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? ;)

Sharks Bite

{Welcome back to your favourite prime-time brine crime drama- "Crab Cakes: Ocean Justice!" Before the commercial break, Crabtown was faced with its most terrifying nightmare yet: Someone drank all the coffee! But something more frightening is just around the corner...}

 

"Help! Someone, please help me!"

 

 

"If I move, he might see me."

 

"Yummy fish in belly time! NOM NOM NOM."

 

 

"Not on the Sheriff's watch, you great white JERK!"

 

 

"No one escapes my disturbingly mutated claws of justice!"

 

 


"Sheriff, look out! There's another one behind you!"

 

 

"Hahaha! You'll never escape us! Come here, ya' old chum!"

 

"That's IT. I'm not taking any more guff from these sharks! C'mon, Crabtown! Let's kick dorsal fin!"

"Your pitiful confidence is no match for my razor-sharp teeth... OF DEATH!"

"Oops. I crabbed my pants."

"Well, our Sheriff will show the sharks who's boss! Won't you, Sheriff? Go on. Tell them!"

"..."

"Sheriff?"

"Don't worry, guys! I have a sure-fire plan guaranteed to make those sharks leave us alone! FOREVER!

"Hey, sharkies! Say hello to my LITTLE FRIEND!" [whipping out photo]


"His name is Mr. Snuggly Buns."

 

[sniffle] "That's the saddest thing I've ever seen! Please, no more! We're leaving, I promise! C'mon, guys; I hear the west shore has some real cream puffs."

 

 

Whew! That was a close call there, but the Sheriff and Pickly Pete saved Crabtown once again! Tune in next week when we find out: Who drained the community pool? Where in the world is Crabmen Sandiego? And what happened to all the potato salad?!?

Ad Men

 

Scene: Sterley-Crouper Advertising Agency; board room; 1961


Creative Director, Don Baker: "Alright, team. We have a meeting tomorrow with Happy Cakes, the nation's top confectionery company, and we need to win them over with the perfect slogan. First and foremost, get June in here to pour me some scotch."

 

Leggy Olstead: "Don, it's 9am."

Don: "Don't give me any lip, Leggy. Just show me what you have."

Leggy: [clears throat] "Well, Don, I thought it might be good to have a positive look on sweets."


Don: "It's a CAKE company, Leggy, not a cookie factory. And proofread your copy. We don't pay you to make a joke of this business. Did anyone bring any real talent to this meeting, or should we all just close up shop and head down to The Goodtime Gal for a drink?" [yelling into the hall] "June! Bourbon!"

Paul Krambel: "I wrote something, Don, and I think you'll be pleased with my attention to what Happy Cakes leaves out of their product."

Don: "Quit sucking up, Krambel, and just show me what you have."


Don: "Krambel, quit wasting my time. My secretary could have come up with something more creative. Speaking of my secretary... JUNE! VODKA TONIC!"

Leggy: "Don, perhaps you'll prefer a more abstract approach. Paul and I worked all night on this one."


Don: "Yeah Leggy, still a cookie."

Paul: "Don, I think what Leggy is trying to say..."

Don: "Listen. You're a creative team. It needs to be modern. Edgy. Like this slogan we wrote for Clydesdale Cigarettes last year."

Paul: "Yes, Don. That was genius. Very poignant. We have a few more ideas..."

Don: "Well, let's have it, already. And June, this glass isn't going to refill itself!"

Paul: "Consumers appreciate truth in advertising..."

Don: "Next."

Paul: "Eating a Happy Cake is like being in a fairytale..."

Don: "Next."

Leggy: "We were thinking if we rented bunny suits..."

Don: "NO. I've got it: We keep it short and sweet. Literally."

Paul: "It's brilliant, Don! Perfection at its best! You're a true master at advertising. Bravo! I love you."

Don: "Leggy, have the proofreader look this over. And have June order a case of scotch and a carton of Clydesdales for tomorrow's meeting with Happy Cakes. If you need me, I'll be at the bar."

David L., Jill G., Kristin and Christopher, Amanda J., Laux, Maria, Ed P., and Daphne, I'm going to need a new secretary. And someone to empty this ashtray. And get me a bottle of gin. Better make that two bottles of gin. And some scotch. ... And some vodka. ... I like to drink.
