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? ;)

Really? Really.

And now it's time for a segment I like to call, "Really? Really," with J-dog.

By the way, J-dog is how I refer to myself when I'm hopped up on Twix. Thanks to the leftover Halloween candy, J-dog's gonna be visiting for a while.

Here we go.

This is a number 6:

Really, you ask?

Really, J-dog answers.


(The store manager actually suggested they submit it to Cake Wrecks. Really.)

I'll just give you a hint on this next one:

I don't yearn for facial hair of this relative width:

Get it?



Aw, come on, "pencil-thin mustache?"

[crickets exchange looks of disgust]

*It's a pencil*

Ok, fine. Moving on...

This next one's harder, so I'll give you a better hint:

It's an iPod Shuffle.

Did you get it?


Well, I told you it was hard.

In case you don't want to take MY word for it anymore, you can take the Wreckerators:

This is "Beer."

And this is a "Flipp Flopp Cake"

And this No, it can't be...


Mike, Johanna & Ellorie, Crystal C., Meta H., Julie T., Xiaomi Q., & Courtney B., J-dog thanks you. Now please send more Twix.


Don't Mansion It

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the haunted mansion. I am your host.

And....I like big BUTTS and I cannot lie,
No other specter can deny,
When a ghoul walks in...

Hm? Oh. (Ahem.) Sorry.

Our tour begins here, in this bowling alley.

As you can see, we have pins and needles to spare. (Muah-ha-haa! Puns killed me.)

Ah, but your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding - almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis:

Are these ghosts actually stretching?

Or have they been run over?

Also, what's the deal with this guy?

And consider this dismaying observation:

Strong spirits are a leading cause of gingivitis.

(Look it up.)

We have 999 happy haunts here, but there's room for a thousand.

Any volun...

David, I'm trying to spiel here. Do you mind?

"Is this real life?"

No, David, this is real death. Run along, now.

My apologies.

As I was saying, we find it delightfully unlivable here in this ghostly retreat. Every room has wall-to-wall creeps, and hot and cold running Chills!

The Chills are our resident track team.

Now, as they say, "look alive," and we'll conclude our little tour.

Not that alive.

Oh, and before you go, there's a little matter I forgot to mention:

BEWARE...of shop-lifting ghosts!

"QUICK! Mall security is coming!"

Sunny R., Ticara G., Kartrina R., Jill M., Janet, Annette D., Brady, Jenna A., H.M., & Heidi Y., your ghosts will haunt you until you return...all that stuff they took.
