Cake Mistake

Wilton is the king of all things cake decorating. I will admit I never would think of decorating a cake for my kid. I would order one from my local bakery instead. I can appreciate the techniques used to make these cakes, but honestly, that bear looks possessed. The bear is staring into the eyes of the kid, transmitting the message “Happy birthday! Now I will eat your soul.”

Playboy Bunny Cake Pan

Awful Cake Pans

Wilton Playboy Bunny Cake Pan

Submitter: A lot of libraries allow you to take out cake pans for all those people who want to try out a fun new idea for their birthday cakes. Most pans are fine, what kid wouldn’t want a fire truck or a dog shaped cake at their party? But I can see this pan sitting lonely on the shelf, while the library’s hundred other cake pans are circulated through. Why? Because it’s the Playboy Bunny Cake Pan. Yes, a cake pan in the shape of the Playboy bunny, that “celebrated symbol most men know and love! It’s bound to liven up birthdays, bachelor parties, Father’s Day and more.” If it wasn’t enough to just get the pan, there’s also a pdf that shares the decoration instructions and the back of the label with its 2 fun decorating ideas; one of which is Christmas themed. Since nothing says Merry Christmas like the Playboy Bunny wearing a cheery Christmas bow tie. Looking at the pictures, it’s clear that only people with lots of time on their hands will follow the instructions. I can’t see anyone checking this pan out anytime soon.

HollyThis is funny! It isn’t just any bunny cake; the Playboy Bunny has a very distinctive shape. It is recognizable by most adults. I’d totally check this out (but, then, I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy).
