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? ;)

Yes, Let's!

Baffling inscription?
Atmospheric pollution?
"Rotisserie Chicken" label?
Excess punctuation?
Check, check, check, and check check.

Looks like we're covered, Heather K.!

You know, it's kind of a shame... the snowman himself is actually pretty cute. Maybe you could just scrape off all the rest of the crap.

I have been a fan for a while...This blog always gives me a good laugh while I am down. I saw the deli thought it was a chicken. HAHA!

I had to respond to the rotisserie chicken! I'm fairly certain this cake was sold at a Safeway (where I work :P), and we have ads for our chickens (which are delicious) on everything from the hummus in the deli, to the boxes of cookies in the bakery, to the plastic cups of watermelon in produce! And I'd bet money that the cookie-cake was decorated by one of the baggers - not the actual decorator!

OMG!!!! I realize that someone already pointed this out and that it happend like 3 months ago but it is a freaking advertisement for the store's chicken, they have it on all of their baked goods. I agree that its odd but I've seen more than one cake n this sit that had that sticker just not a close up shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lmao for those of you still not caught up.

1. The proper grammar would be more like Let It Snow.
2. Excess punctuation refers to the 3 periods before Let's and the 2 after Snow (I'll be nice and consider smow a stretch.)
3. Has no one noticed the snowman is standing in another larger snowman's poop?!

...Get's with the Pmogram People..:P love from Allie

p.s. yeah they have those labels here too, just badly placed advertising! lol

Now I'm wondering if any of the store's chickens are labled as cakes, and if they too are attempting to "smow".

WV" "bridablue" - how a bride feels when she first sees her "designer" (wrecked) wedding cake.

I personally like the intestines at the bottom of the cake.

OMG, I saw the word "Chicken" on the label and I swear for a second I thought it was a CHICKEN CAKE.
