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? ;)

If you're online a lot you've probably run across the word "Spoopy." I kept seeing it on Twitter and Instagram, and finally - because I'm old - decided to google it.

Ladies and ghouls, it is with no small amount of pride that I present Google's official result/definition when you look up the word "spoopy."

Check us out, yo, influencing the virtual zeitgeist.


Anyboo, in that spirit (HEYO), I thought we'd take a look at another frightening Halloween phenomenon: the freaky "EEK!"

Your move, Tumblr. I await your hashtags.


Thanks to Mary T., Carmen N., & john (the hubby of me), who was ridiculously excited to spot his very own wreck last week. Yep, 8 years of running the wreckage, and we still have to look. Ha!

The Far Side of Cake, Vol. 12

As the bees closed in, Pooh and Tigger realized they'd made a horrible mistake.



"'Put a few leaves on it,' she said. 'It looks too plain,' she said. 'You've got to learn to fill the space,' she said! Well FINE."



Maurice was famous for being the only butterfly who could successfully do "the worm."

Which was handy, since he couldn't fly for sh*t.



There was a long, uncomfortable silence.

The Hello Kitties had, at last, run out of hellos.



When Ghosts Wish Each Other Happy Birthday:



Elmo looked around. Had anyone seen?
But no, the road was deserted.
Plus he was late for Abby's party, and had no time for paperwork or prying questions.

Whistling cheerfully, Elmo turned the wheel and drove on into the night.


Thanks to Cheryl N., Jodee R., Katie M., Lana R., Mary Jane, & Mary K. for keeping it far out.
