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? ;)

Breaking News: Heeeere's Bobby!

Ok, all you guys who kept insisting the Popped-Eyes Sailor Blobs were actually Bob from Monsters-VS-Aliens, listen up.

Bob is blue.

Bob has one eye.

Bob...

Well, he looks like this:

"Yo homies! I'm bringing blobby back!"

This is the "official" Bob cake, made by Sugar Butter Flour and served at DreamWorks yesterday to celebrate the movie's release. Fortunately Jessica G.'s hubby works there, which is why we get to share in the gelatinous joy.

Speaking of gelatinous, though, wouldn't it have been awesome if they'd made him completely out of Jello? Sure, I'd rather eat cake, too, but Bompass & Parr (creators of the infamous burger-on-a-donut) have some nifty "Jelly" creations, some of which even glow in the dark:

Cool, huh? Plus, slap an eyeball on that sucker and you've got yourself a Bob!

Heck, now I'm inspired to go make some blue jello mounds with eyeballs. Then I'll bring them to the IMAX theater, and chuck 'em at the candy-wrapper-crinkling, seat-kicking, cell-phone-answering, talking-the-ENTIRE-TIME pests who sit behind me. "Who's 3D now, jerk-faces? Huh? HUH? SHWA-POW! Bob in the face!"

Hm, maybe John's right. Maybe I'm not ready for the movie theater again yet.

Oh, and before anyone gives me grief, this is just Cake News, mmkay? Not Wrecks; Cake News.

UPDATE: Just learned from SuperPunch that Bob also visited the DreamWork's campus "in the flesh," as it were. Check out pics here.

Sugar Butter Flour - is that not the same company that made the famous Swastika wedding cake. Wow, they sure get around. I can understand why you took the famous wedding cake off if you have a relationship with the company. Shame.
