To Be Read By Rod Serling

Deedeedeedeeedeedeedeedee

You unlock this bakery with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension.

A dimension of icing.

A dimension of piping bags.

A dimension of wreckitude.

You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of bad taste and even worse skill. You just crossed over into...

The Twilight Zone.

BUM BUM BAAAAAHHHH...

Picture, if you will... a monkey. This monkey:

I know, creepy right? [shivering] Brrrrrr. Totally.


[resuming serious announcer voice] Ahem. Now picture, if you will, five ravenous-yet-dim-witted Shih Tzu dogs:

[sternly] Let's call them Muffy, Boopsie, Precious, Buttercup and Mr. Snuggles.


Now picture, if you will, a face of terror that watches in malignant silence far beyond your present capacity to understand. A face enigmatically bizarre in terms of time and space. A face...

...of a tweety bird.


Now picture, if you will, Meerkat Zombies...raising the roof.

"What up, playah?"

This is the stuff of fantasy, the thread of imagination, the ingredients... of the Twilight Zone.

BUM BUM BAAAAAHHHHH... SQUEEDLEDEEEE!!!

Jennifer P., Matt N., Christine S., and Melanie L., picture, if you will... a dolphin eating a Snickers bar in flip-flops and a cardigan. Then tell me what that looks like. I've always wondered.

- Related Wreckage: A Cake Wrecks Salute

Note: A couple of people suggested the pictures should be in black and white which was an awesome idea. So we changed them. I think it adds to the ambiance, don't you? For those who really want to see the full color versions, click here.

UPDATE! LeAnna and Woobie took up the dolphin challenge and sent in their ideas.

First LeAnna's:

AWESOME! Check out the flip flop thongs on his flippers.

And next we have Woobie's
See, the snickers bar is wearing the cardigan and flip flops because I apparently have no grasp of sentence structure. ?thought Who would have

Touché!


One more!
This one's from Vanilla Smoke. Awesome!
The Boob Nazi said...

Oh my gosh. The Shih Tzus are hilarious.

And I laughed aloud at the Meerkat zombies raising the roof.

Deirdre said...

Whatever icing tip it is they use to make the poo swirls needs to be banned. Immediately. Nothing good has ever come from that icing tip. Unless of course they planned for the meerkats to look like they're standing in big piles of poo. In which case, see the "nothing good" comment. And what's up with the display case that Tweety monstrosity is in?

Bakingdom said...

OMG! You kill me Jen!! I love the little pause from the Rod Sterling-esque voice over to comment on Monkey Face's creepiness!!

Excellent Twilight Zone set up...I could actually HEAR the music in your "SQUEEDLE DEEEE!" I love that I can count on you for geekiness as well as laughs!

Bakingdom said...

Oops. Okay... "OMG! John, you crack me up!!" And so on and so forth!

;)

Anonymous said...

aw, but aren't those bows up the pups just "precious?" (are those blueberry facial features??)

scary tweety with the toilet paper shaped head behind a "rain streaked" window. very effective.

WHAT are those scary swirly blobs in front of the meerkat twins? the remains of other meerkats? meerkat poop? rocks? do we want to know?

love the execution of today's theme. great commentary!

peaches1111_00 said...

Oh man...you really can't make this stuff up.

And why do all the dog cupcakes look like something is being shoved up their bums? I mean, look at their eyes.

Anonymous said...

OMG, the monkey's watching me!

wv: pinge- the pre-cringing sensation you feel just as you are logging into what you know will be another great cake wrecks day.

cakeburnette said...

What in the world is that in front of the meerkats? Entrails? Poop? *shuddering*

Lisa said...

I wouldn't so much call the monkey cake a wreck. Its really well done. You can't really help what somebody orders.

Meerkats are creepy and I won't defend them ever, though.

WriteCards said...

Huh? I have no clue as to what your last line was about . . . Snickers eating dolphin?

What was the question?

Oh, wait, nahhh, I still don't get it.

I don't "get" those cakes either. Shiver indeed (and not because it's 15 degrees outside . . . Fahrenheit . . . but at least it is supposed to get up to 68 tomorrow. Only a 53 degree difference!)

WV: trayett. If at first you don't succeed, trayett again and again and again until you finally get it right. Especially if you are a wreckerator!

Anonymous said...

