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? ;)

Tonight's The Night!

I gotta feeling
That tonight's gonna be a good night

That tonight's gonna be a GOOD night


That tonight's gonna be a good good niii-ii-iight.


That's right, my friends, and now here's everyone's favorite Black-Eyed Pea to continue serenading us!

Tonight's the night!

Let's wreck it up!
I got my BuBBlY:

Let's throw it up!

Go out and SMASH it

Like, good and trod!

Put on this tree hat:

I'll call you Todd!

Fill up my cup!


Look at her dancing:

Woo! Take it off!


Er, I think I'm going to stop you there, Mr. Pea, thank you.

And for the rest of you, let me just say:

With extra sprinkles on top.

Stay safe tonight, everyone, and have a wonderful New Year's Eve!


Thanks to Jenn K., Kristen M., Cielo C., Chioke H., Antonia S., Lea E., Anony M., Kati B., Caylin C., & Michelle S. for playing us out of 2012 in style.



Oh, and this one's for all the early-bird grandparents out there:

"Well, it's 9:05. HAPPY NEW YEAR!"


Sunday Sweets: Snow Day

Remember when you were a kid, and you'd look out the window on the way to bed, and it would be snowing?

By Diane's Cakes and More

Great big flakes.


And you hoped it would snow A LOT, but you didn't want to jinx it, and then when you woke up there was snow everywhere?

By Wedding Cakes for You

That deep, fluffy snow that coated everything and made you want to run outside and make forts and snow angels?


But first, you crawled back into your warm bed for a while,

because how often did you get to sleep late on a school day, after all?


And when you finally got out of bed, you threw on your boots,

and ran outside to build a snow family?

And you realized you were cold and wet, so you went inside, flung off your wet winter clothes,

and made a cup of cocoa... drink in front of the fireplace?

By Scrumptious Cakes

And you grabbed that last candy cane you were hoarding in your stocking to use as a stirrer?


Then you spent a blissful hour lying on the warm rug, reading your Calvin and Hobbes books?

And when you were done you played your favorite video game for a while, like, I don't know...

...Super Mario Bros?


And by then you were warm enough that you had to go outside again, to go ice skating with your friends?

By Robyn Loves Cake

And it was so much fun everything felt magical?


Well, that's a Snow Day.
