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? ;)

National Canada Day

So apparently today is Canada Day. Now in our defense, we didn't even realize that the US celebrated Canada with its own day, but then, we do have Hamburger Day so I guess it's not that much of a stretch.

So, um, here's a cake:

And another one:


And now, in your honor, Canada, John & I will sing "Canada" from Epcot.

Jen: Canadaaaa...

John: CanadAAAA!

Jen: My Canada!

John: Dadadaaaa.

Jen: Blah blah blah bla doo dee doo dee doo dee planet earth.

John: Dadadaaa.

Jen: Um. Canadaaaa?

John: Canada.

Jen: My Canada!

John: Dadadaa. I think that's good.

Jen: Yeah. Totally.

Happy Canada Day, Shaunna & Jill P.

Oh, and to everyone else, too. Especially Canada.

Important note from john: Dear Canada,
It has come to our attention that nearly all of you were offended by today's post. It seems that Canada Day is apparently not an American holiday. Also, and correct me if I'm wrong here, the song from the Canada pavilion in Epcot is not actually your national anthem. Huh. Go figure. Also, it should be noted that Canada is far superior at hockey.

Please accept our deepest apologies,
john (the hubby of Jen)
