Way to "Go," Dad

Thursday, December 31, 2009

There are no words....

to explain these words:


My, my. "Daddy" looks rather flushed, doesn't he?

Frankly, I'm not sure which would be more disturbing: a father giving this cake to his daughter, or someone referring to any kind of toilet activity as "daddy love." [gagging] Yeah. Ok, well, if you'll excuse me, I have to go hack up a hairball now.

Solli S., you're #1 in my book. (And #2 in "Daddy's.")

That's some ugly tile. It looks like his toilet is on graph paper.

Bin said...

All I can think is that it's a cake FOR Daddy, with love from Beth.

For Daddy
Love, Beth.

What is sitting on the back of the tank?

redgirl said...

How was this even acceptable to the baker/decorator?

sharalyns said...

I have no comment....*shudders*

Fluffy Cow said...

Oh man... now I'm going to have that image stuck in my brain all day...

KittyKat said...

Maybe it was supposed to say "TO Daddy, Love Beth"

What a difference 2 letters can make.

If it said that, it would make lots more sense.

Amanda M. said...

I...I just don't get it. What kind of message is that?!?!

wv: whijna: the sound I made when I couldn't think of a real word to describe my horror upon seeing this "cake"

Viewtiful_Justin said...

I wonder if there's a chocolate kiss in the bowl...

Receptionist Row said...

I'm not afraid to say it...Time to call DSS. Something is NOT right! No matter the angle I try, this cake is wrong. I am not easily offended....butt...

Diana said...

Well executed AND profoundly disturbing...what can be better! Makes one think of the old adage that you can tell a great deal about a person by how they eat their chocolate Easter bunny. Make mine a piece from the....never mind, I think I'll start my New Year's resolution early.

Anonymous said...

Sense: This cake makes none.

bassgirl said...

It's all in the punctuation, or lack of it.

Daddy. Love, Beth.
Daddy Love. Beth
Daddy, Love Beth

I took it as Beth giving Daddy the cake, maybe on the anniversary of her toilet training? Anyway, ick.

Trevor said...

It's sad, as the cake is actually fairly well done. I want to know if the decorator did just what the person asked for, or if the decorator came up with this idea. *shudder*

I'm going back to my New Year's clock cake now....

Melissa said...

Oh my word. I would love to know the story behind this cake. Even though I suspect it'd make me vomit.

colleenoz said...

Well, I suppose the other alternative is that it might have been intended to mean "_To_ Daddy, love Beth", which is still pretty disturbing, if that's the enduring image Beth has of her father.
Truly bizarre. Why would anyone think that was a good idea?
wv: acches- thinking about that cake gives me head acches

Autumn2May said...

Maybe it's For Daddy with Love from Beth? Which is just as creepy really.

Jennie :)

Ellen said...

umm, which part of this cake do I want to eat? NONE.

Are people having trouble with ideas for cakes?

Is this a REAL cake?
Is it??

Le said...

Not to question your cake authoritative-ness but this doesn't look like a cake to me.

Yota Armai said...

I really, really, really hope there is an inside joke that we're just not getting here. Please, because I just don't think I can handle it otherwise.

Janibach said...

It's beautifully made but I'd really like to know the story behind it because with those words it's... odd.

Stella said...

ohmygosh. what kind of a cake is that anyways?

Wishing you Jen & JOhn the best in 2010! Thanks for the amazing (?) cake wrecky year! To many more!

Amy said...

Whatever you do, don't google image search "toilet cake"....ewww....

Miranda said...

GROSSSSSSSS!!! Dude...who would do this? This is hella tasteless.

Elena said...

Or it could be "Daddy: Love Beth." Like, "Love Beth or she'll take a picture of you on the toilet and post it all over the Internet."

Also, confirmation word: shemixes. What are those? Remixes made by girls? Remixes of girls?

Anonymous said...

