Here comes the bri...AAAAUUGGHHH!!!

Friday, August 7, 2009

Brides these days. [shaking head] When the big day arrives, some of them can reeeally lose their heads, you know?

That's the wedding cake.


Uh, maybe I should give you a moment.


[whistling]



All better? Have all your co-workers/family members gathered around the screen in response to your shrieks? Good. 'Cuz I want to talk about the consultation that resulted in this cake. Do you suppose it went something like this?

Bride: I want my wedding cake to look like my dress.

Baker: Sure, no problem. You want it on a dress form?

Bride: [scoffing] Uh, no-oo! It has to be on a body. MY body.

Baker: Wait, you want a full cake statue of yourself? Like this? [shows photo of infamous bride cake]

Bride: Ew, no! Who'd want to eat my head or arms? That's gross.

Baker: [relieved] Oh, good, 'cuz for a second there...

Bride: So just leave my head and arms off.


Here's another view: The limbless bride surveying her domain.

As you can see, the bride (the headed one, I mean) thought it would be cute to put her veil on the neck stump after the ceremony. Which certainly adds...well, a veil to the neck stump.

But you know what my favorite part is? Go on, guess.

No, not that. Or that. Hah! Good point, but no. Look, I'll just tell you, shall I?

Ok, it's this: the shoulder stumpies look a lot like outstretched, plucked chicken wings to me. Here, look at the first photo again and tell me you don't see a plucked headless chicken in a dress trying to flap off to freedom:

Flap flap flap.

You see it, don't you?
And if not, rest assured Headless Plucked Chicken Bride will be seeing YOU - in your dreams. Mwuh-ha-ha-haaa!


Sleep tight, Anony M.

Meg said...

oh dear, that's awful.... now I'm wondering, was the bride actually happy with this cake?

Diana said...

Really, you must start putting warning labels on these: "Swallow your coffee and put down the cup before attempting to read the following post" - it really would save on monitor mop-up

Beth said...

Does it even look like her dress? It looks all crumply and weird. she should have posed next to it so I can see.

Angie said...

Eating the head & arms would have been gross, but I wonder how many were demanding boob pieces???

Yikes. I really can't believe someone would order that on purpose, for a real wedding... I got the meaning behind the bride statue cake (if only the tradition of it), but this one? Yikes.

drgns4vr said...

I took out my rant about the decline and fall of cakey civilization here--you can insert your own if you wish. Actually, the bakery did a great job--the cake looked nicely made, but the concept...

WF Phire. We need to empty the room, but don't yell phire. Just set out the headless, armless bride cake.

tencats said...

It's like the waist-down-only ballerinas yesterday. Or the baby legs and diaper with no apparent head. Or the hand with the ring on the engagement cake. People!?!! No body parts!!!! We don't want to think about eating flesh!

The Minears said...

I really hope that the bride asked for a cake that looked like her dress and meant that she wanted the cake layers decorated with ruffles/beadwork/whatever and not the headless, armless wonder that she got. Kind of like the cake competition in Oklahoma that a few years ago had the theme of wedding dresses. Or maybe she was just crazy and liked the idea of a headless, armless wonder, your site has proven time and time again that people have questionable taste.

Beth said...

Let me get this straight: After the veil sat on top of presumably hair-product covered hair, presumably attached to a bride who may or may not have been sweating from nerves, the bride affixed said veil to a product which her guests were to eat?

I see nothing wrong with that.

(I will give her credit in that it seems she didn't actually jab the combs into the cake. It's really not as bad as I make it sound.)

What I'm wondering is:

Did the bride and cake dress to match? Or did the bride quickly change once she saw the cake?

Not only is the cake totally ridiculous and hideous, I can't stop thinking about the fact that the veil that was on her HEAD is now resting on that cake....the cake that people are supposed to eat! NO WAY!! Every single bit of this cake idea is GROSS!

Taylor, what do you call a headless, legless guy hanging on a wall? Art. Laying on the floor? Matt.

Heads are for chumps. The bride's just showing how enlightened she is by preparing us for the day we'll all be cool headless people.

