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? ;)

Heart Expressions

When it comes to matters of love, expressing ourselves can sometimes be difficult. How do you tell that special someone how you really feel? What words will convey the depth of your affection?

And how the heck do you spell "Valentine's Day", anyway?

Well, not like that.

Or that...

Well, screw it. Maybe we should just stick to the easy stuff. You know, like "I love you".

[sound of head hitting desk repeatedly]


Ok, fine. How about something a little different, like "Sweet Nothings"? Eh?

Hardy har har, Mr. Smarty-Pants decorator. Now write the rest of it.

You long-time readers already know of my penchant for puns, so obviously my tolerance of the whole "Bee Mine" and "I Love Ewe" thing is pretty high:


However, someone needs to tell these decorators that if you're going to engage in this kind of punnery, you might want to include the bee:


'Cuz otherwise you just look a bit like an idiot.

Still, not all mistakes go poorly. This one actually resulted in an unintentional compliment when Stephen's girlfriend bought it for him:

Heheheh. Obviously it would be far less flattering for a girl, though, so you guys be careful when ordering at the bakery this week.

Jennifer T., Christina H., Olivia, Hallie S., Alice T., Lauren P., Nicole B., & Stephen H.: I'll admit it: I wuv you all.

A Healthy Appetite

"Some fresh black pepper, sir? We find it accentuates the taste of the carrots quite nicely."

"Uh, really? Well, in that case, let 'er rip!"


Jody celebrated his "biethday" in Turkey, which explains the adorable inscription. As for the rest - I have no idea. Maybe the locals were trying to make a point about American eating habits? Is this the Turkish equivalent of those V8 commercials? Or - OR - is it possible there's some sugary Turkish treat that looks exactly like carrot sticks? (I'm holding out hope for that one.)

Ok, Patreesha, your mission is to eat some carrots with chocolate icing and tell us what it tastes like. Quicky, now! The rest of us NEED this information.
