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? ;)

Can I quote you on that?

Thanks to Becky's daughter Amy C. for the, uh, recommendation. I'm sure we'll all keep it in mind the next time we're "wookin' pa nub."

Hate to be a killjoy, but I looked at the cake, saw 'A very nice day' and wondered where the wreck was.

Then I read the comments. I think the style of writing is very old and I'm extremely sad to say that I can read it because that makes me very old too.

When I think of the type of lei I'd like to be remembered as it wouldn't be "wise" but (beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep) or (beeep-beeep-beeeeeep).

Lmao!! The entire cake was gorgeous until you got the wise lay comment. Man I really hope they did not pay for that although if they did they could quickly cut a piece out of the lay part lol.

Maybe Becky is very experienced in this area, and seeking her out is a wise choice. Meanwhile, what was that third 'Buckwheat' song? The one called '???????'

I never comment because, well, you usually say it all, but I have to tell you I just about peed myself (TMI?) on this one - this was one Eddie Murphy bit I've howled at every time I see it, and every time I hear one of the real songs I can't help but hear Buhwhea's version in my head...
