The Joker's Revenge

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Thank goodness for those big photo books at the bakery counter. You know, the ones with all the cake designs in them? Yeah. Without those, how would we ever know what toys come with the cake?

What's that? You thought the books showed the cake designs, too? Ah. Please excuse me for a moment, while I turn my head and laugh heartily at your oh-so-sweet naivete.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Ahah.

I do so love shattering expectations.

Here's what Naomi J. ordered:
"Taxi!"


Aaand what she received:

Great slithering slabs of slime-secreting slugs, Sally!
(Sorry Naomi; I needed an S name.)

Note how all that airbrush dye pools together and glistens wetly in the light. Mmm. And the way that blackened, moldy green offsets the fluorescent green border. Yeah, that's tasty. And, of course, there's the eclair-filling slug bombs; can't forget those.

However, you should also note - and in the decorator's defense - that the batman toys look exactly the same. Hooray, photo book!

i like the skyline in the 'book' example.
i used to spend part of the time Mum was grocery shopping looking at that book of pictures when i was little. i'd pick out which one i would order or make. we never bought cakes like that because Mum's are infinitely better. but i liked the licensed characters.

Karen B. said...

Oh my...that's all I can muster at this point.

Jael said...

I think we should be glad that at least the decorator did not try to recreate the puff of exhaust coming out of the car.

That being said (and having just woken up) I had to stare at the lemon-tart slugs for a long time before I realised they were supposed to be lines in the road. Supposed.

julia said...

i hope all that food coloring didn't make it taste nasty.

that makes me sad. and angry. some people have no pride in their work. that wasn't even a difficult design!
....not even a "boff!" or a "pow!"
sigh.

Josh (the DMT said...

Why is Batman doing the Hitler salute in these pictures? It seems a bit out of character for him. But so does standing still, ankle deep in icing, while injustices like that horrible cake go unpunished!

Banana slugs!

Ohhhh myyyyy....

Helen Highwater said...

That is... an intriguing interpretation. :-O

Wildroses said...

How bizarre. The first one doesn't even look that hard to do, really. It's like the decorator didn't even try.

Leslie said...

The cake is definitely a wreck, but I'm stuck on Batman's pose. You can almost hear him say, "Stop, evildoer! Put down that airbrush gun!"

Angie said...

That's just horrible. I hope the wreckreator had a good excuse for that... like she/he was drunk. Or blind.

Amanda M. said...

wow, that is awful. I wouldn't have accepted that monstrosity!

Mella said...

that's a disgusting yellow

Anonymous said...

It does look a bit like the Jokers face......

Flartus said...

Oh, and the nuclear moon! Can't forget that!

Honestly, looking at the first cake, I knew that airbrushing was way beyond your average wreckerator's skills. Yet, that particular wreckerator still managed to amaze me. What another glorious example of wreckitude!

Wreck on, Batman.

(WV: mustsi: you really mustsi this one to believe it!)

Alex Getts said...

The Wreck really Schumackered it up!

Anonymous said...

As a child in South Africa we would express sarcastic sympathy by saying "my heart bleeds lumpy custard for you". All I can see on this cake is lumpy custard. mmmmmmm.

Alison said...

Good GRIEF!!!!

frigglesnitz said...

There's no words. None. Poor Jackson. (I think it's supposed to be Jackson, right?) (deep and heavy sigh)

WV- prizess - That cake will not win any prizess, preciousss.

Jessie said...

At least the toys are the same, right? Right? If you squint your eyes and turn your head sideways the cake could work... errr, maybe not, actually.

Anonymous said...

That is just so bad!!! I guess the only reason she accepted and paid for it is so she could send a picture of the WRECK onto you. =)

Belle Epoque said...

AhhhHahahaha...that cake should come with a sound byte from the Joker himself...

Bonnie said...

Oh my goodness! I wouldn't have even taken that from the bakery! That looks utterly disgusting! Especially the slimy slugs... gag.

Poor Jackson. Poor Naomi!

Wide Awake Wife said...

