Let Me Count the Ways

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Loyal Wreckies, I am positively giddy to share one of my favorite collections of wrecks with you today. You see, with "birthday" arguably being the second most common word written on cakes these days ("happy" being the first) I'm always amazed when Wreckerators spell it wrong. Which means I'm amazed a LOT.

Then I started wondering: Just how many ways can you accidentally misspell "birthday?"

Thus began my journey. And so far, it's had some surprising destinations, lemme tell ya.

First, there's the expected stuff:

Ah, the ol' two letter switcharoo. Probably the most common misspelling out there.


Ok, so they forgot the 'H.' Also extremely common. Next!


They forgot the 'R'? Ok, now I'm curious: Do you think we can find cakes missing every letter in the word "birthday"?

No?

Aw, c'mon, you doubting Thomases. This'll be fun.

Do I hear a missed 'T'?

Woohoo!

The "th20" in the upper corner is like the dyslexic cherry top on.


Now how about a missed 'H'?

Even better!


A missed 'D'?

Aww, yeeeeah. Now we're cookin'.


Let's get a little crazy. You think anyone's ever missed the 'Y'?

"Y" not?

Ok, but surely - SURELY - no one has ever forgotten to write the 'B' in 'birthday', right?

Right?

Right?

(Are you guys as excited about this as I am?)

Drum roll, please!

Ta-da!

Now that's what I'm TALKIN' 'bout.
(Also, check out the white roses masquerading as clouds. Impostors!)


Believe it or not, the only letter I've yet to see missed entirely is the 'I.' [UPDATE: Oh, and the 'A'. Oops. Sorry!] HOWEVER, I have seen this:

Poor Aaron.

And this:

That's some good clean fun, right there.

And would you believe we're just getting started? That's right, it's allll downhill from here. You'll have to tune in tomorrow, though, because John starts getting this funny little eye twitch every time I post more than half a dozen Wrecks at a time, and right now they're kind of bulging out in a way that simply can NOT be healthy. (His eyes, that is - not the wrecks. [Although, truth be told, some of them are kind of bulgy.])

So tomorrow, then. Be there, or be without amazingly hilarious misspelling of "birthday." And then where will you be?


Lia F., Lea G., Megan M., Keisha S., Diane C., Lex, Sandy, Erika K., Lauren, & Brian D., if you're keeping score, we're currently up to an imperfect 10. And if not, well, we're still up to 10.

hahaha these are hilarious. I mean, how hard is it to spell such a common word! (I just doubled checked this five times to make sure everything was spelled correctly.(

D Dennis said...

Wow. You know, I've always wanted a holiday named after me. I mean, how cool would it be for cakes to say, 'HAPPY DAWNDAY!!' Beth is one lucky lady.


wv: rediott (oh, come on, this one's too easy!)

What kind of rediott forgets the 'b' on a birthday cake???

Taylor said...

I'm surprised there isn't one with an "A" missing. I think a "Happy Birthdy" cake would be awesome.

Sarah said...

Hmmm...my daughter hates taking a bath with a passion. I'm thinking a "Happy Bathday" cake may be the ticket to getting her to comply.

WriteCards said...

Happy Birthsy? That missing "d" made for a double whammy there!

Any with the missing "a"?

WV: hooke . . . by hooke or crook, Jen and John will find every rendition of "birthday" in the book!

Nanny said...

How in the world could you leave off the B especially since there is SPACE for it????

Anonymous said...

This is wonderful timing. Tomorrow is my daughter's 16th birthday! Would I get the bad mom award if I went looking for a cakewreck for her party? *evil grin*

I bet the Bathday one was to convince a finicky child to bathe ;)

Michelle P. said...

Uh-oh: Epcot alert! (I hope I'm not the 49th person to make this comment....)

The "B" actually is there - it just flipped over for some fun with the rainbow sperm. Which takes this one to a whole different level - and the whole post started out as such clean fun. LOL

Martin said...

Regarding the cake captioned "Poor Aaron": In the decorator's defense, I HAVE encountered a couple of guys named Arun.

Charles said...

Are you sure that cake is for "Aaron?" I know someone who's name is "Arun." It's Indian.

genevra said...

What about a missing "A"?

Oh!
My mother made me a 'Happy Birday' cake once. Forty years ago, now. Thanks for the memory.

"Hello. My office wants to get a cake to celebrate Earth Day. Could you do something with a nice blue sky and clouds? Balloons ... sure that would be festive. Just write on it 'Happy Earth Day'. Right, 'Earth Day'. I'll pick it up at 11. Thanks."

caferacers66 said...

th20 LOL snort* OMG
great post..

Jasry said...

Well, the "B" was technically there. It had just flipped over on top of the balloon next to it.
Ew.

WV: immens
Those cakes were immens wrecks!

Kara Lynn said...

