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? ;)

Totally Stuffed

Alright, turkeys, ya fat blobs of fowl: ASSUME THE POSITION!


No, no, you're all too stiff! Look alive, now - get those legs out! Spread eagle!

Good, now, hold it - hooold it...

Aaaaand...breathe.

Good work.

Well, except for you, Tom:


Seriously, Tom, we have got to work on those legs.

Ok, now that we're all warmed up, let's get right to today's topic: "purging" your "stuffing."

My friends, this is not the answer.

Neither are explosive clean-outs:


Look, we all know these displays are distasteful, so let's stop the cycle of shame!


And take heart from the example of our own Admiral Ackbar, a former stuffing purger, who went from this:


To this:

(He assures us it's an improvement.)

Thanks to Libbie M., Beth G., Stevi A., Maida S., Gina B., Corie I., & Rebecca, who are convinced the Ackbar turkey is a trap.

Clean Out Your Fridge Day

Today is National Clean Out Your Fridge Day! I know, I'm excited, too... mostly because the only things in my fridge are a box of old butter and a half-eaten tube of cookie dough. Still, for those of you who only wish they were so lucky, here are a few handy guidelines:

You might need to clean out your fridge if:

...you're staring at your leftovers and they start staring back.

...last week's pizza is flakier than your Aunt Milda's scalp.


...your lemons and limes are "spreading their seeds."

...last week's spaghetti and meatballs remind you to get your prostate checked.


...your squeaky-clean crisper gets more squeaky than clean.


...the top shelf items band together to form a new life form.

And the kids want to keep it.

And, lastly, if you see this in your fridge:

You should probably move.

Myra T., Eric B., Hillary G., Laura P., Leah C., Rachel P., Sibel D., & Candi S., call me if you find any pudding cups back there. I'll send you my address.
