Syfy Sacrilege

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Look, it's a basic law of sci-fi, folks: YOU DON'T CROSS THE STREAMS.

[shaking head] This is wrong, Anony M.

So.

Wrong.

Im just going to go with "Look honey, the Storm Trooper and Bobafett are just shooting at the Enterprise... *nervous laughter*"

Katy said...

I was shaking my head before I'd even read the description!

Taylor@MyOlderBrothers said...

This reminds me of The Office episode where Jim tells Andy about Battlestar Gallactica just to bug Dwight.

"Story's kinda bland. It's about this guy named Dumbledore Calrissian who needs to return the ring back to Mordor."

Kristin said...

I love them both but THEY.SHOULD.NOT.MIX!!!

Proud to say that I have no idea what you're talking about. :)

I really like how they iced over the word TREK and wrote in WARS.
That is Klassy (with a K).
I enjoyed your Ghostbusters reference too!

Kimberly Chapman said...

Unless it's parody, of course:

Not that this one is.

Fluffy Cow said...

At least they said thank you. (Where are the lawyers when you need them?)

Naomi Zikmund-Fisher said...

Extra points for throwing in a 3rd movie on top of the two already pictured!

Zuuuul

Mary said...

Sad, sad, sad...my Star Wars lovin' son would have my head if I tried to pass that cake to him. These bakers needed the force -

Gary said...

Star Trek Wars?
I think a whole new series is a-bornin'.

S said...

Oh, just no.

Katie said...

Wow, that's just offensive!

Anonymous said...

Tigerwolf for the win! LOL!

RecoveringActor said...

The best part is that they COVERED UP the "Trek" part of the "Star Trek" sign with a poorly written "Wars." ::sigh::

At least they didn't try to create a poop Bobafett monster?

m@ said...

Big, big facepalm.

Jenn said...

There should really be a pop culture course administered for grocery store bakers. I mean, honestly. This is grade school level material.

:)

Olivia said...

Awww, that reminds me of when I was in high school, my mom made a cake with action figures: Darth Vader fighting Gambit from X-Men.

She had Gambit stabbing Vader with his own light saber.

It was the best cake ever. :,)

PinkCupcakeArts said...

The only thing that comes to mind is 'Oh NO They Didn't!?!?!??!?!'
That is just plain wrong on so many levels.

Viewtiful_Justin said...

OUCH! That hurts my brain. I think I'm crying a bit. Oh. Make it stop.

Dallanterial said...

I love the Thank You sticker on the plastic cover. It makes everything better.

sheesh. not only is that a basic rule of sci-fi. that's pretty basic sci-fi - star trek and star wars. I mean really? They really can't tell them apart?

Stephanie said...

Sacrilege is calling it SyFy ;P

Anonymous said...

Eh, Star Wars, Star Trek. What's the difference?

Cassandra said...

I am sooo very offended by this, they never mix. What was this baker thinking?!

The Black Dog said...

I have to share this with my friends, if only because they will either break down crying or the major logic error of this wreck will make their brain shut down.

Anonymous said...

it's sad that i had to read the comments to figure out what the heck the reference was....

Lisa said...

Wow, I'm just a casual fan of each and yet I'm completely offended.

Holly said...

Haha, the perfect cake for a sci fi convention!!

Heather said...

Did they think just because it was for a 7 year old they could just cover the trek with wars and he wouldn't notice? My 5 year old and his friend both dressed up as Obi one (no idea how to spell that I'm not nearly as into this as they are) for Halloween and then told everyone how to tell they were from different movies. The kid WILL notice!

jen bryner said...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! WHY???? WHO???? and...WHY???

Sabrina said...

That is unbelievable. I would cry if that were my child's cake.

servingzero said...

Tigerwolf: “A long time ago in a galaxy where no man has boldly gone before!”

Hahahaha, that is brilliant. Jen should "borrow" that and edit the post LOL.

My husband would have a coronary seeing that, if ever I mix up the names (I always correct myself, but wars may slip out when I mean trek) he just says "Ummm, EXCUSE ME?!?!" .....
..
...Which kind of makes me want to replicate this cake for him April 1st...

Le said...

Wow you can hardly tell they wrote over trek!

mark p said...

Whoever did this should be bound and gagged, and brought before two large groups of rabid Star Trek and Star Wars fans, all of whom have been issued aluminum baseball bats.

Stella said...

How come the last 'S' looks strangely like a 'T'?

GuitarroGal said...

I'm surprised the cake is still there. I mean, usually if you combine matter and antimatter you get an explosion large enough to wipe out planets...

Pangolin said...

Wow. I was going to give the wrecker the benefit of the doubt at first, for being ignorant of mixing the two. But then I saw the icing of Wars added over Trek...

*shakes head sadly*

Diana said...

