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? ;)

National *yawn* Golf Month

Contrary to popular belief, golf is not a complete waste of time. Many people, for example, use golf as a means to rid themselves of cumbersome money. Other, more talented players, actually use it as a means to rid themselves of cumbersome marriages.

"Just getting the Tiger's eye view, dear!"

Still, whatever your reasons, golf can be an "entertaining," "exciting," and "fun" "sport."

So let's look at some golf cakes, shall we?

Now, the object of golf is to hit a tiny ball... a large pile of crap. This is known as the "drop shot."

Next, assuming that you manage to hit the ball, you may end up on "the green."

So lush.

Now, golf courses come in all shapes and sizes, which allows for a wide range of difficulty, scenery, and funny faces:

"The good news is you've got a nice straight shot.

"The bad news is that ball is to scale."

Which reminds me: would you believe the term "lead foot" originated in golf?

If so, then let me tell you the one about the goofy cake blogger who knew obscure factoids about sports.

Every golfer worth his pom-pom hat/argyle knee-socks/plaid bloomers knows the importance of a great golf bag:

Which is apparently what this is.

In fact, this style of bag is known as the "Schweitzer Bag," named after the famous German golfer, Albert Bag.

And finally, let's go over some essential golf terminology:

Fore = what you yell before you whack someone with a golf ball.

For = how you indicate who gets the ugly golf cake.

"Four" = *headdesk* *headdesk* *headdesk* *headdesk*

I totally did see that too! Until I zoomed in and realized it was Luke, not Leia

If that third cake isn't Tatooine, it must be Arrakis.

I wonder if it's a spice cake.

I get in trouble every time I ride the Jungle Boat and ask if the waterfall is named after Dr. Falls. Only one guy thought it was funny. Ah, well.

Can't say I ever cared for golf much.

I don't get the golf bag joke or why it's funy, sorry?

A Disney reference in a golf post? No wonder I love you!

For some reason, when I hear "Lead Foot", I always think of the Mr. Heavyfoot character from "The Kids in the Hall":

After I saw that 3rd cake I knew I would have to do something I rarely do and that is, comment. Are my eyes going crazy or is there a little princess Leia floating around on that cake???
Poor Leia like she hasn't been through enough now she is in a golf cake wreck!

If you look at the fifth cake in the um, wrong, state of mind. Well let's just say (or better yet let's not just say and leave it at that)...

August 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJeepchic20

I dunno, the second cake kinda looks like Luke Skywalker crossing the sands of Tatooine. Are we sure it's a golf cake and not a Star Wars cake?

#3 reminds me of Princess Leia in the dessert.

Love your blog! I especially love the Jungle Cruise joke!! Albert Awol would be proud!

I agree with Rosie O'Donnell: golf is men in ugly pants walking. Of course, I'm chromosome-ally challenged as "golf" allegedly stands for "gentlemen only- ladies forbidden." (Psst: I'm a girl)

Someone else may have said this, but the host change made a whole bunch of old cake wrecks posts show up twice on my RSS... not sure why... no problem, just pointing it out

August 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSamECircle

Yay, the jump worked! New site deserves a party. With cake. Though I shudder in fear wondering what you and John could come up with.

August 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterteabunny

I think you should host a Dizgeek quote hunt-you wiggle in as many Disney Parks references as you can, and if we identify them correctly, you make us a cake. Now get out of my comment. I'm sorry, that was rude. Please get out of my comment.

I can't get over the fact that the 'golf bag' cake is a darn wedding cake! You can see the bride's dress in the background! OMG!

I just had to comment for the Jungle Cruise reference. Nice!

Can teeny golf hat
distract from cellulite lumps?
Mrs. Brown hopes so.

August 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHaiku Joy

You must be a nerdfighter. And I for one am surprised I didn't see it sooner.

If I hadn't been told, I would have thought the "lead foot" one was Jason Vorhees coming out of the ground, drooling blood and shaking his fist in the air.

August 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterIma Lemming

Erm, the "lead foot" definitely does NOT look like a foot to me. I don't even have to turn my head sideways. It's just that weird.

Can teeny golf flag
distract from cellulite lumps?
Mrs. Brown hopes so.


Let's hear it for proof-reading!

LOL, I JUST saw this! I took the picture of the golf bag cake, 9 years ago... and yes, it was real golf balls in it.

Elissa, you nailed it! That was a Happy Father's Day cake for the father who, after taking his ED pill, is once again happy.
