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? ;)

Great Expectations

There are plenty of ways to tell your friends, family, and significant others that you're pregnant.

I wouldn't recommend any of these.



U R j/k, right?

Yeah, when breaking news this big you should really spell it out:

(You're doing *what* to a baby?)

Especially for your better half:


Sounds serious.

And on her birthday, too.

This one gets a little saucy:

Say it with me now:

"It's in there."

(Ah, Retro commercial slogans for the win!)

Still, when someone has been trying for so long to achieve what comes naturally to others, it's only right that we celebrate such a monumental accomplishment:

See, they managed to squeeze the "m" in.

Thanks to Wreckporters Margo K., Roberto S., Margaret J., Cheri P., & Kristen B., who are all expecting.


Oh! A large piece of cake, I mean. Yeah, they're expecting cake.

Sorry about that pregnant pause there; I was distracted by my own little bun in the oven.

It's cinnamon. It smells delicious.

re "Thanx 4 knocking me up"

I served it at a small gathering of 4 male "friends". I plunked it on the table and presented each guy with a vial to supply a sample for paternity testing. The lawyer was waiting outside.

wv chokyb: the sound of the heads of the 4 guys as they fell over backward

Yes, telling someone they are pregnant (or, in this case, Pregant) on their birthday is just a wonderful gift. Especially if they don't know.
What are they doing to the baby? Teaching it how to spell incorrectly, that's what they're doing. I understand kids memember things from the womb, and this is not a good influence. Especially if they become wreckerators.

if you're gonna be that tacky, you could at least spell correctly!

That first cake sullies the good name of Carvel. Not to mention the good name of correct spelling.
