Jen C. ordered a plain cake - no special decorations - with the word "family" on it.
Omigosh, you guys.
I'm STILL laughing over what she got.
I feel like the baker really doubled down on the word "plain" here.
Christine ordered a pool party cake for her daughter's birthday, but forgot to tell the baker to hold the nudity. See, you fell for the classic blunder, Christine!Always tell them to hold the nudity.
SUN'S OUT BUNS OUT
Let's go in for a closer look, shall we?
My favorite part is the bobbing boobs. Apparently the water's a bit nippy!
And finally, when Kylie's mom ordered her and her boyfriend a birthday cake she didn't want any awkward sibling stuff in the decorations, so she told the baker, "They're not brother and sister, they're boyfriend/girlfriend." You know, just to be clear.
Thank goodness the baker took such careful notes:
"there big Girl friend!"
Nope, I couldn't have said it better myself.
Thanks to Jen C., Christine M., & Kylie F. for pointing out where the big Girl friend is. We were all wondering.
So I haven't worn matching jewelry since my Best Friend necklace in middle school, but these keychains are SO CUTE for either couples or friends:
Some of you have never checked your local bakery for paranormal activity, minions, and it shows.
"You're right; no HUMAN BEING would decorate cakes like this."
And just think, if you find any, you can blame your wrecks on ghosts! Which sounds WAY cooler than blaming "Pam from the deli," 'cuz lets be honest, that's not fooling anyone. WE ALL KNOW THERE'S NO PAM.
Twenty five years of being the virtual scapegoat. Bummer.
OK, first things first: get a bunch of friends together, turn off all the lights, and film each other screaming in the dark.
"Okay, who brought the dog?!"
Then, when everyone's good and winded, head over to the bakery to start checking for ghosts.
Now, sometimes the signs are incredibly subtle, so be on the lookout for anything even slightly "off."
There are a few common symptoms of spectral shenanigans, though:
1) Bleeding Cakes
Well there's something you don't see every day.
2) DVPs, or "Distorted Voice Phenomena"
"I swear that's what they said on the phone!"
Ahh, it's the unexplained sponge migration all over again. (You forget: I WAS THERE.)
3) Inexplicable Creepiness
And hey, if any of you do see an actual ghost, I know exactly what to do:
And bring ice cream.
Thanks to Beth S., Lisa V., Carolyn, Jackie M., Marissa I., Victoria G., Cheryl C., Ana S., Brianne A., Rachel G., & Amy S. for picking up the phone and calling the prefessionals: WRECK BUSTERS.
Wow, you guys, Playmobil is really stepping up their Ghostbusters line. Have you seen this?
Their Ecto-1 play set is blowing my mind: silicone slime! Lights and sound! Winston & Janine! I bet you more adults than kids are putting this on their wish lists right now, hah.
Also if you're a big GB fan like me, then you must watch the commercial on Playmobil's Stay Puft listing. And watch it all the way to the end! SO CUTE.
"I gave them a napkin so they could match the icing colors to it. But instead..."
Lisa P. wanted her friend's birthday to be a critical success, but we all know how ordering a cake is a roll of the dice:
MERCER HAVE MERCY
(That one's for you, Critters)
And finally, Jeff H. writes:
"I have a friend who recently became a US citizen. I went to the bakery and asked for a cake with a United States flag on it. Here's what I got. The baker, a lady in her late 20's, commented, 'I even got the red star to come out good!'"
Thanks to Jill, Lisa, and Jeff for making us break out the rare quadruple facepalm.
Hey, any of you collect dice? Because these metal sets come in over 40 different colorways(!!), and I want them all:
