Wreckies of the Month

Saturday, May 1, 2010

It's time again to recognize those loyal henchpersons among you who have created something truly Wrecktastic this month.

First up, some of you may have noticed this in your daily comics the other week:

(Check out more Brevity Comic Strips here.)

Well, it turns out that Guy actually IS a Cake Wrecks fan, and this was his tribute. Excellent! Although, Guy, I feel I must point out that you spelled everything correctly. [shaking head] Tsk, tsk.


The famously infamous Darth Vader Baby Shower Cake continues to inspire many of you in your at-home Wreckerating. Here's Jenna's version, made for a fellow D&D group member:

"Welcome to the dork side." Heh. Aheh. Heh.

Oooh, and speaking of Wreck-inspired homages: Listen! Do you smell that?

Jennifer N. got these fabulous Ghostbuster cupcakes from her friend Ashley for her 25th birthday. As you can see, Ashley mixed in some of this tragic Wreck along with the correct "no ghost" symbol. So. Cool.

Another great baby shower homage from Mary N.:

This is quite the combo! Let's see...there's It a Gril, In pink, the belly cake, the C-section cake, and of course the world-famous carrot jockeys. Whew! Pretty sweet!


And lastly, Danielle M. earns the Best Wrecky Babysitter Award for wrangling all of the neighborhood kids she babysits (Shelbie, Maddy, Ashley, Abby, and Jacob) into a Cake Wrecks sketch:



My favorites include the magically transforming sidekick, the "patooie" at :51, and of course, the ending. Daniel had the kids perform two other Cake Wrecks posts, too: the Cake Head Diet Aid and The Twilight (Wrecking) Zone. It's most gratifying to know the next generation of Wreckies is assured. Good work, Danielle and minions!

For the rest of you, keep those e-mails coming! I may not post everything you send in, but I thoroughly enjoy laughing at admiring your photos, videos, and general geekiness.

Absolutely adore the video. Well done girls!

montuos said...

Actually, for gamers, "Welcome to the Dork side" is very likely to be a deliberate reference to Dork Tower.

Renee said...

Those kids are awesome! I can see some Cake Wrecks videos in my daughter's future.

Nancy said...

I give the video two thumbs up!

cmgreen1208 said...

Cute video! And that belly cake has so much going on, did anybody even realize they spelled GIRL wrong on the top?!

Mags said...

LOL!! Great video!
Love the DORK SIDE - so many layers of funny in that one!!

And that C-section cake - WH-AT?!!! Who thinks of having a hand popping out of an incision?! YIKES!!!

"now enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot." HA!!! Love it.

LoremasterSTL said...

Just. Wow. The "Dork Side" cake is up there with my wife's relative who named his daughte "Aeris", from the Final Fantasy VII character.

(And not "Aerith", for you FFVII purists out there. :p )

And yes, the Dork Tower reference can be assumed, but I doubt that it's a reigstered trademark.

agm@sent.com said...

Wow. You have a cult of geekish followers, eh? :) Epic, CW, pure epic-ness. You've unleashed a beast that has inspired the world to a new level of (un)excellence and...huh..."creativity". Totally awesome!

I'm actually more bothered that someone named her kid "Aeryn."

From Another Perspective said...

Great ending to a cute video!

Chaney said...

Good lord, did they name their child after a character in Farscape? I'm torn between 'omfg' and 'well done!'

After all, Aeryn was a pretty awesome character.

Bex said...

Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot! GENIOUS!

WV: trane. Qualified to create cake wrecks: "I'm a trane wreck."

Karen Clarke said...

WHOOO HOOO!! I sent in that comic. It literally made me laugh out loud. Keep up the great wrecking!

JamesterCK said...

Haha, "the dork side". That made me laugh a lot. And there are actually people who haven't seen Ghostbusters? That should be illegal!

Miradwyn said...

"And their desire to be round."
LOL, that's great.
Good worck grils.

Sara @ Life With the Two said...

"Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot" might just be the greatest thing I've heard all week!

Absolutely fabulous.

dooalot said...

Actually, "I want sprinkles" is a legitimate funny quote from The Office episode where Dwight tried to replace Angela's cat after he killed it. Very funny, but not really a wreck :)

Holly said...

"Please enjoy this lovely photo of Epcot." I just laughed until I cried! That needs to become a catch phrase.

Buffy said...

That. Video. Was. AWESOME!

Chakolate said...

RED (WRECK) ALERT! Danielle's name is misspelled (dang! I had to type that three times to get it right. It is right, isn't it?) in the second line under the video.

Tari said...

Those were awesome wrecks and great videos. Round of applause for all the hard work.

Guy said...

The girl's name was Cara, so I didn't spell everything correctly. :)

rebecca said...

that was the best video i have seen in a while!!!! def. two thumbs up!!!!!

Robyn Broyles said...

My 5yo son cried out "EEWWW!" for the first CCC on that video—totally unprompted. OTOH, he has a way to go... the Spider-Man CCC elicted a "So cool!" from him.

Erin said...

Love the Ghostbusters cupcakes! I thought I was the only one who caught the 'Listen! Do you smell something?' line! hahaha

YogaGal in the NW said...

So cute! Great cakes and great kids...

cakelady72 said...

That comic made me smile because that's my name. I'm famous! well not really.

Jailbreak said...

C-section cake - HUH Who thinks of having a hand popping out of an incision?

the dork side... That made me laugh . And there are actually people who haven't seen Ghostbusters? That should be illegal!

downundersugarglider said...

"Please enjoy this lovely picture of EPCOT" was the unexpected pleasure of my day!!
I agree - that could become another catchphrase!

latinacreativa said...

Awesome video! Well done ladies :)

Laine said...

Those Ghostbusters cupcakes took my breath away. I now have the theme for my daughter's 6th birthday in August. Jen, I fear you may have competition in the "biggest Ghostbusters fan" category (never mind the fact that she's barely 4 feet tall). She'd arm wrestle you for Venkman. "He slimed me. I feel so funky."

Kimmie said...

Man, there is nothing better than creative kids! Kudos to them for these funny vids. And I like the "patooie" as well!

akeorlando said...

Love the Ghostbuster cupcakes! So fun....

emily michelle said...

Our baby shower cake made it up on Cake Wrecks! This is a proud day for the family.

And for those who are wondering, everything on there, including the misspelled "gril" and the c-section hand, are from old posts on this site. Also, you can't see it, but there's an ultrasound on the other side of the sign that the hand is holding. We had to get in all the wrecks that we could.

Anonymous said...

I'm fairly certain that's a hand poking through a cervix, not a belly.

VeggieT said...

"Please enjoy this picture of EPCOT" proves these girls are cake wrecks fanatics. I was laughing thinking of the people who wouldn't "get-it" Awesome

Christina said...

Great Job Girls !!!

The person lying on the floor and waving script pages around in the background at :58 is a nice touch.
