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? ;)

The World's Most Cheerful Hanging

Ah, what a difference a horizon line can make - and how unfortunate that this one is about 3 inches below the dangling feet.

Thanks to Mar C., Wreckin' on over in Barcelona, Spain!


Suite Interview

I recently did an interview with Alicia King for Suite 101, the online magazine and writers' network. Unlike my previous interviews, in this one we talk about the writing process behind Wrecks and also about the upcoming Cake Wrecks book. You'll also learn which comic-strip character most resembles my father: a revelation which will probably be news to him, too. (Surprise, Dad!)

Check out the interview here.
