Would love a calendar!

Sheri C. said...

The resemblance IS creepy.

Grandmothering said...

Wow, that is one ugly monkey!

Elissa said...

That face is scary! But I've never liked Seinfeld, so maybe that's why I think so.

WV: velify-- Sino-American for "verify"

jo said...

what's the deal with Seinfeld having boobs and a tail?

Mandy said...

I would love a copy of your book! And an autographed copy to boot? Awesome!:)
I love this site and I check it every morning. And sometimes in the afternoon too, just in case.:) Thanks for all the laughs. :)

Kiki B said...

Too funny! But I can't figure out the two big white boobs, oops, I mean blobs...Kiki B

Angie said...

Please enter me in your contest! Would absolutely love to win your book. Thanks!!

Amanda in YYC said...

What's the deal with CCCs (patooie!) always making me want to reach for the insulin?

Sarah McNair said...

Uncanny!

Anonymous said...

My 2 year old saw the cake and said, "Funny...cake...monkey!" He didn't have a comment for the Seinfeld picture, though. :)

-Mary

Michelle said...

ME ME ME! I so want one of these books. (but am way too cheap to buy it for myself)

Flartus said...

Naw, there's absolutely no resemblance. Now, if Jerry were sporting a tail...

What the heck species of monkey is that supposed to be? It looks like the limbs & tail are attached with velcro and can be re-arranged at will. I want one!

Carebakes said...

Wow. My son who loves monkeys was even confused by the atrocious monkey CCC.

Annie B. said...

Wow! It is NOT just you. The similarities are uncanny. And your impression was spot on, as well.

Mariea said...

You have to have a certain persona to be a star, you know, and I don't have that. I'm a banana. ~ Harvey Korman

Mel said...

Just one more cupcake here. And a little extra frosting there and voilà!!! Perfection. Yikes!

Tracey C. said...

baahaahaaahaaa!

That was Great...

I want to win something. Please? I lost at Trivia last night (sad face), went from first to third in the final round (wiping away tear), thanks.

Max said...

Hope you don't go too bananas with your week long birthday celebration! If you start running around the house in your monkey suit, I am running for the hills.

Bekki said...

Yikes - what's up with his 3rd leg? Just sayin...

Alysa Sawyer said...

Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love it!

A.J. said...

I'd love a calendar to help me get through the work week!

geenalyn said...

trying again....my four kids and I love looking at your blog everyday....I know they would love to have your book

The Boob Nazi said...

weeeiiird.

Keeley said...

My husband once had a boss who introduced him at a special event as "the world's best second banana". What a cake wreck that could be...

WV: mersi--what said boss would have been saying if I'd been able to get my hands around his throat.

RR Katie T said...

Please enter me in your contest! I love your site!!!

Shawndra said...

The resemblance is so obvious, and so frightening! I feel sorry for the poor kid who ended up with this wreck.

Your blog is too much fun. I only wish I could see the pictures at work. Darned overzealous school district filter!

kappapsichica said...

Last chance to win?! Oh no!

Handful of Love said...

What's the *deal* with bananas? They are basically the perfect fruit, prepackaged with no seeds to spit. That's the deal!

Love those CWs!

Amy said...

twins! and what's up with the..um..belly of that monkey?

Jabby said...

Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring
Banana phone!

TheHappyHomemaker said...

That's just bananas.

DarkPrincess said...

"And what is with all the poo flinging?"

Seinfeld monkey is almost as scary as that "Bee Movie" Seinfeld Bee.

lent said...

That is one strong resemblance! Although, I bet Seinfeld would get a kick out of it!
Would love to be entered into your contest.

Logan said...

Lets try one last time.

Michelle said...

Ummmm.... my mind went another way with the middle of the "cake" there. A not very child friendly way.

michelle c.

AJCarey258 said...

The resemblance is waaaaay too creepy! Eek! -Andrea C.

Robyn said...

This blog is legit the highlight of my day!

flip flop mama said...

I like winning!

Pam said...

To me that looks more like Jay Leno.

Jennifer R G said...

I would love a calendar!

Jenn said...

Sad bananas. That is all.


Oh, and I really want to win!

Julia said...

Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! Please...sad puppy face, fluttering eye lashes...

Elizabeth said...

The resemblance is uncanny.

Jen Price said...

The resemblance is uncanny! Kramer was so much funnier than Jerry though.

