Ever Feel Like ----Thing's Missing?

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Ah yes, it's Mike & Louisa of the Perpetual Merriment.
(I bet they're morning people, too. Blech.)


Forget missing words - that "t" is a work of arT!

Also, do you pronounce "Rubye" kind of like ribeye? 'Cuz that's how it sounds in my head. (When the pink Snickers bar says it, anyway. The other voices haven't reached a consensus yet.)


"Welcome N J Bell to Virizan and"

And...?

And what? What?!? TELL ME!! I MUST KNOW!!!

Arg, this suspense is killing me! Why don't you just send Sheppard out on another suicide mission and make me wait six months to see if he lives or not? Huh? How 'bout that, funny boy?*


Oh, and speaking of suicide missions:

Who wants a slice of Adam's ca-aake? [sing-song]

Anyone? Anyone?


Sure, it's nice to know that "Kaun" and Jerry are happy, but I imagine this kind of word omission could lead to some rather, shall we say, misleading, inscriptions:

[shifty eyes] Er. Yes, kinda like that.

(It's short for RICHARD, people - and I'll leave any remarks about the (in)appropriateness of the decorations to you guys.)


*Yes, I do realize that cliff-hanger was 5 years ago - I just never fully recovered, is all.


Tracy H., Shelley A., Lori & Mary S., Chris Z., Bethany G., & Jennifer H, Good!

On that last cake, the decorations are necessary, to explain what happened to the first 59.

Aside from the errors they are all well made cakes-

marie said...

I think it was supposed to read "Welcome to NJ Bell and Verizon"

KatjaMouse said...

Hahaha, nice to see the incomplete "accidentally" meme step off of the interwebs.

Taylor@MyOlderBrothers said...

Let's start a comment war on the best comment that's obviously missing key words.

I'll go first:

I can't believe have the nerve to make cakes so.

ZipZiz said...

Adam's cake is referring to this: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/i-accidentally

That Queer Chick said...

@KatjaMouse: I know, right? All the need is another cake that says "The whole thing?"

Natballs said...

"We accidently ____ your cake"

This could be anything! It leaves room for investigation.

Jasry said...

It's just sad that the decorations on most of those cakes are actually pretty nicely done. I weep for the future... of cakes.

WV: bringie: Every day, this site bringie a tear to my eye. I must remember to bringie the kleenex next time.
(Yeah, I know, it was an easy one. I can't help that; I don't assign the WV!)

My cousin is named Rubye. Pronounced Ruby.

I thought that the last cake was for a plastic surgery doctor who performed his 60th female-to-male sex change. No? ;-)

Anonymous said...

Sorry Adam, we won't tell you exactly what we accidentally did to your cake.

And I always knew Dick was a tool.

Young at Go. I kinda like that. "You were young at go, man. You've always been young at go!"

Spicy said...

I accidentally this whole comment.

With_apostrophe said...

Kudos for the SGA reference! YAY!

Having joined the SGA waggontwo years late, I didn't have so long to wait, but I did have a fair stretch of time before I found out how survived the first (of many) such missions.

WV Twari: Missed a word when icing a cake? Not twari, you've provided Cake Wrecks with fresh fodder.

Terry Lee said...

was holding it together (except for your "ribeye" comment) until i saw the last wreck.

i have a few questions:

is dick a proper noun (as opposed to an improper noun)??

if so, is dick a handyman or does he just prefer tools (not that there's anything wrong with that)?

if not, why aren't there 60 screws on this cake?

just askin'.

Kristen said...

Is it really a cake wreck if it's just referencing a known meme? Hm!

Morgan said...

Arg, this suspense is killing me! Why don't you just send Sheppard out on another suicide mission and make me wait six months to see if he lives or not? Huh? How 'bout that, funny boy?*

Oh, you're not the only one to still be scarred by that.

Sometimes, I feel like I could be a cake decorator after looking at all these cakes.

Lisa said...

I know an older guy named Dick. He's a carpenter, too. Maybe it's his cake...

Aleda said...

I started watching SGA in the third season, so I *knew* he survived...and I was still traumatized. The later missions were just icing on the cake, as it were.

Anonymous said...

Maybe it was just missing the "l" and should have read "Welcome NJ Bell to Verizonland"

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Hey all,

Yup. The Adam cake is apparently some obscure meme. But it's fun to think of what they might have actually done to the cake accidently.

Oh yeah. And accidentally is misspelled so there's that. I guess this would be a meme wreck then...

andygirl said...

