ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??

Friday, February 4, 2011

Ok, football "fans," get ready to cheer on your favorite team!

All together now!


PACKARDS!



STELERS!



"PACK ATTAK!!"

(Don't forget the air quotes.)




We Here 50 Go Steelers!!


GO PACK...uh...THING!!


GO SQUASHED BUMBLEBEE!!


Ok, confession time: I don't really care who wins this weekend. Heck, I had to google "Superbowl" just to figure out which teams were playing.

Fortunately, at least one bakery out there knows we don't all care about football, and is trying to pander accordingly:


SPARKLES!!

GREAT ABS!!


Fingers crossed these get served at a Superbowl party this weekend. :D


Thanks to wreckporters Kate D., Julia T., Diane T., Jessica W., Amanda C., Sara N., & Amanda S., who I'm sure will agree that what we really need is a Picard vs Kirk cake-off. And Batman vs Superman. Vizzini vs Humperdinck? Oh! And Sauron vs Voldemort! Bakers? You listening?
The Boob Nazi said...

The squished bumblebee did me in. You are hilarious.

Trevor said...

It's obvious that we need to form a company that goes around to bakeries and QC's the spelling and grammar on cakes BEFORE they go out. What do you think?

Tricia L said...

I know it would put CW out of business, but I'm thinking edible photo paper should be mandatory. However, I wouldn't have such a nice selection on the mark-down rack.

Reverend Ref + said...

As a huge, Huge, HUGE fan of the game, all I can say is, "DIE HERETICS!!!!"

Just . . . so wrong.

And that Pack thing looks like a uterus.

wv: gondsoal -- what happens when one of these "teams" scores: "GONDSOALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!"

Fluffy Cow said...

HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Packard. *sigh*

darn it... the Boob Nazi got 1st again.

jebus llama said...

Ya the squashed bumblebee made me giggle like a lunatic...while trying to keep my serious face on. It led to some straaaaange facial contortions. And I agree...a Picard/Kirk bake-off would be truly epic!

Carrie Ann said...

Love the Twilight reference. I don't care who wins this weekend either I might just use that theme instead.

Kelly K said...

As a diehard Packer fan, I have some cake "decorators" that have suddenly made me want to seek out their bakeries and tackle some cake - into the ground!!!

Donna M. said...

Team Edward all the way!!! :)

Since the Packards kicked my Bears out of the playoffs, I hope the Stelers kick them out of the Super Bowl.

Jenna said...

We NEED that Sauron v. Voldemort cake. All the others you mentioned, too, but definitely a Dark Lord Cake-Off.

Anonymous said...

Like you, I could care less about who is playing, let alone winning the "Super Bore", but a team of Packards might grab my attention!

Do you ever wonder about how many wrecks there are out there that don't get sent into you? What does this tell us about the state of our educational systems? Is cake decorating a safety net for those who "fall through the cracks"?
Very sad......but hilarious, nontheless! Squished bumblebee indeed!!!!!!!!

wv: etautes Etautes them to spell and write, but they didn't listen!

Anonymous said...

I'm a Packer fan and a friend of mine knows this. She, however, ALWAYS refers to them as the Packards. And not as a joke, she thought that's what they were until I explained that Packards were cars and the football team is the Packers, as in meat packers.

Judy's Daughter said...

I seriously thought that the first Eclipse cake said "Team Coward".

I need to get my glasses checked. Or at least wear them when I'm reading.

Deirdre said...

I went to high school in Wisconsin with a guy whose last name was Packard. So clearly that cake was for his family's superbowl party. I have no explanation for any of the rest, except that maybe they were *trying* to be on here? Please, let it be on purpose so they can make fun of themselves.

Anonymous said...

Well, I thought it was Packards. This is why I need Cake Wrecks. I get all my popular cultural education here. Sometimes, my kids are really impressed with my depth of knowledge - when I just casually drop reference to a Dana Carvey skit. However, sometimes they are equally as impressed by my ignorance, when I don't get the wreckieness of the Parckard cake!

Katie said...

Speaking of Vizzini, on the episode of Eureka we watched last night, one of the characters said, "They've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders: never go up against an Australian when DEATH is on the line!"

I giggled for 5 minutes while my fiance looked at me like I'd lost my marbles.

(I don't care about the Superbowl either, Jen)

VeggieT said...

Yay! I'm a football "fan."

Sandy C also in SoFla said...

I LOVE your cake-off suggestions. Absolutely killer-diller.

Pakard??? sweet!

Is that green y thing supposed to be a goal post????

Linda said...

Am I the only one who thinks it is funny that the STELERS! cake is in Packers colors?

Eric said...

Everyone knows that Sauron would obliterate Lord Voldemort before he could yank out his wand! Still, I agree a dark lord cake-off is in order!

SuBee said...