Before I started making my kids' birthday cakes, I let them choose the design from the book. Their decision was always based on what toys they would be licking icing off of. Thanksfully, they turned out like the design in the book and not like this mess! Yet another reason I'm glad I make the cakes now and am not tempting fate anymore!

How did they mess up the dividing lines of the street? With a doughnut creme filler thing?

Well, it's better than I'd be able to do. But then, I don't work in a Safeway claiming to be "professional" either.

Disgusting! Did they actually have to pay for that?

Mmmmmm, great cake for anyone on a diet. Not only does it deter you from having a slice of cake, it may make you lose your lunch.

Wow.. the site of those "slugs" nearly made me lose my breakfast. Poor Jackson..

sdreader said...

This has to be a fake (they kept the toys from the original cake and remade a bad one). Who in their right mind would accept a cake that looked like THIS?? EVERYTHING is wrong with it!

Anonymous said...

You gotta wonder sometimes. Taxi...that's classic.

Sam Posnick said...

The toys are the same? In the second photo, it looks more like Batman is making an (appropriate) WTF gesture, rather than hailing a cab. Got to love the three pupae on the bottom of the cake though, what are those supposed to be?

Taylor (My Older Brothers) said...

@Alex Getts
That's hilarious. "The Wreck really Schumackered it up!"
Brilliant.

Maddy said...

Yes I had to double check the slugs to see what they were supposed to really be. It's pretty scary when road markings change like that without warning. Puts a whole new meaning on 'tip' size.
Cheers

denisewalks said...

Oh my gawd was all I could mutter under my breath.

My first thought was why are there little yellow poops on the bottom of that cake?

MMCQuarterback said...

My 11 year old daughter (also a cakewrecks fan) looked at the blobs on the left bottom and said, "What IS that?!?!" I said, "Mayonnaise?"

VeggieT said...

I was going to say that at least the decorator remembered the 3 road stripes, but then I read the whole slug description and ruined my appetite...

W.V. Coragria: The Coragria Slug is a precocious little devil, sometimes refered to as the "butter bug" this little guy is often attracted to sugary sweet substances and watching super-hero movies...

Christa said...

What the...?!?!??!
Those globs of eeriely greenish yellow slimey icing...looks like something a nurse in an OB office would have to clean up after a hooker got an exam.

Lynn said...

I love how if you look closely you can tell that the Wreckerator was actually *trying* to re-create the scene from the book...

The brown stripe with yellow slugs is supposed to be the road and dividing stripes.
The black green blob-stripe is the buildings, sort of.
The orange spot in the top left corner is trying to be the sun.
And then the blue blob is sky.

It's kinda like those Magic Eye pictures, just keep squinting, you'll see it eventually. :)

Jacintha said...

That is downright offensive. That's not lack of skill, it's lack of trying.

Tamaran said...

OMG!

Amanda in Austin said...

The slugs! The slugs!

The Accidental Parisian said...

In all honesty, the "original" isn't much to look at, either. But it doesn't have yellow roadkill!

Cr4zySAHMandArmywife said...

Yuck!

MalMal said...

Ooooh... lines in the road... thanks previous posters for clearing that up for me. I could not for the life of me imagine what Batman character flung slugs.

wv: sluggo. Seriously.

Rebecca said...

I can't believe someone paid for that.

Redgryphon said...

This is your cake. THIS is your cake on drugs.

Just say No to drugs (or slugs, as the case may be)

David and Sandy said...

I don't think this cakewreck is real. I think they ordered it like this, or made it at home.

madrobins said...

Just from the differences in color between the source cake and the second, um, example, I think this is simply a cry for help. The poor decorator has eye trouble. Quick, to the Opthalmologist Cave!

Becky said...

I can't imagine what was going through the mid of the person operating the airbrush. I spent over 2 decades working as a baker and pastry chef and that is as bad as anything I've ever seen. I hope that the purchaser of this product was offered a refund, a free new cake and a year's supply of free cupcakes. Then I hope the alleged "decorator" was hauled unceremoniously out behind the dumpster and flogged with some greasy parchment paper. And fired. That item is an invitation to lose business.

Jessica said...

