(Dr.) Horrible Sunday Sweets

Sunday, August 23, 2009

If you haven't watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog - or even know what it is yet - then this post is for you.

And if you *have* seen and love Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, then this post is really for you.

I was late in discovering Joss Whedon's internet gem, but within 5 minutes I was in love, and have been looking for an excuse to feature it here ever since. Fortunately, Pfoinkle of Hurry Up Cakes has provided me with several truly excellent excuses:

But I'm getting ahead of myself. First and foremost, you should know that Dr. Horrible is an award-winning musical film made exclusively for the Internet. It has a super catchy soundtrack, hilarious super-villain spoofs, and an unexpectedly sweet story. You can watch it for free online in three 14-minute segments, too. In fact... [furious clicking in the background] ...here, watch the first few minutes of this and just try not to get hooked:



[NOTE: Sorry, guys; I just learned that the above vid is only viewable here in the U.S. So if you're not in the U.S., you can either schedule a trip or buy the DVD on Amazon. (Go here to watch the trailer.)]

Ok
, enough intro. Back to the cake!

First up is the geekalicious goggle cake:

Below Dr. Horrible's signature goggles are the label and some schematics for his death ray. Turn the cake around, though, and you'll see...

...the Thoroughbred of Sin himself, Bad Horse!

Next we have Captain Hammer's cake:


Penny's frozen yogurt cake:

"What a crazy random happenstance!"

And lastly, a few mini cakes to represent Hammer's groupies and Bad Horse's chorus:

Plus, if you want to make one of these cakes yourself, Pfoinkle (Her real name? Discuss.) has provided extensive photo tutorials on her site here. Thanks, Pfoink!


Thanks to April P., who I think was the first to submit this.

Those are spectacularly awesome! Although I'd like a cake of the goggle-wearer...ok then, just the real him will do, lol.

Brittany said...

I love the Cowboy Cupcakes. Awesome!

Melinda said...

Forget the cake! Dang that Neil Patrick Harris is yummy! (I do love the cowboy hat cupcakes though, very well done.)

WakeGrace said...

oh my goodness. i about had a heart attack when i checked this morning!!! i absolutely LOVE dr. horrible and never even dreamed it could be in the sweets! BRILLIANT! in fact, i was humming along to one of the songs this morning as i got ready...hmmm "What a crazy random happenstance!"

Excellent... cool cakes and a happy reminder that I can sing-along while I do housework: *Laundry day

Not merely "an award-winning musical film" -- it won the 2009 Hugo Award for "Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form", beating episodes of Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, and Lost.

I LOVE Dr. Horrible. It was my Halloween costume last year! Granted, not one person knew who the heck I was, but *I* knew I was totally cool! :)

Zelda Zap said...

OMG so much Bad Horse goodness! Awesomely awesome! I love Dr. Horrible sweets!

Suburban Princess said...

This show it only available in the US :O( Oh well! The cakes are awesome!

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Never heard of this, but 7 minutes in, I'm hooked!!! Perfect timing, too. A hamstring injury has me down for the count, so I have plenty of time to watch. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Oh, and the cakes are adorable, too!

Rhonda said...

Isn't it lovely when two worlds collide -- cake and Dr. Horrible, for example? Two kinds of deliciousness.

Amanda said...

You just found Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog? Then you probably haven't heard Commentary: The Musical! yet either. That's right. The DVD commentary for Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog is a musical, and it is awesome.

Loving the cakes. Surprised it's taken this long for them to be done or spotted. :)

Jen, You rock. This entry rocked. Also the swedish chef entry rocked my world, as he is pretty much the best muppet ever. anyway, just a thanks for your never-ending entertainment and partial inspiration to start a blog of my own (www.fullcodeblue.blogspot.com) I mentioned you in the first entry.

Thanks again!

We were just listening to the Dr. Horrible soundtrack. (Our 3 y/o insists.) I checked for Sunday Sweets, and yay!

The Captain Hammer cake should have been pie. ;)

Guin said...

it's like we were separated at birth! LOL
I too discovered Dr. Horrible long after it's release but fell in love by word two of the dialogue.
Joss Whedon is a God that should be bowed down to.
Seeing one of my favorite creative forces mixed in with my favorite blog...what more could this geek ask for?
Thanks for the great post!!

