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? ;)

Dad's Birthday Presents

Father's Day is this weekend, so today I thought we'd celebrate the most important thing our dads ever gave us:



Yep, nothing livened up our childhoods quite like Dad's special birthday balloons, am I right?

And, sure, they weren't always perfect. Sometimes they were a bit small:

Or a bit big:

Or even shaped a bit wonky:

Sometimes they'd get lost on their way to the party:

Or they weren't durable enough to last once they got there:


Sometimes dad's balloons didn't seem to know if they were coming or going!

But the important thing to remember is that, in the end, dads' balloons always got the job done.

Score three for Dad!



Thanks to Kathleen, Jess, Jamie, Pontmarie, Pat S., Denise C., Kevin C., & Julie C. for the beautiful "balloons."


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

It worked; otherwise, there would BE no birthdays.....=^~.-^=

One thing about that last one, since it would be triplets, you won't hear Vezzini saying, "Inconceivable"!

You know, I don't want to know how they got condoms to ooze like they did on that "durable" cake.

And now, Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.
I can still recall old Mister Barnslow getting out every morning and nailing a fresh load of tadpoles to the old board of his. Then he'd spin it round and round, like a wheel of fortune, and no matter where it stopped he'd yell out, "Tadpoles! Tadpoles is a winner!" We all thought he was crazy. But then we had some growing up to do.

I'm sure that those "Happy 75th..." balloons being Viagra-blue is purely coincidence.

Run for it, Paul! The spermaloon sharks are circling!

Lol oh my gosh I guess no wreckerator has actually seen a balloon. I don't even want to know what they have seen to make them make balloons like that. Too scary to think on lol.

I bet some of these bakeries are really seedy places.
