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

If it was a Morris Day rather than Prince cake they were going for, they'd be dead on!

Are you sure that isn't a young Al Sharpton on the Prince cake? lol.

The Caked Crusader said...

are you sure that the top one isn't meant to be Little Richard?

That Prince cake looks more like Morris Day, you know, Morris Day and the Time? Anyway, Love the David Bowie Cake, it makes me feel the need to say, "You have no power over me!"

I think the first cake is Morris Day from Morris Day and the Time.
Oh - E - Oh - E - Oh
Are you sure it was supposed to be Prince?

Is it me, or does the Prince cake look more like LIttle Richard?

That first cake may not look like Prince, but it sure as shoot looks just like Morris Day from The Time. Still, a wrecky mess.

Haha, that Prince cake reminds me so much of Old Gregg from the Mighty Boosh:

janet said...

Holy Freaking Crap that Labyrinth cake is awesome!

But I think I'll try to find fault with it, just to spite you. ;D

Ummmmm... David Bowie's hair could be bigger. I guess. Or maybe it could have some Realistic 3D Codpiece Action. XD

Harley Quinn said...

That Prince cake looks more like Morris Day (Cameo) to me than Prince. What do you think: http://tinyurl.com/lhzpmm

Euan said...

Hmmm... you sure they didn't ask for a Morris Day cake?

Jacqui said...

Are you sure the Prince cake isn't supposed to be Morris Day from Morris Day and The Time? He is often mistaken for Prince, and the cake looks a lot like Morris Day from this photo: http://tinyurl.com/lhzpmm

diddleymaz said...

That first one could be almost anyone from a young Sammy davis jnr onwards,The Boy george is good cant see any wreckiness there, as for George and Bowie just not my thing so "shudder" they give me the creeps.
As your such a fan of Labyrinth i supose we must indulge your blind spot about how is a 5 year old suposed to get that cake obviousley its for her Mum!!

Jennifer said...

I don't think the Boy George cake it TOO terrible -- If someone were to put it in front of me, I think I could at least guess who it's supposed to be. The Prince cake, on the other hand, I would think is of Little Richard. After he's been punched in the eye.

Anonymous said...

The first cake looks more like Morris Day, methinks.

Judy said...

"RAS-pberry puree..." Hee! Hee! Hee!

I have a new song to sing and dance around the bakery. Thanks Jen ;D

Sarah said...

Is it just me, or does David Bowie not have hands?

Lindsey said...

Are you sure that's not Morris Day from the Time on the first cake? The mustache seems a bit thick for Prince.

Anonymous said...

"Chop Chop Sexy" ??? If that's a Prince reference, I don't understand it (and I don't think I want to understand that one either...) must he glare like that at me?

Wham that's great stuff, I chortle out loud and I'm pretty sure my coworkers think I'm crazy---oh well!

Vicki said...

That first cake looks more like Morris Day than Prince.

BrideTide said...

MY EYES!! That "Prince" cake is going to give me nightmares for weeks.

Tralix said...

That's not prince, it's Morris Day! It's a perfect likeness.
Really!

Shannon said...

That Labyrinth cake is awesome. Every child should experience Labyrinth.

Every time I type Labyrinth it just looks wrong in so many ways.

Anonymous said...

P.S. -- I think that looks more like LeVar Burton from "Reading Rainbow" than Prince on that wreck. Tell me you don't see it!

Lindsey said...

Oh my word. That Prince cake looks more like Little Richard than it does Prince! Little Richard with a lazy eye, actually.

I would also like to say that while I haven't seen "Labyrinth" in years and years, it is still one of my all-time favorite movies. I couldn't even attempt to count all the slumber parties that culminated in a marathon watching of "Labyrinth". That movie is pure '80's awesomness.

Melissa said...

Are you sure that's supposed to be Prince and not Morris Day (who also was in Purple Rain)?

That first cake looks eerily like Morris Day of The Time, actually.

John Overholt said...

I think that's Morris Day, not Prince.

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Regarding the first one: I don't appreciate my food giving me the stink eye.

