Freud Would Be Proud

Monday, July 27, 2009

If it's the thought that counts, then some of these bakers may need a cold shower.

How are you with word searches, Rose A.?

(Copycat Wreckplicas to hit bridal showers everywhere in 3...2...1...)


For this next one the birthday girl was turning 26, so Esther S. ordered a cake that said "The Big Two-Six". Instead they got...

'Course, the best part is that the decorator felt a clown was the most appropriate decoration.


This next one is more of a stretch if you're looking for something suggestive:

...but the contrast between "Welcome Home" and "Well, come home" is too good to pass up.

And finally, the piece de resistance:

Oh yes, they did.

Mai An, you're right: that is one epic first-year anniversary cake. Wowza.

Plastic clown head + icing clown body = creepy nightmare cake clown. And the fact that the cake has the "s" word on it. Yikes. Worst nightmares I'll ever have.

What are those blue and yellow flowers made of????

Alix said...

Word Search! LOLOLOL!

How could anyone miss that one? I mean, maybe if you didn't have a completely messed up dirty mind, but no one reading Cake Wrecks would qualify.

Kristina said...

"To the fist of many to come"

Hmmmmm.

Etiquette Bitch said...

okay, call me a cynical fan, but something tells me that CWs 1 and 2 were intentional...at least cw2.

Judy said...

Okay, the words "the big 2 sex" just made that terribly badly piped clown look extra creepy.

knitwit said...

Oh, MAN! That last one would've been the perfect accompaniment to the do-it-yourself will kit I gave my husband on our first anniversary...

Hannah said...

Off topic:

I've heard that at the Johnson County Fair in Iowa today, there is in fact an "ugly cake contest". Entries must be submitted by 10am today, so a bit too late to contribute, but if any wreckporters are in town, this sounds like the sort of event that needs coverage! I'm out of town this week, unfortunately, so I can't go. I also wonder how many entries will have some Cake Wrecks inspiration...

Italo said...

ahahahahah the happenis! ahahahah

Anonymous said...

Um....wow. I'm actually inspired to order cakes with subliminal messages in them now. I am so ordering a "happeniss" cake for my friend's bachelorette party!

ummpumpkinseed said...

Wow, I actually did not get the first cake till I read someone's comment...wow.....LOL!

kittykill said...

The first cake had me laughing so hard this morning! Thanks for making my day!

Flartus said...

Jen, some days all I can say is, "Thank you."

These are classic adult wrecks. So glad you're out there working hard to gather these together for us!

Happeniss, indeed. hee hee hee...

Nathan said...

I like the random border around the "Well Come Home" cake. It's like it's trying to be artistic but ends up just looking silly.

Yota Armai said...

I had to read that first one a few times before I found the word in question. Thanks for my monday morning laugh :)

Amy said...

Naughty cake wrecks!

Duck said...

With the "big two sex" I think it's a pronunciation thing. The word "six" as pronounced in some parts of California sounds like "sex" in most other parts of the county. It's just like the "don't be a betch" imitation of a California girl saying "bitch".

... which doesn't take anything away from the awesome wreckitude.

Mich said...

have you heard of "divorce cakes"? i just read about them today on someone elses blog.

http://iteachkdg.blogspot.com/2009/07/email-of-day_27.html

ps - i read your blog all the time and LOOOOOOVE it! keep the wrecks coming!

Nezzy said...

First time visit to your blog. It gave me a hoot and a big belly laugh! I decorate cakes for fun and personal events. The Forth of July cake always gets adorned with sparklers and torched as the kids sing Happy Birthday to America. My son and I discussed maybe making a fake cake next year to blow up.Could be a real party shocker. Have a fun day.

marybindc said...

It's such a shame to see cakes like the last one, or that "Luck Good" cake, that are really nice looking cakes that are ruined by some dumbass person that wrote the inscription. (inscription? is that what it would be called?)

Well, I'll bet Megan enjoys the "the happenis". Not so sure about Rob, though.
Maybe he can be the "Big 2 Sex".

Melinda said...

Ahhh...the awkward lies that happen when the kids hear me laughing at inappropriate wrecks. Great job, Jen!

jengersnap said...

The last...wow.
Let's get it on baby.
Sigh.

