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? ;)

I love the idea behind the last one, especially if you did it in four or more segments. I would have a hard time choosing one cake style, so that's a way to get four different cakes in one. I wonder how many segments you could divide it into before they start getting too small on the top tier?
