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? ;)

Chasing Shadows, Deja Vu The Third Again

[alarm clock clicking to 6:00 AM]

[Sonny & Cher caterwauling to I Got You, Babe]

 

Ok, Campers, rise and shine! 'Cuz it's Groundhog Day!

Or, as Brenda here knows it:

"Groad Hogs Day"

 

Today is the day that we celebrate the.. day...by having this cheeky little fella:

aka "the guy with the crappy back end":

 

"Did I do that?"


...drive around town with Bill Murray looking for a weather forecaster who has no shadow. Which I think makes the weather forecaster a vampire.

 Ah, American holidays.

 

Today is also the day when we find out if winter will end soon or not.

 Hm...

Yeah. Good luck with that, every-state-but-Florida.

 

So, unless shadowless weather forecasters are run over by rodent and celebrity driven automobiles, I'd say most of you are due to see a lot more of this:

"Squashed octopodes?"

Er, no. I mean this:

"Blue crabs?"

No, no, no!

THIS:

[crickets chirping]

Oh, never mind.

Happy Grounn Dhog Day, y'all.

 

Thanks to Brenda M., M.Z., Melissa B., Saundra, Karen C., Jamie, & Kevin H., who would like to remind you to never drive angry. Especially with a quadruped

See you tomorrow, campers!

These Bakers Either Have No Idea What Football Is, Or They're The Best Trolls Ever

And I can't be the only one hoping they're trolling, right?

 

How To Make Football Cakes When You Have No Idea What Football Is:

Step 1) Keep it simple:

 

Step 2) ... but happy!

 

Step 3) Maybe try making a football?

[...]

[...]

Or better yet, skip ahead to step 4.

 

Step 4) Use lots of generic statements that could apply to any sport, like, "What a game!"

 

And, "Big Score!"

 

Or the always popular, "Best Wishes!"

 

Step 5) LOOK, USE THE FLOTSAM

Ah, the Flotsam is strong with this one.

Though I find your lack of cake... disturbing.

 

Thanks to Jennifer B., Morgan S., Emily R., Mary, Julia T., Ginny B., & Benjamin B. for the football pile.
