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? ;)

Friday, Friday, Gotta Buy Stuff On Friday

I'm about to save you SO MUCH time and money today, wreckies.

Are you ready for this?

Here goes.

[ahem hem hem]

 

DON'T GO SHOPPING.


Please, no need to thank me. I'm just here to help.

 

But wait, there's more!

Since your children and/or family and/or friends might be expecting gifts this holiday season (selfish bums), here's another option:

GET THEM CAKE.

It's easy! For example, say your friend Bob likes computers, enormous mice, camo, and helicopters.

BAM!

It's the perfect Christmas present!

 

Stuffed animals are expensive, but Clifford here only looks mildly concerned that his chest has sprung a few leaks:

BAM!

Chanukah just got Chappier!

(I'm not sure that was a logical segue either, but just go with it, mmkay?)

 

Have a rocker in your life? Then this'll strike a chord:

BAM!

The Kwanzaa Kazoo has never looked hotter!

 

Fellas, I'm telling you now: a woman can never have too many pairs of shoes.

I'm also telling you these are supposed to be flip-flops.

Yes, really.

Now, I know what you're thinking:

"But, Genie," you're thinking, because this time you've mistaken me for a blue-skinned bottle slave with phenomenal cosmic powers, "You can't WEAR cake shoes!"

Oh yeah?

BAM.

Uh...

What the heel?

 

Thanks to Laux, Anony M., Jennifer R., Tara M., Hannah P., & Dorothy B., who thinks those shoes actually look pretty cheesy. Sounds Gouda 'nuff for me!

 

And here's an honest-to-goodness holiday shopping tip, folks:

Wreck the Halls is 232 pages of gut-busting, knee-slapping, and generally injurious wrecky hilarity - plus it's nearly all new content, is easy to wrap, and costs less than $9 right now on Amazon! Buy three and you'll even get free shipping - no camping out, elbow pads, or riot gear needed!

Spellbinding

You know what makes a date like 11/11/11 even MORE "magical"?

A cake shaped like a beautiful leather-bound book of spells, of course!

Er... hang on, I have the right incantation around here somewhere...

A-ha! Here it is!

"Expecto Vomitorium!"

 

I can see you're speechless.

I tend to have that effect on people.

 

And now, using only the powers of my mind, I will summon forth...

*poof!*

the groom's underwear!

***

Well, well, well.

I see they don't call him "The Texas Longhorn" for nuthin'. [wink]

 

Speaking of which, have you met my trusty familiar, the frog formerly known as "Prince?"

He's a naughty little thing, that frog; lately he's taken to robbing nunneries.

Try as I might, I just can't seem to get him out of the habit.

 

Now, I know what you're thinking: "my gosh, that was a fabulous pun."

Yes, yes it was.

However, you may also be thinking my froggy familiar looks more like an octopus.

Well, he's not.

In fact, every time I try to summon an octopus I just get one of these:

Yeah. The Spirit World thinks it's a real "komeedianne."

 

Thanks to wiz kids Maddison S., Pete & Erica, Kristen J, & Lisa H., who'd rather pretend they didn't see that.
