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? ;)

Sorry about that. On Wednesdays, we usually put up a Wrecky Replay from 4 or 5 years ago. We do this for two reasons:

A. We have had like 3,000 posts and most people haven't actually read that far back. So we put up some of our favorites that 90% of our readership probably hasn't read. 

B. Jen gets a break. Coming up with original content every week is hard so she gets Wednesday and Saturday off.

And there it is. If it really bothers you, just skip Wednesdays. But remember, it's just cake.
