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? ;)

Strategic Strategery

September is International Strategic Thinking Month! Time to celebrate the joys of planning, forethought, thinking ahead, planning, and, you know...um...

Hey, look! Cake!

Dashes make everything better -

...as I'm sure Queen J agrees.


Don't you hate it when there's that one really looong word in your inscription?

[shaking fist] Darn you, "happybirth!" Why do you have to be such a long, difficult-to-break-up word?!?

Of course when you do split up long words, knowing where to make the break is key:


In this case, placing "grounn" and "dhog" on separate lines just makes good, old fashioned sense. You know, kind of like cocaine in Coca-Cola. Or leeches.

'Course, if you play your cards right, then you won't have to break up any words:

[squinting seriously] "Now that's strategery."

Of course, when you have an oddly shaped cake strategic thinking is a must:


See how the baker left off the edge dots where the letters hang over? [tapping temple] Smarts, man. Smarts.

Nadine, Justine J., Krista M., Kevin H., P.K., Erin P., I wrote a short speech to thank you all for your contributions. [ahem hem hem]

Let's Play Telephone!

"Hello, and welcome to the Systems Calibration Registry for Engineering Wireless Upgrades!
As you all know, this is a big year for our Brunswick team: they successfully released version 2007.18 last week!

[polite applause]

"Great job, guys!

"Now, before we get started on our exciting 5-day agenda of software and development lectures, why don't we break the ice with a good old fashioned game of Telephone? Johnson, you start."

Johnson whispers to Carrier:
“Thanks and congratulations 2007.18 upgrade team.”

Carrier to Dorsman:
"Thanks and graduations! 2007 ate lean, up late teen."

Dorsman to Yates:
"Fangs and Conga lactations, tooth house and 7up! Clean up, laid Queen."

Yates to Lau:
"With all due respect, Governor, I do not own the rights to this monkey."


Lau to Mangan:
"Thanks and congratulations 2007.18 upgrade team."

Mangan to Gjertsen:

"BWAHAHAHAHAAA!! AHAHAha...ha...hee...hoo...

"Wait. Who ordered the cake?"

Enjoy the convention, Ashley M! We'll be lecturing on Day 4 in the North Wing Restroom at 4:30 pm. See you there!

And yes, the cake really was supposed to read "Thanks and congratulations 2007.18 upgrade team."
