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? ;)

Hot Lips

Warning: Mildly naughty content ahead. (Aw yeeeeeah.)

I dunno, call me old-fashioned ("You're old-fashioned!") but I still say Santa shouldn't have lips more plumpalicious than mine.

It's just not fair, is all I'm saying.

Of course, some Santa cakes can be quite entertaining - in an adult, full-of-hot-air, dolled-up kind of way. (Putting the "b" in "subtle," that's me!)

Yep, you could say this Santa is crying out for commentary. Commentary which I, a wide-eyed innocent whose parents read this blog, cannot possibly provide.

On the other side of the...coin...we have this:

Brown lips, chocolate chips - gee, who could ask for anything more?
(That was rhetorical. I really, really don't want to know.)

You know what they say! Once you go...

No, sorry, I can't do it. Provide your own commentary, you filthy, filthy readers, you.

Well, fortunately, I think that was the worst of the...


[biting lip] So...many....puns... Must...resist...

Nope, I give up. Ready?

Not to blow things out of proportion, but let's face it: this head cake really sucks!

[bowing to tumultuous applause] Thank you, thank you. Yes, it was quite a mouthful, but I'm glad I got it out of my system.

Alisa K., Kierstyn S., Miki C., Sarah H., and Chelsea & Claire, be sure to bookmark this post for Christmas day. After all, it's nice to liven up the usual awkward silences with family with a few extremely awkward stifled screams of laughter. [nodding seriously]

I just discovered cake wrecks...and may I just say, FUNNIEST thing I have ever read. I start pastry school in the fall, with hopes of becoming a bakery owner a la Ace of Cakes...Anyway, I've been making my way through all these entries, so sorry this is a little late. But your caption under the Santa that is shaped like...erm...A "heart", seemed like it should be a poem. So I turned it into one.

"Brown lips, chocolate chips; looks like a part below the hips.

I guess he hasn't been dropped on the floor...Gee, who could ask for more?"
