One Huge Cake Wreck.

August 28, 2008

Besides being a blogger, I am an avid blog reader. One of the blogs I love to read is Strongly Worded Letter by Gene Baxter from KROQ… aka Bean. Bean is freaking hilarious – to say the least, but his post today was extra informative. He lead me to the following blog – Cake Wrecks. I about peed after every post, but this one really broke the seal… HAHAHA:

“I know this post is going to test the limits of my credibility with you, faithful Cake Wrecks readers, so here is the originating site, provided by Summer from TX, to prove I am not making this up.

First, the inspiration:

 

Which isn’t bad, I guess, if you’ve got a Brave Heart kind of vibe going for your wedding. Certainly it’s executed well.

Anyway, here is what the paid, “professional” baker provided:

Erm.

[glancing between the two photos]

It’s like seeing double, isn’t it? I mean, sure, the second one is collapsed in on itself, slumped over to one side, and channeling a bit more Bob Marley than William Wallace, but besides all that I’d say the decorator was bang on, wouldn’t you? Ok, ok, if you wanted to get picky about it, I guess that crack in the bottom – the one you can see the cake through? – that probably should have been iced over. Oh, and the red stripe might look a little nicer if it were one continuous line – or for that matter, if the line were straight. (Perhaps a little too much Red Stripe was consumed before icing the red stripe, eh? Eh? Come on, that was freakin’ hilarious, people: Bob Marley? Jamaican beer? Booya!)

Come to think of it, maybe that mass of squiggles in the mid section isn’t the best example of plaid I’ve ever seen, either. [tilting head to one side] Huh. Yeah. Ok, Summer, you got me: I can sort of see why the bride sued.

Cake Wrecks.”

It is the paragraph after the pics that had me laughing out loud at work, calling all my co-workers over, and having them laugh hysterically back to their desks. Ugh. Too much laughing. SOOO FUNNY.

Till next time.