The Wham cake reads they are celebrating the recipient's Birthday Eve. I'm going to start celebrating my Birthday Eve in addition to my birthday. More cake, more presents!

As a side note, the Boy George cake reminded me of the time my stepson said he wanted to be either Michael Jackson or Boy George when he grew up. Yikes.

allie said...

BTW, before there was just George Michael, he was part of a duo called "Wham!" And before that there was a girl in the group and they were "Wham!U.K." Personally I think it was clever coming from a cheeky Brit!

April said...

The Prince cake looks more like Morris Day from "The Time". Remember? From Purple Rain?

That first cake bears the likeness of Morris Day, who plays Prince's nemesis in "Purple Rain", and "Chop Chop Sexy" is one of his lines from the movie. It's actually a pretty good rendering, if you ask me. Here's a photo for reference:

that's not Prince. That's the boyfriend of the girl Eddie Murphy was after in "Coming To America" He worked for that hair care company and thought he was fabulous. He'd love to see himself on a cake.

*gasp!* david bowie cake! eeee!

i would like to point out that it's not unreasonable for a 5 yr old to have a labyrinth cake like diddleymaz seemed to think it was. i mean labyrinth came out when i was, what 7?, and i thought it was the coolest.

Suzy said...

Yay! The Labyrinth cake makes me so happy : ) I was hoping from the beginning that David Bowie would make it on the list, and it's nice to see he's not a wreck!

diopsideanddiamonds said...

The hands on the BG cake are worrisome, but at least it's recognizably BG.

The Prince cake looks less like Price and more like a frightened 1950s backup doo-wop singer.

Nosnin said...

The David Bowie cake is pure awesomeness!

Trevor said...

I don't think that's a Prince cake, Jen. I think it's Morris Day (from the Time and also starred in "Purple Rain.").

I think the first wreck may be Morris Day from The Time. Clearly still a wreck however...

At least I am not the only one who thought the Prince cake looked like Morris Day. :D

Anonymous said...

From the Livejournal RSS Feed

The first cake is a very good likeness of Morris Day, and that is one of his lines from the movie Purple Rain. Was it supposed to be Prince and the cake person got confused?

Fairly Odd Mother said...

"RAS-pberry puree.. ." is brilliant, even if I will have the song in my head for the rest of the day.

rhonda said...

I would flip if someone got me the Boy George cake. OK, so he's gone off the deep end in the last couple of decades but back in the day I was a huge fan. I don't think it's that wrecky at all, you can tell who it's meant to be after all and that takes some skill.

Schroduck said...

The figure on that first cake looks more Thornton Reed from Darkplace than the Artist Formerly Known As. I can imagine Thornton yelling "Chop chop sexy" as well...

"Chop chop, sexy! This is from Won-Ton himself, and he's got a lawnmower, ya dig?"

Dawne said...

Dance Magic Dance!

kitschinlogic said...

That Prince cake looks more like Morris Day from Morris Day & The Time - Prince's warm-up band who were also in the movie Purple Rain.

Half Assed Kitchen said...

Are you sure that's Boy George? I'm thinking it's a male Flamenco dancer. Or something.

Kethryvis said...

The Wham! cake might have been better had they used the actual name of the group... it wasn't "Wham" it was "Wham!" To quote the illustrious Vanilla Ice:

That little bitty !. It's not the same!

It would have made the cake make more sense at any rate.

And i'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks the Prince cake looks like Morris Day of The Time. OhEOhEOh indeed.

deckardcanine said...

I think the second cake, while not looking much like Boy George (if it's even supposed to), looks better than the photo before it. Maybe the Wreckorator did it to save his sanity.

TeeVeeEll said...

The Prince cake bears a striking resemblance to Morris Day of The Time fame... Anyone? Anyone??

Melinda said...

I see Little Richard more than prince too, but either way it's a wreck. Raspberry puree had me laughing out loud!

Jenna said...

What power??

Love it!!

Nikki said...

Harley Quin, The group Cameo was actually led by Larry Blackmon. Morris Day lead the group The Time.

