What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Wreck Busters!

It's National Paranormal Day, which makes this an EXCELLENT time to check your bakery for paranormal activity, wreckerators.

"You're right; no HUMAN BEING would decorate cakes like this."

 

Just think, if you find any, you can blame your wrecks on ghosts! Which sounds WAY cooler than blaming "Pam from the deli," 'cuz lets be honest, that's not fooling anyone. WE ALL KNOW THERE'S NO PAM.

Twenty five years of being the virtual scapegoat. Bummer.

 

OK, first things first: get a bunch of friends together, turn off all the lights, and film each other screaming in the dark.

"Okay, who brought the dog?!"

 Then, when everyone's good and winded, head over to the bakery to start checking for ghosts.

 

Now, sometimes the signs are incredibly subtle, so be on the lookout for anything even slightly "off."

 

 

There are a few common symptoms of spectral shenanigans, though:

1) Bleeding Cakes

Well there's something you don't see every day.

 

2) DVPs, or "Distorted Voice Phenomena"

"I swear that's what they said on the phone!"

Ahh, it's the unexplained sponge migration all over again.
(You forget: I WAS THERE.)

MASS HYSTERIA.

 

3) Inexplicable Creepiness

Why?

 

Why??

 

DANGIT "PAM."

 

And hey, if any of you do see an actual ghost, I know exactly what to do:

GET HER!!!

And bring ice cream.

 

Thanks to Beth S., Lisa V., Carolyn, Jackie M., Marissa I., Victoria G., Cheryl C., Ana S., Brianne A., Rachel G., & Amy S. for picking up the phone and calling the prefessionals: WRECK BUSTERS.

Get Your Red Pens Ready, Teachers

Teachers, this is your week - but what can I say about you unsung heroes that hasn't already been said?

 

I mean, in relation to teaching?

Ahahahahhahahaha! Ahah. Ha. Yeeeah.

Ahem.

 

Look, teachers, you know how much we need you.

 

Heck, just a quick jaunt around this blog makes it painfully obvious.

 

 

 

So please, let me just be the latest of many to say:

We REALLY need more of you art teachers out there.

I mean, really. This is just SAD.

 

And also: Thank you, teachers. Please don't ever leave us. Because if you've secretly been banding together to send in all these cakes showing how much we need you, well...

 

Thanks to Christina, Jane B., Kahre B., Jennifer B., Leah P., Laura K., Erin, & McKenzie A. for taking us to school.
