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? ;)

When Hunter/Decorators Bake

Here we have a cake so testosterone-charged that I bet any female within a ten foot radius will spontaneously sprout a beard and crave flannel. No tinker-toy plastic deer or tractors for Robert - hoo no; this is a guy who eats danger for breakfas... er, I mean dessert. No sissy exclamation points after his name, either: "Robert" must always be pronounced with deadly determination. In fact, after this he's going shark-fishing: alone, in a rowboat, at night, and with only his trusty blade, lure, and flashlight to aid him. So you'd best cut him an extra big slice.

Thank you! Celeritas


Sweet Baby James

Thank you all so much for the outpouring of love, prayers, and sympathies in regards to sweet baby James. I knew I had great readers, but you all have just outdone yourselves in kindness. The amount of traffic on James' blog exploded on the day I posted his tribute, and the many comments you all left there have been a great source of comfort to his parents John and Abby and the rest of their family.

James' funeral was this afternoon (the video will be posted on his blog soon), and during the service his dad not only read one of the comments one of you posted, but also mentioned Cake Wrecks readers in general - that's how much of an impact you've had on this family. So, on behalf of them and myself, thank you.
