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? ;)

Fit To Be Tied

Tied, dyed, and uglified:

Ready to be clued in?

It's supposed to be a shirt.

See, you can tell by the...uh...well, by asking the Wreckerator.

Thanks to Mary M., who blames hippies with lava lamps in the 60's.

Personally, I think it was Lucy. In the sky. With diamonds.

Anyone want to check the envelope?

(P.S. If you got that, I love you. And if you didn't, just consider this post script a red herring.)

"You know, it doesn't look much like a t-shirt." - "Well, how 'bout if we slather some of this drippy white icing in the shape of a rectangle and put it out in the garage to melt for awhile?!" - "Yeah! That's way better!"

I can't say at what angle the shirt appears, but my coworkers are looking at me funny for turning my monitor over...and over...

Like Norine and Jenn, I was going for the slightly less obvious and saw a map of the United States. Let's face it, it's way more accurate than most of the attempts at maps that I've seen here. My second guess would have been a weird mutant rectangular fish with giant lips.

WV: cepshs - a weird mutant fish with rectangular lips.

Aw fiddles! When you said Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, I was looking for entirely the wrong kind of substance in the envelopes! :-P

Jenn - I thought I was done with that Verizon torture. Please tell me that was a complete fluke and you weren't referencing that horrible R2D2 hunt because the entire end of your post looks like an entry from the droid landing forum and I thought it was over and I was safe to browse the web!!