Kramer: Yeah, but before I met up with her, I stopped to look at the monkeys, when all of a sudden I am hit in the face with a banana peel. I turn and look and there is this monkey really laughing it up. Then someone tells me that he
did it. Well, I pick up the banana peel and I wait for that monkey to turn around. And then I *whap* let him have it.

Jerry: Kramer, you threw a banana peel at a monkey?

Kramer: Well, he started it!

Jerry: It's a monkey, Kramer!

Kramer: Well, he pushed my buttons, I couldn't help it, Jerry.

Jerry: Well, I still think it's wrong.

Kramer: Alright, alright, fine. You take the monkey's side, alright, go ahead.

Casey said...

At least it didn't look like Kramer...

Jennifer said...

Would love to win. I love your website. I share it with everybody while we are sitting around waiting for our daughters at gymnastics. They love it.

Jenny said...

These BANANAS are makin' me thirsty!

CDSquared said...

Wow! they look so much alike!
and because I LOVE this blog, and Jerry Seinfeld here is a funny monkey joke:

Q. What do you call a 2,000 pound gorilla?

A. Sir

haha hope I made you lol enough to win a book or calendar!

Marie said...

Used to work at a theatre. Jerry Seinfeld did his act there one time. I had to stand guard so the incoming personnel wouldn't go down to the dressing room where he was at. As the personnel were walking in, they asked me what I was doing there. When I told them, their attitude was "As if!" He had a sold out house, though.

H to the N said...

you guys are so awesome!

DJ said...

I just wanted to say that, although I don't post comments, I have read your blog almost since the beginning. I work in a book store and it was really nice to see your book for sale there when it came out. Congrats on the success. :)

Colleen said...

I agree... they could be twins!

debbo said...

wv: uttur

The simian CCC is an "uttur" fail. I'm just sayin'.

mimiheart said...

I'm always wary of food that could kill me, and that includes bananas. That's one of the scariest cakes you've ever posted.

Angie of MI said...

That is one ugly monkey I agree!!! And the CCC is AWFUL too....


I would LOVE to win a calendar..

Tudor Rose said...

For what it's worth, I did read that in Seinfeld's voice, so your impression is good enough for me!

Receptionist Row said...

Well, you what THE DOCTOR says:

"Always take a banana to a party, Rose. Bananas are good."


(Right now I am listening to the fun song, "I can't decide" by the Scissor Sisters. I love going on You Tube and watching The Master sing it to The Doctor!)

Kelly said...

What a resemblance.....

Kelly L
from Oklahoma

AndreaClaire said...

I mean, can you just find a banana lying on the ground? And if you did, would you eat the banana? What's the deal?

Liss said...

What needs to be done to end the era of the CCC (patooie!)? Its getting absurd. (but thats part of the hilarity, I suppose...)

Katherine said...

i have to say, the first thing i thought of when seeing that money was "holy crap, those are a huge pair of . . ."

or do i just have an incredibly dirty mind??

-katie, from toronto

jen bryner said...

i deserve to finally win and i *heart* bananas. that is all.

Angela said...

The comparsion is both hilarious and creepy. I can't stop staring at that monkey face (the cake, I mean).

Cara said...

How many legs does this monkey have? Is it a spider monkey?!

Mandar said...

that is a weird resemblance! and that calendar sounds awesome! [:

Karyl said...

Hmmmmm... maybe his wife can write a banana cupcake book next!

Maggie Bailey said...

I *DO* want to win! I do I do I do!

Larissa said...

OMG, that's scary!

Cheryl said...

Seinfeld endorses bananas -not mutant monkeys. It's cool, though. Common misconception.

Lady of the loch said...

Egad that must be a GM monkey. Nature can't do that!

Stay said...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm cake.

Ramona said...

No cake for you!

Valerie said...

Gotta love Seinfeld!!

LoJ said...

There must be a Seinfeld frilly-shirt CCC somewhere. *shudder* Wait, nevermind, I hope not.

Loo-E Loo-I said...

What is the DEAL with that cake? What is it - cupcakes or a cake? The bakery needs to make up it's mind! And why does it look like me?

Hmmmm....you post a picture of Seinfeld and you're also having a "contest"....hmmmmm. ;-D

LOL@Jen Price! Kramer is hilarious!

I'd like a wall calendar please. I am a faithful henchperson!

wv: othors. Jen and john (the hubby of Jen) are the othors of the Cake Wrecks blog.

Dharmamama said...

You take the monkey's side, go ahead!

(From this Seinfeld animation:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIc8BTe1de0 )

Melawnie said...

