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? ;)

How (Not) To Practice Proper Etiquette With Cake

It's National Etiquette Week, a time of reflection on how we, too, can be more etiquettey.

So let's start with our cakes, shall we? I mean, this is a cake blog, you like looking at cakes... it just all kinda works.



1) Don't talk about poo.


2) Or have edible icing poo.


3) Or have pictures of Pooh on poo.

Seriously, you people are starting to worry me.


4) Don't talk about money


5) Or the birthday girl's recent weight gain.



And finally, and most importantly:

6) Don't go into the kitchen at your friend's party and cut yourself a slice of cake before they do the whole candles-and-song thing, like this guy:

Not cool, man. NOT COOL.


Thanks to Rachel B., Alison T., Jerri C., Gomez, Jessica S., Diana K., Anony M., & Nathan M. for making us all better etiquetters. Go forth and etiquette good, peeps!

"It's Pronounced Shi-THEAD"

Bakers! Halloween is this Saturday!



Now keep going!


Yeah! That's good shi... er... stuff!


Push 'em out, shove 'em out, waaaaaay out!

Phew! That was a hard one.


But don't stop now; really let those creative juices flow!

That's it!


I love the smell of pumpkin stem in the morning!


This is all SO APPETIZING!


Ok, bakers, FINAL PUSH. Really put your back into it!
Let it allll out!!



Welp, I guess that's one more Halloween in the can.

Good work, team.


Thanks to Kirsten F., Molly M., Lily Q., Loren B., Beth N., Clare L., Claire W., Jeremy B., & Jordan S. for the heady flush of victory.


And now, a moving moment for my fellow Potter heads:

"Oh you may not think I'm pretty,
but don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
a smarter hat than me."

- actual quote from book 1


I bet he places everyone in Hufflepoop.
