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? ;)

The Yuletide is Coming In

Now that we're into December, bakeries are working hard to make their designs more "season-appropriate."

Which is why you can now find, for example, the army toys attacking giant poinsettias:

"Call in backup! We need more silly string!"

And flotsam-bedecked "Christmas guitars":

"Oh Oh Oh" is right.

And of course, that perennial holiday favorite:

The Puppy-Pecking Parasite of Pastries Past!

It's a deer tick.


Oh, c'mon, quit groaning: that was freaking brilliant on my part.

Heather M., Melissa G., & Jessica L., do you suppose they used "sugar doe" to make it?

I saw the white monstrosity at W*lM*rt today while grocery shopping...

No deer on its back because it was cupcake sized.

Nothing says "Merry Christmas"(or...sorry... "Winter") like Poinsettias in poop being attacked by army tanks....

The whole Santa and military stuff obviously made me start singing Weird Al's "The Night Santa Went Crazy" and then...

I couldn't stop giggling at the "deer tick" thingy!! I <3 puns!

"Deer tick" freakin' rocked my socks off! Or, it would have if I'd been wearing socks at the time. I'm actually barefoot in bed and my roommate is giving me dirty looks for laughing really loudly at 12:45am.

They're all done in the best wrecky tradition, but the last one makes me go, "What?"

Sure, because tiny plastic deer always ride on the backs of small yappy dogs. Makes perfect sense. 0_o

Ahh! That dog's nose fell off! Somebody help!

That "Oh Oh Oh" reminds of a shopping bag that was on Jay Leno's headlines last year that also said "Oh Oh Oh".

That last bit was hilarious!!!! Deer tick!!! Too funny!!!!

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBlalock

I don't think that was a guitar. i think that was someone's Christmas agression coming out in the form of burning all things christmas in a giant lake of lava.
Just saying.

Oh and I loved the deer tick. It was brillant.

Can't....stop....laughing.....deer tick!....HYSTERICAL!

Sometimes I come here and smile at the comments. Other times I giggle. On many occasions I LOL and I am actually laughing out loud. Then there are the special times. The times that I laugh so hard I disturb my neighboring cubicles. I laugh so hard that tears start to form in the corners of my eyes and if I had something in my mouth, (like water...clean it up now, sheesh)I would need a new monitor. This was one of those times. Deer tick?? Hysterical!
Thank you, again, for making my stomach and face muscles hurt.

the 'deer tick' one looks like a white bantha. Y'know. Bantha. From Star Wars.
