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? ;)

9 Times Strategic Thinking Really Paid Off

As you know, September is International Strategic Thinking Month, so while we hang our Strategic Stockings and hum the Strategery anthem, let's take a quick break for cake... strategically.


1: Is your handwriting too big?


2: Too small?


C: Did you start too high?


D: Or too drunk?


5: Do you need to break up a word with a dash?


F: Did you put the emPHAsis on the right syLAble?


VII: Do you know how balloons work?


XVII: Are you feeling dizzy?


And if all else fails, remember: with a little strategic thinking you can print your cake design, thereby eliminating the chance of any... uh... oh.

The Write Stuff

For Handwriting Analysis Week I thought we should take a fair, unbiased look at what kind of sick, twisted deviants could be writing on our cakes with their sick, twisted piping bags.



Exhibit A.

One can observe from the jagged, hesitant strokes and middle patterns that this individual has an impulsive emotional responsiveness and cautious self-castigation. Also present: a nagging apprehension that she left the coffee maker on.


Exhibit 2.

Note the broadminded structures and upward slant that shows a tendency toward self-deceit and argumentative euphoria, with a perfunctory nod to antidisestablishmentarianism. Tsk. So typical.


Exhibit 6.

Totally horny.


Exhibit IV.

Horny, with a side of cautious self-castigation.


Exhibit È.

Randy as a tipsy Newman.


Exhibit Spoon.

Potential ax-murderer. Who is horny.


And finally:

Exhibit Nein.


A magical unicorn with telekinetic powers.

Or an overworked shift manager, who has a headache.
