Easter? Is That You?

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

There's a wide range of acceptable Easter motifs these days. Lilies, eggs, baby chicks, crosses, bunny butts - there's just all kinds of stuff to choose from.

So tell me, then: What exactly is this?

An Easter...Pig?


Or how about this?

Pink Cat gives you wings! Literally.


Hm. I'm starting to think we should offer bakeries animal flash cards.


At least then they'd know to put "bunny" in quotes.
(Check out how the right one is looking at the label. Heehee!)


Somebody please tell me this is not a cross:

Although if it's not, then the alternatives are looking pretty alarming. Yowza.


Oh! Speaking of alarming religious cakes: I've yet to see a smoking lamb cake this year. I'm still holding out hope, though. And in the meantime, I did spot a few chocolate cigarettes on this "Easter flowers" design:

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but on a cake they sure alarm me.


The madness continues into the cookie section:

There are no words. Only lots of snickering.


And lastly, we have the gold standard of Easter designs:

The bug bunnies.


Jennifer T., Katie G., Steve, Taylor B., Teryn C., John M., & Shelli A., just tell them to take a left at Albuquerque. Oh, and watch out for those "sprinkles."

Gingerbread men with bunny faces and carrot ties. That's just awesome.

The Boob Nazi said...

hahahaha this post made me genuinely laugh out loud.

laura beth said...

I have to be honest... I think the easter pig is kinda cute :)

Pat said...

The bunnies in a box look like lambs to me.

Classic Steve said...

I think the "pig" is one of the Care Bears.

everythingisjustwonderful said...

Maybe that's just their take on the baby carrot jockey cake. Bunny heads on carrots?

WriteCards said...

Oh my. That Easter Pig (ahem, can we say Easter ham with a straight face?) looks like a pink fluffolumptupus . . . or however that might be spelled . . . or even pronounced!

I'm so far from a professional baker that it's laughable. However, my homemade butterfly cakes for my daughter's birthday last weekend puts these things to shame!

Christina said...

I think the 'pig' is a care bear. And WTH is the second one??? I suppose 'winged cat' is the closest bet.

VeggieT said...

wow, the "bug bunnies" looks like a clever plot by the carrot jockeys to come into our land unnoticed...

Anonymous said...

PS: I have to add: does noone else see that the gingerbread "men" are performing indecent acts on the poor little bunnies?!?! Or am I just that twisted?? -Sue, Canada

subourbonwife.com said...

The pink cat intrigues me. Even if it in any way resembled a bunny, I'm wondering who would want to eat a cake with feathers on it. Seems like you'd cough up a hairball afterward.

Jennifer in MN said...

I think the bug bunnies look more like a bunny grave yard....but that's just me ;)

Eternal Helpmates said...

That first cake is the Wester Hog. All these years I had thought my Dad had just made the Wester Hog up. But now proof that he is real after all, who knew?

Bob, Meghan, Bella, and Lola! said...

I think the second one is the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Isn't there a part in the cartoon where he makes that face?

Sarah said...

An Easter pig is really pretty appropriate, since Christians believe that Christ's death and resurrection freed us from the law, thus allowing us to eat pigs. I vote we adopt this as a new symbol of the holiday. Christians can use it to teach doctrine, and everyone else can have a cute (if somewhat bizarre) pink animal.

D Dennis said...

Oh my, my, my, my, MY! That cross brings nothing but the most UN-religious of thoughts to mind. Definitely need to go spend some time in church now...although I fear I will never be able to look at a cross the same way again! Thanks, Cake Wrecks. Happy Easter to me.

A Girl In Her Kitchen said...

We shouldn't really be surprised at the cigarette cake. It is a CCC after all! And think about it, a cake celebrating the "Easter Ham" could be worse!

Naked Bunny Carrot Jockies!!!!


The Babies have competition! I'm sure bunny breed faster.

Nikki said...

Oh no. The "sticks" on that "sticks and stones"/easter "flowers" cake look like tampon applicators!!

Eric Stott said...

That Cross cake- am I the only one who thinks it's made from two p*nis cakes with the balls together?

Gary said...

Maybe that's kind of a funky-lookin' mesusah instead of a chocolate cross.

@Sue in Canada--not only did I see what you saw, but I heard Monty Python singing "Sit on My Face" in the background. Kathy in Kansas

Becky said...

Got to love the bunny sprinkles!

Scarlett Robyn said...

Lol! I especially liked the last one.
Thanx for being funny as usual!

Becky said...