Well, heck, they both begin with "star" and both keep geeks enthralled and away from anything as strenuous as social interaction of discourse. Both have created megabucks for convention halls and vendors.

Why not have a combined cake celebrating the fleeceing of the nerds?

But polite, anyhow. "Thank you"!

I sentence this decorator to the agonizer booth!

Anonymous said...

I am not a really hard-core scifi fan, but even I kind of want to boycott this bakery. This isn't just a serious lack of attention to details-- it's more like a blatant disregard for them.

That's probably not even the right name on the birthday boy's cake, and he's probably turning eight or nine.

Jimmy said...

This cake is leaving a bad taste in my mouth, and I haven't even gone anywhere near icing that color today.

LeftWingLock said...

No. Just...no.

Although if it means that bakeries are low on plastic flotsam, have to use whatever odds/ends are left, and their budgets don't allow them to restock...it may be a good thing.

In disguise. A seriously bad disguise.

That's not funny; that's offensive.

That's blasphemy!!!

Mandy said...

NOOOOOOOOOO!

That is just WRONG!

Lovin' your Ghostbusters reference, however. You rock, Jen!

(Heh heh, I can't help but chuckle at how they manually piped "Wars" over the "Trek"...amateurs!)

Layla said...

Wow, that was wrong on so many levels. I am not a huge fan of either, but I know that Star Trek and Star Wars don't mix.

Lorraine said...

Crossing out Trek and writing in Wars ... hhhmmmmm ... copyright violation by bakery? Probably not but ... just wondering. Any thoughts?

Deanna said...

I'm SO offended!

andygirl said...

Holy sacriligde, Batman!

Beverly Lynn said...

What, those don't all go together? :0)

Mira8 said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I want to smash this cake. SMASH IT!

(I too like them both but like you say, DON'T CROSS THE STREAMS!)

Jaye said...

I'm not going to lie, I'm a nerd. I like Star Trek more than Star Wars, and my fiance is the opposite. Both are good, but they are different and kind of like oil and water. I wonder what the recipient of the cake thought seeing that one. And to the iced-over Star Trek, baaaad cake decorator...

WV: nable

Just 'cause they're 'nable to do that doesn't mean they should :-).

Heidi D said...

I love the don't cross the streams. :)

I don't know if it's blogger, or the way the photo was put on, but I can't click on the picture without my computer trying to save it.

I usually click on them to blow them up. I can't see the detail on the cake, so I don't know what was mixed together. I will assume it's the typical Star Wars/Trek.

I am the queen of the run-on sentence. :)

S3XinthePantry said...

well you put all differnt kinds of sports on a sports cakes...if it makes a little kid happy I say go for it!

Stephanie L. McGee said...

We've hit a new low in geeky cakedom...*shakes head and walks away*

Goof said...

I'm a LONG time Trekkie and I like Star Wars too. Of course. I think its cute/funny but yeah, its just so wrong lol.

I want that toy Enterprise so I can put it on my own Birthday cake next year. :D But where can I find one?


((((HUGS)))) for all.

"Taylor@MyOlderBrothers said...

Oh my goodness - this is totally what popped into my head too!

So sad that they iced over the TREK and wrote WARS.

So wrong on so many levels.

Maybe the bakers just wanted to answer the age old question -- "Which would win: the Enterprise or the Millenium Falcon?"

Sacrilige!!

I might cry...

This wreck makes my head hurt and my heart sad.

Christina Ragusin said...

Just opened this and I gasped in horror and my jaw dropped to the floor. This is the most disgusting thing I've ever seen on your site.

Lisa T. said...

So I don't get it. I ask my husband and he explains it to me. I say, "So it's like if Barbie married G.I. Joe?" He says, "No, more like if G.I. Joe married Optimus Prime." And so I still don't get it.

Kerri said...

Wow. I can't even count the number of ways this is so messed up.

And I'm a devout Trekki AND Star Wars fan!

LutherLiz said...

Jasry said...

Ouch. My son would totally Force-choke that decorator.

Nooooooooo.....

*cries*

Hungarican Chick said...

OMG!!!!! This terrible, terrible mistake could possibly cause a tear in the space-time continuum!

Joshua said...

This is speculation on my part, but this cake looks to me as though it was done as an inside joke. This "correction" looks very intentional. Perhaps it was ordered way for a sci-fi friend who takes their sci-fi seriously? If that's the case, then the wreckerator did a great job.

Mejis said...

This is clearly SyFy blasphemy. Shame on the baker!

LeAnne said...

I guess I would not be one to decorate this cake. I do not know the difference and who each character is. But writing over words is a little sad.

did the wreckerator not think that the spaceship from a "Star Trek" decoration would probably be a
"Star Trek" ship and not a "Star Wars" ship? and that people wouldn't know the difference? oh the horror!

tigerwolf: i am rotfl at your comment!

