Cake Wrecks Turns One!

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

I know you're still reeling from the heady celebration of my own birthday, but now we have another excuse to wreck some cakes, sing songs, and get sloshed on sprinkles:

Today is the one year anniversary of Cake Wrecks!

Let the rejoicing...[dramatic pause]...begin.

Yep, one year ago today I was thinking, "Hey, this might be a fun diversion for a few weeks. Thank goodness for the anonymity of the internet! No one will ever know."


Yeeeeaaahh.

Still, to all of you who have become faithful readers, loyal fans, and virtual friends*, thank you. You've helped make this the most exciting year of my life, and I am forever grateful.

And to you persnickety trolls who continue to inform me, in many and colorful ways, just how vast the suckage quotient of this blog is: May you someday start a blog and moderate your own trollish comments. (Harsh, yes, but it's got to be said.)

Also, a quick reminder: although the retail price of my book Cake Wrecks is $12.99, there are some fantastic discounts to be had if you pre-order it online now. It's currently available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Amazon.

Thanks, guys, and Wreck on!

- Jen

(*I mean that in a good way.)

Happy Anniversary Cake Wrecks!

did you look at the Amazon page? Evidently people who buy your book buy it with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, if thats not great company I don't know what is!

lois said...

I can't believe how many days a week I look at the clock and think, "Oh! It's 9:15! Cake Wrecks might be up!"

Some people might say I need a life. I say I need a laugh. Keep up the good work. Ignore the trolls. (Except those cute plastic ones with stick-up hair.)

Amy said...

Happy Birtday, Under Neat Dat
Cake Wrecks!

I'm going to order your book from my local bookseller...she's the best!

Jen-will you tour and do a book signing? If so, please visit the Book Cellar in Chicago -- a very cool wine bar/bookstore. The events are fab + I'd love to see you there! Sign my book!

Etiquette Bitch said...

ps- I'm with Lois -- nearly every day, if I'm online at 8:30, i find myself thinking, "Hmm, wonder if Cake Wrecks is up yet?"

kgirl said...

Happy Wreckiversary!

I just found you thru "you knit WHAT!?! 2".

I am now a fan for life!

trolls suck; go back under your bridge and bother the goats!

PS - word is "pulutte" - pollute, like the trolls do. this is a funny blog!

Jim Todd said...

Congratulations, Jen!

Erika said...

Happy Birthday, Blog!

I haven't been here from the beginning, but have been following along silently for months. Once, my mom came over and we read the whole blog, and laughed ourselves to asthma attacks. Awesome.

God, that firefighter cake...that was golden.

Emily said...

Good girl - love it and the cakes and the comments! Way to brighten the day!

Jennifer said...

I really enjoy your posts and check every day that I can. It's a great diversion and I love your sense of humor.

Congratulations!

leannwoo said...

I just can't imagine why anyone would say anything remotely trollish regarding this blog. Even as a former cake decorator I love it. I made my share of wrecks while learning. You got to have a sense of humor! Happy one year! :)

I really enjoy your blog - it's my daily dose of humor!

Jenn W said...

Seriously, you have trolls?? I discovered this blog a few days ago and almost gave myself an aneurysm laughing so hard and trying to suppress it in my office. I'm addicted and brings a smile everyday. Thanks for doing it!

Niki said...

Happy Birthday Cake Wrecks!!!

Tammi said...

Happy!! Anni! Versary!

Niki said...

Happy Birthday! Since it's your 1st, do you get a mini cake that you can eat all by your self, and smash it all over your face like other 1-year-olds get to do???

Guin said...

It happened several months ago when a friend sent me a link to a picture of a funny cake. Underneath that cake was even funnier commentary regarding the ridiculousness of pictured cake.
I hit add to favorites and I've been laughing ever since.
I swear it's like I'm reading my own words with the Trek, Stargate and Ghostbusters references sprinkled throughout your blog.
I've got six words to describe how I feel every time I click on my favorite link...
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.
Okay technically that's 2 words repeated over and over again, but I think you catch my drift.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CAKE WRECKS!!

