United Wrecks of America

Gimmie a U! “U!” Gimmie an S! “S!” Gimmie a… nother U? Huh. Looks like sticking this cookie cake to the ceiling has addled some brains. After all, what red-blooded American could forget how to spell the good ol’ USA? I mean, besides these ones?   I feel like this one was getting close: The underli [...]

Happy unofficial first day of summer! Although the calendar states that the first official day isn’t until June 21st, I think most of us see Memorial Day weekend as the beginning of summer. To kick off the season, I’m sharing a plethora of my favorite summer recipes from the site. Summer typically means grilling, picnics, cook-out [...]

Ode To The Long Weekend

Ooooh, long weekend, baby! So, whaddaya figure: Grill up some hot dogs?   Hamburgers?   Or go straight for the mini pies? Mini-pie cupcakes, that is. The “cherries” are M&Ms! So clever, it makes my brain hurt a little.   Well, whether you’re spending this weekend catching some waves:   Taking a r [...]

Happy long weekend to you! It’s Memorial Day weekend which, I think, means that summer is finally upon us! Last year, we had our families over for a cookout over Memorial Day weekend and broke the news that I was pregnant… fast forward a year – Joseph is here and already 4 months old. It’s crazy how time flies! Tell me [...]

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.   Graduation cakes are still comin’ in hot and wrecky, as evidenced by this Facebook sub from Maggie: So. Many. Facepalms. Plus, note all the extra enthusiasm that ending period conveys. I mean, really, CONTAIN YOURSELF, BAKER.   Here’s a baker who CAN write “congrat [...]

Comb The Dessert!

Like so many brides, Robyn M. found the perfect cake for her wedding on Pinterest: Now, let’s be real, Robyn. That cake? THAT cake? There are like 4 bakers on the planet who can make that cake, with all its tiny, perfectly-pleated ruffles and its flawless ombré fade. Ok? Ok. Anyway, I’m guessing Robyin already figured that [...]

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread with Dip...

Thumbnail for 4553
A long, long time ago I made monkey bread for the first time and fell in love with that sweet, yeasted, cinnamon-sugar pull apart bread drenched in a sugar icing. Honestly, what’s not to like about that previous sentence?! I’ve been toying with the idea of a savory version for some time now, and after seeing these pepperoni pizza [...]

Seven Years of Wreckage

Seven years, wrecky minions. John and I have been doing this “silly cake blog” thing for SEVEN YEARS. No one is more surprised than me; I figured we’d have to get “real jobs” way before now. HI-FIVE, JOHN! Awww YEEEAH. Ahem. So. Lemme explain. No, no. There is too much. Lemme sum up:   YEAR 1: The Cake Tha [...]

Classic Pound Cake

Thumbnail for 4547
I have a definite affinity for rich and decadent desserts, but during the summer, I love anything that can serve as a vehicle for lots of fresh fruit and piles of whipped cream. Without a doubt, my favorite such vehicles are angel food cake and pound cake. I have a killer recipe for cream cheese pound cake, which I LOVE, but I wanted to get m [...]