Do you suppose Tweety had to pay extra for the sauna treatment? and what in heaven's name are those meercats sitting in?!

wv-okedd- Which bakery supervisor okedd these creations?

mydogumentary said...

Are those meerkats hanging out in their own piles of doo-doo? Yuck!

Alison said...

Am I missing something? What's wrong with the monkey cake? I see that the others are a bit.. weird.. looking. But the monkey face cake looks like a monkey's face..

Anonymous said...

Thank the Lord I work at home because I busted out laughing at the Meercats "raising the roof".

Those dogs and Tweety would tramatize me though. Normally I hate to cut into nicely made cakes. These would have me hacking into them the second I got home.

Alison said...

Am I missing something? What's wrong with the first cake? I mean I see that all the others are a bit... weird. But the first one looks great to me!

Half Assed Kitchen said...

The Meerkats and all their poop is the most disturbing thing this Seattle girl has ever seen.

Anonymous said...

Eeek! Meerkat poo!

SugarPunk said...

Ahhh. the meerkat zombies, dancing in the entrails of their victims. (Braaaaaaaaaaaains.)

How delicious.

Anonymous said...

The monkey seems to have a beard...

First prize to the meerkats, though. The wreck is bad enough, but the commentary just about floored me. You've outdone yourself, Jen!

And I'll be honest, I thought the Shih Tzus were cute. Clearly, I have no taste. ;)

Anonymous said...

Hello people! The monkey cake doesn't have to be poorly made to be a Cake Wreck, it just has to make us giggle. However well done it is, it still looks a little creepy!

Terry Lee said...

creepy creepy cakewrecks today. love the TZ theme/commentary!

'cept when we were kids, we sang the intro song as: nee nee nee nee, nee nee nee nee.

potato, potato.

great post!

Creepy Cake Wrecks narrated a la Twilight Zone? You just made my morning.

Elizabeth said...

So, Tweety has a little friend with him, a little penguin, which doesn't make any sense!

I'd have to agree with others comments....What's wrong with the monkey cake? Looks like a monkey to me! Maybe I'm missing something???

Kristers said...

All bizarre and funny--except for the monkey face...which is just downright creepy.

Can you imagine cutting into it and EATING IT? With it LOOKING at YOU?

Miranda said...

omg what the crap is this crap? Why are the meerkats standing in a nasty manure pile? *gags*

Katrina said...

If that fist cake is suppose to be a Chimp, then it's not a monkey, it's an ape. Monekyes and Chimps are two different animals

Cakelady72 said...

The meerkats look like naked mole rats sitting in a field of moldy poo.

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

*sigh*

*sigh*

Yes. The monkey cake looks like a monkey.

A creepy,

creepy,

monkey.

Who's judging me...

like you people...

Alright, comments yesterday were hard enough, I'm not doing them today. Anne-Marie? They're all yours.

john

deromanticize said...

While the last three are more wrecky, the monkey face actually creeps me out the most. There's just something really off about it.

Trevor said...

You know, the first one really isn't that bad, IMO.

but the Zombie Meerkat's? Priceless!

VeggieT said...

I could hear rod in my head!!!! deedeedeedeedeedeedeedeedeedee... just sayin'

madrobins said...

What are the Zombie Meerkats standing in? It looks like a lawn filled with...I dunno. The corpses of slugs, maybe?

Shudder.

kimberj said...

So is that a baby meerkat massacre at the bottom or just meerkat doodoo??? Love this site. Forwarded to a cousin who is a cake decorator, she checks it every day after work.

Jayne said...

OH TERRORS!!..I am so afraid of monkeys and that one is, EWWWWWWWW!!

The Smart Cookie Bakery said...

I agree that the Monkey cake is creepy.

I also loved this post! I could totally hear Rod Serling narrating it.

~Elizabeth aka Lacquered Lizard said...

The Musical score that accompanied this post was the best part. Thanks for the morning laugh. :)

Clevegal42 said...

Ha! I almost wet my jockeys at the meerkat "What's up playah!" I chuckle almost everyday at these materpieces, but this one made me laugh outloud. Thanks for the entertainment!

Carolyn said...

Monkey cake rocks! No knocking the monkey cake!

The doggies are sooooooo cute!

Guenevere said...

The meerkat zombies appear to be sitting in piles of bird poop. Or are they merely the remains of the brains that the meerkat zombies have eaten? We shall never know....

Anonymous said...

It was nice of the Meerkats to leave behind (or from their behinds) Meerkat presents on the cake....

