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? ;)

Barbie's Had It Up To HERE

"And next we have a post-modern commentary on the restricting nature of societal expectations and chauvinistic stereotypes on the modern woman:

"That, or Bev got carried away with the ruffle tip again."

Good luck explaining that to the 6-year-olds, Roz W.

Note: That's a "Make Me Pretty Barbie Styling Head" on top there. Seriously. The jokes almost write themselves, don't they?

I so wouldn't want a Barbie head on my cake unless it was for a halloween bash. Ugh and all that frosting would be a parents nightmare lol.

This makes me a total nerd but I'll say it anyway - my instant reaction was "Venetian Pasticcerie" and if you look at the reflection of the buildings in the window they do have a certain italian look (could be wrong - don't flame me) But my point is that every street corner in Venice has a Pasticcerie with this kind of flamoyant kitchness on display.

I just wanna know; who in the heck thought that putting that Barbie head on top like that was a good idea?!

My 5 year old was looking at the blog with me and we came across this barbie cake. Her mouth dropped, she turned and walked away in disgust and said, "I'm done." HA! HA! Even a 5 year old girl was not impressed with all the ribbons and frills.
