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? ;)

How to Fail in Spelling Without Really Trying

Dustin G. sent in this lovely bit of irony purchased for the cast of a show called - you guessed it - "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." If you're feeling charitable, you can tell yourself the decorator misspelled "without" on purpose. If you're not, you can also nitpick the extra-wide spacing.

What's that? Taxes are due today? Grrr. Right, so, dudes: What is UP with that crazy double-spacing, eh?

I was listening to an NPR blurb about SpongeBob this morning. Apparently it's his ten year anniversary and 18 million adults watch him per month!

I know, this one's old (currently prowling the archives). I've discovered an oddity I have the cake decorator may share: when handwriting something, I tend to duplicate my most common typos for the words in question, and "wihtout" is a very easy typo to make for "without".
