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? ;)

Father's Day Pictionary

Looking for a fun bonding experience with Dad this weekend? Then how about a little cake Pictionary? It's easy! Here, I'll get you started.

Is this:

A) A sofa

B) A ball cap


C) Worth $3.99

The answer, of course, is D.

See? Easy!

Ok, your turn.

Is this:

A) An exploding cup of hot chocolate

B) A golf bag


C) An appropriate use of an ellipsis

("Aaand the results are in! Happy Father's Day... Bobby! That means Carlos, Jimmy, Leon, Billy, Brad and Tony are NOT the fathers!"



Okay, now here's a tough one. Prepare for multiple multiple choices!

Is this:

A) A chubby bearded pirate with a missing foot sitting on a stack of marshmallows

B) Santa's love handles

C) The Hamburgler, turned inside out

D) Pretty much anything except a grill


E) Still more appetizing than this:

Ok, so maybe that wasn't so hard, after all.

Thanks to Sarah J., Amnesty, Kimberly M., & Rachel M. for playing!


Please tell me in the comments, because I have no friggin' idea.

Thank you.

That last one reminds me of "Cow Tools," by Gary Larson.

Okay here's my guess - you have to let me know if I win a Dewey Button for those (my dad always asked if we wanted one of those)...

1)Baseball Cap
2)A Golf Bag filled with an explosive amount of root beer (guess someone shook it).
3)This cake caused some dissension. I thought it was a grill or a hamburger. My twelve year old said it is quite obviously a throne. And while she meant a King's throne, after I looked at the picture and saw the uneven leg with the white spot and the block of white next to it, I realized that the block of white could indeed be toilet paper and the uneven legs the pipes - so it could be a throne. However, my seven year old just delcared it disgusting. I think he might be right.

4.)Is a tool box with a hammer made of poo, a wrench, the world's smallest ruler that mom obviously used as an inside joke, err insult to dad as I have never seen a two inch ruler before, and two bolts, and I do believe that the blue round thing with the green sprinkles might be a tape measure going with the ruler above, or a box of nails or screws, which when looking at the wrench makes sense in a phallic kind of way :-P

The first one is blues c lues(the cute dog from that show)without a face.

The second one is an exploding backpack.

The third cake is a really fat walrus in a pink hat, shirt, and skirt combo, siting on an invisible iceberg.

1) Blues c lues (the cute little dog from the kids show) without a face.

2) A backpack full of exploding root beer.

3) A REALLY fat walrus wearing a pink hat, shirt, and skirt combo, while siting on an invisible iceberg.

4) An edible dog care kit, complete with a dog bone, a water bowl, two blue tennis balls, food, and a ruler(for disciplinary reasons unfortunately.)

that last one looks like it's got blue balls on a fairly below average endowed man. (according to that ruler).

I thought for a second that the first one was the "thinking chair" from Blue's Clues. Then I remembered that it's red. I still think the cake is Blue's Clues related somehow, though. I think we NEED Blue's Clues to solve this one!

1. It's a CCC, duh! Need we say more?

2. It's hot chocolate in a golf bag-shaped mug.

3. It's another CCC (ptui), need I say more?

4. A hammer, a wrench, a ruler, some coleslaw, and cupcakes. Every carpenter needs his lunch.

wv. hyphev -- I identified these pictures and could read the wv, give me a hyphev

#4 Fish, French fries, & chocolate.

WV- luteths We had to be a couple of 'lueths to figure these wrecks out!

I thought the third one was a catcher (like in baseball). With...a bag of baseballs hanging off his belt?

You need to turn the last one upside down, the green and blue "grass" actually says Happy Father's Day. It also makes the ruler the correct way up!