Deanna said...

I kind of like those cupcakes! :D

Cathy Read said...

Is it me or is there an awful lot of ghost poo in that last cake?

Marcy W. said...

As ever, your (John & Jen, collectively) awesomeness shall reign supreme. LOVE the Tweety. The set ups alone make me laugh out loud, and then we get to the money shot. THANK YOU!!!!


WV: cableeri - That Tweety was cableering at me.

Krista said...

Maybe this has been pointed out before, but upon reading this: "dolphin eating a Snickers bar in flip-flops and a cardigan" ... I just had to wonder, does that mean that the Snickers bar is wearing flop-flops and the cardigan???

Tiffany said...

Wonderful Twilight Zone, John!

And Tweety is REALLY disturbing... he looks "vewy, vewy angwy"....

I'm going to hide now.

Love you guys!

Cher' Shots said...

OMG the meerkats just kill me! It looks like they left a "scent" trail across the cake! Yuck!!!!
I do love this blog.

Rod Serling said...

Shouldn't these pictures be in black and white?

Becky said...

I love the Twilight Zone narrator voice. John and Jen, you honestly make my life better with this blog. <3

Natalie said...

I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of in love with the meerkats...

Liz said...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this just took all the sexy out of Rod Serling...:-(.

girlnblack77 said...

_Best_Post_Ever.

Miradwyn said...

The first one looks like the village idiot from a Planet of the Apes movie.

lynellenyl said...

The monkey is definitely unintentionally creepy and therefore, a perfect example of a wreck.

At first glance, I thought Mr. Snuggles was dead (the bows look kind of like Xs on his eyes) and Boopsie and Precious are sticking their tongues out at me.

I've never wondered what a dolphin eating a Snickers bar in flip-flops and a cardigan looks like, but now, I always will.

Your post made my day!

Anonymous said...

"Meerkat zombies raising the roof" was funny enough, but "What up, Playah" turned them into JD and Turk... even funnier!

One of your wittiest posts yet! Hilarious! The Tweety Bird had me gripped with horror!

Oh! This was JOHN? What a great husband Jen has!
By the way.....That monkey is CREEPY!!!!!

This might be the best post I've read yet on this site. Hilarious!

Excuse me all of you judgmental cake snobs! I happen to have been the person who ordered the Meerkats wading through a swamp of sewage and dead fish. And I think the bakery did a SPLENDID job!

MarieA said...

that's a lot of meerkat poo......
Tweety is going to scare little children everywhere, and the Shih Tzus would make my shih tzu run away from cake forever.

monkeys? can't even imagine.....

Caroline B said...

Tweetie Pie? Really? Brrrr!!!

As for the meerkats & their dirty protest, after being saturated for months by the most ghastly car insurance commercial here in the UK featuring animated Russian (I kid you not) meerkats, I'd be happy to take a large knife to them.

..and thank goodness it wasn't a monkey's paw, the face is scary enough!

Hobbit said...

So far my favorite CW post of the year! I also had Rod Serling in my head the whole time. Yikes!
And, yes, the monkey cake was just darn creepy. Those eyes! Staring up at me! Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

The Gravekeeper said...

Gah! That "Tweety" cake...them's are soul-staring eyes! IT KNOWS MY SECRETS! KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

maidofclay said...

I think the Meerkats Squeedle-Doo'd all over their cake. Or would it be Squeedle-Did? Hmmmm... The conundrums provided by these Wreckerators will carry me through the day.

Think. Think. Think.

:) and laugh!

Anonymous said...

@Miradwyn--
I was thinking about Planet of the Apes, too. I do not want a cake that makes me think about that. If I look again, I'll have nightmares tonight, probably.

Tweety looks like he is covered in little bits of colored tissue paper. Hope someone gets him right one day!

Pooh's Pics said...

EEEEEeeaaaaaaaa.......the meerkats! **shiver**

My brother's gerbils killed their young once and THAT is exactly what it looked like! The parents standing over their recently decimated young!

AAKK!

It took me almost 30 minutes to stop laughing so hard.
My mom had to come in and ask me if I was okay. I couldn't answer her. I just pointed and laughed even harder XD
Seriously, the funniest post to me.

Heidi said...

Those Meerkat's are way to proud of themselves for the "mess" they left in the grass.

That was a freaky post.

Heidi D said...