Jen - Look to the cookie!!

Stella said...

LOL that was good. Thank you Jen Price, that was spot on.

Meghan said...

It's fitting that you are giving away a calender that says "Nothing" from a post referencing a show about nothing. I'm just sayin'. :)

Suzie G. said...

lol! I see it.

Anne-Marie M. said...

The only thing I'll give the wreckerator here is that s/he didn't resort to plastic flotsam for the face, it is made of actual icing. Though putting a human face on a monkey is mighty strange. And what's up with those appendages? The only identifiable one is the tail...

Please, please, please pick me for your totally awesome, fantabulous, out-of-this-world CakeWrecks calendar!

Thank you.

WV miterti - Miterti looks better than this poo-covered CCC (ptooie!).

Labyrinth Gal said...

Ooohhhh...Cupcake Jerry! YUMmy!

Adam O said...

Cupcake cake Seinfeld joke... you learn something new every day.

Michelle said...

"No Cupcake for You" **second worse Seinfeld impression

Karyn said...

you guys asking for witty comments the entire week is wearing me out!

llama?

Thats all I got. If I win with this half hearted comment I'll be super embarassed (but happy)!

Patches said...

Oh my! That is so funny! It took me a second, but the more you look at it the more they look alike!

Kira N. said...

I love this site! It gets me through the workday :)

LeJoy said...

Forget the face! I am trying to figure out it's legs....

Mindy said...

Maybe Jerry likes monkey-banana-CCC's...not that there's anything wrong with that. Yada, yada, yada...blah, blah, blah.

Meagan said...

haha that's A-Mazing! It does look like him!

Kerri said...

No more monkey business!!

Kerri S

Marianne O said...

Hmmm, I was so distracted by the cake limbs pointing off in random directions that I didn't even notice the face. Wrecky on so many levels.

Pamela said...

I would love a copy of the book or calendar. Cakewrecks.com is one of my sites I go to everyday. I love the monkey and Seindfeld. Pick me to win, i never win anything.

Ariana said...

I've been reading cake wrecks for awhile now, and I would love a book! (I've recommended the site to a bunch of people too, including one person getting ready to pick wedding cakes.)

Jenni said...

I can see it... if i squint... sideways... ;P

Not that there's anything wrong with that

Andrew S said...

Gol dangit, what does it take to win the autographed book!?? It would make my day to win! :)

afrancis said...

Good post! Love the blogs and would love a goodie of some sort - calendar, book, etc....
Ally

Bug said...

uncanny!

'nuff said.

Holli said...

My daughter loves monkeys, but even she didn't know what to think about this one!

dezreen said...

Thanks for the give away!

Allison said...

I SO want a calendar!!!

Maryanne & Duke said...

I don't guess there's any reward in trying to make sense out of a CCC, but the resemblance is pretty striking...

growmyown said...

Pick me. Pick me. Said the banana or the poster wanting to win.

langela said...

I'd love a book or a calendar! Thanks for the chance.

ka.middleton said...

Is that what they mean when they call it a "chunky monkey"?

Jessica K said...

Thanks for the giggle today.

Sharon said...

I'd love a calendar! Love your site!

愛 - ちゃん said...

I hate it when they turn cupcakes into something like that. It's horrible!

Doug said...

I'm still trying to figure out which one's the cake!

Kate said...

The popular "brown monkey with a banana" creeps me out...

I'd rather see a black and white capuchin with an orange, quite honestly. Highly underrated.

Kristin said...

That is one ugly monkey!

Laura M. said...

A co-worker just mentioned how she thought cupcake cakes were cute, and I about punched her.

Tinu said...

Bananas do your body good

Carli said...

last chance already? I hope I win. And you are sooooo right about the seinfeld/monkey guy!

Erin - Thrift Madness said...

What is the DEAL with cupcake cakes? They're not cupcakes, and they're not cakes!

metsa said...

Lot of icing on the monkey there! And it does resemble Seinfeld.

Robin said...

Not what I wanted to see this morning!

~Robin B.

Katie said...

That's the most horrendous monkey CCC (patooie!) you've ever posted.

tessler said...

Um, what's the deal with those... I don't even know what they are! Monkeyboobs??

Anne said...

Hey Jerry, the jungle called. They're running out of bananas!

I'd love a copy of the book! :)

rockandrollcannibal said...

I was just calendar shopping yesterday. I was debating between Marc Chagal and chickens. A Cake Wrecks Calendar would certainly end the debate.

Sandra said...

