What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Here's another stencil malfunction, but one only you Australian readers will appreciate:

To be fair, I hear it's easy to get turned around Down Under.

(Via this article, which gets major props for calling it the "cake that flipped a nation." Hee!)


Anyone else get the feeling bakers are sick of drawing footballs?

No? Just me?


And finally,

I think this giraffe is trying to wink at us:

So why can't I stop screaming?


Thanks to Kara P., Jeff R., everyone in Australia who reads this blog, Melissa U., & Anony M. for proving that winking at strangers is always creepy, so stop it, winkers. JUST STOP.

Five dollar penalty!

Seriously? Try again.

Double Coverage:

Think anyone will notice?


and finally...

I think it's time to put all these bakers into Time Out.