Translation:

We (the citizents,) Here (in Pittsburgh)
Go (to all) Steelers (games.)

Your welcome.

Jecka said...

It takes a lot for me not to be able to control my laughter... this post had some real gems in it that made my coworkers give me strange looks. Thanks!

GO PACKARDS!!!

Trevor said...

The irony here is way too funny. OMG I can't stop laughing.

Mark Thuesen said...

Really, who would put an actual football in a cake? Did they at least wash the football? LOL
mark thuesen

Jacob said...

Heh. The Stelers cake is actually in Green Bay's colors.

tjbmurph said...

Hee hee hee, Kirk vs Picard

Team Kirk:

Kirk: "Bones. The. Cake. Has. To. Be. Bigger."

McCoy: Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a pastry chef"

Team Picard:

Picard: (very suave English accent)"Number 1, hand me the number 2 tip"

(somebody call Robot Chicken)

Mary said...

That first cake reminds me of a football eyeball or contact lens. lol

Julie said...

I love the "Packards" cake! I can just picture those big old cars lumbering onto the field.

WV: freak. No other commentary needed.

Dorci said...

Kirk!

mladybright said...

What?? Packards go. Well, at least they used to.

I was secretly liking the first cake till I saw they wanted a very fine vintage car to leave.

I'm still wondering what that 'thing' is. Anyone have a clue?

Poor wittle sqwuished bumblebee. (sic) Unless someone has a warped view of sports... there's no way that is a football. I'm thinking they re-designed the 'marshmallows in the center of a tube' cake!

"Oh, hey, this'll be fine -- just fill the hole with mounds of yellow icing -- they'll love it!"

Now I have to search till I find one of the Twilight cakes to take to my son's Super Bowl party. Just 'cause. Maybe both, so there can be a real party.

Who really cares about the football game? I watch for the commercials.

~~Di

wv - judgen -- c'mon.. way too easy. Judgen by these cakes we're all losers if we wanted something classy.

Danielle said...

I recently ordered a super bowl cake for a huge shindig I'm a part of and I literally had nightmares last night about what was going to be on it. I'll be submitting it if it's worthy of the site. This particular bakery has never done me wrong but I just know with as busy as they should be this weekend, I'm going to be the one that ends up with the scary guy from the butcher department decorating my cake. If you don't hear from me Monday, Cleaver Joe did a good job....

Skiriki said...

Hey, that green and yellow cupcake thing looks like Marvel's HYDRA uniform.

...just sayin'. Uh, were we talking about footy or something?

Stella said...

gee, all those colours! I wanted to see Jacobs abs in CCC's.

Kate said...

Ooooooh! I was in the grocery store yesterday and it was weirdly busy with lots of people in the drink and snack isle. I started to wonder if there was something happening soon that I was unaware of.

Guess it was the Superbowl. Hardy har.

Megan said...

I think the Packers Thing that looks like a uterus is a team Jersey. For an anemic anorexic football player... or maybe a fangirl?

Dena said...

Go Pack Go!

Ps. Love how the steelers cakes are both green and gold :)

mzmclean said...

Is that the equivalent of the Borat swimsuit in CC form?

*shudders the BAD shudder*

No Cake Fo You!!!! said...

Yeeeeahhhhh I am a huge fan of the Twilight books and films too!!!!

But on to football, Wish there was a spell check function on cake designs... I'm Just Sayin'....

Have a great weekend!

BTW love your blog!!

SuBee said...

Trevor,
I apologize for my typo. I acttually no how to spel "citizens," I jest dont tipe so good. But annyway, I'm glad I gave you a laught.

Sue

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why they make cakes and cccs for football games anyway. Here in Wisconsin, at least, anything that doesn't go with beer is noms non grata.

Which leaves more cake for me. Ok, never mind, I get it now.

Donna said...

That poor squashed bumblebee...squashed the poo right out of it!

Anonymous said...

All I could think is that Edward may have SPARKLES, but at least he doesn't have SPRINKLES...

These vampires are doing weird things to my mind, man.

J. said...

FYI, this will be the first time in over 40 years that the Super Bowl will be cheerleaderless, though apparently not cakeless. ;-)

Aliza said...

Ooo, Packards. Pause while I excitedly look for gorgeous 30s, 40s, 50s era mobile art, such as Figoni e Falaschi Talbots, Stutzes, Studebakers, Deusenbergs, Delahayes, and Jaguars. Nooooo! You mean it's football wrecks?! Way to crush a girl's spirit ::disappointed::

::brightens:: But they are good wrecks to mock!

#1 Was a very nicely done cake, if not for the use of the wrong word. Must be a fan of the opposing team.

#2 *is* recognizable as a football...

#3 May I suggest, O Wreckerator, that you "pack" it in and look for an alternate career? Before you're attacked by rabid football fans?

