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? ;)

You wreck! I mean rock!!! Congratulations!!

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnne

You totally deserved it, too! I'm so, so glad that you won. I only wish I'd been able to meet you at the winner's party. Because you and I? WE WIN AT LIFE.

In all seriousness, you rule. Congrats. I'd try to type out the LONG version of that word? But I'd misspell it. And then you'd have to start a site called "Comment Wrecks."

There, I could submit billions of entries.

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAunt Becky

Yay!! You totally deserve it!

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

Congrats to CakeWrecks, and especially to Heather Spohr at the Spohrs are multiplying. Heather and Mike recently and unexpectedly lost their 17 month old Maddie. Maddie was a beautiful, spunky, miracle baby and former preemie. Now Heather is pregnant again. I'd encourage all my fellow Wreckies to check it out!!

Cakewrecks is my favorite blog. It has changed my life. I found myself at the market last night without my kids and I took a special trip through the bakery to see if there were any wrecks. None, but a few that were close :-)

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Yahoo! Way to go! Y'all RAWCK!!!!

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersues2u2

I knew that voting 6 times a day from different accounts, would send you over the edge. Well I meant the edge of votes, but the other edge works too.

Thanks for all the great laughs. I think the commentary is normally better than the wrecks themselves!

July 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Woa, wait. This blog is supposed to be funny?
