on what looks a lot like a soccer field. Fail.

Linnea said...

does that say "field hockey"? if it does, it's even funnier - the totally wrong kind of hockey!

Crochet by Momma J said...

I just love how there's no charge - too funny!

Jessie said...

OK, someone explain why this is a Wreck, please...

pyrajane said...

Waitaminute...does that say Field Hockey??? Are they playing on blue grass?

Amy said...

So great!! I love your site! I just wish I had found it sooner. My baby shower cake was NEON pink and bright purple (my friend who ordered it just said "pink" thinking that they would do a nice baby pink since it was obviously a shower cake) and it read [quote]"Congratulations" Mommy-to-Be [end quote](yes, it had quotation marks!). Plus, the neon pink baby booties (slippers, not real booties!) were a hoot too! If I had only known....I would have taken a better picture of it!

Cari said...

Isn't the biggest wreck of all that it says "FIELD Hockey" on the cake though it's clearly an ice rink?

Eddie said...

It looks like it say AHS Field Hockey... which would make this even more of a wreck. At first I thought, "That's weird, why would it be called AHS Field? Hockey is played in a rink." Then it dawned on me - this cake may have been intended for a field hockey team. Yikes!

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Ah, that makes sense now! Could you explain American Football to me next?

Mary said...

Does that say "AHS Field Hockey"? If so that's even more horrific.

Nancy said...

Here in NY Field Hockey is a game played by girls... on a field. I could see them not charging for a Field Hockey cake that shows an ice rink, when it should have a field on it!

Sparty_Cyclone said...

Since this is Field Hockey and not Ice Hockey, it's played in a field and not on ice. Otherwise, your definition was spot on.

Kredal said...

The best part about this, and probably why it's free... it's for a field hockey team, which as the name implies, is not played on ice at all, but on a... well, a field. The cake should have been green! (and the markings on the ground are all different, too, but... well, there's only so much you can expect from a free cake!

Alison said...

I suspect that part of the reason it was free is because it looks like it's supposed to be a field hockey cake, not ice hockey, unless they have a lot of blue fields in that area!

Jessica Rabbit said...

It seems more like a water ballet arena or a dolphin training pool to me... "Jump through the hoops, Flipper! There's a good porpoise!"

Hatshepsut Saeed said...

That says FIELD hockey, which is played, well, in a field. On grass. Apparently the decorator didn't get the memo that there is more than one sort of hockey and missed the context clue of "Field". Next up: bowling on a shuffle board deck.

bentomama said...

It says field hockey on it too....which is not played on ice. So unless they have been spray painting their field blue there's yet another problem with this disaster lol

Chris said...

Field hockey or ice hockey? I ask because I see the word "field" on the cake, yet the blue looks like it is supposed to be ice. Confusing! Definitely a wreck! ;)

Lefty said...

Absolutely amazing! This "hockey" of which you speak is so dynamic. I might have to take a closer look as well.

Kanka said...

I think I know why that particular cake was no charge. Ice hockey is played on ice.

But the "AHS FIELD Hockey" team probably played field hockey on a field... of grass (which normally isn't blue).

micala said...

I *think* this one is a cake for field hockey though... so no ice on that. I think the middle circle there says "AHS|FIELD" with the hockey part underneath. My daughter's on the high school field hockey team.. I've seen a lot of field hockey games.

It's a disaster any way you look at it.

Craig said...

I think all the stuff about ice may not be so applicable. It looks to me that the cake was supposed to celebrate a "great season" for "AHS Field Hockey" but the words were broken up even more strangely than normal. So rather than ice and triple Hail Marys, it probably involved grass and girls in long socks. (Of course, this would make the blue cake inexplicable, so...)

writtenwyrdd said...

Wow. And I thought I almost had a grasp on hockey rules. The thing that cracks me up the most is the "no charge" post it note. I should hope they didn't charge for a field hocky field that's an ice hockey arena.

Sue said...

