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? ;)

With Apologies To All The Anns Out There

Bakers, I know today's topic is a toughie. Heck, after gathering all of these photos even *I* can't remember how to spell it. But that's why I'm here. To "help." And because going anywhere else requires pants.

Right. Here we go. Metaphorically, I mean. Just wipe that "pants" imagery from your mind. Also my use of the word "wipe" just now - that was an unfortunate stream of consciousness thing. Don't say "stream." Crap. Um... look, my number 1 priority here is that you know I DON'T PEE MY PANTS.

Phew! Glad I nipped that in the butt before it got weird.

Bud. I MEANT "BUD."

Great. Now how do I segue this back to anniversary cakes?

7 Handy Steps To Writing "Anniversary"

Eh, that works.

 

1. First and foremost, make sure you're spelling the right word.

This is not the right word.

 

2. Watch out for abbreviations.
Believe me, nobody likes sharing their anniversary with another woman.

Especially this "Ann" character, who really gets around.

 

 

3. Next, WE SPELL.

But not like this.

 

If you're feeling less than confident, here's a hint: the correct spelling has MORE than 7 letters:

 

...but less than 13:

 

And this is right out:

 

4. NO CHEATING.

Cheater.

 

Besides, cheating can lead to this situation:

Er, I meant the cake, but if you think about it, I suppose cheating *could* lead to 60 weddings. You know, if you're really committed... to the opposite of that.

I blame Ann.

 

5. If you are going to leave the word off, at least get the numbereth righteth:

1th, 2th, 3th times a lady...

 

6. And if you have the penmanship of a serial killer, maaaaybe rethink this particular career path:

Or at least stick to Halloween cakes.

And Boss's Day. Boss's Day works, too.

 

7. When all else fails...

Go with Batman.

 

Thanks to Dina M., Keith M., Robbie R., Anony M., Tori R., Nathan R., Vera L., Jennifer K., Sarah R., Corinna K., Z.C., & Adam M. for the reminder that your anniversary cake should always be itself, unless it can be Batman. Then it should be Batman.

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.
