Royal Wrecks

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Princess-themed balloons, tiaras, and party favors: $54.00.

Special appearance by I Can't Believe It's Not Disney!©'s Princess Bimberella: $134.99.

Misspelling your daughter's giant hot-pink birthday cake:

Priceness.

Eh, it could be worse... I guess...

Say it out loud. It's fun! "PRY-ness."

See?

(P.S. In the future, I'd like to be referred to as Priness Number 1. Spread the word.)


Because you're never too old for the "magic:"

I wonder if that's royal icing.


At least here they spelled "Princess" right...

...but you do have to wonder what happened to the first 10 Princesses.


We bow down to her royal highnesses, Rebecca B., Ciere O., Heather, and Priness Nicky. These cakes rule! (Say, is the plural for highness "highni?" 'Cuz if it's not, it should be.)

Cake #1 - corneas burned - call 911

Fluffy Cow said...

This is why there should be no princess cakes.

How is it so hard???
How?
HOW?
Spell prince.
('P-R-I-N-C-E!')
Add a double S
('double S!')
What's that spell?
'PRINCESS!'
Pipe it again!
'PRINCESS!'
*takes a deep breath*
Thank you.

I'm definitely making that last cake for my little sister come her birthday... it has her name on it! Even though she won't be eleven... and doesn't like princesses. It just makes it a perfect wreck.

Jim Todd said...

Hmmm...11th Princess. Wonder if that's in relation to the Eleventh Doctor...

Lauren Borquez said...

Just so sad lol

tessler said...

Is it my imagination, or is the first cake actually A CORRECTION??? ::squinting:: Hard to tell in all the hot pink....

Trevor said...

More importantly, why were even the 10 previous princesses named Chloe? I read that as they are ALL named Chloe, which is just wrong!

Firefly said...

My 25th birthday cake from my daughter and husband was covered with those light up princess's. My cake was much prettier but those light up butt princess's look much better spinning on the floor with the four year old.

Indigo said...

The heck is that ugly blood red border on the first wreck? Was the princess cooked INTO the cake?

Half Assed Kitchen said...

Or perhaps, ala today's strange names, those kids really are called Priness and Priscess. Weirder things have happened.

Anonymous said...

Lame, just lame.

jo said...

Did someone pee on Carmen's cake???

And maybe Priscess was supposed to be 7 and they "misspelled" 7th as 70th? either that, or this old lady's got some ISSUES.

Maybe Chloe was one of the 12 dancing princesses. or 11th kid in a big family.

These cakes are just PRICENESS!

(Jen, you're really accumulating quite a new dictionary. You should assemble some of these new words into one spot for reference :) )

Megan F. said...

What happened to the other 10 princesses? Clearly they regenerated.

Anonymous said...

People bought these?
A pox on princess anything and their wreckerators.
mocking

Goueznou said...

The setup made me actually laugh out loud when I finally saw "Priceness." That was fun.

Like jo, I wondered if the Priscess was someone name Priscilla. But I doubt it. Maybe she's a Pisces, though.

My WV today is "spewip." Yeah.

Shannon said...

*grins* Cinderella's panties are glowing...

Gary said...

Priscess?
That must be like an abcess, except, you know, prissier.

Anonymous said...

Chloe is apparently the 11th princess of her country with that name - "Chloe the Eleventh".

Just like "Henry the Eighth" or "Elizabeth the Second". Yeah, that's it...

Fashionista- I am your fashion mannequin said...

looks delicous!

Chris said...

It would certainly give a new meaning to "sitting one's royal highni down".

Also, these cakes (along with ... well, most of the site) have degraded my already quite low faith in humanity even further. The next batch of Sunday Sweets cannot come too soon for me, as they never fail to restore a little hope.

Elly said...

Highni - pronounced hiney.
heh heh *snort*

Kim said...

What did the seventy-year-old do to deserve this big ol' wreck? Misspelling, loads of blank space, airbrushed cake around half-buried figurines, etc., etc. I think I'd rather be sent out on an ice flo.

Singing Wendy said...

No, no, no....the 11th Princess's name is Kathleen, not Chloe. Don't you people pay attention when you watch your poorly adapted, computer generated Barbie movies?

Anne-Marie said...

"I wonder if that's royal icing."

Bah-Doom-Pah! That pun is Priceness!

WV - ondcac - The wreckerators should try to correctly spell "princess" ondcac.

Stella said...

I sure hope 'Bimberella' covers ALL the Disney's Princesses'. OH, and leave the cheesecake underling.

Matthew said...

We HATE the first ten princesses.

T said...

you know why I love blogging - because 3 minutes ago I was brought to tears by a sweet but sad post and then VOILA - I click over here so that I can LITERALLY laugh out loud... "highni" got me cracking up enough that the kids came running :)

Kat Parsons said...

Royal Cake Wrecks?
I think all of the Canadian fans would feel as though this was wonderful timing, since Queen Elizabeth just dropped in for a visit here for a few days!

Erin Kelly said...

Good for Chloe; being the 11th princess is always good luck!

And at least at 70, Priscess may have left her glasses off and not *noticed* the abysmal spelling on her cake...

Katie said...

When you get past the light up panties on Cinderella, the celebration for the "prisness" and those 2 weird orbs on either side... what is the green doing on the bottom??? It looks like they started to attempt flowers (like those on the top) and said "aw heck, she's 70, probably cant see it anyways!" and just sort of left the green loveliness behind....

Becky said...

Please shoot me before giving me a princess cake at 70. Or any other time.

diddleymaz said...

plural of HRH is TRH ie Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall. Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Its the same for two Princesses or two Princes.

priness # 12 said...

Dear Priness Number 1, I think what happened to the other ten priness' is that they ate some of that cake.....

