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? ;)

Merry Misfits

Unfortunately, these guys tend to get passed over come pageant time.

First there's Ginger, the deranged, dandruff-riddled cookie:

Sure she's a bit flaky, but be careful; Ginger snaps.

Then there's Harry, the five o'clock shadow elf:

As you can see, Harry likes to make a pig of himself.

Poopsie & Flopsie always know how to bring the holiday cheer:

Yep. Once they leave, everyone is MUCH more cheerful.

Humpty here likes to talk with his hands:

I would translate, but there are children present.

Then there's Tiny:

I tried to warn Tiny about cutting in front of that shaman, but would he listen? Noooo.

[singing] But do you recaaall...

The most famous misfit of all?

Yes, it's...

Poo-Dolph, the Bulldozed, Slain Deer!

Jessica S.,
Kim C., Erin F., Mike Y., & Anony M., I totally need Poo-Dolph on a t-shirt.

Charity for the day nomination - Three Hots and A Cot - - a group of veterans who is working to provide transitional housing to homeless veterans. There are 132,000 homless veterans in the USA - they have sacrificed and served for us and our freedoms - now it is time we serve them. We are a 501c3 organization and could use every dollar to help get these men and women off the streets. We never left a man behind on the battlefield - we can not leave them behind on the streets of America. Thank you for your consideration and God Bless. JD Simpson - Executive Director Three Hots and A Cot

poodolph the bulldozed slain deer
had a very flattened nose
and if you ever saw it
you could even say it's gross
all of the other slain deer
used to laugh and call him maimed
they wouldnt let poor poo dolph
join in any slain deer games
then one foggy christmas eve
santa came to say
what the heck did i step in
scraping poo dolph off my shoe
now poo dolph's very smushy

and his face is in the trash
just goes to show what happens
if you end up on cake wrecks in the first place!
(see, I don't have to rhyme)

Everyone together now!
"Poo-Dolph, the Bulldozed, Slain Deer
had a very flattened nose!
And if you ever saw it,
you would even say . . .
say . . . uh . . ."
Crap, I can't think of anything to add. I'm laughing too hard.

Jen, I know now what to sing during Christmas. And if people ask me why I'm singing that, I shall direct them to this blong to cure of the horrible disease of not knowing what your blog is.
