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? ;)

Minions, Report!

Thank you all for coming to the evil Wrecky henchpersons meeting. There's only one item of business today, so I'll be brief in briefing you with the brief:

Cake Wrecks is up for Funniest Blog at the '09 BlogLuxe Awards.

I'd be super psyched to win it.

Like, super super psyched.

You can vote once a day now through July 6th, simply by typing in your e-mail address.

That is all. Dismissed!

(Oh, and since there are about a billion blogs on the list, you might have a hard time finding Cake Wrecks. I'd advise using the "find" tool on your web browser.)

Good luck.

Going to vote now!!

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnna Kauz

I really like this site. It's entertaining and unique. But I don't think it's the funniest one out there. It's one of many that I read in a day..but not the first one I would turn to for humor.

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Voted. It would be so much easier to find you if they put it in alphabetical order!

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAgatha

Will be voting twice per day, one for each blog.
Hope you win! Then we all get a CCC right?

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Fam

Click on best eye candy, click in the field, then run your search for "cake" they are about half way down. DONE!

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAdy

I voted for you, but I have to be honest... I think The Bloggess is just as funny so I'm going to have to switch off voting for her too. :-)

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Fowler

Vote number 2030 :-) Good luck!

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCountessLaurie

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Done. It's nice being a minion:)

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFedelm

Can you possibly repost this every day, so that my reader constantly picks it up and I can remember to keep going back to revote for you? Otherwise, I will forget. I voted today, but it would be nice to have a reminder of some sort :-)

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I tried to vote again with a different email address. Apparently you need to wait at least 30 minutes to do this (or maybe reset the cookies?).

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Mommy Wants Vodka is ahead by 2,000 votes. Come on, we can do this!!

Word verification:
Prominis - the prominis of votes for cakewrecks was astounding.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMeagan

Careful everyone (who are planning on voting)... Cakewrecks is up for +2+, one funniest and one best eye candy. If you only vote for one and not the other, it means it won't add up right for Cakewrecks.

Which... ah.. is probably me stating the obvious, but well... okay.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEm

so glad you changed the cover!!
good luck with your new book!
going on a book tour? I have a great library who would love you~!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTammy Jo

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe musishian

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

Within the funniest category, I don't know whether my vote went for this blog or the one on top of it. In Firefox, I can't tell where the real CakeWrecks voting button is. Eeek!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAuntie Meme

Well, fudge, I did it wrong today. Will make up for it, though. *wink*

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAuntie Meme

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I nominated you for best guily pleasure, cause everyone gives me crap for reading cakewrecks, so I now have to hide in a broom closet with my laptop to indulge. Though, I feel no guilt, I just get tired of their harping. Oh, and of course I voted for ya for funniest.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commentergrimperspective

Done! Happy to vote for such an awesome blog.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRyan and Shannon
