Thumbnail for 4428
I was perusing the Cake Wrecks Facebook page the other day (where every follower gets a free invisible puppy!!) when I came across a rather unusual request: Ahh, so you want to pop open the hood and take a gander inside the wrecks, is that it, Jennifer? Well, I’m glad you asked. BEHOLD!!   And BEHOLD!!   KEEP BE-HOLDING! & [...]

Mexican Rice

Thumbnail for 4424
I have long been a fan of Mexican food, dating back to my days of begging for tacos whenever my mom asked what I wanted for dinner. Nowadays when I go out for Mexican, I don’t default to tacos, but instead look for something new and different to try. Some of my favorites are different variations on fajitas, burritos and enchiladas; near [...]

At that point, I had never had a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie with the texture of a traditional cookie. I’ve made oodles of delicious gluten [...]

I Never Inhaled

This was ordered for a school competition called the Academic Decathlon: Or, as Wreckerators know it, “AcPec.” Now, I’d like to say that at least they spelled “capitalize” right, buuuut… they didn’t. *sigh*   The following is a dramatization. The Wreck, however, is very real. Bakery: “ [...]

Taco Dip

Thumbnail for 4416
When I was a kid, I was absolutely infatuated with tacos. If we were at the mall and stopping to eat at the food court, I always wanted to go to Taco Bell. If my mom asked me what I wanted for dinner, the answer was always tacos. I couldn’t get enough of that seasoned beef in a crunchy shell and topped with lettuce, cheese and taco sau [...]

How hard is it to write, “It’s a boy”? LET’S FIND OUT. Oooh, so close.   Less close.   No…   “Bay?” Really?   And yet they nailed “congratulations.”   [massaging temples] Two tries, both wrong.   [forehead on keyboard] Well, the “A” is back& [...]

Imani wanted this cake for her wedding, only with bright lime green flowers instead of pink:   She got this:   Yeeeah.   And Meredith asked for this design with little pumpkins instead of apples:   … but she got this:   Preach.   And finally, as a baker herself, Zoey decided to keep her wedding cake [...]

Thumbnail for 4396
[We continue to update the “Top 10″ series of posts with main dishes!] Man cannot live on bread dessert alone. As much as I love churning out cookies and sweet treats, I also need to ingest some real food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I tend to shy away from complicated or gourmet-style meals, leaning more towards simple comfort foods. For [...]
