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? ;)

Football Primer

It's that time of year again!

Time to brush up on our football terminology:


'Nuff said.



That's when someone drops the ball.


False Start:

Five dollar penalty!


Incomplete Pass:

Seriously? Try again.


Tight Ends:

...and the best way to see them.


Off Sides:


Double Coverage:

Think anyone will notice?


and finally...

Missed Point:

(Hey, waaaait...)

I think it's time to put all these bakers into Time Out.

Ahh, the first day of Spring! The air is crisp, the flowers are blooming, and the garden slugs are JUST peeking out from their hidey holes: our cakes.

Maybe we should go back to the flower thing.


After all, flowers make everything prettier, from weddings: anniversaries: birthdays:, um, chicken feet?

(I'm sure the baker would have labeled it a dead cactus, but no one can read her chicken scratch anyway.)


Hey, you know the only thing better than rosebuds on the first day of Spring?

A double feature of The Tell-Tale Heart.



And while we're talking flowers that look like body parts:



Here, I'll zoom in:


They're like tiny little fists of doom, preparing to flip us off with their tiny little chubby fingers.
Of doom.

For that matter, the whole cake is kind of a bad trip gone worse, am I right? Random fist flowers, poo nuggets, an abstract bow/bat being attacked by giant dots...

I feel perhaps I'm getting a little "off point."


So, in conclusion: Yay Spring. Until the bee sperm bumble tadpoles X-Wing Bees show up.


'Cuz that's a honey boo-boo if I ever saw one.


Thanks to Caroline L., Amanda D., Sarah M., Ferryn, Lizzy E., John W., Syd D. & May for putting an extra Spring in our step.