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Laughing uncontrollably on the last one. Hee, hee, ha, ha, ho, ho.... I hope "the fist" is the sanctioned gift for an anniversary I've already past.

Glory von Hathor said...

Was that last cake for Norman Lamont?

Dreamer said...

I think my head exploded on that last one.

Kelly said...

Did you notice that Happeniss is spelled wrong on the first cake? Just making sure.

KT

Love your blog!

Stephanie said...

Oh wow, can anyone say "awkward"?

msyendor said...

WV: Ranshes -- what you get after having a couple of clowns

Ew.

Emily said...

At first glance, the "Well Come Home" cake looks like "Hell Come Home." Which is also oddly appropriate, I think.

Nichole Loves Cake said...

Dear god, these made my head hurt in their stupidness.

S3XinthePantry said...

Now, I'm hungry (for more than cake!)

Becky said...

Hahahahaha I cannot stop laughing about "the big 2 SEX." Hilarious.

Michelle said...

What may perhaps cement my heterosexuality forever:

You can't spell happiness without "penis," and you can't spell over-reacting without "ovary."

OK, maybe you can, but you definitely can't SAY those words without them... :D

StuffCooksWant said...

The BIG 2 SEX... just what every girl wants on her bday cake. Special special with the creepy clown.

G.H. said...

haha! Love it..happenis.

At least the last one has pretty flowers...

Scritzy said...

Oh gad ... sex and clowns.

Welcome to my nightmares.

*shudder*

Word verification: minedid. I'm not even going to go there.

Fluffy Cow said...

Dang.

Calantha said...

@marybindc: I think the correct word would be "wreckscription."

wv: renesse - I would be renesse if I didn't admit that these cakes made me want to scrub the decorators' brains with soap.

Mandy said...

"Apenis is hard to find!"

C'mon, somebody tell me you remember that classic line spoken by Lea Thompson in the movie "The Beverly Hillbillies"?

The "Big 2 Sex" cake had me laughing so hard, tears were coming out of my eyes!

WV: orrigh - What's that? It's spelled "Happiness", not "Happeniss"? Orrigh!

Bri said...

That clown cake, and many others like it on the site (like the stump cake with the cardboard rounds still in it) have made me realize how many "professional decorators" are just people who took a Wilton course or two at their local Jo-Ann. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with Wilton, and there's DEFINITELY nothing wrong with being self-taught, but if you're still at the stage where you're putting clowns on everything you can get your hands on you might want to test out some new techniques before you start charging people money.

wv: dissist - You there with the piping bag and the clown head! Cease and dissist!

Happeniss...like the joke about the guy with the French accent?

Hyena Overlord said...

fist, showers, sex, peniss and plastic clowns? WTF?


wv: stingle...well what do you expect to have when you play with all of the above.

sendingtheclowns said...

