If I ever made myself a wedding cake [1], it would have to have an abominably tacky topper. Like Tripp and T'Pol from Enterprise, the Bendy wedding topper that used to be in the Archie McPhee catalog, or perhaps a gnome seesaw. It's actually a garden sculpture, but it's no more of a troutrage [2] than a wedding cake made out of donuts or snack food products.

Actually, after all the inspiration I've gotten from watching Ace of Cakes on Food Network, I'd probably eschew the topper for fireworks.



1. If I could go to culinary school and just wank all day with fondant and spun sugar I would probably die of happiness.
2. Troutrage is a combination of travesty + outrage, coined by suburbfabulous.

for those interested in the coining of words, you should check out Wordlustitude. it is fabulous.

an aside: whenever i see "wordlust" i think in my head "wordslut". i like my version better.

At the actual Archie McPhee store, at the checkout counter they've got a Wedding Couple, where the Groom's a Resident. It's not for sale. But you could probably make one. Either way, it's wicked rad.

*swoons*

Sadly, the Bendy Couple is no longer available in their catalog. I think I'd have to trek to their store to acquire one now. (Not that it would be a bad thing, it just wouldn't be until sometime next year or later.)

You could perhaps write to them -- or just get a bunch of the mystery boxes and hope they throw one in! Sometimes they throw in stuff that they've got discontinued but overstock on.

Also, with Ace Of Cakes, man, Mötörhead SO better do the theme song.

That's Ice Of Kaiks, to get all phonetic about it.

Troutrage... pretty much sums up my first marriage.