Thank you so much for the explanation of hockey! I'd been wondering about how it's played.

Field hockey=green grass not blue ice. Even this native Floridian knows THAT!

Susan said...

After the comments, aren't you glad you weren't assigned this cake?

Carol said...

If my friend Cece was a cake decorator, and she was asked to decorate a sports cake, this is exactly what that cake would look like. She is sportsually impaired. I'm guessing so was this particular decorator.

Good thing they didn't have to make one for horse racing. Can you just imagine how long it would take them to stuff those horses in those little race cars?

Bwahahaha!

Rambler said...

Luckily the sarcasm of your misplaced sports descriptions was not lost on your readers. I'm glad they all explained the difference between field and ice hockey. Anyway, at least this cake was appropriately listed under "Misc Bakery". Good times.

Oh and Kansas girl... I'm up for Calvinball.

Anonymous said...

It's obviously field hockey played on blue Astroturf.

Anonymous said...

Your description of... whatever that was (jigglyball? anyone... bueller?) cracked me up! Classic!

Abbie said...

You absolutely make me laugh every morning. Thank you1

Lose That Girl said...

As a Canadian, yes...home country of hockey - ICE hockey for those who require clarification (like the baker of this horror show)...I had to laugh and laugh and laugh...oh dear. Some sad folk out there.

Shelli said...

My high school is an AHS with a great field hockey team...

I sure hope this cake was for them. Their coach is a colorblind graphic designer. I'm sure he loved it!

horriblelicenseplates said...

I worked at a Dairy Queen once and some of the cakes I decorated should have been free. I would say this was a good start to a good cake, but then I would be lying.

Leslie said...

*wipes tears away* Thanks Jen. I'm sick and hurting pretty badly right now and your commentary on this cake is the first thing that really made me crack a smile in the past two days.

David B said...

I don't know--field hockey, blue field...Does Boise State have a field hockey team?

JRM said...

Now, let's just wait a minute here! Maybe this AHS is in Kentucky and everyone knows about high quality Kentucky BLUEgrass. Or perhaps their school's pep band was known for playing bluegrass music during the games and they wanted to give them a tribute as well.

Ah, who am I kidding? They should have paid someone to take the cake out of store so no potential customers could see it! It's simply not enough for it to merely be free.

The Seeker said...

I guess the decorator really needed Sarah Palin there to explain hockey to him/her.

Shawna said...

Ha ha ha! I didn't get it at first. You see, I am from Boise Idaho, and our football team plays on blue turf!! I just thought it was a really good field hockey team and they got to play on blue turf, too!

KatyBelle said...

That sounds like Calvinball!! Only with more rules.

Toni Marie said...

The Boise State reference is FUNNNNNNY. Too bad there are probably only 5 people who read Cakewrecks who know that Boise State has a blue field.

I love this cake. Even without the whole field hockey debacle, the piping/lettering is simply not good enough to pay for. Not even close. And then when you're taking in the wreckitude of the piping and lettering.... you get to soak in the "oh crap it's field hockey" and it just gets wrecky all over again. Classic.

Julie said...

I'm with kansas girl... Calvinball was the first thing to come to mind.

I'll be point guard. Who's pitching?

Poetry Sue said...

Yikes! I never thought anyone would ever confuse field hockey (girls and sometimes boys beating the crap out of each other with wooden sticks to get a little round piece of rubber to the other end of the field) with ice hockey (boys and sometimes girls beating the crap out of each other with wooden sticks trying to get a little flat piece of rubber to the other end of the field)

go figure

Tracy O said...

Beyond the field hockey/ice hockey debate, did anyone else notice there are NO GOALS - how is anyone supposed to win?
Tracy
Go Gladiators!! (ECHL ICE hockey in Atlanta!)

Angela said...

The random placement of "Hockey" makes it Cake Wrecks art.

VPIReiner said...

LOL! love the commentary and the explanation for us non-sporty types!

briarmuse said...

