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? ;)

Chasing Shadows, Part Deja Vu

Ok, Campers, rise and shine! 'Cuz it's Groundhog Day!

Or, as Brenda here knows it:

"Groad Hogs Day"


Today is the day that we celebrate the.. having this cheeky little fella:

aka "the guy with the crappy back end":


"Did I do that?" around town with Bill Murray looking for a weather forecaster who has no shadow. Which I think makes the weather forecaster a vampire.

 Ah, American holidays*.


Today is also the day when we find out if winter will end soon or not.

Yeah. Good luck with that, every-state-but-Florida.


So, unless shadowless weather forecasters are run over by rodent and celebrity driven automobiles, I'd say most of you are due to see a lot more of this:

"Squashed octopodes?"

Er, no. I mean this:

"Blue crabs?"

No, no, no!


[crickets chirping]

Oh, never mind.

Happy Grounn Dhog Day, y'all.


Thanks to Brenda M., M.Z., Melissa B., Saundra, Karen C., Jamie, & Kevin H., who would like to remind you to never drive angry. Especially with a quadruped

See you tomorrow, campers!

*Actually, I hear Canadians celebrate Groundhog Day, too. Except their vampire weather forecasters use beavers** to raise the stakes. [insert beaver joke here] [insert 'BWAHAHAHA!' here] [insert apology for beaver joke here]

**May or may not be entirely untrue.


Rah Rah Wreckage

You guys, I figured it out: these cupcakes hold a secret code.

See if you can crack it before the migraine sets in:

 HINT: It's starts with the word "gone."


And here's a lesson on the importance of proper punctuation placement:

"GO!! Giants. Just... just go."


[adjusting belt and swaggering over drunkenly] "SO, football field cake. Are you gonna FIGHT? Or are you just too YELLA?"

Well, alrighty then.


Uh-oh. Look out, other foods! The wreckage is coming for you!


Although this does bring a whole new meaning to "paper or plastic."

As in, "What am I eating? Paper or plastic?"


An ode to the power of positive thinking:

Suuuure you will. Although, considering that you're a cookie cake with crappy handwriting, I think it'd be more *accurate* to say you'll be in the:


I'm telling you, guys, the annual misspelling of "Super Bowl" to "Super Bowel" never gets old. Trust me.

"Go, Super Bowel! Go, Go, GO!"
