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? ;)

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.
