Twins!

Monday, March 30, 2009

I think Mandy said this was a sports logo of some sort:




Which the bakery in question did a fantastic job recreating in CCC form:

NOT!!

[derisively] Ahahahahahah!
Hahahah!

[snorting hiccup-turned-choke]
Hooheehaha-hack!

[coughing fit]
Ack ack ack!

[sound of water glugging]

[setting glass down] Ahem. Wow, who knew sarcastic sounds of [cough, cough] contempt could be so dangerous? Whew! Gonna have to dial back the maniacal laughter in the future.

What's that? The Wreck? Oh, well, Mandy, I gotta tell ya: Transporter malfunctions like these are why I prefer to travel by shuttlecraft.
Ashley said...

Man, that is one UGLY CCC. O_O

The mind boggles.

Cara said...

Bahaha!! My favorite part is that one paw has 6 claws, and the other has 3!!! That's awesomeness.

Anonymous said...

i especially love how the 'cat' has 6 claws on one paw. nice.

Elini said...

Oh goodness... "The mutated alien is gonna eat me" is not something someone should say when presented with a cake.

Michelle my Belle said...

I am insulted! The is the logo for the University of Kentucky! That CCC, though, is about as bad as their basketball team this season!

Kashmir said...

The evil CCC rears its ugly head yet again. How does that 'cake' even come close to the logo? Do people really step back from work like that and go 'Yeah! I think I nailed it!!'?

Cathy said...

My husband is a huge UK fan and he couldn't figure out what it is. So sad....

milk and cookeez said...

It's not bad enough that the cat looks dismembered, but they couldn't even make a decent letter U-come on-why would you ever enev sell that?

DNfromMN said...

egads the face!

Anonymous said...

It's a dreaded CCC, too!

JHalmes said...

ohmigosh! That is terrible!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

Hilarious. That would be about the extent of any of my cake creations...sadly.

Leslie said...

Demon bobcat karate chop action! Keeeyahhhhh!

(you mean that's NOT what it is?)

It's the University of Kentucky Wildcats logo.

trish-punch said...

I *love* the 6 claws on the one hand!!

I have to say - I look forward to reading this blog every day. Thank you for all the giggles!

lois said...

Well, THIS should shut up the complainers who don't like your definition of "wreck". This one is a wreck by ANY definition!

Melissa said...

Hahaahaaa!!!!Laughed for a whole minute at the reference to Dr. McCoy's hatred of all things transporter! And at the thought that the ccc is the outcome of a transporter malfunction! Hahaaahaaa!!!

Christina Kim said...

the shock, the horror!

Judy said...

Wow, It's like seeing double. I bet you could just overlay those pictures and they'd fit perfectly. It's uncanny how much they look alike. I'm,.... I'm,... I'm.... SPEECHLESS!

Kelly said...

As a HUGE Kentucky Wildcats fan, I'm offended at such desecration of a logo!! ;)

Tracy said...

Poor little guy - he's more scared of us than we are of him.

Pink said...

It almost looks as though the cupcakes slid over a little too far, causing the disproportionate look....but wouldn't that cause the icing to split?

fail.

word verification: murecked.
well, they got the "recked" part right.

Amy said...

As a UK fan I am appalled. As a fan of Cake Wrecks, well.... I'm still appalled. lol

kara said...

I love trying to figure out which pieces of that are actually supposed to be limbs. If you told me it had 2 heads, I wouldn't question you.

sour said...

haha "NOT"
good one

Rachel said...

Ack! My family and I are all HUGE UK fans, and we're insulted, lol! Please tell me this wasn't made by a fellow Wildcat!

Doublebanker said...

definitely gotta be tough when they bring a picture for you to replicate!

Alright, so this is the least of that ccc's problems but the color blue they used is UNC tarheel blue which is gross misuse of a color on a team logo if i've ever seen it...

Anonymous said...

A large part of the problem seems to be that the cake was made to conform to the dimensions of the precut cardboard liner and plastic box. I don't think this travesty can be laid solely at the feet of the poor embattled CCC.

Rose and Jill said...

I live in Lexington, which is where the University of Kentucky is located. This wreck just made my day because I am incredibly tired of hearing about UK's basketball team! Thank you!!!

harmzie said...

This looks *exactly* like what would happen in that "blind pictionary" game (you have to do it in Cranium).

I'm not sure how you'd do that with cupcakes & icing. Maybe there's an in-between sketch missing.

Michelle said...

I will walk up to the six-fingered wild cat and say: "Hello... My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"

I see you have 6 fingers on your right paw... someone was looking for you...

