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? ;)

The Big Bang Theory

When it comes to cake fireworks, bakers like to start things off with a bang:

Although sometimes they're less about writing the word BANG and more about...um...

...exploding...hotdogs.

 

Or...candy canes.

 

Or...

...defying the laws of physics.

(Ouch.)

 

Hey, you know what every 4th of July needs?
Exploding balls, that's what.

(Double ouch.)

 

I'm pretty sure this baker only works for tips:

"Ready...aim...."

 

Figures. Just when I find some fireworks that almost sorta kinda LOOK like fireworks...

...I realize they're supposed to be surfboards.

Because that totally makes sense.

 

Well, I guess it's only fair that we go out with a big bang:

Just make sure you have it home by 11.

 

Pro Tip: icing elevations lasting more than four hours may require professional attention. Discontinue piping and call your baker if you experience dizziness, sudden sugar cravings, or the uncontrollable urge to make cupcake cakes.

Return of the Poo Wangs!

When you think about it, turkey cakes have a lot going against them. I mean, most of the time they either look like poo:

Or...this:

So...a little stiff.

 

However, sometimes, if you're reeeally lucky, they look like both:

And the turkey poo-wang is born!

 

Now sit back, relax, and cue the immature, mind-in-the-gutter giggling!

*giggle*

 

*giggle giggle*

 

Heads up; this drumstick's a real handful:

*giggle snort*

 

And finally, these "cake slices" are looking a bit testy, if you ask me:

But maybe they're just a little cold.
