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? ;)

An Egg-centric Performance

So. Ye seek humor and frivolity. Follow.

[swinging about dramatically]

BUT!!

Follow ONLY if ye be readers of valor, for the path to LOLZ is guarded by creatures so foul, so cruel that no man yet has laughed at them... and lived!

"'Ewwo, guv'na."

 

BONES of full fifty men lie strewn about their lair!

Or "carrot pops." Whatever.

 

So, brave readers, if ye do doubt your courage, or your strength, come no further, for DEATH awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth.

Well, teeth, anyway.

 

You dare laugh? Foolish mortals, this is no ordinary rabbit!

That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

 

This one's got a vicious streak a mile wide; it's a killer!

And also on sale! HEYO!

 

And that one will snap your spine as soon as look at you!

Not to mention get you really sticky.

 

I'm warning you! They've got huge, sharp-- eh-- they can leap about-- um -- just look at those eyebrows!

"Hand over the Trix and nobody gets hurt."

 

Oh, it's just a harmless little bunny, is it? Piece of cake, eh? Well, don't say I didn't warn you!

"Who wants to nibble our pastrami ears?!"

*****

RUN AWAY!

 

Hey Eric C., Jennifer D., Katie C., Mackenzie S., Lisa B., Byron K., Renee M., & Maureen P., somebody fetch the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, stat.

Easy As Pi

Happy Pi Day, guys!

Yep, 3/14 is the day a bunch of nutty math nerds decided to celebrate the mathematical constant that is the ratio of any Euclidean circle's circumference to its diameter...

...mostly by doing stuff like this:

Mmmm. Pi pie.

And yes, the baker DID put the 5 on backwards so it looks like a 2. I'm sure s/he was just testing you, though.

What's that? You didn't IMMEDIATELY catch that?! Well, that just means you need to learn pi out to seven decimals, then!

And what better way to do so than with Cake Wrecks visual aids?

LET'S GO!!

 

Three...

Point...

(Thank you, uh thankyouverramuch.)

One...

(I know, I know; you thought that was number two, but no.)

[rim shot!]

Four...

(Yes, I know it's upside down. The question is, why didn't the baker?)

One...

[singing] "I'M lookin' at the NUMBER innn the mirra'! OW! I'M askin' it to MAKE a cha-hange!! HOOO YA! Sha-MOW! Uh-HUH!"

Ahem.

Where were we?

Let's see... 3.141...what's next?

Oh, right:

Five nine two...

No lie, you guys: I'm looking through your submissions for a number five, and I find this random cake someone found in a display case with the number 592 on it, and I check my pi cheat sheet, and the next three digits of pi actually ARE 592!! I mean, WHAT ARE THE ODDS? AND WHY AM I SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS?!

Don't answer that.

We all know why.


Ok, so. 3.141592...

Six!

(Yes, really. It's a six.)

So there you have it: you've learned pi to seven places with Cake Wrecks! Great job! Pocket protectors for everyone!


And for those of you whose day just won't be complete until you see some pie wrecks, a gift from John:

You're welcome.

 

Thanks to wreckporters Rachel W., Nasina G., Grahm, Maggie M., Gin D., Caroline C., Rebecca M., and Mike - and also to John for the most painful pun in the history of crockery. I knew I married that boy for a reason.
