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? ;)

Rising to the Occasion

[WARNING: Those blessed/cursed with a dirty mind are going to find this post hee-LARIOUS - but should probably clear the room of innocents first. Remember, Santa is watching, kids.]

 

There's just something about this time of year, am I right? Crackling fires in every fireplace, romantic twinkly lights in all the trees, and of course, skin-tight Santa suits. Yep. This, my friends, is the season... OF LURRRVE.

And a good thing, too. After all, it makes us more giving:

(Step 1: Cut a hole in the box.)

 

More attentive:

"Yes, deer."

 

And even when we're feeling a bit knotty:

[insert 'morning wood' joke here]

... we know this is the time when its better to bury the hatchet, not leave.

 

Yes, it's the season for dropping the underpants of our emotional reticence, and letting the ding-a-ling of our love shine out.

(Oh, it's happy, all right.)

 

I guess what I'm trying to say here, my friends, is that Rudolph has a giant wang on his face:

And you've just gotta love that.

 

Thanks to Sarah L., Nick, Bridget F., Luke, & C for taking a firm upper hand with these rascally wrecks.

Anybody Wanna Peanut?

[WARNING: Very mild adult humor ahead. Hide the children-folk!]

 

John and I like to chat via Instant Messaging when we're across the house from each other. (Because AMERICA.) Below is our actual IM conversation from last night over today's cake:

 

Me: Well, this earned a triple-take: [attaches photo]

John: What is that??

Me: You'll figure it out.

John: Is it a number 1?

Me: Noooo...

John: Seriously, what the what?

Me: Look closer.

John: I literally have no idea.

Me: *sigh* It's Thor's hammer, ok?

[short pause]

[loud guffaws echo from the other room]

[short pause]

John: Ok, so why the heck is there a peanut on the tip???

Me: I have no idea. Maybe he's a Princess Bride fan?

 

And before you all mention it, yes, this IS a pretty great cake... minus the surprisingly obscene topper, of course. Personally I like to think that Clayton is just a fan of the Avengers and Princess Bride.

Thanks to Melanie K. for letting me hammer home another dong joke.
