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? ;)

Countdown to V-day

With Valentine's Day coming up, you might be wondering what to get your significant other for the occasion. Other than roses, chocolates, and cheap stuffed animals, I mean. Because, obviously, those are required. [stern face]

Well, fortunately for you, bakeries still have lots of sweet, romantic options tailor-made to fit your snuggly bun's personality to a "t." Check it out:

For the co-dependent:

When your boyfriend starts crying, you'll know it's only because he's so happy.

For the stalker:

Quietly delivered when they least expect it.

*Hidden recorder that plays your personal greeting available for an additional charge.

For the hopeless romantic:

You see plastic frogs and crumbling icing.

She sees a chance to fix you.

For the one who wants something sexy:

With extra sprinkles for that really intimate experience.

For the Class Act:

A temporary tattoo for a permanent affectation. "Which doesn't need a permanent tattoo, baby, 'cuz your love is a tattoo on my heart. You feel me? My heart.

"Seriously, I'm not getting your name tattooed on my chest. So stop asking."

For the kid at heart:

Hey, it's only as disturbing as you let it be.


Which, in my case, is pretty darn disturbing.

[sing-song] "Who wants to suck the icing off Barbie's leeee-eeg?"

Yup. Disturbing.

Perhaps there's a big party which I love to attend too. :-)

These cakes are just another reminder about why I don't celebrate Valentine's day.

So it seems only one other person has mentioned it, but it kind of looks like Barbie is sitting on rice. Why?

And as for the people mentioning that Barbie's legs don't move that way, well, I was going to say they have ones know that do, but when I went and looked at it again, I realized this is not one of those. So. I prefer not to think how they got her that way.

Why does Barbie look like she's about to get a pap smear?

February 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Uh, has Barbie been having some colon-rectal problems and rolling around in her own filth?

February 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Whoever thought that last cake was a good idea should be shoot in the face with a water pistol filled with whipped cream.

Seriously, that's just WRONG.

Does Barbie have an itch? It looks like what happens when my dog is dragging her butt all over the carpet. Seriously.

February 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Anybody else think the "Shag Barbie" (the rug, you pervs!) should be put next to the classic cake style from the "Hey Bebeh" post? They have the same theme going, complete with white "rug."

Although, that would be one Toy Story scenario I would NOT like to see. O_o
