Yep, while we've been focusing on all the actual *cake* wrecks, bakers have been industriously wrecking just about every other item in the bakery, and then some.
How else can you explain "The Brownie Ball?"
I kid thee not.
Now, do I want to eat this?
Of course I do.
Does that make it excusable?
No, it does not.
Hey, just because *I* don't have any self-respect doesn't mean bakers shouldn't.
Or, if you prefer your giant ball of icing rolled in sprinkles and served on a cookie platter:
It's not all sugar and sprinkles, though. Hoooo no. See, unfortunately, the deli guys decided to get in on the "decorating" action, too.
Billy Bear Bologna:
The world's cheesiest gingerbread man:
Yes, that's really a cheese "ball." Decorated with icing.
Because cheddar & buttercream = Gouda upchuckin' fun!
Pineapple upside down shrimp "cake:"
SWEET MERCY I THINK ONE JUST MOVED.
[Update: the final "cake" has sparked a lively debate in the comments, so perhaps this video instructional on making a "Smörgåscake" (submitted by Marcus B.) will help.
Just kidding; it won't. But if you want to see a guy yelling instructions in "Swenglish" and violently throwing ingredients around, then it's pretty funny.]
