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 Dog Days of Dog Day

It's National Dog Day, wrecky minions!

Now, I realize it can be difficult to celebrate dogs when cats are so OBVIOUSLY superior, but hear me out:

1) Dogs are people, too.

Specifically, a kind of mutant Sheep People.


2) Today is the PERFECT day to show your dog-loving friends that you respect their life choices, and that you, too, can appreciate a wet nose in the crotch from time to time.*



[*Kidding, no one appreciates that. But don't tell the dog people.]


And thirthly, and most importantly, without dogs we would never have these cakes:

(Wow, they really DO poop everywhere.)

Though to be fair, I'm pretty sure most of these bakers have never actually SEEN a dog.


For example: bakers, I'm preeetty sure the legs don't go there:








And finally, is that a real dog biscuit??

'Cuz judging by Sunglasses' smug smile, I'm betting it is.


Well, thanks to Celia M., Steff, Julie, Natalie S., Julie D., Lisa, Kimberly & Lindsay N. for proving once again that even cat CAKES are bet... uh...

Never mind.

Happy Dog Day, everybody.

Win With Civility

Did you know August is National 'Win with Civility' Month? It's true; the internets told me so.

And since we could all use a reminder from time to time that "polite is always right," I've prepared a few handy tips.

Civility Tip #1 - Always precede a negative comment with a positive one:


Civility Tip #2 - Practice an attitude of gratitude:

And maybe your spelling.


Civility Tip #3 - Instead of rudely pointing out the birthday girl's faults, try focusing on her accomplishments:


Or, if s/he has no accomplishments to speak of, then try complimenting a physical feature.

There! See how easy it is to be polite?


Now, you try!

Ok, well, that's not so much a compliment as it is a reminder of old age - which is never polite.


Why not try opening up, instead? You know, tell her how you really feel?

Well, while I applaud your honesty, that's...not very positive.


Ok, new tactic: Is there anything you can congratulate her on? Something worth complimenting?

Ah, much better.

So remember, kids: polite is always right, and successfully kicking narcotics calls for frosted cheesecake.

Don't ask me why; it just does.


Thanks to Wreckporters Whitney M., Birdy, Susan K., Heather R., Andrea F., Gina G., & Janet S., who, for the record, have never had frosted cheesecake.
