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? ;)

John's Birthday Suit

It's my birthdy! And by "my" I mean it's john (the hubby of Jen)'s birthay. Granted, I don't usually speak of myself in the third person (unless I'm in the midst of seduction [which, admittedly, rarely works (but John never knows unless he tries!)]) was I?

Oh, yeah: It's my birhday!

I originally wanted to write about those Canadian Nazi carrots you can buy at Epcot, but then I figured I'd just show you a bunch of misspelled cakes, so my own misspellings look international. Because I'm crazy like that. And giving. Yep, John's a giver.

[eyebrow waggle]

Look! A misspelling!

I believe it's spelled "Shirk." And since I did avoid seeing the last movie, this kind of works.

Isn't this called an oxymaroon?

Although if you roll the "r" while reading it out loud, you'll sound just like Sherk! Go on. Try it.

See what I mean? Now, all together: "Grrrreet job, don-kay!"

This one also seems a little contradictionary:

"Stop that right this second! Don't make me pull this event over!"

And since you long-time Wreckies know how fond I am of Earth Day cakes...

Listen! Do you smell Epcot?

And finally, this is not a cake, but I've gotta say...

...I pay way more for Jen's pasties.

Hm? What's this? Jen's telling me "pasties" are also British meat pies.

John thinks she's trying to tell him something. [eyebrow waggle]

John also would like to know why Jen rolls her eyes so much.

And now, because it's my brithday, I want to give you something special. Yes, that's right: John wants to give you something.


[Barry White music]

Awwww yeahhh. Mmmmmmm, baaaby. John knows what you want:

Cake Wrecks stuff!

So, leave me a comment, and I'll pick the sexiest two to win personalized copies of Cake Wrecks. (I'll even let Jen sign 'em.) The next sexiest two will win Cake Wrecks wall calendars.

In fact, because I'm such a giver, we're going to give stuff away every day this week, with even *more* give-aways on Facebook. Who loves me? Who is it? Oh yeah, it's you. Mmmhmmm. Happy briday to ME.

Check tomorrow's post for the winner's names, and also for your next chance to win stuff. Also watch the CW Facebook page this week for more chances to win exclusive CW pin packs and assorted goodies.

Well John let me just say that i do remember wen your birthday is. It is sooo close to my daughter's, and we talked about this in KC at the book signing.

Sorry i am late with this, but kiddos birthday kept me busy.

Sexy comments? you want sexy comments? hehe i still have that pic of your butt it's pretty sexy, and i would like to remind you the only reason i have it is because you walked in front of my camera.

Now hmm .. one more thing ..

you must have been awfully good lately to earn a capital letter on your name for your birthday *WINK*

For Ros: According to Urban Dictionary a Pastie is "A tassle for your nipple so you can get 'naked' but not be totally out there, but it doesn't cover very much at all." Hope this helps clear things up for you. :) Hippy Turdday, John!

It is wrong how much cease the moment makes me laugh. Granted I did read this post at 5 AM.

November 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

oh yeah, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

November 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

...I automatically think of the foodstuff for pasties. They're really very common over here. It's like hearing someone make a doughnut innuendo - it could maybe mean something else, but the food is my first thought.

That said, this blog is awesome, and happy birthday. ^_^