What exactly does "accidentty" mean?

ellemck1 said...

I ____ when they forget important _____.

Crystal said...

I really had no idea we were supposed to celebrate the number of..um...relationships we've had with cake! My bad.

Julia said...

I figure that one says "Young at 60." But it's a bad-looking 60, if so.

Poor Shep? Poor us. Where is that alleged Atlantis movie anyways?

Shep rules!

Dick is a totally tool! LOL

Anonymous said...

Re: the, er, "tool" cake-- just how many chances should Dick get, anyway? Isn't there a waiting list for stuff like that?


And as far as NJ Bell, Verizon and... sounds like another merger's about to happen they haven't the guts to announce yet. So if your job is found to be redundant, this cake's also your goodbye.

Erin said...

I love cakewrecks, Jen. You're the best. Turned my mood right around today. Thanks for the daily giggles! I've been a reader almost since the beginning and you never fail. luv ya!

Sarah said...

I accidentally a coke bottle. Is this bad?

Anonymous said...

Maybe that's "Happy Ben and Jerry." As in, "Get out the ice cream, we've got cake tonight!"


Just celebrating cake again, with cake.

@Blue: Well-made cakes? Are we looking at the same page? I wouldn't pay $1.99 down at wally world for a couple of those.

jennifer said...

The Welcome to NJ Bell and Verizon got me thinking.
I did not get a cake when I signed up for my phone service!
Did anyone else get cake with their phone service?
Or should I take it persoanlly?

Chris said...

Um, the third to last cake was clearly intentional. The 'accidentally (noun)' is an internet meme. =) Just thought you might want to know.

Michelle S. said...

I accidentally that post.

Jessica said...

Hey, now... My mom's name is Rubye, although this is the first time I have ever seen it spelled that way by anyone else.

Karen said...

Awww. I still miss SGA. Off to read fanfic and eat cake now.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

It's too bad--the first cake was rather pretty!

"We accidentally your cake, Adam." Oooookay. Accidentally...what? Dropped it in a puddle on the way here? Sneezed on it? The dog licked off the frosting and you had to redo it? WHAT?

Until I knew, I wouldn't touch that cake with a ten-foot fork.

Dan Lewis said...

For some reason I just pictured William Shatner yelling "KAUN!"

Siouxzr said...

Accidentty (noun) what happened to my rear fender when I accidentally (adverb) ran into a light post.

Lysambre said...

I so love when you make obscure SGA references ! <3 :D

It makes me glee everytime ^_^

Leesa said...

LOL! I alternate between laughing at the cakes and despairing of all the bad cake decorators out there!!

Your book, btw, was great and the friends who got copies for Christmas liked it too! Just thought I'd mention it whilst I was here!

And yay for SGA! Though for me it was the next season's cliffhangar that got me! I mean, Rodney trapped on a hiveship?!!! And I had to wait several months for the resolution?!!! Argh!!!

But then, I am a semi-rabid McKay fan!!! *vbg* Though Sheppard's cool too!

Anonymous said...

SGA!?!

Oh my gosh Jen
I love you.

Anonymous said...

5th is karen not kaun, but still confused on what they are happy about... maybe that it is Karen and Jerry and some fella named Kaun

~* Aria *~ said...

The "We accidentally your cake" is a bit of geekish/meme humor, so that was either on purpose or a hilarious coincidence.

Rubye is a snowflayk spelling of Ruby.

That first cake is actually really pretty. Too bad someone frakked it up.

The last one is a birthday cake, but pretty damned funny considering the birthday guy's name! How does one get the nickname Dick out of the name Richard anyway? Or Peggy out of Margaret?

Katie said...

I accidentally the cake is a lie.

Scarlett said...

Oh, that last one is just naughty...

Becky said...

Or we could just crash-land the entire city in the San Fran bay and leave it floating there indefinitely while the Wraith are still tearing up the galaxy.... *grumbles* I'm still bitter that SGA got canceled in favor of SGU, because it's just not nearly as fun!

And I hope that someday I can still be young at go like Rubye and Eddie.

Miranda said...

It's very serious, Sarah. Very serious indeed.

The only way you can fix it is by commemorating it on a cake.

tracy said...

I submitted the first cake from my brother's wedding and I do have to say that, despite the wreckiness, the flowers were beautiful and it was probably the best tasting cake I've ever eaten.

Dot said...

Oh my god that last one, especially paired with the tools. I guess that is an important milestone in any young man's life...

Momcat said...

