Happy Birthday to Meeee!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

GUESS WHAT?!?


It's muh birfday.

Awwww yeeeeaaah.

Now, I could celebrate by taking a cruise:

(A really really short one.)

Or by getting myself a new pair of...shoes:


Or go the traditional route and just get schnockered on booze sprinkles:

(After which I will apparently choke on ribbon and die. Hm. Ok, maybe not.)

And yet, all of those options (particularly the last one) pale in comparison to how I'm going to celebrate my birthday. How's that, you ask? Well, allow me to tell you...in song.

Hit it, Bobby!

[cranking up Ghostbusters 2 soundtrack]

"Too hot to handle, to cold to hold,
my name is Jen Yates and it's my birthday, yo!
So I'm throwin' a party, virtually speaking,
And I've got amazing news so please keep reading.
Now pack up your group, get a grip, come equipped,
Go pre-order lots of my book and then split!"

[music screeching to a halt] Of course I mean "split" in the ice-cream-eating way, not the hike-taking way - but you knew that, right?

And did you catch the big shocking news*, or were my sweet rhymes too dazzling for you? (*Granted, it's not quite as shocking for you Twits, since I inadvertently leaked it last week...) Yep, that's right: Cake Wrecks the book is now available for pre-order! Can we take a moment to savor that bit of sweet insanity?

[savoring] Mmmm. Yeah. That's the stuff.

Now, since I know how absolutely terrible you must feel over not getting me a birthday present - or even a card! You bum! - may I suggest a way to alleviate that burden? Buy yourself a gift. The gift... [cuing Hallmark music] of laughter:

(NOTE: This is NOT the final cover. Check back at 12 pm EST to vote for the cover you like best!)

[announcer voice] Yes, that's right! You'll get this lovely 6x8 hardcover edition of Cake Wrecks, When Professional Cake Go Hilariously Wrong, with over 19o pages of new Wreckage, fan favorites, behind-the-scenes commentary from Jen, reader stories, cakey controversies, and much, much more, all for the low price of $12.99! What a deal!

Why pre-order today? I'll give you seven good reasons:

7. It costs a heckuva lot less than a CW t-shirt.
6. It makes me look good.
5. Buy one for all your friends, and your Christmas shopping is done.
4. You'll get the book automatically shipped to you as soon as it's released.
3. High volumes of pre-orders somehow factor in to the mysterious industry formula that lands titles on best-sellers lists. Is that a lofty goal? Sure it is. So loft with me, darlings.
2. Every single order will give me a personal warm fuzzy. And it's my birthday, so today's the best time to send me warm fuzzies.

And the number one reason to pre-order Cake Wrecks today? (drum-roll, please.)

1. The Carrot Jockeys command you!

Wrecky World Domination, here they come! ;)

You can order Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong from Barnes & Noble, Borders, or Amazon. (And as a bonus, both Barnes & Noble and Amazon are now offering impressive discounts off the cover price.) So what are you waiting for? Do it! Do it NOW!!

Cara said...

It's my birthday too!! It's my birthday too!! That is sooo hilarious. I logged on and saw the post title and was like? "How did she KNOW???"
Happy Birthday Jen. I hope your cake is a beautiful creation and NOT a wreck. have a lovely day!

Midway Records said...

Happy Birthday! Did I spell that right? Love your blog & I bet the book will be a big hit!

Alice said...

I have questions:
Why would you put a shipwreck on a cake? Just what is that guy doing to that womans chest? Why is the elephant hungover before the start of the party? Is it just me or are the wrecks getting worse?

laura said...

Happy birthday Jen! Congrats, Only I don't see what's wrong really with the first cruise one?

Tracy O said...

Oh, Happy Birthday Jen - and you gave us a gift! Thanks!! My vote would be for number 3 -but without the choking on the ribbon part - sprinkle drinks for everyone - on me!!

Dillypoo said...

Happy Birthday and congratulations! I pre-ordered two copies (so I don't have to share with my mother).

Carol said...

Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you get a LOT of pre-sales.....lol, (said as I meander my way over to Amazon)

Charlie said...

Happy Birthday! May your cake be non-wrecky.

Am I the only one who read that last line in a Zim voice?

Justina said...

Happy birthday! May your day be filled with fun, laughter, and cakes that don't look anything like the ones featured here.

Jamie said...

Happy Birthday! My birthday is coming up, and since my husband reads your blog (and has already bought me a t-shirt here), I'm pretty sure I know what my present will be. Yay!

Heidi said...

Happy birthday!!!

ck said...

it took me a minute to figure out the second one as I was taking your shoe comment literally. Why is she naked? Why aren't there any shoes? why does the shoe sales man lok like a dr? What the heck is on the table?

And as soon as all of the disparate elements came together and I realized the Shoesalesman/Doc was NOT handing her a box, but that was, in face, a censoring box and he was actually...well, we won't go into that...it all clicked together and I immediately had a "duh!" moment.

Of course! Why wouldn't I want a cake to celebrate my boob job? I'm actually surprised I can't go down to Publix to pick one up!


Happy B'Day, Jen!

Capability Bowes said...

So, I go into a bookshop and ask for your book, which presumably isnt on the shelves yet. They promise to hold one for me when it arrives in stock. This consitutes an "order", yes? So what exactly is a "pre-order" and how does this differ from an "order"?

I've long wanted to ask someone this - unfortunately every time I go into a bookshop and make the same enquiry all I get is blank looks, shrugged shoulders and "I dunno, do I?" from the person behind the till.

Christine said...

hapPy, Birhtday! Or perhaps Happy Balker Satherday? Hope you have fun. I think I'm going to order a book for my parents - they'll get a kick out of it.

As for the wrecks, that first one is clearly not a cruise ship, but a shampoo tanker that has ruptured.

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Happy "Birthdays" in red.

And at Amazon you can get your awesome book for just $10.39. This is one of those perfect what-do-you-get-the-person-who-has-everything kind of gift.

Cinzia said...

Happy Birthday Jenn!

I pre-ordered your book from Amazon! (So you're welcome lol)

Can't wait til October to read it!
:o)

trish-punch said...

Happy Birthday!

Your book gives me the perfect reason to use the Amazon gift certificate that I have. Congratulations!!

P.S. Thank you for all the laughs you have given me since I found your blog. The sprinkles are on me! (I mean...not *literally* on me...)

If my carrot jockey overlords command it, then it is not my place to deny them.

Also, a very happy birthday to you :)

Julie said...

Happy birthday! Mine was yesterday. That means we're practically twins. LOL

Vashti said...

that 1st one looks like my son took his toy boat out of the bath and dumped it on a cake......horrible!
Hope your bithday is way better than these cakes! I WILL get a book as soon as I find some one who will ship it to South Africa!

2slippers said...

Happy Birthday Mistress of Cake Wreckery! I are mah birfday too.

Hapy brithday too yoo,Jen! Thanks for all the laughs. I swear you make me laugh til I cry more often then my sister. (that would be quite a lot.)

Tracey said...

Happy Birthday! How is it that you only get one Birthday, but you give us all a Birthday EVERY day with all these hilarious wrecks?? That doesn't seem fair! ;P
Have a great day, ma'am!

Lani said...

Happy Birthday!! It's my husband's birthday too!

I just pre-ordered. MUST have the book, especially if 75% of the Wrecks have never been seen before!! When will it be published?

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday to you. Thanks for making every day seem like MY birthday....cuz you give me the gift of laughter on a daily basis via CakeWrecks. (and UnderNeat that, Jen). :-)

Thanks for bringing sunshine into my life so often. Hope all your wishes come true today & always.

Can't wait to see the book!

Kat said...

Happy Birthday!! I will admit, I am DYING to see what your birthday cake looks like. I can't decide if I hope it's outrageously gorgeous or fantastically wrecky. Either way, have a wonderful time!

Laura R said...

Happy birthday to you! May your cake be impeccable.