Jennifer said...

Awesome cakes, wish I could watch the video. It pops up and says it cannot be played outside of the USA, so I guess we Canuks are out of luck.

Your site never fails to lift my mood. Keep up the great wrecks!

~M said...

Oh deliciousness. I do so love Joss, Dr. Horrible, and these cakes. And thanks, Amanda, for the Commentary! The Musical plug. Now I have "I'm better than Neil" stuck in my head, thanks to my deep and abiding love for Captain Hammer/Tightpants (see other Joss vehicles Serenity and Firefly), erm, I mean Nathan Fillion.

Fun post!

We cant see the internet movie in UK so Ill have to take your word for it, but the cakes look well made!

Julie said...

This post made my day! *Squee*!

Leesa said...

Hula isn't available outside of the US - can you post a link to the blog?

Though, having said that, maybe I should take the time to search for it...

Great cakes, even if I don't get the rest of it!

HuLu doesn't play in Canada,some readers will still be lost!

Jeanne said...

These cakes are awesome, but look like they were made out of play dough. I am really starting to hate fondant. Whatever happened to yummy old-fashioned buttercream?

Galadriel said...

But...but...it's a FREEZE ray, not a death ray!

TeDiouS said...

Ack! So disappointing that these cakes are so incredibly amazing...and yet they got the name of Dr.Horrible's device wrong! It was Freeze Ray. It's not a deathray (or an ice beam that's all Johnny Snow...)

StuffCooksWant said...

Doogie Howser rocks!! Love it and the cakes are awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Amanda said...

If you can't view Hulu, try youtube.com. If that doesn't work, Netflix has the DVD.

Maddy said...

Got to love Dr. Horrible. Love those cowboy hats too!
Cheers

Fluffy Cow said...

Thank you THANK YOU for introducing me to Dr. Horrible!!!! "Try not to get hooked" yeah, right... best 45 minutes in front of my computer!!!! (What should one expect from Joss Whedon?)

Oh and the cakes are darling!

Carole said...

This is awesome. We love Dr. Horrible. And in fact I just bought the DVD yesterday! So your post is well timed.

poet said...

I love Dr. Horrible!

When do we get some The Guild cakes?
http://www.watchtheguild.com/

(Felicia Day is sooo very awesome. I started watching The Guild a long time ago and that led me to Dr. Horrible. And even knowing about Ms. Day, I was late to watch! Silly me.)

Jamie said...

I absolutely love Dr. Horrible. Those are great. The geek in me is just screaming.

Heather said...

I just recently discovered Dr. Horrible, myself, and it's my current obsession.
These cakes are wonderful!

Meg said...

This is made of so much win! I love the frozen yogurt cake the most, though the goggles are freaking fantastic as well.

Erika said...

The frozen yogurt cake is my favorite. That looks delicious!

Megan said...

Love love love them! Thanks for featuring these - Joss Whedon's my idol, and I adore Dr. Horrible. :)

Area restriction on the video, cannot be viewed outside US :(((

Julia said...

My brother is OBSESSED with Dr. Horrible an nearly peed himself when I showed this to him.

My two very tiny criticisms:

1. I would totally make an arrow to the hammer that says "My Penis"
2. On Penny's cake, I want to include the keys to a shiny new Australia.

Karen said...

We've been introduced to the hammer. And that's not the hammer.

coeurdechoeur said...

The cakes are wonderful. It had been so long since I last watched Dr. Horrible, way back when it premiered. I'm glad that it's back on Hulu so I can watch it again.

Jimh. said...

OK, dang it, I am hooked. First Firefly, now Dr. Horrible, will Whedon ever get a good one on TV to stay?

dpotsy said...

Darn you and your luring me in with a video of Neil Patrick Harris! I had lots of cleaning to do today, but instead sat and was hypnotised by his yumminess!

Oh, and the cakes look delish as well! ;)

Kev said...

If you can't see it outside the US because it's on Hulu (I hate that too) Go and buy Dr. Horrible Act One from the iTunes store for a measly TWO DOLLARS.

