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? ;)

Send Up the Jolly Roger!

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, but rather than plunder the script of the Disney Pirates ride like I usually do, I've decided to instead look at that most iconic of piratey things: the Jolly Roger. 

Now, the Jolly Roger is usually a skull and crossbones on a black flag:

 

But when recreated on a cookie:

...it becomes a petrified Scottish Terrier.

Or maybe a French Poodle. Or German Shepherd. Irish Wolfhound? Oh! Norwegian Ridgeback! English Bulldog!!


Ahem.

 

For those less canine-inclined, there's also this option:

Those look like some real fun guys. Dude. 

 

Here's one that'll strike fear in the hearts of witches and wizards everywhere:

No bones about it: There is now a Dark Mark on this bakery's record. Tsk, tsk.

 

And if you think that'd be better without all the airbrushing...

You'd be right.

But it also kind of looks like a moose.

 

And finally, my personal favorite:

The Jolly Roger from American Dad.

Relax; I'm sure he means you no harrrrrrm.

 

Thanks to Alana F., Cheryl L., Melissa F., Roxanne B., & Robin H. for all the pirated material. Now, chocolate moose, anyone?

As per the first attempt at confectionary piracy, I say it's a Westie wearing a fez.

Was that supposed to be a Dark Mark? Now they're just insulting me.

And also, my arm hurts. Thank you, bakers.
