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? ;)

Do the Math

There are 10 kinds of people in the world:

Those who understand binary...

...and those who think this is right:

(How do you pronounce that? Thirty fird? Thirty onerd?)

 

You know, I bet we could all use a little math review.

Don't worry, I'll start with an easy one:

Find X:

FOUND IT.

 

See? That wasn't hard. Let's try another!

 

What do you get when you add 2 and 5 together?

CORRECT!

 

Now, if A = butterfly

and B also = butterfly

then...

someone's getting fired.

 

It's all coming back to you, isn't it?

Here's a harder one:

Q: What's the Commutative Property of Addition?

A: If all you're doing is adding stuff, you can add it in any order.

 

Name a negative number.

Ah, good choice.

 

Word problem time!

If a train leaves Cleveland traveling at 60mph, and it looks like this:

How many hours would you have to run in the opposite direction to avoid certain doom?

 

And finally:

Can you convert the following into decimal?

Because someone really missed the point.

 

We did it!

I don't know about you guys, but I feel smarter already.

Turkey Cake BARES ALL!

It's that time of year again, everyone: International Nude Day!

Time to strip off those sequined hot pants and walk around the office the way the good Lord intended:

Flexing.

I ditched the scratchy old office chair from last time, btw. Now I sit on a big rubber exercise ball. I like to bounce.

*squicksquicksquick*

So, since I'm feeling extra manly, how 'bout we check out some MANLY cakes?!

*squick*

Hey, look! A fishing lure!

I hate fishing.

[Note to self: ask Jen to think of clever fly fishing puns]

 

Which reminds me...

I hate football, too.

[Also ask Jen for ball puns. Forward pass? Touchdown? Hmm...]

*squicksquicksquick*

 

Who's up for carrot cake?!

I really hate carrots.

*squicksquickSQUIRK*

[Note to self: buy more antibacterial wipes]

 

Here's a fun fact: Facebook almost banned us last week for a cake we posted three months ago. (I swear I'm not making this up.)

This is the cake someone reported:

It's a turkey.

A happy, attentive little turkey.

Anyhoo, apparently someone went back through three whole months of our FB photos before reaching that one and flagging it as "nudity." (I swear I am not making this up.)

So I'm guessing they missed last week's patriotic "rocket" cakes.

Heheheheheheh.

 

...
*squicksquicksquick*

 

So in conclusion, here's a dinosaur head:

Remember to specify "dinosaur nudity" when you report us.

 

Thanks to Melissa C., Brielle R., Jodee R., Lauren A., & Ginger W. for the dino MIGHT.
