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? ;)

Six Ways to Celebrate Your New Engagement

- With giant yellow donuts:

Mmmm. Doooonuts.

- With "lots" and "lots" of "hearts."


- By planning ahead.

Way, way, WAY ahead.

- By stressing the importance of family:

Actually, Darth Vader fighting Luke in honor of an impending marriage is kind of awesome. Let's just hope your in-laws have a good sense of humor.

(And make sure the baby shower cake looks like this.)

- By comparing your new life together to violently killing things:

"Here we see the groom taking aim at his violently diarrheatic bride-to-be.

"Ah, young love."

(Don't worry, kids; he's only going to tranq her 'til the green diarrhea stops.)

Or, of course, there's always the old standby:

- A syrupy sweet public display of affection that'll leave your guests sick to their stomachs:

"Dude. Some of us are trying to eat over here!"

Thanks to Sandy S., Abbey A., Matthew W., Rachel C., Naomi H., & Jule Ann H., who are so syrupy sweet they should be on a stack of pancakes.

But I am not advocating cannibalism.

Ahaha @ Joy--

That is the same conclusion I came to recently. From now on, you'll only see me at Krispie Kreme, whatever the occasion. Everyone likes a donut, and I bet they've never once tried to pull a "Christine and Don."

Well that last cake was dated for two years ago... maybe the wreckerator finally got their cake right after all this time or am I imagining that says 2009? Sometimes my mind just wanders away lol.

@Jennifer @ 12:38: Heh heh.

@M.Dale: I didn't see the hole in the lid at first because of the other problems, but it's surenuf there. All the wreckerator had to do was knock a half-pound of frosting off each heart and the lid would have cleared.

Speaking of which, I certainly hope that gunmetal gray border is lead-free.

@Anonymous @ 5:59: Donut cake. Mmmmm! Just so it isn't done in the grand tradition of CCCs (patooie!) where a collection of innocent doughnuts who never hurt anyone are entombed in frosting. At that point, even I would draw the line. After a sample.

@Joy: Happy Thursday.

I move that the Southern California regional EPCOT shelter be located within walking distance of a Krispy Kreme store. On second thought, it should be located *in* a Krispy Kreme store. That is all.

"#4 - Luke and Darth are MALES!

Not that there's anything wrong with that..."

Well, if one of the males is named Stephanie, that seems rather unfortunate...

I think the diarrhea is meant to be landmines
