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? ;)

English Done Good!

When I first saw that today is English Language Day, my first thought was, "Huh. Do we really need a day for that?"

Then I saw this cake congratulating a team on a "Tennifer Seasons."

(Is there a translator in the house?)

So yes, past Jen from 10 minutes ago, apparently we DO need an English Language Day.

 

After all, it's one thing to be able to write in English, but another thing entirely to understand it.

Le sigh.

Happy English Language day, ya filthy logophiles. May your many and varied intercourses be ever enlightening.

 

And thanks to Christy C., Ken, Alan & Jennifer, Libby S., Kate H., Lina E., & Leigh S. for going over the top.

Painfully Honest Cakes

Remember, kids, if you can't say anything nice...

...say it with cake.

 

Today is National Honesty Day, but before you go dropping those truth bombs, let's take a look at some ways you can be completely honest but still somewhat polite:

And my personal favorite:

Only works with Angelas, though.

I just realized if you read those three together, you get a short poem:

"You are tolerable.
You are slightly above average.
You are Angela."

I like it.

 

If you can be a little more effusive, there's also this option for a completely honest compliment:

"And hey, I mean that."

 

But let's be honest: 99% of the people you know are total jerkfaces, and the only reason we say nice things on their cakes is because it's their birthday and we want cake.

So here's a compromise: start with "happy birthday," and then throw in a little truth:

Boom.

 

See, the exclamation mark makes it chipper!

 

The misspelling will confuse everyone long enough for us to make a run for it.

 

If you'd rather avoid all that conflict, though, then how about a general statement that everyone can agree on?

TRUTH.

 

Thanks to Nichelle O., Gina G., Kristin S., Kitzy C., Joan A., Sarah C., Liz M., Doug K., & Michele D. for spouting off.
