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? ;)

It's a Tough Job, But Someone's Gotta Blow It

WARNING: In-your-end-o jokes ahead. Hide the kids!

*****

John: "For some reason we got a few complaints over that Labor Day cake, so let's steer clear of anything off-color today, ok?"

Jen: "Noooo problem. I have the perfect ON color cake we can use."

John: "Yeah?"

Jen: "Yep. I call it, 'TASTE THE RAINBOW.'"

John: "NO. Definitely no."

 

Jen: "What, you don't like it?
"Then how about 'Rubber Baby Buggy Balls'?"

"See, you can already tell it's a boy!"

John: "Why does the stroller have... ?! Never mind. No."

 

Jen: "Tiger Beat?"

John: "You're killing me here.

"Can't you just post some wrecky flowers or something? Please?"

Jen: "Flowers? ON IT."

[five minutes later]

"Got one! This baker says her co-worker made a border of 'exotic flowers.' You like?

"I think I'll call it, 'Ring Around the Posy Peens.'"

John: [silent glare]

"The Pollenators?"

[...]

"Petal Pushers?"

[...]

"Sticky Stamens?"

[...]

"Calla Willies?"

[...]

"One-Eyed Snapdragons?"

[...]

"Penis Flytraps?"

John: "You're answering tomorrow's e-mail."

 

Thanks to Jody M., Amber G., Ashley, & Anony M. for helping us see last Monday's cake through wang-colored glasses.

Sunday Sweets for Book Lovers

Tomorrow is International Literacy 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:

(Baker unknown. Anybody know?)

 

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.
