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? ;)

Memorial Pride

If tomorrow all the cakes were gone
I'd posted on this blog
And I had to start again
With just this patriotic dog:

I’d thank my lucky stars,


to be livin' here today.


‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,

and they can’t take that awaaaaay.


And I’m proud to be an American,

where we're free to be wrecky!

And I wont forget the ones who died,

who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand UP,
next to you and defend her still today!


'Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this laaaand,


God bless the U-S-A!




Thanks to Holly F., Dara M., Michael H., Claire Marie, Carolann K., Erica B., Kelley B., Pam L., & Rachel P. for the reminder.


*For you pesky optimists suggesting that the USU cookie cake stands for something else: it was found at a big box store alongside other patriotic cakes two days before Memorial Day, 2011. So... yeah, no. -john (thoJ)


What a Mom Wants

Sunday is Mother's Day.

MY day.

The one day a year when that 27 hours of labor is officially recognized, and my son gets to make up for the fact that his first word was "car."

And his second was "cat."

"Mom" was third.

But I'm OK.


I don't want much, really. Maybe just some chocolate. Like a rich, dark chocolate cake. Mmmm. And maybe with a sweet sentiment written on it.


Nice gash.

But how 'bout something that doesn't remind me of my C-section?


I know, roses! Beautiful, fragrant, long stem...

...dead roses.


Did I mention it was TWENTY SEVEN hours of labor?


Ok, how about some jewelry? I saw some cute little necklaces over at Targe... second thought, I've changed my mind.

I want a vacation.


Maternal thanks to Rosie, Kathryn H., and Anony M. for helping me stay on my diet this Mother's Day.
