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: New Year's Delusions

As we recover from our holiday revelry and look forward to 2014, it's time for that most dreaded of traditions: making our new year's resolutions.

Of course we all know what the first one will be, so let's get that out of the way first:

(Submitted by Rachel K-L and found here.)

We will eat nothing but healthy fruits and vegetables for, like, at least a month.


But of course eating better isn't enough! We also have to run!

And apparently not just during commercial breaks. Bah.


Maybe Yoga would be easier:

This reminds me of one of my favorite cat pictures. No, no, I won't spoil it; just go see.


Oh, and this year we will get organized. We will sort and purge and scrub until our homes and garages are begging for mercy:

And we're going to learn to knit. Or crochet.
Right after we learn the difference between knitting and crocheting.

And watch less TV!

No, you're right; that's just crazy talk.

Besides, we have to save SOMETHING for next year, right?
