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? ;)

Now This One Really Slays Me

Things I just learned:

1: In the adoption process, the day the Consent to Adoption is given is known as the Execution Day.

2: That's not as chipper-sounding as you might think when iced on a cake:

...well, unless we're talking about a wood chipper. Then, maybe.


3. A photo of Dora being attacked by a monkey is so. not. helping.


Thanks to Megan G., who tells me something here was "lost in the translation."

I'm guessing the picture of the wood chipper.


Say What?

I know they keep pushing back the retirement age, but this is ridiculous:

Worst. Retirement package. Ever.


Clearly this "celabrate" you speak of refers to an activity with which I am unfamiliar.


Ever notice what a difference an "e" can make?



Or the lack of proper spacing?

Woohoo! Uric acid-induced arthritis! Yeah!


At first glance I thought this next cake said "gobbles," which you must admit would have been perfect on an edible baby cake.

Of course, if you say it fast enough this actually almost sounds right.

And, poof!
Just like that, I got you all to say the word "Gobbless" under your breath.






And finally, a reminder of the importance of commas:

"The first 102rd moms were just so-so, but number 103th? BINGO."


Thanks to Bethany V., Clare P., Jason T., Angela L., Erin L., & Rachel M., and whoever first put an "rd" superscript over a number two. (Seriously, just try to pronounce "2rd" without giggling. Go on.)