That first bunny is definitely a Care Bear!

D Dennis said...

No, Eric. You are NOT the only one.


WV: After seeing that chocolate cross, I'm feeling a bit 'squenli'.

Ayla Zachary said...

Oh gross, FEATHERS on a cake?! Feathers are totally dirty and mite-ridden! Now, I'm no cooking expert, but even if they've been cleaned and bleached, I doubt that any companies produce food-grade feathers.

Lauren Borquez said...

Umm wow..wow wow wow

Trevor said...

Seriously, that last cake? Those aren't bugs, dear. No, no, they really aren't. But what I see makes me snicker and snort.. And puts my mind in the gutter.

Emily said...

I thought the last one of "bug bunnies" could have possbily been Jesus in a borrowed tomb......

Marie said...

Loved your last comment. Too funny.

Jasry said...

I thought "Poo bunnies!" instead of bug bunnies, but either way, it wasn't pleasant. None of these were.

Witchie said...

By the way, those "lambs in a bunny box" actually come that way. They're pre-frozen cakes that you can order -just- for easter.

You can get eggs and bunnies as well as lambs. So obviously, -someone- goofed it up by putting the wrong cake in the wrong box, but it probably wasn't that store's cake decorator. ;)

Anonymous said...

Is anyone else concerned that the lamb on the "cross" cake is probably one of those SOLID BUTTER LAMBS???? That's a whole stick of butter on TOP of a cake.

Cathy Read said...

Hmmmm, Bunnies aspiring to be carrot jockeys huh! I don't think they're trying hard enough! Where's the mohawk hairstyle?

Chantal said...

This does not make the cake better, but the "cross" really looks like a typical italian easter cake. It is called Colomba and is supposed to look like a dove, symbol of peace. It looks like this: http://www.gingerandtomato.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/144_47.jpg
But I don't think you are supposed to decorate it like that.

Aubrey's Outlet said...

The bug bunnies are quite interesting. But perhaps the most disturbing this...in is that in order to serve this cake you must decapitate the poor things.

I am . . . said...

The second-to-last one, the bunnies and carrots... I agree, we have a new one: BUNNY carrot jockeys. Hot dang, maybe they are making them on purpose? No... we're not that lucky. Thanks for my morning chuckle!

SuperKlutz said...

Best. Wrecks. Ever. They take the WTH to a new level.

Flipping hilarious, thanks for the laughs. My fave is the fluffy-winged kitty cat. Seriously, what were they thinking? Are the wreckorators trying to get on CW now?

Fluffy Cow said...

I kinda like the bug bunnies...

Christina M. said...

At first glance, the first one looked like a pink care bear. Not a very well done one, I admit. The others are just...disturbing....

Emy Jo said...

The Bug Bunnies sort of look like rabbits in sleeping bags. Maybe it's an Easter Bunny sleep-away camp training facility?

Suzanne Dargie said...

Yeah...I agree that the "Easter Pig" is a Care Bear ...but not a bear...one of the Care Bear's friends. You know...like their lion friend named "Lionheart" or their elephant friend named "Strongheart" or whatever. I guess the pig could be called "Cholesterolheart"
The second thing with the feather ears must be an alien version of a bunny. Some sort of critter from "Lost in Space" or something.
The "Bunny Cakes" with the plastic lamb faces are yet another example of people slapping "plastic flotsam" on a cake in a pathetic effort to cash in on some sort of holiday/event that they know or care nothing about.

cyn said...

The last cake looks more like a bunch of butterflies with their wings ripped off... =(

As for the gingerbunny cookies, I guess the bakery made too many gingerbread men over the Xmas season. Instead of being wasteful by throwing them out, they just revamped the decoration design! Now THAT'S resourceful!

GoryDetails said...

The chocolate - thingie - reminded me of one of those folding omelet pans (example here), which just makes the lamb-in-the-middle even more wrecky. [Although now it's making me imagine other Easter-themed omelets; Peeps, perhaps?]

Al, Wendy, Max, and Lil said...

I think the "cross" is actually the famed Easter Dreidel. The rest of the "wrecks"...Fantastic!

Shea said...

"Easter Pig, Easter Pig, Does whatever an Easter Pig does..."

Seriously, that last one was spit-take-worthy.

"I'm starting to think we should offer bakeries animal flash cards."

LOL

those bunnies--snug as bugs in rugs. they look like they're having a campout in sleeping bags. another interpretation of Bugs Bunny perhaps? Is it raining orange sprinkles? if those are supposed to be carrots they're eating, why are they mutant sized? and why are some, er, PHALLIC (look on the left edge).

they look like scared little ghost bunnies.

