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? ;)

Sweets For Dad

Today, we celebrate men.

And not just any men: men who make babies! Also, men who adopt babies! Also, men who are with women who made babies with other men! Also, men who adopted babies and there are no women involved except those involved in making the babies! (Ok, so pretty much all men, except for men like me who have no babies. Except my cats.)

Look, men! Cigars!

(Sub'd by Laura V. and made by Sweet Gems)

How manly!

And what's this? Could it be Captain Kirk?!?!

(Sub'd by Judy M. and made by Spense)

Extremely manly!

And what man would be complete without one of those blue and white shirts from 80's Wall Street movies?

(Sub'd by Christina W. and made by Esperanza)

It's business time!

Football! And not that wussy European football*, either! No!

(Sub'd by Jennifer L. & baker unknown)

MANLY Football!

*grunting*

And tools!!
Every man needs tools!

(Sub'd by Colette D. and made by Cheri's Bakery)

Somebody break something so I can fix it!

And Harley Davidson motorcycles!

(Sub'd by PJ. and made by Amore Cake)

Because MEN ride them!

And Vegemite!

(Sub'd by Sarah H. and made by Ab Fab Cakes)

Because MEN at Work sang about it, that's why!
Somebody make me a sandwich!

And finally, what's more manly than man's best friend?

(Made by A Couple of Sweet Things)

D'awww, who's a widdle boopsie boo? Izzit you? Yesh, it is!!

[looking up]

Oh, uh...hi, guys. Heh.

So. Um. Where were we?

Oh, right.

Alright, men! Sing it with me!

We're men!
We're men in tights. (Tight Tights!)
We roam through the woods
looking for fights.
We're men! (MANLY men!)
We're men in tiiiights,
When you're in a fix
Just call for the men in tights!

(We're butch!)


Happy Father's Day Falker Satherhood, all.


*Update! Just so we're clear, when I say "European Football," I am referring to soccer, a game where gently bumping a player results in said player holding his face and screaming in agony while rolling around on the ground. I am in no way referring to Rugby, a game so manly that just typing it has caused hair to burst from under my shirt collar. Glad we cleared that up.

Lol. Robin Hood: Men in Tights is the best movie ever. You got some of the lyrics wrong, though... Awesome cakes!

So is the toolbox cake the male equivalent of the purse cake, then? All we need now is a hiking boot cake to go with the high-heeled shoe cakes and we're set!

Also OMG CAPTAIN KIRK (even if it does kinda look a liiiittle bit like he's sitting on a toilet)
