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? ;)

Punctuation Rule's

Today is National Punctuation Day, so I thought it'd be good to go over the five basic;... "punctuation" rules.

Bakers, pay attention.


Rule #1: Sometimes periods, question marks, and exclamation points are important.


And they usually go at the end of the sentence.

(But what if it's not mine?)


Rule #2: Commas. Use them.

Unless you actually own an ass quitter.


Also note that the word "comma" can sometimes sound like "karma."

Just FYI.


Rule #3: Apostrophe's. Sure. Why not.


(And that's the FIXED version...)


Rule #4: When in doubt, throw in some extra exclamation marks.

What you lack in competency you can always make up for with enthusiasm.


Or, if you're REALLY confused, try some ellipses!



And finally:
Rule #5: Quotation Marks Are For Sarcasm, NOT EMPHASIS.

If it helps, just imagine Dr. Evil saying the bit you put in quotes.




Yep, just follow these five simple rules, and you'll be fine.

Bakers Celebrate National Punctuation Day?!

And now...

Punctuation Tips From Professional Bakers...


1) Always put punctuation at the end of a sentence. Unless you forget or think it looks better this way.

I like it.


2) Quotation marks are perfect for emphasizing you don't understand quotation marks.

"Good" job!


3) They can also help cover "mistakes!"

"That's my nickname for you. That I just made up."


4) A slash generally means "or," but hey, if it feels right...


5) Proper punctuation can convey a sense of enthusiasm, so choose wisely!!

Because everyone hates Jonathan.


6) No one really understands how apostrophes work, so just sprinkle them in wherever.


7) When in doubt, go with a question mark. Inside parentheses.

It's not the punctuation Gotham needs.
It's the punctuation Gotham deserves.


And finally, remember:

8) Punctuation is important. Just put it anywhere.