The dyslexic cherry on top is probably the best!!

Michelle S said...

I LOVE this site!

September said...

I hate to have to point this out to you, but you posted two different "H" cakes and no "A" cakes. I feel lopsided and incomplete now.
And seriously. How do you miss the "B" on a birthday cake??

jo said...

Happy Bathday is such a beautiful cake. Maybe they ARE celebrating the day the get clean, you know, like in the good old days when people got married in June traditionally because that is when they would bathe? or maybe they're water conservationists with friends who really want to encourage baths because of their, um, odor.

meanwhile, I don't see Aaron on that cake. Maybe they say he's the best daddy "around." And it looks like there's secrets messages written in the icing along the edges....

Bethday counts for a missing I. Just because they used a vowel does not give them credit for the WRONG vowel. and the one with the missing h was also missing t. "Birday" maybe they like birdwatching? bird hunting? bird eating?

wv: nogednes. There is nogednes in misspelled cakes.

Miranda said...

....there's so many things wrong with these cakes, I don't even know where to begin.

Anonymous said...

Arun is a real name... However, who wants to bet that first one was for Lisa?

sendingtheclowns said...

Just GREAT.
Here I *got up* after a night of not REALLY sleeping at ALL because of hearing odd & scary sounds and feeling spooked and edgy and in a foggy-headed, sleep-deprived mode RIGHT out of the gate
*takes deep breath*
...and now THIS.
All I can say is , So THIS is the kind of DAY it's going to be, RIGHT?
What I see on the last cake is "UR THE BEST ARUW"---which could be taken so many ways, like in a sarcastic tone, as though what they MEANT to say was: ("SO you think)you are the best, are you?"--which isn't even grammatically correct...so they couldn't POSSIBLY have meant that!
There are moisture droplets inside the cover of the "Bathday" cake.
Coincidence? I think not. And THAT is a scary thought, right there.
On the "th20" cake, I have been wondering if that might have been intended to be the name "Thao."
Why the heck NOT?!!!
~~~~~~
My personal fave:
"dyslexic cherry top on."
And that wasn't even ON a cake!!
THAT is the way YOU spelled
"making my day"! So, thanks!

=^e.@^=

jj said...

Sorry, Aaron/Arun, but it looks to me that this cake is for Beth, possibly to share with Aruw. And anyway, my money's on it having been ordered for Erin in the first place.

Anonymous said...

Today is my little girl's birthday. We plan to wreck our own cake later on.

But this spread of birthday themed wrecks is just right to get us in the mood to bake!

Dancingsmartypants said...

I used to think I was pretty computer savvy, but this one has me completely stumped. What the heck is the "wv:" some use at the end of their comments?

When I see WV, I think: West Virginia. Maybe these posters are just proud of their state... :)

I don't know why, but this really got me giggling uncontrollably (I have my not-enough-sleep excuse, mind you).
So forgive me (chuckle), but doesn't any cake (snort) start out with SPACE first... and, er, the letters put on accordingly?

andygirl said...

to be fair, maybe Bathday is a holiday in Bath, UK. Mwahaha!

Hee. As someone who has endured a Jewish upbringing, my immediate thought on seeing the first one was "is that a cake celebrating a Brit Milah!??"

For those fortunate enough to not be familiar with that term... well, just be thankful. ;)

That's great Wakko, but your A looks like a 2...

@Dancingsmartypants

I think the "WV" notes are when people read the 'words' generated by the 'word verication' part of their comment (the little nonsense word you have to input to make sure you're not a bot), and come up with clever definitions for them, usually relevant to their comment or to the post.

Hope that clears it up for you. :)

Anonymous said...

How on earth did that B flip over like that? It's still perfect and has no blue icing that I can see

Christina M. said...

How hard is it to spell birthday? Apparently, very hard. For the wreckerator, the person who wrote the order or both.

Bridgete said...

@DancingSmartyPants - It stands for word verification. Google's word verification is usually something that's not a real word, but is pronounceable as such, so people like to make up definitions for the fun ones.

Sheila Bennett said...

Really? It never ceases to amaze me how some people can actually be so 'unaware' of what they are doing. I guess they just really don't take any pride in their job.

Dancingsmartypants said...

Thanks Anonymous and Bridgete for clearing that up! It was driving me crazy...

I had no idea what "wv" meant, so I epandyned the whole idea of trying. :)

You know, it might really BE Bathday.

This all reminds me of the text of an old greeting card by Sandra Boynton:

Hippo birdie, deer ewe,
Hippo birdie two ewes.

KimM said...

I don't think the "B" cake counts, since the "B" from Birthday is actually floating away on one of the balloons (rather appropriately actually...LOL).

What does "th2o" mean? I haven't tripped across that one yet.

Maybe the "Happy Bathday" recipient usually takes a shower? Baths can be special occasions too!

Anonymous said...

