Cake Wrecks

Once when I was about 8 or 9, my brother got the most awesome cake for his birthday. It was a cheeseburger cake 9 inches of frosting deep and with about an inch of cake on the inside. The cake was dry, or maybe it was moist. It didn't much matter because it had all the other right kinds of cake qualities important to a 9 year old. It had a sesame seed bun, a flourish of lettuce and a gently melted slice of American cheese atop a beefy patty. I'll always remember that cake. And I have a distinct feeling the recipients of these Cake Wrecks won't forget theirs either. (How I only just now discovered Cake Wrecks is beyond me, but Alan and I spent a good five minutes tonight laughing at these).

This one was described as a "frankenpoo butterfly with fuzzy monster wings."

I LOVE Cake Wrecks. I actually gave my mom the coffee table book of it for Christmas- it's hysterical!

I'm also beginning to believe that cake mistakes often much more often than I realize- a friend of mine had a groom's cake made for her wedding a few years ago, with an old school nintendo controller on top since her husband-to-be *loves* video games. The controller, his name and congrats, and easy-peasy done. Right?

Wrong wrong wrong- she picked up the cake the morning of the wedding and, much to her horror, they had put:

"Will Pick Up 1-15-04", in icing, right on top of the cake. No name, no congrats- just a nintendo controller with the "will pick up" message printed in *very* pretty icing cursive.

I still laugh every time I think about it, it was hysterical.
