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? ;)

The Top 12 Cakes To Bring To Your Family Reunion

The Top 12 Cakes to Bring To Your Family Reunion:

(Assuming your family has an excellent sense of humor.)

(Or you just don't like them.)

With this many grammar errors, you can always blame it on your younger cousins.

 

Make sure you insist everyone sing to him, too.

 

Works best if your last name is Trumpet. Or if you have a bunch of sentient squabbling horns around.

(No, I don't know the back story. Feel free to imagine your own.)

 

And this one works best if you there are either a bunch of teenage girls in your family, or none at all.

 

Just like there's no place like the back seat for carrying home an ROUS and a giant ... log?

("Anybody want a peanut?")

I *think* this was supposed to say "Lordy Lordy, look who's forty." I like the vaguely ominous portent-of-death vibe, though. And, hey, conversation starter!


Because a little honesty can go a long way... towards getting everyone to leave early so you can go back to playing LEGO: Harry Potter.

 

Mom always said to be positive. Or possibly "possitive."

 

Serve with copious amounts of alcohol. Then:

... set this one out while no one's looking, sit back, and watch the accusations fly.

 

This is another one I don't have a back story on, but I like to imagine it was ordered by that Debbie Downer relative who's always going on about "kids these days" and how "we'll all belong to China in a few more years - just you watch."

Also, yes, that relative might be me. WHAT.

 

And finally:

SO CLOSE to "family ruin," and yet ... so far. Drat. 

WAY TO GET MY HOPES UP, BAKERS.

 

Hey Shelly G., Krissy M., Amy S., Lisa C., Judi D., Laura B., Lisa V., Nicole S., Susan S., MJ, Vanessa S., & Laura S., I think I speak for us all when I say, "what's that supposed to mean??"

COMIC-CON!!

If you're a geek like me, then you know all the lucky/crazy people are at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. (Lucky because, c'mon, it's Comic-Con. And crazy because IT'S COMIC-CON.)

So whether you're packed in like a cape-wearing sardine at the event itself, or just watching the coverage online like me with a mixture of jealousy and amazement that people are seriously paying $50 a day just to park, this is for you:

 

Highlights from Batman & Spider-Man's Day At San Diego Comic Con:

1) The Road Trip:

"I believe that clerk gave us the economy 'mobile."

"Yeah, yeah. Hey, do we have to listen to your theme song the ENTIRE way? The nanananananas are giving me a headache."

 "Yes."

"Jerk."

 

2) The Restraining Order:

"Hey, it's not my fault those fans didn't appreciate my southern web-slinger. That takes real talent, you know!"

"Don't talk to me."

 

3) The "Comic Book Crafts" Panel They Waited 4 Hours In Line For:

"I still say it's not fair you used the Bat-Icer on yours."

"You're just jealous of my utility belt, Spandex-Man."

"That's IT. I'm telling Alfred."

 

 4) The "Hunky Heroes" Photo Shoot with Iron Man:

 (Which Spider-Man's web-slinging ways gets them kicked out of. Again.)

 "I think you have a problem."

"Oh, lighten up. At least Tony thought it was cool."

 

5) The Unexpected Early Departure:

"Wow. That Tannen fellow sure was spunky! Did you SEE his right hook? Although I could have done without the puns. Who says, 'now make like a tree, and get out of here,' anyway?"

"Just shut up and drive."

 

 

Thanks to Amy, Sara G., Mike L., Jennifer W., & Julia K. for bucking common conventions.
