Whenever possible, when we make a cake based on a TV show or movie, we watch it to get a feel for the character or thing that we’re going to make. This cake if based on South Park’s episode “Hell on Earth 2006.” We knew the episode, but it’s just good research to sit back and laugh and remember it again. It’s a tough research job, but somebody has to do it.
South Park Hell on Earth 2006 Acura Cake
In the episode, Satan is the star planning his special Halloween party like the girls from MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16″. Everything must be perfect, extravagant, and exactly like the most incredible party of his dreams. Only the special people are invited, dressed the way Satan wants, excited for the great reveal at midnight–a life-size Ferrari cake. Except the Ferrari was ruined, and Satan’s minions were only able to get a last minute life-size Acura cake. Satan is dressed up like Britney Spears as he whines about not getting everything he wanted for his party, screaming “It’s all about me!!!”
The crowd is disgusted by Satan’s tantrum, one guest saying “C’mon Helen, I’m suddenly not so hungry for Acura cake.” It’s then that Satan realizes he’s acting like the spoiled girls from “My Super Sweet 16″, apologizes and opens the doors to everyone because the party is only great with everyone there having fun with him.
It's All About Me!
Erin knows her husband, Adrain, so well. She knew he would love the dreaded Acura cake that looks like a cake piped in icing, against a backdrop of Satan’s Halloween party. Adrian’s face is beaming on the body of Satan, and Butters is dancing like a crazy boy. I just loved the excitement of Erin when we handed her husband’s birthday surprise cake to her. She sent us a wonderful email to let us know that Adrian loved it, too:
“My husband was so surprised! He loved the cake! The first thing he did was send pictures to all his friends and family, and they all loved it too! He didn’t want to cut or eat it because he said it was way too cool! He did finally cut it last night when a few members of his family came over to wish him a happy birthday, and he said it was delicious! He was also really psyched to see his cake on your website! He wanted me to tell you thank you so much, and that you are masters of your craft! Thank you for helping me make his birthday so special, I can’t tell you how much that means to me!”
Just seeing Erin’s excitement when she saw the cake was great. It means so much to hear that the birthday boy had a great birthday with the cake, too. Happy Birthday Adrian!
