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? ;)

A "Cake" With Reel Sole

In honor of International Sushi Day, I've reached way, WAY back into the CW archives for my favorite punny post. Enjoy!

You guys, I've been e-mailed this "cake" so often I'm getting a haddock, and I'm starting to think there's something fishy going on. Did the cake's non-baker shellfishly do this on porpoise? I'm not hard of herring, you know; I just can't fathom why you all would want a sushi "cake" on Wrecks. But then I figured, hey, maybe I'm just being crabby - why not post the photo?

You know, for the halibut.


Thanks to the roughly half-zillion of you out there who sent me this link. (Click for recipe & directions.)

And before you ask, why yes, I am a Dr. Demento fan. 


(So, did I miss any fish puns? Don't be koi and leave me to flounder; let minnow!)

Wahoo! These are fun! Permit to say these puns are Spot on. Much laughing, groaning, and rolling of the eyes here. I've gained much knowledge in the past 5 minutes.

My Mom always taught me, if you can't say something nice, clam up.

Yuck..what the kelp were these wreckerators thinking?? I don't know if I will ever try sushi now and seeing this thing makes me glad to avoid it lol. Guess it was for a wedding of sushi/rubber duck lovers?

I think Theadare is in kitty nirvana with this one guys! Maybe we can keep the wreckorator on standby for bunker / high heel situations. :)

Too bad Skrillex isn't on here -- he can really drop the bass.

Wait for it...

COD knows how you'd cut into that without a STURGEON'S help...

Serene ducks surmount
green flotsam. Are those Fordhooks?
Or edamame?

I gig-eel-ed uncontrollably at this. But I'm disappointed that there weren't any eel pictures after the puns!

my mother said "the colors are nice but it's not to scale."
me? I got nuthin' but I've been under a lot of pressure lately.

That's right, @ScaperMama, cats do like fish.


That ought to keep him satisfied for a while...
