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? ;)

Turkey Talk

"Well, hello, there! SO nice to see you."


"Absolutely stunning weather we're having, don't you think?"


"Say, have you done something with your hair? Because it. looks. fabulous."


"And those shoes! So perfect!"


"Did you catch the game last night? I do love our boys, but I gotta say the other team beat us, fair and square."


"Ah, would you look at all these teenagers running around??

Such well-behaved youngsters, all of 'em."


"You know, I always enjoy meeting new people, but you have been especially delightful."


"No, no, please, after you. Bye, now!"


Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, everyone.


Thanks to Brandi, Cheyenne D., Jessica, Lindsay B., Marie, Stephani, Rhonda G., & Joanna for being extra nice.


Tiers for Fears

It's National Face Your Fears Day, my friends, so buckle up. You and me, we're gonna get through this.

See, the trick is to just tackle these things head on.

Unless it's giant spiders. NEVER TACKLE GIANT SPIDERS.


Er, everyone's afraid of being attacked by anthropomorphized melons bearing pointy plastic cutlery, right?


Well, I KNOW you're afraid of clowns, so here are a few time-tested techniques (from a former clown, I might add) for managing the Squeaky Nose heebie-jeebies:


1) Picture them naked:

But watch out for any funny squirting "flowers."


2) ... or dead:

They're far less likely to tie your intestines into balloon animals this way.


3) ... or better yet, naked AND dead.


See? Not so scary now, right?


Perhaps you suffer from Anatidaephobia, the fear that a duck is watching you.

I'm told this is a duck.


Never fear, I have a solution for that, too! See, there's this new show out called "Duck Dynasty," and while I've never actually watched it, I am sure it can remove your fear of ducks watching you...

... and replace it with the fear of this cake watching you.


Then there's the appropriately named fear of long words - which I swear I am not making up - called "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia."

This one is easily remedied; first, never tell anyone you have it.

Second, abbreviate everything.

It also helps to adopt a cryptic, mysterious air. People eat that stuff up, man.


And finally, for my fellow germaphobes:

Good luck with that.


I'm afraid that Genevieve G., Amy M., Amber, Nicole V., Kelsey W., Mandy B., Joelle P., Kelli P., & Andrea M. are all terribly nice people - even when they're brandishing plastic cutlery.
