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? ;)

Sooo Corny

Cake Wrecks readers, lend me your ears!


Thank you.

I will now field questions.

You there - yes, you - go ahead. Eh? Where did this cake pop up? I believe Wreckporter Carol Ann G. spotted it at her local supermarket. Yes, she is quite the Wreck stalker these days.

Next?

Sorry, your voice is a bit husky - what did you say? Oh, WHY did they make an ear of corn cake? Aw, shucks, how should I know? Maybe they just cobbled it together at the last minute.

Yes, Colonel? You had a question? No? Well, stop frittering away my time, then! Sheesh.

Hey, why are you all groaning? Don't try to butter me up, now: I know these puns are corny, but they're not THAT bad.

By my count that's 11. Happy punting (aka pun-hunting)!

Sunday Sweets: You "Auto" Watch

Car dealers here in the U.S. could learn a lot from manufacturer Skoda over in the U.K., because THIS is how you do a car commercial:

If you're as fascinated as I am, you should also check out the video on how they did it. There are more details there than the one minute ad could show, and it is AMAZING.

[insert obligatory joke about cakey car wrecks here]

Thanks to Thea L. for sharing the link!
