Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Sixth Edition)

1431631403-firework-backdrop-de

Now that Father’s Day is over, we go into the Fourth of July. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, almost all municipal Independence Day events in the United States are canceled. So you’ll most likely see no parades, no concerts, no outdoor shows, no regattas, no picnics, and no local celebrations. And the only fireworks you’ll see are the your neighbor shoots off in his back yard. Yeah, it’s kind of depressing. But we all must make sacrifices. Still, you can at least make some 4th of July treats even if they’re just for yourself. And on July 3, a movie version of Hamilton will stream on Disney+ so you can no longer have any excuse about seeing due to being poor. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of star-spangled 4th of July treats. Enjoy.

The Wonderful World of Peep Shows (No, Not That Kind) (Seventh Edition)

As the Coronavirus ravages the world and leads to mass cancellations of aspects related to our social lives, we must try our best to get by. In fact, just the other day at Target I saw Saint Patrick’s Day decorations on discount and it’s not even Saint Patrick’s Day. Also, there was practically no toilet paper, hand sanitizer, or rubbing alcohol. Anyway, given that I do these posts at home on my laptop, I don’t have any excuse to slack off on my Easter posts. So it’s perfect for my favorite kind of Easter post, peep dioramas. In these, people take these inedible sugar coated marshmallow candies and put them into little scenes to amuse us. And yes, they contests for it every Easter, too. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of peep dioramas. Enjoy.

Another take off of The Anatomy Lesson. And no, the bunny didn’t donate their body to science.

35. How about a day at the planetarium?

DY5q2FDX0AEgKWv

This one has chicks and bunnies looking up at the constellations. In Pittsburgh, you basically have the IMAX to accomplish that.

f45803d4f0e35aeb3ca754f3cec02d80

This is a funeral home scene. And here the dead bunny’s widow weeps behind a veil.

You can see plenty of bunnies and chicks in their costumes. While ghosts fly over the houses.

40. We couldn’t accomplish space flight without our hidden peeps.

Okay, it’s quite late for that. Yet, you have to love the little bird house cabins.

43. Anyone want to deal?

IMG_2101_0

It’s parodying the famous Dogs Playing Poker painting. Not an artistic masterpiece compared to Michelangelo. But amusing.

44. Who knew that peeps could sail?

IMG_peeps_boat

Here they are manning a sail boat. All bunnies wear orange life jackets.

45. Quint’s having a very bad day.

48. Talk about a divided America.

Peep_splitscreen_2.58eea732112e1

One side has MAGAts at an event that will live in infamy. The other side has those from the Women’s March. And you can see, the Women’s March had way more people attending than the Trump inauguration.

49. Congratulations to the Peep class of 2009.

peep92

These are peeps graduating high school. And boy, will they have to deal with problems you wouldn’t believe.

This is straight from King Kong. Just as planes are about to kill him.

 

 

Hop Down the Bunny Trail for These Easter Treats (Sixth Edition)

501

Now that I have my Saint Patrick’s Day stuff over with, I can now dive into my Easter posts. At least I could as long as the Coronavirus doesn’t get me first. Anyway, enough with that kind of depressing stuff. Though Saint Patrick’s Day is only a week away, I see plenty of places that already have Easter eggs, pastels, cute animals, and flowers out. And since I got plenty of Easter stuff I do before the holiday, I might as well get them out of the way as soon as I can.

Erin Go Bragh with These Lucky Treats on Saint Patrick’s Day (Sixth Edition)

MPP-St.-Patricks-Day-Dessert-Table

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, it’s on to the green, shamrocks, rainbows, leprechauns, and pots of gold. Given that we have so many Irish Americans, it’s basically the Irish version of Cinco de Mayo. Except there’s some kind of religious significance since it honors Saint Patrick who brought Christianity to Ireland, not to honor a battle fought against the French at the US-Mexican border. Though that doesn’t stop people from using the holiday as an excuse to get drunk. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you yet another assortment of Saint Patrick’s Day treats. Enjoy.

  1. A chocolate cake must have minty green icing.

Make a Wish and Blow Out the Candles with These Birthday Party Cakes (Sixth Edition)

imageService.jpg

On January 13 this year I will turn 30 which makes me a bit on edge. On one hand, I get presents and have a special day all about me. On the other hand, I feel like I haven’t accomplished much as I should by this point in my life. Anyway, I decided to dedicate it the way I usually do with a bad birthday cake post featuring some really terrible disasters from Cake Wrecks. Now when you go to a bakery, you expect that everything is made to your specification. But since we have sites like Cake Wrecks, this doesn’t always go that way. Since the cake decorators aren’t going to be from some prestigious cake decorating academy. And some don’t even know how to follow directions. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of birthday cakes gone wrong.