Are these ones ALL professional? I mean I know it's a rule but seriously? I could lay icing better with my, well...any part of me really.

Edith said...

Way too funny! Thanks for the laugh!

Kaetchen said...

I think the next to the last cake was meant to say: " You are the best around." But who knows.........

sendingtheclowns said...

@CarrieP:
Actually, it looks like an "a" --in this particular font/typeface/whatever.
See? "a" not "2"
Anyway, there are bigger fish to be appalled at here, so we can agree 2 disagree, and c2ll it A d2y.

On the butterfly cake -- is it the 'r' that is missing, or perhaps a 'c'?

Kinda takes you on a different path...

flying gargoyle said...

Oh, now I've gone and done a spit take all over my desk. How can you pick a favorite amongst these? Thanks for a great post, you guys!

Sara said...

Hilarious!! I continue to be amazed as well. I Love It!!!

Lizziebeth said...

I rather like Bethday. I think I shall have to start celebrating this... (my name is Beth). Then I also got to thinking, one could add a "C" to the one with the missing R, and end up with Happy Bitchday. Yup, that would be good, too.

Lorraine said...

I read your blog daily, but don't post often. Just had to say that I laughed out loud today. My co-workers wonder what's so funny about numbers, but it's a welcome break! Keep up the good work!

Promise said...

I have to admit, that I have committed the "Bithday" error on a cake I made for my father. In my defense, I was 10 at the time and just starting to learn how to pipe cursive writing.

Mallory said...

On the one with the missing "B", the "B" is actually somehow stuck in the balloons to the left...so not a total wreck I suppose :)

CookieMonster said...

Not only were the cakes wrecks - each and every one of them - they also misspelled birthday. It's like the apathy applies to everything.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

On the happy birday diane cake, one of the balloon strings does not even lead to its balloon. That whole cake just screams "I don't. Give. A crap." Try a little harder! Use a capital letter for a proper name!

i believe the "th20" is a dyslexic version of "20th" ....hence the original comment!

great wrecks!!

celticmystyc said...

*Sigh* That's bad. This last Saturday I ran to our local Albertson's bakery to grab a cake for my daughter's 8th birthday. (I know I'm lame, but we've been painting the house, etc..blah blah) So, picked up a premade cake and asked if they'd pipe, "YOU'RE 8!" on it.
I got back YOUR 8...I looked at the cake and then looked at the woman and said "Are YOU sure you want me to take this?" She looked at me as if I was daft. So, I told her she used the wrong YOUR...blank stare. You need a comma and re... OH Light Bulb moment.

Brittany Blais said...

The cake missing the "y" actually looks photoshopped. I can see a blurry outline of a "y" a the cake.

Or perhaps the decorator spelled it right, then thought "Oh wait, there's no 'y.' The 'a' is long!" and then smudged the "y" out.

Anonymous said...

Looks like the bath day of he last cake recipient does not happen very often, & thus all their long suffering friends are celebrating the great occasion.

Kathy said...

OY! Whether that cake was for Aaron or Arun, I think the decorator started out sober(so pretty around the edges, no?)and had repeatedly hit the hard stuff by the time they got to the writing bit. Sheesh!

D.B. Echo said...

I can't tell you how many times I've heard it pronounced "birthay" - especially by the host of a local children's show that ran when I was a kid, who every morning would read a list of names and then wish them all a "Happy Birthay!"

Anjel76 said...

*LOL* Wow ... although, I will admit to laughing more at the mental image of his eyes bugging out. :O)

Anna said...

I also felt the need to point out that there was no missing "A" on any of those cakes..

Mellodee said...

@The Boob Nazi....I just had to laugh at your post. You may have checked it for misspelled words, but you still missed a WRONG word! You didn't "doubled checked" your post, you "double checked" it! Only one D for Double! Thanks for the laugh! :)

The butterfly cake would have been a beautiful cake if it hadn't been for the misspelling. Geez!!! I think some of these bakers might want to consider a career change, but then who would mess up cakes for our amusement?

On the cake with the missing B, it looks as if poor little B jumped onto a nearby balloon...alphabet acrobatics?

It's a sad, sad world.

Oh. My. Gosh. These are hilarious. As always Cake Wrecks, you have totally made my day. I will NOT be missing tomorrow's post!

Cheryl said...

Regarding the one missing a "B" - I think they actually misspelled Earth Day :)

Tricia L said...

I'm really starting to think some of these wrecks are a pro-am collaboration. Some are so beautifully decorated but have truly dreadful writing that I think (I hope) that someone bought them from the case along with a tube of do-it-yourself piping and went at it. I can't believe even Walmart (aka the Angry Bear/Mickey cake of yesterday) would allow someone that untalented behind the bakery counter. I would seriously question their sanitary practices.

