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? ;)

One of These Things is Not Like the Other

How long will it take you to spot it?

Thanks to Liz T., who says this is why you never order Valentine cookies from a baker who's recently been dumped. (True story.)

When I first read it, I thought it said "HOG BAG," but then I looked closer and saw "HOE BAG." I don't know which is worse...

It took me a shockingly long time! I think I had to look, and then look away like three or four times before I got it.

I know it's not cake and it's completely unrelated but...." rel="nofollow">

There should be a law to prevent cakes such as these. These cakes are just......WRONG!

I actually snorted. Like a real, live pig.

That's good. That's real good.

Am I the only one who thinks it looks more like "Hog Bag"?

Too funny, the sneaky little bugger! Too bad they couldn't even spell that right :)

I know this will sound unbelievable but when I was about 14 I bought some of those candies with the sayings on them. My friend and I were taping them to the walls surrounding our favorite posters. I got a candy that said DEAD LEGS. For real. I kept that thing for the longest time to show people and finally lost it :(