Would love a book or calendar!

Sandra

Anonymous said...

I'm one of those folks who never understood the popularity of "Seinfeld." I think he and the monkey cake bear an excellent resemblance!
Sandra

Fifi's Sweet Stuff said...

I think the Jerry Monkey is kinda cool.... Put me in for winning something :) Love you

Shania said...

Very close resemblance!

McConnehey said...

I always call my little boys my monkeys...I think this post has me wanting to change that nickname!! lol

Little Lovables said...

HaHa! he's just trying to get away from the Bee movie lookalike. and yes, I so wants your book

Pip said...

The fact that I did not win is Bananas! B-a-n-a-n-a-s!

Rosen Creature said...

I'm in agreement with Dr. Who, Bananas are good! These guys are scary, but Bananas are good!

Ashley Alley said...

I think the monkey has an arm coming out of its boobs/chest area. Just a little creepy. Maybe Jerry likes disfigured monkeys....

JayKuz said...

Patedis. A dangerous infection of pate.

taichinovice said...

pick me pick me pick me. is tht enough begging? Love, Love to you and John. You are both such awesome people. I enjoy both of your sites on a daily basis. "too steamy" indeed. Great wedding pics. Have a superb weekend.

Anonymous said...

The extra long arm is freakin me out! And yes, there is some resemblance, wonder if it was on purpose?

-Reagan

Krista said...

Maybe he's made of cupcakes too?

Lynn said...

I think that monkey needs a manzier or is it a bro?

Erin said...

Bakingdom said...

I'm ordering that cake for Festivus.

JuliaKoponick said...

I bought a copy of Cake Wrecks for my sister-in-law for Christmas, but I fell in love with it and am having a hard time convincing myself to give it up. Money is too tight to buy a second one, but if I won one then I wouldn't have to have this inner struggle.....

Okay, enough of the pity party. Life goes on, and I am sure I will talk myself into giving it to her by Christmas.

Love the Seinfeld monkey!!

flededge: I got nothing....maybe it is a new kind of ledging product?

Michelle said...

Hah! It does look like him.

Prairie said...

Seriously, it would make my week to win the book (or the calendar)!

I'll spare you the pity-me story, but just know this gal goes through a lot, and loves a good laugh!

abi said...

I'm torn between commenting, "Yadda yadda yadda," or "NO CAKE FOR YOU." So here's both.

Rue said...

Maybe the monkey is just trying to network at a conference.

sparky_writer said...

I would be ecstatic to get a calendar. My husband gave me your book last Christmas and I've shared it with all my friends. It is one of my favorites!!!!!

K.Rose said...

I like to eat eat eat eapeels and beneenees...and I'd also like a book...and cake. Wait this isn't santa's lap...sorry sir!

K.Rose

KimK said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now I need to go clean coffee off my keyboard. (Winning something for all my pain and suffering would be nice too. I mean, that was good coffee!)

mzmclean said...

*batting eyes*
Even though that never works, but a girls gotta try! BEtter then flashing you, no one needs that.

;-)

Chan S E said...

I would love one of those books!!

julie said...

please

Super Alto said...

I'd love a calendar to go with my book!

sweetpagene said...

you're way more funny than jerry seinfeld.

crownring said...

Gone bananas! Back soon.

Being diabetic, I tended to stay away from the cake aisle at the grocery store. However since becoming addicted to this site, I can't resist looking for Cake Wrecks and this pseudo-technophobe may even splurge on a camera phone just to record the wrecks I find.

Whomever invented cupcake cakes deserves to be dressed in a clown suit... shot out of a cannon....into the Pacific Ocean....near an island inhabited by cannibals.

Hey Dud, does this clown taste funny to you?

Sammie said...

Sometimes I think decorators say, "Eh, it's just for a kid. They won't know the difference."

But hey, they're kind of right, kids today don't know who (or what) Seinfeld is.

Sammie

p.s. I'm also imagining how horrifying this would be if it were a flying monkey...

pennyo'reilly said...

It's Jerry Seinfeld's newest role as Banana Council Spokesperson.

Helenamh said...

Never having watched Seinfeld, I have to resort to another sitcom of the 90's.
Could that monkey BE any more disformed?

I would love win an autographed copy of your book! I think cakewrecks and epbot are SUPER awesome... In fact, in my application to Princeton, I'm listing cakewrecks as my favorite website. (true story)

Andrea M. said...

