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? ;)

Hey, THEY Said It, Not Me

Calling all "Qualified" Cake "Decorators"!



Sure, it's a tough job, but someone's gotta poo it.


Though it does require you give a flying crap:


And be a regular person:

You know, no weirdos.


If that's you, then this job could be yours in a pinch!


A heaping pile o' fun!


Just remember to go with the flow:

But(t) not that much.

(Ooh, looks like the bride finally managed to get... a turd in edgewise.)


And thanks also to Anneke D., Patricia S., Amy K., Firas, Gail W., Cheyenne B., & Britani O. for passing on... the excitement.

How (Not) To Practice Proper Etiquette With Cake

It's National Etiquette Week, a time of reflection on how we, too, can be more etiquettey.

So let's start with our cakes, shall we? I mean, this is a cake blog, you like looking at cakes... it just all kinda works.



1) Don't talk about poo.


2) Or have edible icing poo.


3) Or have pictures of Pooh on poo.

Seriously, you people are starting to worry me.


4) Don't talk about money


5) Or the birthday girl's recent weight gain.



And finally, and most importantly:

6) Don't go into the kitchen at your friend's party and cut yourself a slice of cake before they do the whole candles-and-song thing, like this guy:

Not cool, man. NOT COOL.


Thanks to Rachel B., Alison T., Jerri C., Gomez, Jessica S., Diana K., Anony M., & Nathan M. for making us all better etiquetters. Go forth and etiquette good, peeps!
