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? ;)

Today I am NOT Irish

Nope, today I'm opting out of my admittedly diluted Irish heritage. I refuse to acknowledge any connection, in however small a part, to this:


Where to start? The hand-shaped pasties? The mannish pectorals? Or perhaps the coin-filled diaper?

I'm guessing this is either supposed to be a pregnant woman, a pot-bellied man, or a fat Irish cherub who dances for spare change. I've yet to decide which of those options would make the pasties least disturbing, though. [tilting head thoughtfully] Hmm. Maybe the cherub.

Erin W., I've heard of a "coin slot" before, but isn't it supposed to be in the back?

Grammar Nazis Beware

Before I get inundated with e-mails of this, I figured I'd better go ahead and post it. So here's one for you, Lolspeakers:

Don't take my posting this as approval, however. While I appreciate the well-timed usage of the word "bebeh", reading entire sentences of this "language" gives me an almighty headache. So, if any of you DARE post some Lolspeak nonsense in MY comment section, there will be heck to pay! (Mostly in the form of me mocking you.) I mean it now - don't say I didn't warn you!

For those of you who think spelling friends "fwends" is cute, though, go here. Get it all out of your system, and then you can come back.

Hey Tanya, there's a gerbil on that cake!! Huh. I just noticed.
