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? ;)

Wreckage Of Unusual Size

In honor of the 24th anniversary of one of the greatest movies of all time, I'd like to tell you a story.

It's a story of the man in black:

Who may or may not look like the Noid from those old Domino's commercials.

 

And also a beautiful princess:

 

It's a tale of fencing and fighting,

of torture and despair,

"I've just sucked one year of your life away.
Now I need a glass of milk."

 

...of chases, escapes, and, of course, twoo wuv.

Also known as "Twoo huv"

 There's also a subplot of a son avenging his father's murder.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to... What's this? A cake?"

"Oooh, are those cherries?
I mean, uh...
Prepare to die.
And also pass me that fork over there."

 

Together, our heroes will defeat an evil prince, a wily Sicilian, a six-fingered man...

 

and, of course, Rodents Of Unusual Size.

"Hi."

 

"Btw, you may want to watch out for those popping noises. Trust me."

 

Bye bye, Jennifer B., Emily M., Jefferey W., Colin & Jen, Jan Y., Jennifer W., Nicole V., Rysha M., & Melanie H.! Have fun storming the castle!

 

Oh, and before I go: Anybody want a peanut?

Important Tour Update

Hi Guys!

We've had to do some last-minute re-scheduling for the coming book tour, which means three of our scheduled stops are moving to new cities. We've already contacted the attendees who RSVP'd for the affected cities, so hopefully this isn't too much of a shock for anyone, but just in case here are the shows that have been cancelled:

Montreal

Memphis

New Orleans

In their place, we've now added shows in these three cities:

Ottawa, Ontario (10/29)

Oklahoma City (11/9)

Austin, Texas (11/15 or 11/16)

These changes were not made lightly, and John and I have lost a lot of sleep the past few weeks determining the best way to see as many of you readers as we possibly can. Everyone who RSVP'd for the cancelled shows is getting free bookplates, and based on all the e-mails and feedback we've been getting we think this was the right call to make.

Hit the links for the new cities above to go to each show's Evite page, where you'll find all the details and can RSVP. As with all our stops, there will be a fun show, cupcake contest, free cake, prizes, and lots of laughs.

Thanks for your patience and understanding, everyone, and we'll see some of you soon!

 

Also, if you haven't RSVP'd for one of our other locations yet, head over to our Tour Page for details and all the links. Your RSVP helps our bakers know how much cake to bring. :)