:D

Jo Asakura said...

WV: "sping"

The customer's blood vessels went "SPING!" when they saw this monstrosity.

Mara (The Wedding Cabaret) said...

University of Kentucky basketball Logo. that is horrible!

Lisa said...

I am definitely offended at that CCC! I live in Lexington & am a UK fan & UK does not deserve something so ugly!

becca.elpy said...

oh wow!
see i like cupcakes...and i like cake. but just put a bunch of cupcakes on a plate each individually decorated. that looks like a 6-toed demon cat getting attacked by gumby's long lost headless blue twin brothers.
UK fans, i feel sorry for you.

DangGina said...

That's one of the funniest CCCs I've ever seen. I'm grateful you showed us what it was SUPPOSED to look like for 2 reasons: 1-I really wouldn't have known what it was supposed to be without it, and 2-The comparison is hil.ar.i.ous!

Anonymous said...

While this CCC is just horrifying, I have to say, whose bright idea was it to request this logo as a CCC versus a sheet cake? It's like they're asking for a wreck.

WV: lucke

They're lucke it didn't look worse.

Katie H. said...

Ha! @ Michelle, love the Princess Bride comment! Seriously though, if you hadn't included the picture, I would have no idea what that was supposed to be.

thisbagisnotatoy said...

I love the way all the components are there without coming together to mean anything. I imagine the cake whispering, "Kill me. Kiiill meeee."

sergeilovestonya said...

OMG I am a University of Kentucky alum and I am totally appalled at what I am witnessing. Almost as appalled at how bad the basketball team did this year. But not quite.

Rachel said...

It still amazes me when I see the pictures of wrecks that are clearly at somebody's home. Why on Earth would you BUY them? If I special ordered a cake and it looked like that, I would not pay for it.

Shea said...

As a Kentucky native and a huge Wildcats fan, my heart just breaks! In what weird warped view did that person think the ccc beared any resemblance to the Cats' logo?! *weakly* Go cats.

Arlynn said...

(Looking at logo) UofK has a really cool logo. (Looking at CCC) .... (Back to logo) UofK has a really cool logo.

The CCC looks like the cat is trying to karate chop with its freakishly huge back foot. And what's the letters L, K, and a teeny J supposed to stand for? Heh.

At first I was like, oooh that is bad, and then I realized, THOSE ARE CUPCAKES! Nooooooo!

Was it commissioned by a rival team to demoralise them before a big game?

KritterBugg said...

That is one angry looking CCC!

Donna said...

There should be a law against trying to duplicate any kind of animal or logo as a CCC, it never works.

Katherine said...

I always love the Star Trek references.

Amy said...

Looks like it got dropped on the floor.

Mo said...

It has 6 toes on the left side???

Jen said...

WOW. That's bad. I'm speechless.

MJS said...

Was going to comment on mutant appendages but see many have beat me to it. Instead I'll just say "What the...?!?!"

Rob W. said...

This is my favorite wreck so far. And by favorite, I mean most awful. Well done!

joyce said...

Let me say it again. You have the best and most observant commenters. wow.

WV: phicsz---maybe pronounced fixes? Not much gonna phicsz that CCC

the flour child said...

i'm actually rendered speechless.
it would definitely be up for 'best abstract interpretation of a mountain lion with blue suspenders'.

carrie said...

As both a mother of twins and a UK alum, I am appalled by this cake. There does seem to be a lot of fellow wildcats leaving comments today. Did someone give this CCC to Gillispie?

Emily said...

I figured out what the biggest problem is--it started out vertical and they made it horizontal. There was never any chance that it would have worked.

Liz said...

I always appreciate an excuse to incorporate Star Trek references into your posts--wreck-y or otherwise!

Anonymous said...

So glad I'm an alum of UofL. ;-D

Christyn said...

This is for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, my Alma Matter. SO SAD! UK fans are notorious for Wildcat grooms cakes -- and everyone I have seen has been beautiful! This CCC cake might as well represent our current basketball season.. booo!!

Amy said...

ok I gotta say, I blame whoever ordered this cake; CCCs are bad enough when there's a ready-made design- it's hard to create one from a picture, and I'm betting it was made from the exact number of cupcakes the customer wanted and no more- I'm not excusing the technique, but if the decorator in question had had more cupcakes to work with I bet it would have looked a lot more like the picture. I wonder if customers such as these intentionally order CCCs with intricate logos in hopes of being able to submit them to this site. poor decorator probably didn't even take the order!

Naazju said...