I can only hope it was ordered by a bride that LOVES this site, and her whole family gathers round the phone every morning on a conference call to see the post of the day. So when it came time to order a wedding cake, the only logical answer was this....this thing, and they are all in on the joke and no one was traumitized. I hope.

Poor Great Aunt Gertrude has no phone or computer and they forgot to let her in on this little joke, she will never be the same.

So, the groom cake no doubt had him all in black and carrying a giant scythe, right?

Ophelia said...

::sigh::

I know that it's the bride's decision. I know that we all have different tastes. There are, however, ways and means of designing a "unique" wedding cake without resorting to attempts at re-creating living beings (or, heaven forbid, using cheese). A good cake baker/decorator will sit down with you and help you design something nice.

Not a peach-coloured, wrinkly torso.

It's not pretty, and everyone will be hooting about it afterward.

Yargh.

I don't think this is really a wreck, we just aren't intelligent enough here on Earth to understand alien cultures ... obviously that's the bride in a Dalek wedding :-)

Christa said...

Is the bride on the "healthy" side? Becasue that cake looks awfully thick.
Like Meg I too wonder did she really like the cake...because I can see a hint of pride in these pictures.

Amber said...

so... I noticed the cake was on a half round cake board. Was this just another bad choice or is there an armless, headless groom cake to match on the other half circle?

Maybe it was just the lack of arms and a head, but the proportions on the wreck don't seem quite right either, or maybe the bride really is shaped like a wardrobe.

Anonymous said...

I do see the chicken wings flapping. Though I thought it looked more like the headless, armless corpse of a little person in a wedding gown.

Is that weird?

How much you want to bet she'll have the belly cake for her baby shower?

Imma hafta flip a coin to decide which of these comments made me spit out more coffee.

You are still the Queen, madame.

Kristie said...

OMG! I am just at a loss for words. Jen's commentary made me also imagine various conversations of the dear bride's loved ones trying to talk her out of such a cake...

I also have to commend all of the people who have previously commented on keeping their comments clean because many R rated comments certainly came to my mind... I am a gen Xer who grew up on John Hughes movies (RIP John...) with some beloved R rated humor. This cake would've fit in nicely in the wedding scene of 16 Candles with the self absorbed bride...

Compliments to Jen for taking the pg route with this one... athough she could've entertained us with an Amber sequal... hmmm now there's an idea, Jen...

WV = rigra. Sorry all I can relate it to is Viagra... anyone else?? :)

The dress part is well made and rather pretty. Too bad the top is reminiscent of poultry.

Who would want to eat the cake after she put her veil (yeah the one from her HEAD) on it? ewww gross. I flip out if there's a hair in my food. I wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole.

Oh, Jen...this is just delish!

From the back view, it appears to be a headless, armless, corpulent 'little person' bride.

What a fabulous treat for the guests!

Julie said...

Okie dokie.... My first thought before I got all the way through was what did they put on the turkey?

And after the cake is cut, the awkward conversation overheard at the next table is:

I got an armpit; you got a boob... Can we trade?

Deray said...

*head desk* I would have liked to hear what the guests said about the cake, jajajaja

Poor thing probably thought this was the height of fashion and good taste. I wonder what the headless groom's cake looked like.

Where are the photos of them eating the cake - I'd love to see the groom smashing boob into his new wife's face! Haha.

This is pretty disturbing, though, I don't want a torso modeled after myself at my wedding...

The Little Red Hen said...

Perhaps peach fondant should just be outlawed to prevent fleshy numbers like these.

Anonymous said...

AGREED that is is absolutely the height of disgustingness that she put her hair ornaments on the cake after they'd been on her head. yuuuuck.

Maybe it was never meant to be eaten...just a beautifully decorated convenient place to stow random accessories, yah know, maybe the bride could tuck her underarm dress shields into it, too, once the nerve-wracking ceremony was over. eeee

HorribleLicensePlates said...

It's amazing they added the veil with out a head to put it on.

foobella said...

at the risk of repeating a comment that has yet to be approved, doesn't it look like her ruffles fell down in the lower front of her dress?

What is the fascination with dress cakes? It usually ends up looking like a regular cake with horrible fondant draping. I don't get it.

