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? ;)

Yesterday Was Thursday

It's Friday, Friday, Friday!!!

Are we we we so excited?

YES.

Because it's not just ANY Friday...

[dum dum DUMMM]


...it's Friday the 13th, lollipops.

Er...I mean, suckers. Yeah.


So beware...

AAIIIEEEEE!!!

...because today, your baked goods just might try to KILL YOU:

More than usual, I mean.

"I don't remember any legs, but it definitely had arms, because it reached out for me!"


"And then...then it started free-handing flowers with the star tip!!"

AAAAIIIEEEE!!!

Thanks to Joy F., Diess, Ashley W., Rebecca R., & Kimberly C., who think this calls for another visit to...[dum dum DUMMM] Hell's Bakery:



"Enjoy!"

Oh, and remember: tomorrow is Saturday.

And Sunday comes afterward.

HB to Me!

Let's see...

In 2009, I announced the publication of my first-ever book, Cake Wrecks, which went on to become a New York Times' best-seller. (woot woot!)

In 2010, I launched my other blog, Epbot, which went on to become "that steampunk blog by the Cake Wrecks girl - you know, what's-her-name." (woot woot!)

Now here we are again, my birthday, 2011. How can I top these past two years? What big news will I break? What ground-breaking, trail-blazing new venture will I embark upon?

***

No, really. Have any ideas?

Nothing? Really? Huh.

[tapping teeth]


Well, I guess I could always try to find a good birthday wre...

Whoah.

Well, that didn't take long.

Let's see what else I've got in the ol' files here...


I'm not sure what this says about me, but all I see is "Happy bowel disease."

Well, praise B!

That's...not much better. (Does that really say "happiy?")

Theeere we go. Perfect.

Phew! What a relief!

...

Who's Walter?

And my personal favorite:

When obscene phone calls become cakes.

Well, as fun as that was, I still feel like I should be doing something a little more - I dunno - exceptional for my birthday post. Hmm.

Oh!

I know!

There IS this little thing John and I happened to throw together last night...

And now, on the off chance you're experiencing some unconscious need to make me happy by pre-ordering yourself some wrecky goodness...[please please please???]...the goodness is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and everywhere else books are sold. Just think: all of your holiday shopping could be done in the next five minutes. Eh?

As a further icing carrot, here are a few fun facts:

- 232 pages of wreckage (yes, it's even longer than the first book. I, uh, got a little carried away.)
- gorgeous hardcover for prime gift-giving goodness
- approximately 75% all new content, with nearly 100% new commentary.
- Have I mentioned it's my birthday?
- and that it's only $14.99 (or less)?
- and said "please?"

Thanks to Michelle K., Jennifer A., Alicia J., John Y. (aka johnthehubbyofJen - because, yes, we look for Wrecks, too!), Amber T., & Lorraine D. for my birthday cakes.
