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? ;)

Evolution Of A Big Bird Wreck

Stage 1: Excitement

"...now simply pipe seven thousand individual strands and you're done!"

 

Stage 2: Compromise

"Well, it's still kind of feathery..."

 

Stage 3: Apathy

"Meh, just spray it yellow."

 

Stage 4: Passive Aggression

"We call it, 'Big Bird In A Snow Storm.'

"And that'll be $37.99."

 

Thanks to Anony M., Rose T., Anony M., & Shannon B. for finding the face of despair. (Seriously, the longer you look, the more depressing it gets.)

Chasing Shadows, Deja Vu The Third Again

[alarm clock clicking to 6:00 AM]

[Sonny & Cher caterwauling to I Got You, Babe]

 

Ok, Campers, rise and shine! 'Cuz it's Groundhog Day!

Or, as Brenda here knows it:

"Groad Hogs Day"

 

Today is the day that we celebrate the.. day...by having this cheeky little fella:

aka "the guy with the crappy back end":

 

"Did I do that?"


...drive around town with Bill Murray looking for a weather forecaster who has no shadow. Which I think makes the weather forecaster a vampire.

 Ah, American holidays.

 

Today is also the day when we find out if winter will end soon or not.

 Hm...

Yeah. Good luck with that, every-state-but-Florida.

 

So, unless shadowless weather forecasters are run over by rodent and celebrity driven automobiles, I'd say most of you are due to see a lot more of this:

"Squashed octopodes?"

Er, no. I mean this:

"Blue crabs?"

No, no, no!

THIS:

[crickets chirping]

Oh, never mind.

Happy Grounn Dhog Day, y'all.

 

Thanks to Brenda M., M.Z., Melissa B., Saundra, Karen C., Jamie, & Kevin H., who would like to remind you to never drive angry. Especially with a quadruped

See you tomorrow, campers!