And that cake is definitely the spitting image of Morris Day. Still a wreck, but a good likeness.

Erica C. said...

Awwww, man! Now you have that song stuck in my head! "What power? The power of voodoo! Who do? You do! Remind me of the babe!" Bah... it's going to be a loooong day now. :)

Queen of the Universe said...

My first thought too was "Morris Day". That's my final answer.

Kayleen the Violinist said...

"ras-berry puree" .... LOL - you are awesome!

Erin Bradley said...

That's no wreck, that's Morris Day. An intentional Morris Day if I ever saw one.

holly said...

1. Prince has some wonky eyes going on in that cake. They go in different directions.

2. Looks more like a Native American of some sort than Boy George.

3. As for Jareth, all I can say is "I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave." Yowza!!!

I'm sorry, but the David Bowie cake is probably the scariest cake I've ever seen...that's probably b/c when I saw Labyrinth as a child I ran screaming from the room.

Seriously, it scared me and I had nightmares about goblins for days...

Hopefully I won't have nightmares of David Bowie for days...

Amanda in Austin said...

Regarding putting "Wham" into your sentences, have you seen the kids show on PBS called "Word Girl"? There is a bad guy on that show called The Whammer, and he substitutes the word "wham" for other words in his sentences all the time. It's hilarious! "This is so not wham." It reminds me of the Smurfs, when they would insert "smurf" into normal words. "That's smurftastic, Papa Smurf!" Etc. Etc.

Anyway, that was quite a tangent, but your George Michael cake made me think of it.

Also, the Prince cake looks more like Little Richard to me.

Sasha said...

That Boy George cake is actually pretty sweet!!

KT said...

Lol Morris Day @ 11:28- who IS that first cake supposed to be? I feel like, at least 80 people should know who that is, and not hesitate to let us know.

oh, and having recently viewed "Purple Rain" on cable during a late night insomnia bout, I'm about 99% sure that's supposed to be Morris Day. And it really does look like him IMHO, although I have NO idea what "chop chop sexy" means.

Madd said...

I like 20th the folks who said the first cake was probably Morris Day. That's the first thing that popped in to my head when I saw that cake. It also fits more with the text. Morris Day does, in fact, say "Chop, chop!"

The Labyrinth cake is AWESOME.

That said, there's even better news: there may someday be a sequel! WOOHOO!!! Check it out: "the final, crazy bit of news from Jim Henson's son is the studio's desire to return to the world of their cult classic Labyrinth. Henson described this idea by saying "Actually, we're talking about doing something different with Labyrinth but I can't really talk about it." The existence of such a film is highly contingent upon the success of Dark Crystal 2. This means get out there and watch DC2 at least a dozen times each and encourage your friends to do the same. And by encourage, I mean force."

Boy George is actually pretty well done. Hope Mike didn't "want to hurt" the wreckorator too much! (unless he ASKED for BG on a cake!)

George Michael looks happy. I'd have a hard time cutting into his face. Photo cakes=bad idea.

And anything with Jareth is win.

Annette said...

I really don't think the Boy George cake is all that bad, especially considering the subject matter. Now why someone would WANT a Boy George cake is another issue entirely. But I thought the Bowie cake was a little off, it looks more like Bon Jovi to me. And the first one that's no longer shown is a actually pretty good Morris Day, considering that it's non-pro!

MelindaB65 said...

Score! I saw this post first thing this morning as my daughter was looking at the site and I said, "That cake looks more like Morris Day than Prince." Of course, she had no idea who I was talking about.

*A-HEM*
I beg your PARDON?? Bowie's sound was everything! 1969 was the year to end all years. Woodstock. Space Oddity. I could go on (don't fret- I won't).
If you weren't a teen in the 60's or 70's, you missed EVERYthing!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Now, as for Cake "David"... I think it/he looks more like Meg Ryan, or maybe Cyndi Lauper, than Bowie... but whatever.
Boy George as cake (Mike, is that YOU?) looks like an Amish schoolboy with latent Rastafarian tendencies.
The "Wham" cake is only half of Wham! so I guess that's a Bargain Bin cake. Notice that a big chunk of icing is stuck to the side of the box? Bummer, huh?