You won't regret it. That'll be two dollars well spent, and then you can (and you WILL) buy the rest at your leisure, and the soundtrack, and the t-shirts...

Ney said...

Ahhh LOVE! :)

Erin said...

LOVE IT!!!!

"the hammer is my penis" one of my favorite lines in it

oh woe is me. Hulu says no Canadians allowed... damn licesnsing and copyright! )-: go find some proxy server and get in by the bak door to catch the "DL" as the 16 yr old off spring would say.

CAkes are cool even if I don't get the significance. WIKIPedia here I come for the DL

Typhoid Ashley said...

EEEE! You made my Sunday! I know what I want for my birthday cake now.

And please tell me you actually say "What a crazy random happenstance!" day to day.

Melissa said...

Fantastic job, but what they really should've done was set out a bowl of un-baked cake batter and say it represents Moist.

str4y said...

Awesomest awesome ever! Those goggles are amazing...and the frozen yogurt is adorable!

Camie said...

Dr. Horrible cakes! My rainy Sunday just improved exponentially.

Lady Rose said...

So, can we expect cakes from The Guild next? For those who don't know, The Guild is a web series written by and staring Felicia Day aka Penny in Dr. Horrible. They even have a shiny new music video co-written by Jed Whedon.

Bobman said...

To those outside of the US, the whole thing is available as a DVD, either on Netflix or if you want to really support it, on Amazon. Well worth your 12 bucks or whatever it costs.

And while the Freeze Ray is a major plot point, there IS a death ray at one point - towards the end, he has a "stun" ray that he puts a piece of tape over the word "stun" to say "death." It's what ... uhh.... he is using at the very end (almost typed a spoiler there!)

rjb said...

Between Dr. Who last week and Dr. Horrible this week, my little nerd heart is about to burst with joy.

And Galadriel and TeDiouS, it WAS a freeze ray but it is now a death ray, as evidenced by the black masking tape with silver sharpie clearly stating "DEATH." :-)

Melany said...

Thanks for sharing that link! Now my fiancee and I are hooked!

Anonymous said...

OH. MY. GROG.

I just saw the TITLE and flipped out with happiness. I was not disappointed! THANK YOU FOR GEEKDOM!!!

Alex said...

I did not realize that "Hurry Up the Cakes" was such a well-known internet meme. (For those that don't know, it's a classic Engrish T-shirt found in Japan: http://www.engrish.com/2005/05/hurry-it-up/ )

Stacy McKenna said...

My friend owns the house where they filmed Dr. Horrible's lair. There was no set dressing, that's just what his house looks like every day, thanks to it being an episode of "Monster House" a couple years prior (though the Big Chair was a separate acquisition, and really quite the most comfy spot to sit). He can be seen dressed as the purple pimp at the end of the film. He (and most of his friends) are huge Whedon fans, so we're all looking forward to the possibility of a sequel, though as long as Whedon's got Dollhouse absorbing his attention, he just doesn't really have time...

Erin said...

Silly Dr. Horrible fans! Of course his device was the Freeze Ray-- at first! But by the end of the show he had placed the tape saying "Death" over the original name, because he had transformed the Freeze Ray into the Death Ray to try to complete his task and get into the ELE. So the maker has this just right, by making it look like tape is covering part of the title!

Wonderful cakes! Love this show so much! I agree with the others-- if you don't live in the US, there are still other ways of seeing this. iTunes, the DVD, I'm sure there are some places around the internet you can see it for free.... do it!

Anonymous said...

I saw these cakes a couple of days ago on Pfoinkle's site because I was looking for items for my upcoming 30th birthday party, which I've pretty much decided to make Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog themed. I am THRILLED you posted these, as I wasn't sure if I should submit them to you.

Wow, what a coincidence!

I love it!

Don't get it, can't watch the videos. Cake wreck fail. :(

Dear Joss Whedon: Please give us more of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog! Is it bad that I'm rooting for Dr. Horrible? I want to know what happens to him now that he's part of the Evil League. I will admit, however, that I adore Nathon Fillion (he's so much fun in the series Castle).

gigi said...

Perfect, perfect cakes. More people need to discover Dr. Horrible.

