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? ;)

Open Mouth, Insert... Shoe?


Thanks to Richard, who knows better than to stick his nose in a lady's business.

Her cake business, I mean.

That is, her shoe cake business. Yeah.

So, how 'bout them camera angles?

Update: We had to host today's photo on Photobucket which means some of you can't see it. Sorry about that. We'll be back to our regular host tomorrow. -john

Oh gosh... Seriously? If I were the cake maker, I would have asked for a second opinion on the looks of that thing!

I was thinking the same thing what DarkPrincess had said!

Wow. I need to wash my eyes out now. You guys never cease to amaze me and make me laugh! Where do you get your wit from?! I need me some of that!

Lovely ballet slipper. :)

There's a joke about the movie Black Swan here, somewhere, but I can't come up with it.

It's a sparkly canoe. The sparkly stuff attracts fish. You don't even need a rod and reel and hooks and stuff... just sweep up the fishies with a net. It's a very humane way to fish.

Look, I'm trying. At least give me that.

The only "shoe" that even remotely resembles is a beat up ballet slipper-and even that's a stretch. Who did this and what were they thinking?? D:

No matter what angle you look at that from.. I would still run away laughing hysterically. Sorry but if that is what a "shoe" looks like I will walk barefoot from now on. Evil wreckerators sneaking body parts on cakes again.

Don't say stretch.

I'm having flashbacks of giving birth...and expecting to see a little head pop out of that "shoe."

I thought it was Van Gogh's ear if he'd been to a piercing salon.

Oh God.

Oddly enough, I just read advice yesterday saying not to bedazzle that area. Not that I was looking for advice on that, but apparently someone was.

I guess that advice doesn't apply if 'that area' is made of cake.

Someone said it looked like a canoe. Well, not sure about that, but I can definately see the man in the boat.

Sorry, I couldn't resist!

Jacobi, I know you won't see this, but I laughed SO hard at your comment!

February 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

i thought it was a tongue at first...with at lot of piercings. 0.0 no way i would guess that was a shoe.

w/o the pink thing it would have been a cute cake.
