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? ;)

Hey, Teachers! "THANX."

It's Teacher Appreciation Day!

So if you're reading this right now, you should thank a teacher.  


And if you're not reading this right now, then your eyebrows are asymmetrical and you smell like cheese. HA. BURN.

See why you need to learn to read, kids? That's right: so you know when random strangers on the Internet are insulting you. Which is always. But reading will give you the specifics.

Ok, now that I'm done with my inspirational pep talk, let's get down to this "thanking" business.


[looking over glasses]

[adopting scholarly tone]

[consulting note cards]


As a society, we owe our teachers, like, a LOT. (Not an alot, mind you, but a LOT.) 

 After all, without teachers, who would instruct us in our letters and numbers?

Or in proper grammar?


Or reading comprehension?

 And then write something witty.


We also can't forget proper penmanship:

And, of course, the arts:


 ACK! Um...sorry, wrong slide. How did that get in there? Heheh. Whoopsie! 

We must never speak of this again.


Moving on... (no pun intended)( 'cuz I'm just that good)...Where was I? 

Oh, right.

The arts:

Curse you, budget cuts. CURSE YOU.


So today, I want you all to:


By offering a hearty:



 Um...what the cake said.


Thanks to Robert L., Brooke M.,  Gerta B., Chana L., Nanak B., Kelly H., Brooke B., Mindy W., Amy S., and teachers everywhere for the education.

I will never hear the words "a lot" without thinking of Allie. Good job putting her link in there!

The backwards 6 cake was my daughter's. It was definitely supposed to be a 6, and it took the woman in the bakery a few minutes to realize she was wrong. Then, she said, "I have done this so many times! I worked in printing, so I had to get used to seeing the letters backwards! I just did this the other day, too!" Umm....maybe you need a new line of work? Lol

I think the "6" cake is beautiful, though. The icing is really pretty, and it reminds me of my favorite pattern: paisley. For me, it wouldn't be a wreck. I'd love it.