#4 Should've just left it as "Go Steelers!". While the 50-yard line is all well and good, the goal to score a TD!

#5 ::mystified:: I have no clue what this is supposed to be. Other than a (patooie!) CCC

#6 You're right, it really does look more like a squashed bumblebee. Bakeries need to post pictures of that season's sports to help non-fan wreckerators know what they're supposed to be mimicking

#7 and #8 I think I like the football cakes better...

I do like your version of playoffs, though!

Anonymous said...

The person who made the "Packards" cake was obviously making this cake in anticipation of the opening of the movie "Cars 2" this summer.
Kirk vs Picard I have to go with Picard, the hairstyle, the accent, Oh yeah, Picard
Batman vs. Superman I must go with Superman, although Batman has the better altar ego, but Clark did manage to marry Lois Lane while Bruce remains single.
I'm thinking we need an Emperor Palpatine vs the Borg Queen cake.

WV: fautwarg- I think I'll let you fill in this one, you are way more creative than I am.

GO SQUASHED BUMBLEBEE!!

the green bay ccc looks like a pair of lumpy siamese twins, wearing sashes.

meanwhile, what event inspired the Team Edward and Team Jacob cakes??? are they boxing? wrestling? are their fans duking it out? is it physical?is it a vampire board game? wtf?

Anonymous said...

I have to go with Voldemort... he's got so much more finesse than Sauron.

Tara said...

I must have too many small children. All I could see in the Packers CCC (patooie) was all the green frosting and imagining all the washing it would take to get that out of their clothing!

And also, LOL at the squashed bumblebee! :) Thumbs up on that one CW!

Anonymous said...

Why do the swirly things behind Jacob (to the left) look like boobs??

Sarah said...

I just *love* that I read out loud "Here 50 We Go Steelers" just before I scrolled down to see you had written it. I think I'm an official Wreckie now.

Laura said...

Go (Hewlett) Packards. For the Win!

T said...

I didn't know who was playing until my hair appointment on Tuesday (apparently hairdressers are BIG football fans) - but best of all ManOfTheHouse had to ask ME who was playing.

Now I can tell him it's the squished bumblebees Versus the cupcake uteri... uteruses?

Elizabeth said...

Ah! I took a picture of the Team Jacob cake at my grocery store back home to submit and I hadn't gotten to it yet, curses! Although theirs also had the unfortunate effect of their printer apparently running out of ink, so poor Jacob looked a LOT more pink and dreadful.

Ellen said...

Great, as always!

And I know the fight song of the Squished Bumblebees!

:::sings:::

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee . . .

A Picard/Kirk cake competition? Cool! Rounded tummy cakes vs. bald head cakes -- a true opportunity for both Sunday Sweet-worthy artists and wreckerators.

Make it so!

wv - Changs.

Isn't that Christopher Plummer's family?

Biting, of course!


wv - psiono.

"Psi! O, no!" she cried out, as the vampire Greek letter attacked.

The Black Dog said...

Poor squashed bumblebee!

Boy George said...

Wow, this was definitely a day that I had a very hard time stifling my laughter!

That first cake is just too creepy for me. Looks like the football is trying to push its way out of some orifice or another. Not very appetizing AT ALL!

wv: awshint (that's what the customer says when they see what the Wreckerator did)

Robert said...

I could go for a Perry vs Doofenschmirtz cake!

BADKarma! said...

Maybe the person who ordered that first cake is just really into old cars...

Jabby said...

Picard vs Kirk... Sauron vs Voldemort... This blog always appeals to my inner geek so much.

Anonymous said...

I snickered at the Go Packards, but I LOL'd IRL when I saw the Go Stelers! cake adorned with the Packers team colors.

And then I laughed even harder when I realized the first cake was Go Packards, because I thought it said Go Packhards. My mind must be in the cake gutter. Or perhaps I'm just too excited to see my beloved Packers deliver an epic beatdown on Sunday!

sungyim said...

Those Twilight cakes are hilarious.

Connie Moreno said...

You're not the only one who doesn't give a rat's a$$ about the game!

Kit said...

"Pack Attack" really is something us Packer Fans call the Packers and how they play, so that cake is not TOO horrible... but the others just made me laugh!

Virginia Beach said...

Besides the misspelled "Packards" it took me a sec to catch the attempt at green/gold Packers colors--they used a pastel, mint green and a "dead mustard" shade of gold. But then did the writing in the correct shade of dark green! This decorator scares me.

Anonymous said...

I thought it said "Team Coward" too.

Squashed Bumblebee! That's my new team mascot.

Adorably Dead said...

Even Twilight cakes look crappy. Sweet. XD

Sierra Sarah San Diego said...

At least the first cake got the snow part correct!

Kari Ann said...

