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? ;)

Where Dreams Come Through

Welcome to BisneyLand, the amusement park that's in no way affiliated with Disneyland, but is just as good - and cheaper, too!

Once you enter the gates of our mystical castle-land of joy, you'll be greeted by our lovely royal ladies:

Cinderallie and her clear resin shoes are always the hit of the ball.

Princess Yasmine and her flying doormat will show you a "whole 'nother world."

And TinklesWell the Winged Wonder is sure to be your day's #1 delight!

We also have fabulous entertainment:

Princess Areola and her pals Haddock, Skittle, and Captain Crabby Pants may prefer life "under the ocean," but they still enjoy singing their big musical numbers, "Check Out My Cool Stuff," and "I Can't Talk, So Let's Make Out!"

Kids young and old will love dancing with Snow Light and her seven short friends with beards:

They'll soon have you "Hee-Hawing" off to your own place of employment!

And don't forget Pretty, our good-looking girl:

And of course her friend Not-So-Handsome!

Together they invite you to "be our visitor!"

Anony M., Allison M., Clau, David I., Amanda S., Mona S., & Kristyn, how crazy would it be if a place like this actually existed? Oh, wait...


Sunday Sweets: The Anti-Nerd

Recently Jen and I have been informed that we put up too many nerdy Sweets. Being the big ol' nerds that we are, we hadn't really noticed. I suppose it's kinda like telling your local undertaker he wears too much black.

So, in order to cater to the needs of the many NON-nerds who read this blog, we've decided to push up our taped glasses, strap in to our Authentic Star Trek TOS Captain's Chair Replicas, and dig deep into our archives for the least... nerdy... cakes... ofalltime. [<-- my Kirk impression]


A teapot:

By Fantasticakes

Because nerds only drink Red Bull.*

A sandwich:

By The Cake Gallery

Because sandwiches are for jocks.*


By The Cake Mamas

Because nerds don't need makeup while playing StarCraft II in the dark.*

A birdhouse:

By Whimsy Cakes

Because seeing birds - or their houses - would mean leaving the comfort of our computer caves.*

Lady bugs:

By Alana Hodgson

Okay. This might be slightly nerdy.


By Sweet Stuff Cake Art

See "birds."

Toast and other homemade foods:

By The Icing on the Cake

Because nerds don't make their food. Other people do that.*


By Love To Cake

No reason. I just thought we needed a turtle in this post.

A banana:

By Kahlan4

Because they require far too much effort for us nerds to eat.
Give me an automatic banana peeler and we'll talk.

And finally, what might be the most mind-blowing cake I have ever seen in my entire life:

By Will Cotton

It's like someone built a Large Hadron Collider smack in the middle of a bakery, and it spawned a black hole which sucked all the cake toward the center of the room and someone snapped a picture just before the entire earth was sucked in and all of humanity as we know it met its dooooom!

[pushing up glasses]

But it's totally NOT nerdy.

So, there you have it. Next weekend Jen and I will be at Dragon*Con (watch Twitter to find us & win prizes!), so it's probably safe to assume that there may be a nerd cake or three. Prepare thyself!

*These statements have not been evaluated by the entire nerd community and may only apply to the author of this post, john (the hubby of Jen), who likes to refer to himself in the third person. Which is quite nerdy, if you think about it.
