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? ;)

The Presidential Pastry Debate

Below is an excerpt from last night's debate between current cake commissioner Rex M. Mall and his challenger, Ida Eatondat. 

Mall: "Ladies and gentlemen, my opponent would have you believe she's rooting for the common baker, but I tell you the word 'congratulations' isn't even in her vocabulary.

"And she's also terrible with apostrophes."


Eatondat: "Don't let Mr. Mall distract you with hearsay, my friends. We all know he's in the pocket of Big Frosting."

"In fact, my recent investigation has proven that his new line of 'iced shakes' are, in fact, solid Buttercream icing."


Mall: "Hey, at least my product is edible. How long did you work for the Plastic Flotsam Corporation, again, Ida?"

Eatondat: "That was years ago! I was young! And most customers knew not to eat the plastic! Plus technically I was never convicted."


Moderator: "Yes, let's try to keep it civil, candidates, plea..."

 Mall: "Oh yeah? Well, SHE EATS BABIES!"


 Eatondat: "Only half of one! And just at that one shower! Besides... uh... [pointing at Mall] HE MAKES CUPCAKE CAKES!"

 [audible gasps from the audience]


Eatondat: "That's right, LOTS of cupcake cakes! With airbrushing! And curly ribbon! And this one is supposed to be a guitar!"

[several audience members faint]

 Moderator: "Do you have anything to say for yourself, Mr. Mall?"


Mall: "Yes. I'm Batman."

Moderator: "That says you're the 6th Jeffery."



Thanks to Janet P., Candice H., Gabby G., Marianne W., Autumn R., Ed H., & Anony S., who only wish last night's debate had been this entertaining.

Actually the frosting label say light n fluffy frosting hinting that it would be BETTERCREME notice the spelling better not butter. Being a cake decorator it's not bettercreme but traditional frosting which is also called buttercreme again looking at the spelling. Second thats standard frosting that all big grocery stores use and it's made in georgia and shipped all over.So you can say its gross and the colors are horrible but thats what you see in any grocery store bakery. Just sayinggg.

Apparantly, the class of '12 belongs to Congrualation, whoever that is.

Every time I see "congratulations" written anywhere I find myself pronouncing it "cngurgltions" now :)

And why is there a dead squid on the first one?
