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? ;)

What A Dad Wants

Every dad is different, of course, but as Father's Day draws near let's take a moment to consider a few things most dads do enjoy:

 

You know, like reading his kids an uplifting bedtime story:

 

And then tucking them into bed:

 

Maybe your dad is an animal lover:

 

Or just likes relaxing outdoors, watching the butterflies flit by...

 

Maybe he's the type to really throw himself into his work at the DC Cook Nuclear Power Plant:

 

Or he might prefer getting a little more down and dirty in his off time:

 ... on his dirt bike.

 

Whatever your own dad is like, though, I think we can agree that every dad lives for that one shining, special moment: the one that will change his life forever.

 

The moment HE gets to order the baby shower cake:

 

 

Thanks to Lindsey W., Gina C., Anna C., Lizz R., Elizabeth E., Rebecca, & Julie L. for getting all that off their chests.

The Seven Stages of Wrecks

Remember, my friends: recognizing the stages is the first step to healing.

 

Shock or Disbelief:

"No, seriously. Where's the hidden camera?"

 

Denial:

"That CAN'T be my cake. I ordered a turtle."

 

Anger:

"This is what you call cake decorating?!"

 

"And I'm not paying for that one, either."

 

Bargaining:

 "Twenty four bucks, huh?

"I'll give you five."

 

Guilt:

"If ONLY I'd just learned to bake, my daughter wouldn't be in therapy for coulrophobia!"

 

Depression:

 "I just... I just wanted a nice cake for the party..."

 

Acceptance and Hope:

"It's fine. I've just got a dirty mind. Maybe no one else will notice."

 

Huge thanks to Jane R., Jodi T., Maria E., Edmund, Cheryl, Allegra R., Marissa C., and Alexis V.  I couldn't have gotten through this without you guys!
