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? ;)

Media Bullseye Interview

Hey Everyone!

Hard as this is to believe, I was asked recently to do another interview - this time a short n' sweet Five Questions segment over on Media Bullseye. Click here to check it out.

If you do read the interview, though, don't let my number of submissions stop you from sending in your own Wreck photos. Believe me, I can never have too many Wrecks, so keep 'em comin'! And thanks to all of you for helping to make Cake Wrecks such a success: you guys continue to amaze me with your general awesomeness.

Y'all wreck on now, y'hear?

This blog ALWAYS makes me laugh! I love it.
Keep up the good work Jen and I just ate a cupcake in your honor. :)

What I love about your site the best is the reliability. I can count on something good or maybe not so much every day to make me laugh. Thanks for being such a diligent blogger. Also I went past the display cakes at my local bakery thinking of you yesterday.

I ordered 2 cakes for my twins birthday today and I am so nervous to pick them up. I just think they are going to be terrible!! Keep em coming.

A friend shared your blog address with me a few weeks ago and I've been a daily reader ever since. Thanks for your work, I haven't laughed so hard in months.

I've "tagged" you as a blog I love, not sure if you have time or are interested in playing along with the blog-tag but I know I'd love to see other blogs you find funny. You can check out my blog for more details if you are interested.

I love that you mentioned SBJ as your favorite blog - as it will forever be mine also. I look forward to checking out the other two you mentioned.

You deserve the recognition. You are a awesome writer. I found you when I started my own RV'ing misadventures blog, and find myself asking how you'd tell the tale. You are constant inspiration, and one of the few that make me laugh out loud, even while reading alone.

Excellent blog! On your behalf, I’m petitioning to have cupcakes added to the “axis of evil” list.

No Pressue! LOL

You have me spying the bakery section for wrecks everytime I shop, lol! Of course, I never have my camera.

I'm happy for you, to be able to write for a living, and get instant feedback. YES!--we are reading your stuff, every day, and always looking forward to more. As someone else said above, thanks for being such a very reliable, regularly-updated source of rich, baked goofiness.

Kudos on getting the recognition you deserve! I love your blog too. Your hilarious writing really does this subject justice. What a great idea, and done so well. Your consistency is awesome. I read every day. Thanks for all the laughs.

September 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDori

Unlike so many of your other readers, I don't often read here every day, but I do try to read whatever you write. Which means that I save you up for days like today when I really need a laugh. I can almost always count on laughing until I cry ("Happy Birtday Roxy!!!")

You are totally awesome. I thank Dawn Meehan at Because I Said So for bringing your awesome blog to my attention. You are an excellent writer and deserve all the success it may bring you.

Also, thank you for wrecktifying the issue of the cupcake cake. I'm with you on that one.