  1.  There’s something wrong with the girl’s hand.
1f0d0e0ea97a3bde7bab3d580696a60f

Because the thumbs look quite different. Also, that doesn’t look like a 6-year-old girl to me for some reason.

2. When they draw a tooth, you draw a tooth.

78001e9e3c4b3dfa82d9d2732870e118

Don’t just write it in multi-colored icing. But did the cake decorator listen? No.

3. When you have a cupcake cake, put the phrases in different bubbles.

10710906-16883991-thumbnail

Because if you write across, the saying may look like this. And let’s just say, it’s kind of off so to speak.

4. It’s supposed to say, “When you’re 64.”

10710906-23152613-thumbnail

But instead it says, “un.” Yeah, that doesn’t make sense the least bit.

5. A clown cake is always great for a kid’s party.

10710906-23264902-thumbnail

Okay, more appropriate for a kid’s Halloween party. Also, does that clown look dead to you? Seriously, it’s creepy.

6. Well, he got a big 2.

10710906-23272235-thumbnail

Yet, it’s on top of some green icing. Nobody knows what it says to this day.

7. Yes, it’s someone’s birthday all right.

10710906-24321276-thumbnail

Though I don’t know what the hell this figure’s doing on here. Is there a Sesame Street muppet I don’t know about?

8. Apparently, this family doesn’t make gender an issue.

10710906-24391087-thumbnail

Okay, we know Jeff is a boy. The icing is in blue. Also, Jeff is a boy’s name. Seriously, I have 2 uncles by that name.

9. Feel free to customize this birthday cake.

10710906-24554002-thumbnail

Uh, isn’t that supposed to be the bakery’s job? Don’t they have a special design program for that? Just asking because I know they put photos on cakes somehow.

10. No girl is ever too old to be a Disney princess.

10710906-24767173-thumbnail

But 70 is kind of pushing it. Then again, it her birthday. She can have any cake she wants. If she wants Cinderella, fine.

11. Happy Birthday to a special boy.

10710906-24936108-thumbnail

That basically all it says. Because we don’t really know the guy’s name.

12. Hope you enjoy your Birthcay, whoever you are.

10710906-25097154-thumbnail

Yeah, “Birthday” is mispelled. Despite that spelling it isn’t that hard. Wonder why that is.

13. Apparently, bakeries don’t have spell check.

10710906-25097167-thumbnail

“Birthday” is definitely spelled wrong. Yet, what is that name below? Kathy W or Natty W?

14. How do you say “Happy Birthday” in 3 languages?

10710906-25282649-thumbnail

And apparently, this bakery doesn’t know any but English. Though they wrote the instructions.

15. Everyone seems to like bees nowadays.

10710906-25394955-thumbnail

Oh my God, what the hell is that thing? Seriously, that looks more like a demon with bee stripes? And no, I’m not calling it Sting.

16. Mickey Mouse is always good for a baby’s first birthday cake.

10710906-25652401-thumbnail

But this Mickey seems rather skeevy for some reason. Seriously, I don’t like the look in his eyes like he’s out for trouble.

17. Does this cake decorator have any idea about spacing?

10710906-25822452-thumbnail

Seriously, the words are all together. Also, who the hell named their kid Prudy in the 1980s and 1990s?

18. Kung Fu Panda fans might enjoy this Po cake.

10710906-25851256-thumbnail

Though this one doesn’t look anywhere near finished. Or part of the design ripped off. Either way, looks rather sad.

19. Perhaps anyone would like this 40th birthday cake.

10710906-26369027-thumbnail

Make sure the words are in purple icing. As the cake says here.

20. Make sure you have “Happy Birthday” on both of these.

10710906-26369038-thumbnail

Well, they delivered. But someone took the instructors way too literally.

21. Someone wanted a 1960’s hippie party theme.

10710906-26675719-thumbnail

And what better than to have it on generic fruit cake. No tie dye, peace signs, or psychedelic patterns whatsoever.

22. Guess this is Zack’s “Birday.”

10710906-27125188-thumbnail

Yes, “Birthday” is mispelled again. Not sure why this keeps happening. Seriously, all bakeries should have spell-check.

