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? ;)

Bakery Grammar 101

Grammar Rules for Bakers

 

Avoid commas, That are not, necessary.

 

Consult a dictionery to avoid mispelings.

 

""Avoid" "overuse" "of" "quotation" "marks.""

 

Prepositions are something you never end a sentence with.

 

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

 

Only use apostrophe's when its the proper time.

 

Don't overuse exclamation points!!!!!!!!!

 

Always hyphenate between syllables, and avoid un-necessary hyp- henation.

 

No sentence fragments

See? Piece of cake!

 

Next week: Dangling participles!

 

There, they're, their. Put down the red correcting pens long enough to thank Lynne S., Malory M., Donna M., Marlese L., Allison C., Jennifer B., Samuel, Maria, Meris, and Gamal A., whose grammar is always perfect.

Am I the only one who saw the granny panties celebrating a pericous baby god? I don't think any of the major gods with which I am familiar would appreciate a granny panty cake celebrating the new one.

At least happy vagina was spelled correctly. Unless they were trying to spell Virginia then they failed miserably lol. I would love to know who the heck wishes someone a happy vagina unless it is your gynecologist and even then I would be worried they gave someone a cake lol.

It might seem crazy what I'm 'bout to say
Pericous baby’s here, you can take a break
I'm concentrated inside a “quote” space
With grammar, like I don't care, baby, by the way
Vagina happy
Clap along if you like best wises and luk that’s good
Vagina happy
Clap along if you feel like Daddy’s matter to
Vagina happy
Clap along if you know what dinning has always meant!!!
Vagina happy
Clap along if you feel like enjoying ur retirem-

Re: carrot cupcakes
"Mrs. Ogg, your cupcakes are ready. Are you SURE you wanted . . . THAT on top?"*

And I was so relieved, after seeing "Congragalatons" and "Congrultions" and whatever else, that "Congratulations" was spelled right--but they missed "Luck" and "Wishes"? How is that possible?


*This is a Discworld joke, for those unfamiliar with the series. Nanny Ogg has, shall we say, a rather risqué sense of humor. She'd look at most of the "suggestive" cakes here and say, "I don't see what's wrong with that!"

@Seabird: thanks, but just remember...i before e except when sounding like a as in neighbor or whey...or something like that....

Even if spelling, grammar, and technical execution had been flawless, why does anyone ever think a DIAPER cake is a good idea? It's not exactly what I want to be thinking about during dessert....

Let's just forget for a moment how truly horrifying and awful these cakes are so we may ask ourselves a very important question: Who else read the caption for Concentrated Debbie and heard it in William Shatner's voice?
