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? ;)

Where There's A Will

It's Talk Like Shakespeare Day!

So, instead of making Much Ado About Wrecking, we're just going to let the Bard himself insult the cakes.

 

"They lie deadly that tell you you have good faces."
- Coriolanus

 

"Thou art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood."
- King Lear

 

"I shall laugh myself to death at this puppy-headed monster!"
- The Tempest

 

"Thy food is such
As hath been belch'd on by infected lungs."
- Pericles

 

"Thou lump of foul deformity!
Out of my sight! Thou dost infect my eyes."
- Richard III

 

"I wonder that you will still be talking. Nobody marks you."
- Much Ado About Nothing

 

"A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; base, proud, shallow...

 

 

"...beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson...

 

"... glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave, one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch...

"... one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition."

- King Lear


Wow. Uh, thanks, Will. I couldn't have said it better myself.

 

I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks to Elisabeth T., Kimberly L., Alexandra D., Mallie R., Amy P., Rebecca C., Jennifer S., Libby W., Alison, and Talley. Fair befall you!

Cake Works

You guys may think writing Cake Wrecks is all fun and games, but let me tell you: Some days it's all we can do to make sense of our own keyboards!

 

When you see as many bad cakes as we do, it's easy to lose track of time.

And spacingth. And grammarth.

 

Then after we sort all the cakes, we have to write something funny-but-also-tasteful, so no one gets offended.

Boom.
Nailed it.

 

Then there's all the social media stuff!

Twitter is great, until you get the dreaded Fail Whale:

 

And don't get me STARTED on Facebook:

 

Then there's Google Plus:

[crickets chirping]

 

We're constantly upgrading our software.

 

After the Windons 8 debacle, we've done pretty well with Snow Lepard,

...although it can be a little spotty.

 

Yep, we've become Master Chiefs of Busines!

This cakey, wrecky busines.

Because you're worth it.

 

And in the end, I KNOW you're going to like this post.

Coocle Analytics tells me so.

 

Statistically speaking, the odds are pretty high I'm going to thank Sandra C., Katherine S., Kynli N., Lisa C., Suzanna H., Kate O., Chor J., Julie D., Emily D., and Tim. Because running spreadsheets is WAY easier than spreading frosting on sheet cakes.
