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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Doctor Who Day...ish

Tomorrow is Doctor Who Day so of course we had to post some amazing Doctor Who Sweets today. Sadly, we're at a convention so we ran out of time and couldn't write our usual commentary. Sorry about that. Please enjoy today's cakes and imagine we're saying something witty and/or profound. -john (the hubby of Jen)

"Vous aurez beau faire, vous n’anéantirez pas cet éternel reste du cœur de l’homme, l’amour."

Try as you will, you cannot annihilate that eternal relic of the human heart, love.

"C'est intolérable, c'est impossible, que, de tant de mort, tant de sacrifice et de ruine, tant d'héroïsme une meilleure humanité ne puisse s'élever."

It is not tolerable, it is not possible, that from so much death, so much sacrifice and ruin, so much heroism, a greater and better humanity shall not emerge.
-Charles de Gaulle

"L’amour est l’emblème de l’éternité, il confond toute la notion de temps, efface toute la mémoire d’un commencement, toute la crainte d’une extrémité."

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.
-Madame de Staël

(By For The Love Of Cake)


"À vaillant coeur rien d'impossible."

For a valiant heart nothing is impossible.
-Jacques Coeur

(By Anna Elizabeth Cakes)


Soyons fermes, purs et fidèles; au bout de nos peines, il y a la plus grande gloire du monde, celle des hommes qui n'ont pas cédé."

Let us be firm, pure and faithful; at the end of our sorrow, there is the greatest glory of the world, that of the men who did not give in.
