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? ;)

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay... 

In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend.

I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.

 

Quick, Luke, use the 4rth!

(It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)

 

"It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced."

"...with cookies."

(Granted, there are worse ways to be silenced.)

 

If Han and Leia were really into puns:

 

"I nose."

 

"Luke, *I* am your Farther."

"It's kind of a long-distance thing? Like, did you get my postcards?"

 

"Do. Or do not. There is no try."

"...."

"Did not, oh no you did. DID NOT."

 

"They see me rollin'...

"THEY BB-HATIN'."

 

OK, Vader, big finale time! Show us those pearly whites!

Theeeere it is.

 

Thanks Rachel V., Kimberly, Cassondra R., Evelyn D., Amy E., Emily M., Heidi L., and Micaline P., you were our only hope.

Scout It Out

I was an honorary cub scout around age 6, because A) my brother was an actual cub scout, B) our mom was troop leader, and C) we didn't have a babysitter. My only clear memory of that time was making salt dough pretzels with the boys, though, which tasted terrible. The pretzels, I mean. I didn't taste the WHOA THIS GOT DIRTY FAST.

Er, my point is, I don't remember cake at any of our troop meetings, but maybe that was for the best:

 These are the extra tiny Cub Scouts. From the future.

 

Dangit, Michael, not again!

 

This month was the 107th birthday of the Boy Scouts, so naturally:

The only thing missing is U.

Or a bad Scottish accent. ("Ach! Me wee bairns!"*)

[*Sorry, that's from all the Star Trek books I read as a child. Scotty said it all the time, but I have no idea what it means. If it's something dirty, please accept my apologies/knowing looks & elbow jabs.]

 

And finally, bakers, why don't you give us the 411?

Or, sure, that works.

(SO CLOSE.)

 

Thanks to Colleen R., Miranda E., Robert W., & Amy H. for always being prepared... with their phone cameras.