23. Put on the “Happy Birthday Victory Song.”

10710906-27272661-thumbnail

Apparently, this cake decoraor doesn’t know it. Despite the fact I’ve heard it my whole life. Also “Birthday” is misspelled.

24. Hope Kelley enjoys this cake.

10710906-27282187-thumbnail

Okay it’s supposed to be Kelli? And I don’t think it’s supposed to include an eye. Yeah, someone messed up here.

25. A plain grass cake will always do.

10710906-27984796-thumbnail

Then again, this seems more like an abandoned pavement theme. Why anyone would want that, I don’t know.

26. Happy Birthday to one red hot mama.

10710906-27989075-thumbnail

Okay, you don’t use the “th” when doing 21. Also, being a mom at 21 isn’t a thing to aspire to, no matter how sexy. God, this is disturbing.

27. I guess someone wanted a maritime themed cake.

10710906-27989079-thumbnail

Instead, Mark got a garden carrot cake. Hope he doesn’t throw a tantrum. But at least the sea is written in.

28. A dino cake is perfect for a 1-year-old boy.

10710906-27994391-thumbnail

But dino apocalypse cake, not so much. Seriously, these dinos can go extinct at any moment. The foliage already has died.

29. Someone’s turning 30.

10710906-28007147-thumbnail

Yet, the 3 is on backwards. How is that possible? Seriously, does someone not know how numbers are written?

30. This ghosts wishes you a scary happy birthday.

10710906-28008535-thumbnail

What’s that ghost holding? Is that shit? Is the ghost covered in shit? God, that’s disgusting.

31. Leshia wanted a Frozen cake.

10710906-28055471-thumbnail

Okay, this cake was written sideways. So instead of a winter scene with a tree, it’s basically a winter scene revolving on a shit puddle. Given how the branches seem to resemble the stench.

32. You might like this Cars 1st birthday cake.

18175019324.ow.1stbdaycars

But this one has too many car rings. Seriously, you can space them out more.

33. Is this supposed to be a boob cake?

AmyWal-FB-suggestiverollerskate

For one, the decorated doesn’t know how to draw a bra as you can see? Also, this is a very inappropriate cake for a 10-year-old girl.

34. Your Irish mom deserves a shamrock cake.

AnonyM3-lw-shamrock

And I don’t think this is a shamrock. Seriously, what the hell is that?

35. Don’t forget to add a clown hat.

BenWil-TW-clownhat

As this cake specifies. But the words in parentheses make that very clear.

36. Make sure you have the letters in the right color.

cake-wrecks-in-yellow

Yes, it’s supposed to say, “Happy Birthday Tristan.” But in yellow. It’s written in black icing.

37. Some people might prefer a duck cake.

cake-wrecks-purple

And yes, the inscription is in purple icing. And yes, it’s as instructed.

38. Seems like Steven’s turning 4.

CatherineJoe-FB-StephenwithPH

But you wouldn’t know it from how is name’s spelled. Let’s hope he doesn’t know how to read. Oh wait, he might.

39. Perhaps a Barney cake could cheer you up.

chris+cau.lw.20th+bday+barney

Okay, that doesn’t look like Barney. Just a giant purple lizard, which may not be a bad thing.

40. Golden Girls fans might enjoy this cake.

courtney+sti.ow.golden+girls+bday

Who the hell are these ladies? Because they sure as hell don’t look like Golden Girls. Seriously, what the hell?

41. Apparently, someone doesn’t know how to draw a playing card.

d45642f8eae3316a872ec0d05f086c16

To be fair, they asked for a King of Hearts card as it’s written. But that’s not what they got.

42. Don’t put candles on this cake.

d539601e50ac7e884c35a242578fe195

But did they really have to write it on there. Seriously, kind of creates an awkward situation with the customer.

43. “40 Begians forever getting.”

enhanced-4901-1412879336-12

Not sure what that means. Because it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

44. Teen girls back in the 2000’s would love a Twilight cake.

enhanced-buzz-2051-1329167676-16

Uh, Twilight’s not anime. Seriously, I don’t care for Twilight and even I know this.

45. Got to have a nice cake for one’s “Bathday.”

happybathday

Yes, that’s another misspelling of “Birthday.” Because bath days aren’t really that special for a cake.

46. Any little kid would adore a cake of Cookie Monster.

image-asset

Okay, this one is freaky. Seriously, that looks nothing like Cookie Monster. More like Grover with rabies.

