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? ;)

Breaking News: Heeeere's Bobby!

Ok, all you guys who kept insisting the Popped-Eyes Sailor Blobs were actually Bob from Monsters-VS-Aliens, listen up.

Bob is blue.

Bob has one eye.

Bob...

Well, he looks like this:

"Yo homies! I'm bringing blobby back!"

This is the "official" Bob cake, made by Sugar Butter Flour and served at DreamWorks yesterday to celebrate the movie's release. Fortunately Jessica G.'s hubby works there, which is why we get to share in the gelatinous joy.

Speaking of gelatinous, though, wouldn't it have been awesome if they'd made him completely out of Jello? Sure, I'd rather eat cake, too, but Bompass & Parr (creators of the infamous burger-on-a-donut) have some nifty "Jelly" creations, some of which even glow in the dark:

Cool, huh? Plus, slap an eyeball on that sucker and you've got yourself a Bob!

Heck, now I'm inspired to go make some blue jello mounds with eyeballs. Then I'll bring them to the IMAX theater, and chuck 'em at the candy-wrapper-crinkling, seat-kicking, cell-phone-answering, talking-the-ENTIRE-TIME pests who sit behind me. "Who's 3D now, jerk-faces? Huh? HUH? SHWA-POW! Bob in the face!"

Hm, maybe John's right. Maybe I'm not ready for the movie theater again yet.

Oh, and before anyone gives me grief, this is just Cake News, mmkay? Not Wrecks; Cake News.

UPDATE: Just learned from SuperPunch that Bob also visited the DreamWork's campus "in the flesh," as it were. Check out pics here.

Celebrating A Different Kind Of V Day

NOTE: this post contains material somewhat "adult" in nature.

I recently saw on Neatorama that "Tough Times are Good for Vasectomies". Apparently the current economic rough patch has more and more folks turning to the "cheapest form of permanent birth control".

So in addition to an increase in sales of frozen peas, I guess this means we'll also be seeing less of these:

And more of these:

I think my favorite part on this one is the random sombrero: like the doctor would come in, consult his clipboard, and say, "Ok, Mr. Smith, I am going to need you to remove all your clothes... but feel free to keep that bitchin' sombrero on."

And on a personal note, my hubby John would like to remind all of you fellas out there that the ol' snip-snip is only the cheapest form of birth control if you do it without general anesthesia, which, according to him, "would totally have been worth the extra two grand".

[eye roll] Men. A little scrotum-puncturing and tube-cauterizing and they turn into such babies.

Liz P., Michael W., & Jessica G., Ole!

Note: The "We have a runner" cake is by the fabulous Cakeworks - be sure to check their site for more hilarious designs.
