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? ;)

The Letter of the Flaw

And they say the state of American education is "bad" or whatever.

Pshaw. Just look at that pretty penmanship! Besides, the baker got the point across, and that's all that matters.

(And best stay out of Gaad's way, since s/he apparently lacks the will to stop tanking people. Nasty stuff, that. Trust me.)

 

Isn't it nice when a bakery reaches out to the local community?

Yep. That's quite a reach.

 

Because 1920's gangsters like pink, too.

(And don't ask me about those wonky nipple things. Seriously. Fuggetabout it.)

 

That's hot.

 

And speaking of hot...

Heck yeah they do!! I have to watch our Weber all the time. Especially when the fire pit's in town, and the lighter fluid starts flowing, and...

Ohhh, it a GRIL. Right. Never mind.

 

No, they didn't misspell Las Vegas; that's just Lady Luck's stripper name.

 

I'd like to offer my sincerest tanks to Vista M., Frankie M., Jessica H., Ty D., Anony M., & Anony 2., but sadly the army tends to frown on that sort of thing. So instead, I'll just give you all new stripper names (you know, to replace your old ones): Vasizzle, Floopsie, Jazzy, Tinkle, Aardvark, and Lop-a-long.

No need to tank me. Really.

A Healthy Appetite

So, Wreckies, how are those get-healthy New Year's resolutions going?

Mine are going GREAT. Here, let me run down my list with you:

 

1) Eat more greens

CHECK.

(Look, it has real lettuce on it. Of COURSE it's a salad.)

 

2) Also eat more fruit

CHECK.

(Granted, green grapes and chocolate icing aren't really my thing, but I'm committed this time, guys. I'm gonna see this through.)

 

And speaking of seeing things "through"...

 

3) Start an Activia video diary like Jamie Lee Curtis told me to

Er... Ok, I'm actually a little "behind" on this one, [BWAHAHAHAA POOP JOKE] but it looks like this guy has gotten a "head" start: 

I bet he's calling Jamie on his banana phone right now to tell her the good news!

 

4) Avoid pasta

CHECK.

(That's the new "I CAN believe it's not pasta!" from Duncan Hines. It's also gluten-free! Which means it's, like, TWICE as healthy.)

 

5) Eat more fiber

You'll never believe this, but after I wash the polyester fuzz down with some milk, I'm actually completely stuffed!

 

And my final get-healthy resolution:

6) Start running!

CHE...AAAUAUUGGGGHHH!!! RUN AWAAAY!!

 

Thanks to Tianna B., Rachel T., Sara R., Laura P., Patti M., & Greg B. for keeping me on track.