Becky said...

I think the comments are just as funny as the cake...

hahahaha

Phyrra said...

Oh my god. That hurts to look at.

Dani said...

I had to laugh at today's entry because of a recent discussion on a board I frequent about who would win in a war between Star Fleet and the Empire.

This is definitely wrong on many levels ... especially the covering of Trek to make Wars.

Anonymous said...

I can't get that song from Eddie and the Cruisers out of my head, "On the Daaark Siiiide, oh, yeaaahhh..."

I think that's where this cake came from. Or where the baker's gone over to.

That "Thank You" is like putting a band-aid on my broken heart. :(

lisadh said...

Okay.
Speaking as a mom who had to find a Star Wars cake for her 9-yr old son this year, I know what happened.
There are NO cake kits for Star Wars available.
None.
Some sort of copyright thing with Lucas. And thanks to the latest (and awesome) Star Trek, there ARE kits for that series.

They should have done what I did: have the baker do that "spacey" background, come up with your own "Force" message, and plop on your own appropriate figurines.

Done and my son loved it!

With not a single sci-fi fan offended!

Score!

Han shoulda shot the decorator instead of Greedo!

Spicy said...

I don't get it. D:

Miranda said...

Wow, that is a MAJOR faux pas! You NEVER mix Star Wars with Star Trek, Trekkies and Star Wars geeks have gotten pretty violent and nasty over less! LOL Did the caterer or baker need security or police escort to get out of the building?:-P

That's all. Just 0_0

...because there are no words...

MakeCakesNotWrecks said...

To amp up the anxiety among the geeks even more, I'd add a "Lost In Space" Robot voicing his trademark "Warning! Warning! Danger! Danger!"

Daeni said...

If you mix Star Wars and Star Trek you get....

STAR WREK!!!!

Muahahaha!!!!!! (OK, maybe I need to practice my evil laugh more.)

Lindsey Lu said...

Points for Ghostbusters reference, too.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

It just occurred to me: This is a fanfiction cake. I am VERY VERY SURE that there is fanfic of Star Wars vs. Star Trek...and oh no, now I've done it. I shouldn't have said anything because now I'd love to see what people would come up with.

I'm also very sure that there are some stories that would be better than the cake...and vice versa.

(am a fanficcer myself ;P )

WV: Bedianon:

After going through the wormhole, Kirk stood up and looked around. "Mr. Spock, where are we?"

The Vulcan took out his tricorder. "It appears we are on a planet known as Bedianon."

A pair of robots--one tall and golden, one short and blue--crested the sandy rise in the distance, and Kirk gestured to them. "Maybe they can tell us more," he said, and he and his Science Officer set out...

=P

Lucille Ball Jr. said...

way to funny!

Red Wolf said...

The best part about this cake is that if you combine the names "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" you get....

"Star Wrek"

:D

What, no Tardis?

ericajoanne said...

I could have forgiven it if the "trek" on the plastic oval wasn't covered up. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. I cried a little.

LuLU said...

I forwarded this picture to a friend who simply responded with
"Abomination!"

Dan Lewis said...

My eyes are bleeding.

Cyndi said...

I would love some backstory on this. It just can't be intentional - even the most spacey (ha, see what I did there?) decorator would realize something was up when they covered the second half of the Star Trek logo...right?

*crickets*

Right?

Bek said...

Wow. Big time Star Wreck - and I'm not even a huge fan of either.

It really made me laugh though to see your title. Does it annoy anyone else that SciFi has gone all hip and become SyFy...? I thought we knew how to spell here, folks.

Anyway, back to enjoying the wreckage. Can't wait to show my husband this one later. (Jean-Luc was the foremost ornament every year on their family tree)

Little Lovables said...

wow! considering that extreme Trekkie fans wrote death threats to the actor Malcolm McDowell whose character killed Captain Kirk... I can only imagine the demise this cake will meet

Little Lovables said...

"this cake is just not logical"

I think somewhere, a Trekkie just died. Oh the horror.

Well... I read the words as "Star Wart" ... Maybe that explains something.

I always thought that Star Trek and Star Wars were of the same series of movies. It wasn't until my early 20s that I found out I was wrong. Needless to say, I've never seen any of any of the movies.

This is hysterical. You know the kid was all, "Dude, I'm not eating this because the Star Trek and Star Wars don't exist in the same space-time continuum and if I or anyone else eats that the worlds will collide and we'll all be zapped into anti-matter." Cuz you know, you have to be INTO that kind of stuff to have that kind of cake and if you were, that's how you would talk.

This is so, so wrong.

Instead of The Office I thought about Fanboys. There's one scene where the guys, a bunch of Star Wars fans, go to the future birthplace of James T. Kirk and cause trouble. A riot starts when 1 Trekker insults Han Solo and, y'all have to see the movie.

