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? ;)

A Disaster of Biblical Proportions

And I thought dogs and cats living together was bad. Man.

Monika D., I think we're gonna need a bigger umbrella. Oh, and "Tanks."

NOTE: I'm trying something new: multiple postings a day! So if the morning post seems short, like this one, that's your cue that more Wreckage will be published later that day. We'll still have our longer marathon-style posts, of course; I just figured I'd try shaking things up a bit. Hope you like it. (And if you don't like it, hope you don't comment all troll-like.)

My doc says I need more wreckage in my diet anyway. At least I THINK that's what he said....

I have to say, my morning routine is to crack open my laptop with my bowl of Froot Loops at the table and open up 5 tabs and read the news, look at the arrests for the previous day, and look at Cake Wrecks. I do it all at once, and it gives me a good start to my day. I don't mind the multiple small posts, but I have no idea when they're going to be posted, so I just sit around like a loser checking the site over and over again. I like my cake in heaping forkfuls!

I agree...I think it's for Keven and Elise's shower. Makes more sense...but since I had a shower of joe (coffee) this morning when my bus driver floored it I guess they both work :-)

And I love the new format...It means when I check on my break at work there will be laughter more times a day!

"comment all troll-like"

You crack me up; I'm going to use that one.

My guess is that this was done by a Jonas Brothers fan. (or a mom of tweenagers.) They are lucky it doesn't read Showers of Joe, Kevin and Nick.

It's just a cold sore. This was obviously done by someone who doesn't get them. Those suckers hurt! Although I do think that cake would help me get over cold sores faster, or at least lessen the pain.

LMAO!! Troll-like?! :)

Love the multiple post idea! You know we will be holding you to it though, right?

Well, to be honest I like reading all of my cakey goodness all at once. I like seeing the wacky progression of each crazy concoction!

I think the person placing the order said "I have to get the cake for the showers of Joe (Jo - Joanne?), Keven and Elise" meaning 3 cakes for 3 separate showers to be held that weekend, for 3 of her friends. Who don't even know one another.
This is the cake she got. She didn't know which shower to take it to.

I have a poster at my desk that ends with "And remember, as you grind your way through life, you're never alone when you've got Joe."

So go ahead and pass me another cake.

And sometimes an umbrella is just an umbrella

I like doing the smaller posts. you're bound to get some classics that really can't be categorized with other, so I think this is a great way to still allow us to see them, along with some great little one-liners.

I like the new format, and would only add the suggestion that you add more posts to the front page, so lazy people like me have to click less if we show up late. Because everyone knows the world has to bow to the demands of the lazy. And demanding.

Or you can just ignore me. I'll keep coming here anyway.

I LOVE the multiple postings... Like appetizers, only SWEETER!

At least the color of the cake isn' *sorry*

And anytime you want to spoil us with more wreckage and hilarity, feel free!!! Wee! Oh - tacky? I mean, Yay!

I love the lots of postings! More wrecks for me to die laughing over.. especially this one. Are those three hurricanes coming to get the person that wrecked this cake? Lol if so I would run..

I love all your posts, short, long, one-a-day, many-a-day, etc. Just keep them coming.

Thanks for providing the smiles I need on rough days.

Just remember: It's true. This man has no... Uh... Nevermind...

I love that you linked to that Ghostbusters clip. It was on TV last week, and it's one of those movies I watch EVERY TIME it comes on.
