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 turns out that last week was World Breastfeeding Week (motto: "There's a sucker born every minute.") In honor of the occasion, here's what was served at a hospital-sponsored picnic for moms and their babies:

If you're wondering what a life preserver has to do with breastfeeding, then rest assured that so are the rest of us. Personally I like to think that the Wreckerator was in the process of drawing one huge bazooga when s/he was stopped by some killjoy middle manager.

Also note that breastfed babies are "reading for anything." Naturally, I think you'll agree with me when I say this theory simply must be tested. So, the next time you see a mom breastfeeding, try to see if her kid is also reading. (You know, like this.) Then, once you've recovered from the police tasing and posted bail, be sure to report your findings back to us, k?

Anony M., I'll let you explain today's title. ;)

I thought it was a teething ring. Which might make more sense than a life preserver.

Apparently the person that made the cake wasn't breastfed. lol, just kidding...or am i???

Yeah I had my son during national breastfeeding week. All the nurses that asked me if I was going to breatfeed gave me the worst looks when I said that I wasn't. Like I was the worst person in the world...

I still think my son is Reading for Anything though...

I have a feeling it should say "breastfed babies are ready for anything"... LOL apparently the cake maker wasn't breastfed.

I'm *hoping* the giant pink lifesaver is a poor replica of a logo. lol Evidently, the cake decorator was NOT breastfed.