Robin is conspicuously missing from the scenario!

mn_me said...

what happened to the sun? the sun has fallen out of the sky!! oh dear!

like Jael said it took a second look to figure out what the lemon blobs were SUPPOSED to be. Good thing the wreckorator doesn't do work in the "real" world or cars would be wrecked as well as cakes.

I hope they didn't even leave the bakery with this one... ick

Terry Lee said...

i can't believe no one has made a "holy cakewreck, batman!" comment yet.

ewwww to the slugs. ewwww to the whole terrifying thing.

poor, poor birthday boy.

Claude said...

I would NOT have paid for that cake!

Anonymous said...

Does this wreckorator live where there are no roads???
They obviously have a small tip, they used it for the "inscription".
(Yes grammar police, I reject the rule about punctuation inside quotes.)
@David and Sandy: we have been through this 500 times: Jen does NOT post homemade cakes without disclosing it.
"It's a fake wreck" accusations get old. Time to give up you faith in humanity and accept that people are this bad at their jobs.

Yota Armai said...

The 2nd ones background looks more like a spooky scene for a southern vampire cake (poorly done mind you).

assistant: "I'm just finishing up that true blood cake they ordered"

boss(coming in with batman toys): "What true blood cake? they wanted batman, here look at the picture!"

asst: "What?!? I know!" (whips out shiny yellow frosting) "I'll just add lines to the road, they'll never know the difference"

♥Libby said...

I can't even believe this one is real.

Megan said...

Oficially worst wreck EVER!

Anonymous said...

That's awful! Since I have no baking or decorating skills, I have ordered several of the "book" cakes from grocery store bakeries, and they've all turned out just as pictured in the book.

txhsmom said...

seeing that makes me really glad that our local store will sell me the toy kit. I just stick it on a homemade cake and the kids just want the toys anyway. That has to be one of the most unappetizing messes I've ever seen. Yuck!

Stella said...

"HOLY SLITHING SLUGS BATMAN, WHERE AM I," the Boy wonder asks....

mudslicker said...

Thank god they have BOOKS to tell you how to decorate your own cakes. Whether the baker chooses to read them is a whole other thing.

I'm going to delude myself into believing that mommy let Jackson decorate his own cake...snot slugs and all. Because, as we all know, it's entirely plausible to believe that 4 year olds have mastered the art of cursive writing.

Christina said...

I know this is a Batman cake but the only thing that came to mind when I saw it was Harry Potter: "Eat slugs!"
Perhaps the wreckerator had a broken wand?

The Joker said...

"Introduce a little anarchy... upset the established order... and everything becomes chaos! I'm an agent of chaos."

:::b r a n d i::: said...

Holy cow! What decorator thought THAT was close to what it was supposed to be???

Anonymous said...

This gives me an idea for playing the game "telephone" with wrecks.

Take a picture of a wreck, go into a store and ask for that design. Receive worse wreck in return. Take a picture of it. Repeat until no longer recognizable.

David said...

You can almost follow the wreckoraters train of thought, because, this particular wreckorater has no clue who Batman is, and upon looking at the design they are to copy, assumes the Batmobile is being pursued by small yellow snakes slithering down the road...so they think, I know, we'll turn them into huge giant slugs...the kids will LOVE that!

Country Cookin' Mama said...

Oh man, I hope she didn't actually pay for that.

sunlizzard said...

Actually, the "slug" road stripes? Look to me like that foam stuff you get to fill in cracks around windows--as soon as you spray it out, it expands to like 8 times larger. Ewwww. That is truly the most UNappetizing cake you've ever featured!

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

I think the cake wreckorator in question is a joker, a smoker, a midnight toker.

spangle287 said...

oh my....we just dont have this kind of thing in the UK where you choose form a book in the store itself....and those sluggy blobby things...excuse me, and going to be siii.....

BethStev said...

Oh My Gosh!! I think the slugs ate Robin! Or they rolled over him and he drowned in their ooze... And poor Batman reached out to save him, but was too slow. : (

wv: unglarg- the noise Robin made when he was drowning

MonkeeMama said...

