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? ;)

Less-Than-Superb Owl Wreckage

My Superb Owl Sweets for Super Bowl Sunday must have been super inspirational, because look what Ashley ordered for her daughter's baby shower!

D'awww.

Ashley ordered it from a different baker, though, which meant there were bound to be just a few slight differences.

Er...

Quick, look at the cake. Look at the cake!

AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAA!!

Whooo WEEE! Almost didn't make it, there.

 

Thanks to Ashley G. for reminding us that wreckage can be a real hoot.

Chasing Shadows, Deja Vu The Third Again The 2nd

[alarm clock clicking to 6:00 AM]

[Sonny & Cher caterwauling to I Got You, Babe]

 

Ok, Campers, rise and shine! 'Cuz it's Groundhog Day!

Or, as Brenda here knows it:

"Groad Hogs Day"

 

Today is the day that we celebrate the.. day...by having this cheeky little fella:

aka "the guy with the crappy back end":

 

"Did I do that?"


...drive around town with Bill Murray looking for a weather forecaster who has no shadow. Which I think makes the weather forecaster a vampire.

 Ah, American holidays.

 

Today is also the day when we find out if winter will end soon or not.

 Hm...

Yeah. Good luck with that, every-state-but-Florida.

 

So, unless shadowless weather forecasters are run over by rodent and celebrity driven automobiles, I'd say most of you are due to see a lot more of this:

"Squashed octopodes?"

Er, no. I mean this:

"Blue crabs?"

No, no, no!

THIS:

[crickets chirping]

Oh, never mind.

Happy Grounn Dhog Day, y'all.

 

Thanks to Brenda M., M.Z., Melissa B., Saundra, Karen C., Jamie, & Kevin H., who would like to remind you to never drive angry. Especially with a quadruped

See you tomorrow, campers!