Looks like the meerkats have a bunch of poo piles too. I know now that imitating poo on cakes is a desirable skill on Cake Wrecks.

Tweety Bird was cool too.

I am also here to invite you to enter my blog contest. It's the same one I had last year. It's Box of Awesome time again. It's free and welcome to all! Just thought I'd extend the invite to my favorite famous blog friend that doesn't know me, but I still check her out everyday. :)

Absolutely FABULOUS commentary today! I could hear Rod talking and the scary music playing throughout. The meerkats made me laugh out loud, and I have to watch that since I'm at work.

Thanks, John, for providing a wonderful, bright spot for my morning! And I won't judge you at all, this post was way too good for that :) .

As always, you guys rock!!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm with Krista. Is the dolphin wearing the flip-flops and cardigan, or did someone dress up the snickers bar before feeding it to the dolphin?

Giana said...

I think I'm going to have nightmares about that monkey, I couldn't even scroll down, I just sat there while it sucked out my soul through the computer screen. And when I was finally able to scroll, I had to go back up, just be sure it was real.

Lorraine said...

Picture, if you will, me, barfing on your shoes. Muwahahahahaha!

Aviatrix said...

I love the meerkat zombies and the heaps of rotting flesh at their feet.

Is it wrong that I actually find the shih tzu cupcakes kind of cute?

But horror upon horrors, what ARE the roof-raising meerkats wading though!? (***ohmygoddon'tanswerthati don'twanttoknow)

Samantha said...

So far, one of the best posts ever! I laughed so hard I choked!

Janus said...

Why would the Snickers bar be in flip-flops and a cardigan?

The funny thing (or perhaps the scary thing) is that you nailed Serling perfectly in the writing. I could hear his voice narrating this entry as I read it.

Sharna said...

Wait!
I recognize that Tweetie!
Remember the Loony Toons episode where Tweetie gets the Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde potion and becomes Tweetie Hyde? He's enormous and kinda... square... and looks an awful lot like that cake!
Or is it just me?

Boomka said...

My first instinct when I saw that monkey cake was to punch it. Like If somebody had plopped down a monkey cake next to me I would have shrieked like a girl and donkey punched it. TAKE THAT MONKEY CAKE! Also, my first instinct with the ShiTzu cake was to throw them, individually. What is it about creature cakes that makes me so violent? I might have issues.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

I would say the gorilla/monkey cake is appropriate; it reminds me of one of the scariest things ever shown on TV--'Terror at 20,000 Feet', a Twilight Zone episode where a gorilla-like creature terrorizes William Shatner.

Like that episode, these wrecks are enough to make me scream and run away!

Anonymous said...

im going to have such horrible nightmares tonight. OMG.

anglnlmbo said...

Oh good - someone else thought of Planet of the Apes with the first cake. I couldn't look away. I was waiting for the next cake to be the head of the Statue of Liberty.

Meerkats - I loved the "What up, Playa!" comment. *rofl* SOOOO appropriate. I would love to know what the exact order was for this. So awesome.

jedijson said...

Do the meerkats look like they've got incontenance issues to anyone else, or is it just me?

Not one. Eew.

Anonymous said...

The shih tzu cupcakes are actually pretty cute. Except the one on the far right... I think it's time to take that one to the vet.

The "Tweety" cake will give me nightmares. But since I like zombies, the meerkat cake might have be kinda awesome..if only they didn't poo in the grass.

Melanie said...

I had a bad Tweety experience when I was young. I was nearly over it. Now I'm not. Thanks Jen.

Dorothy said...

Aww, I kind of preferred the color pictures - the wreckiness of the meerkats is a little lost in the B&W.

At the same time, I don't know if it really NEEDS to be wreckier. The shiny, glistening gobs of icing entrails of their previous victims...it's like "Meerkat Manor" gone wrong.

Elizabeth said...

The monkey actually looks like one of the masks from the episode of the same name. Kind of like the one the old man made Alam Souse wear. Creeeeeeeeeeepy...

Anonymous said...

I know you changed them to B&W upon request, but is there somewhere you could like the color versions for those of us who came late to the party?

ksaldria said...

What? No Chesterfield advertisement at the end?

The set up to this post was beautiful. Rod Serling is made of win.

Aurora said...

Impeccable commentary today, John! I laughed for five minutes about zombie meerkats raising the roof.

And to the naysayers, imho that monkey cake falls well within the slopes of the Uncanny Valley. Creepy indeed.