Wreck aside, I'm not sure I'd want to buy a cake from a bakery with a name that translates as "Rock Brothers."

Annimal said...

oops little mistake, the hot chocolate is only served when no one scores. That's the best part!
BTW,you should publish a book. I'd buy it!

Cassykins said...

Um, I love you. Ok no, I'm not that creepy. You absolutely slay me, though.

Chiclet said...

I would have LOVED to hear the conversation that went on for that cake to be free. I imagine something like:

Decorator: Here's your cake!
Field Hockey Mom: That's my cake?
D: Yep, AHS Field Hockey
FHM: Why is it blue?
D (getting annoyed): For the ice, Ma'am
FHM: Field Hockey is played on a field, not ice.
D: You should have been more specific.
FHM: It's called FIELD Hockey!
D: Let me get my manager...

Leenie said...

Wow. Thats all I can say. Wow.

J Rob said...

Calvinball!

Amalia said...

Oh! Thanks to the comments...now I get it! I thought you were being stupid because you thought it was funny but really you are very smart and funny. I didn't get that is was supposed to be Field Hockey, clear diff from the ice kind...and the footbal and basketball references...Der!

You are so witty and snarktastic, I can't keep up!

sues2u2 said...

I am so amazed @ how knowledgeable you are! Wow!!! Ummm, okay, I was being a bit sarcastic but yeah, hockey is pretty cool.

The only nice thing to say about that cake is that it was free. (trying to do that whole do unto others thing this week. We'll see how it goes!)

Cody said...

Um, people, we only need one person to explain that the cake should have grass and not ice. We all get it now because it's been said over and over and over and over (see?).If we're going to critique cakes, we should use some common sense to prevent critiques on our critiques about these cakes. Geez. :\

hilary said...

I went to an ice hockey game to humor my husband, and it was amazing! They ram up against the glass, which was really close to us, and one player even bled ALL over the ice. They all just sat there so I wondered how they were going to clean it up. My husband explained to me that they were waiting for the blood to freeze so they could scrape it off!

Anonymous said...

No, no..it's a field of Kentucky BLUE grass! :o)
~Amy B

liz said...

Wow. So I didn't even read the word "field" until these comments. In any case, this cake still doesn't look like anything I've ever seen.

Cassykins said...

Cody - comments are monitored, so likely a lot of the people saying the same thing also commented around the same time and were all pending approval (meaning no one could see someone else said the same thing)

Poetikat said...

What we need here is a big ol' ZAMBONI. (Place cake on ice and let 'er rip!)

Kat

Poetikat said...

Oops! Field Hockey. Got it.

No problem, a lawn-roller will do.

Kat

aj2x said...

The thing I find funny is the "no charge" sticker. They couldn't provide a PROPERLY decorated cake even though they knew this one was a loss? That grocery is only a few miles away from me, a new store in a ritzy neighborhood. I'll have to check the bakery out more closely.

ryan said...

The thing is, even if it were for an ice hockey team, the cake still shouldn't be blue. It should be white -- just like an ice rink.

Super Extra Fail.

Nakia said...

To Cody: It's said over and over because comments aren't published immediately as they are screened first, so people cannot see right away that it has already been mentioned by others.

Anonymous said...

Awesome! I've been to Roche Brothers (pronounced Roach) any number of times, and can totally see why this happened. It's an upscale grocery store in the suburbs of Boston where the employees are mostly Brazilian. I don't think they play either kind of hockey in Brazil, so your description is probably about what the decorator imagined.
Jen

The Pedgehog said...

I'm with Cody - doesn't anyone who comments read the other comments first? My favourite thing about this Wreck is that so many commenters were stupid enough to point out that field hockey and ice hockey are different, after it had been pointed out about eight million times already! Good job friends.

TB Tabby said...

My love of hockey is limited to Ice Hockey for the NES, which I sometimes play on the Wii's Virtual Console. But that love is great. When I saw this cake, I started uncontrollably humming the music from the game.

