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? ;)

My Dad's Cake is More Insulting Than YOUR Dad's Cake

This Sunday is the day we tell Dad what he means to us - hopefully in a complimentary kind of way. You know, like this:

"Before that you were utter crap, of course, but I'm trying to focus on the positive here. Ice cream?"

The important thing is to always be honest. For example, if your dad is a beer-swilling couch potato, you might try this model:

See, since the sign says "World's Greatest Sports Fan", there's no need to find anything positive to say about his parenting skills whatsoever. Score! (And if you're wondering why this design is on a green brick background and has a giant banana on it... so am I.)

For this next one, I think Brian M. said it best:

"Of all the Dads out there, you are one of them."

It's usually a safe bet to go with a simple "Happy Father's Day".

Well, I did say "usually".
And at least they remembered the "h". Heheh.

Oh, and check this out: I got the same Wreck from two different people!

Ah, I love my Wreckporters. What other blog has evil henchpersons of such tried and true dedication, I ask you - eh? That's right, NONE of 'em.

Noelle K., Mary V., Brianne, and Alea J., if there was a "Blog Reader's Day", I'd totally feel bad for not getting you a cake on that day.

Who's Your "Dady"?

Most Dads get cards and cake on only two occasions each year: their birthdays and Father's Day. Since Father's Day is coming up soon, let's see how you Dads have been making out for your birthdays, eh?

Huh. Now, I hear you when you say "it's the thought that counts," Janet S., but I'm pretty sure that doesn't include afterthoughts. Particularly misspelled ones. Right, "Dady"?


Well, this one sure is pretty, which - as Elena N. knows - is always key when buying the old man a cake. But, "Daday"? Really? Who even pronounces it that way? (And before you ask: yes, this was supposed to read "Daddy".)

At least this next one *sounds* right:

"Deddie" - see? That works.

Wait a minute, though...something's not right here. What's with all the pink? And the polka-dotted mountains/slides/sleep mask?

What's that, Melissa K.? This was for Debbie, the breast cancer survivor?!?

Ah.

Well geez, that really doesn't belong in this post at all, then, does it? Heheh.

[tugging at collar] Ahem. So, moving on...

Yep, this too was supposed to say "Daddy". Very... creative. And that's a nice use of all-caps. When in doubt, scream it, I always say.

RIGHT, MICKI H.?!?

[wicked grin]

So, I think we've all learned some valuable lessons here today. First, stick with "Dad" on the cake, and you'll have no problems at all:

Nope, nooo problems at all.

(Yes, I see it, folks. See, I'm employing a clever bit of sarcasm here. Because I love sarcasm. Really.)

And secondly, when in doubt, SCREAM IT. (Tod & Cathy J., I must have that stitched on a pillow.)

Father's Day is this Sunday. Tired of getting Dad a boring old tie for the occasion? Then how about getting him a Carrot Jockey tie? Eh? No need to thank me; I'm just here to help.