The Easter pig is cute, but he's a pink pig. at Easter. with a nest. and he looks like he's eager to devour what's in it.

Jen said...

I thought the first one was a Care Bear at first.

Anonymous said...

ooh. the pink coconut crusted cat is scary. nasty long claws. or scared--the coconut makes his little pink fur look like it's standing on end. the wide fruit loop eyes. the feather wings--is he going to heaven? what? that's supposed to be a bunny with feather ears? yah. whatever.

um, the clover leaf/fleur-de-lis hybrid cross looks like it's covered with little tiny bones. and the sheep looks a little frightened. is this the graveyard for sacrificial lambs? and is that dove a scavenger picking at the bones? or is he bringing the lamb the message of his doom?

the logic of cigarettes on the messy CCC garden escapes me. as does my appetite. what a lovely shade of green. *turns green*

Those cookies are inexplicable. a gingerbread cookie? with a tiny plastic flotsam bunny? eating a huge carrot? after obsessively compulsively "hiding" eggs in plain sight on all four limbs of the cookie? could we at least have TRIED to make it look like there's some grass here? instead of a muddy flat? or is it SUPPOSED to still be a gingerbread man sacrifically pinned down with jellybeans and a bunny on his face? really, wreckerator. this is a mockery of the crucifixion.

"Not my gumdrop buttons!"

Julia Spencer said...

The gingerbread maker had his head in the toilet. (or was watching a porn while decorating...) Either way... I'm not sure who would buy those.

Mella said...

so the blue bunny is sitting on the face of poor neglected christmas left overs

Anonymous said...

@Ayla. never fear. the feathers are pink. nature does not produce pink birds and in order to make this a stock cake, they'd need a supply. think fake feathers from a craft store.

but it's still gross. who wants feather tendrils in their icing to accidentally swallow? and it looks AWFUL

You have never heard of the Easter Pig? I am from South Central PA and he is a big deal here. The Easter Pig visits after the bunny has hopped through and eats the chocolate out of the baskets of the bad children. Kind of like Santa leaving coal in the stocking. The Easter Pig only leaves wrappers....

Pamela said...

I've never seen South Park, and still the first thing I thought of on the last one was, "Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo with bunny heads."

I'm not sure if that says more about the cake or me.

Nothin' says Easter like cigarettes with the egg hunt! (perchance was that cake made in tobacco country?)

Voltaire said...

The gingerbread/bunny things actually reminded me of Donnie Darko. Which still isn't very Eastery...

greeblygreebly said...

"think fake feathers from a craft store."

Are there fake feathers? I always assumed that craft store feathers were real feathers that had been dyed.

As far as the lamb on the cross it looks to me like a sloppily done plane.

lunchbucket said...

That pink cat? I don't know why he's wearing wings, but that's Rosebeekee the Magenta Hamster.

He's the really little pink guy in the following video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqeLf3oAGLo

This was a real show.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

The first one looked like an Easter Care Bear. Cute, but not exactly what we're looking for...

The demented furry cat/bunny thing just scares me. Not only are there feathers on the cake (ack, phooey!) it's going to feast on the souls of whoever walks by.

The bug bunnies...THEY'RE HATCHING...RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!111eleventy

schmaimz said...

Great Googamooga!! hehe... what the heck is the pink cat really supposed to be??

I love this site, I feel better about every mistep I've made on a cake because (so far) none have come close to some of the wacked-out creations on here.

I may keep a picture of the cat at my desk for giggles... and somehow I've got Sheldon singing 'soft kitty' in my head now.. purr purr purr :)

Stacie said...

I must have an Easter Pig cake! My Dad always used to sing "Here comes Porky Corkscrew Tail, hopping down the Piggie Trail, hippity-hoppity, Easter's on its way." Made the traditional Easter ham that much more disturbing . . .

Katherine said...

regarding the "easter flowers" with cigarettes (or tampon applicators. . .) cake, why is there an alarming number of randomly lopsided CCCs (ptooie!)? it's not that hard to make a kind of regular shape with cupcakes. it's kind of sad how lazy you'd have to be to look at a group of randomly arranged cupcakes and say to yourself: "that's kind of a rectangle shape. if you're not looking at it too closely - good enough. where's the vat of icing and tub of unappealing decorations?"

lisadh said...

That bunny/kitty feathery thing is just the most absurd thing I've ever seen. That made me laugh for quite the long time. Hilarious!!

