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? ;)

In Honor of the Rick Roll

The Rickroll has officially been beaten to death, which is why you won't find a 'rolling link here on Wrecks today.* However, it's still pretty funny, and some folks are still doing it, so in honor of those who have or will be rolled today, here's a lovely little accompanying cake:

Carl found it here; it was made by The Bleeding Heart Bakery, and is one of the nicest Rickroll cakes I've seen. I think the decorator really captured the hair height and patented "Rick Astley Dancing Elbows" quite well, don't you?

And while I'm posting April Fool's related news, I've gotta give a birthday shout-out to my big brother, Ben. Yes, my brother was born on April Fool's. And if you think I didn't get some serious teasing-mileage out of that growing up, you are quite mistaken. [wicked grin] Happy birthday, Ben!

*After today, though, all bets are off.

Somewhere on the internet, there must be a picture of a jelly-roll cake with "Rick" written on it. If not, I think I'll have to make one.

Love your blog, I read it every day. Tell your brother I sympathize. My birthday is April fools day too, and I have had more than my share of jokes.

Funny-my little brother's birthday is April 1st. The teasing of "you being born was a joke" is fun. :)

You know what never gets old? The literal RickRoll. It has some language, but it's awesome.

That cake is OK, but I would never order it.

OK, so those of you who didn't know what a Rickroll was, did you watch the Macy's Thanksgiving parade?! Cartoon Network had RA on their float and Rickrolled the whole viewership! My kids thought it was hysterical, as is this cake!! I SO need to get one of those for my 13yo's next birthday.

Yesterday was my birthday too! So please share my own birthday wishes with your brother.

April Fool's birthdays are awesome, and those of us lucky enough to born on the day know those of you who made fun/make fun are just jealous. ;)

I Rick-rolled my own wedding reception back in October when the bridal party, groom and I entered the hall. 'Twas a good time I'll never regret

Something tells me I'd be well advised not to click any of the links in this post...
