Bless His Heart

Friday, October 1, 2010

After seeing the first communion cake his Sunday School ordered for him, Seth's mom suspected a parent-teacher conference might be in the works.




Jaz I, I know sometimes you just really want sprinkles, but this is getting ridiculous.

Maybe prayer works better in sprinkled cookie cake form?

Heide said...

Are those really sprinkles? For a minute, I thought they were Fruity Pebbles.

Lori DiBacco said...

Awesome! God bless 'em.

The Black Dog said...

At first I thought this was the dreaded CCC because of how misshapen the cake was. Unfortunately I was wrong.

Anonymous said...

Is that a cake or a donut cake? Either way, poor Seth! God BLESS you, Seth!

MissNay said...

Life changing sprinkles, unbelievable details, perfect wording....too wonderful for words

Anonymous said...

mmmmm....crunchy.

Kate said...

Wait.

Is that not a normal confirmation cake?

...........

Mom and I have some "chatting" to do.

LOL! I may need to get a cake that says that for my youngest's first communion next year. Minus the ton of sprinkles, of course.

Danger Boy said...

Our Sprinkle, who art in Bakery,
Hollowed be thy sweet tooth.
Thy Cakedom come
Thy baking be done
in dining room as it is in Bakery.

Give us this day our daily cake,
and forgive us our dentist bills,
as we forgive them that wreck against us.

And lead us straight into temptation
delivering pounds upon our guts.
For thine is the sprinkle, and the frosting, and the cake, for the next 5 minutes. Dig in.

Trevor said...

I had to do a double take to see if those were really sprinkles covering that cake.

Do you wonder what all those sprinkles might be hiding? I mean, given the terrible job on the whole cake and all.

I hope Seth wasn't too cross!

Silrette said...

Well, first his parents never had parents of their own, so they don't know what they're doing.

Then, they get the whole family kicked out of paradise.

Next, one brother kills the other brother.

To top it all off, this cake.

Poor Seth.

@ Danger Boy - that was funny!

SPRINKLES FOR JESUS!!!

Crunch, crunch, eww.

WV: grerses: "The cake just left the grerses taste in my mouth. I think it was the sprinkles."

Miss Mina said...

@Danger Boy - As a recovering Catholic, I just wanted to say, God frost you!

@Silrette - Perhaps if it were sprinkles instead of forbidden fruit...? Just sayin'.

WV: delmi - If dis cake 'ad less sprinkles, delmi, vud you eat it?

Betsy said...

As a children's pastor you have to understand sometimes you really need to make sure you have "extras" of everything to avoid the inevitable argument from the one that "didn't get the piece covered in the most sprinkles..."

Not to mention after the last baptism at our church where two of the young-uns being baptized ( ages 6-8) got into a stompping competition (on each others feet) during the prayer before "God Help Seth's parents" might be more appropriate!

lisagems said...

Good lord (umm.. pun unintentional). Did they press the sprinkles into the frosting by the handful? That looks so... bleh.

On top of the request for DI.

WV: sohysi "It's sohysi to fall in love..."

Looks like a donut cake from Allie's.

Seth's wife, but not WifeofSeth said...

Love this cake, though It's far too appropriate to be considered a wreck.

Heather said...

mass of sprinkles > mass of cake

Anonymous said...

it looks like they splattered paint onto the cake, rather than used a crate of sprinkles on it

Emily said...

I second the donut cake from Allie's (and love that another reader knows what that is!) it might be a wreck, but it's delicious:)

Katie said...

Maybe Seth wasn't the cake's recipient. Maybe Seth is the assistant Wreckerator who needs to start going to Sprinkleholics Annonymous...

kater said...

'help' appears to be in a different font than both 'god' and 'seth'. two different wreckerators perhaps?

wv - raterg: if the sprinkles were brown, they'd look more like ratergs.

Double J Adventures said...

@ Danger Boy - So funny, loved it!

I think they got too excited about the sprinkles and forgot to ice the sides of the cake.

"WhoooHoooo SPRINKLES!!!!!!spinkle, spinkle, sprinkle!.......wait....I feel like I am forgetting something?"

Kenri said...

God Help this cake. This crooked rainbow cross cake.

Pam said...

My daughter, niece and nephews would LOVE the over-abundance of sprinkles this sugary cross has to offer.

deb said...

Nothing says "Welcome to the Church" like a crooked cross smothered in sprinkles.

Kate said...

DangerBoy, I want to play too. So, like a damned hell ass good Catholic? Here, say ten Hail Frostings.

Hail Frosting, full of sugar, the Cake is under thee; blessed art thou among bakers, and blessed is the fruit in they filling, strawberry rhubarb. Holy Frosting, perfect compliment, deliver our sweet tooth now and at the hour of our diabetic coma.

Amen.

wv: vanatri: answers Miss Mina's wv - "no, I don' vanatri dis cake!"

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking more along the lines of "God help Seth's parents" after he eats this sprinkle/sugar slathered cake!!

Oh, and yeah... what's with the Di references? Yeah, Di ate cake and loved it. I really did. Minus sprinkles, as those were eaten by themselves straight from the container. Never gathered on cake.

D.B. Echo said...

From a distance it looks like that cake is teeming with brightly-colored maggots.

Pointing that out would probably mean more cake for me.

WVW: premb - To get a larger share of something (e.g. cake) by making a revolting comment that makes everyone else want less or none at all.

Jan said...

This may be the best Wreck ever-of course I have been thinking all day that God had better help my teenage son (listening James?!?)

Annette said...

I teach 2nd grade (the year children make their First Communion) at a Catholic grade school. I enjoyed this post way too much!

Samantha said...

OMG IS THAT AN ALLIES DONUT CAKE?!?! omg they're soooo good regardless of how this looks I get one every year

Tammy said...

Yikes! Is that an intro to an intervention? Or dessert AFTER the intervention - you know, in case it didn't work???

Arlene said...

Just what Seth needs a mouthful of sugary sprinkles.. God help his teachers after he eats this lol and his parents too for that matter.

Craig said...

Good one, @ Silrette. We can't be too hard on Adam and Eve, though -- all of their kids were conceived *outside* of the garden, so where would we all be if they had followed instructions?

I was thinking perhaps 'Seth' was the wreckerator's signature, and he wrote the inscription after realizing he has a sprinkles problem.

A donut cake sounds yummy. Just to be clear, we're not talking 'cake donut', but an actual raised donut in a cake-style form factor, right?

Some local baker needs to be making such a creation now. Sprinkles optional.

Angie said...

Oh, that poor kid! Bless him, indeed... And I think it's the wreckerator who needs the Big Guy's help.

wv - roide: Maybe the wreckerator was suffering from roides and that's why this one looks so bad?

ksaldria said...

Good God, it looks like someone barfed sprinkles all over the dang thing.

Helen said...

That's very interesting... I'm a cake decorator myself (mostly for the fun of it)... If you want you can visit my website and see some of my work.

"Sprinkles?" I'd call that a full immersion....

pikkewyntjie said...

Actually, Seth is the name of the Sunday School teacher. The kid's name is Damien! :O

Malweth said...

+1 on an Allie's donut cake. That's the reason I left Google Reader to check out the comments!!

If it is a donut, the sprinkles are A-OK -- it's the only way I've seen them done.

Alyssa said...

I've had the BEST time with this one! My brother's name is Seth, and he caused our vicar SO much stress during Catechism classes- he was nearly kicked out. I wonder if it was made for him! Ha!
