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 love labels. See, I titled this post 'Funny', and therefore it is, right? I think that's the theory behind this cake, anyway:

Maybe we should try that with all cakes. See, this next one could be "Lizard Crushed Under Petrified Easter Egg":

Poor guy. Those eyes just about popped out, didn't they?

"What Happens When You Ask For 'Happy Birthday Jaime' Around St. Patrick's Day":

And "Recycling Soggy Corn Pops*":

To quote

*Speaking of which, Corn Pops has the most insane website for a breakfast cereal I have ever seen. Has Kellogg's gone 'round the bend?

Okay, so I went to the Corn Pops website, and I agree with everyone- they must be on something. However, they discontinued Michael Phelps' contract because he was smoking pot. Where is the sense in that?

I miss Corn Pops, we don't seem to get them in the UK anymore. However, the website? What the fracking frack was that!?

CornPops is just the trippiest site ever. It doesn't look official at all. Who loves the hamsters?

I was going to say something about the cakes, but that completely fabulously insane Corn Pops site wiped it out of my brain. Flying pigs? Corn Pop bees?? I don't know, man. But I like it.

Ok, THAT is a site purely created by someone on acid.... but seriously, have you ever checked out the SPAM website?! Holy crap...

Seriously, that Corn Pops website has jumped the shark...or the squished lizard under a petrified egg...

My husband took a picture at the grocery store two weeks ago, but we didn't get it sent in before St. Patrick's Day. The bakery evidently thought anything could be made a St. Patrick's Day cake by adding a plastic pot of gold to the top--hence a St. Patrick's Day black forest cake, a St. Patrick's Day apple tart, etc. Bizarre.

I went to the website. What. The. Hell.

Comments from my son (4 yrs old):
First pic: That's a St. Patrick's Day cake!
Second pic: That's a St. Patrick's Day Turtle cake!

So atleast the point is coming across...

After seeing the Pops! website, I finally understand how so many of the cakes on cakewrecks came to be. Is it just me, or does anybody else think the same tokers made both?

Also, I feel like this comment submission form should be screenshotted and submitted to failblog. I would if I wasn't tired and in a lazzy mood. Can you guess what word I have to retype to prove I'm not a computer? It is "leption." A word that, according to the dictionary, doesn't exist.

So apparently the same tokers ALSO made the cakewrecks blog. LOL.
