This Post is Brought to you by the Number 809

Friday, October 17, 2008

Why 809? Because that's the number of votes Cake Wrecks received over at the Blogger's Choice Awards. That's right, Wrecks fans, WE WON!!


Not only that, but your voting made CW win by a landslide: 300 votes more than second place! Of the 37 or so categories on BCA, I think I only saw 3 other winning blogs with more votes than Wrecks: most winners had between 200 and 500 votes. Wow. So thank you - all 809 of you - for your completely spontaneous support: I am just floored by your response, and very grateful.

Now, about your evil henchmen duties...

Congrats! Now don't get all crazy on us and think that you can become TOO important for us little people. KEEP THEM WRECKS A COMIN'

Shelli said...

Congratulations! It's certainly well-deserved. I look forward to Cake Wrecks every morning to start my day off with a laugh.

harmzie said...

Congratulations - well deserved.

Plus that Mom2mysixpack is a formidable foe. She made me pee my pants a couple of times, but just not as reliably as you.

:'-) <--- tears of laughter.

Clair said...

Contgratulation!

Are you going to have an *ahem* cake to celebrate?

"Congradumalations". I found your site yesterday via a friend's recommendation and I have shared it with all my work colleagues. I have achieved nothing at all today save for giggling over your pics. I am now, though, truly terrified. For I have a professional cake on order for my Dad's 60th and it is based on a trout. I think I may be in trouble...I will of course be in touch should the dreadful happen...

Kelly said...

Congrats!

Congratulations, Jen!

As always, thanks for the wreckporting. It makes my 8:00 class so much brighter every day, especially when I have to fake a cough to keep my laughter in. Which is every day.

Emily said...

Congrats! Your blog is one of the funniest things around!

Eileen said...

Huge congrats! I have long aspired to be a henchman- or henchwoman- or henchperson as the case may be.

Mandi said...

Awesome! (And I didn't even get to vote!)

Crazy Raven Productions said...

Congrats!!! It's funny... I read number 2 (Because I Said So) as well. Both are brilliant, but I have to say, you've left me gasping for oxygen more often. :)

Geo said...

Congratulations! Keep up the great work. Thanks for all the fun.

Renee said...

congrats!! well deserved.... while the others are funny, yours is more consistently so and the only one I visit daily for my morning laugh!

Christine Jane said...

I made my mom vote too...

MacTipper said...

This is the worst post yet. Very little humor, poor quality picture of a cake. I don't even get why it's "wrecktastic".

WORST POST EVER!!!!


(BTW, congrats! :D )

I didn't vote. There was voting? When? Where? Do you have to be a member of the academy to get a ballot? Am I just clueless? I would have voted for you, Wrecks. You're awesome.

I can't tell you how much your blog cheered me up, I've just had to share it with everyone!

Karla with a K said...

I'm waiting to see this on a wreck: "Conflatulations!"

As stated by everyone else, you deserve it! I'm so happy for you.

With all due respect, your second place competition has quite a following and is responsible for sending this reader (and I'm sure many more) your way. And boy am I glad she did. I pass you along to anyone who will listen. I'm so glad you won!

So, yea, where's the celebratory cake?

ps Also, thanks for the Jim Gaffigan connect. Love him, too.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! Or should I say "congradulshuns" or "kongrats" -- but then it would look too much like writing on the wrecks!

I love your blog - the wrecks are terrific, but your commentary is the BEST! Please never get bored with this stuff -- there are a lot of us who check out wrecks first thing in the morning at work! Thanks again! Stephanie Wolf

Etiquette Bitch said...

punxxi said...

you deserve at least a 1000 votes!

Stephanie said...

Congrats Jen! You totally deserve it. Your blog stands out among humor blogs because you are very adamant about not hurting the wreck-makers feelings, about not being MEAN for the sake of a good laugh.

Wreck on Jen! We can't get enough!

Anonymous said...

Congratwats Jen :)
Great blog, well-deserved win.

Izabell said...

congrats! i love your blogg and stop by all the time for a good laugh! your so funny and the cakes are hilarious!! i now walk by the bakery at our local stores and really notice the cakes there. my mom always made our cakes and I have made my daughters hey if its homemade it is allowed to be a wreck right:)they have turned out well so far but she is only 2:)
Someone did bake her a wreck though for her 1st bday. I wish I took a better pic of it was a barbie cake on top of a heart cake on top of a square cake with no supports!! The colors where brown with yellow crystal sugar crystals, purple with red so everything melted into each other and sank into each other! The kids refused to try it as did the adults! (she had about 60 guests and no one wanted to try it!!)
I had made a three tier cake for her bday so I had enough cake without that one was sad to set in on the cake table next to the one I worked so hard on but I had to display it because it was a gift but it was BAD!!!

Clair said...

Congratulations, definately well deserved! I love the awfulness every day but I love the sunday sweets too- restores my confidence in cake decorators!

Keep those wrecks coming

Liesl Kruger said...

In wanting to be completely fair in my voting, I decided to check out the top 3 leaders. In all honesty, cake wrecks was the only blog that I could read through all day long and still laugh. I don't even remember being able to conjur up even a teeny giggle when looking through the other two(no offense to the bloggers involved). It was a well-deserved, hands-down win and I look forward to voting again NEXT year!

asillylittlegirl said...

yea!

writtenwyrdd said...

Congratulations on the win.

Lynn said...

Congratulations! This is the ONLY blog I have ever enjoyed reading. It is the first thing I go to in the morning while sipping coffee! Keep up the awesome commentary!

Michele said...

Congrats you definitely deserve it! You crack me up every day and so do my fellow cake wrecks blog stalkers!

Meghan said...

Congratulations! Your blog makes my day!! Thank You!

JennyF said...

Congrats!! I was one of the 809 who voted...yes, I went through the rigorous process of creating a login to do so. But it was well worth, this blog is thoroughly entertaining!

Not sure what your long-term goals are, but you are doing a great job of honing your writing skills via this blog. Hopefully some day I'll be reading a hilarious book of yours.

Congratawat!! "You" have a grate "bLog"! The misspelinngs alwayz make me "lauGH".
Put spriNkles on it.


I am another one who came over from Dawn at Because I Said So, and I read you both faithfully every day. It's a one-two punch of light-hearted, clean (mostly) humor!

Valarie said...

[insert misspelled congratulations joke here]. It should have been an even 810, (or plus whatever running number of people who were not able to vote + me) because I registered but was never able to get it to work. Im glad so many others were!
Your blog truly is something I check every morning first thing. It's a great way to start the day.

CC said...