Since "Young at Heart" usually means "really old, but still moviing," does "Young at GO" mean they are so old they need diapers? AND...how many nuts can a Chucknuts chuck?

Anonymous said...

The tool cake is cute. The name Dick on ANY cake is unfortunate, however.

Anonymous said...

Um, yes, it's still a wreck even if it's referencing a known meme (although unknown to me until today) because "accidentally" is spelled wrong!

What's SGA?

Jimmy said...

Happy Kaun and Jemy! Is this a new holiday I haven't heard about yet?

Graceful Moments said...

My guess is that it was supposed to be Verizonland. I'm omitting the remainder of my comments in honor of today's cake topic.

Anonymous said...

could the last one be celebrating some kind of new prostitute's goal?

just wondering....

maybe she gets a raise in her rates...

Anonymous said...

LOL I like the idea that it's supposed to say "Welcome NJ Bell to Verizonland" to celebrate some kind of merger where Verizon dominates. What would Verizonland be like? can you hear me now?

And Happy Kaun (Karen) and Jerry what? Happy anniversary? Happy birthday? Happy 3rd Tuesday of the relationship? Happy successful crime spree? Happy hookup? Happy successful rehab? Happy meatloaf? WHAT ARE THEY HAPPY ABOUT?

Bryan said...

I didn't read closely enough; I thought you were waiting for Cmdr. Shepard (only 1 "p") to go on a suicide mission in Mass Effect 2 instead of waiting for SGA to start up again!

Anonymous said...

A word of caution if you think you spot a wreck because of a mis-spelled name. Sometimes it's not the decorator who can't spell, but the parents...

I speak as someone who had a young girl named Gorgia in my class once.

SGA! I am still upset they canned it....and where IS that movie they promised us?!? Anyone....anyone....Bueller?

Anywho, my fave today is "young aT GO" Hee! I think it is a "subliminal" cake for someone that is unwelcome....wasn't there an SNL skit about Subliminal Man....

Jill Pole said...

Watching SGA on the computer, right before the series ended in a two-week stretch eliminates the worries about Sheppard dying- but man, does that boy love suicide missions. Kind of like Janeway in the first few seasons of Voyager- always activating the self-destruct.

That said, I was literally on the edge of my seat at certain points during The Siege. That's never happened before. I love SGA and I miss it- someone above said it best- Where is our movie?!

...SGU is just not as fun.

Had an aunt called Rubye... it happens. Oddly enough, it's pronounced 'Ruby'. Weird.

Amanda said...

The "we accidentally your cake" is definitely a geek reference :D

But I love the last one! Happy 60th Dick! How many does a guy need, anyway? haha!

Gary said...

Rubeye is more formally known as conjunctivitis. Too bad the wreckorator left out the first "e."

Gary said...

Hey, Crystal:
When you get ready for "Happy 100th," I'll make you a cake with tools all over it, OK?

Or, if it's already too late for that, maybe your 200th? Your 500th?

Rachel S. said...

The accidentally one is actually pretty funny. It's not an unfinished one, though, so I don't see how it belongs here.

(For anyone who has no idea what I'm talking about, look up "I accidentally the whole Coke bottle". And study up on your internet memes already!)

usiylover2 said...

Hi there. That second cake is like that on purpose. I know, I know, it seems strange, but it's a meme.

"We accidentally your [x]" to which you respond;

"Accidentally what?" and then they say;

"Your [x]"

See?

Maybe not. Look it up.

Rachael said...

The cakes were actually pretty nice this time around. I think I would go for a "...thing missing" cake as long as the cake itself wasn't screwed up. It would be amusing. I would demand a discount though.

And on the comment about that episode, the second you said it I knew what you were talking about. One of my all time favorite shows.

Your comment about Adam's ca-aake made me laugh til I cried. Thanks, I needed that!

Stargate: Atlantis is MADE OF AWESOME. I keep starting over at the beginning and trying to watch straight through, instead of skipping around, only to be horribly traumatized by the Genii. Nobody tortures John but John!

Ah Jen, I thought I loved this 'blog before, now I know that was only a shadow of the true love I could have for Cake Wrecks. *sigh*
I love you, you great big geek!

Teresa from Sweden said...

I absolutely adore you for making (a little bit weird) references to Stargate: Atlantis ... (And I am even happier that I get them!)

And me, too, would have been devastated about that suicide-mission-thingy if I hadn't watched the entire series on DVD. (Just for the record.)

Anonymous said...

