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? ;)

The second cake - I love that the smile is a frown in the reflection.

The third cake - Makes me wonder if the order form's corner was turned over and the wreckator didn't realize it was supposed to be square corner.

Second Blues Brother's quote I've heard this week! :)

The cake with the ornaments on it I thought at first said "Marry Christmas" which made me wonder what on earth this wreckerator was going for lol and look they ate a piece of it to boot. Wow poor cheated Darryl. Now I cannot get the song out of my head and if my husband comes home from work to hear me singing of a penguin chorus well it won't be my fault at all lol.

I keep thinking "Matrix" with those penguins!

Penguins in sunglasses. They're obviously mafiosi. Or part of the cast of "Reservoir Dogs." The funny looking guy on the end wants to know why he has to be Mr. Pink.

I would totally love to see a baker try and cover their butt by singing "Fa lalalala, It comes that way!"