I'm quite intrigued by this Seinfeld- headed monkey's limb placement. Not quite sure how that monkey moves around with such wackado limbs. . . or how it copes with a hand in the middle of its' arm.

-Andrea

Callie said...

My husband loves Seinfeld more than just about anything...I don't really care for it? (Sorry!)

I have to admit that it's a little creepy seeing those pictures together. I'm going to have to take them home and let him see for himself!

As always, love the blog!

Jessica said...

Cake(wrecks book) please!

thesacredandtheprofane said...

If that monkey had been decorated with a full set of teeth, it would have been a frightening doppleganger.

Pandora said...

heLLLLOOOOOO

tiny purple elephant said...

Pick me John! Pick me! Pick me!

Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. They make a great on the go snack as they are portable,and dont require washing or knives for peeling. Pick one up today.

Did you know the easiest way to peel a banana is like the monkeys do. Simply squueze the BOTTOM stem and the skin will split apart easily.

Tiny purple elephant

caroline said...

That's just plain scary!

kwcinderella said...

GET OUTTA HERE!!
love Seinfeld!

Jayde said...

I think it's the eyebrows.

JessicaMarie said...

You'll never make a monkey outta me!!!

Anonymous said...

imagine if you will a certain whiny pitch in the voice--"Why does 2% milk taste good with cake, but tastes different with cupcakes?"

call me bananas!!

Sam i am

BROOKiE said...

Hmmm...quite the resemblance there eh?

meltingcinderella said...

I would love a calendar!

Melting Cinderella

Kadidders said...

They could be twins! I would love a chance to win the book or calendar!

musikartlvr said...

I would love a calendar!

Robin said...

Best imitiation of that no-talent Seinfeld I've ever seen.... I think it even channeled his personality!

Jen L. said...

I'md dying for a calendar!

Gayle said...

Pick me! I have the book, now I need the calendar. Didn't even know there WAS a calendar until today. :)

Josie said...

My cellular, bananular phone!

Banana phone, ring ring ring!

angieruns.com said...

"Get out of here!!!!"

But really, you are not the only one that sees the resemblance.

Angie said...

I've been instructed to stay away from breads and NO sweets for 2 weeks, so you know I'm just dyin' for some cake... but THAT ccc (ptooey!) makes the craving flat out RUN away. Yikes.

drumnate said...

Never mind Seinfeld. That CCC Monkey is scary on its own merits.

Kaitlyn (IUB) said...

Post post post post post post post post post post post poooooooost!

drgns4vr said...

I'm sort of afraid, since I've been reduced to soft foods like bananas (I broke a tooth off last night)and would hate to appear as part of this ccc setup.

WV cangshin I am trying to cangshin on the pity vote to get a calendar.

Ali said...

Uncanny.

Hollie said...

I love your site... I think about it each time I go to order a cake!!! :)

amchornetgirl said...

Hahaha! And I'd still love a book ;)

Anonymous said...

If the contest is open for international readers, count me in. :o)
Also, the Seinfeld/cake monkey resemblance is all kinds of uncanny and creeps me out.

Eva H. said...

Sorry, my last post went without my name...
As I said, if the contest is open to international readers, please count me in!!

Spud31 said...

I'll enter for the giggles.

Emily said...

no cake for you, lol, wow, scary look alike there!!

Kara said...

I'm seeing Rodney Dangerfield.

EWebey said...

Wow....That monkey looks like it has boobs.

Chris said...

That monkey needs teeth!

Reyna said...

Your blog makes me smile everyday!

Judy S. said...

I'm speechless!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

i woudl love a calendar... i so need a new one :)
ugly monkey but amazing DOES look like...

LivingInSong said...

What is it with cupcake cakes?

Juliana said...

I'm trying to figure out what the other two pale cupcakes are for... the ones that obviously aren't part of his limbs.

And although I am in the process of teaching my nephew to love monkeys, I now know to never get him a monkey cupcake cake.

Beht Spellman said...

Here I go, trying again. :)

Stampin'Cat said...

Never thought I'd see a ccc actually resemble someone without really trying. The creator must have been denied soup. ;-)

Shelby said...

That CCC (bleh) creeps me out. Please enter me for the book. =)

mon amy said...

I just got a book for my birthday and would love a calendar. I take my book to my cake decorativ classes that I teach.

Elvira said...

I sure would love to win. Being that I'm home sick with a virus that my adorable plague carrier..uh mean 3 year old child has so thoughtfully given me. Since he's totally into Monkeys it seemed fitting that I enter under this "spectacular" monkey cc!
