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? ;)

I think we quoted that in my family before we even got out of the theater! It still gets bandied about periodically. A close runner up is "say something like a sissy boy" from "Zorro the Gay Blade" which is almost as funny as "Young Frankenstein" and just as quotable.

Now, it's time to put a miserably stinky week to bed and to try and forget it ever existed- except for the most amazing posts and comments!!! I think this week's been amazing.

Hugs to Haiku Joy and friends!!

I haven't seen Richard Kind in much lately No wonder. He's a cake model now. Sweet gig! I hope he gets that thumb looked at, though.

@mindy1, my close friend's infant son was diagnosed with cancer earlier this month and passed away Wednesday. I travelled today to his visitation.

Haiku Joy,
I'm so sorry. You're in my thoughts.

January 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

@Haiku Joy: My heart wept when I read your post today. I am so sorry. I know that mere words are woefully inadequate as the sadness of the present encompasses everyone. May it comfort you to know that you are not alone, and may our caring thoughts enfold you and your friends. I wish you all peace during this heartbreaking time.

Much love going out to you, your family and friends Haiku Joy. Please know that you have friends here and like mel said, you are not alone!

Dearest Haiku Joy, my heart is with you and your friends. Grieve as you need to and don't feel "I should be brave" or "I should be past this much grief now." Grieving shows our respect for Life and the one we've lost. (((HUGS)))

Thank you, friends.

@ Haiku Joy - Sorry I'm late with my condolences. I was busy somewhat the last two days. About all I can say is: what everyone else said, particularly mel. I can only imagine what you & your friend must feel. I agree with mel - y'all are not alone. Wish I could be there for you & your friend. I know she's lucky to have you there @ this difficult time.

Sending hugs, well-wishes, and prayers to you, your friend, & her family,

KarateLady & KarateLady's Daughter (she's gonna bawl when I tell her...)

Is it just me, or do the sprinkles on the last cake look like Chicklets gum? You know, the tiny fruit flavored multi colored gum? Probably just me.

January 27, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRikki

@ Rikki - crumby gum and gummy cake - yum!