Did anyone else notice that this cat seems to defy laws of gravity and nature? I mean, he either has two hands on one side of his body while both his feet are on the completely opposite side or he can walk and kick in pretty much a horizontal fashion without crashing.

Not that it doesn't look like he already had a ridiculous accident . . .

Jumpyham said...

I think that they hired some kindergardeners to do this cake.
^ ^

Everybody now!
That CCC was KUNG-FU-FIGHTING!
(bad bad bad bad bad bad cake)
KINDERGARDENERS ON PATROL!
doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo!

Emily said...

Derisive laughter is indeed dangerous... I almost dropped my laptop when I scrolled down and cracked up at this hideous "likeness"!

Arc said...

I think it's rather charming in it's own way. It's so ugly, it's cute.

B^2 said...

Oh, oh, that is hideous!

The "cat" -- if we can call it that -- looks like it's laying down and dying, not jumping out like on the logo.

What a CCC travesty.

cgreyd said...

I agree with Cara. I was JUST about to comment the exact same thing:

"Bahaha!! My favorite part is that one paw has 6 claws, and the other has 3!!! That's awesomeness."

Anonymous said...

Haven't you lot heard of abstract expressionism?

The baker is expressing his/her angst at the global financial crisis through his/her icing and the sheer terror of trying to cope on minimum wage through shape.

This masterpiece shouldn't be eaten, it should be in an art gallery,

Jessi said...

I actually think this MUST be social commentary on the state of UK basketball - all coming apart and discombobulated and too many claws, I don't know, I'm making this up here. Because, I'm telling you, someone could get killed for that in normal times in cat country!

WV: defacurn - what may happen to that cake if any cat fans find themselves in that bakery

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

It looks like someone foolishly tried to put a blue sweater on a cat who is extremely pissed and trying to get out of it!

Brown said...

Dang, I the cake looks like it was decorated by a seven-year-old.

DIvyblaze said...

I am with Rose and Jill on this one, I also have the misfortune of living in Lexington, KY.

I wish this same wreckmaker would make some Derby CCCs. I am sick to to tears of basketball and horses!

key said...

what the crap is CCC!? hahhaaahahha, still verrrry funny just out the loop on some things!

Casey Becher said...

It doesn't say of the submitter requested the team logo as a CCC. If that't the case, she totally got what she deserved. Then it's not really a wreck because she requested something beyond the aesthetic limits of a CCC. Why would you ever think that would come out looking good? If the wrecorator just decided to make that, then it's a true wreck.

Hyena Overlord said...

UcK is right! It looks like roadkill.


wv...rondl...wheels on the bus go round and rondl?..Wait, did you hear something? I thing you hit something. Ewww there's ccc all over the road.

Scritzy said...

Note to self: Never, never, never ask for a team logo CCC.

Never.

Yikes.

Carmen said...

My 15 year old just asked me what the heck was so funny! WTH man! WTH!

Anonymous said...

Awesome! So many great things going on here...six claws for five toes, two paws growing from the same spot on the right side, the weird mess that is the "face," and the inexplicably warped "U". Good stuff.

However, as someone else also pointed out, whoever requested something this complex as a CCC probably deserved all of this. That request probably scared the poor grocery store decorator to death. Still, I think there could have been some steps that he or she could have taken to prevent this tragic misfortune:

When facing down a customer who requests a complex design *and* an "easy-to-eat, super-fun, state-of-the-art cupcake cake!" (the fallacies of this viewpoint have already been dismantled elsewhere on this site), first gently suggest a nice sheet cake: "Gosh, crazy cupcake-obsessed lady! This is certainly a very cool logo! I think it would look much, much better on a nice, yellow sheet cake. I can make it a lot bigger that way." If the customer persists, I suppose the next best bet is to push the cupcakes into a square shape, apply frosting liberally, and then paint the logo and pretend it's on a sheet cake.

Then again, if you're paid in advance, why not test the limits of your CCC prowess?

P.S. Is it possibly a fan of a rival school of the University of Kentucky ordered this? "Yeah...make it look really, really ugly. Bonus points if it's barely recognizable."

Jessica said...

WOW! There are SOOOO many things wrong with this, um, 'cake' - but whats really confusing is there is a huge wide open orange area there above the U thingy so why in the world didn't they at least make it look like a U?

You know, for those of us who particularly cannot stand that school and everything that it stands for, that actually is a very nice, um, cake. Lol.

I like the six (!) toes on the front paw most <3

it's lovely

SnowFoxCreations said...

