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? ;)

Ever Feel Like ----Thing's Missing?

Ah yes, it's Mike & Louisa of the Perpetual Merriment.
(I bet they're morning people, too. Blech.)

Forget missing words - that "t" is a work of arT!

Also, do you pronounce "Rubye" kind of like ribeye? 'Cuz that's how it sounds in my head. (When the pink Snickers bar says it, anyway. The other voices haven't reached a consensus yet.)

"Welcome N J Bell to Virizan and"


And what? What?!? TELL ME!! I MUST KNOW!!!

Arg, this suspense is killing me! Why don't you just send Sheppard out on another suicide mission and make me wait six months to see if he lives or not? Huh? How 'bout that, funny boy?*

Oh, and speaking of suicide missions:

Who wants a slice of Adam's ca-aake? [sing-song]

Anyone? Anyone?

Sure, it's nice to know that "Kaun" and Jerry are happy, but I imagine this kind of word omission could lead to some rather, shall we say, misleading, inscriptions:

[shifty eyes] Er. Yes, kinda like that.

(It's short for RICHARD, people - and I'll leave any remarks about the (in)appropriateness of the decorations to you guys.)

*Yes, I do realize that cliff-hanger was 5 years ago - I just never fully recovered, is all.

Tracy H., Shelley A., Lori & Mary S., Chris Z., Bethany G., & Jennifer H, Good!

Help For Haiti

As the news continues to pour in about the shocking loss of life (estimated in the tens of thousands now) and wide-spread destruction following the quake in Haiti this week, I hope you Wreckies will consider donating to one of the many relief organizations providing aid there.

Unfortunately there are a lot of scammers popping up, though, so do be careful where you give. Charity Navigator has a great list of trustworthy organizations here, which includes our previously featured Doctors Without Borders.

For an easy way to donate to the Red Cross, you can text “Haiti” to 90999 and $10 will be added to your next phone bill. (Over $1 million raised this way as of this writing.)

I know a lot of you can't afford to give much. That's Ok! As we saw from the Charity Countdown, it only takes each of us giving a little to accomplish a lot together. So let's give what we can, spread the word, and say a prayer for this poor country and the heroes working there on the ground.

(Our Doctors Without Borders First Giving page is still up, and there's no minimum donation required. Only have a buck to give? Then please, give it here.)
