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? ;)

We Are SO Gonna Get In Trouble For This One...

You know when your waiter at a restaurant tells you that you look like somebody really famous, and you're always secretly terrified they're going to say it's Gary Busey or a "heftier" version of Macauley Culkin?

Or is that just me?

Well, we got this awesome Batman cake in a while ago, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out who it reminded me of. Here, see if it rings any bells for you...

Let's see, strong chin, luscious full lips, surgically enhanced cheek bones...Who could it be?

Oh, wait, now I remember.

This lady:

Remember to use your inside voices when you screech in terror, mmkay, class? Inside voices. That's better. Now. See the resemblance? No?

[clickety-click, mouse, mouse, click] (that's the sound of mad-Photoshop-skills at work)

Ok, how 'bout now?

See? Just like the cake.
Only, you know, with a side of eye-clawing terror.

Enjoy it while you can, Cewest; I figure we have approximately 4 minutes before someone tries to sue us.

Note: The woman pictured is the infamous "Cat Woman." She has had extensive plastic surgery, and enjoys being seen and photographed in public like any other celebrity. Since she chooses to look this way, we thought including her photo would be more appropriate than, say, Jay Leno's. Since some of you have still found this offensive, however, rest assured that we've nixed all the jokes about Owen Wilson's nose in future posts.

How did NOBODY mention that it is completely COMMON for Craig Ferguson to show a picture of the "Cat Lady" when ANY celebrity has plastic surgery?!?!?!

This comment may come too late for anyone to read it, but...count me among those who found this post a bit offensive and mean-spirited.

Even more offensive, though, are the rude comments from people who believe they are defending Cake Wrecks by referring to persons with dissenting opinions as "trolls," recommending they stop reading the blog, or resorting to childish taunting ("wimpy asses" who are "in need of a waaah-mbulance" -- seriously??).

And, incidentally, tacking a first name onto the end of an anonymous post does not make one brave, nor give him/her the right to call someone else an "anonymous coward."

Finally, thanks much to Carrie for so eloquently and effectively expressing a reaction that I'm sure was shared by many, if not the majority.

After screaming, before reading the warning about inside voices;
Me: They are mad that a cake looks like a real person? The cake looks fine, its her fault that she looks all scary like that.
My husband: Oh thats a real person? I thought that was a cake too.

Dont get mad. She made herself look like that and she still let herself get photographed.

This also reminds me of that horrid Paris Hilton vehicle (no I never saw it! Just the trailer!) "House of Wax", where the killer coats his victims in wax... just the weird surface texture.
It's also creepy because the lower part of the face is there, but not the upper. Was his head cut off from the eyes up? Eugh!

I cannot un-see it.

Haha, I first thought of the rather obscure Norwegian (satiric) super hero Fanthomas, a play on a Norwegian stylist called Jan Thomas...

A link to images on Google to clarify my point:
