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? ;)

Sorry, Charlie

Warning: Parents, hide your kids. But not necessarily your wives.


There's a lot being said about Charlie Sheen right now - although one could argue that most of it is being said by Charlie Sheen. And while a lot of it might seem a bit crazy, I think you'll find his statements all make perfect sense...when applied to the right cake.

So, in the words of Charlie Sheen, "Just sit back and enjoy the show."

"Most of the time - and this includes naps - I'm an F-18."

"If people could just read behind the hieroglyphic ... if they could put their cryptology frickin' hat on just for two seconds..."

...then maybe they could tell me what the heck this says.

"I've got tiger blood, man."

I hear it tastes like strawberries.

"Resentments...are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my saber."

(Aka, "Is that a space shuttle in your pants, or do you need to see a doctor?")

"I've been a veteran of the unspeakable."

"I'm still alive, which is pretty cool."


"I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars."

"They picked a fight with a warlock."

"We're Vatican assassins. How complicated can it be?"

"I have one speed. I have one gear: Go."



"The only thing I'm addicted to is winning."

"Surprise! That's what winners do."

"I am on a drug. It's called 'Charlie Sheen.'"

By Cake and Art. And go here for the back story.

"Duh! WINNING."

Thanks to Jennifer D., Gideon S., Lauren W., Katie S., Kathryn R., Tosha S., Angela M., Rebecca J., Anthea H., I.W., & Amy H., who are ALL bi-winning.

Update from john: The Hieroglyphic cake apparently says 'Happy Birthday' in Gujarati, a language common in Western India. How it ended up in a display case in a chain store in Maryland, though, is still beyond us.

Like a Boss

Employee Appreciation Day is coming up this Friday, so I'd like to take a moment to talk to all the bosses out there.

You heard me, peons; we need to discuss how to make you feel appreciated, so scram. Go on.

Are they gone? Just the employers here? Good.

Ok, guys here's the deal: we all know the BEST way to make people feel appreciated is to pay them well, provide excellent benefits, and allow them plenty of time off to spend with their families.

But, luckily for you, cake works just as well.


In fact, I've got some great ideas to improve your company's morale year-round, and all within the budget-friendly confines of your local bakery. Check it out:

1) Cake Memos

What are cake memos? Exactly what they sound like:

Thumbs up for less e-mail!


Even better? Interactive memos:

Just provide each employee with their own colored tube of icing, and watch the communication efficiency improve!

2) Cake Compliments

Single your people out from time to time with a spontaneous compliment. If you can't think of one, just copy a line from the "strengths" column of their last performance review:


[insert lack of "profigency" in spelling joke here]

And don't worry; if you screw it up we both know your intern will just get blamed.

3) Cake Jokes

As with the home, the workplace can sometimes experience disagreements and strife. At times like these, it's helpful to remember that nothing diffuses a tense contract or labor union dispute quite like a little humor:


After you all share a big laugh, no one will mind having their share deducted from their paycheck!

4) Cake Sympathy

Though they may say otherwise, sometimes your employees don't want you to fix their problem; they just want your validation and sympathy.


And just like that, it's alllll better.

5) Cake Kicks to the Curb

And finally, when one of your work family moves on to another company, always be sure to part ways with good grace and affection:

And also maybe a security escort.

Thanks to today's workers Allison O., Sala C., Brittany K., Gary W., Matt I., Bethany H., Jennifer P., & Beth H., who all have profigency in wreckporting.
