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? ;)

Ever Feel Like ----Thing's Missing?

Ah yes, it's Mike & Louisa of the Perpetual Merriment.
(I bet they're morning people, too. Blech.)

Forget missing words - that "t" is a work of arT!

Also, do you pronounce "Rubye" kind of like ribeye? 'Cuz that's how it sounds in my head. (When the pink Snickers bar says it, anyway. The other voices haven't reached a consensus yet.)

"Welcome N J Bell to Virizan and"


And what? What?!? TELL ME!! I MUST KNOW!!!

Arg, this suspense is killing me! Why don't you just send Sheppard out on another suicide mission and make me wait six months to see if he lives or not? Huh? How 'bout that, funny boy?*

Oh, and speaking of suicide missions:

Who wants a slice of Adam's ca-aake? [sing-song]

Anyone? Anyone?

Sure, it's nice to know that "Kaun" and Jerry are happy, but I imagine this kind of word omission could lead to some rather, shall we say, misleading, inscriptions:

[shifty eyes] Er. Yes, kinda like that.

(It's short for RICHARD, people - and I'll leave any remarks about the (in)appropriateness of the decorations to you guys.)

*Yes, I do realize that cliff-hanger was 5 years ago - I just never fully recovered, is all.

Tracy H., Shelley A., Lori & Mary S., Chris Z., Bethany G., & Jennifer H, Good!

The Verizon cake was my mom's and was supposed to say...drum roll... "From NJ Bell to Verizon and Beyond" to commemorate the company's name change and celebrate a get together of Verizon employees old and new. Welcome.. AND WHAT!?

I'd finally convinced myself that I'm entirely too attached to my favorite SGA fanfiction site and should go find something else to surf. Hey, I thought, there was that cake blog. And, suddenly, the cake-girl is talking about Sheppard too. I shook my head, blinked my eyes, reread, thought "Naa, can't be SGA". Kept reading. Yup, she meant Col. Sheppard. Sigh, How bizzare. I can't escape.

As for the movie, I read on IMDB a few weeks back that due to the economy some projects were being "indefinitley postponed". The SGA movie among them (sniff).

As for the cakes, oh yeah, almost forgot about them. Got a little side tracked...

Congratulations on your 60th dick. That's a lot of dicks. I only have one :/

Messed-up inscriptions are my favorite kind of wreck :D

It made me giddy to see a Season 1 SGA reference. Gone from the SciFi network, but not from our hearts...

Is that a Stargate Atlantis reference in MY Cake Wrecks?

John Sheppard is delicious. No wonder he's on a cake blog.

Waiting for the outcome of that mission was horrible. :)

My friends and I are so geeky that we're making t-shirts for a sci-fi conference that say:

(mine) John is my Sheppard, I shall not want.

(Jan's) Hey Carson, wanna play doctor?

(Katie's) Call me McKatie.

At least there's one for each of us.

@Katie - "I accidentally the cake is a lie." Hilarious! Heeeee!

Really, the whole post had me giggling, and then the comments were also awesome. My favorite Cake Wrecks far.

Actually, the "accidentally" cake may not even be an accident. It's a relatively well-known internet meme where a person will say the fragment "I accidentally *noun*." Might just have been a cake for someone internet savvy.

Actually, Rubye is pronounce like Ruby......just like it looks :)

January 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think that one cake should have said, "We accidentally your Mom."

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow! Came here by way of a mention from another SGA fan. How have I overlooked this site so long?!? I know what my sister's getting for her birthday ('cause I love her & she decorates cakes & needs more belly-laughs in her life :-)!

Oh, & thanks to those who commented for educating me about a meme I hadn't run into yet. I would've looked really silly when I went all grammar-Nazi on someone's ass....

The meme about "accidentally" was about a guy who shoved a glass jar in his behind, and the joke was GUYS I ACCIDENTALLY A GLASS JAR IS THIS WIN Y/N? I was there, I saw it happen.

I accidentally a fleshlight. The WHOLE fleshlight.
Is this bad?

... YES!!! I am I am NOT crazily obsessed!!! I saw "Sheppard" and, being the Stargate geek that I am, thought, "Colonel Sheppard!" followed quickly by a feeling of disappointment when I concluded it likely wasn't the one I was thinking of. So I checked the reviews just to be sure. ^^ But it WAS who I was thinking of. And now, I can happily share that I began watching it late in the game. I bought the entire first season on DVD, without ever having seen the show. Just to show you dedication to my fandom. ^^' But I found I preferred it to SG-1. You should have SEEN my frantic scrambling when I reached the end of the season. Within 16 hours I had located the second season online, for free. I just had to navigate the Chinese script to watch it. :P NEVER underestimate the power of globalization and yahoo.

Maybe Adam was turning 8 and the candle would make it read We accidentally 8 your cake....but that makes no sense either as the cake is there. What a wreck!
