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? ;)

And Now, a Word From Your Thanksgiving Turkey Cakes

Well, it's officially Turkey Day. A day of food and fun for us, sure, but you know who gets the short end of the stick? Ok, well, mostly the turkeys - but turkey cakes, now, they're also bidding us a fond farewell today. Their time in the sun, as it were, is over. Here to comment are some Turkey Cakes. Guys, your thoughts?

"Turkey cakes? Turkey cakes?!? Dude, I'm the frickin' NBC mascot; don't you recognize a peacock when you see one?"

"Uh, I'm pretty sure I'm just an anthropomorphized version of the Statue of Liberty's crown, not a turkey. Sorry."

"Don't look at me! I'm just a cuter version of this guy:"

"Hey ho! Over here!"

"I'm a turkey cookie, does that count? Anyway, I'd just like to know why I have all these cranberries stuffed in my mouth. See y'all next year! Turkeys rule!! Woo-hoo!"

"Well I for one have a bone to pick with my decorator. Jen, would you kindly post some pictures of a turkey and a chicken here?

"Thank you. Ok, now, decorators: look at the heads of those birds. Which of them do I look like to you? Yeah, that's right: a CHICKEN. Is this any way to treat a self-respecting turkey cake? Is it?!?"

"Oh, quit your griping. At least you're not crammed into last year's Valentine cake tin."

"Yeah, or torn limb from limb. Are those my wings behind me? 'Cuz I think they're on fire."

"Well, bye everyone! [sniffle] See you next year!"

Well, everytime I scrolled down more my two year old brother would exclaim "It's a Turkey!" so i guess that says something.

Hilarious. I say these turkeys are disguising themselves as anything but a turkey to not be eaten.

My daughter, who is four, took one look at the second picture and said, "It looks like a chick inside a cornucopia with corn all around."

The cookie turkey keeps making me think of the skeleton koopas in the dungeon levels of Mario! The color, the posture, the slightly gaping mouth... Am I really the only one to make that association?

I'm not sure that the first one's problem is that he's the Peacock...I think that it's because his body looks like a giant...ummmm....fallic symbol. Yeah. That's the word I'm looking for! (Katie)

Forget CCC's, I declare war on cookie cakes! They are always hideous, without any exceptions.

Is it just me, or is the NBC mascot missing a cupcake?

The icing seems to be sliding off. . . .LIKE A WATERFALL!

Or is it deflating?
