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? ;)

Celebrate Deflategate With More Ball Jokes!

I don't know if you've noticed, but there's been a lot of talk about balls lately.

Who handled the balls, how they handled the balls, the balls' temperature while they were being handled, and most importantly, is "prolate spheroid" supposed to sound like "prolapsed sphincter," or is that just another Freudian sports thing?

Which reminds me:

Cupcake?

 

Now, I may not be much of a sports fan, but I will NEVER turn my back on a current events story that lets me make lots of ball jokes.

'Cuz that'd be just nutty.

So in the spirit of ethical journalism, allow me to present:

8 Kinds Of Balls Worse Than Tom Brady's:*

[*I haven't actually read any of the articles on Deflategate, so I could be wrong on this.
There could be more than 8.]

 

Swollen Balls:

 

Lumpy Balls:

 

Poopy Balls:

 

Wrinkly Balls:

 

Steamrolled Balls:

 

Missing Balls:


 

Bieber Balls:

(Hey, anyone who's seen the Bieb's new CK ad already knows where all the extra ball inflation went, am I right?)

 

And perhaps worst of all...

Schweddy Balls:

Eww.

 

Thanks to Michelle Y., Nino F., Allison A., Cara W., Amber A., Julia K., Kathleen D., Jen S., Britt, Laura C., Diane B., and Alec Ball-dwin for sharing his irresistible Schweddy Balls.

Jurassic Sweets

When I was little, I read The Enormous Egg, a book about a chicken that laid a triceratops egg, and all the adventures the dinosaur had with its kid.

(By The Cake Geek)

I've secretly wanted a dinosaur ever since.

 

Mind you, not one of the ferocious ones that will eat your neighbors.

(By Vina of Mionette Cakes)

Although he's actually a real cupcake...
Sort of.

 

Still, it would probably be a good idea to stick with an herbivore.

(By Sweet Love Cake Couture)

Plus, I'd never have to trim the bushes again!

 

Yup, I want a sweet dinosaur.

One who stops to smell the flowers...

(By Experimental Cakes)

...before she eats them.

 

One who likes to gather mushrooms for dinner:

One who waves when I come home:

(By Cakes Decor member Laura e Virna)

 

...and one who likes to play fetch!

(By Sweet As Sugar Cakes)

(Although maybe we should stick with sticks after this. o.0)

 

Hmmm, maybe my dino will be tall enough to help me reach those high places...

(By Sugarland)

(Don't worry. He assures me he's a vegetarian.)

 

I'm sure my dino will have lots of friends.

(By Karen Dodenbier of Dutch Cakes)

 

And we'll go on fun adventures!

(By Zeph's Cakes)

 

I'll just have to keep an eye on Betty while we're out:

(By Michelle Sugar Art)

Sweet kid, but she's a real dodo.
(No, really!)

Yup, I want a sweet dinosaur, but I know I can't really have one.
Except in cake.
And I guess that's Sweet enough. For now. ;)
