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? ;)

These Two Cakes Make The Perfect New Year's Eve Poem

Sometimes a serendipitous moment occurs in the Cake Wrecks archives - and this one was too perfect not to share.

So without further ado...

 

AN IMPORTANT PSA FROM CAKE WRECKS:

 

Happy New Year's Eve, minions.

 

And hey, keep it OUT of your pants, "Diame." [warning glare]

 

Thanks to Dianne M., Sarah F., & Megan W. for the old slang rhyme.

A Day In The Life

Jen and I are often asked what it's like to be "professional" bloggers. How do we spend our days? Do we have a swimming pool filled with gold coins? Are there fantastic parties and gourmet ketchups? The answer to all these questions is yes. Jen even has a green dress. (But not a real green dress. That's cruel.)

That doesn't mean it's all fun and games, though. Sometimes we take naps.

In fact, I think I'll keep a diary for a day, just so you can see firsthand the "glorious life" of the "Professional Blogger." Enjoy!

 

------------------------------------------


1:00 pm - Woke up to cats hammering on door and yowling. Note to self: get thicker door. Also, new cats.

 

 

"Mrow?"

 

 

1:35 pm - Cats' yowls going super sonic. Ear plugs ineffective. Time for the Super Soaker.

 

 

"Mruh Mroh."

 

 

2:10 pm - Jen's awake. Cats are hiding. I ask in my best Kirk impression (complete with hand gestures), "JEN! Are... you... readytobe... funny? We come in peace, shoot to kill, shoot to kill!"

 

Jen:

 

Note to self: Avoid Kirk impressions before Jen's fully awake.

 

3:45 pm - Checked on Jen in the office. She has 27 browser tabs open and is humming "Loathing." So far, so good.

5:20 pm - Jen comes out of her office to reheat some "breakfast."

 

Pizza and Maalox: breakfast of champions.

 

7:20 pm - A yell from the office: "Oy! What're some puns for 'lactating?'"

 

7:32 pm - Final tally: Milking it, so cheesy, really sucks, staying abreast of the whole situation, whipped into a frenzy, creamy complexion, skim off the top, nipped a pair of area oreos

 

8:15 pm - Maniacal laughter coming from office.

8:21 pm
- Loud sobs coming from office.

8:30 pm
- Colorful swearing coming from office. Huh. Rapid mood swings may indicate low blood sugar. I bring Jen a cookie.

 

Effect is immediate. "Ohh, and also 'eat, drink, and be dairy!'"

 

10:45 pm - Heading to McDonald's for lunch.

 

Thank goodness we're not food bloggers. (Oh. Wait...)

 

 

12:20 am- Break time. Watching Castle with Jen.

 

 

*snorfle*

 

2:15 am- Jen heads back to the office. I'm off to bed.

 

(This was supposed to say "Just because." Seriously.)

 

 

3:35 am - Woken by a loud yell. Rushed out to find Jen staring horror-struck at a new e-mail:

 

 

"Why? WHY?!?"

 

 

4:04 am - Convinced Jen to come to bed. She lies in the dark, muttering, "Can't sleep. Lobster in blond wig will eat me."

 

I think it's going to be another long night.


Thanks to Lyle, James, Alistair, Carissa, Amanda M., Helen W., Elizabeth M., Kristin S., Eilen, Tyler O., Dana S., & Beatrice Y., for helping us avoid "real" jobs. Now: nap time!
