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? ;)

Ghost Taunters: Friday the 13th Editions

[dramatic voice-over guy]: "Today, on Ghost Taunters International, the team travels to Geneva to investigate an ancient spa slaughterhouse that was also used as an asylum for homicidal clowns."

"Uh...guys? Does the fountain always do that?"


"Where tortured souls, rubber noses, and victims of unspeakable beauty treatments lie in wait..."

"There's something in the water. THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WATER."

[sounds of scuffling]

"Oh, never mind. It's just some disembodied arms. And maybe a child's head."

"PHEW! For a second there, I thought we'd found a cold spot."


"And dark forces seem to be the dark."

"Ok, who brought the dog?"


"Are these wayward spirits trying to break free from their unearthly shackles and actually make contact?"

"Okay, I've got a plan. Stay close...stay close!...and..."



[more scuffling]

"Oh. Sorry, Leslie. But really, you might consider laying off the white powder and mascara."


"What shocking new evidence will be revealed in the team's quest for proof of the supernatural?"


[gasping] "OMIGOSH. Someone said my name. Did you hear that? Something said, 'Leslie.' I swear! Did you hear it?"

"I dunno; sounded more like 'Cream Cheese' to me."

"I heard 'Velveeta.'"

"Anyone else getting hungry?"


"Or could these spirits be up to more serious funny business?"

"The clowns are angry. I can feel it."

"Ok, if there are any clowns down here, could you please give us another sign? Maybe this time without killing our camera man?"


"Will the team find answers in this circus/spa/slaughterhouse?"

"This was the seaweed wrap room, wasn't it?"

"How did you know?"

"Just a hunch."

"Or will they face their greatest challenge yet?"

"Ug. You know, in this infrared your pores look DISGUSTING. Seriously. You should, like, exfoliate or something."


"Find out, on Ghost Taunters, International!"

Castle Came-A-Lot

Making a castle cake?

Then here's a tip (or seven):

Photo removed at the baker's request.  Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot.

Always use protection.

As you can see, King Richard erected a castle here so safe it's absolutely guaranteed that nothing comes in OR out, no matter how hard the wind blows.



John: "Uh, Jen, it was King Arthur, not King Richard."

Me: [deadpan stare]

John: "Oh! Ahahahaa! Ok, I like where your head's at."

Me: "Tell it to King Richard, dude."


A seven turret salute to Sarah for finding a cake where the rubber meets the moat.
