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? ;)

Agh! I tried to RSVP for Framingham, but I use firefox and gmail , not IE or Outlook. Darn my forward thinking.

But I will be there, been following this blog to long not to be.

Yay!! You're coming to the Boston area. Boo!! You'll be way out in Framingham. We're going to try to make it; it would certainly be worth the drive.

I'm bummed that you're not coming to San Diego, but I'm glad the tour is back on track!

October 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Gosh, I'm really impressed by all the votes for Utah and Idaho! Who knew there were so many of us snarky cake lovers out here? :)

Here's hoping Round Two treats you better!

Framingham! Yippee skippee -- well worth the drive, and it'll be *great* to see you.

Come to south Alabama!!!! (Mobile area )You would get a chance to see soooooo much wreckation. There's this lady at the local Bruno's who loves to make those ridiculous dog cup cakes that look more like a ragged old mop......Atlanta is just to far ma'am! Don't make me cry. Cuz I will. Not kidding.

October 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

*whine* Why no Michigan?! Come to the Mitten State!!!

...Please?.... Pretty please?

You know you want to! You KNOW you want to specifically come to the Metro Detroit area. *nodding head furiously*

October 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStefanie

October 23, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterhamwrap

Im gonna have to sigh here... *sigh*... because as usual, New York's there and it's tiny, ignored neighbor, New Jersey, is not...

LOL, I'm not really that sad! I hope you have a TERRIFIC time!!!

October 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPeggie Quin

Can't we PLEASE OH PLEASE have a book date in Raleigh, NC?

October 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKim From Jersey

Drats! I wish I could make it to the one in Atlanta! Of course, if you NEEDED to add a date in Savannah...

October 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMicco

Come to Nashville! :-)

October 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLacey

What no stop in Bismarck ND? I do see someone also requested Fargo. Always enjoy your blog especially the Sunday Sweets.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

I agree with some of the other posters. It can't be a "world tour" without at least coming to Canada as well. And of course Calgary would be a great place to start. :)

November 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I second a vote for NM.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTamara

Definitely think you should come to Canada - Toronto would be great!!!

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBreanne
