Amused Am I

Saturday, March 14, 2009


Spelled wrong this cake is, and lonely-looking that raspberry.

Christine A., if 60 miles I did, disappointed in this cake I would be.
Fiona Picklebottom said...

Maybe the cake was for Yoda. :)

Super Squared said...

LMAO, I'd be disappointed with that measly old cake after 60 miles of anything. Make me laugh you did.

Emiliy said...

did yoda order this cake? it sounds like he talks.

Kim H. said...

When did Yoda start doing cake decorating?!

Sarah, The New Girl said...

poor raspberry, it is.

C. Beth said...

Yoda cakes are fun, even in pink.

Perpetual Mommy Exhaustion said...

Is the decorater from the Degoba system?

shawn said...

Unless it was Yoda talking.. then cake this good would be...
AND let me tell you.. if 60 miles you did.. dissappointed are you!!

vampirefriends said...

This is such a pathetic cake it almost makes me want to cry...

jake - aka the comment novelist said...

Make more sense it would, if Master Yoda on the cake, he was.

asthehind said...

Did Yoda make this cake?

Daeni said...

A cake for Yoda this is!

Vashti said...

It looks like it might be pretty yummy though.

Shira-chan said...

giggled I did. funny that cake is. good one!

For Jar Jar Binks this cake was made thinks I.

Amy said...

Used the force, this wreckerator should have.

milk and cookeez said...

Yoda says, "Cake, eat it I will"

Amy said...

The economy is so bad that Yoda has begun an apprenticeship as a cake decorator.

The line, "Do or do not. There is no try," comes to mind. And? "That is why you fail."

paudream said...

By the way, it says "congraDulations" (I suppose. This baker should take the alineation classes from older posts).

Shadow said...

A lonely nipple perhaps??
Sad that cake looks.

Pamela said...

:)

D.B. Echo said...

Hmmm. I wonder if this was supposed to be a "boob" cake?

Mare said...

as an English major and editor, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people spell it "congradulations" and not with the correct "t." UGH!

Sarah said...

Laughing I am.

gryphondear said...

I'm glad you mentioned that was a raspberry (raspberry?) I thought it was a prune. Gave a whole different mind visual of 60 miles.

oh now that is the best one I've seen in a long time. that lonely little berry in the middle just cracks me up!

It sounds like Yoda is getting into cake decoration. Decorating I am, yes

From the Yoda/Dr. Suess bakery it is, yes.

Rebecca said...

If Yoda ordered this cake, then I can understand...

jillipep said...

60 miles? Breast cancer walk, maybe? Would give that lone raspberry some meaning, anyway... ;)

Did Yoda commission this cake?

Blalock said...

Love it!!! Your commentary always makes me laugh.

Cooking_With_Ginger said...

You must get rid of the flying ad!

Christa said...

Sickened also am I. For what she did 60 miles wonders I?
Okay this is making my head hurt, it's like translating Spanish!

D'Lyn said...

Did this person walk the Breast Cancer 3-Day? 60 miles in 3 days to raise money for the CURE?? I do the 3-Day each year in memory of my Mom and am wondering if that's what this cake is for. If so, after sleeping in a pink tent for two days and peeing in a porta-potty every 3 miles, this cake would bring a few laughs! p.s. Love your site! And so do all my friends!

Jen said...

I have to wonder if this was a cake made for someone who completed the 3-Day breast cancer walk... that might explain the lonely little raspberry, and add a whole other level of wreckiness to it... :-)

Samm Mac said...

Did Yoda make this!?

Sue said...

Channeling Yoda maybe they were. Poor sad cake it is.

M said...

That's a very sad cake...

jax said...

maybe it was for yoda? :)

Anon E. Mouse said...

talk like yoda, this is.

Wow, bad grammar combined with bad spelling...what a terrible combo!

thedeadcantdie said...

I actually like how this is worded. It's an ugly cake, though.

So Yoda did 60 miles of what?

60th Birthday Happy to you!

laura beth said...

Maybe it's because I'm allergic to it, but that raspberry looks extremely threatening for some reason. It's like he doesn't care that he's the only one on that cake... he's not afraid to be seen, upside down, without any friends. Personally, I think that raspberry might be trying to take over the world.

and I think Yoda might be kinda mad that we are ripping off his language... just sayin

Liza said...

Like Yoda, we speak.

jlk said...

Sounds like Yoda was the wreckerator here.

First!

Tracy said...

Sixty miles you did. Strawberry you get. Jedi master Yoda rest of cake gets.

MarieA said...

Yoda decorated did! LMAO!!!!

Anonymous said...

Any chance it was supposed to read:

Congratulations!

60 Miles!

You did it!

They just left off the "it"?

Angie said...

It looks like it's made of potted meat.

Joy said...

Looks like a stack of baloney, it does

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Was this Dagobah Decorators?

The comments on this one are inspired!

Dorci Harris said...

What's up with that frosting color, too? I know it's supposed to be strawberry, but it looks more like flesh-toned. Ew. Food coloring, people!