There was a disturbance in the Force and a ship full of Tribbles screamed when this cake was made.

I find it ... interesting ... that more readers of this site seem to be more offended by combining Stars Trek and Wars than were offended by any of the cakes featuring cannibalism, dismemberment, display of dissected human organs, genitalia, huge piles of excrement, dead babies, mutilated animals, diseased feet, swastikas, shotgun shells ... you name it. At least we've got our priorities straight.

Yes finally a cake with style. Love it, love it, love it!

Why is it called "Syfy" anyway? Is it Syience Fyction?

Stephanie said...

Yes, one might even call this a StarWrek...

Serena said...

I am so sorry you had to witness that. It's really heart breaking.

Little Luxuries said...

I object to the implication that this cake has anything to do with the Syfy cable channel; it has way too much science-fiction related stuff on it. Where are the dragons, medieval adventurers, serial killers, man-eating critters and ghost-hunters? ;)

Amy F. said...

That is wrong. Just so wrong. My husband said he's surprised that bakery hasn't had it's windows busted out with 20-sided dice ROFL

Tom, Lynette, and family said...

Shouldn't the Thank You sticker read I'm Sorry? Or are they thanking the family for not dumping the cake on the decorator's head? :) I mean really, if you don't have the stuff to do it right, just admit it.

Ellie said...

As a Star Wars, and Star Trek fan... I have this, and this alone to say: DEAR GOD WHYYYYYYYY?????

On a side note, I have never felt those two aspects of my personality cringe at the same time, at the same thing, and yet both yell "You're ruining it!" to the other side.

jeez, they even put figures from 3 different Star Wars movies. Boba Fett wasn't even born when Qui-Gon Jinn was alive. The clone troopers didn't show up till the 2nd movie! *aneurysm*

Cake Wrecks was just referenced (sadly not by name, but still) on "Have I Got News For You" on the BBC. I'm sure if you keep an eye on Youtube it'll crop up shortly, or else it will definitely be on BBC Iplayer for UK Cake Wrecks fans~

Silkydog said...

I've just watched Have I Got News For You, which is a weekly panel show in the UK where comedians make fun of the week's events, and... They mentioned Cake Wrecks! The host mentioned "a blog devoted to cakes that are unintentionally sad, silly, creepy or inappropriate" and they showed a picture of The Cake That Started It All! I just thought I'd tell you. :)

Sexy Sadie said...

You know what this cake needs? Star Bug from Red Dwarf!

"The FBI is infiltrated with are Lizard Cylons!"

FlashForward and Lost

"The FBI agent in FlashForward is that woman in V!"

V and Senerity

"One of Lizard Cylons infiltrating the FBI is the Browncoat Wash!"

I think we should see more of it. I think the underlying cakes should be combo flavors.
Chocolate and Vanilla. or
V for Vanilla and L for Lost.

Some friends and I once dressed as Star Wars characters to go see the premier of a Star Trek movie. That was an excellent way to piss of a bunch of other nerds. We nearly had our butts handed to us.

Good times.

Eegads, what have they done? XD I've seen that cake in my local Wal-Mart, sans Star Wars figures and that...classy...correction. It came out as a small children's party cake with the plastic enterprise and stand serving as the main decoration and an (admittedly unappetizing) airbrushed starry backdrop. But no Star Wars figures, and while it did rely on the plastic spaceship, it looked a sight better than this...thing.

I think somewhere, a Trekkie just died. Oh the horror.

Ya, and he was wearing a red shirt!

Lisa T. - you poor deprived child.

Amy - you are so right!

This was just too much to bear! Not enough OMGs or head shakes in the world.

WV: presten
as in "This is so wrong, my hands are presten to my eyes to stop the pain!"

Oh no they didn't! *cries* As a Trekkie I have a hard enough time trying to make people understand that Darth Vader did not try to destroy the Enterprise without cake people making it worse! Hehehe.

I actually laughed out loud for 10 minutes. I think I scared my fish..........

Reminds me of this Star Trek Fail and subsequent Win I found the other day.

Ok, I know they shouldn't mix, but do any of you Trekkies realize that R2D2 really IS in the new Star Trek movie? For real.

So, if George Lucas can get in on it, and have fun with Trek, why can't this cake?

Granted, the wreckers should have used their brains.

Thats one seriously misshapen Millennium Falcon.

This is THE most offensive cake I've ever seen. Seriously. If someone tried to sell me that I would smash it to the floor and stomp on it.

to Miki: So I am not the only one to have that song running through my head for the last two days!?!?! Wahoo!

For those of you who don't know this song it's by The Firm, called "Star Trekkin'" Look it up, listen, and laugh!

Almost as wrong as the fact that they started spelling sci-fi: "syfy" to try and make science fiction more trendy and universally appealing. Really!?

My husband simply stared at this one in mute horror...
