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? ;)

The Masked Menace

And now, I'd like to tell you all a little Mardi Gras story. It's the story of how one baker was given this picture for inspiration:

...and then asked to make Madison's sweet 16 birthday extra sweet.

This baker was no common decorator, though. She preferred to blaze her own path, rather than lowering herself to such common standards as "pretty" or "appetizing."

So the baker made a cupcake cake (ptooie!), used up all her colored icing outlining the bottoms of the cupcake wrappers - guaranteeing sticky hands and stained fingers - valiantly knocked a few sprinkles on top, and then bravely did battle with both common sense and decency before heroically charging Madison's family $34.99.




Thanks to Madison H. for that stirring tale of highway robbery.

Chasing Shadows, Deja Vu The Third

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.. having this cheeky little fella:

aka "the guy with the crappy back end":


"Did I do that?" 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.

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!


[crickets chirping]

Oh, never mind.

Happy Grounn Dhog Day, y'all.
