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? ;)

I feel like bakers are trying to tell us something, you guys.


I'm just not sure WHAT.

Speak to me, Deadpan Penguin! What is it? What's wrong?


Is a festive volcano about to blow?


Are alien body-snatchers among us?




Maybe I'm reading too much into this next one, but I think it's saying:

(That's our #1 problem!)


Or maybe bakers are just messing with us. Maybe NOTHING's wrong, and they think we're a bunch of nincompoops.


Or maybe

But probably not.


Well, whatever bakers are trying to tell us this season...

May yours be volcano, body-snatchers, and plague free.

...But It's Still Better Than A Peach Candle

'Tis the season... TO RE-GIFT!

That's right, minions, now's the time to gather up all those unwanted soap sets, bottles of wine, and peach candles, and hastily foist them on your unsuspecting in-laws!

So in that spirit, I (re)give you: RE-GIFTED CAKES!

Ahh, but how do you re-gift a cake, you ask? Like this:

They'll never know.


Or like this!

Just blame the baker. After 8+ years, I've made that SUPER easy.


Is that office cake from last month still sitting around? PERFECT:



OK, but what if you only have one cake to re-gift, but lots of people to re-gift to?

Got ya covered:


Just like fancy soaps or DVDs, it's all about the packaging. As long as it's sealed properly, no one can question whether it's used or not!

Well, this one might raise a question or two.
Especially if you have chocolate smears on your face.


I like to have a re-gift cake on hand for those unexpected occasions:

Just fill in the blank!


Of course, sometimes a re-gifted cake needs a little work.

Like when you HAVE a pink-and-orange butterfly cake, but NEED a Spider-Man one.

BAM. Spiderweb-wrapped butterfly.

It's a re-gifted cake miracle!
