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? ;)

Hey Everybody, Do You Know What Time It Is?

If you guessed "time to learn the difference between an old-style telephone and a clock", then you are absolutely correct!

I would have also accepted "Time to ban CCCs" or "Time to train a wreckerator". Any other suggestions?

Michelle H., call me!

Oh hey, my cake got posted! (not "my" as in I made it, but "my" as in I took the picture.)

I send this to people via text message when I want them to call me.
Or tell me what time it is.

How about "time to throw a (for want of a better word) cake and its Wreckorator out of a large and preferably high window"?

Just found this blog... Needed something to keep my mind off the water rapidly rising up my driveway... Thanks so much for the CCC relief!! Time to fill some sandbags...

It took me a while to figure out what this was about--I saw a hideous design but never heard of a "jump drive"! Hilarious, loved the comments, but if the decorator was some little old lady from another country and was handed this--maybe she thought it was a joke for some geek. Makes sense to me! I never heard of someone dropping off a device like this at a bakery! I'm sure the person who said to bring in the device never gave instructions to the decorator.

I'm at an airport right now and I literally laughed hysterically when I saw this one! I was thinking how I use my cell phone as a clock, but I'd like one of these instead! Now everyone is staring at me...

I forced me to take time to review and review the image. At first, I don't understand it. But a self opinion of mine says that a telephone user should be alert of time. Of course it's a clock on the phone. Crazy funny.

At first I THOUGHT it was a phone, then, I saw the clock face.
