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? ;)

Fall's Fails

Fall is officially upon us here in Florida, as evidenced by the fact that it's a blustery 78 degrees outside tonight. (Don't worry; I've already broken out the scarves, sweaters, furry boots, and electric blanket, just to be safe.)

The other way you can tell it's Fall, though - besides all the Floridians in snowsuits - is the fall-tastical offerings in our nation's bakeries:



I think.


Theoretically I KNOW this isn't a Can-Can dancer lifting her skirts, but darned if I can see anything else.


Because nothing says, "MMAAAUUUURGGHHH!!!" like a Hay Beast with peek-a-boo breasticles.



 Well, except maybe the Bell-Bottomed Scare Bear of Perpetual Perplexity:


He's Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Stayin' Alive.


Oooh, and if your birthday happens to fall during Fall, then you also have these fun options:


Thanks to this cake and John's alarmingly comprehensive knowledge of slang words, I now know that "nut" is also a verb.

I don't recommend looking it up.


Here's one for our pyromaniac fans:

My deer, you are on FIRE tonight!

Also, I think I'd have that lump checked out. Just sayin'.


And finally, this bakery helpfully reminds us that Fall is "Harevet Time"

  So get those bunnies in for their yearly check-ups ASAP, hear?


Thanks to Kiki, Nancy M., Addie H., Sarah T., Bevin, Tanya S., & Shelley for the nice trips.

The Beach Is Terrible And These Bakers Know It

Fall, Schmall - it's still 90 degrees here in the South, and we know just how to celebrate sun, sand, and whatever is happening here:

If you squint your eyes and back up a little, this will totally look fuzzier and farther away.


Look, Truth Time: we all know the beach sucks.

After all, it's hot,


...there are people there, a shark could eat your Barbies...


...there are people there, there's the whole sand situation...


...and sunburns,

(Actual photo of John after 20 minutes outside.) more people, and, well, you get the idea.


And can we talk about the littering? Because forget diapers in the ocean, now there are WHOLE BABY BUTTS:

This... cannot be sanitary.

Though I'll admit a grudging respect for whoever decided "Sleeping With The Fishes" was the perfect baby shower theme. I just hope they ran with it and had dock-side decorations, cement shoe balloon weights, and of course floating baby ice cubes, which for some reason are an actual thing.


Thanks to LeeAnn H., Heidi K., Porsha K., Chad C., Jennifer K., & Mary Susan for helping ensure none of my friends ever ask me to throw a baby shower. Again.
