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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

The Serial Killer:

How...?

 

The Cheapskate:

It's a professional cake... with a paper plate on it.

A PAPER PLATE.

 

The "Woohoo! Great Deal!"

Although the fact that it's on clearance does restore a little of my faith in humanity.

 

The Bakery Equivalent Of Jumping On The Counter, Mooning All Your Customers, And Demanding $19.50 For It:

And a double "Napy Berindag" on you!

 

And finally, it comes to this:

The world's most unfortunate use of "fancy Ls"

(Sorry, Jill.)

Texas Cowboy Poetry Goes Horse

Every year I try to channel my inner cowboy and write a little poetry. So sit back, relax, and try not to picture me in a Three Amigos costume*.

[*You're already doing it, aren't you? I knew it.]

 

Jed was a cowboy who wanted to sing
'Bout huntin' an' fishin' an' bein' right-wing.
As a matter of course
He camo'd his horse
But now he can't find the dang thing

("Shhhhh.")

*****

 

Is that an ear, dear?
Who knows, nose?
But that's an eye, aye?

Nice roses.

*****

 

As I ponder the existential stylings of my empty holster and overflowing chaps
BANG BANG
Finger guns!
And in the corner,
she smirks.
Stop that

*****

 

silent bug-eyed stare
why are you making that face
I hope that's a tail

*****

 

[strumming guitar]

Poop in the mane
Poop in the maaane!
It don't matter one whit
Where your horse takes a... hit
So long as there's no poop
...
in the mane.

 

Thanks to my amigos Emily F., Sandy L., Katie T., Carrie B., & Whitney K., who would definitely say that I have a plethora of poetry-penning talent. (Right? ;))