And even I know the difference between ice and field hockey.

Aviatrix said...

Kudos to the baker for recognizing that they screwed up.

I've got to wonder: do you have so many mean-spirited or spam comments that you have to moderate? I don't moderate comments on my blog, just captcha on initial entry and I very rarely have to remove a comment. It's nice to let readers have a dialogue even when I'm not there, and cuts down on everyone saying the same thing.

nixtress said...

CLEARLY, you're not a golfer.

Anonymous said...

I used to play field hockey.
Believe me, the field looks NOTHING like that. What a shame.

At least it was free!

Kelly said...

I wasn't aware of the hockey rules, either. That is way more interesting than I thought it was. I will still try to get a man to explain it to me though, so I can use the term "butterfly net" to make him mad.

Meg said...

Can't we all just get along? It is pretty easy to skim past duplicate comments if they bother you so much.

And to the poster who mentioned jiggly ball - LOVE IT!

thing1thatiam said...

It seems that the decorator recognized their mistake with the obvious "Field Hockey" writing, and putting an ice rink instead. Hilarious, and I'm so glad you grasped the concept of hockey so well! =D

bridget said...

Seeker: This would be the only thing that Sara Palin coould explain!

arensb said...

Okay, hockey makes sense to me now. But I remember hearing that it also involves fights. Is that where the padded gloves and yelling "Adrienne!" come in?

JKH said...

they must have been playing on Boise State University's football field, which really does have blue turf :-)

Princeton McKinney said...

1. I would love to see that game you described played.

2. If I had ordered this cake I would be running from the store shouting..."Yay! Free Cake!" At least this wreck looks edible.

3. The first thing that crossed my mind was that the team might be from Texas and playing in a field of Blue Bonnets.

4. PS...I miss the ECHL Pensacola Ice Pilots :(

Camille said...

MAYBE... just maybe the decorator is color blind and thought it was green only to finish and show it to a co-worker and get an "oh crap!"

Or maybe BSU is going to start having field hockey games on the blue turf on the off season.

You know, when BSU installed the blue turf they had big problems with ducks crash landing thinking it was water.. I wonder if any ducks will try to land on this cake? Might help it out a little.

Linley Dolby said...

Sounds a lot like Quidditch!

sunlizzard said...

I'm kinda liking that bakery, though. I mean, understanding what an unsalvageable disaster they'd wrought, and--before the customer even arrived to complain--surrendering in advance, without even a token fight? That's, well.... almost classy, y'know?

Anonymous said...

This is what it should have looked like! Too funny.

Bethany said...

Your hubby needs to not talk about hockey ever again lol.

AlisonH said...

Poetikat--love the zamboni idea! And Kansas Girl--can we play Calvinball with a zamboni playing?

Mab said...

Ha, I would hope it was free, seeing as the theme of the cake and sports team the cake was intended for don't match...field hockey is played on grass, not ice...can we also point out the decorator's stellar spacing? thanks go there aren't any quotation marks.

Phyllis said...

Aviatrix: Not that anyone looks at my blog other than my mom so it's not my personal experience, but on the busier blogs, you're more likely to get random trolls saying awful things or ads for viagra or whatever.

And I'm with kansas girl on teh Calvin ball! comment :)

Anonymous said...

While it was rather rude of the pedgehog to call the other posters stupid, I do see her point along with Cody's. Even if comments are posted in batches thereby resulting in the same comment being made multiple times, these same comments show up in each batch. PLEASE do your fellow posters (and Jen) a favor and read the previous comments before you add yours. Thanks!

Poetikat said...

Pedgehog - not everyone has time to read every single comment or indeed, every word of every post. Obviously, you do.

Kat

lois said...

1. You have the best blog ever, and I respect your right to review the comments in whatever way you desire. If people don't like it, then they have the right to NOT POST a comment and/or NOT READ the comments.

