Fugly Birthday Cake….how low can we go?

12 Mar

happy birthday cakeOn the 23rd March, we will be celebrating a birthday.

Not D Man’s, although he’s turning 3 soon, nor is it Kiki’s first birthday, although that is looming also.

On the 23rd of March, 2012, I posted my first blog, after two of my dear friends cajoled me into starting a project one morning at the park.
I had been complaining of feeling like I was dying creatively, and in danger of disappearing into a waft of insignificance.

At their suggestion my initial thought was –

 ‘What on Earth do I have to say?’

– And wouldn’t you know it, it would appear I have a whole lot to say.

I’m no longer dying or in fear of disappearing, and I can’t believe how fast this first year has gone. I think we could fairly safely say I’ve embraced all things blog.

I’ve made new cyber friends, had amazing exchanges of thoughts and the support I’ve received upon the interwebs has been wonderful and now I feel like it’s time to give something back.

Birthdays are great for many reasons, but none more than CAKE.

Happy Birthday, Justin......you're not a total twerp, you're just misunderstood.

I’ve decided that I’m going to make Keeping Up With The Holsbys a birthday cake…..but it will not be like any old cake ordinaire, oh no. It won’t.

Where’s the fun in that?

I recently posted really freaky-looking cakes and meatloaves shaped like babies (don’t google Meatloaf baby, you can never un-see that) on my Facebook page, and it made me decide I was ready for a cake challenge.

Say it with a heart cake.

We know I’m a croissant-making, smarty-pants, over-achiever, so let’s try a challenge of a different kind –

An inappropriate, or fugly, cake challenge.

Is a uterus cake ever appropriate?

That’s right, folks, I’m going to try my hand at cake decorating for your viewing pleasure, and you’re going to decide what I make.

I wonder if Grandma was at the baby shower?

There is no suggestion to weird, too gross, or too inappropriate, and the one that I deem the most hilarious, I will attempt to make, eat and blog.

I could never kill Hoot, but Hootabelle?

For a little inspiration I’ve found some truly awful, and strangely awesome, baked delights.

I would serve this one in a cake potty, of course.

Drop your suggestion on my Facebook page or in the comments, and let’s get baking!

If I find it too hard to choose I may be forced to put it to a vote, cos we’ll all democratic and shit over here in Holsbyville…..

50 shades of wrong.

I’m hooking up with EssentiallyJess and the ibots today…..cos it’s Tuesday and that’s how we roll.

    I’ve seen some off-side baking in my time, but that potty takes the errr. well you know what I’m saying. Can’t wait to see what you come up with – there are so many dastardly minds on the interwebs,

    It’s amazing that so many people have spent so much time and effort creating things that are so truly fugly! I have to say though – there’s a kind of “anti-brilliance” to them that I really like. It’s a little bit subversive and a whole lot of gross but like a car crash you just can’t look away 🙂

    I just had a flashback of my bachelorette party cake. It was 3D. I’m sure you can figure it out!

    Man those are some disturbing cakes – what about a self-portrait cake?

    Congratulations on 1 year. A fugly birthday cake…what about a waterbirth cake? Beautiful in concept but not a scene that makes me hungry.

    Ohhh! Not a good post to look at on a day when I’m feeling poorly…
    I really like the uterus cake – you could use raspberry licorice for the fallopian tubes! Or you could do a placenta cake – made with real placenta!
    Ugh! I just made myself sick!

    I’m so glad I haven’t eaten lunch today! Um, I vote for a laptop shaped cake!

    Excellent cakes! I love a good, really weird cake. Why go boring when you can go outrageous! What about a screaming babies in a birds nest cake?

    What about a julia gillard or tony abbott cake? It might be a little hard to eat though…. 😉
