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? ;)

FIFTEEN YEARS, BABY!!

Today is my fifteenth wedding anniversary, and that always gets a girl asking the Big Questions.

Questions like, "What, no cake?"

 

And, "how do you spell 'anniversary,' anyway?"

 

And, "Does this seem suspicious to you?"

("It's. Looking. At me.")

 

After spending one third of my married life writing this blog - which, WOW, amirite? - I've seen enough anniversary cakes to know many have valuable life lessons to teach.

For example, this one reminds us that the first few years of marriage are a learning experience.

A four year "anniversity," if you will.

 

And this one encourages us to never give up in the face of adversity, poor planning, or earthquakes:

 

Its always the thought that counts. ALWAYS.

 

And here's a valuable reminder that, after 24 years, even the most devoted couple might need a little more space:

 

Love comes in all shapes, sizes, and combinations, so never judge.

Some folks would have given up after, like, TEN weddings - but not these two crazy kids!

 

And finally, anniversaries aren't just about the big, life-changing moments; they're about celebrating all the everyday things you get to share together. Things like holding hands during the fireworks, or reading to each other on long car rides ... or even just a new pair of dentures:

Though for the record, Sweetie, I think I'm going to draw the line at sharing dentures.

 

Thanks to Sarah G., Jaime & Jen, Janet R., Mika R., Brad L., Brittany T., Anna F., Christine M., & Kristin R. for helping us celebrate. John and I are in Atlanta today for Dragon Con, btw, so I hope to see some of you here!

Truth In Advertising

Bakers, in today's lagging economy the race to earn customers' hard-earned dollars is on. So how can you stay ahead of your competition? With tasteful, quality display-cakes, that's how.

 

Yep, you want displays that draw people in. Displays that show off your skills. Displays that say, "Hey, we're a modern, 'with-it' bakery that knows just how to relate to today's generation."

"You see, kids, there once was a time when phones had cords on them."

 

You also want cakes that show you take your job seriously:

 

And that your figure modeling is second-to-none:

"GREETINGS, HUMANS. WE ARE TWO UNIQUE FEMALES WHO ENJOY SITTING IN CASUAL MANNERS. TAKE US HOME OR WE WILL STUN YOU WITH OUR LASER EYES. JUST KIDDING.
HA. HA. HA."

 

But also some that show you aren't lacking in the crazy department:

"Proud to be the only bakery that offers large chocolate grenades in our 'Peeps VS Bobble-Heads Soccer Match in the Desert of Doom' design - now with random Rugrats!"

 

Jasmine D., Erin F., Lisa M., Sarah N., & Maren J., can you spot the grenade?