"A" sports logo? It's THE sports logo. GO WILDCATS! =D

...and, that really is a horrifying cake... We can only hope that Duke gets caked by the same baker...

That hurts me. A lot. Go Wildcats!

punxxi said...

I especially like the polydactyl look of that giant paw.

D.B. Echo said...

I am wondering if this was ordered by fans of the opposing team!

Bekka said...

Aww...poor little guy. I shall call him Lumpy.

Never thought I'd see the day when UK stood for "Ugly Kitty". Go...Cats??

Jess said...

I dunno... the face is sorta cute. :]

It looks nothing like the logo, but it's kinda cute in a misshapen, sad way.

Treehouse Chef said...

I know a lot of people who would love to make a cake like this since they are big fans of UofK.

Ok, I have to know, how much of Star Trek have you seen? My husband and I started the original series about 3 years ago and we just started the last season of Voyager this week. We already watched Enterprise with Capt. Archer somewhere in the middle of all that. I love being able to catch onto all your Star Trek jokes!

Aspiring Ebert said...

This made my day! I'm a Kentucky girl, but I hate the Wildcats with a fiery passion. I see the horribly mutated cat as commentary on what the team has been ever since Rick Pitino left like 10 years ago.

This wreck is also making me seriously reconsider my plans for a Florida Gators birthday cake this year...

Well, I'd give them points for the attempt, at least. However, it's definately wrecktastic!

Redd said...

One would think, that in a world of plastic flotsam, the decorator (or orderer) could have come up with a better soulution than a cupcake-cake. I mean, a simple google search came up with this Sure, I'm not entirely sure what they are, but hey, they're edible AND kosher.

Fizzgig said...

I would totally buy this CCC if I saw it in the store. I know that it's a horrendous representation of the U of Kentucky logo, but as a colorful and almost abstract image of a cat made out of cupcakes, I love it! :) Now if this logo was on a regular sheet cake, I don't know if it would be as awesomely abstract (too bad they weren't going for abstract)!

Bree said...

Woooww....can no one make a good CCC? It's seems to be kind of impossible.

Plus...kitty's a little lopsided. Not just the 6 claws on one paw...but there are only 3 on the other!

And the face...no words can describe the horror. (Maybe the CCC knew how terrible it looked and that's why the face is contorted into a scream of terror?)

Suzanne Dargie said...

OMG! That is just pathetic! They couldn't even get the letters right.

twinklescrapbooks said...

Best.wreck.ever.

Nat said...

I think this is the definitive anti-CCC cake. This ought to be a lesson to the world.

joyce said...

Poor Key---did you figure it out yet? CCC stands for cup cake cake===cup cakes arranged into a shape and then iced as a cake. Lazy folks think it is great because you don't have to have a knife to cut the cake.

and WV means word verification as in my word is phypey, which sounds like a Chinese food dish.

Welcome to cake wrecks. The best sight for a good laugh. (except on Sundays where we snort quietly at true "beauty" and "art" and "culture" even though last Sunday's needed to be played around Halloween, in my opinion)

We darn near woke up the baby. That is a horrifyingly bad CCC. I'm going to refer back to this one whenever I need a good laugh. I feel like they could NOT have been serious? Right??

Aww shucks, someone beat me to the six claws. That's my favorite too.

OMG--I stayed up until 1 AM last night laughing at THIS--and here I am again, at WORK, showing it to my friend and peeing myself all over again! Headless blue Gumby attacks! Oh, it's too good! Thanks for the best laugh I've had in years--I'm a fan!

So they grabbed this guy off the the street, you know, the one that lives under the bridge at the end of the street, and said, "Hey fella, can you draw?". He said he could and the rest is history. Bet you he is the ghost tech-dude now too.

To all of those wondering why anyone would order a CCC of the UK logo, I'd lay dollars to donuts no one did order it.

You have to understand: the entire city of Lexington is totally obsessed with UK. Without UK, Lexington is basically a horse farm. The cement mixers running around town have the logo on them. Rick Pitino is still not allowed past Shelby County because he had the unmitigated gall to leave and then *gasp* *horrors* became the coach at the in-state rival, University of Louisville, up the road. Every grocery store in Lexington will always have blue and white cupcakes and cookies--every day. So this would have just been in the display case, like normal places would have a CCC of flowers or rainbows or whatever. Stop hating on the buyer because clearly they bought this monstrosity just to make our day.

I think the only folks who can truly understand how obsessed Lexington is with UK are the folks that live in Durham, because those Dukers are much the same.

Oh, and Go Cats! (I don't live in Lexington, but I have...)
