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? ;)

Lol yay to sad Keanu. Now his cakes are manly. Who knows if they are edible but at least they aren't mutating into weird alien things..yet.

The Ink Child provided the link I was going to provide. This whole "not manly enough" thing is EVERYWHERE.

First of all, I LOVE this site, especially the wide variety of allusions (the archived Pirate cakes post with the Pirates who Don't Do Anything reference has been my favorite thus far).

But I'm wondering if I should be offended that enjoying a site about mangled cake decorations apparently makes me an overweight soccer mom...or at least, one would assume so due to the fact that the banners that repeatedly pop up here are for Weight Watchers, plus-sized clothing, cell phones, and household appliances (specifically washers & dryers)...I know you don't control the ads and they really don't bother me...I actually found the automated ad selection a bit amusing, & wondered if anyone else had noticed...

At times like these, I almost wonder if the cake wasn't meant to be a joke...Of course, in that case, only the man *would* buy the joke cake...

I have to say, this may be my favorite Cake Wrecks post of all time. I just can't stop giggling. "If only my cake was more manly" - snort!

A gun would also make any cake a manly cake.

If someone put a roll of duct tape and a can of WD-40 on a cake, now we're talking! Representations of these things, I hasten to add, not the contents. Gotta spell things out in case any wreckerators are lurking. Otherwise, one could fully expect to see a cake mummy-wrapped in duct tape and marinated in the stuff of 1001 uses. Not good eats.

Please, please, please, please find a duct taped cake and post it. PLEAAAASSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
