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? ;)

5 Reasons to be Thankful This Thanksgiving

America, today we eat and drink and eat some more and drink some more and then cram in just one last bite and then have pie.


And if that's not enough reason to be thankful, then how about these?


5. It's not tornado season.*

Plus those corny giant death rays haven't been seen in at least a few weeks.

 (*Unless, of course, it is. I tried to ask Google, but it only confused me further.)

4. We don't live in the 1600's.

"The whole freezing-with-no-food-or-medicine thing I could take, but a receding hairline? Really? WHY MUST LIFE BE SO CRUEL?!"


3. Your turkey doesn't look like this:

"Uh, I'll just have the deflated balloon salad, please."


2. Someone, somewhere, is having a worse hair day than you.

And apparently a nosebleed.



And finally, the number one reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving is...

1. Frozen turkeys don't come with their heads.

"Well, what was I supposed to do, throw them out? When we needed a centerpiece?"


Happy Thanksgiving, America! And Happy Nothing Special Day, everyone else!


Thanks to Lyndsay F., Rowan O., Elaine M., Scott S., & Cassandra B., who I'm sure know how to make a LOVELY centerpiece out of turkey heads. And that's what worries me.


Return of the Poo-Wangs!

When you think about it, turkey cakes have a lot going against them. I mean, most of the time they either look like poo:


So...a little stiff.


However, sometimes, if you're reeeally lucky, they look like both:

And the turkey poo-wang is born!


Now sit back, relax, and cue the immature, mind-in-the-gutter giggling!



*giggle giggle*


Heads up; this drumstick's a real handful:

*giggle snort*


And finally, these "cake slices" are looking a bit testy, if you ask me:

But maybe they're just a little cold.


Thanks to Sandy P., Tom M., Heather K., Ashley G., Kristina G., Christi A., & Wendy C. for the cockeyed head-scratchers.