2. I found it very amusing that pedgehog's complaint about people saying the same thing that other people were saying was already said many times by other people. So, to pedgehog I quote back: "Good job friend."

Rosengeranium said...

Thanks for writing the most comprehensible description of hockey ever!

I'm living in Sweden, a country that has two seasons; football (ie. soccer - also called summer by the unknowing) and hockey (winter). In the old times all malefolk had to stay in during those season to "watch the game". Nowadays, in these modern and enlightened times, every emancipated woman joins them.

I'm clearly oldfashioned...

The Hyperlexian Aspie said...

hahahahahahahahahaha your explanation of hockey is even funnier than the cake!

Aviatrix -- I agree with you wholeheartedly.

Lizzi said...

The design is fairly accurate for a badly-drawn ice rink, but unfortunately they are playing field hockey.

I think the cake decorator should have googled the words "field hockey" before they made this cake... There are plenty of photos of what a field looks like in 'google images'!

Anonymous said...

Just when I think you can't get any funnier, you slay me once again! Thanks for the wrecks, but even more, thanks for the commentary. Those who don't read the comments are surely missing out!

What the puck was he thinking.

I bet he was walking on thin ice with his boss

He wishes he had a skate-goat.

Just goes to show that you can't have your feild hockey and eat too.

the mom may have committed a butt-ending penalty on the decorator with barry's booty cake.

Thanks I will be here all week. don't forget to tip you waitress

d said...

I did not read all the comments maybe this was already brought up but. I would not buy a cake from a place whose name could easily be missed pronounced as roach bros. Thats just gross. must be french

Dea said...

Bwahaha!!! From the messed up cake, to your hockey rules - WIN!!! :D

Mariam67 said...

As a Canadian, I have to say I really enjoyed your description of the rules of hockey. I don't think anyone's ever gotten it so accurate before!

Also, I would take the cake. It's hideous, but hello, free cake! :p

Aleta said...

I don't know a thing about hockey, so this was an educational post for me. Thanks for sharing and funny about the cake and what you learn in life.

Ziggyeor said...

oh my I didn't even read it properly to get the full wreckyness! I was puzzled on how they were going to score! ROFL to funny.

And a great opener to the NHL hockey season btw! It starts tonight :D

Julie said...

Too funny! My little bro used to decorate cakes for the same supermarket chain....I guess they need him back!

Chris H said...

Funny site ya have here! I found ya via another's blog. I am going to be bloody 50 in a week or so and am getting me a big cake, I hope like hell it looks OK!

John (the hubby of Jen) said...

Hey guys,

Just so you know, moderating comments is HARD. Really, it's not a lot of fun. We read the bad with the good which is sometimes truly disheartening. Occasionally, we even have to find family members to do it for us if we aren't gonna be prompt about it. But Jen made a commitment when she started this blog that there would be no profanity and minimal objectionable material so that, for the most part, the site would be kid safe.

So, yes. It stinks that we get repeated comments. We wish every commenter would be able to express their view without potentially hurting someone else. Or us, for that matter. But sadly it isn't so.

I only ask that you extend us some grace in our efforts to continue to have a great site that is safe and fun for everybody.

Wreck on!

suzi said...

I hope the people who said that this post was educational re: the rules of hockey realize that Jen was being her usual funny and sarcastic self when describing the sport. She mashed together just about every sport since hockey is boring and causes her to zone out when her husband is explaining it (at least, that's what I imagine). Those are NOT the rules of hockey. They are the rules of hockey, rugby, football, golf, and who knows what else.

That being said, I love this blog and it brings much laughter to my life. Thank you!

Sarah said...

Oh thats bad. They should have PAID the customer to take it!

I love how you can grow blue grass out in the U.S.A. Now I understand how the game of hockey is played. My husband will be so impressed with me next time we watch the Bulls play.

Calantha said...

