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? ;)

How It Might Have Happened

"Hello? Yes, I'd like to order a cake that looks like my husband's Audi. That's right, an Audi. And could you make it a nice coppery brown? Thanks!"


[Later that day]






Alisha E., don't tell me that's not really what happened, because I choose to believe it is. So there.

My 3yo just clicked on this cake from the bottom of the front page, and immediately said, "Ewwwwww, gross! Mommy, that guy has POO-POO on his belly!"

I accidentally bit my tongue laughing at this!

I don't usually go hnarhkh! at the moment I get a joke, but this one made it happen - the great thing is, for a moment I thought it was true, that that was the ordered Audi - OK, now the more conventional giggle-snort 8^D
