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? ;)

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.

The Eyes Have It

It's National Eye Exam Month, guys! So how 'bout we give the old peepers a check up?

First, read the following aloud:

[scribbling on clipboard] Good, good....


Now these:

Hmm, not so good.


Let's try something else: read these numbers from right to left:





Now, find the fly.

Very good! Hard to believe the baker missed that.


Next let's test your visual pain tolerance. Tell me, which of these hurts more to look at?



Or B.



And finally, how many fingers am I holding up?

Good news, your eyes are fine!
But these bakers may want to get their heads examined.
