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? ;)

Voting Update: This One's For John

Greeting, Wreckies! (Yep, I've upgraded you from "henchpeople". You're welcome.)

It has come to my attention that there's a bit of controversy brewing over at The Weblog Awards in regards to the number of votes Cake Wrecks is receiving there. Why? Well, I think this has something to do with it:


Yes, within mere hours of my post asking you to vote, Wrecks was catapulted into a hefty lead as thousands of you did exactly that. However, what I see as an outpouring of loving support from you loyal readers others see as possible fraud. Apparently there are those who find it hard to believe that a goofy cake blog could garner such support - so much so that there is now a discussion on TWA's boards where accusations are flying hot n' heavy. (Although I must say that TWA moderator Sean is handling it extremely well.)

Now, personally this little "issue" doesn't bother me. I know that about 48,000 of you read this blog every single work day, and since The Weblog Awards allows you to vote once a day those numbers are not unreasonable. However, my darling, dear husband is, shall we say, "affronted". He seems to see this as a point of honor which must be defended. How? By doing it again, of course!

That's right, so in case you haven't already, please, for the sake of my dear affronted hubby John, go vote again for Cake Wrecks. Let's show those negative-Nancy-nincompoops that it doesn't take a hacker or automated scamming whichydoodles to get a landslide victory at The Weblog Awards; it just take a kick-a$$ blog audience. This is the last day of voting, so let's go out with a bang, shall we?

To kick a$$, CLICK HERE.

Oh, and not to beat a dead horse or anything, but could one of you nominate Wrecks in the more appropriate category of "best humor blog" or "best new blog" over at the Bloggies? Nominations close today at 10pm EST. Thanks!

Cake Wrecks Gets Its Own TV Show!

Ok, so maybe not. But, as alert Wreckporter Margaret S. points out, whoever scripted this vlog promoting the new CBC show Being Erica is obviously a not-so-closeted Wrecks fan. Heck, the video is even titled "Cake Wreck":

Hey, you think this was the inspiration? Either way, I think Cake Wrecks transitions well onto the small screen, don't you? In fact, how's this for an idea: a reality/candid camera show where a bakery deliberately messes up orders in the most ridiculous ways possible. I'm telling you, it'd be a comic GOLDMINE. Just throw in some smiley clueless cashiers, a sadistic ex-military shop manager, a guy who only speaks in pig Latin, and a dirty-minded grandma, and you've got yourself the Next Big Thing. Srsly. I'm accepting offers now, networks...