You know you're a Cake Wrecks reader when.....
you read the ad banner as "Learn How I Removed 10 Years of Sprinkles!"

Happy Birthday!

Michele said...

Happy Birthday Jen!

You make my day every morning when I get into work. In fact, my boss and I laughed until we cried the day we discovered your blog...Which brings me to a question. We are planning a conference for June 11-14 for our association. Our spouse event is an "Ace of Cakes" contest that we expect to have more wrecks than aces. We even went to the dollar store and bought all kinds of plastic flotsam for the occasion.
(Sadly, we found no naked mohawk babies.)

When will your book be available? I would love to purchase one so that we can give it to the "winner" of our Ace of Cakes contest.

Happy Birthday Jen! May you have much fun and delicious cake on your special day!

If I can find my Barnes & Noble gift card, I'm sure I could use that towards a pre-order. If not, I'll just have to wait. Looking forward to it!

Happy Birthday!

Mine isn't for another week.

Anonymous said...

I think cake #1 started out as a ugly purple dress torso cake. Then someone sat on it. The wreckorator had a cruise cake to make, so she/he drooled some blue icing down the side, threw a ship figure ans called it a day!

bassgirl said...

This is too wierd! It is my birthday, too. Lots of wonderful people born on this date. I think you should send us each a copy of your book as a birthday present. Happy Birthday Cara, Jen, Lani's husband, and me! :)

'Tis my birthday too. I check CW every morning before heading to work and was thinking, "She'll have a b-day cake just for MOI!" and chortling to myself in a non-psycho way (honest).

Lo & behold.. birthday stuff! See, now this blog is beyond fantastic.

Carly said...

I just pre-ordered 8 copies for Christmas presents! Happy Birthday, Jen!


wv therste: That elephant cake sure makes me therste for sprinkles!

Stephen of Olejnicak said...

Alright, fine. I ordered your darn book. I hope you spend your birthday knowing that I used my Amazon gift cards for your benefit. So what if your blog has brought me more laughter than any other blog combined. Now I'm out a whole lot of psuedo-money and it's YOUR fault.

Okay, I LOVE your site and so does everyone to whom I've introduced it. Keep up the good work, and sooner or later I'll remember to submit the cake my sister made for my brother last year.

Christa said...

My birthday is Thursday, and I know what I'll be getting for it...woohoo!

Moony said...

Happy Birthday!

But Jen... where is YOUR cake? I demand a picture of the hopefully non-wrecky cake you got!

Those cakes are just... shocking. Though the elephant was sort of cute, just not very... lively.

Happy Birthday!! I wandered over to Amazon and purchased your book. I also bought the complete series of Josie and the Pussycats on DVD and Ann Coulter's newest book - so your book will probably come up as suggestions in the oddest places. When I bought the book the "others who purchased this item also bought this" that showed up was a Harry Potter book.

Best wishes with the presales.

Happy b-day, Jen! May you outsell Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity combined!

And can I just say that I think the Titanic and boob cakes in the post are both well made and hi-larious, even if not necessarily in perfect taste? I say their originality trumps their tackiness, and declare both as Not Wrecks.

bassgirl said...

Other May 12th birthdays: Katharine Hepburn, Yogi Berra, Bert Bacharach, and George Carlin. Of course, the downside of this birthday, if you are a mom, is that the family combines it with a Mothers Day event and you don't get a birthday cake. I'm craving some serious chocolate fudge frosting!!

My initial thought upon seeing that first cake was that it was a reference to that Christmas Special of Doctor Who. The waterfall doesn't really fit, but there's a very astral vibe going on in the decoration. I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. :)

Second, sorry for being difficult but I don't like the three options. I do like the "... Suzanne ... Under Neat ..." cake. The babies are a tad too disturbing. A poorly written/spelled cake on the other hand.

Can't wait to see the book. Thinking of all the people I know who make cakes and would not be offended to receive this as a gift.