47. A-Rod’s cookie cake is a pizza.

image-asset1

Not that A-Rod. Still, a pepperoni pizza it does not resemble in the least. The red icing bits aren’t flat circles.

48. A lot of kids love a Minecraft cake.

image-asset2

Not that A-Rod. Still, a pepperoni pizza it does not resemble in the least. The red icing bits aren’t flat circles.

49. A girl hunter might prefer a pink camo cake.

image-asset3

Seems like someone didn’t know how to put them together. Hope my neighbors’ granddaughter never gets one like this.

50. You can see how many little girls want an Elsa birthday cake.

image-asset4

Though I really don’t care for hat hair. Seriously, Elsa’s hair looks like it’s made from Cool-Whip. Doesn’t look good.

51. After 60, it all goes downhill.

image-asset5

Yes, someone wrote that inscription while that cake’s upside down. So that’s why the balloons look like that.

52. A minion cake on the beach might be great for a kid’s party.

image-asset8

Still, the beach the seems to have a rather phallic disposition. Hope the parents can get a laugh out of that.

53. A first birthday cake should always be simple.

image-asset9

Yet, the balloons apparently resemble sperm. Sure it’s for a boy, but it’s pretty inappropriate.

54. Apparently, placement is the key.

IMG_3388_thumb

Okay, maybe not. But the cake can use some spell check. Also, it’s in pink icing.

55. Seems like you can find a birthday cake of Jabba the Hutt.

jabba-1

Uh, Jabba doesn’t look like that. He’s much more disgusting. Also, can we rather have a cake where Leia strangles him with a chain? Since that’s far more satisfying.

56. Kids might enjoy a cake of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Jess+26+Connor+W.ow.spongebob+2

What are those white cactus creatures doing here? Are they ghosts? Is SpongeBob’s ocean haunted? Oh, wait, this used to be a Halloween cake.

57. I guess this kid gets beat up in school all the time.

Jessica+Tre.ow.supposed+to+be+just+p

I’m sure the kid’s name is Peter. But I hope this cake wasn’t for a kiddie party. Because he’ll never live it down.

58. I wonder who Sticks is.

jessie2Bb.ow.misunderstanding

I’m they wanted “Happy Birthday” sticks on the cupcakes. But they got this instead for some reason.

59. All right, who’s Jocklyn?

jocklyn+w.ow.birthday

I’m sure it’s supposed to be “Jocelyn” or “Jacklyn.” Apparently, this decorator didn’t know which name to use. So we get this.

60. Always wish the birthday girl happiness.

Keith+Wya-FB-wishing+you+penis

Yet, this one says, “Ha’ penis.” Let’s hope she’s not a lesbian for obvious reasons.

61. Kerri wanted a Mercedes cake.

KerriRob-FB-peacesignmissedmark

Well, this doesn’t resemble the logo. More like an unfinished peace sign. Yeah, you have to have the slices be all equal and in silver.

62. Hello Kitty is always a popular choice.

Laura+Mef-FB-HelloKitty

But this more or less resembles a melted snowman with spray paint. Not the Japanese cartoon icon.

63. Donald thinks dragons are cool.

LeanneWu.ow.result

This dragon looks pretty lame since it doesn’t dazzle with ferocity. More like a snake with spikes.

64. Of course, people can sometimes forget your birthday.

Michael+H

Guess this is a workplace. Still, did anyone have to rub it in their face that nobody cared about their birthday? Seems kind of mean-spirited.

65. Kind of a frilly birthday cake for a guy named Bob.

morgan+and+eric+w.ow.bday+mom+misspell

Actually, it’s supposed to say, “Mom.” Yeah, someone really screwed up here.

66. So how old is Dad supposed to be?

PerryPly.ow.Dadisnumberzero

Because I don’t think he’s 10. Unless the people buying this cake are his pets or toys. Seriously, why?

67. Ranger Bud Yee Haw has a thing for flowers.

RachelFre.ow.supposedtobecowboythemed

Actually that’s a leftover Easter cake made into a birthday one. But the inscription is kind of hilarious. Also, this was supposed to be cowboy-themed.

68. Got to know where to put the words.

Rob+McD.ow.literal+On+the+top

You can see words, “On the top” and “Below.” Kind of ruins the effect, doesn’t it?

69. This Flash themed cake is rather minimalistic.

SamanthaCoo.ow.theflashthemed

This one has a lightning bolt slicing the name Connor. Nothing else.

