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? ;)

Sooo Corny

Cake Wrecks readers, lend me your ears!


Thank you.

I will now field questions.

You there - yes, you - go ahead. Eh? Where did this cake pop up? I believe Wreckporter Carol Ann G. spotted it at her local supermarket. Yes, she is quite the Wreck stalker these days.

Next?

Sorry, your voice is a bit husky - what did you say? Oh, WHY did they make an ear of corn cake? Aw, shucks, how should I know? Maybe they just cobbled it together at the last minute.

Yes, Colonel? You had a question? No? Well, stop frittering away my time, then! Sheesh.

Hey, why are you all groaning? Don't try to butter me up, now: I know these puns are corny, but they're not THAT bad.

By my count that's 11. Happy punting (aka pun-hunting)!

Marine Wild Life: The Big 2-3-3!

I'm indebted to reader Amy O. for not only informing me that today is the Marine Corps' birthday, but for also providing a little Wreckage to go with! Now, her e-mail was positively loaded with important-sounding acronyms, but from what I could decipher she gets to inspect some of the DFAC's (that's dining facilities) cakey creations over in Iraq - you know, when she's not defending truth, justice, and top-secret acronym-creations.

To be fair, this isn't too bad. Someone just hit the "align right" button before piping in "Devil Dogs":

(That little smudgie next to the "s" is supposed to be an exclamation mark.) There are more spacing issues around the logo, too, and speaking of which... Uh, Amy, I think I need to look up the Marines' logo again, because that bit below the eagle looks like a...well... [shifty eyes]

Never mind. I got enough flak today for the Mario Lopez eye candy remark. ;)

SO...how 'bout that wonky "s" and "f" in "semper fi", eh? I mean, hey, what's THAT all about?
