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? ;)

Conversation Starters

Show of hands: who got a box of conversation hearts yesterday? You know, the chalky little candies printed with whimsical messages of friendship and affection? Like "Booty Infl8n?"

Ok, now put your hands down. You're just embarrassing yourself.

I only ask because some lucky individuals received cake or cookie versions of the famous candies yesterday, and I'm wondering if they're all as whimsical as this:

Hey, it's no "huge me," but I'd take it.

Well I'll try, but darned if I know what "MNE" is.

Gosh, I've never been called neck wear before. Um...thank U?

The best part is this doesn't make me want to run away and file a restraining order at all.

If you're asking, then a) Seriously? and b) No.

And you're going to need another your/you're refresher.


No, seriously seriously.

Come over here so I can slap you.

On second thought, stay over there.
Way, way over there.

You know, part of me thinks this simply has to mean "Sun Shine"...
but the other part remembers how to write a capital S.

So I'm torn.

Thanks to wreckporters Mike L., Jennifer M., Erin, Mariel K., Sarah, Noah E., Andrew T., Amy Z., Jacque K., & Susan R., who think we should give 'em something to talk about it: LOVE.

And then maybe a dictionary.


The Hardest Three Words To Say

Guys, I've been wanting to say this for a while now, but...[deep breath]...well, it's just never felt like the right time, you know? And now here we are, just the two of us and the Internet, and I, I KNOW...that we're finally ready to take that next step.

Ok. Here goes:

Wait. That came out wrong. I mean...

Um, that is, what I'm trying to say is...

Hang on; I've almost got it...

Yeah. Something like that.

And also:

So if you see Al, be sure to let him down easy.

Of course, declarations of love are par for the course today. Not to mention stuff like this:

And this:

And even this:

Still, when it comes to love, I think Cupid says it best:

Yeah. That's like, "whoah."

Thanks to Jared, Norma W., Christine, Sarah M., Lizzie S., Franco P., Howard P., & Michael C., who actually have no idea what Cupid said because they can't stop staring at his diaper.

Or is that just me?
