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.)

UGH. Inappropriately used quotation marks are one of my biggest pet peeves!!

OMG, Auntie Meme! I'm on Firefox & now I'm questioning whether I voted correctly or for some other blog. Yikes!

That Anon. comment is v. funny: "Let me explain logically why you're not as funny as The Bloggess." Sheesh.

GOOD LUCK! :-) Minion Hali

Lol. Wow, you are smoking them! I only had to find the one with the most votes. You have over 3,000 while most have 9,10, maybe 20 >.< WTG!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWolfMistress09

I voted too! But I'm scared!!! What the heck are the following blogs doing ahead of you in votes!?

Mommy Wants Vodka
Girl About Town

ARG! We need to get our wreckiness together and take over the world!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterUark2003

Voted for both.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

Never posted before, so hello! I am gonna vote for you and hope you win. I went to your facebook page and didn't see the Call to Vote. If you haven't done so already, please put the announcement of FB too.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'll vote for you if you vote for me. :) My blog is up in the Tastiest category (Bake at 350). Nothing like a little bribery in the morning. ;)

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBridget

I couldn't cast my vote in good conscience without first doing my homework, so I checked out the other leading contenders--hoping for a laugh, if nothing else--and ptooey! Not even a snicker. Nothing compares to you, Jen.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commentercakewreck fiend

4000+ votes. And it's only 8am on the West Coast.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMrs. B

aaahhhh!!! In the funniest blog category the leader has over 5000 votes...we are just over 4000....get out there and vote fellow minions...

We are also in the Eye Candy can vote in both places!!! GO GO GO!!!!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBonnie

your minions have indeed reported. last time i checked, you were about 4,000 votes ahead.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMorgan

Hi, someone has probably already mentioned it, but I found Cake Wrecks in the Eye Candy blog catagory as well.

Voted in both :)

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPhoenix

Whooo-hoooo! I voted for you in both categories. You make me laugh every single day, not just once in a while. (I checked out a couple of the other blogs, and ho-hummm!)
Go, Jen!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commentereilbeback

You got my vote! This is one of the most original and FUNNIEST reads around! I LOVE what you do! The photos are funny to begin with, but the commentary is downright HILARIOUS!


Alright, I did some calculating and list making (because that's what I do) and here's the deal so far...At time of voting in the Funniest category, there are only 6 blogs in the thousands. CakeWrecks is in second with 4855, being beaten only by Girl About Town (damn her!) who's at 5871. Knowing the dedication of wreckporters out there, I think we can do this for Jenn.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Uh oh, the "bye, bye, pie!" blog appears to be catching up with 3822 votes to your 4904...

Cake Wrecks clearly gets the vote if for no other reason than you're improving Korean kids' English grammar.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdessertschick

4907 and counting!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBekah

So, do you watch Venture Brothers? You should if you don't.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi 'n' Jeff

Done, hopefully.

It is less than clear which "VOTE!" tab to select---the one on top or below the Cakewrecks name.

Pretty sure I got it right but it's only 1pm on the west coast and I haven't had enough caffeine yet.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeanne

I nominated you last week for the "Best Eye Candy" blog so it's good to see you showing up there, though there's not as much love. Only 300 something votes, so we better get cracking!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter*Meg Larsen*

I voted! You make me laugh everytime I visit :)

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

It's almost unfair for you to be up for these awards... case in point, i just went to vote and saw this as your tally
Cake Wrecks
5600 votes

come on?? the second place person has 933... really, kids?? no contest ;-)

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

oh i'm dumb... but you're still winning, mommy wants vodka has 4951 votes at 9:36pm and you have 5600 votes

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

oh no TASTIEST blog you only have 22 votes!!! come on wreckporters

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

Woohoo, votes were 5000++ at last count! First place at the moment! But we have to keep voting, because the 2nd place is nearing to 5000 now. Go! Go! Go!

Btw, votes for Cake Wrecks for the Best Eye Candy category is rather.. abysmal. I thought this category rather suits Cake Wrecks. We should vote for this category too. We can vote for multiple categories on the same day using the same e-mail address.

Anyhoo, will keep on voting (as long as I remember). Haha!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAdy

Ops, my bad. We're actually second as Girl About Town has 6800 votes... Wow, that's quite amazing actually. But we can do better.. I hope. Get cracking people! Haha..

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAdy

second place!! wow, and a long way ahead of third... Gratz so far... now lets go get that Girl around town!

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

6087 !!! You're way ahead !!!

Good luck !! Thanks for a daily laugh :)

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Looks like points range from 6241 to 1... You're 6241. I didin't see anyone else with 1000 or more. I reckon you're safe.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

I'll gladly vote for you: this blog is the only one I've found that makes me laugh out loud (and occasionally wet my pants). (I'll deny that, but it has happened.) Your comments are what make it so very precious. Thanks for the hilarity.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterroballen

Wow, you're up for three categories! Unfortunately, I don't know if I'd call this blog particularly tasty. I mean, bad punctuation and babies riding carrots aren't particularly appetizing...

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJena

"Girl About Town" still in the lead, and by 1000 votes. Jeez....

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterA-not-Ansel

Jen, you're nominated in 3 categories, come one, let's get that posted on the main page and get everyone going - I want to see a Blog Hat Trick victory, here!

(Look, I'm Canadian, it's all about hockey, okay?)

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBarb

Please stress to your (more careless) readers (like me) that you may vote once a day, every day (!) for the blogue of your choice. And it's OK if it's the same one every day. It took me four days to figure this out (despite the fact that you told us).

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterA-not-Ansel

Just did my daily vote and noticed that they found a bunch of spam/illegal votes and Girl About Town, previously CakeWrecks' only real competiter, is now down to 1260 votes. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA World Wrecky domination is ours!!! I mean...Jen's!!!!!

June 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I just voted for the 2nd time and you have nearly 7,000 votes. No one else has even close to 1,000. I suspect the blogs with 1-4 votes must have been nominating themselves!

June 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Blogluxe's vote cleanup seems to have sent your only erstwhile competitor packing. Too soon for contragulations, but things are looking good.

June 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterA-not-Ansel

I voted! Aren't you proud? You've got 3 times the votes of the next closest competitor. Sweet!

June 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

Looks like Cake Wrecks is in the lead 3-to-1 today :)

June 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennyKitten76

Looks like you've got this one in the bag! Its a landslide win! Well done!

July 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVikki from OZ

Many devoted followers....of which im one now. ;) xx
