Can Trailercakes Save Katy Perry and Russell Brand's Marriage? Probably.

Welcome to the return of The Box. Last time, The Grape's Brian C. Luscher turned our box of crap into a badass quail egg terrine. This time the cupcakers at Trailercakes will get a chance to turn a box of WTF into something wonderful.

Here's the challenge, as I sent it to them:

Dear Trailercakes,

Awwww, Russell Brand and Katy Perry are getting divorced. We know. We're shocked, too.

Your task:

Make two cupcakes. One for Russell Brand and one for Katy Perry. Maybe if the cupcakes are good enough, you can save their failed marriage.

You can add whatever ingredients you want, but you have to find a way to use everything in this box.

Contents of your box:

Actual apples Dr Pepper Ten Beef Jerky Red Vines Combos (pretzel and cheese) Pop Tarts (frosted strawberry) Ring Pops Starburst Nerds (Rainbow) Kool-Aid (Tropical Fruit) 3/4 bottle Honey Jack Daniels (I was thirsty)

The Box was dropped off Wednesday morning. Next week we'll post their Big-Boobed-Pop-Star-And-What-The-Hell-Does-Russell-Brand-Do-Besides-Walk-And-Talk-Funny-Marriage-Saving creations. Good luck and Godspeed, Trailercakes. We're counting on you. (Sorry about the Combos.)