I only paid for it because unfortunately my son was with me and just saw the Batman figurine, and happily exclaimed a "Batman Cake!". She only charged me for the plain cake, which actually did taste good, but its not HARD for this one to taste better than it looks!

I feel like a celebrity now, a whole post to my wreck!

Carrie I said...

Also - if that big black area WERE actually buildings, the Batmobile would most definitely be driving up them.

Little Lovables / Jeweled Ambrosia said...

wow, I hope she didn't pay full price for that sucker

I first thought those sluggy things were peeled garlic cloves, and thought, "On a CAKE?!?!" *shudder*

Also making it too hot to bother arguing with the store or with a 4 year old who just wants some CAKE! Love the 84+ comments! :)

Holy Banana Slugs, Batman! It's Jackson's Birthday! I hope he's too young to remember that cake.

Nope, sorry, wouldn't have paid for it, would have left without it. How disappointing.

Hilarious idea!!

Lorraine said...

Monkee Momma, I am glad your little boy was happy with the cake. My tactic when using a "professional" bakery: arrange to pick up the cake early, so if changes need to be made, there's time to do it, and never bring your child with you if it's the child's cake. I learned that from experience. Picked up daughter's cake and she was with me. I wasn't happy with it, but she was, so I paid for it and took it home. This was years ago, before I found my daily dose of Laughter that is CakeWrecks.

laura said...

Wow the poor cake decorator. Just trying to be original! fail.

it's like ralph steadman before and after meeting hunter thompson.

faradayflux said...

My first thought... banana slug road kill.

Anonymous said...

I'm still stuck on the slugs... When decorating, don't you have a piping bag? I mean, I know I do when I make my amateur cakes...so why would you pipe out such huge, horrible things like that unless it's just pure laziness? Squiggliness, okay, even I've done that before. But you have to TRY to get them that big.

I think someone _wants_ to get fired.

Norkio said...

What in the hell!?

word ver: mealsit - the occasion that takes place before this nasty wreck shows up.

Phoenyx said...

Holy hack job, batman! This is beyond 'wreck'. And the slugs... I haven't seen something so revolting since those slug things in the swamp in the latest remake of "King Kong". *shudders*

Heh, my "word verification" was bakedu... fitting, this was definitely baked doo

Anonymous said...

So MonkeeMama, what was the decorator's excuse for it looking like that? I'm glad they didn't charge you full price for it!

R. said...

BWAHAHAHH... Now I am no Batman fan, but is the Batmobile really able to "climb" buildings? How can he not even bable to place the car on the road?

Kimberly said...

What really horrifies me is that the slug blobs appear to be a "fix". See the yellow beneath? Like... they airbrushed the lines? And then decided, "Oh, no, that won't do. Let me fix this. Ah! There we go. Perfect."

Vomit.

Miranda said...

I can't imagine putting any of that yucky, paint-slick glop in my mouth.

What is up with people who can't even make a decent shell border??? I could do that when I was ten years old! Squeeze, pull, release the icing. I mean...seriously!

lol "why so srs"

MamaX5 said...

I may never be able to eat an eclair or other cream-filled delight again. Those "dashes" look off.

Eekk. How awful. Again, I wouldn't pay for that.

Erm, it occurs to me, I could toke at midnight, consume questionable mushrooms, and take a handful of random pills, and *still* do better than that.

...hey, if I can do a perfect manicure under such "midnight" conditions, I can do a passable cake too...not necessarily picture perfect, but certainly not a vile horror!

Erin said...

wow...I have no words..I hope they didn't have to pay for it. Looking at it is bad enough. maybe we can at least hope it was tasty.

Dorci said...

Holy cow, Robin! I was jarred almost right out of my chair as I scrolled down to see what Naomi had to lug home and then somehow explain to poor little 4 year old Jackson. Looks like an infestation of giant slugs has taken over the road there. And what? No Bat signal?! Shameful. Just shameful.

LAURA said...

I wish I had took a pic of my son's 2nd bday. it didnt come home with me. It was a doggie sheet cake with red and blue. But the one I got was a plain white cake with a outline dog bone in the middle with jerry in it and my sons name is jeremiah. I almost cried. I was like I refue to pay for this and then they called the manager who said it was half price. I was not nice.

