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? ;)

Win With Civility

Did you know August is National 'Win with Civility' Month? It's true; the internets told me so.

And since we could all use a reminder from time to time that "polite is always right," I've prepared a few handy tips.

Civility Tip #1 - Always precede a negative comment with a positive one:

 

Civility Tip #2 - Practice an attitude of gratitude:

And maybe your spelling.

 

Civility Tip #3 - Instead of rudely pointing out the birthday girl's faults, try focusing on her accomplishments:

 

Or, if s/he has no accomplishments to speak of, then try complimenting a physical feature.

There! See how easy it is to be polite?

 

Now, you try!

Ok, well, that's not so much a compliment as it is a reminder of old age - which is never polite.

 

Why not try opening up, instead? You know, tell her how you really feel?

Um.
Ok.
Well, while I applaud your honesty, that's...not very positive.

 

Ok, new tactic: Is there anything you can congratulate her on? Something worth complimenting?

Ah, much better.

So remember, kids: polite is always right, and successfully kicking narcotics calls for frosted cheesecake.

Don't ask me why; it just does.

 

Thanks to Wreckporters Whitney M., Birdy, Susan K., Heather R., Andrea F., Gina G., & Janet S., who, for the record, have never had frosted cheesecake.

Cheap Cheat Sheets

Ah, where WOULD we be without those helpful hints from our friendly wreckerators?

"WHAT IN HOLY...oh. It says, 'Meow!'

"So it must be something that can imitate a cat."

 

Sometimes the hints are fairly subtle:

Pssst. You misspelled "Poopy."

 

While wiser wreckerators go for slightly more direct labeling:

Finally answering the question, "Can I get a what-what?"

 

Rainbow!

 

Um...strawberry!

 

Diploma?

 

Now you're just screwing with us.

 

And finally, my favorite, no doubt written after someone was asked just a few times too many:

 

Thanks to Sara A., Julia L., Stephanie L., Sadie P., Rose B., Anne B., Elizabeth S., & Erin F., who are all going, "OoooOOooh, NOW I see it!"
