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? ;)

This Means CIVIL WAR

Rest assured, dear minions, I won't be spoiling the new Captain America movie for you... because I haven't seen it yet.

HOWEVER. I'm seeing evidence of the Avenger's newest conflict throughout our nation's bakeries, and believe me, it's not pretty.


In fact, I've been wondering why everyone seems to be Team Cap, but then I saw Iron Man literally punching out the sun:

Now that's just Stark raving.


And let's not forget the whole exploding crotch thing:

Nobody wants the exploding crotch feature on their team, Tony. NOBODY.


I assume this is a picture of the aftermath:

It's like his torso is made of break-dancing lobsters... and his crotch just fell off.
Which has gotta hurt.


Meanwhile, our boy Cap is as American as apple pie:

Though I still question putting icing on pie.


Plus, Rogers apparently comes with an enormous laptop now?

So that's handy.


And let's not forget how supportive Cap is around Hanukkah:

Such a nice boy.


Everyone's also buzzing about Spider-Man's role, but frankly, I'm a little suspicious:

Look what happens when he trips! 


So 'til John and I see the movie, I guess it'll just be Thor, Batman, and the rest of us turkeys:

Batman: "I'm Batman."
Turkeys: "Gobble?"
Me: "...yeah I'm going to the movie now."

How (Not) To Practice Proper Etiquette With Cake

It's National Etiquette Week, a time of reflection on how we, too, can be more etiquettey.

So let's start with our cakes, shall we? I mean, this is a cake blog, you like looking at cakes... it just all kinda works.



1) Don't talk about poo.


2) Or have edible icing poo.


3) Or have pictures of Pooh on poo.

Seriously, you people are starting to worry me.


4) Don't talk about money


5) Or the birthday girl's recent weight gain.



And finally, and most importantly:

6) Don't go into the kitchen at your friend's party and cut yourself a slice of cake before they do the whole candles-and-song thing, like this guy:

Not cool, man. NOT COOL.


Thanks to Rachel B., Alison T., Jerri C., Gomez, Jessica S., Diana K., Anony M., & Nathan M. for making us all better etiquetters. Go forth and etiquette good, peeps!
