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? ;)

Nah, These Won't Traumatize the Kids at ALL

These cakes are all quite nicely done. I'm sure that will be of some comfort to the kids when they're in therapy.

Sock-hop it to me, Audrey R.!

Yes, happy birthday, girls, from Headless Flo and her Tinker-Toy Poodle Skirt of Probable Misfortune. ("Doom" was taken.)

Now, who wants ice cream?

 

"No, no, Patrick, the dinosaur isn't trying to eat you. He's here to party!"

See? Look at that cute little party hat! It really bring out his razor sharp teeth, don't you think, Selah T.?

 

Speaking of teeth...

This looks like the aftermath of a fairy-tale massacre, or in other words, a-DOR-able! [sing-song voice] Say, Arloe S., is that middle pig coming or going?

 

[announcer voice] "Hey parents, are you tired of boring, peaceful birthday parties? Want to add a little more excitement back into the one-year celebration? Then ask for the Dead Elephant special!"

[Kids yelling] "Yay! Dead elephants!"

[announcer] "That's right, kids! Yes, these delectable globs of deceased pachyderms tell the world: this party is gonna be killer!

"Side effects may include screaming, crying, thumb-sucking, sweating, itchy palms, irritable bowel, and a life-long fear of blue animals. Not recommended for children with nervous constitutions or sensitive bladders. Dead elephants are not responsible for any damages - real or imagined - done to your children. Void where prohibited, all rights reserved."

You've got a killer eye there, Andrew C.

Bakers Celebrate National Punctuation Day?!

And now...

Punctuation Tips From Professional Bakers...

 

1) Always put punctuation at the end of a sentence. Unless you forget or think it looks better this way.

I like it.

 

2) Quotation marks are perfect for emphasizing you don't understand quotation marks.

"Good" job!

 

3) They can also help cover "mistakes!"

"That's my nickname for you. That I just made up."

 

4) A slash generally means "or," but hey, if it feels right...

 

5) Proper punctuation can convey a sense of enthusiasm, so choose wisely!!

Because everyone hates Jonathan.

 

6) No one really understands how apostrophes work, so just sprinkle them in wherever.

 

7) When in doubt, go with a question mark. Inside parentheses.

It's not the punctuation Gotham needs.
It's the punctuation Gotham deserves.

 

And finally, remember:

8) Punctuation is important. Just put it anywhere.
