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? ;)

What Do You Get for an Investment Banker?

Why, this cake, of course:

Sarah P.'s brother got this cake for her husband, an investment banker. It's like the Sci-Fi channel meets WWF: the earth has cracked open, and a demonic blood-sucking leech has attacked one of the wrestlers.

OH, wait - I just got the connection! Blood sucking leech/investment banker! How did I miss that?


And now a word from our new Director of Sensitivity, Pat:

"Jen in no way means to imply, allude to, or otherwise state that all investment bankers are blood sucking leeches or, conversely, that all blood sucking leeches are investment bankers. Any and all similarities between the aforementioned “Investment Bankers” and “Blood Sucking Leeches” may be purely coincidental and should be disregarded unless, of course, the above parties wish to be known as each other, in which case we, as members of the “World Community” should accept and embrace that choice."


Guest Blogging at Cupcakes Take the Cake

The lovely ladies over at Cupcakes Take the Cake are having guest bloggers ever day this month, and today my number was up, as it were. I thought it was only appropriate to educate the cupcake-loving masses over there on the many evils of the CCC. Sure, this lesson is something of a repeat for you guys, but here are 3 reasons you should check it out anyway:

1) It's mostly new material (and new Wrecks)
2) I invented some classifications for CCCs which may come in handy when you're wreckporting in the future. So now you can say, "I spied a 'Stingy Decorator CCC,'" and the rest of us will all nod knowingly at you. (Ok, well, we'll *actually* be nodding at our computer screens, but we'll be nodding at you in spirit. Close 'nuff.)
3) I'm not posting any other Wrecks today, so it's all you're gonna get.

Compelling reasons, no? :) Click here to read the article!