Is it just me, or do misspelled cakes also make me wonder if they forgot... I dunno, to wash their hands or add eggs to the batter, or either, neither, both, something else 'forgotten', etc... Know what I'm saying here? It's seems more than trivial and makes me question the whole thing.
While there are drugs I can take for this sort of paranoia, I choose to come here, instead. ;)
Validation?... Anyone? BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHA!

Lindsey said...

When you mentioned at the top of the post you would try to find cakes with every letter missing, I thought you certainly couldn't find a missing B! I was pleasantly shocked that you actually did! As always, thanks for the laughs!

Witchy said...

My father is from New York and still has a bit of his accent; thus, each year on Dec. 30, I am treated to the "Happy Birthay" song. That sans-D cake? Shoulda been mine.

livingandthriving said...

Just HOW did they manage to forget the B in the last one???
I'd say now I've seen it all, but apparently there's more to come... that's actually kind of frightening when you think about it.

Beth W said...

Every day is "Bethday" in my house!

Nessie said...

First, the "dyslexic cherry on top," and then the missing "B." I think I just herniated my diaphragm.

Yiskah Sarah said...

To be completely fair the "Happy irthday" one DOES have the "B" it's just flipped over and on top of the yellow balloon on the left of the cake. Though, how they did that I'm just not quite sure.
Anybody?

“It’s a nice long one,” said Pooh, very much impressed by it.

Aliza said...

The "Happy Brithday" had me doubled over in laughter-- I kept thinking it was a mis-spelling of a "bris" (ie when Jewish boys get "snipped" the 8th day after they are born). The kid mightn't be so happy about it, but I guess he's not yet eating cake...

BADKarma! said...

Bear in mind that until rather recently, bathing was a twice-a-year occurance for most people, so perhaps that last cake is a harkening-back to a simpler time, when bathing actually was a celebration-worthy occasion.

Or not. (blinkblink)

Oh now I really and truly think I should NOT order my birthday cake lol. I still have two more weeks to go so I may be better off baking my own. That butterfly cake looks like one of the butterflies ate the T and the others are circling around the other letters. Happy Bathday.. boy I hope that wasn't a hint to the persons hygiene or lack thereof. Lovely to see the lack of spell checkers at the bakery.

I came here to point out exactly that and read through all 111 comments thinking "I can't believe nobody has pointed that out"... then the very last comment beat me to it!

It does look a lot like an "a" but if you compare it to the other "a" in "Birthday", you can see that it is actually a cursive "ir" that is squished up.

I found the B on the "happy irthday" cake. It fell off and is stuck on the yellow rose next to its spot.

Qatie said...

You know, out of all the misspellings I've seen on Cakewrecks, "th20" is probably my favorite. It's simple charm just strikes me as being even better than "Happy Falker Satherhood."

I mean, you HAVE to explain "Falker Satherhood" with drugs. There's just no other way. And drugs are sort of a boring explanation. But "th20" could be caused by anything, and it's fun imagining the possibilities.

Mikewind Dale said...

The first cake seems correct. It says "Happy Brithday", as in brith milah, ברית מילה, Jewish circumcision. Isn't it obvious? Little Lia, she's having a circumcision!

Scarlett Robyn said...

that is soooo funny!

Moon Bloom said...

I found the misssing B in the Happy irthday cake. It is flipped over onto the yellow "balloon" on the left! :D

Aliza said...

Mikewind: that was my thought too, except for one minor "technicality"... Jewish girls don't get circumcised! So it was either a mis-spelling of "birthday" that gets snickers from Jewish readers, or is even worse than we thought, and poor Liam's losing more than just his foreskin...

Mikewind Dale said...

"or is even worse than we thought, and poor Liam's losing more than just his foreskin..."

When I wrote "Little Liam, she's having a circumcision!", I had in mind what certain other people in the world do.

But apparently, "Liam" is a boy's name, not a girl's. Shucks; that really steals half the fun, doesn't it?

Sometimes I think these cakes are from foreign lands where English is not their first language and they are trying to spell phonetically and their accent gets in the way. Really...to test this theory go back and read the cakes out loud. See?

Ok, I don't agree with that last one being on Cake Wrecks. At first, I couldn't even figure out where the mistake was, and then I saw that it was possible to intrepret it as saying "Happy Bathday" but when I look at that, I can very clearly see the corner of the cursive "r". It looks to me simply that the I and r were piped too close together and the I wasn't dotted. But that's spelled right. Look at how it's piped. That's not how you do an A. That's very clearly an I and an R.

You said you didn't have any Earth Day cakes...I beg to differ. Just grab the "Happy irthday" cake for next year. Get it? "irthday!" :o)

There weren't any missing the A...

A ysdlecisc version of scionism, which is either a made-up word/version of the word scion or a bad misspelling of zionism.