Buy the DVD;the extras are hilarious!

Especially the auditions for the Evil League of Evil (is that the right name - I'm relying on my memory here).

;-)

Jules said...

*sings* "[These] are perfect for me... so they say, I guess [they're] pretty okay."

They're awesome! And if you don't know Dr. Horrible, I agree with Jen... watch it. now. without delay.

WV: shifili. Get off your shifili and go find Dr Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog!

Maaike said...

Perhaps a thought to mention that the Dr. Horrible dvd is encoded Region 0, which means Region free, and can be watched on any dvd player.

Unlike regular American Region 1 dvds, which most people outside the US are just as unable to watch as Hulu content.

hbpen said...

I twittered this to you a while back. Glad it showed up on your blog!! :)

Kimberworld said...

Yay!! Dr. Horrible cakes! Bad Horse would be pleased. :)

I go to a geek fest every year called DragonCon, and not only am I doing a female version of Captain Hammer, but we're also going for the Guinness World Record for "Thriller" dancers. Felicia Day will be at the con, and I'm hoping to get her to dance with us.

Amazing cakes + Dr. Horrible? I think I've died and gone to heaven.

alexandra said...

I LOVE Dr. Horrible! I saw that it was on DVD the other day and I was so tempted to buy it.
The cakes are great- I think I like..all of them best.

shadowmaat said...

Silly Goggleheads! The good- I mean, evil- Doctor had TWO guns in the finale, remember? The Freeze Ray was meant to hold Hammerhead in place while the Death Ray (which was modified from his Stun Ray, hence the duct tape name correction) was meant to kill him. The delicious-looking Gogglecake is correct. And yes, I know I'm a huge f'ing nerd for knowing all that. LOL!

Wish I had mad cake-making skillz so I could make these myself, but I'll have to settle for drooling over them here, much as I drool over Dr. Horrible himself. *sigh*

Seriously just finished watching Dr. H. for the third time (today). LOVE the music.
First thing I did was tweet this entry for my fellow Dr. H lovers! LMAO about the pie comment! Indeed it should have been.

And my 3 y/o (well, when he was 3--he is 4 now) is adorable singing Bad Horse!

Ivyfree said...

I've tried to watch Dr Horrible before, and this time I made it 8 minutes in before I decided it wasn't worth it. How long is a "few minutes" for Cake Wrecks? Because I would definitely categorize "a few" as "less than ten." I mean, I gave it an honest shot.

NPH 4EVA! In cake form? I just passed out.

Having a most squeeful day in the Pfoinkle household -- I can't imagine a greater cakey honor.

Thanks to all the commenters -- you are responsible for many of the squees.

And thanks to the folks who pointed out that the freeze ray was indeed turned into a death ray. I <3 all of you the mostest.

To "poet" -- The Guild cakes have been mulled over for some time, I just haven't sussed out something worthy.

Maybe I should get working on that. :D

Laura said...

I was so happy when I saw your Dr. Who Sunday Sweets feature. "What could be better than Dr. Who?" I thought.

Ha! I guess you showed me! Wait . . .

I first watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog with my 7-year old son. We regularly put it on to sing along with (ah ha ha) while we do chores. My son's favorite song (which he'll randomly burst out singing) is, "A man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do . . ."

And, btw, the DVD (which apparently has extras, deleted scenes and interviews) is available via Netflix. It is in my queue.

Beth said...

I always suspected you were an awesome person, and this posts confirms it. Yay for Dr.Horrible cakes!

I love the whiteboard equation at the bottom of the goggle cake. Too awesome.

I was laughing my head off just as I was reading that! See, I have my iPod on set to that soundtrack even before I saw the post!

My best friend showed me it on her laptop about two days after it first came out, and I'm like:
"Oh my God! It's an evil musical!" *Laughs* Has anyone seen Commentary! the Musical yet? It's on the DVD.


Bad Horse? The Thoroughbred of Sin?

I meant... Gandhi...

fransmomma said...

watched the whole thing. loved the music!! i didnt get the ending though....

BobbleheadBen said...

