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? ;)

No More Rhymes Now, I Mean It!

This Sunday is National Haiku Poetry Day, so I thought I'd share a few of my illustrated favorites:


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


Soft evening breezes
Radioactive tampons
Lighting my undies


Just clowning around
What a way to be headed


She drives me crazy
Like no one else (ooh. ooh.)
Someone check the oil.

Waves of well wishes
A sea of celebration
Happy...Stan? You ok?


Thanks to Grace R., Maria A., Kristina K., Samantha T., & Fay K., who know that haikus are easy, but sometimes they don't make sense.

Submitting my theorem:
Radioactive tampons
are raver's light-sticks.

Lady MacBeth gets
clean-up job on the pit-crew.
Says "Out, damned oil-spot!"
