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? ;)

Lulla-BUH-BYE

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,

 

Mama's gonna buy you a giant bird.

And if that bird decides to drown

 

Mama's gonna buy you a troop of clowns:

And if those clown refuse to kill,

 

Mama just hopes this bunny will:

And if that bunny eats your face,

 

Mama's got a pig to take its place:

And if that demon swine won't maim,

 

Mama's gonna love you just...

the...

...same.



Thanks to Sheila H., Amanda L., Shelley M., Jill F., Cerena C., & Katie M., who all agree it really should be a MURDER of clowns. Amirite?

Win With Civility

Did you know August is National 'Win with Civility' Month? It's true; the internets told me so.

And since we could all use a reminder from time to time that "polite is always right," I've prepared a few handy tips.

Civility Tip #1 - Always precede a negative comment with a positive one:

 

Civility Tip #2 - Practice an attitude of gratitude:

And maybe your spelling.

 

Civility Tip #3 - Instead of rudely pointing out the birthday girl's faults, try focusing on her accomplishments:

 

Or, if s/he has no accomplishments to speak of, then try complimenting a physical feature.

There! See how easy it is to be polite?

 

Now, you try!

Ok, well, that's not so much a compliment as it is a reminder of old age - which is never polite.

 

Why not try opening up, instead? You know, tell her how you really feel?

Um.
Ok.
Well, while I applaud your honesty, that's...not very positive.

 

Ok, new tactic: Is there anything you can congratulate her on? Something worth complimenting?

Ah, much better.

So remember, kids: polite is always right, and successfully kicking narcotics calls for frosted cheesecake.

Don't ask me why; it just does.

 

Thanks to Wreckporters Whitney M., Birdy, Susan K., Heather R., Andrea F., Gina G., & Janet S., who, for the record, have never had frosted cheesecake.
