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? ;)

By Popular Demand: More Wreckwear!

Because I love you guys, and you asked for it:

Here's the back:
And while I'm at it, check out this hilarious little number Erin Lusk of The Cupcake Attitude whipped up:

Ah, it doesn't get any better than passive-aggressive baked goods. Be sure to check out Erin's site for more cute designs like this.

And naturally, I stuck it on a shirt:

I also added a new "I Want Sprinkles" design last week for myself:

(The site address is on the back.)

Which looks great on an apron:

And lastly, partly because I thought it was fun, and partly out of curiosity to see if anyone would actually ever purchase such a thing, I whipped up a Naked Mohawk-Baby Carrot Jockey tie:

If any of you actually buy and wear this thing, you must send me pictures. Seriously; that would just about make my day. ;)

You can click on any of the above pictures to go the corresponding Zazzle page, where you can tinker with colors and shirt styles to your heart's content. You could even buy the item in question, but I know that's just crazy talk, so I'll stop now.

If you have a design you'd like to see on a Cake Wrecks shirt, e-mail me! If I use it, I'll give you a shout-out here on the blog and link to your blog or website both here and on Zazzle.

The tie is too awesome!
It's a little Halloweeny on the black background for my tastes but a dark teal looks nice.

Did anyone else notice that when one scrolls up or down, the baby carrot jockeys fly across the tie? Now, if only the actual tie would have flying baby carrot jockeys...

I think my doctor needs that tie. It couldn't be any worse than the green one with the little golfers on it that he worse the last time I saw him.

I love that tie, for $15 maybe. Not for $32. And I would wear it, and color coordinate it, and send you a picture. But not for $32

I wear ties all the time.. i have to agree with DN. polyester ties do not wear well.. and are not worth a higher price. I would wear the tie, but not at that price. (okay ties for me are like shoes for some)
