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? ;)

STILL HERE

I'm particularly proud of today's lyrics, so for the full effect, hit play and start scrolling:


**********

 

I found the species of this land

Often aren't all there

This one took some time for me to understand

They gave me words I just can't say

Somehow this sells

Proving Cake Wrecks is still here to stay

'Cuz even though they don't like me sooo snide

That's the thing that makes me feel alive!

 

The Mayans show

You just can't know    

Why some people are so slow

But weeee're stiiiiill heeeeere

If they were right we'd all be gone

But big surprise: THEY WERE WRONG

 

 

And weeee can cheer:

STILL HERE!

 

Thanks to Stacey L., Nancy H., Kimm W., Julie G., Ben M., Kama K., & Lisa N. for the staying power.

 

P.S.

 

P.P.S. Clean water and memories to last a lifetime. You can give both by supporting these two amazing charities.

Is There No "Just Us"?

After you see the word "just" written on a cake enough times, you start to ask yourself, "How does this keep happening?"

 

I don't know. I honestly don't. 

But it still cracks me up.

 

Sometimes I can't help imagining the conversation:

"What would you like the cake to say?"

"'Happy Birthday.'"

"Anything else?"

"Just 'Happy Birthday.'"

 

 BAM.

(I see "Just Happy Birthday" so often that I'm starting to wonder if bakers think it's a "thing." You know, like Man Showers or Dubstep.)

 

Then there are the perils of ever thanking your baker:

 

 

Not to mention the perils of writing anything out with instructions, really:

And just like that, CC's hysterectomy cake would never be forgotten.

 

So bakers, remember: when in doubt about a cake, you're always better off writing nothing on it than risk getting the order wrong.

 

 

No, not "nothing ON IT," I mean just, you know, NOTHING.

 You're killing me here.


Ok, what if I tell you to leave the cake blank?

As I suspected:

We're doomed.

 

Thanks to Ginger E., Anony M., Jenny C., Nathan B., Nicole P., Cristina B., Kristen H., Erica, & Ross E., who know you can't take anything I say literally, because I only speak in similes. LIKE A BOSS.