Katie Meyers said...

i think this is my favorite cake i have ever seen on this site. that raspberry. oh my god.

utaduta said...

i love how the words are melting of the cake! the rest of congratulations is on the side of the cake or something. carp did i even spell it right?! ha!

Heidi 'n' Jeff said...

I think the only time a lone piece of fruit works on a cake is if it's a cherry. I look back to classic Disney cartoons. If they had a cake, it was always finished with a cherry.

Marcie said...

I love your blog, but must admit I haven't laughed *out loud* in a while. (Silently, yes :) Today I got my laugh out loud. My almost-two-year old saw me laughing and joined in. Thanks for the chuckles! Sarah and little J.

Sally Comes Unraveled said...

Please with cake, Yoda is.

Sorry about another Yoda joke, Sally is.

madrobins said...

If it were green, with long twisty ears, less disturbing the misspelling might have been.

Or not.

Amy said...

Sad, that cake is.
~Amy B

fergojisan said...

I also thought that they just forgot the "it" at the end. Maybe this cake is part of the "Cakes Without Borders" program.

I refuse to mention any Star Wars characters here. :)

karina said...

Expected to see Yoda when reading the title, I did.

Yoda said...

If 900 years you lived, a few hobbies you would need, and if English your 31st language was, some errors you would make.

Truly Hideous Gifts said...

I would be so depressed if I received that!!

Jenn J said...

Looking at the previous comments aboutthe Breast Cancer Walk for a possible theme, this brings a whole new spin on the "Boob Cake". A cake that looks like a boob...or a cake done by a boob? You choose. :)

Mandee said...

Poor sad little raspberry! :( Who gets the raspberry? The person who did the 60 miles? The person cutting the cake? Or are you supposed to try to divide the raspberry amongst all the people eating the cake?

Sierra Mama said...

looks like a nipple, it does

Laura said...

LMAO
hmmmm...hilarious, your posts will be.
Strong, the funny Force is with you!

Donna said...

The cake is small because the jock-ette who did 60 miles doesn't eat as much cake as I do. That's why she can DO 60 miles! :)

Elizabeth said...

On the plus side, that cake looks like an eight-layer raspberry liqueur cake, which is one of the most delicious things known to man.
A silver lining there always is.

Jen said...

@ Cooking with Ginger - dang, is that flying ad STILL up? Rats. We've asked our ad agency to remove it twice now. I'm on it - thanks for letting me know.

twitchywoman said...

haha I love the commentary, I actually LOLed.

Jennifer said...

Maybe it's supposed to look flesh colored... and the lone raspberry is supposed to look like a nipple.
Perhaps she walked 60 miles in the breast cancer 3-day? Then a breast cake would be appropriate. The wording (and spelling) however - is horrendous.

Anonymous said...

You're reading it wrong!! Read from the bottom up -- "You did 60 miles -- raspberry -- congraDulations" Not sure what the raspberry is for -- must have some meaning between the two of them. Juanita

Catsin said...

A Wreckerator, Yoda is?
Allowed, the mispelling is, for bad english Yoda speaks.

Anonymous said...

Pass the lightsaber you will, so cut the cake I can. This is not the berry you have been looking for, move along now.

Bring the Darth Vader baby cake forward you will. Much tasties it looks.

Heather said...

I took a picture of this really terrible cake today, but I was using my dad's phone and apparently cannot send it to myself. :(

Anonymous said...

I actually didn't think that the grammar and spelling were the worst part of the cake...to me it looks like a stack of oversized bologna. What color is that frosting? YUCK!

Vendetta said...

HOLY Yoda cake. Haha

Wendy said...

I've been having a really yucky day and this cake and your comments made me laugh HARD, which I really needed. I agree that 60 miles of anything deserves much better than this! Although maybe if it was running and the person's in training, an ugly cake might help them say no to a second slice. I hope he/she got the raspberry on their slice!

Paula and Skip said...

Poor thing, however most of my cakes look similar and they don,t get the credit of being associated with Yoda.

Anonymous said...

I'd like to thanks everyone who mentioned how much that cake looks like a boob. I almost thought the decorator was going to get away with it. It is soooooooooooo a breasticle cake.

Verification word:
scetom

... no comment.

Lorna said...

My guess is it's for someone that walked the breast cancer 3 day, and it's a boob, with a raspberry for a nipple.

kyooty said...

but why is there no picture of pi today?

Scritzy said...

The berry isn't even centered!

Jacquie said...

Besides the Yoda talk did anyone else notice Congratulations is spelled congraDulations?

sendingtheclowns said...

So why all the grooves on the side? Was it done on a lathe of some sort? Or, could it be that there are actually 10 little flat layers, each one representing 6 of The Miles?
Maybe the unnamed honoree did 60 miles of berry-picking???? (Oh, Gawd--shades of The Grapes of Wrath!)
At any rate, we may never know the answers --OR what is causing the cake to erupt in pimples.

The Maples said...

Long time reader, first time commenter...

Maybe Yoda just finished the breast cancer 3 day... doesn't it look like a giant nipple with the lonely raspberry?

The Robinsons said...

This may be a short post, but made me laugh out loud, it did!

pripyet said...