Just for the record: I just found out about this website when I was discussing it with my friend, who recommended that I send it in. Thanks Jen M! Now I am hooked to the blog and will probably never ever experience a postable wreck like this again! Luckily for the future of all of my kids birthdays!:)

Teressa Thompson said...

ROFL Oh my gosh! That's disgusting. I kept looking at the pic of the book cake and trying to figure out why the slugs were there. it was the wreckorators attempt at the lines on the road. lol And the Bakery manager let it go out the door!

MinnieK said...

I look at so many of these entries and am appalled at the results. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't pay for that lame excuse of a cake. I mean, maybe I would just so that I could take it home and take a picture to submit to this blog, but I'd still complain to the manager.

Andy Mathis said...

Glad that Jackson was happy.

Kirsty said...

Have you ever looked at a picture and then tried to draw it again with your eyes closed? Yeh, it sort of looks like they were doing that.

I'm sorry I looked... that was just awful.

Hey, look! They already used your idea!
They are REAL pros, though, to be able to get to "no longer recognizable" in only ONE step.

Now. This is how I REALLY feel:

It's for a kid!! A very YOUNG kid.
And it has little-kid-and-especially-boys-stuff all OVER it:
Batman. Batman TOYS!
Frosting. Very COLORFUL frosting!
And the best thing of all: it was Jackson's BIRTHDAY!
Excitement and fun and being young...!

Wow..that is something I would definitely not pay for.

"Missed mark" is truly an understatement.

my first thought o those 'slugs' was "why did they put garlic cloves on a cake with batman?" i don't know which i'd prefer...ew.

Lisa Leggett said...

Urp. Of all the grotesque things that we've seen on cakes... those slugs, which I believe are supposed to represent road striping, might be the very worst. They look...[shuddering] like puss... infected puss. Excuse me, I must run away now I think I'm going to hurl... happy thoughts...happy thoughts!

Anonymous said...

what is up with the 1-2 cake per post lately :( has been very dissapointing

Annette said...

I don't think that's airbrushing under the banana slugs. I think that the lefthand slug actually slipped a bit (or crawled away) after it was "piped" on the cake, taking the airbrushed colour with it. Either way, it's a horrible cake. I can't imagine what an awkward situation that would be looking at this thing with your 4yr old excited about the toys.

bodoba said...

In a kinda backwards way...there is a certain skill involved in being able to make a highway line look like a slug. Maybe this is really symbols upon symbols in a cake.

Or maybe it's a wreckerpiece.

Mandy said...

Oh, for the love of Pete.

Lynn said...

That cake would be rejected and NOT paid for on the spot and I would have a few choice words for the bakery manager too !

A pre-made cake in the cooler would however be a good substitute ( with no writing on it at all ) I wouldn't take any chances...

Anonymous said...

My son had that exact same cake years ago. Fortunately, our local cake decorators take a lot of pride in their cakes and his turned out really good. How disappointed they must have been. I have been so fortunate to have never bought a wreck so far. Tho my hubby (after drinking a few beers) did attempt to make my 30th bday cake and after eating it, my son informed me that the reason it had cake crumbs all over the icing was because his dad had dropped it in the floor and then tried to "glue it back" with icing. nice.

I thought the same thing as Jael (way up at the top) about being happy that the "artist" didn't try to recreate the exhaust. (Probably would have been in choclate, but let's not go there!)

And the only thing that comes to mind is "and me without a spoon." *strolls off humming the tune to "great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts..."*

Anonymous said...

Wow. I have no words...

(Except my little sister just pointed out that the non hitler-saluting arm is actually in a different position on the second cake than the first. Maybe it's the angle?)

Jasini said...

Actually, I don't think they are the same toys. Batman's limbs are in different positions, and the first car is smaller and shinier.

Of course, if the cake looked better, that wouldn't matter.

ForensicMama said...

This is horrifying. I had to show my husband.

@David and Sandy: I thought so at first too. But then I realized - who would have a pastry bag full of custard creme and a food-grade airbrush at home?
