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? ;)

Gee, thanks, "kids".

I'm not really sure what the "20th" denotes: 20 years of being a "dad"? 20 "children"? Or maybe the cake is for the 20th "dad" to come along? Eh?

Regardless, any cake decorator who thinks the title Dad deserves quotation marks probably needs therapy. Or an English lesson. One of those two, anyway.

"Chair legs"? How about... 12 oz dark brown glass bottles? (Note the nearby cocktail napkin.) And I think silvery-gray is a more common color for camera lanyards than it is for shoelaces.

...maybe it's the 20th "cake."

It could have been the 20th birthday since "Dad" married they're mom.

Maybe it's not thanks for being our "dad", but on the phone: "I'd like it to say thanks for being our dad, in quotes". So the wreckerator took that as just the word dad in quotes, not as "thanks for being our dad!" I don't know, just an idea.

You know, its possible that the "Dad" is a just a guardian for those kids. He has not married to their mother nor has he adopted them, but he acts just like a dad. The kids probably asked for those quotation marks.

I think (I could be wrong here) That it was the 20th time they thanked their "Dad". No?
