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? ;)

Hats Off For Hats

Tomorrow is National Hat Day.

I'll pause here to allow you time to grasp the magnitude of that statement.

[grasping magnitude]

Now, as every red-blooded, hot-dog-eating, slightly-balding American knows, nothing is more important to our national identity than the hat. From the traditional baseball cap...

Fun fact: Baseballs were originally square. Look it up.

...to the sexy fedora...

Sex Y.

Ahem.

I said, "the sexy fedora."

There it is.

Now, where was I?

Oh, right.

Hats are a regular part of our lives. As such, we should cherish this regularity...


...ten gallons at a time.

Hats are also a great way to celebrate certain festive occasions.

Like volcano eruptions:



Or massive, unexplained squid migrations:


Or even just winning a race by a hare:


So today, let's use our heads.


And, of course, stay safe out there...

...no matter how hard that may be.

Hey Mary R., Ellen B., Tonya M., Bridget E., Lindsey, ML, Erin G., Lindsey M., and Jo., no lie: it took me three months to realize that thing is supposed to be a hard hat.

Boom, Boom, Acka Lacka Lacka Boom!

It was a night like this,
Forty million days ago.
A wreckerator piped a blob
Called it "cakey dino."


This one was spitting fire,

This guy was blue as ice!



I felt a little wired,

so I wrecked this next one twice!



I wrecked the dinosaur.

I wrecked the dinosaaaaaaur!

[Everybody, now!]

Open the door,

Get on the floor!


Everybody wreck the dinosaur!


Open the door,

Get on the floor.


Everybody wreck that dinosaur!

Boom, boom, acka lacka lacka boom!
Boom, boom, acka lacka boom boom!

One night I dreamed a dream,

Such a cute and lovely cake!


But it was not to be,

When I saw it awake:



That night while at a fancy wedding,

I looked around the room.

Behold the Wreck - you must be kidding:

That's what they got the groom??



They wrecked the dinosaur.

They wrecked the dinosaaaur!

Don't be a bore,

Get on the floor:



Everybody wreck that dinosaur!

Sorry you're sore, get on the floor!

Everybody wreck the dinosaur!

Some are pink and girly,


Some need a throat lozenge,

*cough hack cough*

Still we know that surely,

The dino gets his revenge!

BOOM, BOOM, ACKA LACKALACKA BOOM
BOOM, BOOM ACKA LACKA BOOM BOOM!

Hey Alison G., Jill B., Susanna K., Kelli T., Jeremy W., Sunny W., Debbie C., Misa M., Molly S., Marla S., & Liz S., have you ever seen the music video to this song? Wow. That's all I'm sayin'. Just...wow.

[UPDATE: Turns out the vid is only viewable for U.S. viewers. Sorry, guys!]
