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? ;)

They Call Me...Tater Salad

But that's still not as silly as Mary's nickname:

Kinda makes you wonder how she got it.

Or if it has anything to do with that plastic thing in a bag taped to the top of the box.

Hey, Mary "Toy In Middle" R., maybe you should try an acronym:

HA. What kinda TIM was it supposed to be? Gotta love the python.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStella

Hahaha - love it :)

LMAO That's awesome! Haven't listened to Ron White since my satellite radio got stolen...

Just a recommendation, if you ever have a chance to see Spamalot, DO IT. I laughed through the first three quarters of the show (including intermission). I only stopped laughing by the end because I'd had a drink at intermission that sobered me up a little bit.

Monty Python? Oh you just made my day!

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Mocha Monster

AAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA I can't handle the two references together. In one post. In addition to that cake.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Unfair to make a pregnant woman laugh that hard - it makes us pee.

Love Ron - "and this is my son - Tater Tot..." Love Monty Python - you have made my day!!! And the wreck was pretty funny, too....

Anything that is wanted on a cake should have a note attached that says, "put this on the cake." Of course, the cake would then have either the note or the toy -- still in bag -- on it...

Nice daisies, though.

Haha-YES! That's my cake :D

You made my day with posting this and attaching the video with it.

Craig: That was one of their already created cake options--she didn't bring in the toy separately. All they had to do was look at THEIR cake picture. :\

It's funny that these things happen on their own. Have you ever tried to ORDER a cake wreck? "Yes, I actually want it to say 'sprinkles' and 'big blue' ON the cake."

kind of makes you wonder if the decorators are "drunk in public".

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterteri

I agree with Eponita...SPAMALOT is one of the the best shows I have seen! Saw it in Vegas and San Diego and laughed just as hard the second time as the first! =)

BTW...Ron White and Monty togother = total awesomeness!! =)

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

I was enjoying Holy Grail clip so much, it took me a minute to realize that you said acronym and "Toy In Middle" is Tim!

You are so witty! And I am sooooo slow today!

Where did you get those coconuts??

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Congrats, Mary TIM, the Enchanter!

(love, love, love MP&THG on CakeWrecks every time you pull it off!)

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjillb-ilslp

:) That cake, colour scheme and handwriting look kind of familiar... Do these guys end up on Cake Wrecks quite often, or is it just me confabulating?

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna in NZ

Too wrong! But, so right!



October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Ron White would say "you can't fix stupid" and Monty Python would award them "Twit of the Year" award

October 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissNay

Please don't tell me that Mary is pregnant and this is their way of congratulating her lol. Because if so I think they better run for the hills. And I love Monty Python and the Holy Grail! Killer bunnies lol get me every time.

October 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

Well as long as she has the most at the end, she'll win!

LOL! You got em! You caught the Tater!

I had the right to remain silent... but I didn't have the ability.

Oh thanks for the laugh! He cracks me up.

I think the camo flower cake is actually a paint ball cake... kinda cute if you like ugly cake

October 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My 3-year-old just came in here, covered my mouth and told me to stop laughing. You're messin' with our happy household, man. I wish I had a dorky nickname.

October 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

With apologies to Monty Python, "Toy in the Middle" is WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY better than "Tim".


October 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

AHHH I love Ron White!!!

October 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdesi

AWESOME!!! I love Ron White!!!

October 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdesi

Okay, my 6-year-old (who doesn't know Monty Python yet) saw the clip and noted my big laugh--he said, "I think his name is Mike, and they just call him 'Tim' ".

October 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I would like a shrubbery.

Love that you ref'd MP on Cake Wrecks. 2 things that really crack me up.
