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? ;)

See, Alanis, THIS Is Ironic

It's like "celabrate"
On your literacy day:

 

It's a "great job"

On a depressing cake.

 

It's the good advice

That you just didn't take couldn't spell!

 

And who would have thought?

 

It figures!

In The Daze of "Your"

It's National Grammar Day, everyone! A day when we, the grammar police, can correct our friends' Facebook updates, argue over the Oxford comma, and let our irritated snorts of disdain echo from the rooftops!

So today, I thought it might be fun to see how many misspellings and misuses of the word "your" I can show you before your head literally explodes.*

*Yes, literally. I once saw it happen during an argument over the word "alright."

 

BEGIN!

Oooh, starting with a classic.

 

This one always smarts.
Or should I say, "dumbs?"
[self-righteous chuckle]

 

Now we're coming to the really dangerous, head-exploding stuff:

Ouch.

 

...the pain...

 

[clutching head and rolling on floor]

 

STOP!!! I can't take any more!!

 

Quick, someone show me an adorable misuse of an ordinal number!

Awww, look. It says, "Happy tooth birthday Lily!"

Crisis averted.
(Though technically, it's still missing a comma....)

 

Thanks to Toby H., Katy J., Trevor N., Anony M., Laura B., Anony 2, & Jennifer A. for helping us all get our grammar geek on.
