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? ;)

What a Mom Wants

Sunday is Mother's Day.

MY day.

The one day a year when that 27 hours of labor is officially recognized, and my son gets to make up for the fact that his first word was "car."

And his second was "cat."

"Mom" was third.

But I'm OK.


I don't want much, really. Maybe just some chocolate. Like a rich, dark chocolate cake. Mmmm. And maybe with a sweet sentiment written on it.


Nice gash.

But how 'bout something that doesn't remind me of my C-section?


I know, roses! Beautiful, fragrant, long stem...

...dead roses.


Did I mention it was TWENTY SEVEN hours of labor?


Ok, how about some jewelry? I saw some cute little necklaces over at Targe... second thought, I've changed my mind.

I want a vacation.


Maternal thanks to Rosie, Kathryn H., and Anony M. for helping me stay on my diet this Mother's Day.

My kids were late talkers. My first didn't say "Mama" until he was 2 1/2, after he was weaned. My sister complained that he didn't have a name for her. I didn't have a name. My dad, who he saw maybe six time a year, had a name. Thanks, baby. But yeah, first child's first word: Kitty. Second child's first word: Kitty-cat. We don't have a cat. (My sister does.)
Now you may throw things at me; my labors were 4.5 hours and 3 hours, respectively. I wish everyone good birthing vibes! Happy mothers' day!
