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? ;)

Now That's a Bad Day

Where is the moment we needed the most?

You kick up the leaves and the Volvo is lost...

You tell me your blue skies fade to grey

Your baker still hates you, too, they say

But I don't need no carryin' on!

You fall in the line just to hit a new low

You pretend that you meant to, but everyone knows

You tell me it's hard working here offline

Your coworkers mock you all the time

But I don't need no carryin' on!

So you had a bad day

You're itching downtown,

You sing a sad song just to drown out the sound!

You say you must know,

You tell me don't lie,

Then you work on a smile and you opt for the pie.

You had a bad day!

Now that's a bad day.

This was hilarious!

I thought the first one said "cayacking" but that's not how you spell kayaking... and what happened on the kayak? Oh it's carjacking... got it.

So I have to say that I turned to cakewrecks today to cope while my toddler is crawling all over me and between rounds of (true?) (false?) (exhausting!) labor contractions. I laughed so hard at these I cried! It's not the sleep I really crave, but oh, an excellent alternative in this situation!

(Also, my toddler appreciates all pictures of cake, no matter how wrecky :)