Angel P said...

@Katie! I was coming here to post the same thing. WTF is up with the green things?

Also, why'd they airbrush the bottoms of the dresses on those plastic Disney princesses? I mean, what's the point? Decorator just got a new airbrush?

Ashley said...

These remind me of the cake my best friend got me for my 20th birthday. "Happy Birthday Quenn Ashley"

What can I say, the catering staff at the university was.... creative? Just because you work at a university doesn't mean you have to know how to spell. I wish I had a picture to send to you now.

-And look, my word verification is "therd". As in "Happy therd Birthday"?

Erika said...

highni! hah hah hah

Siouxzr said...

Poor Pricess,

At first I thought that the colors of the icing on her cake had run and that was why there were puddles of blue, pink and yellow on the cake. Then I realized that was intentional airbrushing. But why? Because it's pretty??

All of these princess cakes remind me of when our supervisor told us a new employee named Poinsettia would be joining our group. Everyone thought that was an unusual name. Turns out the boss misread read the memo from human resources. Our new employee was Princetta. Said supervisor may have a future as a wreckerator.

kmawesome said...

seriously?!?
tessler said...

Is it my imagination, or is the first cake actually A CORRECTION??? ::squinting:: Hard to tell in all the hot pink....

i looked at the big picture and i think you are right it does look like a "correction" think that makes it even worse.

Aliza said...

If yesterday's cakes serve as excellent reasons not to get pregnant (or to be VERY careful about who you choose as friends!), then that 70th birthday cake is a good lesson in saving for one's retirement so you can afford decent birthday cakes!

Like the "priceness" :)

And... my first thought about Chloe was that the first 10 got beheaded. And Chloe's future isn't so bright if the cake they got her is any indication. I think this blog is further warping my already warped sense of humour!!

Jessica said...

Sometimes I click on post a comment just to see the wv. Mine was culhake.

Parent: "I want a really cool cake for my child's birthday."

Wreckerator: "Got it. Culhake."

Okay, those made my day. 11th Princess! (guffaw)

Anonymous said...

HELP!!! Someone dumped a whole bottle of Pepto on that first cake!!!

Anonymous said...

Since you'd like to be referred to as "Priness Number 1" can I be titled "Your Royal Priness?"

Quay W said...

"Highni" ? Yep. It's more goodlier that way. Heh.

11th Chloe has me with an earworm of "I'm 'Enery the Eighth I am... 'Enery the Eighth, I am, I am..."

corianne said...

the glowing panties and appearance that Cinderella is melting is part of a kit. We've seen it wrecked here before. The yellow and pink off to the side are Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I did a search, but I couldn't find it.

I'm choosing to believe that that particular cake was made for someone named Princess. Or Prisecss.
And that it was ordered by her 5-year-old Great-Granddaughter.
Who told the wreckorator how to spell "Princess"

sneece said...

Priceness = Priceless.

Rock on.

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm when I was eight years old I insisted that the correct spelling of my dog's name was "Prinses". Perhaps these "Princesses" got to decorate their own cakes......

Mama Martinez said...

I think the plural is "highnesseseseseseseses."

Anonymous said...

Love the pink cake!

XOXO,

A Paperback Writer said...

One can only assume that the 11th princess is from the TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES.

And I like your Bimberella idea. :)

Nicole Pelton said...

And they ruined such beauti...oh never mind, those are aweful w/o the wreckiness

Lauren said...

I wanna be Princess #2... oh wait... eew.

Fanboy Wife said...

Didn't the first 10 princesses dance their feet off, or get turned into birds, or something like that?

Anonymous said...

I think you can be Priness number 2. My mum's actual name really is Priness which I think gives her rights to being Priness number 1 (since I doubt there are any others out there number 2 slot is yours). These wreckerators have all dropped a c by accident; you don't wanna know how difficult it is to get it dropped on purpose. We get the cake that actually says happy birthday princess when what we want are these lovely wrecks.

ApatheticAlto said...

Could it be that Princess #11 had just finished a production of "Once Upon A Mattress"?

Salvo said...

"Priscess" totally reminds me of "abscess." Ew.

H to the izzo said...

Your play on words is why I love your site. Loved the Mastercard reference.

Anonymous said...

bwahahaha someone needs spell check

Shelley said...

cake #3 for the 70th priscess, "make sure you put rose leaves on the front of the cake" baker, "got it, rose leaves on the front" the rest of the world "whiskey tango foxtrot" LOL

Jenny said...

Sometimes I have to tell myself that these photos were taken in the bakery when some sleep-deprived baker made a boo-boo, noticed it, laughed about it, took a picture, then corrected it. Sadly, I know they were handed to an unsuspecting customer. That's why they use the white cardboard boxes and hope you'll be afraid to open it & check it out until after you're home and won't want to drive all the way back to have it fixed.

I'm starving and the first two look very tasty. I wish I could eat the mistakes right off of the cakes.

WV: upsirser - how I expect to see "Surprise" spelled on a future cake wreck.

Arlene said...

Oh first it was they couldn't spell congratulations.. now this lol. That bright pink pepto cake everyone needs some sunglasses just to look at that one. Wreckerators will never cease to amaze me on what they end up spelling incorrectly.. all their teachers are probably in hiding.

Rose said...

I was having a really rough morning, and this made me laugh out loud. Thank you, your royal Pryness, #1.

Chris L, Vancouver said...

The singular form of a word pluralised as "highni" would be "highnus". Please tell us you can find a cake that says "highnus" on it!

Kim k said...

HA! This post reminds me of the mothers day book I got from my first grader. She drew a picture of me with a crown on my head and wrote "my mom is a prissass". Seriously, she meant princess... no, seriously! Now, I'm known as coach prissass to my softball team.