Eb said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

underneath that

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY

Labyrinth Gal said...

YAY, you!!!

HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!

I only have one rule when reading your blog: don't be drinking "anything." (Superfluous quotation marks in your honour).

I wish you continued SUCCESS and all the BEST, :-) Hali

P.S. Blogtrolls are everywhere. I say, LET THEM EAT CAKE. Hahahaha

Annie-rie said...

Dear Jen,
I love Cake Wrecks and I am sure the book will be great. I clicked on the link to Amazon, and was puzzled by the "buy these books together" suggestion. It says that people who buy Cake Wrecks would also be interested in Pride and Prejudice Zombie Classic Edition!?!

Kristi said...

Happy Birthday! I just discovered you a few weeks ago. Yesterday I was in a bakery ordering a cake for a going away party but secretly hoping that they mess it up really bad so I can send you a picture...sick I know.

Elizabeth said...

It's like a blog journey...

Happy birthday, Cake Wrecks!!

smiles :) said...

yay for cake wrecks! that means that I've already been following this site for 1/2 of it's reign, woohoo! ;) I always know what page to click on to be immensely cheered up, thank you Jen! Keep on wreckin'! ;)

Happy! Birtday!!! I love your site, I'm not one for checking blogs daily. You are the exception. The last site I check each day (so I always end on a high). Thank you.

MaryBe said...

Happy Blogiversary!
My goal in life is to find a cake wreck worthy of being submitted! Lofty goal I know!

Meri said...

Thank you, Jen!
Under Neat that
Congrats on WON year!

Sheri said...

Happy Anniversary! Thanks for regularly cracking me up! :-)

Terry_Jim said...

Delightful blog.
Thanks for the fresh baked humor!

Sticky said...

Happy annibirthdayversary! I can't believe that I've been stumbling for years and only last month I came across your blog. I stayed up all night reading the entirety of your blog, snickering and convulsing as I looked and thought and then saw that you anticipated my thoughts and burst into hysterics at your comments. As an ex pastry chef, I can only hope that nothing I did ever turns up here. You make me laugh, you make me smile. You make my life better just by posting. Thank you so much.

Sara said...

Happy first birthday Cakewrecks! Hope there are many more. God knows there are many people like me out there who suck at cake making. Some of us don't make cakes because we know we suck, and others don't realise it and keep on baking their sucky goodness. But I'm sure at the end of the day they all taste the same :D

Julianne said...

Happy one year anniversary! :D

This blog is amazing, and I am so so glad that you started it :D

As a side note .. I kinda understand how some people can make horrible wrecks now!! I just started decorating cakes at Dairy Queen, where I work, and it's pretty hard! I haven't had any professional training, though - and I've only decorated them about three times so far - so I like to think of myself as exempt ;) haha.

P dot said...

You are one of the few people I love this much, but whom I've never met. I wish you would publish the mean wrecked comments w/ editing so we could enjoy them too along with the cake wrecks... oh well. Husband loves you too :) Happy Birthday!

Kayla W said...

Happy Blogiversary! I've been reading this blog since the first month of its inception, and I love it! Even out of town, I check it out.

Hippo Birdie and Two Ewes!

Lauren said...

Happy Birthday and0 I just wanted to tell you I LOVE this blog. Whenever I am having a bad day I know I can come to Cakewrecks and it will never fail to make me laugh my butt off. So thank you for being so awesome!

Anonymous said...

Love your blog. Thank you for taking the time. Happy Birthday!

Anne R. said...

I am a lurker who never ever comments, but I had to come out of the shadows today and just say I read your blog all the time and it's the guilty pleasure of my days! Thank you! Happy Anniversary.

I thought you might like to know that on Amazon people who buy your book also buy, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!"

I'm not sure what the connection is, but it's slightly creepy.

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday- I can count on Cake Wrecks to make me laugh until I cry...why? Hard to say. Is it the cakes, the commentary or a combination, but it keeps me sane at times!
