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? ;)

What Can I Say, Except, "You're Welcome"?

Be honest, minions: am I taking this Moana obsession too far? The constant singing, the aggressive YOU'RE WELCOME-ing, the unrequited mooning over a cross-eyed rooster?

No?

OH GOOD.

Then check this out:

Brandy ordered this Moana cake for her 9-year old, and I think we can all agree it was a wise move. Not only because MOANA, but because it's a printed edible image. That means no guesswork! No drawing! No instructions to fowl up! (HEY HEY ROOSTER SHOUT-OUT)

And yet, as it turns out,

Every turn we take
Every trail we track
Every ordered cake
Every road leads back
to a place we know:

Specifically, the place where a baker insists this is exactly what you ordered and you should totally pay for it.

 

My thoughts exactly.

 

Thanks to Brandy L. for providing all the wreckage that's fit to print.

SPRING ME

It's the first day of Spring, minions, so forget the forecast, throw on some flip-flops, and break out the finger flowers!

AW YEAH FINGER FLOWERS.

(At least it beats a knuckle sandwich? Yes? No? Shall I show myself out?)

 

Yep, there's nothing like Spring flowers, with all their bountiful riots of color:

 

...and cheer:

 

...and color:

 

...and unintentional wangs:

Those are some flowers with serious... stamen-a.

(Pollination humor HEYOOOO.)

 

So whether you're currently freezing your daisy dukes off or cranking the A/C like a pansy, here's wishing you a very:

I think it's Dutch.

 

Thanks to Amy H., Heather B., Sara S., Mica, Ashley F., & Steven V. for putting the "zing" back in "Speinz." Or something. I dunno. Look, it's Monday. You're lucky I'm even HERE today.
