Please Decorate Responsibly

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Tonight, while you're out ringing in the new year, please be considerate of your fellow cake lovers.

Please, don't drink and decorate.

Don't let this happen to someone you love:

(Lest you incur a pox on your crudely drawn wine glasses!)


Thanks to Jan F., who plans to confiscate everyone's piping bags before serving the champagne tonight. Good plan, Jan, good plan.

T-i-me (to) Celebrate! I had to hunt down and then sound out the words as I read, like I was watching Sesame Street or something!

So with that mystery solved, what's a taco-headed stick person got to do with anything? lol Don't drink and decorate, indeed!

Happy New Year guys. Thanks for a fabulous blog.

funny

jess said...

oy.
Happy New year, thanks for making me laugh all the time.

Phoenix-Karenee said...

Ti ... Me ... to ??? I thought of a poorly spelled "tomato" for a moment, till I adjusted perspective for New Years. "Time?" Hah!

Time to celebrate by scraping the muck off the cookie so it becomes palatable.

Wendi said...

It took me 5 minutes to figure out that wasn't a Mai-Tai. And now I'm thirsty.

Happy new year!

Lori said...

I'm mostly worried about those dotty things in the "drink" - no way would I imbibe something with floaters in it! Happy New Year Wreckies!

Wow, I had to read the anonymous comment to realize what it said.

Wow, are the spots on the glass from a lack of Jet Dry in the dishwasher, or are they supposed to be bubbles in the champagne?

Thanks for making me feel better about my decorating abilities (so far I haven't found one of my cakes up here, but there's always 2010...)

Love you guys!!

I'm glad I wasn't the only one trying to puzzle out the Spanish on this cake... :facepalm: :-D

I know what the taco's for-- in college, there was a taco/burrito stand that was open until about 5 a.m. It was only good if you'd had too much to drink, but the price was right.

Happy New Year-- and thanks for your great blog!


P.S. No, that place was not called "Taco Bell." XD

I too thought this was a Spanish cake! Ti me celebrate? Then I saw the "to" and it was as if the light bulb turned on and it all made sense.

Happy New Year to all!

I was also trying to figure out "ti me" in Spanish! That's funny. I saw "Ti me" and a margarita glass.

mn_me said...

OMG, if I hadn't read the comments I'd have never figured out what it was "supposed" to say. I could read the word "celebrate". couldn't find the word "to" initially. had to go back for a second look.

The chocolate chips and the white "bubbles" in the glass just don't look quite so great together, do they?

Thanks for a great year of cake-wreckery, Jen and John! Happy New Year.

This is no time to be celibate!

Don't drink and decorate, that's funny!
Hope you have a Safe, Happy Healthy New Year!

Julie said...

While you're confiscating those pipe bags could you also take my dad's bagpipes? He plays them (badly) every year.

Happy new year and thank you for the hours of procrastination fodder :)

Rattlesnake said...

Ti me celibrate to. :nods: Yep, it all makes sense.

niki said...

and I'm with the rest on trying to decipher the Spanish, finally figured it out. Great blog, have been loving it and spreading the word!

Fluffy Cow said...

I get it!!! ti-me bubbles!!!

HA HA HA....

no?

Diana said...

In a difficult year (globally, individually, and for you two personally), you have caused me to blow coffee through my nose onto my key board, provoked me and my partner to spend far too much time lingering over the cake display case in the grocery store, and given me a place to bond with a particularly resistant step-daughter a place to bond (thanks for the Twighlight cakes!)

Here's to Jen and John's continuing good health (and bent sense of humour!)

Cheers
Diana

It's pronounced 'Teh-ah-tim-eh.'

Caitlin said...

Is it just me, or does the whole thing look a bit like a blue-maned lion?

feathergirl said...

Ti one on me? Happy New Year's.

Lorry said...

Calling that a wine glass seems uncharacteristically and undeservedly generous. ;) It looks much more like a taco-headed armless stick man, or maybe even a bird bath.

NanaCat said...

having a slightly off color mindset when reading this I saw Ti me to celebrate.... handcuffs.... scarves..... anyone else or am I the only sicko for the new year?

diddims said...

It looked far too much like "Me Celebrate" at first; does Tarzan celebrate New Years?

Volcano said...

You're not alone, NanaCat. My first thought when I read "Ti me" was something bondage related.

Anonymous said...

took me a while to figure out what it was trying to say. and that badly drawn glass, the strategically located chocolate chips--that "glass" looks like a stick figure of someone with an oddly shaped head and a face full of acne medicine.

Anonymous said...

amazing how much variety of interpretation what badly made cake can make...

spanish, bondage, tarzan speak...

Becky said...

Heehee, this one totally reminds me of my Kingdom of Loathing days...level 37 bad martini, anyone?

Melissa (& Billy) said...

Methinks the folks in the bakery had already started celebrating early!

"Ti-hic!-ime...to...hic!...cele-hic!-brate...There. S'done. Happy New Year!! (hic!)"

Wide Awake Wife said...

I have a bad habit of drinking while decorating (at home of course!), which gets interesting at the end when I have to do the inscription...with words..spaced correctly....and spelled right too.

eyeglasses said...

Hysterical! Maybe that person needs reading glasses... or cake spellcheck.

If only there were 2 eyes drawn on it! Then it would look like a sad bear too!

Cupcakes Lady said...

A glass of small pox....lovely! lol xx

It could be worse. I thought it said "Time to Celebate". Haha.