I've never commented before, but I thought that now would be an appropriate time to express my appreciation for this site. I check it every day (and it's thus left in the history of many a school computer), and it never fails to make me laugh, or grin at the very least. It's one of my favorite sites to show to other people, and I'd love to both own and gift the book.

I also find that my craving for icing-bedecked baked goods has greatly increased over the last six months.

May the inscription on your cake be spelled right, may your icing balloons never swim in a circle, and here's hoping it's not a CCC. (*Patooey*)

Becky B said...

okay, that boob job cake is spectacular. I keep stealing the wrecks I like and doing them myself...now if only I could find someone getting some work done...

Becky B said...

oh! did I miss the part that says it's your birthday? clearly! hope it was a great one!

It's my birthday too! That's weird. I was just wishing that you could've made mention to my birthday with a spectacularly bad wreck.

Ida said...

Napkin's Family said...

Happy Birthday to you and ME TOO!!! 1975

Thanks for all your 80s theme cake nostalgia.

Thanks for your blog, I know that I can always turn to you when I need a good laugh.

NYCGirl said...

It a gril! Uh, I mean, hope it was happy-- and that we'll get to see your cake!

Diane said...

I think I would chose the "I Want Sprinkles" cake, or one of the wedding cakes (the tartan plaid, or the Tiffany's boxes) as opposed to one of the others. Chewy and the doll don't look enough like cake, the Under Neat That cake takes too long to read and get the joke to catch a shopper's eye. I work in a bookstore, and I think that unless I featured any of those books in a staff pick display, they wouldn't sell well just from the cover.

Cris said...

Happy birthday! the first cake is just fine but the second cake is just too kinky (for adults only!)
and the third is just as cute as the 1st one..good luck on the book!

BJ said...

Happy birthday!

And that's what I was talking about in the book cover post! That cover is *perfect*.

It's the one I would vote for.

Sleepwalker said...

A belated Happy Birthday to you, and congratulations on the book. Not even going to try to come up with creative misspellings there--the accidental ones done in frosting are way funnier.

Wow, I've been following this blog for a year now. How time flies when you're having fun.

Jenna said...

Hey I kind of like the freaky cruise ship.

Laura said...

It's my birthday too! I heard only really awesome people are born on May 12th.

Stephanie said...

A day late, I know, but happy birthday! :) Hope it was a good one! :)

Tamar said...

It was also my birthday! Yay for May 12th-ers!!!

Linda B said...

Happy HAPPY birthday hugs from north of the border (that's Canada folks!)

PS. Your book will be a huge success! You'll have to pay someone to watch over Cake Wrecks while you are travelling around the world with CW-Fest 2009!
Here's to mega sprinkles today!!

Katie said...

Hope it was a great day! Although as a fan of the English language, I must say that there is a problem with the phrase "to cold to hold"...

Morgan said...

It was my birthday, too! I hope you had a great one, as your blog never ceases to brighten my day! Happy Birthday, Birthday Buddy!

Me said...

Well, I'll go ahead and order since the carrot jockeys are COMMANDING me to. Must listen to carrot jockeys. Must listen to carrot jockeys....

Happy belated birthday, and congrats on the book! I can't wait to get it!

Judy said...

My vote is the the "under Neat that cake" since it was the one that started it all.

zophtic said...

CrankyOtter said...

Happy birthday. I ordered 3 to get the free shipping. I figure, who won't want one for christmas?

Kate said...

How exciting! I feel compelled to point out that the book is also available through independent booksellers as well, via Indie Bound (http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780740785375).

jelloegg said...

Are the books being sold in Barnes 'n Nobles, not just online?

Koala Kiwi said...

Bev Sykes said...

Best part about the Amazon option for purchase is finding out that "Customers buy this book with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Jane Austen"

Nothing says "cake wrecks" like Zombie Jane Austen books.

Pam Bellemare said...

Happy birthday! And I'm with Tracy O: sprinkle drinks for everyone! A shout out to your blog and my newly purchased I WANT SPRINKLES t-shirt: http://betweenjobstheblog.blogspot.com/2009/05/jury-duty.html
