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? ;)

Happy Falker Satherhood!

Ashley J. had two male coworkers each expecting a child, so the office decided to get them a cake. They wanted it to say, "Happy Fatherhood Shawn and Glenn".

Instead, they got this:

Like you, I'm sure, Ashley & the gang were just dying to know what the decorator thought he or she was writing, exactly. So, they decided to go find out. Yep, that's right: They grabbed a video camera (did I mention they work at the Fox television animation studio?) and strolled down the street to pay a little visit to the bakery in question.

Here's what happened next (the best bits are in the first 2 minutes):

"It's like a word journey" - hilarious. Oh, and Ashley writes "Please forgive the Tickle-Me-Elmo laughter coming from behind the camera...that's me."

Ashley, I think it's safe to say we all forgive you. It's just too bad the manager didn't have as much of a sense of humor as you guys did; after all, I think you and Rebner were extremely pleasant about it, all things considered. :)

Spelling Bee Hard

Welcome, everyone, to the 2014 Bakers' Spelling Bee!

Contestants, your first word is "Congratulations."

Let's begin.

I'm sorry, but that's incorrect.


So is that.


I'm afraid I can't read that, but it's definitely still wrong.





Did you seriously just start with an E?


Corgat? CORGAT??


Look, bakers, this isn't that hard; just sound it out! C'mon, we'll do it together: "CON-graaa..."

[bonking head on podium]


Ok, bakers, to save on time let's skip right to our lightning round. First one to correctly spell "Congratulations Graduates" wins!



I give up.



And look, we're out of time anyway! Well, thanks to those of you at home for tuning in, and to all our equally inept contestants, who've managed to set a new 2014 Speiiing Bee record!

[whispering off camera] Hang on, "Speiiing Bee"? Who wrote these cue cards?


Never mind.


Thanks to Sarah B., Katy B., Darcy, Michelle P., Rachel W., Shawn M., Ken & Jen, Jeffrey M., Yvette A., Susan H., & Stacy P. for spelling that out for us.
