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? ;)

Super Bowel To The Rescue!

Sports fans, are you worried you've picked a crappy caterer for the big game this weekend?



'Course everyone knows Super Bowl parties are mostly about the food, so I guess it makes sense to have two pools of milk battling it out with colorful spatulas:

(No lie, it took me a solid ten seconds to realize that's NOT what this is.)


I'm still having trouble with team names, so somebody remind me:

Who is Sea Hawles, and why did Pac-Man have to die for him?


I do remember the Colts, though, because there's a young boy named Jack who is a huge Colts fan.

Unfortunately for Jack, though, if you write "Colts" a bit sloppily on the order form it can end up looking like a much different word:



It's a shame Jack couldn't switch with 6-year-old Reagan, who just wanted a pretty horse and flowers on HER cake:

On the plus side, Mom and Dad, I don't think Reagan wants a pony anymore.


Best of luck to both teams this weekend, and remember: Whatever happens, we can all take comfort in knowing there's only one real loser:


(I need to find the baker who did this, and shake her hand.)



Thanks to Sharyn H., Tara M., Kristy F., Sarah B., Jennifer F., & April M. for bringing her best game face.

Seahawks vs Broncos: The Wreck-Off

Today's a big day, my friends; we're here to celebrate the two teams going on to the Super Bowl!

So let's hear it for... [drum roll]

The Seahawks...


...and the Broncos!

[cymbal crash]


Hang on, I'm being told those logos weren't quite right. Lemme try again.

The Seahawks...


...and the Broncos!

[trumpet fanfare]


No? Still not right? Ok, hang on.

Aha! NOW I've got it.

The Seahawks...


...and the Broncos!

(Huh. Think this logo is hard to reproduce?)



Ok, ok, I've had my fun. So in all seriousness, let's give a warm, dignified welcome to the Sea.. um... hawks?


...and, of course, the Broncos!



Er, I mean... congratulations, guys! I hope you steal ALL the bases.


Thanks to Dawn D., Katie T., Travis M., Kayla S., Vanessa W., Amanda L., Astacia C., & and Rebecca W., who knows that of course you don't steal bases, in football; you dribble free throws.
