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? ;)

Dina the Dirty Dinosaur promises to give you a "Jack Happy" birthday - So happy, in fact, that we've been forced to add our special Wiggles Modesty Car to protect young eyes.

Faith L., you ever get a driving pain in the nether regions? Just curious.

Important Update: The time has come for Cake Wrecks to get a face lift. From 1:00 am est to about 5:00 am, the site will be a bit wonky, to say the least. Hopefully, when you check this Sunday's super geeky Sweets, you will be greeted with a glorious new look. Or you'll get an error message. Which would be bad. Let's just hope for glorious new look. Thanks everyone and Wreck On!

Oh, Jen! I was in the middle of looking through your old posts when you switched to the new layout, and now I can't get back to the page I was looking at!

Loving the new look!

loving the new look! it looks much more professional and stylish :)

Heheh. And another chuckle towards The Courteous Chihuahua for the awesome name and picture.

Also, the new layout is up but not the Sunday Sweets even though it's 10pm on a Sunday... here. Damn you, majority of the rest of the world being behind us Australians timezone-wise!
In fact, the US is so far behind Oz that I could take an 18 hour flight to LAX this time of year and arrive an hour earlier than I left - true story.

The new look is great but I was so hoping that the top banner ad would be gone. Just the top banner ad..... It spoils the effect so much.

Just my 2 cents.

All the best.

I *LOVE* the new look, but would like to make one minor suggestion. Since you're using the naked mohawk babies as part of your logo, you might want to move that link from the "more posts" part of the widget to the top of the "Fan Favourites" section so people who are new here will be able to easily make the connection. I know when I first came here, I saw references to the NMB's, but had no context for them until I stumbled across the post with them in it one day.

So, yeah, it's a really really minor thing, but I thought I'd toss it out there. GREAT work on the design, though - it's really very nice!

Ok I should put this on Sunday's Sweets but the new look is GRRrrreat!

September 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Yay, the new look is fantastic!

Dorothy the Dinosaur is so much nicer looking in "real life!" This cake makes her look like some sort of perverted granny.

September 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVickie

I see where Jen is coming from here. It's not Dorothy the Dinosaur, but her shameless hussy of a cousin Dina the Pornosaur.

September 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWolvie Girl

I think that the dinosaur is going to eat the Wiggles.

I've heard the Wiggles, and I might encourage said eating.

(granted I'm not in their demographic so I don't think they're cute in the least...)

Dorothy! What have they done to you?!?!

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

definitely Dorthy but where re the roses?

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkyooty

Wow. Somehow this reminded me to shave my legs. Hmm... Oh and btw, have an interview with a super center bakery tomorrow. Maybe someone will come take some pics of my wrecks. So excited.

Little red corvette!

This cracks me up because the cake itself is really cute - but whoever wrote on it and then stuck a car on it basically ruined it...LOL

That's DOROTHY. Dorothy the dinosaur, which I know because I attended a Wiggles concert dressed in a Dorothy hat complete with teeth around the brim, and a Dorothy tail attached to my ass. ALL THE DOROTHY GEAR HAD TO BE ORDERED FROM AUSTRALIA months in advance. Go ahead, ask me how much I love my nephew.
