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? ;)

Yesterday we here in America remembered our fallen heroes.

Today, we remember...the American Flag.


O-oh, say can you SEEEE? BYYY the bakery light?
How so soundly they failed... to give our flag any meaning:

Those brown stripes and blob "stars" ARE a scurr-i-lous sight!

And the RED parts they botched... are so def'nitely leaning:

And what's that O-VER THEEEERE?!

[cymbal crash!!]



[slide whistle!]


A goof, what a sight - it's more THAN I can bear.

(Yes. Really.)


No WAY does thi-is new-fangled airbru-ush yet blaa-aaaave!

[You know, "to blave?" It means "to bluff."]

[Now, someone fetch me an MLT!]



For the BAND of the THREEEEEE (red stripes)...

And the hoooome...of theeeee....WAAAAAAAVE!

(Before you ask: all of today's wrecks were sold right here in the good ol' US of A, on or around American holidays. I also have LOTS more where these came from. [proffering tissue] Tissue, teachers?)


Thanks to ToniAnn B., Trace L., Stephanie P., Sarah C., Kelly S., Sharon E., Lori A., Lin Q., & Daniel K. for their flagging enthusiasm.


Happy St. Memerial's Day!

It's Memorial Day here in the U.S., a day when we pause to celebrate and remember the sacrifices of our fallen military heroes. Fortunately, our nation's bakers have done their part, too, reminding us:

"Never Foget,"


And to:

"Alyauys Remember..."


Because we MUST...

Let the dome be free! AND LET FREE DOME RING!!


And why does the dome ring?



Well, that clears things up.

(I'll help you out: It's supposed to say "In memory of our fallen soldiers." What it *actually* says is "Memolg of oar alling Soldie." In related news, I'm so proud to be an American right now, I could just deep-fry a stick of butter!)


So in closing, allow me to wish you all a very:

And let's hope Memerial enjoys it, too.


Thanks to Jolly D., Dawn S., Dawnan H., Beth H., Laura M., and to all of our military personnel and families - past and present - for defending us even when we don't show them the respect they deserve. We are forever in your debt. God bless you all, with extra sprinkles on top.