I am totally freaking out about all the details of my impending wedding today - and this just really gave me some perspective! In the best and worst possible ways...the plucked chicken flapping for freedom?? Tears in my eyes I'm laughing so hard! Thanks for this one - I needed it!

The dress itself isn't bad. The choice to put it on a headless, wingless chicken was.

Janelle said...

Oh, I love this! I keep thinking, "Off with her head!" and then for good measure, "and her arms!" Some brides would make people want to do that, really.

Meg said...

Wow...just...wow...

Have you noticed that in the pictures where you can see the guests that everyone is standing WAAAAAAAAAY back from this...thing?!! They're probably afraid the bride has a hole under the table and is going to pop up and stick her head and arms through the proper spots... (shudder) Or that the wingless chicken bride is going to get them.

Anyone notice how very far, far, far away all the guests are from the cake? I don't blame them. They're probably all trying to politely ignore it, while nonchalantly deleting the bride from their phones and contact lists.

sure hope the bride isn't really built like that. and that the dress wasn't as much of a wreck as it looks like in the cake....

I'm hoping maybe she's an aspiring designer?

Anonymous said...

This bride got it all wrong...when the guests are taking bets on how long your marriage will last you tell them to kiss your behind, not eat it.

I can understand the concern everyone has expressed over boob and armpit pieces, but have you all bothered to ponder the horrors that lurk a little more south of those slices here? And let's just hope no hair from her veil(!?!) made its way down that low...

Bryna said...

I can't help but think that this needs a little framed photo on top of her face.

And I know that the wedding is 99% for the woman, but not having the man ANYWHERE near that cake was not very nice! Or VERY nice, depending on how you view it.

Daisy said...

Ways this could have been even creepier:

--Traditional cake toppers (tiny people growing out of her neck!)
--Shove her shoes in the bottom for the "full effect"
--Cake is actually made out of cheese
--Cake is actually made out of the bride*
--Groom's cake was this one

*Too far? Yeah, too far.

Percy Sales Events said...

absolutely speechless...everything is wrong about this including the scale. What was the bride and the baker thinking?

Oh, definitely should have gone with the dress form. Dress forms are elegant. Headless, limbless bodies, not so much.

reminds me of the scene from Beetlejuice, where the couple summon the dead, and the wedding dress starts floating and then she gradually fills it out... *shudder*

So, did they save a boob for their first anniversary?

And I don't know what those guests are all so scared of, it's not like "she" has a handy knife, or a hand to hold it in!

sendingtheclowns said...

So, look: the guests in the background aren't really so much avoiding getting close to the cake as they are waiting their turns at the bar.
Because they pretty much want to be good and blitzed before they're expected to actually take a piece of this amazing confection and put it in their actual mouths.
That's not even the most disturbing thing, in my opinion.
This wedding is apparently ALL about the bride.
What's the groom, chopped liver??? Not even a little representative bow tie laid reverently at her feet? (Oops! There ARE no feet.)
Hmmmm...maybe the groom is the BAKER of this cake...
Aaannd...in a sick, vile, and completely twisted turn of events--has turned out to be a crazed axe murderer, just waiting to take a whack at the non-cake version of his lovely and egotistical bride.

What I do not understand is the current fashion for brides in America to wear red sashes. This is a custom that originates from the middle east and represents the bride's virginity. The groom is to cut it off and present it to the bride's father the next day. Ew!

Where is the outrage over the whole concept of a wedding cake that is all about the bride's dress? My mom called my hubby "rental boy" while we were planning our wedding (which was NOT all about me -- I'm very shy!) but this is going a bit too far in the direction of ignoring one half of the marriage, don't you think?

I had a bride call me and ask if I could make her and her two bridesmaids in their dresses, hair, face and all life size as her wedding cake.

Me: silence.....thought bubble....(seeing the infamous bride cake in my head x3. YUK. and thinking what the heck happened to your poor groom anyway? It's all about you and your besties and your bad taste. poor guy) formulating an answer in my head she cannot argue with.....

finally replying "no I'm sorry I do not have a way to deliver 3 life size 3d cakes of people. Thank you for your interest. Good luck."
