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? ;)

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."



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:



...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....)

Unusual Names Day - Now With More Porn!

It may be "Unusual Names Day" to you, but for me? IT'S CHRISTMAS.

And here are some of the names on my list:



Ellen & Philip:



Try not to call your friend Georgia "Gorgia" from now on. JUST TRY.




Way to OWN that line spacing, baker.


Sophie & Reilly:

Oh, the irony. It's a two-fer!



Is this a real name? Please let this be a real name. If only so I can imagine someone saying, "Well, I should head over to the preschool to pick up my Porn."

Or, "Would you ask the babysitter to watch Porn for me?"

Or, "Hey, Mom, I posted pictures of Porn on your Facebook page!"

Or, "Thanks to Porn, I haven't slept in a week and my house is full of stinky diapers."

[gigglesnort] Yep, it's official: someone needs to at least name their dog/cat Porn, STAT.


Um, so I had more cakes to post, but I seem to have completely derailed myself with the Porn thing.
(Bet all you cubicle workers know what I mean, EH? Heyoooo!)

So here, let's just go out with a bang:
(Or did we do that already?? [Ok, Ok, I'll stop.])

I guess the lawyers insisted.

(And I can't even tell you what they renamed Piglet.)


Thanks to Andi V., Amadie H., Bryar, Jennifer A., Mark B., Rich G., Holly S., & Rachel F. for helping make today's post especially classy. (POOP AND PORN 4EVA!!!)
