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? ;)

As some of you know, I have a special place in my heart for the Swedish Chef. (This is mostly due to John's dead-on impersonation.) So for today's Wreck, I figured I'd let the Cake Wreck Master show us how it's done (and for once I'm not talking about Sandra Lee).

If that "cake" looks familiar, it may be because you're of the five trillion readers who sent me this some weeks ago:

And if you'd like to see "cannibul cake" (aka Cakey the Cake from Outer Space) sing a little Karen Carpenter, you can go here.

The Swedish chef is definitely my culinary hero. I think my favorite sketch is the "chocolate moose" one.

and that lol-cake make me giggle.

This entry is the best ever! I had a college professor who looked like Kelsey Grammar, was super conservative and once did a Swedish Chef impression in class for reasons I no longer recall. I love Swedish Chef!

WOW! Another cake puppet!

As the person who built Cakey! based on designs from my friend Dyna Moe I can tell you that the resemblance is purely coincidental.

Bork bork bork!

First comment on an old post, but I had to here because my mama made one of those not even two weeks after this post (a friend of mine only directed me here last week, though!) for my (different) friend's 21st birthday.

I had showed her "cannibul cake" and she kept bugging Mama about baking her one, so come her birthday, out came the round cake pans, chocolate frosting, and red glitter gel. However... We got creative with it.

Unfortunately, I lost all my photos of it, but it ended up with big craft googly eyes, plastic-fork-prong fangs, pink glitter gel lip gloss, and a pool of red glitter gel down the front. (We elaborated because said friend loves vampires.)

The funniest part was either when we had to stuff it with cake scraps because the mouth was collapsing or the picture of my friend acting like the cake was gonna eat her.

But it was quite delicious...and we were all kinda afraid to eat the face.