Are you sure that is meant to be Boy George? I think it looks like a fantastic wealthy Bolivian llama farmer.

Goblin king! :D There isn't an emote with a smile big enough to express my glee.

*Dance magic dance magic dance...*

Brooke said...

I had to work late today and now I've missed my chance to see the Prince/Morris cake. Waaaah. Amateur decorator, won't you please give permission to put your cake back up.

Rachel said...

I was (still am) madly in love with George Michael back in the Faith days (I was in 3rd grade). I used to kiss my life-size, full-length George Michael poster. I had every Wham! tape. My mom made me a cheesecake for my 10th birthday with pictures of George Michael glued to toothpicks. It rocked. I would have loved a George Michael cake like the one shown here, whether it be on my actual birthday or my birthday eve.

ahhhhh 'ello!

Labrynth fans every where! Fabulous!

BethStev said...

David Bowie! Insane 80's makeup! Labyrinth references!

Please excuse me, I have to listen to Magic Dance.

"You remind me of the Babe."
"What Babe?"
"The Babe with the power."
"What power?"
"The power of voodoo."
"Who do?"
"You do."
"Do what?"
"Remind me of the Babe." : )

Bree said...

David Bowie!! David Bowie!! Guess what I want on my birthday cake this year now?!

Chrissy said...

Aw I just KNEW you'd love labyrinth! YAY!

The Minears said...

I'm going to send a link of this post to my aunt, my cousin will be 3 in November and I'm sure she would love a Labyrinth cake. Or at least the rest of the family would...

Thanks, Jen, you started off my day with a sparkle of happiness. And now I need to check iTunes for songs from the Labyrinth soundtrack.

@ILoveBabyQuilts--Ha!! I love it. I remember Marcel Proust and the madeline...a colleague had a book called "Proust was a Neuroscientist" or something to that effect and there was a madeline on the cover. I asked him to let me know why when he finished reading the book. Too funny!

PS: If there is a Labyrinth 2 my BFF will melt into a puddle of fangirlish goo.

Take down the mention is we can't see the cake.

Gosh..I don't know what a Bolivian llama is, but I Googled your everday "llama" and it seems that they go for somewhere between $2,000 and $3,500 apiece in general...
Not bad, but not really enough to consider farming them a "goldmine" job, either...
Personally I'd go for the Alpaca--they're in the same family, but go for a LOT more, for some reason (about the price of a luxury car for the females).
And I guess Bolivians can do it as well as anyone...
=^--^=

bodoba said...

Honestly I think WHAM as a word is making a comeback. And yes labyrinth rocks.

Judy said...

Frankie says Relax!

Jay said...

Mr Michael looks like a werewolf in that cake..

Jenn said...

Way to go with the reference to Bowling for Soup! :)

endlessquestions said...

I don't care if it was Prince or not - your "raspberry puree" quote was pure-e genious!

Keeley said...

You are so stinkin' COOL for liking Labyrinth.

My brain is now full of that song. "The power of voodoo who do you do remind me of the babe...."

Kayla said...

I love David Bowie!!! I want that cake for my birthday. *going to watch Labyrinth*

Phoebe said...

I love the Labyrinth Cake

Nat said...

By the time I got here today -- sorry been putting out IT fires since 5:00 am PDT -- the Prince cake was gone. But, I will assume it was a life-size 9X13 sheet?

summur braley said...

Dude I am all over the George Micheal cake.We share the same birthday...........freaky that i know that; but when I was 13 and I discovered this fact I told everyone. And now I am strangley telling you..........:)lol

Shadarus said...

Hi! *waves* Long time lurker, first time commenter. Your website is on my 'daily check-list'!
I just had to stop by and say two things.
1) *bows to the awesomeness of the Labyrinth cake*
2) I'm really hoping that this post means that your e-mail will soon be flooded with more of them!
Must scamper off now and throw on my Labyrinth DVD... or my original-issue VHS... or perhaps the soundtrack on CD... or maybe the record...

