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? ;)

Sunday Sweets For Book Lovers

It's Sunday! Aka, snuggle-up-somewhere-cozy-with-a-good-book day.

This calls for some books we can really sink our teeth into:

(By The Night Kitchen Bakery)

That'll do.
:)

 

And a tip of the Sorting Hat to J.K. Rowling, who inspired a whole generation to grow up reading:

(By Janice Paredes-Alvarez)

 

(By Gina Rouchy)

 

Or raise your hand if you grew up on this fantasy series:

(By Bake My Cake)

So, so pretty. That little ivy trail is the perfect touch.

 

Or how about these classics?

(By Sweet Fix)

I've actually featured this cake before, but those covers are worth a second look. Seriously some of the best I've ever seen.

 

And for more classics, how about a little Edgar Allan Poe?

(By Miss Amy)

Creepy cool! Love the hand-painted raven.

 

Eventually we all graduate to slightly less riveting reads, of course:

(By Highland Bakery)

 

But all it takes is the right book to make us feel like kids again:

(By Sweet On Cake)

 

Or maybe a teenager, fighting for her life:

(By Isabelle Bambridge)

 

Maybe some of us even get inspired to start writing our OWN adventures:

(By The Cake Factory)

 

Because for book worms like us, the best "happily ever after" is one filled with stories:

(By Roxy Cakes)

Although a double chocolate raspberry filling might be a close second. ;)

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! Here's to curling up for the rest of the day with a good book.

The Far Side Of The Bakery

During the traditional "Ongo Longo" dance, the natives express thanks for the year's crops, the tribe's health, and for the glandular defect running rampant in the island's pigs.

 

The scientists found that results were mixed. Some mice seemed to enjoy the whistling spleen, while others were petrified beyond all bowel control.

 

As the minutes ticked by, Elmo realized with dawning horror that this was one staring contest he might not win.

 

Batman would later have cause to regret his rather insensitive "manual control" quip.

 

Wall-E considered. On the one hand, he adored Eve and wanted to make her happy. But on the other, he was surrounded by mounds of crap.

 

Thanks to Susan S., Beth M., Kimmi D., Bianca S., & Karen P. for the wrecks, and to Gary Larson for allowing me to be raised on The Far Side.
