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? ;)

Fetal Bites

So what are all the "in-the-know" cookie connoisseurs talking about these days? Why, the newest rage in baby-shower cuisine, that's what: fetus-shaped cookies!

And how do you GET fetus-shaped cookies? With a fetus-shaped cookie cutter, of course! (Duh!)


Here's what they're saying over on Stupid.com, where you can purchase your very own FSCC:

"At last, EVERYBODY can have "one in the oven" with the deliciously disturbing Fetus Cookie Cutter!

Imagine the expression on the teacher's face when your kid hands out oatmeal or chocolate chip fetuses to all the students. We can almost hear the Principal calling now."

They also point out that it takes a special kind of baker to make these babies, which I would have to agree with. And if you're still not disturbed, check out the video which features the song "Fetal Bites" to the tune of Edelweiss. (Sample lyric: "small and white, far from right, you sit on my tongue sweetly") I guarantee you'll find it horrifying. Or hilarious. One of the two, anyway.

Is anyone else picturing these cookies wearing little fondant bow-ties and top-hats, maybe even holding a (sugar) cane? No? Just me? Right, er, never mind then.

Heather K., I think you were the first to submit this, so thanks!

Because Every Blog Needs a Jingle

There's a series over on Comedy.com called Geek Pad, which is a "weekly roundup on the latest in news and gadgets". This past week the show's creators and hosts, Sam Riegel and Rob Blatt, honored me with a gift. The gift...of music.

Hit it, boys!

(This is the whole episode. If you get impatient, skip ahead to 1:27. Oh, and parents: be aware there is some mild language in the vid.)

I would like to thank Sam and Rob not only for the music (the song I'm playing), but also for being such devastatingly intelligent, witty, and attractive guys. Impeccable taste AND funny to boot? You two feel free to geek out at my pad anytime.

You know, to play cards. My hubby and I are always looking for new Spades partners.