70. Perhaps a young girl would like a butterfly cake.

Stacey.ow.pooperfly

Okay, the butterfly body resembles a turd. Let’s hope the little birthday girl doesn’t notice.

71. Nothing like a cake celebrating your legal eligibility.

untitled2

Actually the age of consent is 18. Still, this kind of gives a rather disturbing vibe. Seriously, what the fuck?

72. Arthur wanted a Mercedes Benz cake for his birthday.

vanyas-c.ow.peacesignbday

Now this is the kind of 60’s hippie party cake I’m talking about. Okay, the logos don’t quite look like peace signs. Yet, it’s probably not what this guy wanted.

73. Someone wanted a My Little Pony cake.

When-She-Wants-My-Little-Pony-Cake

And they didn’t get what they wanted. Since this cake just says, “My Little Pony.”

74. How about a birthday cake text exchange?

happy-birthday

Seriously, is this really necessary? What if it says anything embarrassing?

75. Any boy would love an Avengers birthday cake.

b-photo-u1

What are Iron Man and Captain America doing with Jes- wait, that’s supposed to be Thor? Still, it looks like something a kid would draw.

76. How about a Batman cake?

Sad-looking-Batman-cake-fail

This one features a sad Batman with a weight problem. His hands are unusually large for his arms as well.

77. Best birthday wishes to Alex.

603587_StacieSta

Not sure what this is supposed to be. But it resembles a turd floating in the ocean.

78. Any girl would enjoy a unicorn cake.

155894_unicorn-cake

Yes, one with a long, stiff, and erect horn. Okay, the horn just seems rather phallic for some reason. Like it can double as a dildo.

79. Curt is 8 by the way.

funny-photos-of-cake-fails-cunt-not-curt

However, this one doesn’t necessarily say “Curt.” I’m sure the kid will have a lot of questions on that special C-word that’s an insulting slang term for female genitalia.

80. Everyone must love a Star Wars cake.

image-asset6

Okay, this message isn’t really seem appropriate to a Star Wars fan. Also, the kid’s supposed to be 6. Why?

The Sweet Candy World of Gingerbread Architecture (Fourth Edition)

EXPS_33274_CWXCov06ClonewLights_RMS-1-696x696

A key Christmas feature is the gingerbread house. In Hansel and Gretel, this is the fairy tale equivalent of a windowless van with free candy. Anyway, on these you’ll find stuff like gum drops you’d never eat, candy canes, icing, and more. For many families, it’s a Christmas tradition that stores often sell gingerbread house kids. Now I don’t usually show them because they’re quite standard and lack much originality. But for some repressed artists, these kits are just child’s play. When you Google gingerbread houses, you come to some elaborate displays at some of these contests. Obviously a sign that some people have too much time on their hands. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of sweet gingerbread houses.

  1. Every kid dreams of a candy castle.
4c6cbf64-5ba0-49e9-b212-a2ef8eb7e4ec-smallScale_IMG_8579

Has some ice cream sundae tower tops. Even has a fountain.

2. A modern dome house is the latest in gingerbread design.

5dfd258bffae2f9f549123103f343aeb

Doesn’t look like much. But it lights from a window from the inside.

3. Feel free to walk on the winter bridge.

3cef92b52ca4d60ed10c73a51bd01035

Comes with 2 lamp posts that light up. Has frosting on the railing.

4. You can’t pass by a colorful church.

7ef945851bf36c56b2149e486b3987ab

This one has beautiful stained glass windows. Love the candy cane columns and Christmas decorations.

5. Feel free to attend a holiday party at this large mansion.

7f329505a871fdb362dc6d8d12892df2

Or is it a fancy hotel? Has wreaths on windows and 2 chimneys.

6. Enjoy the romantic atmosphere of Venice, Italy.

9be34207-3a76-47b5-94cd-5306f9ee1e33-smallScale_IMG_8490

Yes, Venice is a beautiful city despite being the 18th century Las Vegas. But now it’s basically sinking and has recently experienced floods due to climate change. So enjoy this gingerbread replica while you can.

7. Perhaps you’d prefer a quaint Christmas cottage.

11c96c2ead1f131e2eb9a2c74183ecf4

This is in a more medieval fairy tale village design. Has lights on the roof and the wreath on the door.

8. Sometimes it pays to go big.

15_Gingerbread_House

This giant gingerbread house is from Disneyland. And yes, it’s got Santa on the porch roof.

9. Care to stay at a swanky inn?
