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? ;)

And they got "Congratulations", supposedly the hard part right??!!

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHeatherH

Perhaps the first is for a child named after Tarzan's son, Boy?

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

I totally read this with a "moose & squirrel" accent!

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

But at least they spelled "Congratulations" correctly on the first cake...

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBoy George's the mysteriously appearing and disappearing post! Glad to see it reappeared!

I had no choice but read that aloud. Cracked myself up, I did. Thanks. :D Off topic, do you watch Castle on ABC? Tuesday's ep had a whole underground steampunk community. Naturally, I thought of you. :) Nathan Fillion is a taste sensation unto himself, but in costume.... mmmmmm.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertuney

At least in Soviet Russia they can spell Congratulations English, no less! ;)

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Am I the only one who expected the punchline of this post to be "Cake wrecks YOU!"? ...Anyone? Bueller?

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFreezair

In Soviet Russia, content misspells you. :P

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

Reminds me of that Comcast commercial - the rich Russian guy that kisses that tiny giraffe! LOL

I wonder if there was ever a Russian bizarro world type cake that said "Is a Gril!"

wv: terfer - We got a terfer one post on the blog today :-)

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is nice in Russia they have blue daisies for cakes.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJeff

...cake wrecks you.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason Glor

I think we need an It's Boy onesie to correspond with the "It a Gril" onesie.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJael

At first I saw the Congratulations and I thought, "Omigosh someone spelled it right!" I knew there was to be imminent doom, however....It's Boy made day.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClara

'tis a sad commentary on how we can sometimes "skim read" that it took me three times of looking before I SAW the issues on these cakes... :(

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLissy

Hooray, it came back! I saw it around 9:30 this morning... enjoyed it quite a bit.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJ. R. W.

Gee, nearly 6 years ago, we were listening to everyone around us speaking like this as we took our 2 new children into our family. Duncan's orphanage director: Here--is boy for you. Gabby's orphanage director: Here--is girl for you. You take, you love, you be good family. Bye-bye.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaurel

In Soviet Russia we always get "congratulations" right and we disdain articles.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaisy

haha, I was just telling somebody today that "the" and "a" are my worst enemies, I constantly put them where they don't go and leave them out where they should be, it's not my fault my native language doesn't have these silly articles!! I even read the whole post with a very broken Russian accent in my head, hilarious :)

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlisa in Taiwan

Boris and Natasha approve! Is very good post! Is not good cakes, though.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJanelle

Is Funny!

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPacingSanity

Is good cakes Yah?

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

What is on the sides of that first cake - Rice Krispies?!

Freezair, I did too :)

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKarin

I immediately thought of the Bullwinkle episode where Boris dresses as a surgeon to "operate" on Bullwinkle, then afterwards tells Rocky: "Congratulations, Squirrel - you are the proud father of a dead moose!"

Just imagine THAT written on cake, Boris dahlink!

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDelibird

This made me... LOL... for reals ya'll.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, my! Is rice krispie sided cake!

Thanks for two post. Love extra.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Cake is how you say? "Moose Cake" yes?

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterclan of the cave hair

I vant shprinkle.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterValerieDJ

You have to read this out loud, it's more fun that way :)

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChris

At least they spelled "congratulations" right! It must be spelled the same in Russian. :)

October 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

At least they spelled congratulations right lol.. at least I think they did but either way not as horrid as a baby alien popping out of a naked lady.. bleh!

October 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

I blew up (in a manner of speaking) the first cake to see what was on the sides. First impression: graham cracker crumbs = good. Second impression: fried chicken crispies = not good (at least on cake). Another commentator said Rice Krispies; also good. Which is it? No idea.

I was going to award points for 'congratulations' until the above-mentioned enlargement showed that the a's are exactly the same as the o's. Thus, 'congrotulotions' are in order.

Fearless Leader is happy.

I can't even tell you how excited I am to see one of my cakes-- err, well, one of my PICTURES of cakes on here. So awesome! I totally screenshotted it. (top cake)

Protip: It WAS from an Italian bakery.

Also, Craig! Crumbled vanilla wafers! Oh jeez! xD

Is Boy cake is not from Russa is Connecticut!

October 18, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermary

Is funny! Is very, VERY funny. At least cake is tasty, da?

(No, I'm not actually Russian. But one of my ancestors was. So I can fake an accent pretty well. Is genetic.)
