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? ;)

Wreck, Reuse, Recycle

Edible photos are becoming increasingly popular with bakeries these days, but we should keep in mind that this is not a cheap technology. In fact, it's quite expensive, what with the special printers, edible ink, and, of course, the moon dust and mithril-coated unicorn hair they use for paper.


Wait. You're saying they *don't* use moon dust and mythril-coated unicorn hair for paper?

Well, then, how do you explain...THIS?

They reused the printer's test sheet.


You know, Denis C., if the sheets cost this much, maybe they should consider just going back to Spiderman Head.


Just kidding.

But seriously, stop with the edible printing already.


Something About Moose

My fellow Americans! Today is a great day. A momentous day. A day... celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving.

[cranking up Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On"]

Yes, friends, today...we...CELEBRATE....allthingsCanadian. Which....INCLUDES....WilliamShatner. (aka Captain Kirk)

And as we all know, Captain Kirk "boldy goes:"

Sometimes under the name "Shayne."

But let's get back to Canada, shall we? CANADA! The country with a "can-do" attitude!

Or is that a "can-da" attitude? The accent always throws me.

Besides, today is Canadian Thanksgiving - or, as the native Canadians know it, "Thanksgiving."

I'm told it's pretty much like American Thanksgiving, only with a Canadian flair:

There's that accent again.

Canadians also don't have any Pilgrims in their Thanksgiving story. So instead, here's an evil mutant ladybug:

"Rawr! Give thanks, eh! Rawr!"

Lucky Canada. Why don't *we* get evil mutant ladybugs? Huh? It's just not fair.

But riddle me this, Canada: have you ever seen a turkey fly?


Well, now you have! Booya!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada, and happy Columbus Day, other countries that celebrate Columbus day. Oh, and bzzz bzzzz zzz bzz, turkey flies.

Today we give thanks for Wreckporters Shayne G., Brian O., Joe I., Michelle H., Jamie G., and Turkey McFly.

Update: Anneke submitted this awesome video in the comments. And you have to admit: nothing says "Canada" like an adorably polite talking beaver. Am I right?
