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? ;)

"World" Tour, Take #2!

That's right, Wrecks fans, we are in the process of rescheduling all of the missed stops on the Cake Wrecks "World" Tour! First up is Austin, where John and I will be this Saturday. Yep, never let it be said that we are not devoted to you, our dear, devoted readers. Why, wild strains of bacterial infections cannot keep us away! (Well, not for very long, anyway.)

Click here for details and to RSVP for Austin. Or keep an eye on the right hand sidebar; I'll be updating the links and dates for Kansas City, New York, and Bethesda as I have them.

Congrats to John on kicking the bacteria to the curb! I'm glad you're both doing well, and I'm SO glad that you'll still be coming to New York. Maybe with the new date, I'll be able to BE there! :D I mean, especially because the new logo is so cute. ;)

Bless your sweet, fondant covered hearts! Good for you for pushing forward like gooey, wrecky pioneers. So, patch the holes in your shoes with a cupcake and finish that tour! (but take it easy, would ya?)

It's really great to hear that John is doing better, and congrats on being able to continue the tour (and thanks for still wanting to!). I'm looking forward to seeing the rescheduled KC date. I couldn't have gone on Monday, but maybe I'll get to see you after all!

Cake Wrecks- How I love you!

That is the most tragically adorable logo I have ever seen in my life.

Ok, the new logo is AWESOME. Just... AWESOME. Love it! Wish I could make it to Austin, but it's just a wee bit out of my driving range. Too bad it's not San Antonio. Maybe next time; a girl can hope!

Hold on there, buckeroos. What doctor thought that continuing the "World Tour" constituted rest and relaxation? Are you out of your rabbit-assed minds? And both of you better be wearing surgical masks! Especially John whose immune system must be nonexistent. And make him wear a motorcycle helmet too. Are elbow and knee pads necessary as well?

OMG That carrot jockey logo is hysterical!

I'm glad to hear John's doing better, and you're rescheduling... but wouldn't it be a BETTER world tour if you came to Las Vegas? Puhleease?

On an 11-year-old's science exam: "Three kinds of blood vessels are arteries, vanes, and caterpillars."

Glad to hear John's vanes and caterpillars are infection free now.

Can't wait to see you in NY!

Wonderful news - hope the rest of the tour goes well?

When are you coming to Europe? I'm sure we can offer more exotic diseases... I mean wrecks.

Love the new logo! Great that you're all healed up and going again! Better luck this time, from snowy (yes, snowy!!!) Alberta, Canada!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLorraine

You're awesome! Can't wait til you get to D.C.!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Love the changes to the logo! Glad to hear John is well enough to restart the tour. Hopefully I'll see you at the rescheduled KC stop.

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecca

Wish you could extend your "world" tour to Canada? I would be first in line!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSaRa

I am so glad that everyone is well, and that y'all are rolling again. I still don't see Tallahassee on the Tour list. ::pout::

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjjterlouw

Way to rally!
I was lucky enough to see you two in Portland before all the illness, and I can assure your fans it is worth the wait!
Wishing you an uneventful rest of the tour---you deserve it!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLesa Pinker

So glad to hear you are both feeling better. I send you best wishes for the tour redux. Please don't try to do too much too soon. I speak with heartfelt concern and experience as someone who regretfully ignored following the doc's cautionary words after a bout with pneumonia.... I thought I was invincible but time and those lingering infectious bugs proved otherwise and led to a major relapse.

So glad John is feeling better and the tour is back on - not that you're coming anywhere near the god-forsaken hellhole where I reside. Not that I blame you either.

The new logo is just begging to be slapped on t-shirts and tote bags! I want it!

For John:

Two blondes walk into a building. You'd think one of them would've seen it.

I don't usually comment on here, but when I heard that you were both sick, John especially, I felt I should.

Super glad to hear that you're both feeling better and ready to take on the world again. I wish you a speedy recovery!

Great to hear you're resuming the tour ASAP. I just wish you two were coming to San Diego. :(

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Glad you are both healing.

Please tell me you will make this new logo into a t-shirt. I want one!

October 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWendy K

It's bigger! It's badder! It has a twitching brow! It's the Wreckmeisters! Beating, folding, and whipping won't keep 'em down.

I love the revised logo!

You guys are TOUGH, man! Maybe for this part of the tour, you can get limo's and hand-servants. Seriously, ask your publishers!!! All in the name of recuperation :)

Thank you for thinking of us and continuing the tour, but don't forget to think of yourselves. We don't want you to burn out just yet, I'd have nothing to do at work!

You two are awesome. So glad you're back in the saddle. Or riding the carrot. Or something.

Unless you are coming to southern Ohio, I won't be able to attend the tour - but I LOVE the logo!

Glad that everyone is feeling better.

Glad John is feeling better and you're back on the road. Looking forward to your arrival in Bethesda! We're bringing my 2-month-old granddaughter to meet you--no mohawk, no carrot. But love the tour logo!

I think that you're moving too fast here...don't you need time to properly recover?

And if you go anywhere at all, it should be Hawaii, for proper R&R.

I hope the KC stop is resceduled soon!!
