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? ;)

Kiss Off!

This meeting of Leprechauns Who Can't Get Kissed on St. Patrick's Day (LWCGKSPD) will now come to order. Welcome, supernatural wee folk!

Now, let's go around the circle and share the excuses we got this year. Seamus?

"Well, I'm not sure it's an excuse per se, but most of them yelled a lot about me getting out of their bedrooms."


"A few said something about Hallie Tosis, but I've never even heard o' the lass!"


"They said I was too hairy." [belch]


"Too blonde."




Oooh, rough luck, guys. Clover joins us this year as an honorary member. Clover, how'd your St. Paddy's go?

"They said I was too needy. Me! Oh, and apparently crying is a 'turn-off.' So, you know, long story short: NOBODY got lucky."


"Hey, speak for yourself, Clover! A pack of pretty young things told me me nose reminded 'em of Owen Wilson!

"Best. St. Paddy's. EVER!"


Thanks to Sam G., Claire O., Gwynn R., Dan B., Tangie H., Jennifer M., & David B. for making sure that glistening schnoz will be haunting my dreams tonight. [shudder]

[shuffling virtual photographs]




still life of swift death
or delicious iced dessert
cooler heads prevail



buttercream bunions
metaphoric masterpiece
wedding with cold feet



expressive beach tree
dawning realization
calls for a face palm



The hottest new trend:
flaming baby shower cakes
Welcome to hell, B.



Down where it's wetter
Clearly not all that better
Ariel impaled



drowning our sorrows
won't call for giant tampons
and please hold the jam



From 'death do us part'
to avant-garde home decor
Rough divorce, Carol?
