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? ;)

National Teacher Apprication Day

Educators of the world, get those hankies out.

Because this...[dramatic pause]...is your story.

Yes, every year you need some good "louck" as you embark upon that harrowing journey:

Back "toschol."

 

Here you will continue on for an indeterminate amount of time.

"4" more...years?
Sure, let's go with that.

 

During this time, you will expand your students' cultural horizons:

Perhaps by "celabrating" the mythical continent of "Afraicia."

 

You will "suport" your prep times:

(While grading the staff room cakes in your spare time.)

 

And, of course, you will strive to instill a love of reading into your young charges:

Not to mention their "comunity."

 

Until one day, the unthinkably terrifying will occur.

Your students will turn 18.

 

Yes, you've ushered another generation into adulthood!

"Yu dib it!!!"

 

And your reward?

(One baker, two cakes, two different mistakes.)

 

Now you can join with your students' families in saying...

"Happy Gracturations!"

 

yAEh!

 

And if you're really lucky, one day a former student just might come back to visit, bearing cake:

A cake of "apprication."

 

Aaron R., Marissa S., Alisha G., Kelly D., Amy S., Kim B., Rebecca N., Kasey, Stacey W., Anony M., Rebekah, & Amy S., have you thanked a teacher today?

Comic Issues

Technically, bakeries have to get permission from the copyright holders to use certain logos in their cake designs. But really, who has the time or energy for that?

Besides, why use this...

 

...when it's essentially just a red "S" on a yellow triangle anyway?

Totally the same, AND free for anyone to use.

 

Come to think of it, you really don't even need that triangle; a yellow background still gets the idea across, right?

A "super" cake, for a, er, "great" man!

 

It's interesting to see the lengths bakeries will go to to avoid using a licensed Batman kit, too:

This one could fool just about any lawyer: a playing card and a friendly Halloween bat? Nope, no Batman stuff here!

 

Plus, this could be just your average creepy clown cake:

A very "serioust" clown, that is.

 

Here's my favorite, though:

"Now, Pat, we've got to make sure that 'Bat' and 'Man' are two separate words, okay? And obviously no bats."

"Nooo problem, boss. How do you feel about seagulls?"

 

Jessica T., Eddie, Jill M., Aileen M., & Maria, "super" job! Oh and happy Batman Day, everyone!
