One Upside to the Economic Downturn...

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Is that otherwise unengaged graphic designers have plenty of free time to make Cake Wrecks t-shirts.

Yep, yep, yep. Who says everyone's suffering "in this economy"? I'm making out like an extremely fashionable bandit over here! Check out what the infinitely talented Kate Citrin gifted me with this week:



Awesome, huh? And since I'm such a giver, I've arranged for these lovelies to be available to you commoner Wreckies as well. Just click on the photos to be taken to the appropriate Zazzle page. Oh, and be sure to give lots o' love to Kate, too; I'm sure she'll find working for your praise and virtual high-fives far more satisfying than those pedestrian money-making gigs.

very nice...my favorite of the cakewrecks shirts so far.

Brandy said...

Those are very classy!

Mary said...

I would absolutely be considered a "cake wrecks" baker. As hard as I try to make a beautiful cake, they always turn out a disaster! But I will not give up!

Harley Dee said...

Oh mah gosh, those are awesome!! I have to have one :D

Now those are awesome. Kudos to Kate for her very prodigious talent. I am most in awe at this moment in time. I bow to all official cake wrecks bakers for their awesome talents at wreaking carnage on cakes.



OK...I don't know what got into me. Maybe it's Athena's spirit influencing me...

Cai said...

i love that it says "love" with random quotations..teehee the topper on the "cake"

Morgan said...

You know what, you really do need a pro to get great results; and what great results these are!

I love those shirts! Can anyone tell me what the "Cake Wrecks" font is in the top shirt, please?

I just dig seeing (1) a ghost sock puppet (2) seriously rad hair and (3) a nice arm tattoo all in the same photo. This is like a Pulitzer contender, here.

Still reeling from this.

I dislike how you put that advertising right before your posts. I scroll past, but it's a real nuisance. If you want to advertise, then advertise, but leave your blog out of it. I would say that that is Cake Wrecks' only flaw.

Pam said...

I love them . If you make them an apron they're mine.

Dear A. Nony Mouse,

We here at Cake Wrecks make every effort to keep advertising to a minimum. As an example, we told the company that does our banner ads not to use any pop-up ads even though we will lose revenue because of it. And the normal ads on the page are as background as we can make them for now.

That said, the t-shirts are almost all user designed and have become part of the Cake Wrecks culture. They are not a big money maker but we have them up because people request them.

Lastly, let me say that I have never understood the problem people have with scrolling past a post they don't like. It takes no time, it takes little to no effort, and we have at least 5 full posts on every page so you don't even have to refresh the page to see more content.

So there it is. I've gone on to long already.

Where are the adorable ghost-shaped oven mitts from? I would love a pair!

Kelly said...

These are beautiful!

Kirby T. said...

I have that oven mitt!!! Gotta love Target...or that's where mine is from anyway.

kate said...

Hello all! Thank you SO much! It was fun to make these so that (fingers crossed) Jen can make some pocket change and keep blogging for us.

To answer some questions:

The font, King and Queen Font, can be found on dafont.com, it was designed by the very talented Brän at Fractal Eye.

The ghost oven mitts were from Target(R) around Halloween. All my home decorating is done around then.

Another note, the gratuitous quotes around "Love" were the always brilliant Jen's idea.

Again, thanks for the kudos!

Beth said...

Love the ghost mitts! too bad target isn't stocking them off season. Who says ghosts are only for halloween. :(

Michelle said...

The airbrushing shirt should come in bad tie dye.

E. R. K. said...

I second Pam on the apron comment. These would be so Fab on aprons!

John said...

I just did a google search of "site:cakewrecks.blogspot.com flotsam" and got more than 10 pages of results. Priceless. You rock.

vicki said...

my four year old's response? "I want to wear some cake!"
