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? ;)

Piratey Skullduggery

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day, minions, but I really don't know much about bandwidth or encoding or seeding bitcoin frame rates, so I'm afraid I can't hook you up with free GoT downloads.

Sorry.

But I CAN show you how not to draw a skull and crossbones:

See, as a rule, you don't want knitting needles stuck in a bicycle seat.

But I'll admit the rules here are more like "guidelines."

 

What's that? You want the redhead?

Drink up, me hearty; he'll look better that way.

 

And speaking of really bad eggs:

X marks the spot where the evil egghead hovers.

 

Remember, if there's ONE thing Pirates like, it's bad puns, numbering things, and the letter...

RRRR

Pirates also like to growl. And snowflakes. And... running in circles? Look, pirates like a lot of things, OK? Pirates have layers. Like an onion. Or chip dip. Or a big floofy skirt. Or... dang, can't think of anything else.

 

Thanks to Bailey G., Alison W., Robin H., & Christi for not giving me a SINGLE opportunity to make a good "seamen" joke. What kind of minions are you, anyway?

A compass:

A ship to take us there:

(By You've Been Cupcaked)

 

And some big pirate chests to hold all our booty:

(By Cakelava)

 

A hat and cutlass would probably be a good idea:

...and the parrot is mandatory.

(By The Cake Whisperer)

 

Plus, what's a pirate ship without a few rats?

(By Artem Doce Cakedesign)

 

Of course, the treasure is sure to be guarded by something scary:

(By Roses and Bows Cakery)

That snail means business.

 

Which is why we're bringing our most trusted minion.

(By Vanessa Rodrigez Cake Art)

He's not afraid of snails.

 

Right, that's it! Now I know we're ready for Talk like a Pirate Day tomorrow.

Arrrrrrrrrrr you?
