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? ;)

The Yuletide is Coming In

Now that it's almost Christmas, bakeries are working hard to make all their designs more "season-appropriate."

Which is why you can now find, for example, the army toys attacking giant poinsettias:

"Call in backup! We need more silly string!"

 

And flotsam-bedecked "Christmas guitars":

"Oh Oh Oh" is right.

 

And of course, that perennial holiday favorite:

The Puppy-Pecking Parasite of Pastries Past!

It's a deer tick.

Eh?

Oh, c'mon, quit groaning: that was freaking brilliant on my part.

 

Heather M., Melissa G., & Jessica L., do you suppose they used "sugar doe" to make it?

No More Rhymes Now, I Mean It!

This Sunday is National Haiku Poetry Day, so I thought I'd share a few of my illustrated favorites:

 

Soft blue and brown swirls
somehow incomplete without
a beheaded deer.

 

Soft evening breezes
Radioactive tampons
Lighting my undies

 

Just clowning around
What a way to be headed
Coulrophobia

 

She drives me crazy
Like no one else (ooh. ooh.)
Someone check the oil.


Waves of well wishes
A sea of celebration
Happy...Stan? You ok?


 

Thanks to Grace R., Maria A., Kristina K., Samantha T., & Fay K., who know that haikus are easy, but sometimes they don't make sense.