This is so not a cake!

mn_me said...

knew someone who used to make "toilet cakes" (complete with mini-tootsie rolls in the bowl and some clear yellow-ish frosting to represent, well, you know... ). why someone would do this for people, i'm not sure.. she thought they were hysterical. I can't understand the humor of this "gag" gift, quite.

emholl said...

Perhaps all that is missing is a question mark? A la "Daddy Loves Beth?" Since Daddy's affection might be in doubt upon receiving such a cake--especially if done in public.

Anonymous said...

creepy

Dan Lewis said...

Dibs on the toilet brush!

Gary said...

Several readers say:
"Maybe it's For Daddy with Love from Beth?"

Which makes more sense HOW?

This cake is actually well-executed, but why, why, why???

I just hope and pray that this cake was not made for my friend who has a daughter named Beth. Beth doesn't seem insane to me, though, so I'm guessing not.

Terry Lee said...

what the what?!?!

i can't ... i just ... don't ... whaaa?!

nothing good can come of this.

nothing.

thehorizontalyoyo said...

Does make a habit of walking in on Daddy going potty?

Or is 'Beth' the name of the toilet?!?!

Adam Cz said...

A lot of folks seem to lack a sense of irony.
Are all of you ACTUALLY shuddering, or are you just putting it in your posts for dramatic effect?

Shanti said...

Re: toilet cakes...I suppose this is the logical next step up (or down) from the litter-box cake.

Verification word: distud. Really.

Anonymous said...

I'm pretty sure that Dad spends a lengthy time reading in the "library". It is probably a family joke. It is a gross family joke when it becomes a gross cake. At least it is not that graphic.

wv:"ablemati" as in "I'm able, matey, to make you a gross cake".

Diana said...

maybe "Beth" is his nickname for his toilet? Or the action he is engaged in?

gesikah said...

Bakery: What would you like on the cake?
Beth: A number two. Daddy. Love, Beth.

Debbi said...

Oh my. Just oh my. Please follow Amy's advice and DO NOT google. I have no words.

WV: wormo. Again ... no words ...

Anonymous said...

Maybe it's Daddy Loves Bath :)

Caroline B said...

Mmmmm, chocolatey...
Puts a whole new slant on 'urinal cake'....

yes,oh yes, my word verification is 'cakie' !!

Mozart's Girl said...

Has this poor little girl actually SEEN her Daddy in this pose?? I am 43 & have NEVER seen my Daddy like this, I'm glad to say....nor would I even care to imagine it, let alone order a cake depicting it!! Weird is not the word....

Etiquette Bitch said...

"disgusting." that was the word i said when i saw this wreck, wreck, wreck. nicely crafted? yes. tasteful? no. dear god, what was the customer thinking? there's no way this can come off as good or, erm, "loving."

I have to go vomit now.

Anonymous said...

I've got it! Maybe the toilet is named Beth!

Mellodee said...

Oh come on, truthfully, aren't all daughters familiar with the concept that Daddy is in the bathroom for a VERY long time every day? I think this is in the nature of a family joke. Actually, its kind of cute. (Okay, stop screaming! You're hurting my ears!)

Anonymous said...

It's probably supposed to be to Daddy from Beth. But wait, that's still extremely disturbing!!

Coffee Lovers said...

Disgusting!!!

Diana said...

Did - not - heed - warning - Googled "toilet cake" - never mind 2012 and the Aztec calender - this is surely THE sign of the end of western civilization as we know it 0-0

Hobbit said...

Yeah, I'm going to assume there is a story behind this cake. Maybe this family just has a strange sense of humor.
Actually, once I got over the shock I decided it was kind of cute.

lisadh said...

Uh, the "cake" has just stunned me, so I'm just going to wish ya'll a very Happy & Safe New Year. That's all.

Thank you for the laughs!

aus_chick said...

I actually mis-read "Solli" as "Soil". I guess that's appropriate though. haha ;-)

Texchanchan said...