Dr. Horrible had a freeze ray. Which he used to freeze Captian Hammer in place, but he also had a death ray that he was attempting to use on him as well, until of course the freeze ray malfunctioned, Captain Hammer punched Dr. Horrible halfway across the room and took the death ray, attempted to shoot Dr. Horrible and it exploded causing fragments to fly, and strike Penny. Enough of that though. I've seen it a couple dozen times :)Just thought I'd clarify some points for those who were confused by the freeze ray/death ray debacle. Buy the dvd peeps.

Amazing cakes. Although on one of the Captain Hammer cakes you have to add "The hammer is my..."

BTW they are currently working on writing a 2nd Dr. Horrible project. Release date TBD.

I meant Gandhi.

Ophelia said...

I hope people will buy the DVD even if they can see it and hear the commentary on the intarwebz. DVD so definitely worth buying :)

But I have to wonder about the groupies, who converted to Dr. Horrible groupies after his admission to the ELE. Why aren't there any cakes representing them wearing his logo? :P

Also, girls in love with NPH, you do know he prefers the boys, yes? So having him wouldn't do y'all any good :)

These are such awesome cakes! And perfectly fitting for an awesome piece of web genious.

For those that own the awesomeness that is Dr. Horrible on DVD, Google for easter eggs. They're almost as good as the blog.

I get to meet Felicia Day in ten days!! You all should check out her web series "The Guild". She and the cast made a music video for a song called "Do You Want to Date My Avatar" and I highly recommend it. Head over to youtube.com for episodes and the music video.

I love that you've discovered Dr. Horrible and spread the word! I twittered this cake months ago, but figured you'd be deluged with submissions of it. I echo the previous comments about The Guild (watchtheguild.com) - It's a web series by Felicia Day (Penny). They just released a music video, though you may need to be a gamer to get all the jokes in it. ;-)

Tanya Michaels said...

Clearly the makers of those cakes hold PhDs in horribleness.

Melinda said...

My daughter and I are regular Horrible-philes (okay, so we're irregular) and I introduced Cake Wrecks to her some time ago--our favorite is still the turkey with the smile on his belly. She must have missed this post, or she would have told me about it. She and I regularly quote both DH and CtM to each other, and listen to the songs from both on an almost-daily basis. I adore the cupcakes--oh, I love it all!

I was one of the people who'd never heard of Dr Horrible before seeing this.

I managed to locate the videos on Youtube and am now thoroughly hooked. And related links from those introduced me to Felcia Day's "The Guild" videos as well, which as a long time player of MMOs I enjoy greatly, so thank you many times for this delicious and addicting post.

Oh, goodness, look at my wrist - I gootta go!

I love Dr. Horrible! Those cakes are awesome!!!! Maybe next year for my birthday, I should have a Dr. Horrible cake.

Just an FYI for anyone wanting to catch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog who isn't in the US, you can find it on YouTube is pretty decent quality. Watching it that way you end up viewing 6 7minute sections.

I <3 Joss Wedon!!!

Okay, yeah, and as cheezy as I am I love the subtle tribute in the musical (his pants) and of the "Captain Hammer" cake being brown! Gotta love Joss Whedon and his little hints. (Like the model of Serenity hanging behind Dr. Horrible in his lab) *just grins*

Netflix has Dr. Horrible! I'm so glad that this blog introduced me to it. I never would have heard of it otherwise, and it's fabulous.

SO so so good! You know if you buy the DVD, you get Commentary! The Musical!

And now I want a cake that just says "We do the weird stuff!"

Sami said...

HOLY FLIP I LOVE IT! I'm so glad I got to see these! I freakin LOVE that musical!
Peace! ...But not literally...

Laura said...

Okay, I don't know how I missed this post but I have to comment now! This is one of my favorite geek things EVER. Incidentally, you can now watch it on netflix instant view if you have it (for any other weirdos that stalk blogs written a year ago). AND, have we seen and discussed Felicia Day's web series, The Guild? Also, great.. but back to Dr. Horrible...

These cakes are amazing! I love, love, LOVE the cupcakes for Captain Hammer's groupies (We do the weird stuff) and Bad Horse's chorus (He'll make you his mare).

Okay, I'll stop singing... and post bumping...

squeeeeeeeeee
