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? ;)

LOL! Ok. The store this came from apparently doesn't hire the brightest people because time and time again I see their screw ups. Makes for a good laugh though, so keep it coming.

I don't remember the title, but I remember reading a poem with " my eyes cry to see you, arms ache to hug you, lips .... to kiss you"

I lost my daughter 5 years ago next month and over the years have read many poems and writings about the loss of a child. sorry but I don't remember the exact poem, and a quick search of google didn't bring it up.

Mom needs a pair of scissors for Mother's Day: to cut the apron strings. Yikes!

Was this Shia's cake to his mom?

My eyes cry to see you??

Is that a compliment?

If Hamlet ordered a cake for his mother, this is what it would be. But I bet it still wouldn't make her leave Claudius.

You know, this is actually the PERFECT cake for Oedipus to give his mom for Mother's Day...

...after all, he DID blind himself, so he wouldn't have been able to see that scary-orange color scheme. (Which is a good thins, as he would have been blinded by the hideousness if he DID still have his sight.)

This reminds me of when that guy on American Idol said he was dedicating the song he was about to sing to his parents...and then proceeded to sing "Let's Get it On"

This reminds me of Ben Stiller in Tropic Thunder when he's playing his Simple Jack character: "My eyes are raining!!!"

It looks like "cry" was first spelled "crie" then corrected. This cake is a disaster...and the message is nothing less than sickening.

Obviously this poor woman lost her child. But still... why write it on a cake? I feel bad for her.

My take... sent by someone with limited english, from another continent, to her mom the guest worker. Hugs to all...

My favorite part is where they spelled "crie" and then attempted to fix it... but still said "huge"
