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 World's Cutest Carrot Jockey

John and I are cooped up in a hotel room in Toronto right now, so odds are we won't get to see many cute trick-or-treaters tonight. Fortunately, Becca B. sent us something to make up for it, though: The World's Cutest Carrot Jockey.




Thanks for the treat, Becca B. and Jockey Dan!

I just take the dog for a walk during trick-or-treating time so I can see all the cute costumes. We live in a small apartment building, so they pass us by. I buy candy just in case, but usually I have the whole box left over.

That is quite possibly the cutest thing I've seen all day. And that's saying something, I'm a nanny for a two year old.

Not to be picky, but Canada is a very large country. You would never say you were in a hotel in the US, you would name the city and/or state.

So glad Dan did make it on "Cake" and "Wrecks." He's an adorable carrot jockey! Thanks so much for sharing, Becca.

What province are you guys in? Is there a Cake Wrecks Canada tour I didn't catch?

I'm glad it made everyone smile! He makes me smile every day. I think I made his day by letting him ride, that boy would spend all day on that horse if I would let him.

Thanks for creating a costume that incorporates a helmet.17 years in the horse industry, you would be shocked at how few people ride with helmets.

November 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCat

Aww so adorable!!! I can't believe I missed that you were going to be in Toronto tonight :( I'm less than an hour away and can't make it :( Maybe another time you'll make it closer to Hamilton!
