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? ;)

Ode to Irony

This is poetry in frosting, folks. In fact, I think I feel a Haiku coming on…

Sweet tasting mistakes,
Such standards for our children:
Weep for our future.

Thanks to Monique R., one of my dedicated "Wreckporters", for the pic.

Richard Mitchell, brilliant commentator on education said it thusly:

"Minimum competency testing will ensure precisely that."

Be very careful what you wish for.

i like this CCC... in concept. The postage stamp like framing inherent in all CCCs works well on a farewell cake.

The spelling errors and the mutant starfish (which i'm consistently seeing as maple leaves, despite the palm tree background for some reason)kind of detract in this particular case though.
