I Wanna Be a Wreck Star

Monday, August 10, 2009

Are you still preoccupied with 1985? (With Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, way before Nirvana...)

If so, then I'm sure you understand wanting an 80s pop star on your cake. Uh. Right?

For instance, how about the artist formerly - and now back to currently - known as Prince?

Yeah, he'd totally rock on a cake. Maybe for a birthday, bridal shower, or any nondescript "sexy" occasion, really.

[PHOTO REMOVED - Sorry, guys, turns out the cake wasn't a pro job. You'll just have to let your imagination run free in place of the actual Wreck.]

Great glaring gobs of guy-liner! I'm pretty sure those lips would make doves cry.
(Say, what kind of cake is this again? Oh, that's right: it's filled with [singing] "RAS-pberry puree...")

Hey, what's Demi Moore doing here?

Oh, sorry, Demi; that's Boy George. Well, I'm sure he'd be great on a cake, too.

Of course, I have been wrong before.

How about a photo cake? Do you have "Faith" that would look better?

Wham I'm not sure that "wham" is appropriate in front of every wham sentence. Wham what do you think? Wham am I right?

And finally, I have to end with what is most certainly NOT a Wreck, so don't even bother trying to find fault with it:

Yep, THAT, my friends, is a David-Bowie-from-Labyrinth cake, aka quite possibly the Coolest Birthday Cake Ever. This thing is up there with the Darth Vader Baby Shower cake in my book. (Well, not the actual book. The figurative one.) Not only does it feature the Goblin King himself, it ALSO says - and with correct quotation marks, even - "You Remind Me of the Babe."

What babe, you ask? Why, the babe with the power.

This cake has renewed my faith in both the airbrush and future generations, so kudos to Maddy's parents for giving her a proper education in all things awesome.

Jenny M., Brian K., Anony M., & Lonny S, you have no power over me.

Related Wreckage: Guess Who!

UPDATE: So apparently, every one of you has seen Purple Rain and can tell that the first cake is actually supposed to be Epco...urm, Morris Day. And it turns out you are correct. Go figure. I'll leave it to Jen to decide how to adjust the post but in the meantime Sexy Morris up there is still giving me the stink eye so I'm still calling wreck. And yes, *sigh* we know George Michael was part of Wham! -john

The David Bowie Labyrinth cake is pretty awesome.

Julie said...

A Labyrinth I really HAVE seen it all!

I should 'blog said...

Don't people READ some comments Before posting their own REPEATS?! ACK!

MoonGoddess said...

Labyrinth has got to be the coolest movie ever & even in cake form!

Annemarie said...

OMG I can't believe it! I had a David Bowie Labyrinth cake for my 6th or 7th birthday party too! We all argued over who got to eat his face!

Christina said...

Ok now that the controversy is over I would like to add a quote that I saw in Toy Fair a long time ago, captioned in a word baloon coming out of Jareth's mouth:
Dance magic dance
In my pants magic pants!

yes, it stuck with me...

MelindaB65 said...

I just have to ask--am I the only one here who knows that patter ("The power of hoodoo." "Who do?" "You do." etc.) from The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer instead of Labyrinth?

fransmomma said...

the babe with the power.
what power?
the power of voo-doo!
who do?
you do!

thanks, now i have to go watch labyrinth.

Kristina said...

Not only is that song going to be in my head for a while, but that is the coolest cake EVER!

I must also join in the chorus of "I want that David Bowie cake, gimme it NAOW!" lol

*skips away doing the Magic Dance*

Susan O. said...

I'm not completely sure that's George Michael. Could it be this guy from the Benny Lava video?

Hm. It's a toss up for me.

The "Happy Birthday Mike" cake (Boy George) looks more like a frosted mahjong tile of someone than a cake. Wow.

Word Verification: "initinti". See? I knew it. These cakes were done by Initiates, not Professionals! *joking*

LadyGlamSlam said...

DANG! I missed the Prince cake.

Suri said...

I'm a bit late to the game, but I just have to say that I'm very disappointed in everyone pointing out the title as a Bowling for Soup reference when the ORIGINAL (and much better version, in my opinion) is actually by SR-71. Look it up on YouTube or Imeem.

I LOVE Prince so I wish I would have discovered this site earlier to see the Prince cake. lol


lolcatt said...

VeggieT said...

Lucy said...

THe Labyrinth cake is awesome, just like the film!

"Not the Bog of Eternal Stench!" (which is where some wrecks have clearly been...)

Vanessita said...

Soooo Girlie Geek, love the movie!!!

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the David Bowie cake. I've seen much prettier cakes on this site, so I set the bar extremely, insanely high... :/

Still, the Boy George cake was really funny!
