embarrassing cake designs

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Sorry - I'm not a cake baker, I'm a cake eater.  And I love to buy cakes for friends/family that are unique to them.  Every year I work very hard to have a cake from my brother that is better than the previous year.  Considering he is OLD - approaching 70 - it's getting more and more difficult.  Last year was the best - a local bakery has something called their "poop cake" which says "Older than S___".  It is disgustingly funny.

 

Any ideas out there for something?  This bakery said if I come up with an idea they will bake it.  Any help in making this the most embarrassing birthday for my brother is greatly appreciated!

i love that kind of humor!!

 

my sister and i have sent each other 'mean' birthday cards forever--we don't even always wait for the birthday either

 

but one year i got this thick bulky manilla envelope that held of all things--all the cards i had sent her over the years --i'm like wth---and she had crossed out my signature and wrote hers on all of them!!!!!!  party.gif  icon_lol.gif

 

so anyway--i'm into it!!!

 

i can only think of a cake that looks like a big saggy wrinkled sorry prune and an inscription that says.

 

"happy birthday prune face"

 

but your "older than ____" kinda trumps the prune idea

 

maybe the prune, flat on his back looking up, could be holding a bunch of daisies???

 

would love to hear what you come up with

 

hey--not to mention-- 70 is the new 60 -- hahahahahaha icon_biggrin.gif

You could make him a 'kitty litter' cake, I made one for my brother-in-law a few years back.  It is something you could do yourself, the recipe can be looked up online.  It uses a chocolate and vanilla cake mix, instant pudding, vanilla sandwich cookies and tootsie rolls.  It is made in a cat litter box (buy a new one!) and looks very real.  It's worth looking them up online, they are great, although I'm not sure that too many people actually eat it as it is pretty disgusting!

I've seen a few grim reaper cakes on here with 'Calm down Dave, I'm only here for the cake' type thing written on it, I don't know about embarrassing but made me laugh and laugh and laugh...

Here's one that is for a woman but could be a man. It's a police officer cake. The speed they clock is the age. See picture

Sorry to go off topic a bit, but one year, I forgot to buy my sister a card...  so I got out a Christmas card that was left from a selection box of cards...  it was a really, really horrible card.  Tacky Victorian snow scene, if I recall...    Anyway, I got a marker pen and crossed out the word 'Christmas' and wrote 'Birthday' above it.

 

Then inside, I wrote

 

To you

 

Happy birthday

 

From me

 

 

And I gave her the card (her birthday is in April).

 

Guess what I got back from her when it was my bday in June! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

 

And guess what she got the following year?

 

And guess what I got?

 

And so it's been going on!!!!!!!!

Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!

i'm sure you've seen & done the 'over the hill' cakes probably

 

but you can make a great caricature out of the person laying over the hill

 

you could put different pill bottles or mile markers scattered up & down each side of 'the hill'

 

like a bottle labeled 'youth' and all the pills are all decayed and scattered all over or if it's a mile markeriit's knocked down & weather beaten

 

then on the other side pill bottles labeled 'geritol', 'for baldies'

 

put out clothes pins to help hold up sagging skin

 

timers to remind you not to forget, magnifying glass, wrinkle remover etc.

Ha ha ha K8, fabulous fabulous suggestions! I do a gross cake every halloween purely to satisfy my own humour it's great fun! How about a turtle/tortoise on its back, feet waggling in the air, if a funeral reef on its belly saying "near enough" the is too harsh a pile of daisy's like k8 suggested would be great icon_smile.gif

Or or (thanks relznik for the inspiration) a really tacky Xmas cake with merry Christmas blatantly crossed out and happy birthday piped above.... You could ask for it to look dusty like it's sat on a shelf for months or add mushrooms growing out if it...... No fair I want you as my customer!! Lol

Ha ha I love it, can't stop laughing at the dog and yellow snow idea.... It could dribble down one side of the cake and pool in the board!
