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? ;)

A Haiku for You, Deer

Soft blue and brown swirls
somehow incomplete without
a beheaded deer.

"LOL! You must be one of the fortunate souls who live in a sunnier clime than I do."
You probably won't see this, as it's been several days, but NO, I don't live in a *sunnier* any such thing! I'm in Vermont...where the Winter lasts until about the first part of May. And in between Winter and Spring is our famous 5th season: mud season.
However, around these parts the evergreens (like your spruce, pine, balsam,etc.) have a habit of never going brown on us. Hmmm....maybe that's why they call them "evergreens."

That's not a beheaded deer - that's a bedeered head!