Great work, Jen! LMAO!

Lapis Kelinia said...

Feathers on a cake will make me wretch. The person who mentioned hairballs got it right.

i think that pink thing is really the pink evil bunny of death (with really fuzzy ears). i mean just look at those claws!! and i'm totally not understanding the bunny heads with gingerbread bodies. nope, just doesn't compute.

An Ode to Cake #2:

Wreck is the thing with feathers
That perches on the plate
And sings the tune without the words
And cannot hear you scream.

And sweet on the tongue is tasted
And sharp must be the knife
That could destroy the little huh?
That kept me 'wake at night.

Culinarychiq said...

OMG I'm DYING LOL First of all tossing Fizzgig into a tub of pink dye doesn't make him an Easter animal! (cake #2)

The look on the "bunny" cake's face is priceless, "um... baa?"

Of course that's not a cross, silly, it's an advertisement for Easter Airlines and look, they'll fly your pet lamb for free!

Adriana said...

The "cross" cake is actually a Colomba Cake. It's know in Brazil (because of the Italian immigrants). It symbolizes a dove (I know you have to use your imagination a bit) and the coming of the Holy Spirit. Here's a picture of a classic Colomba: http://tvtem.globo.com/banco_imagens//canalnews/%7B376B4B09-1E42-45CE-8FDC-A7662AF0E099%7D_colomba01.jpg

The cake tastes almost like a Panettone (classic Christmas cake in Italy) but it's a little lighter.

OK, now that the serious part is over...

Pink Cat with feathers??? I want to see someone come up with an explanation for THAT! haha

unbeausaumon said...

I like how people think that if they put lots of sprinkles on the cake it will fix it or make it look better.

Nat said...

I think Chantal is right. The cake resembles the italian "Colomba" (the "Dove"). Traditionally it is not chocolate covered, but recently they've been produced in different ways.

http://www.notonlypizza.com/2008/03/22/colomba-symbol-of-peace/

http://www.barpalummo.it/shop/img/colomba%20pasquale%20al%20cioccolato%20big.jpg

I still don't get the lamb, though.. Did the makers really think it was a cross and tried to symbolize the "Lamb" on the cross?? I don't know...

Steve the Pocket said...

I dunno what you're seeing when you look at that "cross", but I'm seeing an unexplainably brown pantyliner. The kind with "wings".

And is it just me, or is that last cake topped with the "prancing pink bugs" in Rasputin's lair from Anastasia, who sing backup to his song "In the Dark of the Night"? To quote what the Nostalgia Critic said about that: "..........FAIL!"

PotsyinAZ said...

I'm with Trevor...those last things aren't bugs in my mind's eye! Yikes!!

D Dennis said...

Nope. Even with the Colomba explained, it still looks like a *close your eyes kids* a double-sided dild0.

Speaking of Monty Python, @Kathy in Kansas, the demented feathered bunny is clearly a relative of the killer rabbit in Monty Python's Holy Grail. I would be very afraid to have that on my Easter table.

I, too, saw Mr Hanky in Easter Bunny garb (multiplied many times) on that last one.

#3. Again... HUH!
#4. Okay, I'll tell you that "It's not a cross." But really, it is. A cross between a migraine and an acid trip.
#5. Packaged display of what was just swept up out of the gutter. (Niiice.)
Or possibly an employee *inside joke*.

1. I thought the Easter Pig was cute. And reasonably spring-ish. He may stay.

2. o/` Mad kitty, clawed kitty, little ball of cake... sticky kitty, freaky kitty, bake bake bake... o/`

3. @tessa: No. Pretty sure everybody noticed that.

4. I'm glad to know that shape isn't supposed to be a cross, but my first thought was "Easter dreidl!" too.

5. So much ugly about this cake, I don't even know what to say.

6. Easter declares its victory, dancing atop the fallen bodies of Christmas!

7. Everybody's so concerned about their "bodies," but what about these bunnies' FACES? They look like the kodama from Princess Mononoke! Or bowling balls. They might be bowling balls.

In summation: WOW. That is a lot of wreckage right there.

The 'cross' cake is a traditional Italian Easter cake. It's meant to represent a dove... which, I suppose, makes it a fail anyways. These are probably commercially produced cakes that have been iced.

No thats not a cross but its probably a dove. Not that it makes it any better.

I agree with all the people who say the "cross" cake is probably a badly-decorated Columba cake, but I still think it looks more like a sanitary towel than anything else. Ewww.