Off center, this is.

joyce said...

you have the smartest commenters ever. That cake had me stumped. I agree with Jill---must be for some breast cancer walk, but talking like Yoda is funny, too.

But, one raspberry? Is that like giving someone "the" raspberry?

fuzzandfuzzlet said...

A bit ironic to celebrate 60 miles ( of what I assume is some type of exercise) with cake.

I wonder if Sam I Am is involved?

Kassie said...

LMAO at all the Yoda comments!

elesa said...

This may be my favorite post so far. How can two lines be so, so funny?

TB Tabby said...

I think there was supposed to be an "it" at the bottom. But this amuses me, especially since I recently got the XBox 360 version of Soul Calibur IV that features Yoda.

Giusi. said...

FLMAO!!!!!

i love you and yer comments bahahahhaa
yer the best <333

Amber said...

And such lovely, centered writing.

Trish said...

OK, I won't kill the Yoda references, though it's really freakin' funny.

Basically, the cake is OK. Dull, but OK. It's not leaning over, the icing looks consistent, (with little bits 'o berry in it) and it seems really tall! The only downfall is the half-assed script, misspellings and the fact that it looks like the Yoda words are slowly sliding off the cake. Still, a wreck is a wreck!

Stranger Than Friction said...

Tee-hee. Rasberry looks tasty.

cpurl17 said...

Hi! I'm the Christine A. who did the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk and this was my supposed to be my "Congratulations! You Did It!" celebration cake. My sister and I laughed so hard, and after 60 miles and feet covered with blisters, this cake was worth it!

kelliebean said...

I agree. For Yoda this cake was.

Penguins13 said...

I have laughed at a lot of your posts. But this one had me laughing, it nearly woke my kids, it did

Caitlan said...

I think it is supposed to be written the way those chalk instructions on the ground are when you do a bike race, like you read them bottom-to-top as you ride over them.
I can't justify the raspberry, however.

Marji said...

Rolled on floor laughing I did. Favorite post ever this is.

jackie31337 said...

kyooty said but why is there no picture of pi today?

Because this is cake wrecks, not pie wrecks. Although that would be amusing, too.

Layla said...

The most perplexing thing to me is that the icing is very well done. This cake is even, leveled, and the buttercream (that's not fondant) is very smooth. The little ridges from the spatula on the side are even, so whoever
*iced* it had a steady hand and knew what they were doing, even if they didn't take the time to smooth it down completely.

My guess it this was one of those blank "pick me and ad your message" cakes, and that whoever put the crap on top was on a different shift and wasn't responsible for the cake prior to that moment.

Dreamybee said...

In all fairness, "Congratulations" takes up a lot more room on a cake than you think it will when you start writing!

Bartelmy said...

You wouldn't, you'd pounce on it, mouth first.

"Omnomnomnom, neeeeeed sugary glucose, hit the wall, caaaaaaaaaake."

Susan said...

hahahahahahahahahahahaha!! *gasp* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah.... *gasp* hahahahahaha, hahahahahaha. Oh. my. That was funny - I haven't laughed out loud at cake in such a long time. This is as good as the naked mohawk baby carrot jockeys!
Thanks for that, I needed it.

Misha said...

See, this would have been the perfect segue into that Yoda cake I submitted... I am assuming it hasn't been posted yet because you're waiting to collect more Star Wars stuff for an EPIC post. ;)

JD said...

the force is strong with that one

hollyml said...

I was trying to figure out why a stack of blank CDs (still on the spindle of the packaging) would have "60 miles" written on the top one...60 minutes, maybe. (Although the ones sitting in my desk drawer right now say 80 minutes.)

WV: porep. That's an extremely porepresentation of a breast, if that's what was intended.

Well, we know Yoda wants to save the tatas!

I really, really hope that no one actually paid for that mess.

Anyone who could charge for that pinnacle of half-a55edness should have piped the telephone number of a leading local proctologist on teh side of the cake.

Because if you give that to someone who did 60 miles of anything (I'm including sitting in the back seat with your nose pressed against the window, okay?!), you're likely to need medical assistance to remove the cake from the bodily orifice into which it would have been deservedly stuffed.

Caitie Miller said...

I'm wondering exactly what that 60 miles was of. Running? Biking? Cake-hucking?

Kim said...

As a Breast Cancer 3-Day walker, I'd be willing to bet that this cake was made to celebrate at the end of that very long weekend. And perhaps a walker themselves did the decorating for their team, which explains the slight resemblance to a boob, as well as the misspellings and grammar. Trust me, after walking 60 miles, your brain is mush.

I know this is from a while ago, but I couldn't help but notice that this cake looks like a stack of ham slices.

Delish cakes but looks like someone did a horrible job on the writing...

Disappointing very, is this cake, LOL. (See? Backwards that is!)

Beth Gardner said...

Man, after 60 miles of flying the star ship around Dagobah, apparently Yoda felt like he deserved some reward. Imagine him at the store.
Store...person: How can I help you sir?
Yoda: Order a cake, I want to. Buttercream you have it do you?

I think it might be for a guy named Miles who turned 60. "Congratulations, Miles! 60 - You did it!" or the like. Did anyone think about that?
