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? ;)

It can not be a coincidence that I was listening to that exact same Queen song the moment I read this.

Congratulations Cakewreck, a very deserved win. Someone should bake a cake saying 'Congredualationz Cake Wrecks', with sprinkles on the text.

Yahoo! So glad to see that your blog, which give me my 5 minutes of glee a day won! Also, thanks for posting the winners - I've been dying to know (yes, I should get out more).
I"m a secret cake maker in the maker (though I don't make cakes - I just have the wish!) so your blog gives me what I need!! Thanks!

No one deserves it more. There is very little online that makes me literally laugh out loud on a regular basis the way Cake Wrecks does.

My own blog is a grand total of two days old, but reading blogs like yours and Aunt Becky's really gave me the hope to think that someday someone might actually stop in to read mine as well and enjoy it.

Now you have to go for the re-win next year!

You totally deserve it. We gave a big presentation announcing your name but you weren't there and I cried a little inside. I was even wearing a tiara for it and you didn't even show up. I stole your swag bag to make us even.

Wee-Hoo! Proud to be your minion!

A VERY well deserved award! Go Jen! You've provided me with some wonderful, almost-stitch-busting (literally) laughter over the last year, through surgery, chemo and radiation so it totally ROCKS to see you get the recognition you deserve. Yay!

One of the best news I've had all week. Yay! *toots horn and tosses popcorn joyfully* Congratulations Jen and John!

Word Verification is "outine". Somebody misspelled poutine.
