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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Let's Talk Turkey

Debbie of Debbie Does Cakes was kind enough to share some Turkey love with us today. Check it out:

I love this guy. Not only is he gorgeously made, he's a comic gem. I mean, those bug-eyes are just crying out for a thought bubble, don't you think? So Debbie, for next time, here are some options for ya:

1) "Uh, guys? I was told this was more of a stag party..."
2) "Whoah, let's all just relax now, and how's about you put that knife down, eh?"
3) [on seeing the *other* turkey] "Mom?"

Ok, guys, your thoughts?

Personally I thought it looked a little wreck-y, but I think that's more the fault of turkeys themselves looking weird :P

Oh thank god a normal turkey! I thought I was going to be vegetarian this Thanksgiving. lol

He looks scorched to me. I'd like him better if the airbrushing didn't look overdone.
Maybe he came out of the oven thinking, "I need some Visine!"

"You told me that was a sauna!"

When I said I liked stuffing, I meant to eat!"

November 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterEric

Cute, but he still looks like a bloated deer tick!

This belongs on Suicide Food more than on Cake Wrecks...

November 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFrancois Tremblay

This one is borderline wrecky to me. The general black-and-brown bloatedness of it all is REALLY unappetizing. :/

November 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I totally mis-read that very first comment the first time. Let's just say, when I read it, "sitting" had an extra letter in it. I was like "of course it looks like he's 'sitting' - he's got poo underneath him!"

Then I re-read the comment. Oh, SITTING... lol

November 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMissy

He looks burnt! Cute, but cooked. The airbrushing is a bit dark, otherwise, it is amazing.

I'm sorry--I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog, but those jokes really aren't very funny.

Turkeys are some of the sweetest animals I've ever met. They sit on your lap and they love to chirp and be pet under their wings. They follow you around like dogs and respond to their names.

Frankly, I wouldn't wish the abuse they receive in farms on anybody.

November 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBecci

wow, what a cute turkey!! to be honest reminds me of that game cold turkey!

Nice! I love how cartoony it is!
...Can't think of any lines for him that aren't completely lame though!