LMAO @ your description of hockey. I'm not sure how many sports you managed to smash together there, but that was hee-larious! And I love how the bakery just gave them the cake for free once they realized what a huge mistake they'd made. Now that's customer service. At least the darn thing looks edible.

PS: Calvinball!

Nakia said...

Jenn/Hubby,

I'm sorry you receive disheartening and critical comments at times. I hope all the hearts YOU lift and the smiles you give so many people all over the world overshadows the few negative ones. Wreck on! :-)

Anonymous said...

Dearest Cody-
Just in case you believe that the sole purpose of this blog is to critique cakes .... I wanted to point out the hundreds of comments added each week that showcase clever interpretations and witty prose. To focus on the technical merit of cake-decorating alone would be far less entertaining!!!

Morgan said...

Was I the only one thinking it was a mis-spelled "Ashfield"?

AJ and Dexter's Mom said...

If this is your explanation of hockey, I can't wait for someone to design a cricket cake wreck!

I look forward to your posts every day! Thanks so much.

fuzzandfuzzlet said...

I am noticing a trend in all the sports cakes you post... they all look like crop circles. Are aliens taking over bakeries?

Sariah said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!.

Okay... breathing... I'm okay... oh, wait...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Etiquette Bitch said...

not sure if anyone caught this, but i'm fairly sure there was no charge because the Circle was-i'm guessing- probably supposed to be an actual *image* of the field (rink? i'm confused with all this ice/field hocky confusion).

Amy said...

I kid you not, It took me until you said the word "kick" for me to realize this wasn't a serious description. No, really. I was actually thinking to myself "why the ridiculously long description of hocky?" by the way, are there really nets on the hocky sticks?

mousekemom said...

Okay, my question is this...is it supposed to be ice hockey or field hockey? It looks sort of like ice because of the blue, but is sorta set up like field. I guess it is supposed to be field hockey in the school colors? Good grief...at least the bakery realized it was a wreck and refused to charge! LOL

fauren said...

Ah, Roche Bros. of Wellesley Hills, MA. I know it well... that's the grocery store I grew up stealing candy from. I couldn't be more proud.

(And Yes, I can confirm that the name of this grocery store is pronounced like "roach.")

tara said...

Morgan, I thought it must have been misspelled "ashfield," too, but Ashfield is too far away from Wellesley, where the cake was made. though there is an AshLAND nearby, which a confused baker could have screwed up (we all know stranger things have happened), I don't think that's the case. the date on the tag (nov 11th) matches up with the end of fieldhockey season, not ice hockey.

Jon said...

I'm 80% sure I used to work at the grocery store that made this cake...

NOT IN THE BAKERY THOUGH! I SWEAR!

Theo said...

In Defence of this cake you have here 2 problems. ! the tag on the cake has a 31 day code and misc bakery tags have a 3 day code. and the cake decorations is what is called a "kitcake" which the customer orders. Decoorators dont just put this on themselves. So it would seem once again it is the customors fault for ordereding this cake and while not the best looking cake......the whole thing just doesnt add up. I deal daily with people who ask for the most whacked out things on a cake only to cry when they get what the asked for.

Erin said...

It looks more like a crop circle than a hockey rink.

Anonymous said...

Most of my experience with hockey involved prancing around on a muddy field at the girls' private school I went to, and my main experience with the American take on hockey was watching episodes of Winnie the Pooh and the Simpsons in which they play it, and, more recently, watching Kevin Smith's movie "Dogma" and puzzling for a while over whether the redhaired ringleader of the demonic kids who go round beating people with hockey sticks was a boy or a girl. I'm still pretty certain that isn't what a hockey rink is supposed to look like.

Word verification: funcruns. Sounds like a cuss. Or perhaps some form of game involving hockey sticks and cake.

found your site and love it. cringed a little when I saw this was by my beloved Roche Brothers. Ah well; can't win 'em all!

Are you messing up hockey and field hockey intentionally?

I would have expected more hockey-related cake wrecks. I mean, you always hear about the players icing the puck...