Actually, wouldn't the appropriate team names for the Twilight movies be "Necrophiles" and "Furries"? *evil grin*

Anonymous said...

As I am not a football fan, all I can do is objectively laugh at the wreckage. Hehehehehehe

Elise T said...

Vizzini vs. Humperdink has my full support!

Katie said...

But Vizzini doesn't even make it through the whole film. Doesn't even plan to do any killing himself. Humperdinck at least tries to kill Wesley and intends to kill Buttercup. OTOH, a Vizzini cake could be covered in "Inconceivable!"

I say "Cake Wrecks" versus "Awkward Family Photos" battle.

KatiMomKat said...

Cake #1: Realistic looking football; creepy looking "alien birth".

Cake #2: "Steler" wreck, Mr. Bakerman.

Cake #4 "We Here 50 G0 Steelers": reminds me of the now infamous, quote worthy "OH, Here Come Hell Go!" exclamation by Calvin Tran of "The Fashion Show", as seen on "The Soup":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ax4IUgMq0Aw

Cake#6: @Mladybright: I love your reference to the ridiculous Hanukkah cake from Sandra Lee. "Squashed Bumblebee": soooo funny, Jen! You made me laugh out loud, as usual.

Me said...

Arlene said...

Lol would have that Edward cake if not for the horrid edible paper. Sorry but that ruined it for me. Now if only they had put sprinkles I might be convinced.

Anonymous said...

#5- dear lord what is that thing??

(I vote for a Firefly/Castle bake off. WOOT)

-Barbara Anne

P.S. @Reverend Ref+ "a uterus?" LMAO!!!

wv: milishes
when I see some of these cakes I feel a little milishes towards those wreckerators.

khanada said...

it hurts that you didn't spell super bowl correctly :(

AmandaMe said...

I think the cupcake tumor is supposed to be a jersey? Maybe?

Melinda said...

Go Packards! Are they playing the Studebakers? That makes me think of the "car soccer" match (or football in the UK) that was featured on an episode of Top Gear.

Mark Thuesen said...

Does it really take that much time to spell check a cake? My guess is that they probably have no idea for the correct spelling anyway.

mark thuesen

Meg said...

I love that the "Stelers" cake is not just spelled wrong, but also appears to be green and gold!

wintermermaid said...

The first cake looks like the football is "crowning" as in.. is being birthed vaginally!

Ruth said...

Ah, bit lost on me, I'm in the UK so had no idea it WAS the superbowl this weekend, and still think you're talking about AMERICAN football, if it's just football it doesn't involve a ball that shape :-D

Jeffrey said...

I suspect the "Stelers" cake wasn't in Green Bay colours as much as supposed to be on a football field with green grass and yellow line markings.

How about Luke Skywalker vs Inigo Montoya? The werewolf from Twilight vs Capt (she got promoted) Angua? Dirty Harry vs Sam Vimes?

Anonymous said...

I know who I'm rooting for.

GO SQUASHED BUMBLEBEE!!

Kelly said...

The first thing I thought when I saw Packard was Hewlett-Packard...*pushes glasses back onto nose and giggles*
I love the Kirk/Picard bake-off! That would be amazing!

Wolverine Girl said...

The Pack...uh...thing CCC patooey takes me right back to the 80s and the various weddings I attended. Dear me, the torture that bridesmaids went through! Just imagine it in taffeta with a matching puffy froufrou skirt :) Oh and apparently the Packuhthings are from Greanbag.

WV: saulne - Misspelling found on a Team Sauron cake

Shayna said...

Please, please, PLEASE have a Kirk vs Picard cake-off Superbowl! I think that's the best idea I've ever seen on this blog.

Jeff the gain weight fast guy said...

LOL I love the random packers one that's just a blob.

Elizabeth said...

I am going to go buy a Twilight Saga cake just so I can serve it at my Superbowl party tomorrow. Thanks for the great idea, I've been wondering what to serve!

kmd said...

The best part about the GO PACKARDS cake display was most cakes were spelled "Packards" while a few were also spelled "Pacards," yet the big sign said "Packers." It was an exciting discovery.

desirie_jessica said...

I wanna eat those yummy fondant cake. I remember myself before craving to make that kind of cake before. I hurriedly find recipes for it. For the beginners who loves to make Fondant cake and icing on their, here is a sure way recipe for you. See - http://jessicabyrne.com/let%E2%80%99s-start-making-yummy-and-delicious-fondant-icing.html

Enjoy!

Ashley Halfhill said...

My vote goes to Voldemort. Sauron is great and all, but since he transformed from a...whatever the hell he was into a giant eye, he's hardly as intimidating on his own.

Jennifer said...

I'd go for a "Spike vs Angel" cake myself.

Mary said...

am I the only one that thought the team edward cake read "team coward" at first glance?
