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? ;)

"I'm a little teapot,

short and stout.

Here is my handle

Erm. Yeeeaaahhh.

Heather L., do you take one lump or two?

Ohhhhh, that's not right.

Well, it's okay if it's short, as long as it's stout.

Hey, just a quick request. If you have an "adult rated" cake would you mind putting some sort of note at the top? My kids love to look at the cake wrecks and I'd hate to have to explain this to them! :) (Yes, I usually preview it, but sometimes they look over my shoulder.)

That is horrible!!! Wouldn't the decorator see what it looks like and scrap it or at least change the color!?

My husband and children (ages 8 and 9) just looked at the cake. I asked them what they saw . . . all three of them said, "It's a teapot." My children wanted to know what was wrong with it . . . I said, "nothing." My husband looked at me and asked, "Is there SUPPOSED to be something wrong with it?" I asked him if he saw anything else. He said, "Nooooooo . . . " I said, "It's pink. The spout." His eyes widened, "OI YO! OI NO!" My kids asked, "What? What is it?" We both replied in unison, "It's a teapot!"

Um... and somebody's going to have to cut off Mr Happy in the process of eating that cake.

I'm never going to look at that rhyme the same way again.

Bwahahahaha! That is a very good outlook!

October 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMandy

It's not the size of the spout; it's the steam in the kettle!

October 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBroken and Whole

Holy moly! That had to be intentional. So funny!

Omg, this made me laugh out loud! As a psychologist I think this site is better than Roscharch.

And to John: Good recovery!!

Nope. I got nothin'. Just *errr*

(kind of like a dial tone...which now that I think about it is becoming a bit old fashioned 0_o )

All it's missing is some "tea" drips. Ha!!!

October 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKim

There is NO WAY this was not done on purpose.

I'll have what she's having... :)

Good Lord! I roared with laughter at this, prompting my 6 year old daughter to say "what's the matter mummy?" Boy am I glad she thought it looks like a teapot and she doesn't have my tawdry mind!

Nice. I wonder if they took a good look at that before they put it out?

Sometimes a teapot is just a teapot.

hehe "Be Our Guest" has been stuck in my head for a couple days now and the line about "one lump or two" just made me giggle.
