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? ;)

Conversation Starters

Show of hands: who likes conversation hearts? You know, the chalky little candies printed with whimsical messages of friendship and affection?

Ok, now put your hands down. You're just embarrassing yourself.

I only ask because some lucky individuals get cake or cookie versions of the famous candies, and I'm wondering if they're all as whimsical as this:

 Hey, it's no "huge me," but I'd take it.

 

Well I'll try, but darned if I know what "MNE" is.


Gosh, I've never been called neck wear before. Um...thank U?

 

 

Aw.
The best part is this doesn't make me want to run away and file a restraining order at all.

 

 

If you're asking, then a) Seriously? and b) No.

 

 

And you're going to need another your/you're refresher.

 

 

Seriously.

 

 

No, seriously seriously.

 

 

Come over here so I can slap you.

 



On second thought, stay over there.
Way, way over there.

 

 

You know, part of me thinks this simply has to mean "Sun Shine"...
but the other part remembers how to write a capital S.

 

So I'm torn.

 

Thanks to wreckporters Mike L., Jennifer M., Erin, Mariel K., Sarah, Noah E., Andrew T., Amy Z., Jacque K., & Susan R., who think we should give 'em something to talk about: LOVE.

And then maybe a dictionary.

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.