Worse than the egregious litter box cakes, which I understand are popular with some people - very young ones. But this. I can't imagine a scenario involving both this cake and psychological health.

OK, going to go think about kittens now.

Anonymous said...

Could this have anything to do with the movie "I love Beth Cooper?" I heard there was toilet humor, haven't seen it myself.

dessertschick said...

Hey Bin - I'm going with an air freshener on the back of the toilet tank. Maybe.

I'm also going with an inside family joke (as Mellodee suggests) that's relatively clean because that makes my day better.

I have never had an urge to google "toilet cake" before, but everyone saying NOT to do it sure makes me want to.

Great way to send out 2009!

WendyMom said...

Um- who gets to eat the bowl part and contents? Yikes.

Anonymous said...

Whatever has caused Daddy and Beth to bond over such an image is at best meant to be shared with their family doctor, at worst with social services, and not ever with the local baker.

Anonymous said...

Even if Daddy just graduated plumbing school, I hope he is a better man than any guy who would deserve to receive such a cake.

I thought so, too. Maybe he's supposed to be at the local gas station?

Jimmy said...

As a rule, I don't like any food that makes me think too much about the other end of the digestive system while I'm trying to eat it. That also includes Hot Pockets since Jim Gaffigan came along.


wv: Recks-- Many happy Recks to CW in the New Year!

Anna said...

I understood this cake right away. Take a look at this and it explains everything:

http://www.amazon.com/Love-You-Forever-Robert-Munsc/dp/0920668372.

It was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. The cake looks just like the front of the book.

Alex said...

"Family Love Michael!"

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

I'm guessing what Beth wants for 2010 is a second toilet in the house. Or that Dad gets de-throned.

wv: sanstal
Many a public restroom is sanstal.

Anonymous said...

I say that the message "Daddy Love Beth" works because the whole thing seems rather primitive, except for the indoor plumbing.

Caren said...

I decided that Amy's advice to NOT google "toilet cake" was a dare, and I followed the lemmings into toilet cake hell. We are indeed a disgusting species...

Note to my friends and family: I do not wish EVER to receive a toilet cake. For any reason. (gagging...)

Karmen M. said...

Maybe Daddy has named the toilet Beth......Daddy loves his beth....hahaha

hj said...

I immediately thought of "Family love Michael," too!

Anonymous said...

actually my reaction was a kid giving it to his dad who was divorced from the kids mom the "love beth" referring to daddy's girlfriend

Victoria said...

I must say while it is unusual; it's still kinda funny. I'm not much on 'bathroom' humour, but this is a whole new angle! I'm sure many of y'all's fathers spent time reading Uncle John's Bathroom Reader... that's what they're for!
I will say, I wouldn't choose to give this to my father...I don't think he'd see the humour in something so...graphic. =)
WV: serterdb wtf? How is that a word?

hmm said...

"to" is missing from the isnscription.

you were warned said...

http://www.wilton.com/forums/messageview.cfm?catid=4&threadid=124841&FTVAR_MSGDBTABLE=


Not sure if my link will work, but check out this cake from the wilton.com website/ life celebrations/ search toilet. Please note that blue jello and baby ruth were involved.

Anonymous said...

So is their relationship involved with a lot of Beth walking in on Daddy during his, ahem, reading time? he looks flushed. maybe blushing?

But yet, the inscription makes it seem like she's telling him what to do. Is Beth a new girlfriend she likes perhaps? still, toilet reference? why?

or is Beth the one on the toilet, learning how to potty train?

Anonymous said...

im thinkning that it is supposed to be more like "To Daddy, Love Beth"

A Mother Heart said...

Did they really expect anyone to EAT this thing???
Dis. Turb. Ing.

Sabrina said...

What exactly is in that magazine "Daddy" is reading?

Gina said...

I, likewise, thought "Family love Michael."

Marmooset said...

It's obviously a rebus:
#2 Daddy, love Beth.