La de da de daaa ...strolling casually through the bakery department...
Suddenly--AAIIEEAA!! Someone has shot the clown!! A bad person (albeit one with good taste) has splattered his colorful frosting brains all over the inside of the cake box!!!!
Call an ambulance! Call the cops! At least call the janitor!
And FINGERPRINT those suspects there (with their hands on the box)! Nobody leaves this room!
~~~~~~~~~~~
I actually think, though, that the inscription was SUPPOSED to read, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BIG 2 SEXY"...as in (HIT IT, boys!) "I'M... too SEXY for my shirt, too sexy for your PARTY, too sexy for this CAKE..."

Anonymous said...

"To the fist of many to come"

I thought the traditional first-year gift was paper? Wow, times change . . .

Peachkins said...

I really hope the 2-Sex cake was an intentional wreck. I think the clown on it bothers me more than the inscription.

Serena said...

The Big 2-Sex...still technically true in Latin!

Rose A. said...

I submitted the "happeniss" cake! I'm so excited to see it -- I kind of forgot about it. The best part about this cake was that my Girl Scout troop was having a shower for the other leader. One of the girls (13 at the time) bought the cake, and told the decorator right away about the misspelling. The decorator basically told her she was a stupid kid and to go away -- of course it was spelled correctly! I'm a teacher, so naturally I brought the picture into work to show everyone...which is when the school nurse (of course!) pointed out the subliminal message and we all had a good laugh.

Cellar Door said...

Sex=Six in Swedish. Swedish baker, maybe? Very funny.

Jodi said...

The fist anniversary cake was laugh out loud funny. Linked the heck out of you at The Drunch. Love your site.

Anonymous said...

I'm just glad that there aren't any graphics with literal interpretations of the cakes' messages...

Judy said...

@ sending the clowns.

Hee hee hee hee ha ha ha ha ho ho whoooooooo hee hee hee ah ah okay stop, I've got a stitch hee hee hee ha ha ha wheeeeeee! okay breathe breathe, okay...okay... heeee hee heee heee...(wiping tears).

Now you just stop that!!!!

I won't be able to get that song out of my head for the rest of the day. XD

Rachel said...

Well...sex is latin for 6, if that counts for anything, haha.

Rory said...
"What are those blue and yellow flowers made of????"
*****
Well, hmmm...they COULD be plastic barrettes from some Dollar store, with the hair-fastener part either removed or stuck into the cake. Lovely, and shiny, aren't they?
=^>.<^=

Calli Arcale said...

Well come, eh? Actually, that reminds me of the final episode of the Prisoner, the utterly inscrutable "Fall Out". The phrase "WELL COME" was displayed where you'd expect to see "WELCOME", and it was very much deliberate, all part of the creepy, Orwellian atmosphere of the place.

But somehow I don't think an obscure 60s Brit TV reference was what the Wreckerator was going for.

codeman38 said...

Perhaps it's my inner Southerner, but I momentarily misread the "Well Come Home" cake as "Y'all Come Home". (Which, honestly, would be quite an amusing cake in itself.)

normadesmond said...

The Showers of "Happiness" Cake? Reminds me of the joke....old jewish couple. man walking in from getting mail, muttering, "sick, disgusting..." wife says, "what?" he says, "it's a postcard from the kids, on their honeymoon & it says, SUCH A PENIS! this is disgusting, how could they write such a thing?" wife grabs the card from him, reads it and says, "it says SUCH HAPPINESS".

Jordan R. said...

I could've sworn that the "Well Come Home" cake said "Well Come Homo".

Anonymous said...

Oh God. . .I've just inhaled Wasabi peas, and it doesn't matter, I still can't stop laughing.

Well, come home. The fist of many to come is there with happenis.

I'm going to be laughing my way to sleep tonight.

Miranda said...

F'reals! Who thought sex and clowns were a good combination? It's enough to make a girl consider celibacy!

I said "consider," not "practice." :P

I prefer my showers with hot water and soap...and my anniversaries with romance, not pain!

Makes ya wonder what these wreckorators do when they're not at work.

Blondie said...

Not only is it "Happeniss" ...


It's SHOWERS of Happeniss!!!



I'm sensing a Bachelorette theme:

"It's raining men ... hallelujah, it's raining men."

"To the fist of many to come"-- I don't get it. What am I missing?

In short. Take hetero sex as an example, sub man-bits for hand. Profit.

Rena said...

Omg, hilarious! My friends and I are the ones the got Esther S. the Big 2Sex cake for her birthday! She was our Biology teacher in 9th grade - the one who taught us the reproduction system! You could imagine how embarrassed we were when we gave her the cake, but it was too funny for anyone to care. I actually submitted my own pic of that cake a while back, but it wasn't as good of a shot. Wow. that brought back memories!

Esther S said...

What Rena says is true- I did not order the cake, but I was given the cake by my students- as far as I know, it was not an intentional mistake!

asnpcwiz said...

Hmmmm, I love "fist" cakes.

Lee said...

Okay full disclosure.... The Fist cake was mine. My hubby presented it to me for our first Anni and I about died laughing! I told him not to get any ideas... It was from a very reputable bakery in NYC, you'd think they could spell better! Btw Rory, the flowers were buttercream! It was a delicious fist cake though!

Anonymous said...

"The Big 2 Sex" cake must've been made by an Australian bakery for a New Zealander's 26th birthday, judging by the accent... ;P

Twlght said...

Okay, coming late to the postings, but I can't be the only one to notice/think this...

Look at the clown on the 'Big 2 Sex' cake. Looking? Okay, now, there's clown head, white clown top then... green bandanna with brown pigtails on either side, blue shirt and pink pants. No wonder the clown is so happy... It is the to sex. ;)
