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? ;)

Getting To Know You...

It's Getting To Know Your Customers Day!

So, bakers, I thought I'd introduce you to a few from the CW audience:







That little boy's face = me when I see a Whoopie Pie.


(That's the bride in green.)


Oh, and the next time you decide to cover a cake with black icing, bakers, please:



It's not all bad, though. In fact, Becky's 6-year-old daughter just found the cake she wants for her next birthday, and it's totally do-able.


From the Cake Wrecks book, no less!

Becky, you're clearly raising this kid right. Kudos.

And bakers, don't screw this one up. Or if you do, please remind Becky to send me a picture. :D


Thanks to Dawn S., Larissa S., Susan D., Jan M., Carol Ann, Brianna A., Christiana M., Amanda H., Kim C., & Becky S. for seeing "Dead People."

The Far Side of the Bakery

During the traditional "Ongo Longo" dance, the natives express thanks for the year's crops, the tribe's health, and for the glandular defect running rampant in the island's pigs.


The scientists found that results were mixed. Some mice seemed to enjoy the whistling spleen, while others were petrified beyond all bowel control.


As the minutes ticked by, Elmo realized with dawning horror that this was one staring contest he might not win.


Batman would later have cause to regret his rather insensitive "manual control" quip.


Wall-E considered. On the one hand, he adored Eve and wanted to make her happy. But on the other, he was surrounded by mounds of crap.


Thanks to Susan S., Beth M., Kimmi D., Bianca S., & Karen P. for the wrecks, and to Gary Larson for allowing me to be raised on The Far Side.
