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? ;)

Oh What a Difference a Letter Can Bake

Sure, they're easy mistakes; anyone can make them. And really, you wouldn't think that one letter would matter all that much in the grand scheme of things, would you?

Well, until now.

I think I speak for young Matthew here when I say: if he gets birthday racks, his day will most definitely rock.

Dude, even if this cake made sense, it wouldn't make sense.

Wait. You mean you didn't intend to introduce your man to the exclamation point?

Alright, listen up, "A": It's just a jump to the left...

And "R", now you step to the rii-iii-iiight.

Tracy T., Deanna H., Sho M., & Myra M., let's do the Time "Wrap" again!

Manmeet is actually an Indian name. Just unfortunate capitalisation on the baker's part!

I was going to mention that too. I have a student whose name in Manmeet and she would probably love a pink cake.

that lsat cake made my day!

(I will leave the misspelling as is in honor of this post! Aren't the LSATs some kind of standardized test anyway? I'm sure that somewhere there is a cake commemorating them!)

so sad... the feminine little girl themes for dudes is as weird as everything else

with the last cake...perhaps it says "Fine Wrays Forever"?

Which, of course, doesn't make much more sense, unless it was for a guy or family named Wray, but the sun-ray connection, maybe???

Spelling mistakes and creepy smiley faces aside, I like the look of that first cake. A variety of fresh fruit on the top, and nuts on the side? Yummy. And a unique approach to cake decorating as well.

Also...Scratched "by" butt with your cake? What?

can I be credited as Tracy T. not Tracey T.? because one letter really does make a difference!

I like how the first cake has all those perky strawberries. Quite on point with the "rack" theme.

Can I request some RHPS Sunday Sweets? =D If you haven't had them already... wacky as RHPS can be, I bet none of them would be as strange as the happy little sunshine and flowers "Time Wrap Forever" cake. 0_o

The rest, uh...especially the 'butt' cake...I think I'll pass and just have some ice cream. Eeew.

What about National Boss's Day? Remember last year? "Please Don't Fire Us!"

Hehe! I love your blog!

Dear Candle-Sticker,
The butt is symmetrical.
Learn thou from the butt.

Now that first one is a serious Cake Wrack :D

I am thrilled to report that when I saw the "time wrap" cake I started singing "Time Wrap" in my head. [i]BEFORE[/i] I saw the comment. I am so happy that Jen obviously had the same reaction!

YAY! The Rocky Horror reference made my day. :D

Pic #1: Anything topped with fruit doesn't count as a cake anyway.

Weird survey on your site - it seems to have no interest at all in non-US residents. Does it not know that the internet is in fact the world-wide web?

October 17, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterros

I don't think Matthew is so lucky, after all. When I was a kid, "rack" was a term for a shot to the, uh, family jewels.

October 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBillyD

100 points for the Rocky Horror reference! :)

October 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKelsey

Man Meet! Hilarious. Trying to quieten hysterical laughter so don't wake my son. Cake Wrecks does it again.

BTW, glad all seems to be going better health wise, take it easy, life would be duller without you!

Rocky Horror Picture Show made me laugh out loud!!! I love it!!

October 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGina

There's a good post! Can you do a Rocky Horror wrecks or Sunday Sweets post?

October 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterblueiguana

Hey, sun, what are you doing? This is Transexual, land of night! You are a sun. You don't even fit!

October 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLydia Sirena

Oh, dear.

On the bright side, some 'Time Wrap' might stem the tide of mystery-leftover trauma on Fridge Cleaning Day.

This blog racks!

October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSexy Sadie

Loved the post!!
ManMeet is really funny if you see it that way ..
But it actually is an Indian name .. Manmeet

October 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

YES!!! Go RHPS! We all love you! "Oh deary me. I forgot to bring Mathew's racks with the cake. Darn."

Think that's supposed to be Manmeet (an Indian name) not Man Meet!!!!

March 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMe!

Your blog is cute :)
I have reached this post... after a marathon reading in 2 days :D
You might think am jobless... let my boss not hear that! :D

By the way... Manmeet is an Indian name, more precisely a Sikh name.

It means soulmate.
Man or 'mann' (emphasis on n) = soul or heart
Meet (the t is pronounced as a soft th) = mate

And yep... a single letter, unfortunately capitalized, gives the whole name a different twist.
