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? ;)

@ Haiku Joy: Domo arigato gozaimasu! I feel the same way about you -- although you've totally corrupted me and now I always count the syllables of every 3-line poem. It's not a "K" word, but I ran across one of my favorites the other day -- "ensorcelled" -- and thought of you and your students.

Cake number 4 reminded me of a girl I saw in college years ago -- she was actually that orange color she "tanned" so much -- really scary actually!

Lol and here I thought I was the only one to see happy buttday on that one cake. Sheesh. I still laughed til I cried. Man Mickey should go haunt these wreckerators dreams tonight just to exact his revenge.

I made a Mickey cake for my son's second birthday. Keep in mind that I am nowhere near a pro and had never made a cake with anything on it but frosting and "Happy Birthday" before that. And you know what? It blows all of these out of the water. People must be blind/drunk/otherwise impaired if they can't do better than this. Heart-shaped cakes? Really? REALLY?

Always lovely to be thought of and to be sent rushing to my dictionary in the same moment. If I had to choose a favorite, favorite word, it would be a hard call between defenestration, borborygmus, and penultimate, which my mentor has elaborated into pre-antepenultimate.

Those are all terrible Mickeys. The last one is obviously Wayne Newton... ;)

The 1st picture: "Happy Birthday AND Chriss." Was it supposed to be "Aunt Chriss?"
I love Cake Wrecks!

I thought the last take was Elvis Mickey.

Am I the only one who sees "WOW Happy Butthday" on that second cake?
