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? ;)

Er Mah Gourd!

Eek! I forgot to mention yesterday what is possibly the most popular indicator of Fall - you know, the one you see in every coffee shop, restaurant, and bakery across the nation.

Yep, I'm talking about that ubiquitous Fall flavor:


...Poop brûlée


Kidding, kidding. We all know the actual flavor of Fall is pumpkin:

...with poop on top.


Or on the side!


Or just washed down the edges.


Or whatever is happening here.


And when bakers aren't grossing us out with log-a-riffic "stem" action on their pumpkin cakes, they're busy gleefully spitting in the eye of Mother Nature:

I can just imagine them dramatically twirling their mustachios now:

 "Take THAT, nature, with your natural shapes, and your natural colors, and your sickening lack of spikes and crappy silly string. HA. Haha! AHAHAHAHAHAA!!"


 "Oh, and I always wanted my pumpkins to have a sphincter, so there."


Now, you might be questioning whether that is actually supposed to be a pumpkin.


Lest she speak of herself in the third person.

And second of all, of COURSE it's a pumpkin.

Can't you see that it's orange? And green? And brown? 




Well, don't you worry; the turkey cakes are coming.

Jen, honey, have you been drinking a bit? Because none of those look like pumpkins. No need for the voice, but I am just sayin'.

Haha this is brilliant. I can't even...where is my appetite? What is lunch? You need to do a Cakewrecks Diet Thanksgiving Special, to keep us out of the pumpkin strussel pies. UGH

Keep making "ERMERGERD" or 'ERMERGOURD" or any combination jokes. They will ALWAYS make me laugh out loud!

The stars must be right, for I'm seeing a Cthulhu theme in #2 & #3, what with the tentacles and all. Of course, they're pretty much all on a #2 theme, but, hey. Love is a many-sphinctered thing, and, so, apparently are pumpkins. At least now we know where all the poo is coming from.