The "I accidentally" with no proper finish is actually an internet meme. It's kind of nice to see it making its way into the world of pastry.

Marianne said...

loooove the accidentally cake!

Sam said...

Looks like that first one may have been requested as 'Happily Ever After To Mike and Louisa', maybe the wreckerator is into cryptic crosswords and read into it a little too much?

Diana said...

Frankly, "young at Go" waas wht I found most interesting.

(yes, I know it's supposed to be a "60")

Jenn said...

Great cakes!! Love the Stargate reference. I'm an old school SG-1 fan myself. Not like SGU at all :-(

Trixie61 said...

Dick is a tool.

thereddawnofbubblygoodness said...

Young aT Go?

Aviatrix said...

I just realized that the first one is the opposite of your book cover cake: in that case the instruction "underneath that" was misinterpreted as something to be written in icing, while in this one the 'after' of "Happily Ever After" was misinterpreted as an instruction as to where to put the names. They're lucky it didn't say "Mike & Louisa To Happily Ever."

Sarah Walsh said...

I'm surprised that first cake doesn't say "Mike and Louisa to Happily Ever"

Y'know, because the order said "Write on the cake: To Happily Ever *after* Mike and Louisa"

Get it???

Jen,
It appears from your issues with the names Kaun and Rubye (you say ribeye, I say Rubye, Let's call the whole thing off ...), that you and I share an absolute disdain for the current trend in "unique spellings". I used to type up the birth announcements for the local newspaper and, through the years, this problem grew to astronomical proportions. I think Katelyn/Caitlin/Caytelynne, etc. is the name that started it all. Your follow up to Cake Wrecks should be a web site called Name Wrecks ... and we'll start with Jaxon. (Disclosure: My son's name is Riley but the boy on the next street is named Ryelye - not kidding. I used to pronounce it like Jai-alai)

Kate said...

Huzzah for SGA! My love for Stargate: Atlantis has no bounds, much like my love for cake wrecks.

Amanda said...

What happened to the first 59 Dicks?? What makes the 60th one so special?

Claire said...

I've never - NEVER! - posted here before, but that Atlantis reference was priceless!

Mr. Becksfort said...

*sigh* Stargate Atlantis. I miss you so. Thanks for staying real for all your viewers Jen. We like knowing that blog writers are funny geeks too:) you do a great job EVERYDAY!

Lori said...

The Verizon cake was my mom's and was supposed to say...drum roll... "From NJ Bell to Verizon and Beyond" to commemorate the company's name change and celebrate a get together of Verizon employees old and new. Welcome.. AND WHAT!?

Anonymous said...

I'd finally convinced myself that I'm entirely too attached to my favorite SGA fanfiction site and should go find something else to surf. Hey, I thought, there was that cake blog. And, suddenly, the cake-girl is talking about Sheppard too. I shook my head, blinked my eyes, reread, thought "Naa, can't be SGA". Kept reading. Yup, she meant Col. Sheppard. Sigh, How bizzare. I can't escape.

As for the movie, I read on IMDB a few weeks back that due to the economy some projects were being "indefinitley postponed". The SGA movie among them (sniff).

As for the cakes, oh yeah, almost forgot about them. Got a little side tracked...

Is that a Stargate Atlantis reference in MY Cake Wrecks?

Chris (Mombie) said...

John Sheppard is delicious. No wonder he's on a cake blog.

Waiting for the outcome of that mission was horrible. :)

My friends and I are so geeky that we're making t-shirts for a sci-fi conference that say:

(Jan's) Hey Carson, wanna play doctor?

(Katie's) Call me McKatie.

At least there's one for each of us.

Actually, the "accidentally" cake may not even be an accident. It's a relatively well-known internet meme where a person will say the fragment "I accidentally *noun*." Might just have been a cake for someone internet savvy.

... YES!!! I am I am NOT crazily obsessed!!! I saw "Sheppard" and, being the Stargate geek that I am, thought, "Colonel Sheppard!" followed quickly by a feeling of disappointment when I concluded it likely wasn't the one I was thinking of. So I checked the reviews just to be sure. ^^ But it WAS who I was thinking of. And now, I can happily share that I began watching it late in the game. I bought the entire first season on DVD, without ever having seen the show. Just to show you dedication to my fandom. ^^' But I found I preferred it to SG-1. You should have SEEN my frantic scrambling when I reached the end of the season. Within 16 hours I had located the second season online, for free. I just had to navigate the Chinese script to watch it. :P NEVER underestimate the power of globalization and yahoo.
