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? ;)

Purse Your Lips; It's National Handbag Day!

"Encounter In A NYC Alley"
A play in one act.


"Hey pretty lady, how 'bout a genuine Prawda hand bag?

"100% genuine! Just six hundred dollars!"


"Wait, don't walk away! Hey, mister, don't you want your pretty wife to look pretty? Don't you love your wife? Doesn't your wife deserve Guchi?"

"Five hundred is my final offer, but my kids won't eat tonight!"


[chasing after couple]

"I see you have a discerning eye. Only the best for such distinguished customers!"

"Donny and Bork! $300 but my mom won't get her hip replacement!"


[grabbing wife by the ankles]

"Think of my sick cats! This is a genuine Coatch bag! Seven thousand dollars retail!"

"For you? $200. I'm literally giving it to you for that! I'm losing money!"


[wife now dragging seller across the sidewalk]

"Okay! I was saving this one for my cousin who has rabies but I'm willing to give it to you for just $100. It's a genuine Louise Vitton! You can tell by the zipper!"


"FINE! If you'll leave us alone, I'll give you ten bucks for the bag."

"You have literally murdered my children. This is an INSULT. I can't even LOOK at you anymore.

"...Gimme twelve and I'll throw in a free pair of Lowbootins."

Sunday Sweets Takes A Liking For Vikings

It's Leif Erickson Day, time to celebrate one of the world's best-known Vikings!

(By Sweet Delisse)

Of course, *I* don't know much about Leif Erickson, so I'm going to get a little help from our old friend, the Internet.


Let's see...
There once was a Viking named Eric the Red. He probably looked something like this:

Eric had a son named Leif, who turned out to be a good sailor.

It helps when you start them young.


When Leif's father was banished from Iceland, they hopped a boat...

...and headed to Greenland.


It was while he was in Greenland that Leif and his family learned how to train dragons.

Um... wait... is that right?

[furious clicking]
OK, forget that last bit. And remember, don't believe everything you read on the Internet, kids.
(Great cake, though, right?)


Anyway... Leif sailed on many voyages.

Eventually, he got restless and sailed off to find a far-off land he'd heard about, 600 arduous miles away.

(You have to see the back, too. The bubbles are hand-blown sugar!)

Leif is believed to have found the New World 500 years before Columbus.


Leif Erickson Day sailed onto the national calendar in 1964.

Thereby raising public awareness of Viking culture enough to inspire a TV show in 2013:

...not to mention its fair share of adorable birthday party themes:

So, Happy Leif Erickson Day, everyone!

May the horns on your hat never fall out.
