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? ;)

Hey, All These Lyrics I Forgot...

Should all baking skills be forgot?
And never brought to mind?

 

Could all that schooling be for naught?

For all
dang
time.

 

For allll da-aang tiiime, my dear
For old brain wine!

La DAAAA da daaaaa da
something, something...

 

For bald hang(over) time!

Hey. You. Yes, you.

I LOVE YOU, MAN.

And you, too, lady.


Have fun tonight, guys, but please remember to always decorate responsibly.

 

Thanks to Anthony B., Lori D., Dimitra S., Cynthia P., & Jenny C. for helping us sing in the new yar.

Oh Tannen Bums

Don't sweat it, bakers; this month is going to be easy as pie. All you've gotta do is load up on super simple holiday designs!

 

You know, like Christmas trees:

 

and candy canes:

 

Or Christmas trees:

(I see the side silhouette of Ben Franklin. You?)

 

And strands of lights:

 

[rubbing temples] Or Christmas trees:

 

And stockings:

 

Or... Christmas trees?

 

Ooh, hey, or presents! Right? Can't get easier than a square with a bow on it!

Never mind.

 

[gritting teeth] Or Christmas trees:

 

Or candles:

 

Or... OH WOULD YOU JUST DRAW A GREEN TRIANGLE AND BE DONE WITH IT?

Thank you.

Next week: SPACING.

 

Thanks to Erin M., Wildkatt, Jason D., Christy G., Anne H., Anne K., Emma G., Jillian H., Christine, Maureen W., and Janet P., for making like these trees, and confusing the heck out of all of us.
