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? ;)

Conventional Wisdom

It's possible that I just spent the last four days relentlessly Twitter-stalking everyone at San Diego Comic Con. Possible. You can't prove it. What do you mean, when did I shower last? I'm going for an authentic experience here! Gimmie back my Funyuns.

Anyway, coming down off a convention high - even one acquired vicariously through social networking sites - requires a gradual withdrawal. Yesterday's Sweets helped a little, but really, they were just too good. I need a visual sucker punch to knock me back into reality, you know?

Theeere it is.


And for that final cold blast of reality, this should fit the Bill:

"Oh nooooo!"

I could probably end there, but frankly, this is too much fun.

First rule of cons: always pick a costume that's size-appropriate:

This also applies with cake kits.

Second rule of cons: a lone mask does not a costume make.

Come to think of it, that *also* applies to cakes. And cookies.

Third rule of cons: Lace is never intimidating.

"Join me, Luke, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and...what? What's so funny? Why are you laughing?

"Is it the doily? It is, isn't it? Hutt nuts, I told Palpatine no one would take me seriously in this thing."

And finally, the Na'vi Nazis are here to show us what happens when you mix your sci-fi references:

See, I told them not to open that ark. [shudder] Blech.

Thanks, Deborah, Laux, Shawn F., Tharry, Lizzy S., Julie Anne D., & Shanell C.! See y'all at Dragon*Con. ;)

Note from john: The first cake is supposed to be Iron Man. We think. Most likely. Probably. Okay I'm like 63% sure.

Nappy Blob Blob Katelynn!

I, too, thought the first cake was supposed to be Lady Cassandra!

The Lady Cassandra, for the win!

Mr. Bill in carbonite = awesome, but who wants to eat that metallic grey icing? Bleah.

"Hutt nuts!" lol

Oh. They've encased Mr. Bill in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

I'm pretty sure the first cake is a bathing suit. These are true wrecks!

C'mon, Jen....

Hutts don't have nuts. DV wouldn't say that. I expect realistic snarkiness when I read your blog. Get it together.

Seriously, your commentary is what makes this blog great. Cake wrecks are just the vehicle for your talent with wit and sarcasm. Keep up the good work.

I totally got Lady Cassandra O'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen for cake number one as well!

Wikilink to the eppie:

Link her character page (with photo!) on Tardis Wikia:

zombie tomato!

I totally didn't get the first cake was Iron Man either, I thought it was a jersey with blank lines for empty numbers. I agree it would be a good Lady Cassandra cake though.
