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? ;)

Making New Friends

In an effort to get to know you readers a bit better, today I thought we'd have one of you introduce yourselves. You know, foster a little more community and whatnot.

So, take it away, Debbie!

Hello! My name is Debbie, and this is my first attempt at a Cake Wrecks bio. So I'm nervous, but excited at the same time! Wheee!

So, I'm just going to start talking about what I like, and hope you like it!

Um. Let's see. I am... a relatively new Cake Wrecks reader. Um. I love...


I love every kind of cat.

I love cats with fur, and cats without fur, and cats in hats, and cats that don't even look like cats...


I'm sorry. I just...I just really love cats.

[wiping eyes]

And...and I just want to hug all of them because I love them but I can't 'cuz that's crazy I can't hug every cat. BUT I WANT TO. You know? I WANT TO HUG EVERY CAT.

[blowing nose]

Um. Wow. Sorry - I got a little emotional there. Heh.

I also like


I'm sorry; I'm thinking about cats again.

I just...I just LOVE them, and I WANT them. I want them in a basket, and I want them in little bow ties, and I want them to be on a rainbow, and I want a house FULL OF CATS and we would all ROLL AROUND...

[more sobbing]

'Cuz they're all just so CUTE with their little whiskers...

...and their little ears...

...and their little delicious vital organs...

So, yeah. I guess you could say I'm a cat lover.


And I like to run.

Thanks to Minyassa, David G., Judy E., Briana T., Rachel R., Nancy S., Michelle F., Emily Z., & Stewart C., who are also inspired to run. Far, far away.

And if you haven't seen the live action version of today's post yet, here 'tis:

I started sneezing as soon as I started reading this. No chance of me turning into a "Debbie". Hives, indeed.

Oh, Haiku Joy - that was a gut buster!

Ok, there were waay too many comments to read through, but I immediately knew what this post was about, mainly because of Paul Klusman's (of engineer's guide to cats) video response to that video!!

Is this video for real?! I laughed my ass off. Seriously, who cries over cats!

I saw this and knew immediately where we were going... Priceless...

I've always wondered what it would look like if a pig gave birth to a cat, and thanks to cake #1, I now know. One more check off my bucket list!

I'd like to know where the disected cat cake came from. Looks like something my Titusville high school anatomy and physiology teacher would have endorsed.

That video is the most funny I've EVER heard!!!! :D

I'm thinking about cats again...

I kinda love the disected cat one.

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAndreanna Glamasaurus

I laughed so loud when she started talking about how hugging ALL the cats would be crazy. Yes, because that's the crazy part,

June 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That can't be real.

Imagine the psychotic event if Debbie received the vivisection cake.

Great tie-in...when I saw this link in a "Life with Dogs" article comment, I was a little confused. Then the pictures made everything clear!

I'm pretty sure the orange tiger-stripe cake was made in a cake pan intended to be used for bachelorette party cakes. It's penis-shaped but painted to look like a cat.

Also, I wonder how many responses Debbie received from men just dying to date "crazy cat lady."
