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 Apostrophe is Silent

(ATTN PARENTS: This post contains material somewhat "adult" in nature.)

Once upon a time there was a girl named Amber.

Amber decided that school was not for her. Fortunately, she had loving and supportive parents.

One day Amber was offered an exciting new job. To celebrate, she added an apostrophe to her name, thinking it would make her seem more sophisticated. Again, her parents were supportive.

Unfortunately, introducing herself as "Amber - the apostrophe is silent" did not yield the results Amber was hoping for. Still, she did make some new friends at work: Cassie the, and "Long Lips" Lisa.

Of course, every job has its hazards:

Which Lisa and Cassie were always there to commiserate with:

Then one day, after an unfortunate misunderstanding between the girls and a city health inspector looking for "clogged plumbing", disaster:

Amber said goodbye to her newfound - albeit diseased - friends, and despaired over finding another job to suit her rather unique skill set and wardrobe. Fortunately, her ever-supportive parents were way ahead of her:


Thanks to today illustrious Wreckporters Wendy E., Monique R., Alex H., Michele D., & Amber (no apostrophe) S., and Alexa B.

I'm trying so hard to dissect that pole dancing cake - marble cheesecake with a silly-putty pole dancer on a wind-chime tube, surrounded by piles of hummus topped with coffee beans and parsley? Well, I would love to have been in THAT pitch meeting.

The funny thing is, I've actually met a woman who named her child something like Shante' and when I saw her write it down I thought she was trying to write an accent over the e but she said no that she'd just written an apostrophe at the end of his name on the birth certificate and that she thought it was cool.

Thank you for the crying laugh. I read these when procrastinating because then I'm inspired.

My first thought was also about whether the 'audience' surrounding the pole dancer was a group of hummus lady-parts with staring eyes.

Also, let's never use the phrase "Herpes Cake" again. Ever.