Naomi said...

So... all of the pictures that I pulled up, when I followed the link from FB today, came up in black and white on the cake wrecks page... Is this happening to anyone else? Color is so importing when viewing these glorious samples of stupidity!

Mellodee said...

Actually, the correct "words" to the Twilight Zone theme are, "Doo, doo, doo, doo,doo, doo, doo, doo"....oh wait, that just opens the door to more pooh stories....hhmmm.... never mind! :-)

Seattle Mama said...

I could hear Rod Serling's voice in my head so clearly that salad nearly came out of my nose when Rod said the names "Muffy, Boopsie, Precious, Buttercup and Mr. Snuggles".

Me! said...

I probably won't sleep tonight now. Thanks.

Can't See Sheep said...

Absolutely love the Twilight Zone commentary & the b&w photos, too fab!

Tweety & the monkey frightens me. The Meerkats are creepy, did they gut something or someone? I'd feel safer with the Lord of the Flies cake that was up a few months ago.

WATERBABY CHRISTINE said...

@ Naomi -

"Note: A couple of people suggested the pictures should be in black and white which was an awesome idea. So we changed them. I think it adds to the ambiance, don't you?"

The B&W change is brilliant, but now you REALLY can't tell what Tweety is supposed to be. The color was the only good clue on that one.

This was a great one....cake twilight zone....zombie meerkats, creepy shih tzus with adorable names :). Now, let's see what else I've missed....

Jerry said...

I can hear Rod Serling, good job y'all.

The monkey is a little creepy, probably because he looks so smug. Tweety though will probably haunt my dreams.

I have nothing but love for the meerkats. I want that cake for my birthday. Raise the roof, playa!

Natalie Franz said...

The roof! The roof! The roof is on fire! We don't need no water...because we're meerkats.

Heather said...

that. was. hilarious.

Anonymous said...

Can't imagine that dolphin will enjoy the snickers bar after picking the chocolately little sweater and flip flops out of his teeth.... That's one way of getting more fiber into his dolphin diet, though.

It's probably a good thing the shih-tzus look deranged. Otherwise, I'd feel guilty eating something cute.

Your narration was spot on awesome. Serling would be proud.

That Tweety cake reminded me of the Jekyll and Hyde short where Sylvester dreamt that Tweety kept mutating into a cat-eating monster.

I doubt that was the intent of the cake.

Am I the only one reminded of the meerkat scene from 'Life of Pi'? I won't quote it (so as to keep everyone's breakfasts safely in their stomachs), but it involves meerkats, biting acids and lots of entrails. Oh, and human teeth. (But not to leave you with the wrong impression: it's an awesome book.)

The creepy Shih Tzus are adorable, by the way.

The black and whitre images are very stylish and work well with the Rod Serling-inspired lead-in. However, in my opinion, the meerkats are even creepier in color.

I actually knew the accent mark was incorrect but I didn't know how to do it the other way. So after 6 hours of research, and four calls to the vice president of Google, I finally got it.

Genius, just genius. Squeedle is now my new favorite word. And the Snickers bar in the cardigan and flip flops? My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard! Best post ever!

Even on the colored versions, the poo blobs surrounding the meerkats looked like either that of someone with cirrhosis or dog-do that has been in the sun for a long time.

Awesome post, from beginning right through the dolphin update. One thing particularly disturbed me, though (and it makes me feel even weirder that I'm the only one it appears to have bothered). At first, I thought it might have been just an effect of the Rod Serling "ambience", but after I couldn't resist clicking through to see the color versions for comparison, I realized: Those meerkats. Actually. Are. Zombies!!! Poster after poster seemed more concerned with what they were standing in - what I want to know is, who requested meerkat ZOMBIES?! AYEEEEE!

WV: "ressette" - What I wish I could do to my memory after seeing those zombie meerkats and that creepy, creepy monkey... ;-)

I am totally pleased that I get to be the first one to say this:


Those aren't flip-flops... they're flipper flops!


Ba-dum-bum!

Only till my natural death could I tell which of what I have been doing is right or wrong, so now I have to try to do well in everything, and then wait to die a natural death.

This is so silly and funny. But it's so cute and adorable. I would like to have my cake like this. This is just so fantastic. Thank you for sharing it

why do all the dog cupcakes look like something is being shoved up their bums? I mean, look at their eyes.
