First I want to start off by saying that NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CAKE nor do we condone animal abuse. Quite frankly I think the implication is ridiculous.
In addition we want everyone to know that we were commissioned by a client to make this cake, it was not our idea, nor does it represent how we feel about Uga or the University of Georgia. If I had a dollar for every cake we’ve done that I hated the concept, thought it was distasteful, tacky or ugly I’d be retired by now. Quite honestly we’ve made way more offensive cakes than this and didn’t even think twice, until Sunday morning that is!
Whether it’s in good taste or not I can’t say as I have a pretty warped sense of humor. I can say that the happy couple is not suggesting that someone should go out and run over Uga, the cake was made in good fun, and embodies everything that is fun with College Football Rivalries. And as you can plainly see if you take a second to Google “Uga road kill” you all rise to the occasion.
That being said, we do think it was funny, as it was intended to be, and a pretty awesome cake! We love UGA, and the fans and we’re ready to mutilate Buzz, I’ve got a ton of ideas so let’s bring it!!!!
We’ve spent the last few days wondering if we should admit that we made this cake. Why, because people have gotten so bent out of shape over what was intended to be a joke. I find it more appalling that it’s being suggested that people should boycott our bakery, and that we hate animals and UGA because we did our job. Bottom line we made a cake for a client, and it was pretty awesome cake, we’re proud of our work, not the message it implies. I also figured it’s going to come out eventually and I’d rather say we did it and take the lickin than hide like a coward.
So I’m assuming we’ll receive a ton of hate mail for admitting we created a horrific cake and we should burn, maybe we’ll have PETA or SPCA picketers, or a rock thrown through our front window, maybe our children shall be born with horns and tails. I sincerely hope not, I hope that better part of what makes College Rivalry fun is that we keep it to comments, t-shirts and on the field, and hopefully a Squashed Buzz cake as retaliation!
