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? ;)

A Thank You Note To Wreckerators

It's National "Write A Letter Of Appreciation" week, so I'd like to take a moment to thank the people who've made the last 8 years of my life possible:

The wreckerators.


Dear Wreckorators,
Hi. It's me again.
Listen, I know you're busy...



...and I don't want to distract you...

So close.


...but I want you to know how much we all appreciate you.
Because you're specail.
EXTRA specail.


Without you, the world would never have experienced the glory of edible baby butts:


Or known that balloons could look this much like sperm:


And brides-to-be wouldn't lose nearly as much sleep.


Plus, without you, wreckerators, I wouldn't question my ability to spell "congratulations" on a near-daily basis.

Is this right? I've got 173 more unpublished misspellings of this word waiting in the archives, so... I HAVE NO IDEA.


Yes, wreckerators, you've made the world a vastly more interesting place, and I for one love it.

Here's to us being Best Buds literally forever:

Or literally in center.

That works, too.


Thanks to Susan H., Debi E., Erika P., Bria C., Tess B.,Virgina B., KM, & Michelle E. for reminding us just how sad a wreck-less life would be.

A Toad-ally Awesome Leap Day Celebration

It's Leap Day, minions, so we've decided to take the completely original route of celebrating with frog cakes.

It's a frog. Honest.


The correlation between Leap Day and frogs is obvious, of course:
both are things you tend to forget unless you were born on one.

(To be fair, that'd probably also be pretty memorable for the frogs.)

[croaking sounds]


Plus, you know, frogs jump and stuff.

...when they're not getting run over.

Just like Leap Day runs over with, um, happiness?



Also like Leap Day, frogs rarely show up on calendars.

Unless you count the annual Ripped Ribbets of Reno page-a-day.
("These amorous amphibians are ready to show you their bachelor pads!")


Let's see, what else?

Ah, well, Leap Day only happens every four years, just like frogs take turns visiting me in the shower every four years.

Let's just say they're not the only ones who can hop around and scream bloody murder.


Yep, both Leap Day and frogs can catch us by surprise:



...and are hard to hold onto:


...but should always be celebrated with style:

...until someone gets peed on.

Then the party's over.

So happy birthday, Leap Day babies, and happy Leap Day to the rest of you!


Thanks to Andrea L., Katie M., Christina W., Jenny P., Lynette, Melissa M., Jen C., and Diane C. for the best ways to have a frog in your throat.
