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? ;)

Seven Surprising Words Bakers Can't Spell

(Warning: Slightly badish word)

If one didn't know better, one might think that "congratulations" and "birthday" were the only words that bakers regularly misspelled.  To this I say "Pish Tosh!" since I am currently in a post-Olympics English funk.  Also, I assume all English people regularly say "Pish Tosh."  Along with "ickle bobby wagon."

There are, however, a plethora of words that enjoy the same vigorous mangling.  These include:

 "Nathibnals"

 

"Yatch"

 

"Cummunion:"

 

"Fathdays"

 

"Pocker"

 

The wonderfully ironic "Ausome"

 

 And, of course, "asswhoie"

[Little known fact: "ASSWHOIEEEE!!" is what Goofy originally screamed while sailing off that cliff, before the censors got a hold of it.]


Thanks to Ashley C., Carol M., Connie F., Rachel N., Sunshine, Heather D., & Gare E. for giving me an excuse to post my favorite Goofy clip:

Would you like them

Would you like them

Would you like ham thinly sliced?

Would you like eggs nicely iced?

Seriously, lady.

 

I AM NOT EATING THIS.

 

Thanks to Tracy C. for inspiring me to lay off ham sandwiches for a while. (But never deviled eggs. Why can't I quit you, you eggy devils, you?!)
