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? ;)

Wow. That kid's a genius. Just born and already ready to retire. I hope he has a great summer vacation.

It's obvious. Amber got pregnant so she had to retire from her porn career, but she's really calling it a "summer vacation."

You know how the Post Office sells "forever stamps," which are good to go whenever you need them?

This is a "forever cake," to be kept in the freezer for as long as you need it, just chopping off the appropriate portions for each celebration as it happens.

Forever cake. Yeah: that's it.

Man...the economy must be bad when a company can only afford one cake for the monthly celebrations.

I think a "baby retirement" is the summer vacation...but the color scheme is making me think like everyone else here. :(

Hey Sendingtheclowns! If any Hallmark scouts are lurking on this site, you just gave them a great idea for a whole new line: Cards from procrastinators. Right now, we've only got "Happy Belated Birthday." We could select "Congratulations on the old baby." "Are you over your loss yet?" "Congratulations - at least you graduated from high school, even though college didn't quite work out" "We thought we would miss you, but honestly, we haven't thought about you much at all since you left." You get the idea. I'm sure this will be hot. And if somebody actually does this from my idea, can I at least have a coupon for a free card (no expiration date, please)?

I live in Kansas City, home of Hallmark, and I have to tell you, the word about town is that the powers that be at Hallmark don't really have that great of a sense of humor, believe it or not. A corporation is still a corporation, I guess.

It's a choose your own adventure cake!

The meaning of life all wrapped into one cake!

I really wonder what the person actually ordered. Or what the meaning behind it all is!

Who knew cakes could spark such deep thoughts?

I guess someone just wanted to be sure that no one was left out on this "special" cake. I guess the person having a baby is also retiring and going on a vacation at the same time. Wow that's one way to cover all the bases but they forgot to add a wedding and a funeral to that as well.. lol.

I have often wondered when the decorator is getting ready to do their thing WHY do they not CALL the person that ordered the cake and ask them????

Hey, jillb-ilslp!

I like the way you think!
You should work for these folks:
(Their motto: "when you care enough to hit send.")
G'wan--check it out. They do some really, really rude, crass, obscene, and otherwise nasty stuff over there.
I love them... *SIGH*

Its a spoof of Mitchell Davis on youtube, I'm pretty sure. LiveLavaLive.
He made a video a while back called "You're Awesome//Get Well//Happy Graduation//You're fired."

Funny thing is, that could be my cake for my work shower- I am an accountant, my baby is due in May (almost summer, and my daughter's summer break starts soon after he's born), and I'll be staying home with him (my boss congratulated me on my semi-retirement, even if I can't collect on it). =)

ps- love your blog!
