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? ;)

These clowns seem pretty excited about their cupcakes.

No, I mean really excited.

No, no. I mean REALLY excited.

"Oh! Uh. Hi, guys. Heheh. So, what's up?

"What are we doing? Who - us? Uh...nothing? Yeah, nothing. Nothing at all. Sooo....yeah. Listen, can you close that door again on your way out? And turn the Jimmy Buffett CD back on? Thanks. Yeah. You, too. Ok, then. Bye!"

"So I says to her, 'hey, baby, don't let the tiny clown car fool you; it's not the way you throw the cream pie, it's the way you put the tutu on the dog!' And she was all, 'What?' and I was like, 'never mind.' Yeah."

And then, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse...

Something like this comes along:

Whatever you do, DO NOT click on this picture to see it full size. Srsly. Don't do it.


Ok, now that you've clicked on the picture to see it full size - care to join me in a "I could've gone my whole life without seeing clown tinkle toys" scream? Groovy.


Keith R., Will B., Jane O., Amy F., & Nicole V., I nominate "tinkle toys" as the new clown-bits euphemism for 2010. Any seconds?

Note: The tinkle toys in the last picture were supposed to be buttons. Pink buttons.

But wouldn't Cupcake-Humping Clowns be a great name for a rock band?

So I follow Dana J. Gould on Twitter, and literally five seconds after checking out this old post on CW, I went to Twitter and his latest tweet was: "There's nothing like a clown with a boner to remind you that you're having a nightmare."

I seriously about crapped my pants, since this is an older post so that tweet probably had nothing to do with it BUT SERIOUSLY THAT MANY CLOWN PENIS REFERENCES IN ONE SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, WHAT DOES IT MEEEAN??

I just want to see the red "three-legged" clown walk on stilts. You're welcome for that visual ;)

As for the straight-jacketed lil cupcake clowns with tinkle toys... I love 'em! hahaha I (even before I clicked the pic and found the tinkle toys)was cracking up just at the thought of clowns in straight jackets.