LadyIslay said...

The Boy George cake is actually not all that bad. Aside from the fact that it is Boy George, of course. And the yellow sprinkles. I'm voting 'not a wreck' on that one.

Altissima said...

Totally not fair removing the picture of the Prince/Morris Day cake, but leaving in the description and all the comments.
SHOW ME THE CAKE!!!!

Mars said...

Darn it, now I'm going to have to pull out my Bowling For Soup because that song is going to be stuck in my head all day!

Lady Meerkat said...

Jareth on a cake is a great idea but I'm not sure about this example from that angle.

Anonymous said...

To all the haters of the Bowie cake:

It may not be a piece of cake magic, but its BOWIE! And that is good enough for me.

And even catching up again today, every time someone posted the Dance Magic lyrics I sang right through them. Never gets old!

Diana said...

Umm.. Wham! was George Micheals' first band. But you knew that..right? Right? Please say you knew that!

Man, I'm sorry I missed the Prince cake. Was it purple?

Jacqui said...

For those who missed the "Prince" cake, as Anonymous said, it can be found here: http://s93.photobucket.com/albums/l62/lacyegirl/Cake/

Dea said...

What babe? The babe with the power. What power? The power of the voodoo. Who do? You do. Do what?

LOVE LOVE LOVE Labyrinth!!! Jennifer Connelly before A Beautiful Mind....bliss.

Anonymous said...

ZOMG! Return to the Labyrinth vol. 3 just came out and I'm on a total Labyrinth fangirl binge right now (if you thought Jareth was yummy in the movie, wait 'til you see him in bishounen form!).
That Jareth cake is le awesome! SQUEE!

Jaemi said...

I love the Labyrinth!! My husband got me the movie for Christmas!! That is a great cake, I would be happy to get it for my birthday.

totalblammblamm said...

Oh, the Bowie cake is ADORABLE!

I'd love one for my upcoming (eeek, 41st!!) birthday! :-D

TwilightTwins2 said...

The Prince one looked more like Morris Day.

luna said...

the power of the voodoo!!!!!!!
one of my fave movies *ever*...i so wish this was my cake!!

Lynn said...

The labyrinth cake is creepy to me because the goblin king was after the girl thru the whole movie...and the cake is for a 5 year old...very unsavory/distasteful and Boy George and George Michael...??? Same goes although the BG cake is well done !

How about a book signing in Northeast Florida ???

RecoveringActor said...

I NEED THAT DAVID BOWIE CAKE!!! I totally have Jareth The Goblin King on a T-Shirt... and it's my favorite. Now I have "Dance Magic, Dance" stuck in my head.

Lynn said...

BTW,
As a parent of 5 kids in the "Labyrinth Generation" I kind of regret letting them watch that movie so many times...who do, you do, Voo Doo, the power of the babe ? Oh, crap ! What HAVE I done ????

And a sequel ? All five will be buying tickets as soon as it hits ( and taking THEIR kids to see it too)

Secret Agent Crazy-Person said...

What power?!
Who do?
Do what?

Tamsin said...

You may already know but if you like Bowling for Soup check out Butch Walker - he produced one of their albums and has some fantastic and entertaining lyrics.

Becky said...

Will I be banned from this blog if I admit that I have never even heard of Labyrinth?

Bree said...

The Boy George cake isn't that bad, although I keep seeing Emma Thompson dressed AS Boy George.

And while I was never a big fan of Labyrinth (I was into the Muppet and John Hughes movies myself), it's nice to see something a little different on a kid's cake than the princesses and cars and Spidermen and frogs that look like aliens.

Eclectic E said...

"The power of voodoo. Who do? You do?"
The Labyrinth cake just made me want to go buy that movie again, so I can show it to my kids. Love it!

mandacantu said...

Oh how I love thee, David Bowie. You will always make women swoon in Labyrinth as you dance around in those spandex pants, mmm mmmmm.
