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? ;)

Halloween Tips

Tomorrow's the big day, people, so before you hit the streets to go trick-or-treating, here are some useful "guidelines" for having a safe and scream-worthy night:

Never accept rides from strangers. 

Especially if you see fingers hanging out of the trunk.


 Wear reflective clothing:

Or just something so unbelievably hideous that people won't be able to NOT notice you. You know, like Crocs and a Speedo. (As a bonus: EVERYONE will want your picture!)


Watch out for roving gangs of lower-case Ms:

They're vicious this time of year. VICIOUS.


If you're trying to scare someone, don't yell "Boo!" It's not scary enough. 

Instead yell, "SCARY BOO!"

 It also helps if you can throw spiders on them.


Never assume you know what someone's costume is. 

 One person's Elvis is another's Dracula, and you really don't need that kind of awkwardness.

"I vant choo to stay off of my blue svade shoos! Muah! Ah! Ah!"



Even if they give you crap candy like generic lollipops and little bags of candy corn*:

*Actual candy we will be giving out on Halloween. Plus little boxes of Milk Duds. Y'all come by, y'hear?


And try to look grateful when you're saying "thank you," too -  not like this:

"This is my happy face."


Lastly, and mostly importantly...


 He also goes by "The Spirit of Gasses Past."

I Say, "Stand Over There"

[With Apologies to Aretha]


Each day when I wake up

And think of our nasty break up


I bake another cake...

or two!


While torching your chair now


 While wondering which hussy's there now


I bake another cake for you!


My business 

Is booming...


 These things sell so well


 I really ought to thank you!

I'm better off single, 

I'm mending my heart


  ...and I don't miss you!


So, goodbye forever, that's how it must be

I'm making LOTS of money
